The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a Federal law, requires that a School or School District, with certain exceptions, obtain the written consent of a Parent/Guardian prior to the disclosure of personally identifiable information from a child’s education records. However, such School or School District may disclose appropriately designated “directory information” without written consent, unless you have advised the School or School District to the contrary in accordance with the School or School District’s procedures. The primary purpose of directory information is to allow the School or School District to include information from your child’s education records for certain school purposes.
Directory information, which is information that is generally not considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if released, can also be disclosed to outside organizations without a parent’s prior written consent. The Services of Chicago Community Management INC include the ability of educational institutions to upload directory information as a means of creating profiles for its students.
If you are a Parent or Guardian and you do not want your child’s School or School District to disclose any or all of the types of information designated below as directory information from your child’s education records without your prior written consent, you must notify the School or School District in writing. The following is a non-exhaustive list of directory information:
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and its rules (collectively, "COPPA") require Us to inform parents and legal guardians (as used in this section, "parents") about our practices for collecting, using, and disclosing personal information from children under the age of 13 ("children"), if such collection does not fall within an exception to the Act. It also requires us to obtain verifiable consent from a child's parent for certain collection, use, and disclosure of the child's personal information.
In most cases, Chicago Community Management INC will work through educational institutions for any collection of information pertaining to children under the age of 13. Such collection will, at all times, be done in accordance with applicable Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regulations. In the event that any child under the age of 13 actively uses the Website, the privacy terms in this section will apply.
This section notifies parents of:
Children can access many parts of the Service and its content and use many of its features without providing us with personal information. However, to leverage the full capabilities of the Service requires us to collect certain information, including personal information, from them, if such information has not already been rendered by his or her school. In addition, we use certain technologies, such as cookies, to automatically collect information from our users (including children) when they visit or use the Service.
We only collect as much information about a child as is reasonably necessary, and we do not condition his or her participation on the disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary.

We specify whether information is required or optional when we request it.
We enable registered users to communicate with others on or through this Website through email and posting to public areas of the Service ("Social Features"). The nature of these features allows children to disclose personal information about themselves. We do not monitor or review this content before it is posted, and we do not control the actions of third parties with whom your child shares his or her information. We encourage parents to educate their children about safe internet use and to monitor their children's use of social features.
Automatic Information Collection and Tracking. We use technology to automatically collect information from our users, including children, when they access and navigate through the Website and use certain of its features. The information we collect through these technologies may include:

In addition, if Chicago Community Management INC is involved in a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of its assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding or event, we may transfer the personal information we have collected or maintain to the buyer or other successor.
Social Features. The Service offers social features, including email and, in some cases, posting on message boards, that enable children to communicate with others on or through the Website. We do not control the types of information your child can send or post through them. We encourage parents to educate their children about safety online and to carefully monitor their children's use of social features to ensure they do not disclose their personal information through them.
At any time, you may review the child's personal information maintained by us, require us to correct or delete the personal information, and/or refuse to permit us from further collecting or using the child's information.
