(e.g. first and last names, email address, a home or physical address, a telephone
number, institution or affiliation) that TeachEngineering may hold. You can visit any
TeachEngineering web site without identifying who you are, or revealing personally
Any personally identifiable information TeachEngineering obtains about a user of its web
sites, services, search systems, events, or activities is information supplied voluntarily
by the user as part of using the TeachEngineering web site, or signing up for a particular
service, activity or event, or in requesting information from TeachEngineering.
TeachEngineering is not responsible for the privacy practices of non TeachEngineering web sites,
services or organizations to which a TeachEngineering web site, document or service may
link, refer, or recommend.
At this time, TeachEngineering uses the personal information that you provide in order to
record and support your activities within TeachEngineering web sites and web-based
services, to provide you information about TeachEngineering and related activities or
events, and support your participation in activities and events. TeachEngineering does
not sell, rent, or share any personal information that it collects on its web sites or
web-based services, or in organizing any activity or event. TeachEngineering reserves the
right, however, to change this policy, and will give you sufficient notice prior to doing
so to allow you to "opt-in" to having your information shared.
Personal information about TeachEngineering members and users may, from time to time, be
shared with outside contractors, auditors, consultants, collaborators, and others
contracted by TeachEngineering to assist in carrying out financial or operational
activities. TeachEngineering informs recipients of information about safeguarding
personal information, and requires them to use it only for an authorized purpose
of the activity.
TeachEngineering will disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or
in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to the edicts of the
law or comply with legal processes served to you, TeachEngineering, or the site.
TeachEngineering web sites and TeachEngineering search and discovery systems maintain both
raw log files and an organized database of documents retrieved and search queries entered.
Information extracted from these log files (e.g., the pages requested, referral URLs,
estimation of time spent on a page, estimation of a user session, result sets from search
queries) is processed in aggregate to help TeachEngineering gauge the effectiveness of its
web sites and services, improve the performance and structure of its web sites and
services, and for generating general use statistics. TeachEngineering may share this type
of information with its collaborators, sponsors and contractors to evaluate and improve
the site and may publish these aggregate data as the result of academic research.
In order to use some TeachEngineering services, a user may be required to have a persistent
identifier (e.g. a login identifier.) These identifiers may link to personally
identifiable information the user supplies TeachEngineering as part of registering or
signing up for a service. These identifiers will not be linked to general use information
except where the user has explicitly agreed to this action when signing up for the service
(and where it may be a requirement to use the service) or when a user has volunteered to
participate in an evaluation study of library collection use.
IP Addresses and domain names are included in both the raw log files and the organized database and
are used in helping to compute aggregate statistics (e.g., as a basis for defining a use
session.) These IP Addressess are not used to link TeachEngineering use to any other
personally identifiable information that TeachEngineering may hold.
in conjunction with a service that requires keeping track of a user's sessions, or
actions, (e.g., a service allowing a user to see a history of their previous search
TeachEngineering hosts and maintains publicly viewable curriculum reviews and suggestions
for curriculum improvements submitted by its users. Users should note that that any
information they post as a review or as a suggestion for curriculum improvement is
available to all persons accessing TeachEngineering.
Students are advised to consult with their parents or teachers before registering for
any service or giving any personal information online.
