As new email publications are developed, users may be sent an invitation to subscribe.

From time to time, we may use blog comments and commenter information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future, we will post the policy changes to our Website to notify you of these changes and we will use for these new purposes only data collected from the time of the policy change forward.

Use of cookies
Cookies are pieces of information that are stored on your computer and are used for record keeping purposes.

Learning Matters’ member section and newsletter system requires a password to access the membership and subscription management pages. For the convenience of users, Learning Matters offers the opportunity to be “remembered,” by the system so a password is only required on the first access. Asking to be “remembered” by clicking the “remember me” or similar dialog box when asked places a permanent cookie on the user’s machine. Learning Matters’s system never places a permanent cookie on the users machine unless a user specifically makes this request.

Links to Other Sites
Learning Matters’ website(s) provides links to several other third party websites. While we make efforts to choose our links carefully, we cannot take any responsibility for the content of linked websites, or for the privacy policies of websites we link to. Since we do not control these websites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on these third party websites prior to any use.

Privacy Policy Changes
We may amend this privacy policy from time to time. Your continued use of our websites after the date that such notices are posted will be deemed to be your agreement to the changed terms.

If you have any questions or concerns about our Privacy Policy or its implementation, or you wish you may contact us using the contact information on the Contact Us page.
