Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
PII is information that identifies you or can be used to identify, contact, or locate you. For the purpose of the Policy, PII is defined as your name, home or business address, email address, telephone number, and debit or credit card information such as the credit card number or billing address, social media links, personal websites, and grades/evaluations. Company respects your privacy. Company only collects PII through voluntary submissions, such as email, survey information, and online registration forms. The types and amount of PII collected from these activities will vary, but in no event will we collect PII that is not voluntarily given by you when using the PLE Service. You consent to Company using your PII to facilitate requests, to contact you if a problem arises, email you information about our PLE Service, or for other uses consistent with this Policy and your requests.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information (Non-PII)
Company collects statistical use data about your use of the PLE. This data does not identify you personally and is purely statistical data, such as monitoring website user traffic, and access patterns. This Non-PII is for your benefit, in order to improve the PLE Service. Such analysis and information is aggregated across viewers, does not identify anyone as an individual and does not link to any PII.
Sharing with Third Parties
The PLE Service gives you the ability to share your PII and other User Submissions with other PLE Users. Please consider carefully before disclosing any personal information or data that might be accessible to others.
Company may share Non-PII with third parties. Be assured that any Non-PII shared does not identify you personally.
Grades, Test Assessments and Evaluations
We know your grades, test assessments or evaluations are very important and private to you and we do not share that type of information with any third parties. All grades, test assessments and evaluations are treated as confidential, and such information is available only to the instructors assisting with the grading process and course administration and/or the university or college that is involved.
Third Party Links
Use of IP Addresses
As with any Internet-based service, queries to our PLE Service transmit an Internet Protocol (IP) address, as this is what allows delivery of the information you requested back to you. We also use IP addresses for security purposes and to determine the approximate geographic location (the country or metropolitan region) of the query. We do not use IP addresses to identify an individual user by name, address or exact location.

User Communications and Opt-Out
When you send email or other communications to Company, Company may retain those communications and related e-mail addresses in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our PLE Service. In addition, Company may use your username and email address to provide you with PLE news about products and/or PLE Service and information about your user account. If you do not wish to receive these kinds of communications, you may "opt out" by emailing email@example.com.
Company maintains a variety of physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to guard your information and to deliver the PLE Service and features of the PLE Service. While Company cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of your data will not occur, Company takes reasonable efforts to prevent such occurrences.
Access to and Deletion of your Personal Information
In the event you desire to be informed of or access any PII we hold about you, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You also have the right to delete your PII at any time. Please note, however, that once you delete such information, it may not be recoverable. Once you share any PII with another PLE User, you do not have a chance to recover such information, so carefully consider what information you share.
In the event you terminate your account, we may retain basic contact information in the event we need to contact you about your use of the PLE Service. This information is kept strictly confidential. All other PII and Non-PII data may, at Company’s sole discretion, be immediately deleted upon termination of your account.
