This policy explains the what, how, and why of the information we collect when you use reliefteaching.com It also explains the specific ways we use and disclose that information.
We never sell or give away lists or email addresses to ANYONE or ANYTHING.
Let’s get a few definitions out of the way.
When we say “we,” “us,” and “reliefteaching.com” we’re referring to a section of bobbrandis.com group of websites.
When we say “you” or “Member,” we’re referring to the person or entity that’s registered with us to use the Services.
We provide online platforms. In the course of providing the Services, we may collect Personal Information, which means information about a Member.

5. Information We Collect
Cookies: When you register to use reliefteaching.com, we store “cookies,” which are strings of code, on your computer. We use those cookies to collect information about when you visit our Website, when you use the Services, your browser type and version, your operating system, and other similar information. You may turn off cookies that have been placed on your computer by following the instructions on your browser, but if you block our cookies, it may be more difficult (and maybe even impossible) to use all of these Services. When you play one of the videos on the Websites, the Flash player may use local shared objects, which are also called Flash cookies. We don’t use these Flash cookies for anything, but we can’t stop the player from dropping them (we tried).
Web Beacons: When we send emails to registered customers, we’ll sometimes track who opened the emails and who clicked the links. We do that to measure our Email Campaigns’ performance and to improve our features for specific segments of customers. To do this, we include single pixel gifs, also called web beacons, in emails we send. Web beacons allow us to collect information about when you open the email, your IP address, your browser or email client type, and other similar details. We also include Web Beacons in the emails we deliver for you. We use the data from those Web Beacons to create the reports you see about who has or hasn’t opened emails or clicked links. Reports are also available to us when we send you email, so we may collect and review that information.
Cookie management tools from your browser won’t remove Flash cookies, but here’s how to manage privacy settings for them.
Supplemental Member Information
We use this “Supplemental Member Information” to develop features like Social Pro, a tool that helps learn about your subscribers and send them more relevant content.

10. Notice of Breach of Security
Nobody’s safe from hackers. If a security breach causes an unauthorized intrusion into our system that materially affects you or people on your Distribution Lists, then reliefteaching.com will notify you as soon as possible and later report the action we took in response.
11. Safeguarding Your Information
Our log in protocols require a username and password to log in. You must keep your username and password secure, and never disclose it to a third party. Account passwords are encrypted, which means we can’t see your passwords. We can’t resend forgotten passwords either. We’ll only reset them.
13. Accuracy of Data, Transparency, and Choice
We do our best to keep your data accurate and up to date, to the extent that you provide us with the information we need to do that. If your data changes (like a new email address), then you’re responsible for notifying us of those changes.
We’ll give you access to any Personal Information about you that we hold within 30 days of any request for that information you make by emailing email@example.com. Unless it’s prohibited by law, we’ll remove any Personal Information about you from our servers at your request.
