1. Your IP address. An Internet Protocol address (an “IP Address”) is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web. Web servers are then able to automatically identify your computer by its IP Address. SHEL may collect your IP Address to help diagnose problems with its server, administer the Site and identify its users. SHEL may also use your IP Address in conjunction with the Tracking Technologies described below for, among other things, purposes such as remembering user preferences or minimizing the need for you to re-enter information.

2. Tracking Technologies. SHEL may collect information from you that is not in the same category as the Personal Information discussed below. For example, SHEL might track information about the date and time visitors access the Site, the type of web browser they used, and the Web site from which visitors connected to the Site. As with many Web sites, SHEL may use "cookies" and/or other technology (e.g., web bugs, e-mail bugs, clear GIFs, web beacons and tracker GIFs) in the Site or in our communications with you to enhance the functionality of the Site and to make your transactions and other activities more convenient and efficient (collectively, “Tracking Technologies”). These Tracking Technologies may vary, but in some cases may involve a small file stored locally on your computer hardware, and may be used by SHEL to store and collect information relating to your viewing and use of the Site and SHEL’s correspondences with you. SHEL wants to be sure that you understand that accepting Tracking Technologies ONTO YOUR COMPUTER in no way gives us access to your computer or any personal information about you. You may set your web browser software TO REJECT Tracking Technologies, but, if so, certain functionality of the Site may be effected. Third parties (including, but not limited to, software vendors, advertisers and fulfillment companies) may also use Tracking Technologies by or through the Site. SHEL has no control over what information such third parties track or collect, and has no responsibility or liability for any tracking, data collection or other activities of such third parties.

3. Personal Information and Student Information. As used in this Privacy Policy “Personal Information” includes your name, address, phone number, e-mail address or any other information which might reasonably be used to identify you individually but does not generally include information gathered through Tracking Technologies (collectively “Personal Information”). As used in this Privacy Policy, “Student Information” includes the names, addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, attendance records, payment histories or any other information which might reasonably be used to individually identify a student of a School.

4. Disclosure and Use of Student Information. SHEL is committed to maintaining the confidence and trust of parents and students and the confidentiality of all Student Information. As such, all Student Information will remain confidential pursuant to applicable law and will be treated separately from information obtained from the Site pursuant to this Privacy Policy. While SHEL may use the Site to transmit Student Information to or obtain Student Information from its Authorized Franchisees, SHEL does not operate the Site with the intention of collecting Student Information.

5. Use of Materials Gathered from or Submitted to the Site. Subject to this Privacy Policy, any communication or material you transmit to the Site or to SHEL including Personal Information (other than Student Information and any Personal Information you may submit as part of an employment application, whether by electronic mail or otherwise, for any reason, will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary. SHEL may use any such materials (together with any ideas, concepts, know-how, or techniques contained therein) in any manner, for any purpose, without credit or compensation. SHEL may, for instance, share, rent, sell or otherwise disclose such materials to third parties. Any third party to whom SHEL discloses such information will be pre-screened by SHEL, reasonably determined by SHEL to be reputable, and will be required by SHEL to use the materials for marketing products and services which SHEL determines, in its sole judgment, visitors might find of interest. Generally speaking, however, SHEL uses reasonable efforts to limit its use of Personal Information to reasonable business purposes. For example, SHEL may use Personal Information to contact you, via e-mail or regular mail, to provide you with information that SHEL believes may be of interest. Personal Information also might be used for editorial and feedback purposes, for internal SHEL marketing and promotional purposes, for a statistical analysis of users’ behavior, for product development, for content improvement and to customize the content and layout of the Site.

6. Opt-Out Right. Visitors may exercise the right to opt-out of having their Personal Information collected by SHEL, used by SHEL for secondary purposes, disclosed to third parties, or used by SHEL or third parties to send promotional correspondences to the visitor. Such opt-out rights may be exercised by contacting SHEL via postal mail at the address below or e-mail at the address above. All such correspondence must clearly identify you by name and address and must identify its purpose as the exercise of your opt-out rights. Your opt-out rights shall not apply, however, to our need to disclose information you submit to us by filling out a form to apply for employment at one of our Schools.
