Analytics Services Provided by Others
Practice takes reasonable measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We use industry-standard security technologies and procedures and appropriate technical, administrative and physical security measures and safeguards in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Access to our users’ personally identifiable information is restricted only to the Practice employees who need the information for a specific purpose, and all personally identifiable information that we collect about you is stored in limited-access servers located within the United States of America. We also require you to enter a password to access your account information. Please do not disclose your account password to unauthorized people.
Although Practice strives to provide appropriate security and privacy measures, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure or effective, and Practice does not guarantee or warrant the security and privacy of any data, information or content. Any content you post while using the Services is at your own risk.
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
Certain Organizations using Practice are schools that are subject to FERPA – a federal law that protects the privacy of a student’s education records. FERPA does not allow schools to disclose personally identifiable information from student education records as defined under FERPA (“Educational Records”) without a student’s (or his parent’s, if the student is under 18) written consent, unless the disclosure meets the requirements of an exception.
All use and maintenance of any Educational Records subject to FERPA (and not otherwise subject to an applicable exception) is under the direct control of the applicable Organization, and such Educational Records will only be used for authorized purposes and may not be re-disclosed to other parties unless we have specific authorization from the Organization to do so and it is otherwise permitted by FERPA.
Practice is based in the United States, and our Services are operated and managed on servers located within the United States. If you choose to use our Services from the European Union or other regions of the world with laws governing data collection and use that differ from U.S. law, then you acknowledge and agree that you are transferring your information outside of those regions to the United States and that, by providing your personal information to us, you consent to that transfer and agree that your only recourse regarding use or misuse of your information arises through application of U.S. laws and regulations.
