For example, an individual may send an email (through a mailer or a web form) to request information or sign up for a mailing list. Any personally identifiable information transmitted to GoSchool will be used only for the purpose indicated. Requests for information will be directed to the appropriate staff to respond to the request and may be recorded to help GoSchool update the Website to better respond to similar requests.

GoSchool does so by using secure technology, privacy protection controls, and restrictions on employee access. Due to the nature of electronic communications, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure.
