Do Not Sell My Personal Information
Effective Date: January 1, 2020
Connections Education LLC, dba Pearson Online & Blended Learning K-12 USA (collectively, "Connections"), a Pearson company, respects your privacy and takes the duty to protect it seriously. As a service provider for public schools, monetizing your personal information would be a violation of our values.
Some states have developed a more nuanced definition of “selling” and “personal information”. Please see below for more detailed information on your particular state.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a new law, effective January 1, 2020, that gives California residents the right to opt out of the sale of their Personal Information by a business subject to the law. The CCPA does not apply to non-profit or government institutions.
The CCPA defines “personal information” and “sale” very broadly to include data sharing that does not involve monetary payments and may not include names or email addresses. It is unclear whether third party targeted advertising cookies involve the sale of Personal Information under the CCPA. Please also see the Do Not Track information in our California Supplemental Privacy Statement.
