for PLATO® Web Products
In some instances when using these products, users may be asked to enter a first and last name and grade level. PLATO Learning will not collect any information without the user's express consent.
We do track certain information, such as courseware and site usage. These data are used to analyze trends and for internal statistical purposes only. No personal information is stored or used in any way as a result of this tracking, nor is this information disseminated to any third parties.
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure storage of your information on private network servers not available by direct web addresses. All user information and coursework data are encoded and transmitted through session keys to insure that no one other than PLATO Learning can read the transmitted information.
Also, PLATO Learning periodically holds security audits to make sure we are doing everything possible to secure this data. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, PLATO Learning can't ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
Use of your Personally Identifiable Information
We do not allow children under 13 to provide any direct personally identifiable information (for example, name address, or school information); all such information will be collected solely from teachers and/or administrators. Such personal information provided by teachers and/or parents will be available only to the teacher and administrator, the student, and the student's parent or guardian.
Exceptions to this practice would only occur if PLATO Learning is sold to a third party or it is declared bankrupt or insolvent. In those instances, use of the user's personally identifiable information will be determined by either a court, other governing body, or the acquiring entity.
Deletion Procedure and Access to Data Collected
If a user wishes to be deleted from the system or have data previously entered into the system deleted or edited, this can only be done by submitting such a request to your school or institution's teacher or administrator.
About Children Under 13
PLATO Learning encourages parental involvement, and encourages
parental consent before students under the age of 13 use these
web products. Parents should provide verifiable consent by
filling out the parental
consent form and returning it to their child's teacher,
school or institution, who will then verify that written parental
consent has been given.
