We extend the following information to assure you, our guest, that we are concerned about and respect your privacy. Please know that we will never sell, lease or rent your confidential information nor share it with any unaffiliated organizations, other than in the limited circumstances described below. We will always endeavor to take steps to ensure that any information you provide to us will remain secure. We want you to feel safe in your online experience while visiting our Website. However, please be aware that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and there is always the risk that unauthorized persons may access or use your information. You use our Website and send us such information at your own risk.
HOW WE COLLECT AND USE YOUR INFORMATION
We collect personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information from you in a number of ways. “Personally identifiable information” is information that personally identifies you or your child, such as your or your child’s name, zip code and e-mail address (or other information that is associated by us with such information). “Non-personally identifiable information” is information that does not personally identify you, including anonymous information and aggregate data. We may keep such personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information for an unlimited period of time.

COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING MECHANISMS
You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although that will prevent you from accessing the most useful features on our Website as this requires you to be logged on and authenticated in the first instance.
Third parties working on our behalf and third parties with whom we work, including, but not limited to, our partners use the non-personally identifiable information that they may collect during your visits to this Website and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice and how to “opt out” of cookies placed by the Network Advertising Initiative’s (“NAI”) member networks for this purpose, you can visit www.networkadvertising.org.
DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
The laws of some jurisdictions require that operators of websites and online services disclose how they respond to Do Not Track signals, which some browsers have incorporated. When turned on, these features typically send a signal to a website or online service indicating that the user does not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret Do Not Track signals, we do not currently respond to them.
DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
As previously stated, America Achieves does not sell, lease or rent your confidential information. However, we may need to disclose personal information if we believe in good faith such disclosure is (a) required by the law, regulation, court order, subpoena, search warrant, law enforcement agency request, or other legal process; (b) to produce relevant documents or information in connection with litigation, arbitration, mediation, adjudication, government or internal investigations, or other legal or administrative proceedings; (c) to help enforce our Website rules, protect your and our safety or security, and/or to protect the safety, security and property of our Website; (d) to provide you and other users with the services or products requested by you and/or other users (including in connection with the transfer of any assets), and to perform other activities related to such services and products; (e) to provide you with information about our products and services and those of third parties that may be of interest to you; or (f) to operate our systems properly.
We may share your information with third parties who perform services on our behalf and to respond to your request or inquiry. We may also share your information with partners, affiliates, and/or third parties interested in serving you or informing you about their companies or organizations. You may instruct us at any time not to share your information with such partners, affiliates, and/or third parties by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
