Retaining personal information
This Section 5 sets out our data retention policies and procedure, which are designed to help ensure that we comply with our legal obligations in relation to the retention and deletion of personal information.
Personal information that we process for any purpose shall currently be retained.
Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Section 5, we will retain documents (including electronic documents) containing personal data:
to the extent that we are required to do so by law;
if we believe that the documents may be relevant to any ongoing or prospective legal proceedings; and
in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk).
Security of personal information
We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure (password- and firewall-protected) servers.
All electronic financial transactions entered into through our website will be protected by encryption technology.
You acknowledge that the transmission of information over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.
You are responsible for keeping the password you use for accessing our website confidential; we will not ask you for your password (except when you log in to our website).
We maintain a robust security program that has been thoughtfully crafted to safeguard the security, privacy, confidentiality, and integrity of personally identifiable information against potential risks, including unauthorized access or use, as well as unintended or inappropriate disclosure. We achieve this through the implementation of administrative, technological, and physical safeguards that are commensurate with the sensitivity of the information at hand. Nevertheless, it is important to note that we cannot provide an absolute assurance regarding the security of information transmitted over the Internet or stored within our databases. Furthermore, we cannot accept responsibility for security breaches that are beyond our reasonable control.
Upon the identification of a security breach resulting in the unauthorized release, disclosure, or acquisition of personal identifiable information, Literacy Geeks shall promptly notify, within a reasonable timeframe not exceeding thirty days from the moment of discovery, the local or regional board of education about said security breach. Within this thirty-day period, Literacy Geeks may (A) initiate an investigation to ascertain the nature and extent of the unauthorized release, disclosure, or acquisition, along with identifying the affected accounts whose personal identifiable information was involved in said unauthorized actions, or (B) take measures to restore the reasonable integrity of Literacy Geeks's data system.
We may update this policy from time to time by publishing a new version on our website.
You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are happy with any changes to this policy.
We may notify you of changes to this policy by email.
You may instruct us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you; provision of such information will be subject to:
the payment of a fee (currently fixed at $20.00); and
the supply of appropriate evidence of your identity (for this purpose, we will usually accept a photocopy of your driver’s license plus an original copy of a utility bill showing your current address).
We may withhold personal information that you request to the extent permitted by law.
You may instruct us at any time not to process your personal information for marketing purposes.
In practice, you will usually either expressly agree in advance to our use of your personal information for marketing purposes, or we will provide you with an opportunity to opt out of the use of your personal information for marketing purposes.
Parents or guardians have the option to request the deletion of personal information pertaining to their child. To initiate this process, please begin by reaching out to your child's teacher in order to discuss the removal of their personally identifiable information from the class roster. Should you require additional assistance or information, do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
