California Do Not Track Disclosure

Do Not Track is a privacy preference that users can set in their web browsers. When a user turns on the Do Not Track signal, the browser sends a message to websites requesting them not to track the user. At this time, we do not respond to Web browser “do not track” settings or signals. We deploy cookies and other technologies on our Service to collect information about you and your browsing activity, even if you have turned on the Do Not Track signal.

California Consumer Privacy Act

We are not subject to the eligibility requirements of the California Consumer Privacy Act.

Children Under the Age of 18

Visitors under the age of 18 must obtain permission from their parents or guardians before sending any personal identifying information to any page within the Constellation website.

Children Under the Age of 13

We take reasonable efforts to be in compliance with the requirements of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). Our Site is not intended for children under 13 years of age, we do not solicit information of any kind from children under the age of 13, and we do not and will not knowingly contact or collect Personal Information from children under 13.

The only Personal Information we may receive through this Site about children under the age of 13 is information provided by the parent or legal guardian or information provided by the child as part of that child’s participation in our education program with consent of their parent or legal guardian. For example, we may collect personal information from children under the age of 13 when our students under the age of 13 use their Constellation account to communicate with us. Constellation student accounts may allow for students to share work, send files from home to Constellation, write to their teachers and turn in class work, among other uses. Constellation requires all parents and legal guardians of students under the age of 13 to review and sign our Technology and Internet Acceptable Use Policy, otherwise such student will not receive or will be denied access to her Constellation account. If a Constellation student chooses to correspond with us through their account or email, we may store, process and/or use the personal information contained therein to communicate with the student and/or her parent or legal guardian, to address technical issues with the student’s account or access to the network, to update our records and perform other administrative functions. We may retain the content of the student’s messages together with their email address and our responses. We may provide the collected information to employees, agents or service providers acting on Constellation’s behalf in connection with the activities described above, but we will only provide those employees, agents and service providers the personal information they need to perform their functions for us. By enrolling a child at Constellation, a parent is consenting to the collection of that information.

If you are a parent or legal guardian and are concerned about the disclosure of personal information about your child that we may obtain via this Site, you may review your child’s personal information, ask to have it deleted and refuse to allow any further collection or use of the child’s information. You can contact us at the contact information listed below.

Our Site, products and Services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, once verified, we will promptly obtain parental or guardian consent, and in the absence of such consent, will delete the information.

Accessing and Correcting Your Information and Opting Out of Communications

If at any time, you would like to review, correct, erase, object to, and/or dispute the information we have about you or if you would like to change your preferences for contacts from us, you can let us know by contacting us at the address below. Constellation will make good faith efforts to implement requested changes in our active databases subject to the applicable laws. Note, however, that we may continue to store information about you as required by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may also retain cached or archived copies of information about you for a certain period of time. We will endeavor to deal with all requests for access and modifications in a timely manner.

If you would like to opt-out of promotional information from us or unsubscribe from our email list, please use the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our newsletter emails, or contact us through the email or postal address listed below. However, please note that even if you opt-out of receiving marketing communications or donor requests, we reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to notices of changes to this Website Privacy Policy, or similar administrative or transactional messages. These transactional messages may be unaffected if you choose to opt-out from marketing communications.

With your consent, we may send push notifications or alerts to your mobile device. You can deactivate these messages at any time by changing the notification settings on your mobile device.

‘Do Not Track’ Notifications

Some browsers allow you to automatically notify websites you visit not to track you using a “Do Not Track” signal. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many websites and online services, we currently do not alter our practices when we receive a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit All About Do Not Track (DNT).
