Visiting Our Website from Outside the U.S.
If you are located outside the United States, the web privacy laws in your local jurisdiction may be different than those in the United States. Please note that because our website and its servers are located in the United States, they are governed by U.S. laws, not the laws of other countries. When you provide information to PEG using our website, including enrollment details, your information will be used, shared, managed, and protected according to United States law.
Non-personally identifiable information that PEG collects
We automatically receive Non-PI from your web browser or device connected to the Internet. That includes your IP address (the string of numbers that identifies the device), the name of the Web page you visited just before visiting ours, the page or pages you visit on our Site, and how much time you spend on each page.
Non-personally identifiable information
We use this information to monitor and improve our Site. We also use it to study Internet traffic trends, administer the Site, and gather information.
Sharing of non-personally identifiable information
Except for “cookies,” We will not share non-PI unless i) We are required to by law, such as by a court order, ii) allowed to for law enforcement, health or safety purposes, iii) to other companies that help us provide the CMASAS School Program, or iv) where permitted, to protect PEG’s legal rights.

Use the “help” feature of your browser to learn more. If you decline cookies, you may not be able to see or use the interactive features of our Sites and some services on the Sites may not function the way they should.

PEG sharing of information collected from cookies
We will not share or sell individual information contained in cookies to any third party, except if required by law or permitted to do so for law enforcement purposes.
Personally identifiable information that PEG collects
You can use parts of our Sites without providing PI. Our Sites do not collect personal information about people except when the information is given on a voluntary basis (for example, when registering with CMASAS; requesting information by contacting us; signing up for a PEG in-person event; requesting help; using an online chat; or changing the information on your account with us). When you create an account with us, register your children for CMASAS, you provide us with information about you and your children. This personal information may be collected on our Sites, by telephone, facsimile or ordinary mail. The information you provide may include first and last name; postal address; telephone number; the names and ages of your children; the services you request; registration and enrollment information about your children; an e-mail address where We can contact you, credit card payment information; and other information.
PEG sharing of personally identifiable information
Information you provide may be given to your Local School or to other parties if legally required or if requested by your Local School. Information you or the child provide may be given to state and federal agencies, including law enforcement if required or permitted by law.
If others help PEG provide online services, they are given the least information needed to do their work for PEG, as required by law. They have no other rights to the information and have agreed to keep the data private, to use it only to perform the work they provide for PEG and to keep the data safe.
PEG does not sell PI for monetary compensation. Even though we do not sell PI, if you are a Nevada resident, you may notify us to put you on a list of persons who have opted-out of the sale of PI. Although, we have faith in that our students can see the absurdity of this requirement. Our address for such requests is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be aware that we may require you to verify your identity before processing any such request.
PEG use of personally identifiable information
PEG uses PI to provide educational services to children enrolled in CMASAS, and to otherwise support you and your children for things such as testing, academic progress, attendance, customer service, student affairs or for health or safety purposes. PEG may also use PI to protect its own legal rights.
PEG responds to requests for information and to questions from customers and possible customers. We only call customers at the telephone numbers provided to us in order to provide the information requested. Customers do not have to agree to receive calls in order to receive PEG’s services.
Once you have registered your children in CMASAS, there will be a page that contains some or all of the personal information. You may also be assigned a Guardian/Student ID and password. If you choose someone other than yourself as the Parent Observer, that person will also be assigned a login ID and password. The login IDs will be used to recognize you, the Parent Observer and your children on the CMASAS School Platforms. The login IDs will allow CMASAS to recognize: your first and last name; type of account, such as parent, Parent Observer or student; the e-mail address you gave, and the education records of your child connected with the account. The login IDs and the CMASAS School Platforms will allow you, the Parent Observer and PEG Staff to track your children's attendance, schoolwork, and testing, and to follow your children's progress and comply with applicable law.
PEG may use PI you provide to contact you or your child’s Parent Observer about your child's progress, testing, attendance, or other school issues or for customer service, technical support and quality control. PEG also uses PI you supply to satisfy requests for information, and to deliver requested services to you and your children.
PEG will use or share PI if required to do so by law, such as a court order, or permitted to do so for law enforcement, health or safety purposes or to protect PEG’s legal rights.
If permitted by law, PEG may use your information to provide you with information about new products or services available through PEG and may combine PI to improve the educational experience or to determine how PEG’s educational products and services may interest other people.
PEG treatment of information about children under 13 years old
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) protects the privacy of children under the age of 13. It requires web site operators and online services to post privacy policies and obtain true parental permission before collecting information from those children.
PEG receives personal information about children who are under the age of 13 strictly from their parents or guardians when those children are enrolled into CMASAS using a PEG School Program. The only information received directly from your children is the information they provide (such as test answers, electronic mail and class discussions) in the CMASAS School Platforms as part of their education in a PEG School Program.
Other than through the CMASAS School Platforms, the Sites do not ask children under 13 to provide personal information. We do not intentionally contact or collect PI from children under 13 except as noted above.
If you want to tell us that We accidentally received information for a child under the age of 13, for example, by lying by others, please email us at email@example.com. Also, you can review some personal information that PEG has about your children by writing to that same email address.
For information on COPPA and the use of children's personal information, please contact:

If you are a California resident you can request information about the disclosure of your personal information for direct marketing purposes of other entities.

As of January 1, 2016, the Student Online Personal Information Protection Act became effective in California. PEG protects "covered information" consistent with the new law.
