Notice to California Residents for “Do Not Track” Requests

Instructify does not track visitor activity off of the site, and therefore has no software in place to respond to “Do Not Track” requests. However, if you need to be certain that you aren’t tracked across the web, you should not visit Instructify.

Third party ads and other third party software may use tracking methods such as cookies to track visitor movement across the web, but this is controlled specifically by the third party software/advertisments/cookies and not by Instructify. Again, if you need to be sure you aren’t tracked across the web, please do not visit Instructify.

Notice to California Residents pertaining to “Shine the Light” Inquiries

California Civil Code, specifically section 1798.83, defines a law called “Shine the Light.” This law allows website users who are California residents only to request and obtain, from us, once a year and free from any monetary charges, information about the types and categories of personal information (if any) we provide or disclose to third-parties for direct marketing purposes. This also includes the names and addresses of all third parties which we shared information with in the previous calendar year.

As mentioned in this Disclaimer and Privacy Policy, there are limited circumstances under which we may collect and share what could be considered personally identifiable information; however, there may be exceptions to this as well (such as security purposes and other reasons).

Because of this and our desire for compliance and transparency, please feel free to contact us via email at contact[at]instructify[dot]com to submit a Shine the Light request.

Notice to California Residents pertaining to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

Effective January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) governs a variety of behaviors related to businesses that interact with California consumers.

As part of the CCPA, there are a variety of stipulations and qualifying tests that determine whether or not a particular business is required to adhere to the rules and tenets of the CCPA.

After conducting a thorough evaluation of website statistics and other factors, we determined that Instructify.com and it’s parent company, owner(s), and other parties materially connected to the site do not meet the criteria for formal adherence to the rules and confines of the CCPA, and therefore do not have formal channels for requesting or limiting personal information as defined under the CCPA.

With that said, just because we don’t meet the threshold for formal adherence doesn’t mean that we don’t care about user privacy—we absolutely do and work hard to be as transparent with visitors and users as possible, and to adhere to all rules and regulations with complete compliance.

And because we care about visitors and respect regulations, we are always available to receive feedback and questions related to user privacy. If you have any questions or privacy concerns, please contact us via email at contact[at]instructify[dot]com and we will do our 100% best to help you with any privacy concerns you may have.

Important Information for EU Residents Relating to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The web servers that host Instructify.com, along with some of the software used to run the site (like Clicky Web Analytics), does log IP addresses which are absolutely necessary to maintain the security of the website, web server, the site itself, and to detect, prevent, and deter malicious online activity.

Recital 49 of the GDPR clearly states that “the processing of personal data to the extent strictly necessary and proportionate for the purposes of ensuring network and information security, i.e. the ability of a network or an information system to resist, at a given level of confidence, accidental or unlawful or malicious actions…” is permissible.

Simply put, we have to log IP addresses to protect Instructify.com and the web servers against different types of bad actors and hackers who aim to do harm on the Internet. Each day, malicious bots try and do many different things to steal bandwidth, content, images, compromise the server, etc., and we (and most other websites online) have to log IP addresses to detect, stop, and prevent this type of activity. We want to be clear—we do not sell, trade, or give this information or data to any third parties, with the exception of those trusted third parties (like our web hosting company) who are necessary to help us achieve this level of safety and security. It’s also important to note that the information stored on our servers is password-protected and sent over a SSL-encrypted, secure connection.

In addition to logging and recording IP addresses for security purposes, we also collect this information about every visitor for our own records in case it’s ever necessary to disclose this information to law enforcement (such as in the event of a data breach).

We want to be upfront and honest about our logging of IP addresses, even though it’s a very common, almost ubiquitous security practice. If for some reason you’d like your IP address (which cannot be used by anyone but law enforcement or your ISP to identify you), please send us an email at contact[at]instructify[dot]com and we’ll remove it from our logs.
