How long we retain your data

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

We are committed to maintaining the privacy of children’s personal information, ensuring the safety of their online experiences, and protecting their images and likeness. This Privacy and Protection Clause outlines our policies regarding video recordings and the protection of children’s images and likeness on our website:

  1. Video Recordings:
    • We may occasionally utilize video recordings for educational purposes or to enhance the learning experience for our students. These recordings are strictly for internal use and will not be shared publicly or with any third parties without explicit consent from the parents or legal guardians of the children involved.

    • Images or likeness of children participating in our homeschooling activities, events, or classes may be captured for educational or promotional purposes.
    • Prior to using any images or likeness of children, we will seek explicit consent from their parents or legal guardians. Parents or legal guardians have the right to refuse consent for the use of their child’s images or likeness for promotional purposes.
    • We are committed to ensuring that children’s identities are protected. Therefore, we will not publicly disclose any personally identifiable information along with the images or likeness of children without parental consent.
  3. Data Security:
    • We maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures to safeguard against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction of any personal information we collect, including video recordings and images of children.
    • Our staff undergoes regular training on data protection and privacy practices to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations, including the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
  4. Parental Control and Consent:
    • Parents or legal guardians have the right to review, update, or request deletion of their child’s personal information, including video recordings and images, by contacting BTG Homeschoolers administration.
    • We encourage parents or legal guardians to actively supervise their child’s online activities and to communicate with them about privacy and safety practices.
