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, such as your name, telephone number, postal address and e-mail address (or other information that is associated by us with such above information). "Non-personally identifiable information" is information that does not personally identify you, including anonymous information and aggregate data.
We use this information to understand better how our visitors use our website, research our visitors' demographics, interests, and behaviour, provide visitors with customized services and information, improve our promotional and outreach efforts, and for other similar purposes.

Personal Information and Choice
You may choose whether to provide personal information on-line.
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.
We do not use "persistent cookies," and only use "session cookies" to help us "remember" you until the session times out, or the closing of your browser. Session cookies are automatically deleted from your hard drive after the end of a session. We will not allow third parties to place any cookies, web beacons or other similar devices on our website. We do not control such devices that may be placed on our website by third parties.
As previously stated, America Achieves does not sell, lease or rent your confidential information. However, we may need to disclose personal information as required by the law, regulation, court order, subpoena, search warrant, in the course of a legal proceeding or in response to a law enforcement agency request. We may also in good faith do so to help enforce our site rules, protect your safety or security and/or to protect the safety and security of our site.
America Achieves, its agencies, officers, or employees exercise no control over the organizations, views, accuracy, copyright or trademark compliance or the legality of the material contained on those servers and do not sponsor, endorse, or approve the information, content, products, materials, opinions or services contained on such external sites. The visitor proceeds to these external sites at their own risk. America Achieves specifically disclaims any and all liability from damages which may result from the accessing of a third party site which is linked to the America Achieves web site, or from reliance upon any such information.
IN NO EVENT SHALL AMERICA ACHIEVES BE LIABLE TO ANY USER OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR LOST PROFITS) RESULTING FROM THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE WEB SITE OR THE MATERIAL, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT THE COMPANY IS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
AMERICA ACHIEVES WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, LOSSES OR CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION.
The web site may contain interactive lesson plans with blog and ratings abilities and other interactive features (collectively, "Interactive Services") that allow you to post, submit, publish, display or transmit to other users (hereinafter, "post") content or materials (collectively, "User Contributions") on or through the web site.
Any User Contribution you post to the site will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary, and we have the right to use, copy, distribute and disclose to third parties any such material for any purpose.
You represent and warrant that you own or control all rights in and to the User Contributions and have the right to grant America Achieves and its affiliates the license granted above.
You understand and acknowledge that you are responsible for any User Contributions you submit or contribute, and you, not America Achieves, have fully responsibility for such content, including its legality, reliability, accuracy and appropriateness.
Any content and/or opinions uploaded, expressed or submitted to the web site, and all articles and responses to questions and other content, other than the content provided by America Achieves, are solely the opinions and the responsibility of the person or entity submitting them and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of America Achieves. We are not responsible, or liable to any third party, for the content or accuracy of any materials posted by you or any other user of the web site.
These content standards apply to any and all User Contributions and Interactive Services. User Contributions must in their entirety comply with all applicable federal, state, local and international laws and regulations. Without limiting the foregoing, User Contributions must not:
If you believe that any User Contribution violates your copyright, send us a notice of copyright infringement at email@example.com
It is the policy of the Company to terminate the user accounts of repeating infringers.
This is intended to take advantage of the safe harbor offered under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which, among other things, shields site owners from liability for copyright infringement resulting from user-generated content. You don't have to have a separate policy, but it would be shorter to link it here then to put in the body of the terms – what you need to do to qualify for the safe harbor is (1) designate an agent to receive notices of copyright infringement, notify the US Copyright Office and pay the specified fee; (2) identify the agent on the site and provide contact information; and (3) adopt a policy to terminate subscriber accounts of repeat infringers.

If we become aware that a child under 13 has somehow provided us with personally identifiable information without verifiable parental consent, we will use our best efforts to remove such information from our files. If you believe that your child has provided us with such information without your consent, please e-mail us firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at Privacy Matters, America Achieves, 95 Morton St, New York, NY 10014.
