NOBEL LEARNING COMMUNITIES, INC.
PRIVACY POLICY 
12.15.2015

Nobel Learning Communities, Inc. (“NLCI,” “we,” or “us”) has developed this privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) to demonstrate our commitment to protecting your privacy and we encourage you to read it carefully. The Privacy Policy is intended to describe for you, as an individual who is a visitor or user of a website or web presence owned or operated by NLCI or its affiliates (collectively, the “Websites”), the information we collect, how that information may be used, with whom it may be shared, and your choices about such uses and disclosures. By using the Websites, you are consenting to the practices described in this Privacy Policy. Any capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy will carry the meaning given to such terms in our Website Terms of Use (the “Terms”), posted on each of the Websites.

What Information Do We Collect About You?

We collect any information you enter on the Websites. The information that we collect may vary, but our  forms on the Websites generally require that you provide us with your first name, last name, address, city, state, zip code, email address, phone number, how you heard about us, reason for contact, and your child’s age.

We also may use various technologies to collect information from your computer and about your activities on the Websites.

  • We may automatically collect information from your browser when you visit the Websites. This information would include your IP address, your browser type and language, operating system, webpages you view, links you click, device ID, length of time you visit our site, page views, click-stream information, referring URL and the content of any undeleted cookies that your browser previously accepted from us.
  • When you visit the Websites, we may assign your computer one or more cookies to facilitate access to the Websites and to personalize your online experience. Through the use of a cookie, we also may automatically collect information about your online activity on the Websites, such as the web pages you visit, the links you click, and the searches you conduct on the Websites. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you choose to decline cookies, please note that you may not be able to sign in or use some of the interactive features offered on the Websites.
  • We may use standard internet technology, such as web beacons and other similar technologies, to track your use of the Websites. We also may include web beacons in our e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. The information we may obtain in this manner would enable us to customize the services we offer to visitors of the Websites and to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, programming or other activities.

How Do We Use The Information We Collect From You?

Generally, we use your information for such purposes as operating the Websites, providing the services offered by the Websites and providing customer support, communicating with you, performing analysis about your use of and interest in the offerings and content on the Websites, managing our day-to-day business, and performing functions as otherwise described to you at the time of collection.

With Whom Do We Share Your Information?

We may share your personal information with our affiliated companies and with authorized service providers that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include processing credit card payments (if applicable), providing customer service and marketing assistance, performing business and sales analysis, conducting research surveys, supporting the Websites’ functionality and other features that may be offered through the Websites.

Any third parties to whom we may disclose personal information may have their own privacy policies which describe how they use and disclose personal information. Those policies will govern use, handling and disclosure of your personal information once we have shared it with those third parties as described in this Privacy Policy.

We may also disclose your information in response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us, in our sole discretion. We may also disclose your information when we believe it is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, report or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of you, your child, NLCI, our employees, or the public; to comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement; or to enforce our terms and conditions or other agreements or policies. Likewise, we may disclose your information in connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as a merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.

We may share aggregated and non-personal information we collect under any of the previously mentioned circumstances. We may share aggregated information with third parties, for the purpose of conducting general operational and business analysis and to develop and improve the Websites. For example, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors to the Websites and the most popular features or services accessed.

Does This Privacy Policy Govern Third-Party Websites?

There may be places on the Websites where you may click on a link to access other websites that do not operate under this Privacy Policy. In addition, you may be logged into a third party website, such as a social media site, while browsing the Websites. These third-party websites may independently solicit and collect information, including personal information, from you and, in some instances, provide us with information about your activities on those websites. We recommend that you consult the privacy statements of all third-party websites you visit by clicking on the “privacy” link typically located at the bottom of the webpage you are visiting.

What Are Your Choices About Collection And Use Of Your Information?

You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but that may result in you being unable to use certain features of the Websites because such information may be required in order to utilize services on the Websites or to contact us for information.

When you contact us through the Websites, you will be set up to receive email messages unless you indicate that you do not wish to receive emails.  At any time you can choose to no longer receive such emails by following the instructions found in the emails.

How Do We Protect Your Personal Information?

We take appropriate security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. We want you to feel confident using the Websites; however, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, it is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer or other internet access device.

Although we take steps to secure your information, we do not guarantee the security of your information, and you should not expect that your personal information, searches, or other communications will always remain secure. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s website at www.consumer.ftc.gov for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft.

No Collection of Information from Children

The Websites are intended for use by adults only. NLCI does not solicit or knowingly collect any information from visitors under 18 years of age. Please do not use the Websites if you are not yet 18.

California Disclosures

For residents of California, California Bus. & Prof. Code § 22575 seeks disclosure of how the Websites respond to web browser “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personal information about their online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. Although it’s not clear that the statute applies, and although it does not define such signals or mechanisms, we believe that an example might be a browser option allowing you to ask websites not to track you across third-party websites so that they can serve targeted or behavioral advertising to you. If your browser or similar mechanism gives the Websites a “do not track” signal, the Websites will not honor it because of the tracking described in “What Information Do We Collect About You?”

A business subject to California Civil Code § 1798.83 is required to disclose to its California customers, upon request, the identity of any third parties to whom the business has disclosed personal information for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes within the previous calendar year, along with the type of personal information disclosed. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to the address specified below. Please note that under California law businesses are only required to respond to a customer request once during any calendar year.

Visiting Our Websites from Outside the United States

This Privacy Policy is intended to cover collection of information on or via the Websites from residents of the United States. If you are visiting the Websites from outside the United States, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States where our servers are located and our central database is operated. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country. Please be assured that we seek to take reasonable steps to ensure that your privacy is protected. By using the Websites, you understand that your information may be transferred to our facilities and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this privacy policy.

No Rights of Third Parties

This Privacy Policy does not create rights enforceable by third parties or require disclosure of any personal information relating to users.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

We will occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in our practices and services. When we post changes to this Privacy Policy, we will revise the date at the top of this Privacy Policy. If we make any material changes in the way we collect, use, and/or share your personal information, we will notify you by sending an email to the email address you most recently provided us in your account, profile or registration (unless we do not have such an email address), and/or by prominently posting notice of the changes on the Websites. We recommend that you check the Websites from time to time to inform yourself of any changes in this Privacy Policy or any of our other policies.
