ShalomLearning is committed to providing a fun, friendly and safe Jewish learning environment combining traditional classroom training with technology based content for students of all ages (“Services”).
ShalomLearning is very sensitive to privacy issues with respect to children, especially those under the age of 13. Please see below for more information on how ShalomLearning addresses our Students’ privacy issues generally and also under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), a U.S. law that governs the use and collection of information online from children under the age of 13. We encourage parents and our partners to regularly monitor and supervise our Students’ online activities.
The Information We Collect, How We Collect It and How We Use It
In order to use the Site, Students are required to give contact information such as first and last name; home address; home and mobile phone numbers; and an email address. ShalomLearning requires Students under the age of 13 to provide a parent’s full name and a parent’s email address so that we may send the parent an email message that can be used to activate the ShalomLearning account for the Student. Students 13 or older may provide their own email address or that of their parents. If the Student/Parent are paying for the Service directly and not through a Partner, ShalomLearning will request credit card billing information including the billing address for the credit card.
If financial information such as credit card billing information is provided, we will only use the financial information for processing payments to ShalomLearning. The financial information that a Student may enter to pay for the Services is not stored by ShalomLearning, but instead it will be retained by a payment processing vendor(s) for the purpose of processing credit card payments to ShalomLearning.
As part of the registration process, we may also require Students to provide limited demographic information including birth date. We encourage Students to submit this information so that we can provide our Services tailored to the Students’ needs and education level.
Although we do not generally give a Student’s personal identifiable information to third parties, we may disclose a Student’s information to our third party support vendors that provide technical support or other services, in order to help perform statistical analysis, data analysis, audits, or if applicable, a credit card processing company to bill a Student for the services.
ShalomLearning may also use a Student’s contact information when sending out updates regarding new features, parent announcements and information via our bulletin page. We also may use this contact information if we need to contact Students and/or their parents directly regarding any customer service queries a Student submits, such as password retrieval.
Parents of Students under the age of 13 have certain rights under COPPA and ShalomLearning recognizes those rights. Parents can consent to the collection and use of a Student’s personally identifiable information without consenting to the disclosure of information to third parties. We will not knowingly register children under the age of 13 years old on our Site without parental consent. Without parental consent, a child under the age of 13 cannot use any of the Site features. If a parent does not provide consent within a reasonable period of time, we will delete the information provided during the registration process.
A Student’s participation or access to the Site is not conditioned on the Student providing more personal information than is reasonably necessary for access to the curriculum. Parents can also review information their children have contributed to the Site, request that certain information be deleted, and refuse to allow ShalomLearning to collect further information from their child by contacting ShalomLearning’s customer support department at firstname.lastname@example.org. Parents should include their child’s username and the registered parent’s email address in the email so we can better assist you with your inquiry or request. ShalomLearning may ask additional questions or take other steps to verify the identity of the parents before responding to a request to review or delete their child’s information, or a request to further collect information from the child.
Links to Third Party Websites
Information Sharing and Disclosure
ShalomLearning owns the information on its Site. ShalomLearning does not share, rent, or trade personally identifying information about our Students, including children under the age of 13, with non-affiliated third parties (i.e., companies who are not one of our affiliates or who are not providing support to the internal operations of our company) for their promotional purposes. ShalomLearning makes every reasonable effort to disallow and discourage Students and children from sharing personally identifying information with each other via the Site features. The only personal identifiable information that ShalomLearning openly shares on the Site is the Student’s name.
Updating Personally Identifiable Information
If a Student’s personally identifiable information changes, or if the Student no longer use the Site, the Student or his/her parents or ShalomLearning’s partner may correct, update, amend, delete/remove or deactivate the Student’s access to the Site by emailing our customer support team at email@example.com or by contacting us by mail at the contact information below. We will respond to the request to change the information within a reasonable amount of time.
Confidential and Secure Personal Information
We work hard to protect our Students’ personal information. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect our Students’ personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We use both technical and procedural methods to maintain the security and integrity of our databases, including giving unique username and password for access to the Site, SSL encryption for data transfer, firewalls and restricted access to data.
However, the safety and security also depends on the Student. Students should never share their passwords with anyone else and Students should always logoff before leaving their computer. If you believe someone has accessed a Student’s account without permission, please contact us immediately.
If you have any questions about security on the Site, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
