Effective Date

This policy is in effect as of January 1, 2011, and will remain in effect until it is revised.

If you visit our website

In general, you can visit our website without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. Our web servers collect the domain names, not the email addresses, of visitors.

We utilize a third party to track and analyze usage and volume statistical information from our website customers in order to improve the quality of our website. No data collected by a third party on our behalf may be owned or used by any third party. We reserve the right to publish non-personally identifiable, summary information regarding our website customers for promotional purposes and as a representative audience for advertisers.

If you choose to identify yourself

If you voluntarily provide us with personally identifying information such as your name, street address, email address, or phone number, we will collect that information along with any other information you voluntarily provide for the purpose of your submission.

When you participate in our website features, such as newsletters, sweepstakes, and so on, we may use the personally identifiable information you provide through those features in the following ways, unless stated otherwise:

  • We may store and process that information to improve our understanding of your needs and how we can improve our products and services, and
  • We may communicate with you via email, postal mail, or by phone as you may request or as we deem necessary.

Removal from Future Communication

If at any time you do not wish to have your personal information collected, you may opt out of such services or subscriptions using info@theseedsoftomorrow.org. Upon your request, we will remove you from future communications.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”)

HIPAA requires us to provide you with a summary of our privacy practices and related duties and your rights in connection with the use and disclosure of your protected health information. For purposes of this Notice, your protected health information shall mean information that identifies and relates to: (1) your past, present, or future physical or mental health or condition, including but not limited to, your name, address, Social Security Number, and other demographic information; and/or (2) payment for your past, present, or future health care or instruction. Protected health information includes information of persons living or deceased.

Typically we keep your protected health information in your student file and our billing records.

Instruction

SoT will use your protected health information to provide appropriate instructional services or to collaborate with other professionals on your educational team, including doctors, teachers, school district officials, and therapists.

SoT may use your protected health information to contact you with reminders about your appointments or other SoT services that may be of interest to you.

Payment

SoT may use and disclose your protected health information if a third party (such as a school, agency, scholarship foundation, or loan company) is contracted with us to pay for your services. For example, verification of attendance dates, attendance records, or copies of progress notes are required for some contracts.

If you are involved in a lawsuit or dispute, SoT may disclose your protected health information in response to a court or administrative order. SoT may also disclose your protected health information in response to a subpoena, discovery request, or other lawful process by someone else involved in the dispute, but only if reasonable efforts have been made to tell you about the request.

Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act

We have no intention of collecting any personally identifiable information (such as name, address, telephone number, birth date, or email address) from individuals under 13 years of age. If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, a parent or guardian of that child should contact us at the address listed at the bottom of this statement if he or she would like this information deleted from our records. We will use all reasonable efforts to delete the child’s information from our files as promptly as possible.

We are not responsible for the content of external websites. The inclusion of a link to a third party website from our website should not be understood as an endorsement or authorization of any content, concepts, offers, advertising, or any other content or information.
