Login and Password:
Every user on the PTA website is assigned a login (their selected email) and password (chosen by the user). Each password is encrypted in the web hosting provider’s database and is not visible to any PTA website users including Super Admin. Each user may change his/her own login and password as desired. Super Admin does not have the ability to change user logins or reset passwords.
Users of the PTA website can enter and edit personal information such as email, phone, and address. Users are also able to edit the personal information of members of their families. Super Admin has the ability to change or delete user data and remove user accounts.
Online Use of Student Names and Photos:
Our PTA online policy prohibits the display of students’ full names and/or the display of student photos. For names, the PTA will use the student's first name followed by a single initial for the last name, e.g. "Jane D." For photos, permissible exceptions are those which do not show students' faces (e.g. taken from the back) or photos in which the students' faces are too small for identification even when the photo is digitally enlarged.
The purpose of this policy is to protect the privacy of our students and their families. This policy extends to all forms of online posting for PTA-sponsored programs and events and includes, but is not limited to, the PTA website, auction websites, online surveys, etc. Students' full names and/or photos may be used with express written permission from a student's parent or legal guardian. This authorization must be submitted to the PTA president and the PTA web admin and will be stored in our PTA records.
The student directory is a restricted resource on the PTA website only for PTA members who are confirmed families at Sunrise Valley. Personal information, including name and email, is visible to all other PTA website users who are also PTA members. This information can be limited by each user through the process of concealing data within the student directory or removing data permanently from the user account. Super Admin can remove data upon request. Most display options are manageable by the individual user.
Information Collection and Sharing
When you provide your name, email, phone numbers, address, and student information, the PTA may use this information to contact you about orders you have made, registration for your student, or volunteer opportunities you have signed up for.
The PTA does not share your information with outside vendors without your express permission.
The PTA does not share your information with Room Parents or Teachers. You must join your student’s teacher’s classroom in order to be included in Amazing Earth and GREAT Art communication.
Scholarship requests are highly confidential. Only the treasurer and the school counselor have information about families that request financial aid. Super Admin does not have access to personal financial information about any Sunrise Valley families except for actual purchases made through the website.
