The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your SchoolCalendars.org experience. Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our stores, and communicating with you.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses SchoolCalendars.org or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of SchoolCalendars.org on other Web sites. Mobile: When you download or use apps created by SchoolCalendars.org or our subsidiaries/third parties, we may receive information about your location and your mobile device, including a unique identifier for your device. We may use this information to provide you with location-based services, such as advertising, search results, and other personalized content. Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services.
E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from SchoolCalendars.org if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your Communications Preferences in your ACCOUNT SETTINGS.
Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.
Cookies are unique identifiers that we transfer to your device to enable our systems to recognize your device and to provide features such as a list of favorite schools/districts, personalized advertisements on other Web sites, and storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below and with subsidiaries or third parties which have controls that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.
Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We work closely with affiliated businesses. In some cases, these businesses operate stores, some of which may be at Amazon.com, or Walmart.com, or they may sell offerings to you through Amazon.com, Walmart.com, or other third parties. In other cases, we operate stores, provide services, or sell product lines jointly with these businesses. You can tell when a third party is involved in your transactions, and we share customer information related to those transactions with that third party.
Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Promotional Offers: Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of SchoolCalendars.org customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business your name and address. If you do not want to receive such offers, please adjust your Communications Preferences in your ACCOUNT SETTINGS.
Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that SchoolCalendars.org., or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
Protection of SchoolCalendars.org and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of School Calendars.org, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
We and our affiliated sellers will reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
Our site includes third-party advertising and links to other Web sites. On both SchoolCalendars.org -owned and operated sites and unaffiliated sites, SchoolCalendars.org displays interest-based advertising using information you make available to us when you interact with our sites, content, or services. Interest-based ads, also sometimes referred to as personalized or targeted ads, are displayed to you based on information from activities such as purchasing on our sites, visiting sites that contain SchoolCalendars.org content or ads, or interacting with SchoolCalendars.org tools/calendars. In providing interest-based ads, we follow the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising developed by the Digital Advertising Alliance (a coalition of marketing, online advertising, and consumer advocacy organizations).
We do not provide any personal information to advertisers or to third party sites that display our interest-based ads. However, advertisers and other third-parties (including the ad networks, ad-serving companies, and other service providers they may use) may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalized ad or content are part of the group that the ad or content is directed towards (for example, users in the Pacific Northwest who bought or browsed for classical music). Also, some third-parties may provide us information about you (such as the sites where you have been shown ads or demographic information) from offline and online sources that we may use to provide you more relevant and useful advertising.
The DoubleClick cookie is used by Google in the ads served on the websites of its partners, such as websites displaying AdSense ads or participating in Google certified ad networks. When users visit a SchoolCalendars.org page and either view or click on an ad, a DoubleClick cookie may be dropped on that end user's browser.
Google's use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and/or other sites on the Internet. Amazon.com uses a similar cookie.
You can also generally opt-out of receiving personalized ads from third party advertisers and ad networks who are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or who follow the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising by visiting the opt-out pages on the NAI website and DAA website.
We have implemented Google Analytics features based on Display Advertising (Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting) and Advertiser Features including Remarketing, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, DoubleClick Platform Integrations, and Demographics and Interest Reporting. We will use the data provided by Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to develop the site and content around our users’ interests.
SchoolCalendars.org and its affiliates such as Amazon.com and Walmart.com give you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with SchoolCalendars.org for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. These can be found on your Account Settings page.
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of such SchoolCalendars.org features as your Favorites List.
You can add or update certain information on pages such as those referenced in the "Which Information Can I Access?" section. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the prior version for our records.
SchoolCalendars.org does not sell products for purchase by children. We sell children's products for purchase by adults. If you are under 18, you may use SchoolCalendars.org only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
You provide most such information when you search, buy, post, participate in a contest or questionnaire, or communicate with customer service. For example, you provide information when you search for a product; place an order through SchoolCalendars.org or one of our third-party sellers; provide information in Your Account (and you might have more than one if you have used more than one e-mail address when shopping with us or a third party like Amazon.com or Walmart.com) communicate with us by phone, e-mail, or otherwise; complete a questionnaire or a contest entry form; or use any of our services which require you to login with an account. As a result of those actions, you might supply us or our third parties with such information as your name, address, and phone numbers; credit card information; people to whom purchases have been shipped, including addresses and phone number; people (with addresses and phone numbers); e-mail addresses of your friends and other people; content of reviews and e-mails to us; and financial information, including Social Security and driver's license numbers.
Most mobile devices provide users with the ability to disable location services. Most likely, these controls are located in the device's settings menu. If you have questions about how to disable your device's location services, we recommend you contact your mobile service carrier or your device manufacturer.
Examples of information we receive from other sources include updated delivery and address information from our carriers or other third parties, which we use to correct our records and deliver your next purchase or communication more easily; account information, purchase or redemption information, and page-view information from some merchants with which we operate co-branded businesses or for which we provide technical, fulfillment, advertising, or other services; search term and search result information from some searches conducted through the Web search features offered by third parties; search results and links, including paid listings (such as Sponsored Links); and credit history information from credit bureaus, which we and our third parties may use to help prevent and detect fraud and to offer certain credit or financial services to some customers.
Examples of information you can access easily at SchoolCalendars.org and/or our third parties such as Amazon.com or Walmart.com include up-to-date information regarding recent orders; personally identifiable information (including name, e-mail, password, communications and personalized advertising preferences, and address book); payment settings (including credit card information and promotional certificate and gift card balances); e-mail notification settings (including newsletters and other website features); Recommendations (including Recommended for You and Improve Your Recommendations); shopping lists and gift registries (including Wish Lists and Baby and Wedding Registries); Seller accounts; and your Account Information.
