How does Learner-Centered Initiatives, Ltd. gather information?
 
Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, e-mail address, format preference (HTML vs. Text), address, phone number, and similar information.  In various places on our website, we gather email addresses and other basic contact information for the purpose of allowing people to subscribe to our newsletter. We also gather contact information from individuals who purchase products (both paper and online products) in order to communicate with them about the status of their order.
 
We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors such as social security numbers.  Our website may set "cookies" for the purpose of collecting aggregate statistics about the total number of visitors to our website.  We do not store any personally identifiable information in cookies.
 
How does Learner-Centered Initiatives, Ltd. use personally identifiable information?

Learner-Centered Initiatives, Ltd. hosts its own website but partners with service providers to distribute other online publications.  Third-party service providers are not permitted to use or share any personally identifiable information that we provide to them.  Learner-Centered Initiatives, Ltd. does not share any of the personally identifiable information it collects with other outside parties, unless it has received specific permission to do so.

At some point in time, this information may be used to personalize the publications and other information individuals receive from Learner-Centered Initiatives, Ltd.
 
Like most website operators, our web servers create log files. These track data on Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to enable us to administer the site, analyze trends, track user movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Server log files do not contain personally identifiable information.
 
How does Learner-Centered Initiatives, Ltd. protect personally identifiable information?

Learner-Centered Initiatives, Ltd. takes every precaution to protect our users' information.

When our website asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry.
 
We also do everything in our power to protect user information off-line.  All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices.  Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information.  All of our databases are password-protected to ensure that unauthorized users cannot access sensitive data.
