Like most website operators, SchoolWebby and our parent company, Cluster8 Pte Ltd, collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. SchoolWebby’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SchoolWebby’s visitors use its website. From time to time, SchoolWebby may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
SchoolWebby also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on SchoolWebby.com websites. SchoolWebby only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that website commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the website where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to SchoolWebby’s websites choose to interact with SchoolWebby in ways that require SchoolWebby to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SchoolWebby gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a website at SchoolWebby.com to provide a username and in some cases, an email address and phone number. Those who engage in transactions with SchoolWebby – by upgrading to a Pro account, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, SchoolWebby collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SchoolWebby. SchoolWebby does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
SchoolWebby may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, SchoolWebby may monitor the most popular websites on the SchoolWebby site or use spam screened by our filters to help identify spam. SchoolWebby may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, SchoolWebby does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
SchoolWebby uses Google Analytics for stat tracking including Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. These stats are never shared, sold, or used for purposes other than to understand our visitors and improve our service.
Using Ads Settings, visitors can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
SchoolWebby discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on SchoolWebby’s behalf or to provide services available at SchoolWebby’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using SchoolWebby’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. SchoolWebby will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, SchoolWebby discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when SchoolWebby believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SchoolWebby, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an SchoolWebby website and have supplied your email address, SchoolWebby may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with SchoolWebby and our products. We primarily use our various product websites to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. SchoolWebby takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
