3. How we share information

The email list we maintain is for internal use only and will not be sold or conveyed to any party outside of Terra Education. Further, we do not exchange Email lists with any other company. With respect to Ad Servers: We do not partner with or have special relationships with any ad server companies. We will only share email addresses as required by law.

We do not share any personal information about our students or their families with anyone external to Terra Education, Inc., unless required by law or to activate the travel medical insurance included in the volunteer program. Once enrolled, you have the option of allowing us to share your contact information with other enrolled students and their families.

4. How we protect information

We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site. All information is kept in locked files or electronic files that are password protected and whose access rights are restricted to only those SSB staff members who have a need to know.

All confidential information (such as credit card numbers) on our website is sent using the Internet security protocol known as “Secure Sockets Layer” or “SSL.” This is a certification and encryption technology designed to make using your credit card as safe as possible on the Internet. No one at SSB has access to your entire credit card number, only the last four digits for identification purposes.

5. Former participants

We do not share personal information about our former participants with anyone unless explicitly agreed upon by the student or their parents (if the student is under 18 years of age). An exception to this policy would be information disclosures required by law, e.g. a subpoena.

We do not share information about our former participants with companies outside of our organization that may use the information for their own marketing purposes.
