GATHERING YOUR INFORMATION
Ocean Legacy collects personal information (such as your name, e-mail address, address) from the EPIC ACADEMY website only if you choose to provide that information to us.
Ocean Legacy asks visitors to provide certain personal information in order to provide relevant student and teacher services specific to our online learning platform. Ocean Legacy also may ask visitors to provide personal information in other limited circumstances specified at the time the information is gathered.
Like all other web servers, Ocean Legacy’s web server automatically creates log files for each visitor who accesses their site. These “access logs” allow us to make the site more useful to our visitors. The access logs DO NOT record a visitor’s name, address, phone number, credit card numbers, or any other personally-identifying information. Rather, they contain some or all of the following information:
• The Internet Protocol Address (IP Address) of the machine which accessed our website.
• The date of the visit.
• The time of the visit.
• The path taken through our website.
• The type of computer and browser being used.
• A list of files being viewed.
• Any errors encountered.
Ocean Legacy also uses ‘cookies’ to collect information. A cookie is a string of characters that can be written to a file on the user’s hard drive when the user visits a website. Only the website that set the cookie can read it, and it can only be used as a record keeping device to store information that the site already has. It cannot, for example, be used to read other information from the user’s hard drive.
USE OF INFORMATION
The use of personally-identifying information is not used for anything else besides the purposes of the EPIC ACADEMY (edu.oceanlegacy.ca) website. The use of personally-identifying information is limited to the following: responding to user e-mails; listing name, location (city, state and/or country), phone number, website, description and other information provided by users when sending messages or other submissions; editorial purposes such as contacting users; sending communications, providing certificates of completion, user profiles details or other student or teacher info sent to or provided to EPIC ACADEMY (edu.oceanlegacy.ca).
Ocean Legacy/EPIC ACADEMY (edu.oceanlegacy.ca) also may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or if it believes that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law or with legal process, (b) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Ocean Legacy website, or (c) protect the personal safety or property of Ocean Legacy website users, the public or Ocean Legacy and its employees.
If you do not want your personally-identifying information to be collected or used for any of these purposes, you can simply ‘opt out’ according to the process described below.
Ocean Legacy has in place what we believe to be appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Credit card information provided to the Ocean Legacy for product purposes is protected against unauthorized use by 128-bit encryption and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) security features, which scramble your personal information so that only your web browser and our website’s server can decipher it. We also do not keep any form of credit card information on our server, rather we use accredited third party services: PayPal and Stripe to collection donations.
Please contact us to a) correct or update any personal information in the Ocean Legacy EPIC ACADEMY (edu.oceanlegacy.ca) database that you state is erroneous, b) opt-out of future communications from Ocean Legacy or c) request Ocean Legacy to make reasonable efforts to remove your personal information from the Ocean Legacy online database. The user understands that it may be impossible to delete personal information entirely because of backups and records of deletions.
Ocean Legacy and EPIC ACADEMY (edu.oceanlegacy.ca) reserves the right to change this policy. Any changes to this policy will be posted to this page as soon as reasonably possible, so please check this page periodically. Use of the EPIC ACADEMY (edu.oceanlegacy.ca) website constitutes consent to any policy then in effect.
