When We Disclose Your Information
After School Matters takes your privacy very seriously. After School Matters does not sell or rent your contact information to marketers.
After School Matters may make certain personal information about you available to companies that After School Matters has a relationship with or that perform work for After School Matters to provide products and services to you on our behalf.
These companies may help us process information, fulfill customer orders, deliver products to you, manage and enhance customer data, or provide customer service. These companies are also obligated to protect your personal information in accordance with After School Matters policies, except if we inform you otherwise at the time of collection.
How We Protect Your Personal Information
After School Matters takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
The Site uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where sensitive personal information is required. To make purchases from the Site, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer. Doing so helps protect the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it’s transmitted over the Internet.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.
Cookies and Other Technologies
As is true of most websites, we may gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not contain any personal information and does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Site, and to track users’ movements around the Site. This aggregated information may be reported to our advertisers. After School Matters will not use the information collected to market directly to you.
