Collection of your Personal Information
At some sites, The Orion Online Learning Company collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. At other sites, anonymous demographic information is collected, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, and preferences. Some sites collect a combination of the two types of information. Information collected at one University Web site may be shared within the Orion Online Learning Company family of Web sites.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through The Orion Online Learning Company Chats, Communities, or other public online forums, this information may be collected and used by others. Your use of The Orion Online Learning Company Chat conversations, messages, e-mails, and Web Site Accesses are completely confidential.
Orion High School encourages you to review the privacy statements of other Web sites that you visit so that you can understand how those sites collect, use and share your information. If you choose to follow links from The Orion Online Learning Company Web pages to other “external” Web domains, please note that The Orion Online Learning Company is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on sites other than those within the The Orion Online Learning Company family of web sites.
There may also be information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by Orion High School and may be shared with other Web sites within the Orion Online Learning Company family of web sites. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of The Orion Online Learning Company Web sites.
Use of your Personal Information
The Orion Online Learning Company Web sites and their operational service partners collect and use your personal information to operate University Web sites and deliver the services you have requested. University sites also use your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from The Orion Online Learning Company and its affiliates. The Orion Online Learning Company may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
Orion High School does not sell, rent or lease its lead, applicant, Learner, or mentor lists to third parties. The Orion Online Learning Company may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, The Orion Online Learning Company may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to The Orion Online Learning Company, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Many of the Orion High School Web sites use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Orion High School's pages, or register with University sites or services, a cookie helps The Orion Online Learning Company to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same The Orion Online Learning Company Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Orion Online Learning Company services or Web sites you visit.
Use of Web Beacons
Orion High School Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons - sometimes called single-pixel gifs - that allow The Orion Online Learning Company to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. The Orion Online Learning Company may include web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or University Newsletters in order to count how many messages have been opened and acted upon. Web beacons are not used to access your personally identifiable information on the Orion Online Learning Company network of sites and services; they are a technique use to compile aggregated statistics about University Web site usage.
Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides. Orion High School Web pages may also contain Web beacons placed there by our advertising partner, Avenue A, to help The Orion Online Learning Company determine the effectiveness of our Internet advertising campaigns.

You may also stop the delivery of future promotional e-mail from Orion High School Web sites by following the specific instructions in the e-mail you receive. The instructions explain how to stop receiving such e-mails.
