The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) respects the privacy of Site users, and does not sell, rent, or otherwise provide personal information to third parties. Unless specifically stated otherwise, any information provided by you or otherwise collected is used only by usalearns.org as described below. However, there may be links on the Site that go to websites owned and/or operated by third parties who may have different privacy policies. You, and not The Sacramento County Office of Education, are responsible for knowing and understanding the privacy policies of third party websites before providing them with personal information.
Be aware that any personal information you might disclose, including performance records of Learners or Students, in the process of using the courses, units, lessons, and activities provided on the Site should be considered public information even though some of this information is accessible only with proper sign-in identification. The Sacramento County Office of Education encourages you to be cautious about incorporating personal information in lessons and activities available on the Site.
The Sacramento County Office of Education collects two kinds of information from Site users: individual information and aggregated information.
Individual information includes personal information such as your name, sign-in name and email address. We use this information to establish an individual account, which enables teachers to create, organize, and maintain their classes and records. This information also allows us to contact you to alert you to Site features and services or to respond to your inquiries.
Aggregated information includes any information that cannot be related to an individual. In order to better understand the needs and preferences of Site visitors and evaluate the usefulness and popularity of Site features and services, we may from time to time collect information such as the number of times certain pages or features are accessed, the type of browsers used to access the Site, or the website users visited previously or visited next.
Information is gathered in several ways. Before teachers can create and maintain a class, they must complete a registration form. This form requires a sign-in name, password, first and last name, and email information in order to teach English online. This information makes it possible for teachers to create and organize their classes and records and for us to respond to inquiries or announce new Site tools or features.
Whenever you access the Web on the Internet, an IP address is automatically assigned to your computer. This address allows Web servers to identify your computer. The IP address does not provide any personal information about the computer user. The IP address is used for system administration, to gather aggregated information on the Site use, and to help you and your Records remain properly connected during and between visits.
If you contact the Site through its help or support feature, we may keep that correspondence on file so that we can better respond to comments, questions, or concerns. In order to respond to you directly, an email address or other contact information is needed.
Under normal circumstances, the Sacramento County Office of Education does not disclose information to third parties. Exceptional circumstances could include:
Even in these circumstances, account information is only released if USA Learns believes it to be reasonably necessary.
Access to Site content and personal information is protected by firewalls, sign-in names, and passwords. However, because the Site does not employ the security measures such as Secure Socket Layers and encryption needed for financial or confidential transactions, we strongly recommend that users not send, copy, or link to the Site any confidential personal or financial information such as bank account, credit card, or social security numbers. While we exercise reasonable care to preserve your privacy and the security of your personal information, no transmission of information over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure.
Therefore, we cannot warrant the security of any information transmitted to the Site. Any and all information that is transmitted to USA Learns through the Internet will be at your (the user’s) own risk. We encourage you to exercise discretion in deciding what type of information you include in Registration, Records, and all Writing or Typing Activities that you include on the Site.
