The Information We Collect and How It Is Used
We collect information about you when you use School Dismissal Manager, including, in the case of the parents using the service: first and last name, children’s first and last name, email address, name of school, dismissal time, name of person picking-up, means of going home and any other information provided by your school to SDM. For instance, your school will provide us with your child’s grade level and teacher or division.
We may also collect general non-identifying information about you, including but not limited to demographic and geographic information of our users and schools. Although we do not share any personally identifiable information (name, address, email address) with third parties, we may share this general non-identifying information with third parties. An example might be that we would indicate to our sponsors/advertisers that we have "X number of elementary schools in the State of Connecticut, representing X number of households, using School Dismissal Manager."
School Dismissal Manager may also place advertisements on any screen within the web site or any related media. We collect information on who clicks on these advertisements, the school they are affiliated with and the time/date the advertisement was clicked. Although we collect this information, we do not provide any personally identifiable information to third parties, including advertisers. We may, however, tell an advertiser that their advertisement was clicked on X number of times, during a certain time period, in a certain geographic region.
We use the information you provide us to provide the School Dismissal Manager services. Specifically, we will communicate the information you provide to us regarding your child’s dismissal information to their school.
From time to time, we may use your information to contact you via e-mail to determine whether you are happy with our services and/or send you customer satisfaction surveys.
By accepting use of School Dismissal Manager’s services, you expressly understand and agree that School Dismissal Manager may provide information about your child(ren) to both parents of the child(ren) (and/or legal guardians of the child(ren) as the case may be), regardless of the relationship or custody arrangements between the parents and School Dismissal Manager/Horizon Marketing Group, Inc. expressly disclaims disclosure of information to such sources.
Editing, Updating, Correcting and Deleting Your Information
To edit, update or correct your information, simply login to SDM, go to “Preferences”, and update your information. If you need additional support, please contact your school or email email@example.com. Please note that any requests to remove or update your personal information through our email support may take up to ten days.
We take special care to protect the safety and privacy of children. We do not knowingly permit anyone under the age of 13 to use School Dismissal Manager. We also do not send email correspondence to anyone who tells us that they are under the age of 13 without their parent's consent. We urge parents and guardians to participate in their children's online activities and use parental control or other web filtering technology to supervise children's access to the web.
We take reasonable precautions, including use of sophisticated encryption and authentication tools, to protect the security of your personal information that you share with us. Our servers that hold your information are located behind a firewall in a secure hosting facility that is protected round the clock by on-site security. All servers are in a secure area with limited access. In addition to physical limitations all servers require a complex username and password to gain access to any function. All servers utilize the Windows 2008 platform and use Microsoft's Internet Information Server (IIS) software. Microsoft servers offer the most robust security model of any server operating system on the market today. All administrative passwords are mixed characters and symbols, and are changed regularly to ensure the highest level of protection. Windows 2008 provides a secure file system (NTFS) that allows administrators to restrict access to server directories. Our application utilizes Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption for all transfers of data between our servers and your compter or mobile device. Unfortunately, despite these security measures, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our website, and you do so at your own risk. Therefore, we cannot be and are not responsible for unauthorized access to your information that is the result of hackers or others who have obtained access through illegal measures, hardware or software failures, acts of God or any other factors that compromise the security of the data we collect. We urge you to keep your password in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also remember to log off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit to ensure that others cannot access your account.
