PRIVACY POLICY

Our Commitment To Your Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. We know that privacy is an important issue for our Members and other users, and we take very seriously the protection of personal information. We provide this Privacy Policy to assist you in understanding how we collect and use the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our Site and our products and services. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

This Readers Theater All Year.com website (the "Site") is operated by Readers Theater All Year, LLC (“Readers Theater All Year”).  Within this Privacy Policy, "Readers Theater All Year" and "we" refer to Readers Theater All Year, LLC, a Maryland corporation maintaining its principal place of business in the State of Maryland, United States.

This Privacy Policy describes the information Readers Theater All Year™ collects about its Members and other users and what may happen to that information. Although this Privacy Policy may seem long, Readers Theater All Year™ has prepared a detailed policy because we believe Members and other users should know as much as possible about our practices, so they can make informed decisions.

By using this Site, you signify your assent to this Privacy Policy. Readers Theater All Year™ may amend this Privacy Policy at any time and will notify Members of any such amendment by posting the amended Privacy Policy on the Site. A Member’s or user's continued use of Readers Theater All Year's services, or of this Site, following such posting will mean that the Member or user has accepted those amendments.

By accepting the Readers Theater All Year™ Member Agreement, you consent to our use and disclosure of your personally identifiable information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and subject to the terms of the Readers Theater All Year Member Agreement and Legal Notice. Any dispute over privacy is subject to this Privacy Policy and to our Member Agreement, including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of the State of Maryland and of the United States.

What Information Do We Collect?

Our primary goal in collecting personal information from Members and other users is to provide them with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while using this Site. This allows Readers Theater All Year™ to provide services and features that are aimed at meeting Member’s and user’s needs, and to customize our Site to make their experience easier and quicker. When you visit the Site, either or both of the following two types of information may be collected: (a) personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis; and (b) Site use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse the Site.

Similarly, if you wish to order products or services for another person, you may be asked to submit that person’s name, address and telephone number.

From time to time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in promotions on our Site, which may be sponsored or conducted by a third party. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these promotions is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information.

WEB SITE USE INFORMATION

Tracking Technology

Readers Theater All Year™ logs IP addresses (a unique number assigned to every connection to the Internet) in order to improve security, analyze trends and administer the Site. We may track your movement within the Site, the pages from which you were referred, access times and browser types. We only use this information in aggregate and do not link it to you personally. To gauge the effectiveness of our Site, we collect some generic information about our Members and other users. Our web servers automatically recognize a Member’s or user's domain name, the web page from which a Member or other user enters our Site, which pages a Member or user visits on our Site, and how much time a Member or user spends on each page. We may use anonymous tracking technologies to collect, store and sometimes track information for statistical purposes and to improve the products and services we provide. We aggregate this information and use it to evaluate and improve our Site. We store information that we collect through cookies, log files, clear gifs, and/or third party sources for instance to verify your address or update your information and to create a "profile" of your preferences. We tie your personally identifiable information to information in the profile, in order to provide tailored promotions and marketing offers and to improve the content of the Site for you. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user's computer for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies on this Site. We use session ID cookies and persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our Site. A session ID cookie expires when you close you browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser's "help" file. Persistent cookies are used to differentiate Members from non-Members, to customize the content of certain sections of the website, and enable us to track and target the interests of our Members and other users to enhance the experience on our Site. If you reject cookies, you may still use our Site, but your ability to use some areas of our Site may be limited. If we in the future were to accept advertising on any portion of our website, then some of our advertisers may use cookies on our Site. We would have no access to or control over these cookies. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by this site only and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Third Party Links

We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web Site that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected by our Site.

User Requests for Third Party Service Provider Information

From time to time we may offer through our Site opportunities for Members or other users to request from third party service providers information about the third party’s products or services. In order to facilitate the Member’s or user’s request for information regarding a third partys services, we may ask that the Member or user provide personally identifiable information such as the Member’s or users name, address, e-mail address and/or telephone number before receiving the third party service provider information. We collect this information only through Site pages that have an expressly stated purpose of permitting the Member or user to request the third party service provider’s information or brochures, and we clearly state on the relevant page of the Site that the Members or users information will be forwarded to the third party service provider. We do not put this collected name, address or telephone information to use ourselves, and we do not share this information with any third party other than the third party disclosed on the page.

How Do We Use the Information You Provide to Us?

If you are a registered Member, we use your personal information to deliver services and products that you request or purchase. We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order for services or products only to complete that order, issue invoices, administer accounts and collect and process payments.  We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order. As a general practice, Readers Theater All Year™ does not sell or rent any personally identifiable information about its Members to any third parties. The following describes some of the ways that a Member’s or other users personally identifiable information may be disclosed:

We use the information you provide about someone else only to deliver the requested products and services and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

We may use your personal information to alert you to Site updates, new products and services available on the Site, special offers, and to send you e-newsletters.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our Site and to share with advertisers, insurance companies and other third parties. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our Site, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.

We may use your personal information internally to audit compliance with our policies and contractual obligations.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

Readers Theater All Year, LLC, may disclose your personal information: (a) when we believe, in good faith, that such disclosure is required by law; (b) in response to compulsory legal process, including subpoenas and court orders; (c) to bring legal or governmental administrative action against any person who has breached or threatened to breach a contractual or other legal obligation to Readers Theater All Year, LLC, or has infringed or infringe any intellectual property rights of Readers Theater All Year, LLC; (d) to Readers Theater All Year, LLC and other third parties against error, negligence, breach of contract, fraud, theft and other illegal activities; (e) to otherwise protect and defend the rights or property of Readers Theater All Year, LLC and its affiliates; or (f) to act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of our employees, Members and other users of Readers Theater All Year, LLC, products or services, or members of the public. We also may release personally identifying information to other companies and organizations for purposes of fraud protection.

We will send you service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, or the delivery of a service or product is delayed we might send you an email, or if there is some service issue with something you might have ordered. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. However, if you do not wish to receive these communications, you have the option to deactivate your membership by sending a request to more@ReadersTheaterAllYear.com.

If Readers Theater All Year, LLC were to be sold or disposed of as a going concern, whether by merger, sale of assets or otherwise, the membership database of Readers Theater All Year could, in whole or in part, be sold as part of that transaction. In such transactions, personal information will be subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy in effect when the information was obtained. In the event Readers Theater All Year, LLC goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred.

Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Readers Theater All Year, LLC, or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using this Site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

BY SUBMITTING PERSONAL INFORMATION TO US, AND/OR BY USING OUR SITE, YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY COLLECT, USE AND DISCLOSE SUCH PERSONAL INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND AS PERMITTED OR REQUIRED BY LAW.

Our Commitment To Children's Privacy:

Protecting the privacy of children is especially important.  Readers Theater All Year.com is a website directed only to adults. We never collect or maintain information at our Site from those we actually know are under 14 years of age, and no part of our Site is structured to attract anyone under 14.

Protecting Security of your Personal Information

We may still retain your information in our files however, to resolve disputes, enforce our User Agreement, and due to technical and legal requirements and constraints related to the security, integrity and operation of our Site.  To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.

You may opt-out of use of your information as set forth above by emailing us at more@ReadersTheaterAllYear.com.   We do not share Personally Identifiable Information with Third Parties for the purpose of allowing Third Parties to send offers or promotions to you. Readers Theater All Year™ may itself occasionally send you information on products, services, special deals, or promotions that we have found to be of interest to our Members and other users.

HOW Readers Theater All Year™ PROTECTS YOUR INFORMATION  

The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) to make a reservation through our Site, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
We employ security procedures in the storage and disclosure of personal information which you have given us, in order to prevent unauthorized access. Keep in mind, however, that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Our Site may also contain links to other Web Sites. Keep in mind that Readers Theater All Year™ does not control and is not responsible for the privacy or security practices or the content of these or other Web Sites. To the extent that Members and other users disclose information to other parties, including Hotels and hotel reservation systems, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the personal information that you disclose to them.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Readers Theater All Year, LLC may change this Privacy Policy at any time without notice to you, by posting such changes on the Site.

If we decide to make any material changes to our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the home page, and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently.

Praise from Teachers

...Keep doing what you are doing.  There are not enough quality scripts available for children and teens.  So many are inappropriate from a parent's perspective.  As a teacher I want to also build character and integrity while I teach a subject.  Why can't drama build up, inspire and be thought provoking?...Anyway, keep doing what you're doing...we need all the help we can get!
Jen H., Drama teacher

> ...I have been teaching for 35 years. RT has been part of my education journey for the majority of that time. Initially my experience with it was as a performance genre in the Drama Curriculum. Now I use it across the curriculum - a wonderful high motivation strategy in the language program - particularly reading - and so much more as you would know. I was drawn to your 'community' by the idea of leadership... I think what you're doing is wonderful..."
Graham B. Former primary teacher (now a Visual Art and Drama specialist)

Readers Theater All Year is the most comprehensive collection of Readers Theater scripts and resources I have found on the internet!...Thank you Carol for your leadership and vision and for making Readers Theater so accessible for teachers and parents.
Daniel Fiore, Elementary teacher/author What They Have Taught Me

I found the free readers theater online scripts, teaching tips, and curriculum teleseminars at Readers Theater All Year very inspirational to me. I used the Twelve Days of Christmas...Vacation script in my ESOL classes before Christmas break and my students all enjoyed it..
Lily T. Teacher (English for Speakers of Other Languages)

"> ..We did Squanto's Squash for the family on Thanksgiving and [my sons] participated and loved it. I am so excited about making this a major part of homeschooling. What a great way to learn!
Bethany P. Homeschooling Mom

> ...re: our script "The Earth Day Hen and Friends" I've used this! The kids love it. Thank you for sharing...It's just right for all levels in the class...Your free scripts are wonderful!...They learn so much from drama and reader's theatre...I see the shy ones gain confidence as they read. Fluency and prosody increases with reader's theatre...
Angela D., 3rd grade teacher
