The Canadian Online Homeschool Conference believes that privacy is important to the success and use of the Internet. This statement sets forth our policy and describes the practices that we will follow with respect to the privacy of the information of users of this site. Should you have any questions about this policy or our practices, please send an email to [email protected]

What Personal Information We Collect

Canadian Online Homeschool Conference collects your personal information online only when you voluntarily provide it to us.

We also collect information that will allow you to establish a username and password to access areas such as the learning management system and chat programs.

How to Review and Change Your Personal Information

When you register for the conference, your email / name will be added to an email list to give you information about the event. To remove yourself from this list, simply click the “unsubscribe” option at the bottom of the email. If you enroll for the learning management system account, you may review and change your personal information by logging into http://canadianhomeschoolconference.com/my-courses, and clicking “Edit Account.”

How We Use Personal Information That We Collect Online

Internal Uses

We may use your personal information within Canadian Online Homeschool Conference to: (1) to provide you access to our conference materials; (2) to answer questions about our services; billing, payment methods or use of our website; (3) to process or collect payments for our services, (4) to conduct customer surveys; and (5) to contact you about the products and services that we offer.

Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties

We will not disclose any personal information to any third party unless (1) you have authorized us to do so; (2) we are legally required to do so, for example, in response to a subpoena, court order or other legal process and/or, (3) it is necessary to protect our property rights related to this website. We also may share aggregate, non-personal information about website usage with unaffiliated third parties. This aggregate information does not contain any personal information about our users.

Cookie Placement

This website websites, like many other commercial sites, may use a standard technology called “cookies” to collect information about how our site is used. Cookies were designed to help a website operator determine that a particular user had visited the site previously and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set. We may use cookies to keep track of information about your current web browsing session which will be discarded as soon as you log out or close your web browser. This information also allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our site and for what purpose. We may also make use of “persistent or memory based” cookies, which remain on your computer’s hard drive until you delete them. An example of our use of these cookies is to pre-populate forms you complete on our website based on information you have previously provided to us. Although you have the ability to modify your browser to either accept all cookies, notify you when a cookie is sent, or reject all cookies, it may not be possible to utilize our services if you reject cookies.

Canadian Online Homeschool Conference uses the services of Google Analytics, and may use other similar services, to collect and analyze statistical data about visitors to our website. This analytic service does not collect personally identifiable information. You may elect to opt out of the use of non-personally identifiable data by Google Analytics by downloading and installing an add-on to your web browser found here. You may find out more about how Google Analytics collects and processes data by visiting “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps,” found here.

How We Protect Information Online

We exercise great care to protect your personal information. This includes, among other things, using industry standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, and intrusion detection. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us. This is especially true for information you transmit to us via email since we have no way of protecting that information until it reaches us since email does not have the security features that are built into our websites.

We review our security arrangements from time to time as we deem appropriate.

How can you help protect your information?

We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Also remember to sign out of the website and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if others have access to your computer.

 

Links to Other Sites

We want to provide site visitors valuable information, services and products. Featured programs, advertisements, and other site content within the Canadian Online Homeschool Conference site may link our users to third party sites. Canadian Online Homeschool Conference does not control and is not responsible for practices of any third-party websites.

Note

From time to time, we may change this privacy statement. For example, as we update and improve our services, new features may require modifications to the privacy statement. It is possible that in the future the Canadian Online Homeschool Conference will change ownership. At that time, this privacy policy may change. Accordingly, please check back periodically.
