Privacy Policy

Last updated: November 29, 2016

iForward Virtual Charter School of the Grantsburg School District respects its users' privacy and has established this privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") to inform all users as to how we collect, use, share and protect information that we may gather when users visit our Website (the "Website"). This Privacy Policy applies to the Website, where this Privacy Policy is posted; this Privacy Policy does not apply to information we may collect from you in other ways, such as by phone, fax or email.

iForward reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Any changes to our Privacy Policy will become effective upon posting of the revised Privacy Policy. By accessing or using the Website, you agree to the terms of the Privacy Policy effective upon your access or use of the Website. Please do not access or use this Website if you disagree with the Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect

Upon your use of iForward's website, information will be gathered in two forms. The first is non-personally identifiable information gathered from the navigation of the website, and the second is voluntarily provided personal information supplied by website users.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Upon use of the iForward Website, automated tracking of non-personally identifiable information will occur, including a user's IP address, domain name, the name of the page from which the user entered the Website, the pages viewed, and for how long they are viewed. These analytics are used to manage the website and make improvements based on usage of users. iForward may also use "cookies" to track usage and to improve users' experiences. Cookies do not collect any personally identifiable information, and users can decline cookies. Further information about cookies is available using the help function of your Internet browser.

Use of Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Non-personally identifiable information does not identify users of iForward's Website, and iForward reserves the right to use it for any purpose and to share it with third parties for any purpose. Please note if non-personally identifiable information is combined with voluntarily provided information, it will not be distributed without written permission from the user.

However, iForward reserves the right to use IP addresses to identify its users when iForward, in its discretion, deems it necessary to enforce the terms of this Website, to fulfill a government request, comply with applicable law, protect or defend iForward's legal rights and property, this website or other users, or in an emergency to protect the health and safety of the users of this Website or the general public.

Voluntary Personal Information

iForward has opportunities for users to voluntarily provide information that can be used to identify a specific user, such as (but not limited to) first and last name, email address and date of birth, on pages such as on the page to request more information. This information is not mandated and is provided at the discretion of each user.

Use of Personal Information

iForward uses personal information voluntarily supplied through the Website to satisfy requests for information, deliver program services and in other ways naturally associated with the circumstances in which the information was provided. If a user requests additional information, iForward will use this information to fulfill this request. Enrollment information that is collected in this manner may be provided to school districts or other third parties as required by state law, federal law and/or school operating procedures.

Personal information provided voluntarily will be used to communicate with users who provide personal information. If you do not want to receive information from iForward, please email us at info@iforwardwisconsin.com and ask to be removed from iForward's contact list.

iForward is required to fully comply with lawful requests from law enforcement agencies or other governmental organizations; to protect the rights, privacy, safety, or property of iForward, our employees, or other users of the Website; and/or to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain. All of these activities may require the use of personal information only within legal rights.

Updating and Correcting Information

You have the ability to access and edit any personal information you provide us through this website. You may change any of your personal information by sending us an email describing the changes you want to make at info@iforwardwisconsin.com.

Message Boards and Chats

We may offer message boards and chat rooms on our sites. Please be aware that anyone may read your postings on a message board or in a chat room. Furthermore, any information which you submit to be posted to a message board or in a chat room, including your information from your account information page and Member ID, will be disclosed and available to all users of that message board or chat room, and is therefore no longer private. We cannot guarantee the security of such information that you disclose or communicate online in public areas such as message boards and chat rooms, and you do so at your own risk. We reserve the right to monitor the content of the message boards only and to republish your postings from message boards or chat rooms elsewhere on the Web or otherwise in any format.

Children Under 13

iForward's Website is not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under the age of 13, and we do not and will not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children under 13. A parent/guardian is required to provide consent in order for any child under the age of 13 to provide personal information through the Website and for iForward to use that information.

If fraudulent activity were to occur, all unauthorized information will be communicated accordingly. As soon as we verify the information, we will immediately obtain guardian consent and delete the information from iForward systems. If you want to notify us that we have received information for children under 13, please do so by emailing us at info@iforwardwisconsin.com.

Security

iForward works to protect all voluntarily provided information from website users. Although safeguards are in place, no security system is completely impenetrable, so iForward cannot guarantee the unconditional security of our systems, nor can we guarantee that voluntarily provided information from users will not be intercepted while being transmitted to iForward over the Internet.

Links

The Website may contain links to other websites or other resources that are provided for the users of the website. These resources are not under the authority or control of iForward and are covered under each individual privacy policy.
