1. Types of Information Collected and Uses.
a. Traffic Data Collected. We automatically track and collect the following information when you visit our Site:
(i) IP address (which indicates the location of your computer on the Internet);
(ii) Domain server;
(iii) Type of computer; and
(iv) Type of web browser (collectively “Traffic Data”). Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you but is helpful for us to know because it helps us learn or verify what search engines and other links led you to our Site and allows us to ensure effective technical operations. This can help us to improve your experience on the Site.
c. Personal Identification Information Collected. When you use the Site’s “Contact Us”, “Let Us Answer Your Questions” and/or “Send Us a Message” feature, request our e-mail or printed newsletter or other publications, or videos offered through our Site, or complete a survey or poll on the Site, you will give us “Contact Information” such as your name, phone number, e-mail and possibly your mailing address. These features may also require or permit you to submit “Demographic Information,” which may include, among other things, street address, city, state, zip code, age, and/or information related to academic, physical and/or emotional development, as well as related information regarding past and/or current solutions, treatments or interventions. The “Contact Us”, “Let Us Answer Your Questions” and/or “Send Us a Message” and Survey features also permit you to submit additional information designed to give us a better understanding of features that visitors would like to see on the Site or to request information from us. This feedback can help us improve the overall experience of visiting our Site and using the products, services and programs that we offer. If you communicate with us by e-mail, post any messages or information in any chat groups or bulletin boards that may exist on the Site from time to time, any information from that communication may be collected as Contact Information, Demographic Information and feedback.
d. Registration Information Collected. When you submit online a Registration Form to request entry of your child to a TES program, you will give us Contact Information, Demographic Information, and “Registration Information.” The Registration Form may require you to submit information that you may consider sensitive or highly personal, such as social security number; height, weight, and other physically identifiable information; parent contact information and marital status; parent / child relationship information; academic information; emotional and behavioral concerns; history of substance abuse; treatment history; and medical history and medications. If your child is placed in a TES Program, the information from both the Registration Form will be placed in the child’s permanent file. TES does not currently maintain electronic files of a child’s entire permanent file, but may do so in the future. A child’s permanent file is made available to TES personnel, contractors and clinicians involved in any program for which admission is sought, in the evaluation of an application for entry, or in the care for the child once enrolled, and otherwise in accordance with TES’ policies and procedures in effect from time to time. This and any other information remains confidential as dictated by HIPAA regulations.
e. E-mail Communications. To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we may receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from us if your computer supports such capabilities. We may also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
f. Information from Other Sources. For reasons such as improving personalization of our service (for example, providing subject specific content or special offers that we think will interest you), we might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. We also sometimes receive updated delivery and address information from other sources (such as change of address information) so that we can correct our records and deliver your next communication more easily.
2. Other Uses of Personal Identification Information Collected. We will store and update the Contact Information, Demographic Information, Registration Information and other information collected from visitors to the Site. We may use your Contact Information to send you information about TES, its programs, services and products, partners, affiliates or new or updated features on the Site or TES programs, to contact you when necessary, or to request you to participate in an online survey or poll. We may use the Traffic Data, Demographic Information and automatically collected data from cookies and tracking codes to track and analyze demographics of visitors to our Site, links to our Site and how visitors use various features of the Site. We may also use Demographic Information and automatically collected data to customize and tailor your experience on the Site, to display content and features that we think may be of interest to you, and in combination with your Contact Information, to send you information about products, services and programs that may be of interest to you, and to contact you to request you to complete online surveys or polls
