Please read this Privacy Policy carefully.  The Site is offered and available to users who are 13 years of age or older and reside in the United States. Persons between the age of 13 and 18 (“Minors”) must obtain their parents’ or legal guardians’ consent prior to use of the Site. If you do not meet these requirements, you must not use the Site.  By accessing or using the Site in any manner, or by clicking or signing to accept or agree to this Privacy Policy, you (or your parent or legal guardian if you are a Minor) accept and agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use[A1]  (http://idahoptech.org/terms-of-use) , which are incorporated in this Privacy Policy by this reference. If you (or your parent or legal guardian if you are a Minor) do not agree to this Privacy Policy or our Terms of Use[A2]  (http://idahoptech.org/terms-of-use), do not use the Site.


We may collect personal information from you (and your parent or legal guardian if you are a Minor), meaning information about you that can uniquely identify you, such as your name, date of birth, address, phone number, and email address, if you choose to provide us with such information, including by submitting an application, subscribing to our newsletter, posting comments through the Site’s message boards, chat rooms, and other interactive features, and using the comments section of the “Contact Us” page on the Site. We may also collect information about you that does not uniquely identify you. Additionally, when you access the Site using a mobile device, we may collect and process real-time information about the location of your device. 

When you visit the Site, we may also collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. We may also use third-party website analytics tools (such as Google Analytics) that collect information about user traffic on the Site. The information we may collect by automated means may include but is not limited to the following:

  • information about the devices you use to access the Internet (such as the IP address and the type of the device, operating system, and web browser);
  • dates, times, and duration of visits to the Site (including whether you are a repeat or first time visitor); and
  • information on actions taken on the Site (such as page views and site navigation patterns).


The Site contains message boards, chat rooms, personal web pages or profiles, forums, bulletin boards, and other interactive features (collectively, “Interactive Services”) that allow users to post, submit, publish, display, or transmit to other users or third parties (generally described as “post”) content or materials (collectively, “User Content”) on or through the Site and permits you to submit to Idaho PTECH comments, suggestions, or other materials (together with User Content, “User Contributions”).

Your User Contributions are posted on and transmitted to others at your own risk.  Although we limit access to certain pages, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. Additionally, we cannot control the actions of other users of the Site with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your User Contributions will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.


Your web browser may let you choose your preference as to whether you want to allow websites to collect personal information over time about your online activities across different websites or online services.  At this time the Site does not respond to the preferences you may have set in your web browser regarding the collection of your information, and the Site may continue to collect information in the manner described in this Privacy Policy.
