Use of Personal Information
Homeschool Connections is committed to protecting your privacy. Homeschool Connections will not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it by sending us an e-mail, participating in a survey, or completing an online form. When a user submits personally-identifiable information, it is used only for the purpose stated at the time of collection.
Where consent for the use and disclosure of personal information is required, the school will seek consent from the appropriate person. In the case of a student’s personal information, the school will seek the consent from the parent(s)/guardian(s) depending on the circumstances of the proposed use and disclosure.
Homeschool Connections’ website, similar to other standard websites, tracks Web browsing patterns to understand how the website is being used. This “generic” information is collected using “cookies,” which are text files placed on your computer to “remember” your preferences such as calendar settings and site bookmarks on the website from visit to visit, or to maintain your “logged in” status when visiting password-protected areas. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally-identifiable information while on our site. Web browsers have settings allowing you to reject cookies, selectively accept cookies, or delete cookies previously accepted. Please be aware that rejecting or deleting cookies from our website may make certain functions unavailable to you.
Like most website servers, this website uses statistical packages such as Google Analytics to analyze trends in how the website is accessed and utilized. Information monitored includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, geographic location of visitors (country, city), browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, time spent on pages, and keywords used to find our site via search engines. This information is anonymous and cannot be directly linked to individual users. We may use it to identify high-use or low-use areas of the site, pinpoint problem areas of the site, analyze broad demographic trends in our visitors, and make decisions about how to make it easier for people to find and navigate our website.
This website uses Google Analytics to help understand how visitors engage with the site. Your Web browser automatically sends certain information to Google.
