Educational Services, Inc. Privacy Policy

California Residents: Please see our California Consumer Privacy Act notice for California Residents.

Last Modified: June 15, 2021

Educational Services, Inc. (collectively, "ESI," "we," "us," or "our," as applicable) values the privacy of our visitors, users, customers, applicants, and partners. ESI respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through our compliance with this policy. This Privacy Policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you provide when visiting ESI's Website, including https://educationalservicesinc.com (the "Website"), other websites owned by ESI, including https://esiaz.us; https://educationalservicesinc.com; https://employerservicesinc.com; https://internationalteachalliance.com; https://internationalteachalliance.org; https://retirerehire.com; https://learnerlink.com; https://smartschoolsplus.com; and https://smartworksplus.com and all other related products and services offered by ESI (individually and collectively, the "ESI Platforms"), our practices for collecting, using, protecting and disclosing that information and the choices you have associated with that information. This Privacy Policy applies only to information we obtain from you when you are online while visiting or using the ESI Platforms. It does not apply to information we have obtained or may obtain offline through other traditional means.

ESI complies with privacy laws like the California Consumer Privacy Act (herein called the "CCPA") and the General Data Protection Regulation (herein called the "GDPR"). The CCPA defines the privacy rights and how companies have to treat and protect the Personal Data and privacy of California residents. The GDPR defines the privacy rights and how companies have to treat and protect the Personal Data and privacy of European Union residents. ESI will apply these protections to all its visitors, users, customers, applicants and partners. In cases where these regulations differ, ESI will adhere to the regulation that offers the higher degree of protection.

This Privacy Policy provides you with the information about what Personal Information we collect, the purpose for which we collect it, what we disclose to whom and your rights limiting its use, etc. ESI does not sell, rent or loan Personal Information of its visitors, users, customers, applicants, and partners.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use the Website and ESI Platforms. By accessing or using the Website and ESI Platforms you agree to this Privacy Policy. This policy may change from time to time (see Changes to This Privacy Policy below). Your continued use of the Website and ESI Platforms after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates.

4. Automatically Collected Information

Some information is automatically received and sometimes collected from you when you visit or use the Website or ESI Platforms. The following lists the most common information that is automatically received or collected:

6. Online Payments/Credit Card Information Security

ESI is very concerned with the security of your credit card and payment data. For that reason, we do not capture, process or store any credit card related information on ESI's systems.

In cases where we provide paid products and/or services, we work with third-party services for payment processing (e.g., payment processors). Their core business is the capturing, processing and storing of your highly sensitive payment information. Information may be provided directly to our third-party payment processors, whose use of your personal information is governed by their respective Privacy Policy.

7. Cookies

Use of Cookies/Tracking Technology

When you interact with the Website and/or our ESI Platforms, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, "cookie" information, and the page you requested.

Cookies and other tracking technologies (such as pixels and beacons) are comprised of small bits of data that often include a de-identified or anonymous unique identifier. The Website, apps and other services send this data to your browser when you first request a web page and then store the data on your computer so the Website can access information when you make subsequent requests for pages from that service. We may use these technologies to collect and store information about your usage of the Website or ESI Platforms (such as the pages you have visited, content you have viewed, search queries you have run, and advertisements you have seen), which information is then used to understand your preferences so as to enable us to provide you with improved services in future visits, and to compile aggregate data about Website traffic and interactions so that we can offer better experiences and tools in the future.

Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, but you can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, or to block cookies altogether. Please consult the "Help" section of your browser for more information. Additional cookie-related information is available at https://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.Please note that by blocking any or all cookies, you may not have access to certain features, content, or personalization available through the Website.

We utilize email tracking systems that provide us with data such as who opened or forwarded an email, the time it was opened, and whether the reader clicked certain links within the email.

8. Analytics

We, as well as third-party vendors acting on our behalf (such as Google), may use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies), third-party cookies, or other third-party identifiers to gather anonymous analytics and statistics about our Website and how it is being used by our visitors so we can improve our Website and ESI Platforms. Our web server storage logs may collect the domain names, internet protocol addresses, the types of web browsers, and certain data of visitors to the Website.

Data about your activities online may be collected for use in providing advertising tailored to your individual interests, either by us, our affiliates, or third parties. We may work with third parties such as network advertisers and ad exchanges to serve advertisements across the internet and may use third party analytics service providers to evaluate and provide us and/or third parties with information about the use of these ads on third party Website and viewing of ads and of our content.

We and these third-party vendors, including Google, may use third-party technologies together with our own first party technologies in order to analyze ad impressions, your use of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services. The information collected may also include information about your visits to our Website, the pages you have viewed, and what content you have seen or interacted with. These third-party tracking technologies may be set to, among other things: (a) help deliver advertisements to you that you might be interested in; (b) prevent you from seeing the same advertisements too many times; and (c) understand the effectiveness of the advertisements that have been delivered to you.

You can opt out of certain advertising by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative consumer opt out page at http://optout.networkadvertising.org/ , by using the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout , or by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance's opt-out page at https://www.aboutads.info/choices . Please note that at this time we do not respond to browser-based "do not track" signals.

9. How We Store Your Information

Personal information received by ESI from you or third parties may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country where we or our service providers maintain facilities.

Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

We will take all the steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and no transfer of your personal information will take place to an organization or a country unless there are adequate controls in place, including the security of your data and other personal information, and as per applicable data privacy laws. This policy may not constitute your entire set of privacy rights, as these may also vary from country to country or state to state. To be certain of your privacy rights, you may wish to contact the appropriate agency in your country or state that is charged with overseeing privacy rights of consumers.
