In order to gain access to the Site and take advantage of the Services, you will need to provide information as part of a registration process. CTE Online requests this information from you in order to enhance, quantify and measure your use of the Site. Our registration form will also ask you to give us your contact information (name, telephone number and email address) and demographic and professional information (like school district, grade level(s) and subject(s) taught).
Your name, institution (school), groups and other shared or public profile information available to all users of the Service can be used both within the CTE Online site and Service for organization of users, groups, work affiliations, assessment of use trends, and outside of the CTE Online site and Service for reporting to project stakeholders, funding agencies, resource contribution partners, and related research endeavors that work as affiliate projects in conjunction with CTE Online as a partner within the Federal Learning Registry Project ( www.learningregistry.org) and potentially other such projects in the future without notice.
What information do we collect?
We collect information from you when you first register on our site, and whenever you respond to a survey or fill out a form.
When registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number or Institution. However, you may also visit our site anonymously.
What do we use your information for?
Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
How do we protect your information?
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your unshared or nonpublic personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing your account, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential and inside production and development environments of the Service. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for assessment of resources, research on use-trends, and reporting of paradata to external partners as a means to improve service and support to educators. Additionally, by using the Site, you acknowledge and agree that Internet transmissions are never completely private or secure. You understand that any message or information you send to the Site may be monitored, read or intercepted by the Service or others, even if there is a special notice that a particular transmission (for example, credit card information) is encrypted.
Third party links
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
California Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
Because we value your privacy, we have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act. We therefore will not distribute your personal information to outside parties without your consent.
Children's Internet Protection Act Compliance
The Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) is a federal law enacted by Congress to address concerns about access to offensive content over the Internet on school and library computers. CIPA imposes certain types of requirements on any school or library that receives funding for Internet access or internal connections from the E-rate program - a program that makes certain communications technology more affordable for eligible schools and libraries. In early 2001, the FCC issued rules implementing CIPA.
Do Not Track (DNT)
CTE Online does not track you over time and across websites to provide advertisements and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT). Other third party services such as Google Analytics may be employed or embedded which do track your browsing over time and across websites to provide you with relevant and targeted information and advertising.
