Privacy Policy

Effective date: May 15, 2014

Educating Industries, the parent company operating, is an educational organization devoted to helping individuals, companies, and organizations increase their understanding and awareness of internet-based threats, scams and fraudulent practices, and thus significantly decrease their risks and associated lost productivity. Since 2012, our mission has been to test educational products, inform the public, protect consumers and advocate on their behalf. Our Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) provides information on how we collect and use consumer information provided to us through all channels, including online, mobile/wireless, telephonic, direct mail or other communications and interactions. Our organization is referred to throughout the Policy as “Educating Industries, LLC,” “EI,” “we” or “us.” The EI Web site, and other products and services covered by this Policy are referred to within the Policy as “our Sites” and “our products and services.”


The Policy applies to the entire Educating Industries, family of products and services, including any new products or services. It relates to information we collect from you, including personally identifying information and information that does not identify you personally. Personally identifying information may include, for example, some or all of the following: your name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, mobile phone number, passwords, credit/debit card information (also referred to as payment card information), user name and password and demographic information.


The Policy is incorporated into and subject to our End User Licensing Agreement (EULA). By using our products and services, you consent to our EULA and Privacy Policy, including our use and disclosure of your personal information as delineated in the Policy.

Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
There are many features of our products and services for which no personally identifiable information is required to be provided by you. However, you will need to provide us with personal information about yourself if you are interested in obtaining certain information, purchasing our products and services or participating in other activities with EI, such as contests, webinars, or other special initiatives. If you use any third-party social media services that are integrated with our products and services, or purchase products or services from third-party services through our sites, we may receive personally identifiable information that you have made available to us via those services.

If you provide us with PII through any channel, we use it for the purpose for which it was collected, as well as to contact you regarding your use of our products and services, matters that affect you and/or information about our products and services; we do NOT share your PII with anyone outside of EI, except as required by law.

When you provide us with information in connection with a particular activity or otherwise purchase our products and services or provide your contact information, including an email address or telephone number you expressly consent to:
(i) our communicating to you future information about Educating Industries products, programs and services using the information you provided to us; and
(ii) that we have the authority to contact you via the information you provide. You attest that you have the legal authority over any telephone number you provide to us and can provide us with the authorization to contact you.

Submission of Posts and Comments
We collect information that you voluntarily provide through various tools on our Sites, including messages you post in any public discussion group (forums) and blog comments (“User Generated Content”). In order to post a comment, EI requires you to be logged in to the site. Only your username and geographical location will be posted with your comment/post.

User Generated Content is public. If you don’t want people to know your email address or any other personally identifiable information, do not include that information in the text of any message you post publicly. If you submit comments or posts, please be aware that we may share your submissions with other Web sites or provide links to your submissions from other Web sites. The posting of User Generated Content is subject to our EULA.

Information Collected Through Technology
When you use any of our Sites, we or our service providers may collect tracking information such as your browser type, mobile device type, the type of operating system you use, the domain name of your Internet service provider, and pages visited on the Sites. We use this information for aggregate reporting, so, for example, we may know how long the average user spends on our Sites or which pages or features get the most attention.

We do not allow third-party ads on our Sites. We may place ads for Educating Industries products or services on other Web sites or provide some of our content to these other sites. If you view a Web page where our ads or content appear, the online site may place a cookie or Web beacon on your computer. This allows the site to recognize the computer when it is used to return to that site or to measure advertising response. These data are not linked to personal data in any Educating Industries databases. These data also may be used by the external site to measure advertising effectiveness, content interest and relevance.

Our Sites and other products and services may contain links to third-party Web sites or access to third-party services for your convenience and information. If you disclose your personal information to third parties, different rules will apply to their use and disclosure of personal information you disclose to them. We are not responsible for and do not control the privacy practices or the content of those other sites or services, so you should investigate their policies before you disclose your personal information to them. Similarly, if you subscribe to or purchase a Educating Industries product or service or communicate with us through a company or service other than Educating Industries such as a digital application service provider, telecommunication service provider or social media service, then the privacy policy of that entity will control any information you provide to that third party and will operate independently of this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of a company before submitting any personal information.
We take very seriously our responsibility to maintain your privacy with respect to your personally identifiable information. We will share that information only as described in this policy.

Sharing With Other Companies For Direct-Mail Promotional Offers
We will not rent, exchange, sell, or otherwise share your PII with any other company for promotional purposes.

Sharing With Service Providers
We may contract with other companies to provide certain services on our behalf, including but not limited to payment-card processing, email distribution, mobile messaging, Web site hosting, mobile payment processing via wireless carriers, monitoring of user accounts, digital publishing, analytics and promotions management. We provide these companies only with the information they need to perform their services.

Mandatory Disclosure for Certain Promotional Offers or Contests
If you provide your name for a promotional offer to enter a contest, and you win a prize, we reserve the right post the names of winners online and will file your name, address and phone number with state agencies and/or otherwise disclose and/or file a winners’ list as required by law.

Educating Industries provides you with the ability to access and edit your personal information in your online account, if you have one. To update your information, please log in to and visit the My Account page.
We work to protect your personal information from loss, misuse or unauthorized alteration.  We use data encryption technology to help protect against loss, misuse or alteration of your sensitive credit or debit card information and we use encryption protection for any payment authorizations for transactions we request through any channel.

Any unauthorized access to or use of any of our Sites and other products and services or to the information collected and maintained by us should be immediately brought to our attention by contacting us via email or website. We will investigate and, if necessary, take action to mitigate the harm from any violation of the security of your personal information of which we become aware.

In the unlikely event that we believe the security of your personally identifiable information, such as payment card information, in our possession or control has been compromised, we will endeavor to provide required notice as soon as possible under the circumstances and, if appropriate, will post notices on any applicable Educating Industries Web site.

Security of Passwords and Public Forums
When you set up an online account with us, you are asked to establish a username and password. When you later log in to your account, you will be asked to enter your username and password to protect the security of your online account. If you want to change your password or other subscriber information, you may do so at any time through My Account. If you have forgotten your username and wish to log on, you will be asked to provide the email address you used when you created the account (or an updated email address that you have previously provided), and an email containing your username will be sent promptly to that email address. If you wish to log on to your account and have forgotten your password, the online system will request both your email address and your username, and we will promptly send you an email with a temporary password. You will be prompted to reset it to a new password.

It is your responsibility to control the dissemination and use of your username and password and to control access to and use of your account. We urge you to keep your password confidential and not disclose it to anyone. We also recommend that you never reuse the same password on different Web sites and other online products and services. Be sure to sign off when finished using our Sites, especially if you are using a shared or public computer. We will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this provision, for example, a third party’s unauthorized access to your information.

You may choose to send us emails. Information disclosed in emails may not be secure or encrypted and thus may be available to others. Exercise caution when deciding to disclose any personal or confidential information in emails.

IMPORTANT: Although we take these steps to protect your personal information, no method of transmitting or storing electronic data is ever completely secure. Therefore, we cannot promise or guarantee that such information will never be accessed, used or released in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy.

Our Sites and other products and services are oriented toward a general audience and intended for adults only. We do not knowingly request information from children.

We may revise and update the Policy if our practices change, as technology changes, or as we add new products and services or change existing ones. If we make any material changes to the Policy or how we handle your personal information, the Effective Date of the Privacy Policy will change. If we plan to use any personal information in a manner that is materially different from that stated in the Policy at the time we collected such information, we will give you a reasonable opportunity to consent to the change. If you do not consent, your personal information will be used as agreed to under the terms of the Policy in effect at the time we obtained that information. If we make a significant or material change in the way we use your personal information, we will make you aware by prominently posting a notice on our Web sites 30 days in advance of any such material change. By using our Sites or other products and services after the Effective Date of such material changes, you are deemed to consent to our then-current Privacy Policy, provided that we will obtain your affirmative consent where legally required.
