Disclosure of Your Information
When the information we collect about you is aggregated, anonymized, or otherwise does not identify you, we may use that information for any purpose or share it with third parties, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
In addition, we may share your information with the following entities:
- Business units within Vanco and to any companies owned by or under common ownership with Vanco. These companies may use your personal information in the same manner as we can under this Policy.
- Service providers and third-party vendors that we use to support our business, including companies that perform work necessary for us to provide products and services to you or your company, or that assist us in improving our business operations and the products and services we provide.
- Religious Organizations that you select or to which you donate money using our Services. We share some of your information with those Organizations in order to allow them to communicate with you.

- Other parties for any purpose we disclose at the time you provide the information.
We reserve the right to disclose your information as necessary to enforce our Terms of Service or comply with a subpoena or investigative demand, court order, request for cooperation from law enforcement or other governmental agency, to exercise our legal rights, to defend against legal claims, or as otherwise required by law.
Your Choices About Collection and Use of Your Information
We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. To the extent we ever send you non-Service emails, you can stop receiving those emails by clicking the “unsubscribe link” in the email. We endeavor to promptly process any unsubscribe requests. You may not, however, opt out of the Service-related emails, as described above.
Further, Organizations and users of our Services have the ability to review, correct, and delete personal information that they have provided by accessing and updating that information through the Services. While Organizations should be handling correction and deletion requests for their users directly, they may contact Vanco directly to do so. If you have questions about reviewing or modifying your account information, you can contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also choose not to provide us with certain information requested through our website, but that may result in you being unable to use certain features of our Services.
Links to Third-Party Websites
Our website may contain links to third-party websites and in certain situations you may be transferred to a third-party website but it may appear that you are still on this Site. These websites have separate privacy policies that you should review. While we make efforts to choose the links on our website carefully, we cannot take responsibility for the content of linked websites or those companies’ data-handling practices.
Protection and Storage of Your Information
We understand the importance of safeguarding your information and take appropriate administrative, technical, and physical measures to protect your personal information from loss, theft, and unauthorized use, disclosure, or modification. Please be aware, however, that no security measures or data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warranty the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.
Please note that we may store and process your information in the United States. The United states may have laws regarding data collection and use that are different from, or less stringent than, the laws in your home country.
Vanco is located in the United States. Our website and its Services are intended for use by individuals and Organizations in the United States and Canada. We do not seek personal information about individuals outside the United States and Canada. Accordingly, our collection of personal information and other data through our website and subsequent use and disclosure of that data is subject only to the laws of the United States and Canada, as applicable.
Vanco does not knowingly collect or solicit information from children under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register as users for its Services. While Vanco may receive certain information for children under 13 that a parent or Organization provides through our Services, the Services are not directed at children under that age. In registering for Services, Organizations, parents, and other users are required to certify that they will not permit or request that children under 13 submit information to the Service directly without adult supervision.
Please note that, in order to use some of our Services, the user may need access to an ID number issued by the Organization offering the Service. Certain of our Services may include options that allow you to enter an email address or phone number that is shared with teachers, administrators, or other individuals affiliated with the Organization. By entering that information, you are authorizing them to contact you or your student.
Vanco maintains separate policies and procedures relating to children’s privacy. Please contact Vanco at email@example.com for more information.
