In common with other websites, log files are stored on the web server saving details such as the visitor's IP address, browser type, referring page and time of visit. Cookies may be used to remember visitor preferences when interacting with the Website. Web beacons, a small snippet of code that allows the transfer of information collected through a graphic image request, may be contained in our web pages and HTML emails. Similar to cookies, web beacons are generally used to compile statistics, possibly by a third party, to analyze how a website is used and optimize the user experience on the Website. Where registration is required, select user information including but not limited to the visitor's email and a username will be stored on the server.

We will never sell or rent your personal information to anyone without your advance permission or unless ordered by a court of law.

By registering as an instructor on ConnectLAX, you authorize ConnectLAX to verify the information you provide and share your personal information in connection with such verification, which may include, without limitation, conducting criminal background and motor vehicle records checks, sex offender registry screens, identification verifications and/or use of available public records (collectively, “Background Checks”). You consent to any collection, use or disclosure in order to accomplish such verification. Without limiting any other provision of this Privacy Policy, Terms of Use, which can be found on the following link, ConnectLAX.com/terms or Instructor Agreement and Guidelines, can be found at the following link, ConnectLAX.com/instructoragreement, we may share (and you expressly authorize us to share), the results of the Background Checks with any other Website user or Member who has requested this information as a result of their use of our Website or specifically by engaging to receive instruction services from you. Background Checks are from third party agencies; ConnectLAX is not responsible and expressly disclaims all responsibility and liability relating to or arising out of any Background Check, including but not limited to the receipt, misuse or disclosure of its results, and the services of any third party agencies. You reserve the right to not grant or rescind permission for Background Checks, which may result in immediate removal from the Website.

 

We may disclose your information to any relevant regulatory body when there is a legal obligation to do so or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or the safety of you and others.

How Secure is Your Personal Information?

 

ConnectLAX strives to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input online.

ConnectLAX processes all debit and credit card transactions through a fully secured and highly reputable third party payment processor and does not store debit or credit card information on our systems or servers. We encourage you to take precautions by protecting against unauthorized access to your password and computer as well as being sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
