We may collect Personally Identifiable Information from you, for example, when you visit areas on the www.dontletthemdrop.com where you can submit your name, address and/or other Personal Information. The Personal Information that you submit is gathered only on a voluntary basis; you may choose not to provide Personal Information and you will still be able to visit most of the web site, although you may not be able to participate in certain interactive activities.
We may collect limited Personally Identifiable Information, including, but not limited to your name and/or any “nickname,” date of birth, email and postal address and any other information that would allow someone to identify or contact you, as well as information about your personal/product preferences, survey responses and online activities, if any, that is known by EdisonLearning. We may also collect limited Personal Information about others from you including, but not limited to, name and email address.
We may collect Personal Information for one of several different purposes, for example:

• to allow us to send you the specific information or materials that you have requested, such as a newsletter, or other materials;
• to inquire regarding employment or business opportunities with EdisonLearning;

We sometimes use the non-Personally Identifiable Information that we collect to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. We may use this information in the aggregate (grouped with information from other users) to analyze site usage, as well as to offer you products, programs, or services.
Typically, we will seek consent for the use of your Personal Information at the time of collection. In certain circumstances, consent may be sought after the information has been collected but before use (for example when we want to use information for a use not previously identified). The form of consent we seek, including whether it is express or implied, will largely depend on the sensitivity of the information and the reasonable expectations of the individual in the circumstances. You may withdraw consent at any time, subject to legal and contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. If you wish to withdraw consent, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will inform you of the implications of withdrawing consent at or before the time of withdrawal.
We will not, as a condition of the supply of a product or service, require you to consent to the collection, use or disclosure of information beyond that required to fulfill the explicitly specified and required purposes for which the information is being required.
