Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy – Civic Fundamentals (a project of izzit.org)

We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. That is why we have adopted this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy lets you know how your personal information is processed and explains our data collection and use practices. By accessing our website, you consent to the information collection and use practices described in this Privacy Policy.

We promise that we will use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with the Privacy Policy that follows:

WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO YOU COLLECT?
Wherever Civics Fundamentals (a project of izzit.org) collects personal information, we make an effort to include a link to this Privacy Policy. We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. The personal information we collect may include your name, title, company or organization name, email address, phone number, work or home address, information about your job function, information about your company, and credit card information.
We may request your email address or mailing address for the purposes of providing a service (for example, subscriptions to email newsletter lists, product mailings, or message board registration). Such information is used for internal purposes only, to communicate with users and provide the service(s) requested. We also may collect demographic information (such as job title and company information). We use aggregate demographic information about our customers to improve our services for marketing purposes and/or industry reporting purposes. Participation in any of our services is entirely voluntary, and you have a choice whether or not to disclose personal information. No individual or email information is given, rented, or sold to third parties for any purpose other than what is outlined below.

Email Newsletters
If users wish to subscribe to our email newsletters, we ask for information such as name and an email address. This allows us to keep in touch with you about other services we offer. Recipients of our newsletters can unsubscribe using the instructions listed at the end of the email newsletter.

Surveys and Contests
From time to time, we invite our customers to provide information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary. Therefore, the customer chooses whether to disclose requested contact information (such as name and mailing address) and demographic information (such as zip code or job title). Contact information collected in connection with surveys and contests is used to notify the winners and award prizes and monitor or improve customer satisfaction with our products or services.

Interactive Features
Our website may offer interactive features to allow customers to communicate with one another regarding our products and services. While the information collected by our company during the registration process is not shared or sold, please note that all personal information sent or posted via this feature becomes public information for which we are not responsible. Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, others can collect and use that information. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Tell-A-Friend
If customers elect to refer a friend to our company, we may ask them for the friend’s name, job title, and email address. izzit.org will store and use this information to provide email updates (email newsletter) about our company and related products and services. The friend can unsubscribe using the instructions listed at the end of the email newsletter.

Communications with Us
When customers contact us via snail mail or email with requests for service, support, or information, we may retain such communications for our internal administrative purposes and to help us better serve customers.

Communications from Us
In order to best serve our customers, we may send updates that contain important information about our products and services. For example, we verify passwords and usernames for our password-protected website areas. We may also communicate with a customer to provide requested services and account-related issues via email, phone, or regular mail. In addition to such service and product-essential messages, we offer our customers the option to receive information about our company, related products, services, and special deals. Users, however, can choose not to receive these communications from us by requesting to be unsubscribed.

Automatic Data Collection
We gather date, time, browser type, navigation history, and IP address of all visitors to our website for our internal purposes. This information does not contain anything that can identify users personally. We use this information for our internal security audit log, trend analysis, and system administration and to gather broad demographic information about our user base for aggregate use.

TO WHOM IS MY INFORMATION SHARED?
On occasion, we may ask a third party to administer an auditing survey on behalf of izzit.org. Personal information such as first and last names and corresponding email addresses may be forwarded to the auditing company to contact Civics Fundamentals customers. Such information is not stored, used, or sold by the auditing company other than administering the survey. If you are asked to participate in the survey, please note that participation is entirely voluntary, and you have a choice whether or not to disclose any information.

We may also disclose your personal information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:
a) Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law;
b) Protect and defend the rights or property of izzit.org and related properties, or visitors to our website and related properties;
c) Identify persons who may be violating the law.

SECURITY
We use reasonable precautions to protect our customers’ personal information and to store it securely. Sensitive information that is transmitted to us online is encrypted and is transmitted to us securely. In addition, access to all of our customers’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

LINKS
Our website contains links to other sites. Izzit.org is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each website to which we may link that may collect personally identifiable information.

CHILDREN
The CivicsFundamentals.org website is a resource for teachers with students in grades K-college and adult students studying for the Naturalization Test. We do not intentionally collect any personally identifiable information from students under the age of 13.

NOTIFICATION AND CHANGES
If we change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on this page, so our users are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under which circumstances if any, we disclose it. Users should check this policy frequently to keep abreast of any changes.
