Privacy Policy

ACCES/Finger Lakes RAEN Web Site Privacy Policy

The ACCES/Finger Lakes Regional Adult Education Network (herein known as “ACCES/FLRAEN”) is committed to honoring the privacy of the users of the www.FLRAEN.org Web site. This Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding collection, use, and disclosure of information that you may provide via this site. Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information to this site.

Passive Information Collection

As you navigate through a Web site, certain anonymous information (i.e., that does not personally identify you) can be collected without you actively providing the information. For example, your Internet browser automatically transmits to the ACCES/FLRAEN site some of this anonymous information, such as the URL of the Web site you just came from and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using. Our site may also collect anonymous information from your computer through cookies. Our cookies tell us such things as what pages are viewed by our visitors, the files they download, and record any preferences they indicate on our website. You may set your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent or to refuse cookies altogether, but certain features of this site might not work without cookies.

We may use your anonymous information to customize the site based on your preferences. Such information is not combined with personally identifiable information collected elsewhere on the site unless you have consented. We also may combine anonymous information to compile and analyze statistics and trends so we can provide better service to all of our visitors.

Security Precautions

This site takes reasonable steps to protect personally identifiable information as you transmit it to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever completely secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Moreover, where you use passwords, or other special access features on this site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.

Use and Disclosure of Information

Except as otherwise stated, we may use information collected via this site to improve the content of our site, to customize the site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for our marketing and research purposes, and for any other purpose specified. In addition, we may make full use of all information acquired through this site that is not in personally identifiable form.

We may disclose personally identifiable information you provide via this site to third parties, but only:

  1. To contractors we use to support our business (for example, technical support, delivery services for merchandise you may order, and financial institutions if you are making a transaction via the website) in which case we will require such third parties to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy and use it for the same purposes;
  2. To respond to law enforcement requests or where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations.

E-mail communications – or information you provide

Like many Web sites, this site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, phone number and e-mail address), in order for you to benefit from the specified features. You will be informed what information is required and what information is optional.

Links to Other Sites

Our site provides links to other Web sites where you can find out more about our partners or products. Please note that the ACCES/FLRAEN is not responsible for the information practices of linked sites. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of each site you visit.

Privacy Policy Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes here. We encourage you to review our policy from time to time.

Questions or Concerns

Your complete satisfaction in dealing with ACCES/FLRAEN is important to us. If you have any questions or concerns about the privacy practices described above, please contact us.

Thank you.
