St Pius X School is committed to protecting your privacy. Please read the St Pius X School Online Privacy Statement below for further details about the St Pius X School site and services that you may use.
This St Pius X School Online Privacy Statement applies to data collected by St Pius X School through the Web sites and services that display these terms, as well as its offline product support services. It does not apply to those St Pius X School sites, services and products that do not display or link to this statement or that have their own privacy statements. Some products, services or features mentioned in this statement may not be available in all markets at this time.
Collection of Your Personal Information
At the St Pius X School site, we may ask you to provide personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address, or telephone number.
In order to access some St Pius X School services, you may be asked to sign in with an e-mail address and password. If you access our services via a mobile phone, you may also use your telephone number and a PIN as an alternative credential to your username and password. As part of creating your credentials, you may also be requested to provide questions and secret answers, which we use to help verify your identity and assist in resetting your password, as well as an alternate e-mail address. Some services may require added security, and in these cases, you may be asked to create an additional security key. Finally, a unique ID number will be assigned to your credentials which will be used to identify your credentials and associated information.
We collect additional information about your interaction with St Pius X School sites and services without identifying you as an individual. For example, we use Web site analytics tools on our sites to retrieve information from your browser, including the site you came from, the search engine(s) and the keywords you used to find our site, the pages you view within our site, your browser add-ons, and your browser’s width and height. We also use technologies, such as cookies and web beacons (described below), to collect information about the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on our sites and services. Additionally, we receive certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring Web site addresses. We also deliver advertisements (see the Display of Advertising section below) and provide Web site analytics tools on non-St Pius X School sites and services, and we collect information about page views on these third party sites as well.
When you receive newsletters or promotional e-mail from St Pius X School, we may use web beacons (described below), customized links or similar technologies to determine whether the e-mail has been opened and which links you click in order to provide you more focused e-mail communications or other information.
In order to offer you a more consistent and personalized experience in your interactions with St Pius X School, information collected through one St Pius X School service may be combined with information obtained through other St Pius X School services. We may also supplement the information we collect with information obtained from other companies. For example, we may use services from other companies that enable us to derive a general geographic area based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your geographic area.
Use of Your Personal Information
St Pius X School may collect and use your personal information to operate and improve its sites and services. These uses may include providing you with more effective customer service; making the sites or services easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products, services and technologies; and displaying content and advertising that are customized to your interests and preferences.
We also use your personal information to communicate with you.
Additionally, with your permission, we may also occasionally send you product surveys or promotional mailings to inform you of other products or services available from St Pius X School and its affiliates, information about other St Pius X School products and services, and/or share your personal information with St Pius X School partners so they may send you information about their products and services.
Personal information collected on St Pius X School sites and services may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which St Pius X School or its affiliates, subsidiaries or service providers maintain facilities. St Pius X School abides by the safe harbor framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union, the European Economic Area, and Switzerland.
Sharing of Your Personal Information
Except as described in this statement, we will not disclose your personal information outside of St Pius X School and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your consent. Some St Pius X School sites allow you to choose to share your personal information with select St Pius X School partners so that they can contact you about their products, services or offers.
Some St Pius X School services are co-branded by St Pius X School and another company. In some cases, both a St Pius X School privacy statement and the other company’s privacy statement will be displayed. If so, information you provide, such as on registration forms, is collected by both St Pius X School and the other company.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, hosting websites, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. Those service providers will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose than for delivering the service to St Pius X School in accordance with St Pius X School’s instructions and policies. However, for credit card processing, our fraud detection vendors may use aggregate data to help improve their service. This helps them more accurately detect fraudulent uses of credit cards. We may access or disclose information about you, including the content of your communications, in order to: (a) comply with the law or respond to lawful requests or legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of St Pius X School or our customers, including the enforcement of our agreements or policies governing your use of the services; or (c) act on a good faith belief that such access or disclosure is necessary to protect the personal safety of St Pius X School employees, customers or the public. We may also disclose personal information as part of a corporate transaction such as a merger or sale of assets.
You can stop the delivery of future promotional e-mail from St Pius X School sites and services by following the specific instructions in the e-mail you receive.
Security of Your Personal Information
St Pius X School is committed to protecting the security of your personal information and information collected for school purposes. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number or password) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
If a password is used to help protect your accounts and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.
St Pius X School Web sites may use “cookies” to enable you to sign in to our services and to help personalize your online experience. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies contain information that can later be read by a Web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to store your preferences and other information on your computer in order to save you time by eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same information and to display your personalized content and appropriate advertising on your later visits to these sites.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use other interactive features of St Pius X School sites and services that depend on cookies, and some advertising preferences that are dependent on cookies may not be able to be respected.
If you choose to accept cookies, you also have the ability to later delete cookies that you have accepted. In Internet Explorer 8, you can delete cookies by selecting “Tools”, “Delete browsing history”. Then select the control box “Cookies” and click the “Delete” button.

Use of Web Beacons
St Pius X School Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons – sometimes called single-pixel gifs – that may be used to assist in delivering cookies on our sites and allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. We may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or our newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.
St Pius X School may also employ Web beacons from third parties in order to help us compile aggregated statistics regarding the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns or other operations of our sites. We prohibit Web beacons on our sites from being used by third parties to collect or access your personal information.
Finally, we may work with other companies that advertise on St Pius X School sites to place Web beacons on their sites in order to allow us to develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement on a St Pius X School site results in a purchase or other action on the advertiser’s site.
