Information You Provide
Newsletter: If you sign up to receive the Beyond Special Education newsletter, you provide your name and email address, which are used solely for the delivery of the newsletter to your inbox. I would never share them with any “third parties.” You can always unsubscribe by clicking the UNSUBSCRIBE link in at the bottom of the newsletter.
Communications: If you contact me via email, either by writing to me directly or by replying to the automated email newsletter, I will receive your email address and any other information you choose to provide.
Donations: If you choose to to Beyond Special Education — Thank you! — you provide your name, donation amount, and payment card information. The secure financial service provider that handles these transactions (called Braintree) will receive your payment card information, which will only be used to process your donation.
Information Automatically Collected
Usage Information: Beyond Special Education is on the publishing platform WordPress, which includes a statistical analytics feature to help publishers understand how their readers use their websites. This means that anonymized information of the pages Beyond Special Education readers visit and the times of those visits are represented in these statistics. WordPress may add other features to their analytics at any time, which will be available to me as a publisher. However, I do not view these statistics.
What Does Beyond Special Education Do With Your Information
I use your information solely to communicate with you if you have opted in to receive the newsletter, to facilitate donations, and to better understand how you use the site in order to improve it. I don’t share your information with any “third parties,” though it does live — securely — within the external services that deliver the email newsletter (MailChimp) and process donations (Braintree).
Data Transfers: Beyond Special Education is based in the United States, so if you visit the website from another country, your data may be transferred to the United States and other countries that may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided information.
Data Security: I do everything I can to make Beyond Special Education and your information as secure as possible. However, no security measures can be 100% secure for reasons far beyond any one person’s intent and control.
Beyond Special Education participates in the Amazon Services LLC Influencer/Associates Program, an influencer/affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn commissions by linking to Amazon. This means that whenever you buy an item on Amazon from a link on here, I get a small percentage of its price. That helps support Beyond Special Education by offsetting a fraction of what it takes to maintain the site, and is very much appreciated.
