Various Server-Side Logging Details Collected
In order to refine our user experience, we have implemented various analytics on our server in order to see how users interact with our website. This is distinct from other tracking tools that other companies may use that are client-side (such as cookies). Examples of logs include how many lessons a user has generated, or how many people go to their user settings to edit things. This can help us determine how the average user goes about our website, so that we can make certain things clearer and more useful. It can even help us keep our website (and your data!) secure, because we can track how many invalid password attempts may be occurring, for example. At this time, we do not share these logs with any third-parties, because we do not use the analytics providers that others use. Technically it is stored in a database with servers owned by a third party, but broadly speaking, this data is basically not shared with anyone else.
Billing Information Collected by Payment Processors
When signing up for our paid services, users enter credit card information. This is done via third-party payment providers such as Stripe or Braintree by Paypal. Aside from the billing address information specified above for sales tax computation, we do not store credit card information such as card numbers in our database. Our third party providers have their own storage procedures to comply with Payment Card Information (PCI) standards, and information can be found on their respective websites.
Information We May Obtain About Users via Email Analytics
In order to ensure we are delivering the best experience to our users, we leverage additional technologies in our emails provided by Postmark, a service that provides email services to us, including but not limited to transactional and marketing emails. The technologies allows us to determine answers to questions like the following:
- Are our emails even getting to our users' respective inboxes?
- Are users not bothering to open our emails?
- Are users opening our emails, but not finding our content interesting enough to be worth clicking the links?
- How can we do better to ensure we're delivering content that our users care about?
The second technology we use involves tracking links in our emails. In plain English, it helps us determine whether you just happened to access our website from elsewhere on the Internet, or if you instead clicked a link originating from your email. More details may be found at https://postmarkapp.com/developer/user-guide/tracking-links.
Information We May Obtain About Users via Email Content
All users -- registered or unregistered -- may reach out to us from time to time to provide personal information. Email data may be retained in accordance with applicable data retention laws. Email data may also be deleted in accordance with applicable user privacy laws.

Curriculink was founded to support homeschooling in America before it grew to facilitate traditional educators as well. Our payment processing configuration does not attempt to support non-US residents. As such, we do not intentionally conduct business with EU residents. Having said that, we strive to comply with the GDPR to the extent feasible. If you are an EU resident and believe we have collected or processed your personal information in violation of the GDPR, please contact us at email@example.com. We will promptly investigate your concern.
Do Not Track
You can set a preference in your browser called "Do Not Track" to inform websites that you do not want to be tracked. While privacy is clearly an important consideration to us, we do not handle or respond to "Do Not Track" signals. This is because no clear standard has yet been adopted, to the best of our knowledge.
