Ravenna Solutions Privacy Notice
Last updated: August 20, 2014
Ravenna Solutions offers services whereby parents/guardians and educational institutions may interact and exchange certain information (such as report card information, applications, etc.) with teachers, admission staff and administrators at private K-12 educational institutions. Below you will find the Privacy Notice for the www.ravenna-hub.com website and services, (collectively, the "Website"). By visiting the Website, you are accepting the practices described below.
We may update this Privacy Notice in the future to reflect technological advances, and we encourage you to return to this page from time to time for any updates.
If you have any questions regarding this Privacy Notice or if you feel that we have not complied with the policies stated here, please contact our website coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at the following address:
Ravenna Solutions, Inc
16301 NE 8th ST #241
Bellevue, WA 98008
"Personal Data" means any information provided by or to Customer, or to which access was provided in the course of Ravenna Solutions’ performance of this Agreement that (i) identifies an individual (by name, signature, address, telephone number, email address, or other unique identifier), or (ii) that can be used to authenticate that individual (including, without limitation, employee identification number, a government-issued identification number, passwords or PINs, answers to security questions, or other personal identifiers).
Information About Minors.
Neither the Website nor the services are targeted toward minors under the age of 18. Ravenna Solutions does not knowingly permit registration or submission of Personal Data by anyone under the age of 13. Note that students applying for some grade levels and above may be asked to complete student questionnaire/essays. They do not include/request personally identifiable information from such students. Of course, parents or legal guardians of children under the age of 13 may register to use the Website and submit Personal Data on behalf of a child under the age of 13. The information in this Privacy Notice applies to Personal Data regarding both the parent/guardian and the child. By registering on the Website, you affirm and verify that you are 18 or older. If you believe a child under the age of 13 has provided any Personal Data to us through the Website, please notify us immediately. Any Personal Data provided by a child under the age of 13 will be permanently and immediately destroyed.
WHAT WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
Ravenna Solutions may collect information through your active submission of information through the Website, through submission by 3rd party service providers (such as schools) to whom you have submitted such information, from parties from whom you have requested recommendations (e.g., teachers), or passively through use of automated technologies.
Active Information Collection – Submission Through Website
Much of the Personal Data we collect from our visitors is submitted voluntarily in response to our specific requests for such information. For example, visitors may provide us with Personal Data to sign up for our newsletter or in response to polls or other interactivity incorporated into the Website. We do not require users to provide any more information than necessary to participate in the related activity.
It is also collected in response to specific requests from the educational institutions to which you are applying (e.g., via application forms etc.).
The information we actively collect from you may include some or all of the following: name, date of birth, address, email address, username, password and/or gender. Again, our collection involves collecting information from the party submitting info (usually the parent/or guardian of a student) about the submitter themselves AND about the student that is the subject of an application.
Active Information Collection – Submission by and to 3rd Parties
As part of the Services, Ravenna Solutions collects information from you (via templates and other submission tools) and provides that information to designated educational institution(s). Some of that information may include Personal Data. For example, you may be completing an application for your child to enter a school. Ravenna Solutions collects applicable information from you and provides it to the applicable school. Ravenna does not rent, sell or lease customer lists or any personally identifiable data to third parties. We use and disclose this information for the following purposes:
- As Directed. We may disclose your information to the educational institutions selected by you.
- As Permitted or Required by Law. We use or disclose your information as permitted or required by law. We may further disclose your information to law enforcement officials in response to an administrative subpoena, a warrant, or an administrative request intended to identify or locate a suspect, victim, or witness. We also may disclose your information for the purpose of reporting a crime on our premises.
- Aggregated Information. We may gather usage data, or trend or demographic information from time to time. We will not share such information with any person or entity in a manner that identifies you or any person as an individual, unless we let you know that at the time of collection, or we have your permission. When we share such information with third parties, we will give them aggregate information only.
- Payment Processing. We may offer the ability to submit school application fees electronically. In this case we will collect billing related information from you, such as a credit card number and billing address. We may share that information with a third party solely for the purpose of processing your payment.
Note About 3rd Party Practices
As stated above, we share the information you submit with schools you select. Ravenna Solutions does not and cannot control the use and/or disclosure of your information by such schools. Please review the privacy practices of such schools prior to submitting information. Similarly, we do not and cannot control the use and/or disclosure of your information by third party payment processors.
Passive Information Collection
As you navigate through the Website, other information may be collected through use of technologies which are common among websites and online environments. For example, we currently track Internet protocol ("IP") addresses, which is a unique string of numbers assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider.
We also use "cookies," which are small pieces of information or files that a website puts on your computer when you explore the Website. The cookies we use allow us to collect, store and sometimes track information about your use of the Website or to save your settings (such as your username and password) or provide a customized experience.
In addition to our active information collection efforts, we may also use technology to gather operational information about the technology you use, such as your browser, type of computer, operating systems and Internet service providers. This information cannot be used to identify you personally.
Inspection and Copies
You have the right to request an inspection of copies of the information you have submitted. Ravenna Solutions may limit the information that you can inspect or copy if we have reason to believe that is necessary to protect you or another person from harm. If Ravenna Solutions limits your right to inspect or copy, you can ask for a review of that decision.
If you believe that the information Ravenna Solutions maintains about you is inaccurate or incomplete, you may request an amendment to complete or correct the information. Please submit your request in writing and explain the reason for the amendment. If the amendment is made, Ravenna Solutions will make reasonable efforts to inform others, including people you identify, that the information has been amended and we will use our best efforts to include the amendment with any future disclosure. Ravenna Solutions may decline to amend information under certain circumstances, for example, if we did not create the original record (which may sometimes be the case for our services). If we decline to amend the information, you have the right to submit a statement of disagreement. Please note that we are allowed to attach a rebuttal statement in response to your statement of disagreement.
If you would like a paper copy of this Privacy Notice, you may request one.
You have the right to submit a complaint if you believe we have violated your privacy rights. To submit a complaint, write to Ravenna Solutions at the address above. You also have the right to submit a complaint to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Public Health & Human Services. We will not retaliate against you for submitting a complaint
Ravenna Solutions endeavors to protect online information according to applicable laws and established company security standards and practices. We have security measures in place designed to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information under our control, and we continually evaluate new technologies for safeguarding your information. However, we cannot guarantee the confidentiality or security of electronic transmissions via the Internet because they may potentially use unsecure computers and links, and data may be lost or intercepted by unauthorized parties during such transmission. If you wish to submit personal or confidential information by a more secure means of communication, please contact us.
Sensitive information you provide to us online is protected by industry-standard high-strength SSL/TLS (Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security) using an EV (Extended Validation) certificate. For most recent browsers, this EV certificate will cause your browser's address bar to turn green. This technology encrypts your account information as it moves between your PC's browser and Ravenna Solutions' computer systems. When information is encrypted in this way, it becomes nearly impossible for anyone other than Ravenna Solutions to read it. This secure session helps protect the safety and confidentiality of your information when you interact with Ravenna Solutions online.
