Do we disclose any information to outside third parties?

Do we disclose any information to outside third parties?Liberty Day will never sell your information to outside third parties. We reserve the right to employ companies to assist us with such functions as hosting our donor information database, sending postal mail and e-mail, modeling our data, organizing fundraiser events, processing online and mail donations and credit card payments and to perform various administrative tasks. These companies may have access to personally identifying information about you, but only to the extent needed to perform their functions. Liberty Day requires that these companies keep such information confidential, to use it only for the purpose authorized by you, and to delete this information after performing these services. In case Liberty Day or one of our affiliates is acquired, we may transfer personal information to the successor, provided that the successor is subject to these same privacy commitments for previously collected personal information. Please be advised that we may disclose personally identifying information about you to the government or to third parties pursuant to law enforcement inquiries, court orders, subpoenas and similar requests, or when we otherwise believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate in connection with any activity that violates the law or may expose us to liability.

What about the disclosure of an Educator’s identity on this website?

If an Educator becomes a member of this Website, he or she currently will have no way of reflecting their name with others outside of Liberty Day’s administrative account. Personal information regarding an Educator that is collected includes: a unique Username, first name, last name, email address, school name, school state, and school zipcode. Additional information may be collected if an Educator independently decides to make an online purchase of materials. None of this information is shared with other third parties unless otherwise noted in this Privacy Policy. If you join the Liberty Day website to create a new "class" by entering an Access Code, please only enter the Access Code(s) which has (have) been given to you in your Resource Packet. Please do not share your Access Code with any other Educator. Users may not post any additional information pertaining to their identity or other personal items on our site.

Can you access, edit, and delete your personal information from our website?

If you would like to request deletion of your account, please email us at mail@libertyday.org. Liberty Day may delete the accounts of users who have not signed into the Website for 12 months. 

How is personal information secured on this site?

The personally identifying information that you provide is stored in an encrypted MySQL database. Liberty Day regularly assesses and adjusts the safeguards it uses to protect your information. You should be aware, however, that "perfect security" does not exist; third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications and Liberty Day makes no representation, warranty or guarantee that our Services are protected from viruses, security threats or other vulnerabilities or that your information will always be secure. You hereby acknowledge that we are not responsible for any intercepted information sent via the Internet, and you hereby release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of intercepted information in any unauthorized manner. If we become aware of any security breach which we know has resulted in unauthorized access of your personally identifying information, then we will endeavor to inform you of that breach as soon as it is practicable for us to do so; however, this notification may be delayed while law enforcement conducts any investigation.

How do we handle cookies?

Cookies are small text files that a website transfers to a website visitor's hard disk or browser for added functionality, or for tracking website usage. We use cookies in a limited capacity (e.g., cookies "expire" at the end of your user session). Our cookies do not capture or store any personally identifying information about you, or any data about your past usage of our Website. We use information captured by cookies only for de-identified statistical analysis, and to tailor our communications with the public.

How do we comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance?

Liberty Day treats the security of students’ personal information with the utmost seriousness and respect. We welcome children to learn more about our organization and about the educational issues presented on our Website, and to utilize the learning and assessment technologies provided. We encourage parents, guardians and educators to monitor their children's use of the Internet and to help us protect their privacy by instructing them never to provide personal information on this Website or any of our Services without permission. We will never attempt to extract unnecessary information from our users, regardless of age. Consistent with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 ("COPPA"), we will never knowingly request personally identifying information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. The only information collected from users under the age of 13 (“Students”) is their unique username, password and the class/school to which they are associated. Participating class data is encrypted, and no personally-identifying information (name, email) is knowingly collected by Liberty Day. All we can see are student usernames and assessment results, in association with the class to which they have been assigned. If a child under the age of 13 wishes to sign up for a user account on our Website, he or she must follow the same process of all students, regardless of age. A student’s Educator must first create an account. Students are then authorized and able to access and use a Student Account ONLY when provided by the Educator with a Class ID that is unique to the student’s particular class. Educators may monitor the collected information or delete any Student Account altogether from all Liberty Day Website and databases using the Dashboard. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with inappropriate and personally-identifying information, we will use our best efforts to remove such information from our files. If a parent, guardian, or relevant Educator becomes aware that a child under 13 has provided such information to us, he or she should contact us at mail@libertyday.org so that we may deactivate the user account and remove all personally identifying information from our Website and databases.

How might this privacy policy be changed?

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time, so it is advisable to review it frequently. Changes to this Privacy Policy will be announced on our Website, and all non-material amended terms shall automatically be effective immediately. If the changes are material, we will provide notice through email, this Website, or other means and obtain consent before implementing such changes.
