< Privacy Policy

Home School, Inc. (HSI) respects your right to online privacy.  We hold your information in strict confidence.  We respect your privacy and value your participation at our site, your use of our free services, and your business when you purchase goods and services from us.  We want to assure you that we never have and will never sell, rent or otherwise distribute any information about our users.

Asking for your information

HSI will sometimes ask for personal information such as name, address, e-mail address and telephone number.  We do this for two different reasons.  First, for those creating a school at our site, we need information about you so that in the event you forget your password and change your e-mail address, we can help you log back in to your school.  Second, for those of you who will purchase resources and services from us, we need information about you to process those orders.  Providing us this information will help us offer you products and services that we believe you would like to hear about.  When you choose to give personal information to us over the Internet that we ask for, we will inform you how we will use the information, but above all, always in ways that maintain your privacy.

Personal Information Privacy

Home School, Inc. will take all appropriate steps to keep your personal information confidential.  Those steps include limiting access to your school information to only those technical staff who need to access it to help you with any questions or difficulties you tell us about.

Home School, Inc. will not sell, rent or give away your personal information to other companies for them to use in selling other’s products or services.  We will not “make your name and address available” to anyone even if we think they are “reputable organizations.”

We gather personal information so we can better serve and help you and to improve our web services.  Occasionally, we ask for your comments on our products and services.  These comments help us determine which products and services you should be made aware of based on your interests and needs.

We will communicate with you via e-mail or other online delivery devices only if you agree to receive those communications.  Those who believe they are receiving our communications in error or no longer wish to receive them should simply contact us and we will remove those customer names from our mailing lists.

Order Information Privacy

We currently use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to safeguard your information, including your credit card number, during online transactions.  We believe SSL to be a very safe encryption method, but we are always looking for more secure encryption methods to safeguard information that is sent online.  Information exchanged with any site address beginning with https is encrypted using SSL before transmission.

Cookies

Home School, Inc. currently uses “cookies” on our site.  These allow our Web Server to recognize you each time you come to our site.  This information only allows us to recognize you and does not disclose any personal information about you.  By using these cookies we can learn about how our site is used by visitors and make improvements to better fit their needs.

Password security

When you login in to our site, you use your username and password.  Your password is selected by you and can be changed at anytime by you.  If you can’t remember your password, it can be reset by our system and  e-mailed to you at your request.  Our Customer Support staff cannot tell you your password; they have no way of obtaining it.  They can, however, trigger the process that will send a reset password to you.  The e-mail is sent as an internal process by the Web Server.
