The Information We Collect
Information is collected from you when you register with us. The information we collect is clearly set out on the webpage on which we collect it. To comply with The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule (COPPA Rule) Parents must always complete a Parental Consent Form before we collect any student information.
Why We Collect It
We collect information about you so that we can complete the registration process. CyberUp is a 501(c)(3) organization so a lot of the information collected around demographics can be used for grant writing purposes and our internal goals around diversity.
Who We Disclose It To
4.1 We will only pass on information about you as an individual (as opposed to aggregate information) to other CyberUp staff or third parties to enable us to perform services requested by you or with your prior consent. Any personal information provided is confidential and protected and may be disclosed only under specific conditions and with prior written authorizations and consents.
4.2 If you give your consent, we will pass your contact details to third parties who may then occasionally send communications to you about the cyber competition.
CyberUp will send competition related materials to Teachers, Navigators, and Individual Participants. Any individual may opt out of these e-mails by clicking the unsubscribe link in the e-mail or by contacting the CyberUp Program Office. Opting out of the emails will mean that you will not receive critical competition and program information. CyberUp receives statistics showing us how many people opened the e-mail and what links they clicked to read. This helps us know what teams have accessed the program related emails.
CyberUp sends occasional surveys to PowerUp: Cyber Games participants. These surveys help us understand how to improve our program and what impact our program has had on our participants and their education and career goals and experiences.
If you want to be excluded from any or all of these mailings or lists, you may do so by e-mail to the CyberUp Program Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 636-492-1346. Be sure to include your complete name and email address to allow us to remove you from mailings.
Keeping information about you secure is very important to us and certain sections of the site may encrypt data using cryptographic and hashing standards. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure. We strive to protect your personal information, but we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you send to us, and you do so at your own risk. We use reasonable precautions to keep the personal information you disclose both in your browsing and to only release this information to third parties we believe share our commitment to privacy. However, we are not responsible for any breach of security or for the actions of these parties.
