Community Learning Space for Learning Academy is a computer system designed to provide access to
information about organizations in a geographical community.
The operators of the Learning Academy recognize that privacy has become
increasingly significant to individuals visiting (visitors to) the Learning Academy sites.
Learning Academy intends to continually update our understanding of an individual's privacy
needs and to modify Learning Academy's commitment to privacy and information management
as appropriate. Learning Academy's goal is to assure visitors to the Learning Academy site a level of
privacy that meets their reasonable expectations. Since we provide access
to many other businesses and organizations through Learning Academy's directories we
expect that these businesses and organizations will have their own privacy
policy and commitment to fair information practices.
Considering the ever-changing technological landscape Learning Academy has not attempted
to set forth an exhaustive list of guidelines. Rather Learning Academy has worked with a
number of individuals and groups who are knowledgeable in privacy and
access matters to structure a framework. The operators of Learning Academy can use this
framework to develop privacy guidelines, policies or principles that are
consistent with Learning Academy's programs. Learning Academy will incorporate the following
considerations in the way it conducts business and encourages businesses
linked through the Learning Academy directories to utilize the following general
concepts in formulating their privacy and information management policies:
Recognize the interest and concerns of visitors and the businesses
linked to the directory in developing information management principles.
Learning Academy will remain sensitive to the privacy expectations of its visitors.
Institute and develop procedures to safeguard the security of
visitors' personal information, governing access to, use of and disclosure
of personal information.
Learning Academy will ensure that visitor information is securely stored and that such
data is available only to Learning Academy staff who have a legitimate need and
authorization to access the data. Further, staff who have access to
visitor data will be informed of Learning Academy's policies as they relate to the use
of the data. At the same time, similar approaches to privacy will be
expected of external parties who have access to visitor data.
Execute accurate record-keeping procedures.
Learning Academy will ensure that personal information used to determine visitor
demographics and targeted surveys will be pertinent to these purposes, and
accurately recorded and current.
Only disclose personal information about visitors to unrelated third
parties after the visitor has been informed in advance of the possibility
of such disclosure and given the opportunity to decline (i.e. "opt out").
Please note that Learning Academy will not knowingly support illegal activities.
Remain flexible in responding to changing visitor needs and
expectations regarding privacy as information networks such as Learning Academy evolve.
Learning Academy will ensure that its information management practices will keep pace
with technological advances and visitor needs.
