We want you to feel confident in this relationship. In this light, we are committed to ensuring that while you are visiting our web site, you feel that the information you share is safe and secure to the fullest extent possible.
Our Commitment To Privacy
Information Collected By FamilyIQ
When you visit our web site you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and web site useage collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our web site.
Personal Information You Choose To Provide
In order to experience the full benefit that FamilyIQ offers such as FamilyIQ courses, premium content, tools and services, we ask you to register to become a member. During this member registration process, we will ask you for personally identifiable information such as your name, email address, mailing address, zip code, country, and marital status, etc…
FamilyIQ uses the information it gathers for several purposes, such as to understand more about our audience's interests, to communicate with you and to give you a better experience when using and visiting FamilyIQ by personalizing content, courses, services and email messages (more details below.) FamilyIQ also uses this information to offer new courses, content and services, as well as developing offers that FamilyIQ believes are more relevant and valuable to you.
Web Site Information
When you visit FamilyIQ and interact with the services and tools that reside there, FamilyIQ and third parties with whom FamilyIQ has contracted to provide services to FamilyIQ may collect information on your actions. FamilyIQ utilizes a standard technology called "cookies" and your IP address to collect information about how FamilyIQ is used. Information gathered through cookies and your IP address may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our web site, and the web sites visited just before and just after our web site. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual.
INFORMATION COLLECTED BY FAMILYIQ THROUGH COOKIES AND IP ADDRESS
• save your password so you don't have to re-enter it each time you visit our site
• deliver content specific to your interests
• track your progress within a course
• track the pages you've visited
These cookies allow us to use the information we collect to customize your FamilyIQ experience so that your visit to FamilyIQ is as relevant and as valuable to you as possible.
You may modify your browser preference to provide you with choices relating to cookies. You have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject cookies you may be unable to use those FamilyIQ services that require registration in order to participate or will have to login each time you visit FamilyIQ.
Your IP address is a number that is assigned by your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to your computer to identify its location. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our web site. We also sometimes use IP addresses to communicate with members and subscribers and possibly even ban those members who are not complying with our Terms of Service.
Use of Information
The majority of information collected by FamilyIQ is used to create aggregated portraits of the FamilyIQ audience, portraits which present anonymous statistical demographic information. This aggregated information is used, among other things, to determine trends and needs, and also to supply market research to potential advertisers and partners to help them understand who the FamilyIQ audience is. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our web site, new services and special offers we think you will find valuable.
Due to the personal nature of much of the content and services of the site, the information you have provided may be used to help guide to you content, courses, services and products that may server to provide you with a more fulfilling experience while visiting FamilyIQ.
Many areas of FamilyIQ are reserved for FamilyIQ members only who have registered with us.
How We Protect and Secure Your Information
FamilyIQ has numerous security measures in place to protect you from the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control, including your personal information, course results, personal learning plans, and credit card information. All of your member information requires use of your password. We recommend that you do not share your password with anyone.
FamilyIQ utilizes encryption/security software to safeguard the confidentiality of personal information we collect from unauthorized access or disclosure and accidental loss, alteration or destruction.
Evaluation of Information Protection Practices. Periodically, our operations and business practices are reviewed for compliance with corporate policies and procedures governing the security, confidentiality and quality of our information.
Employee Access, Training and Expectations. Our corporate values, ethical standards, policies and practices are committed to the protection of customer information. Our business practices limit employee access to confidential information, and limit the use and disclosure of such information to authorized persons, processes and transactions.

Notice of New Services and Changes
Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to FamilyIQ, new services and special offers we think you will find valuable. You will be given the opportunity to notify us of your desire not to receive these offers by clicking on a response box when you receive such an offer or by sending us an email request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Order Forms and Transaction with E-Commerce Partners
The information provided via the order forms in the FamilyIQ online store is secured via SSL Encryption. The information provided in that order form, as well as the items ordered, will only be shared with the designated fulfillment partner to the extent the information is needed to successfully complete the order and they may not use this information for any other purpose.
E-learning/Course Progress and Results
As a member of FamilyIQ, you will be able to participate in the e-learning and course programs. These programs include taking tests to help measure your progress throughout the course. The results of these tests are stored as part of your member profile and treated with the same level of privacy and security as the rest of your personal data.
Electronic Newsletters and Reminders
FamilyIQ offers free and registered member electronic newsletters on a variety of topics. If you choose to subscribe to any of these newsletters, currently the only information you will be required to provide is a valid email address. Generally, FamilyIQ does not share mailing lists from its electronic newsletters with third parties.
Blogs/Forums and Message Boards
Throughout FamilyIQ, various public forums such as the message boards and question and answer areas are available to you as a registered FamilyIQ member.
Please remember that any information you disclose in these public forum and blog areas becomes public information and is immediately accessible on FamilyIQ, so it is important for you to exercise discretion and appropriate caution when deciding to reveal personal information in these areas. FamilyIQ may decide to utilize in promotions the content of Q&A's, course comments or site comments to enhance FamilyIQ's editorial, advertising and public relations efforts.
Survey and Polls
Our surveys ask for opinions on various issues and very often these surveys and polls are sponsored by or associated with FamilyIQ and partners. Occasionally, we may request demographic information (like zip code, age or gender). Most information obtained through surveys and polls is aggregated and used internally or shared with our partners only in the aggregated form. In the event personally identifiable information is requested as part of surveys or polls about any FamilyIQ member or subscriber, such personally identifiable information is never provided to third parties without your consent. In these instances you may expressly choose to receive information from a sponsor, in which case your information is provided to that sponsor only. Some survey answers may be added to your member profile (so that we can better provide you with content and offers that are most appropriate for you.)
FamilyIQ Opt-In/Opt-Out Policy
Upon registration or from time-to-time, you may be asked to indicate whether you are interested in receiving information from us about special offers or news about our sites and advertisers. You will also be provided with the opportunity to opt-in to receive offers directly from select companies other than FamilyIQ. If you do choose to receive these communications by means of an opt-in, we will occasionally send you an email message that matches your request(s). You may, of course, always choose not to receive any of this information from us. We currently provide the following opt-out opportunities:
Upon registration, you can choose to receive only membership information emails.
At any time, you can follow a link provided in every newsletter or email message (except for e-commerce confirmation emails) to unsubscribe from that mailing list or email service.
At any time, you can contact us through email@example.com to have your contact preference changed to "Do Not Contact Me."
FamilyIQ provides you with the ability to access, correct or change certain information in your member registration profile at any time, including contact information or other information you've provided to us. However, you cannot currently change your member name, although you may re-register and choose a new name. Please be advised that FamilyIQ currently archives information it collects on its members and visitors.
We value your opinions. If you have comments or questions about our privacy statement or anything else about FamilyIQ, you can contact us at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at the following address:
