For purposes of this Privacy Statement, references to “You” or “Your” mean (i) you in your individual capacity, (ii) your company, which may be a school or school district, and (iii) students, employees, representatives and agents of Your school or school district that are registered with The Story of America and that have a valid security identification and password to access and use the Resources (collectively the “Authorized Users”).

“Personally Identifiable Information” generally refers to any data that could potentially identify a specific individual. While You have access to the Resources, The Story of America may collect the following Personally Identifiable Information about You:
Personally Identifiable Information does not include “De-identified Information,” which is any data or information that cannot be traced back to an individual (except for Identifiable Use Results, as defined above).
How Is Personally Identifiable Information Used and/or Disclosed?
The Story of America does not sell Personally Identifiable Information to any affiliated entity of The Story of America or any third-party, nor does it use such information for any sort of behavioral advertising. However, The Story of America may use and disclose Personally Identifiable Information for a range of educational, compliance and quality assurance purposes.
The Story of America may disclose Personally Identifiable Information to the following individuals or entities under the following circumstances:
The Story of America is permitted to use and/or disclose Personally Identifiable Information about You when The Story of America has Your consent. The Story of America does not need Your consent to use De-identified Information.
Can I Access or Change My Personally Identifiable Information?
Each school and/or school district is permitted via functionality made available by the Resources to determine what Personally Identifiable Information (if any) is accessible by Authorized Users and to which Authorized Users in particular. In certain circumstances, a school and/or school district may be entitled to permit one or more Authorized Users to change Personally Identifiable Information. Any requests by Students or parents to access and/or change Personally Identifiable Information must be made to the school and/or school district in the first instance, and these entities will maintain a record of all such access and amendment requests and of any actual changes made. To the extent that a student and/or parent makes a direct request to The Story of America to access and/or amend Personally Identifiable Information, The Story of America will forward that request to the school and/or school district for response.
Unless required by law to maintain certain information for a longer period of time, The Story of America retains Personally Identifiable Information only for as long as a student’s school and/or school district maintains a subscription with The Story of America to one or more of the Resources. Once a subscription to a particular Resource is cancelled or
terminated, The Story of America will, within a reasonable period of time, delete all Personally Identifiable Information associated with that Resource. However, The Story of America may continue to retain, on a de-identified basis, any and all information that was submitted to or through that Resource.
The Story of America implements and maintains a range of reasonable measures designed to protect Personally Identifiable Information from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no internet-based service can be 100% safe from potential security breaches, and thus The Story of America cannot guarantee that Personally Identifiable Information will never be accessed, used, or disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Policy.
