Privacy Policy (“Policy”)

This Agreement was last modified on October 7, 2014.

 

This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for phmschools.org (the Site). This privacy policy applies solely to the websites under the phmschools.org domain and the information collected and used by such sites. This document addresses: (1) what personally identifiable information is collected from you through the website, how it is used, and with whom it may be shared; (2) the security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.

 

 

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. Excluding current and former staff, students, and the families/guardians of the students, we only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

 

For current and former staff we will only use your information to render services necessary for your current or previous employment. For current and former students and their families/guardians, we will only use your information to render necessary education related services. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than those necessary to provide the aforementioned services.

 

 

Security

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

 

Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.

 

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific duty (for example, accessing or updating student records) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment and only accessible to qualified technology personnel.

 

 

Cookies

We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in with a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site.

 

 

Partners

We partner with other parties to provide specific education and employment related services (such Google Gmail, HAC, TAC, etc). When the user logs in to our site to access these services, we may share usernames, legal names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
