How Does WriteBoston Share My Personal Information?
We disclose information that we collect through the Websites to third parties in the following circumstances:
Third Party Service
Updating Your Information
Students who wish to have their work taken off the site, and other members of the Write Boston/Teens in Print community who wish to have their information deleted from our servers, should contact us via the “Contact Us” page of the relevant site.
We take measures to delete your Personal Information or keep it in a form that does not allow you to be identified when this information is no longer necessary for the purposes for which we process it, unless we are required by law to keep this information for a longer period. When determining the retention period, we take into account various criteria, such as the type of services requested by or provided to you, the nature and length of our relationship with you, possible re-enrollment with our services, the impact on the services we provide to you if we delete some information from or about you, mandatory retention periods provided by law and the statute of limitations.
How Does WriteBoston protect my personal information?
WriteBoston has in place administrative, physical, and technical procedures that are intended to protect the information we collect on the Sites against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse, and any other unlawful form of processing of the Personal Information in our possession. For example, we use SSL/TLS for all data transfer and strictly limit access to the WriteBoston servers and the data we store on them. However, as effective as these measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot completely guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. WriteBoston also makes use of third party websites, as described above. We are not responsible for the privacy, information, or other practices of any third parties.
International Cross-Border Data Transfer
WriteBoston is based in the United States. Personal Information that we collect may be transferred to, and stored at, any of our affiliates, partners, or service providers which may be inside or outside the European Economic Area, including the United States. By submitting your personal data, you agree to such transfers.
