Please familiarize yourself with the different ways GO Public Schools uses the information that we and others collect from visitors to our website, and how you can request changes to your Personally Identifiable Information.

Personally Identifiable Information. 

This Privacy Policy serves as notice that we collect and use Personally Identifiable Information from certain visitors to our Website in the ways described below. As used in this Policy, Personally Identifiable Information includes a first and last name, a home or physical address, an email address, a telephone number, and any other identifier that permits the physical or online contacting of a specific user. We do not ask for, and you should never provide, your social security number.

Newsletters and Email to You. 

We require you to provide your email address through the Newsletter Link in order to send you the electronic newsletters and email messages that you request us to send. We may store this information and use or disclose it in other ways that are consistent with this Privacy Policy.

When you send us an email message or otherwise contact us, we may use the information you provide to us to respond to your communication and/or as described in this Privacy Policy. We may store this information and use or disclose it in other ways that are consistent with this Privacy Policy.

We collect and use your full name, mailing address, phone number, email address and credit card information provided to us when you make a donation to GO Public Schools via our Website in order to process your donation (either directly or through our providers). We may store this information and use or disclose it in other ways that are consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Disclosure to Third Parties Providing Services to GO Public Schools. 

Our operations and maintenance contractors and other vendors and service providers sometimes have limited access to your Personally Identifiable Information in the course of providing products or services to us. These contractors may include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, and/or content related to the operation and maintenance of the Website. Access to your Personally Identifiable Information by these contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary for the contractor to perform its limited function for us. We do not permit contractors to retain your Personally Identifiable Information.

Disclosure to Aligned Third-Party Nonprofit Organizations. 

We may share or exchange Personally Identifiable Information with other nonprofit organizations that have missions or operate programs that are consistent with our own. If we provide such an organization with your Personally Identifiable Information, its use of the information will be subject to its privacy policy. You may withdraw your consent to our sharing your Personally Identifiable Information by contacting us as described in Section 9 below. Please note that we will not sell your Personally Identifiable Information to any commercial enterprise.

Government Authorities, Legal Rights and Actions. 

GO Public Schools may share your Personally Identifiable Information with various government authorities in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process; to establish or exercise our legal rights or to protect our property; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases we reserve the right to raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us. We also may share your Personally Identifiable Information when we believe it is appropriate to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal or suspected illegal activities; to protect and defend the rights, property, or safety of GO Public Schools, the Website, our Website visitors, donors, or others; and in connection with our Terms of Use and other agreements.

Confidentiality & Security of Personally Identifiable Information. 

We consider the confidentiality and security of your information to be of the utmost importance. We will keep your Personally Identifiable Information private and will not share it with third parties, except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy. GO Public Schools takes reasonable measures to protect your Personally Identifiable Information from unauthorized disclosure to or access by third parties. Please note that we do not guarantee the security of Personally Identifiable Information, and there is some risk that an unauthorized third party may find a way to circumvent our security systems or that transmissions of your information over the Internet will be intercepted.

Updating or Deleting Your Personally Identifiable Information. 

We maintain a procedure in order to help you confirm that your Personally Identifiable Information remains correct and up-to-date. At any time, you may unsubscribe from certain email communications by clicking on the applicable link in those emails. You may also email us at privacy@gopublicschools.org in order to delete or update your Personally Identifiable Information on our systems or to opt out of further communications with us. We try to answer every email promptly, but may not always be able to do so. Keep in mind, however, that there will be residual information that will remain within our databases, access logs and other records, which may or may not contain your Personally Identifiable Information. If you have any privacy-related questions or unresolved problems, you may contact GO Public Schools using the information provided at the bottom of this page.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information. 

In addition to collecting Personally Identifiable Information from certain visitors to our Website, we may also collect non-personally identifiable information from visitors and share it with third parties in order to build higher quality, more useful services by performing statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our visitors, and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of our Website. Non-personally identifiable information is information that does not identify you individually, such as certain demographic information and information about the device you use to access our Website. It also includes tracking data we may collect about how you access and use our Website, but we will not connect such tracking data or any other non-personally identifiable information we collect to any of your Personally Identifiable Information.


Cookies are small data files stored on your computer at the request of a website. Our website uses cookies to help us identify and track visitors to our website in order to improve our visitors’ experiences. We do not combine the information collected through the use of cookies with visitors’ Personally Identifiable Information. Visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies.

Google Analytics. 

We may use the Google Analytics interest and demographics reporting feature, which uses cookies and other, similar technologies to collect information about the use of our Website anonymously and reports website trends to us, without identifying individual visitors. You can learn about Google’s practices by going to www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/, and opt out of them by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Do Not Track Signals. 

Some web browsers may also give you the ability to enable a “do not track” setting. This setting sends a special signal to the websites you encounter while web browsing. This “do not track” signal is different from disabling certain forms of tracking by declining cookies in your browser settings, as browsers with the “do not track” setting enabled still have the ability to accept cookies. Our website does not respond to web browser “do not track” signals at this time. If we do so in the future, we will describe how we do so in this Privacy Policy. For more information about “do not track,” visit www.allaboutdnt.org.

Children Under 13. 

We do not knowingly collect Personally Identifiable Information from children under 13 years of age. If you are under 13 years of age you should not provide Personally Identifiable Information to us. If GO Public Schools is informed or discovers that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with Personally Identifiable Information, we will immediately delete the information from our systems.

Changing Our Privacy Policy. 

Please note that we review our privacy practices from time to time, and that this Privacy Policy is subject to change. Any change, update, or modification will be effective immediately upon posting on our Website. We will notify you of any material change to this Privacy Policy by posting a notice on our Website’s homepage for a reasonable period of time following such update, and by changing the effective date (located at the bottom of this page). Be sure to return to this page periodically to ensure familiarity with the most current version of this Privacy Policy.
