Design-your-homeschool.com collects personally identifiable information from the visitors to our website only on a voluntary basis. Personal information collected on a voluntary basis may include name, postal address, email address, company name and telephone number. This information is collected if you request information from us, participate in a contest, add to the homeschool gallery (it is optional to add author's details), sign up to join our email list or request some other service or information from us. The information collected is internally reviewed, used to improve the content of our website, notify our visitors of updates, and respond to visitor inquiries. Once information is reviewed, it is discarded or stored in our files. If we make material changes in the collection of personally identifiable information we will inform you by placing a notice on our site. Personal information received from any visitor will be used only for internal purposes and will not be sold or provided to third parties.

A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single website or collection of sites. They are also referred to as web bugs and are commonly used by sites that hire third-party services to monitor traffic. They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of a web site.
Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being sent. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions shouldn't cause a problem with our site, should you so choose.
This website is directed to adults; it is not directed to children under the age of 13. We operate our site in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, and will not knowingly collect or use personal information from anyone under 13 years of age. Children who add to the Homeschool Gallery must do so with parental consent and adding an author name to any gallery (kids gallery or any other) is always optional.
In some cases, we may collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. The information collected is used solely for internal review and not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.
If design-your-homeschool.com is sold, the information we have obtained from you through your voluntary participation in our site may transfer to the new owner as a part of the sale in order that the service being provided to you may continue. In that event, you will receive notice through our website of that change in control and practices, and we will make reasonable efforts to ensure that the purchaser honors any opt-out requests you might make of us.
Please Note: Website owners often make part of their income by affiliate links, so when you click through a website and buy a book, the website owner receives a small commission.
I take Book Recommendations seriously and so you will not find all homeschooling resources on my site. The books and curriculum which I recommend are those which I have either had first hand experience with (used and are on my bookshelf), what we are hoping to use, or what has been highly recommended from others.
I do receive commissions from some of the book shops on my site and from some curriculum providers so if you have enjoyed the content on my site and my book recommendations, feel free to buy any or all of your homeschooling resources though the links and search boxes so that I may continue to provide this free homeschooling online resource. Thank you.
