About The Speak Up Research Project

This privacy policy covers the Web sites www.tomorrow.org, www.speakup4schools.org and www.speakup4highered.org (the “Site”) and the services available through the Site. We may post supplementary privacy notices regarding our offerings where more detailed information is required.

Information provided during Speak Up Registration Process
When you register your organization(s) to participate in Speak Up we collect your basic contact information including: name, email address, school and district name, city, state and zip, a secret word to take the survey and an admin password to view the survey results.

In the event, an individual wants their organization to participate in the survey but does not want to provide the contact information or email, we will register the organization with the contact name of Project Tomorrow and email address speakup@tomorrow.org, so that the respondents data can be incorporated into the aggregated Speak Up data analysis.

In the U.S., our registration process also obtains public school and district demographic data from the Common Core of Data database published by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) (www.nces.ed.gov). This information includes enrollment, ethnicity, free and reduced lunch indicators (which are a measure of school poverty) and a geographic classification for urban, rural or suburban.

It is the responsibility of the participating schools and districts to recruit their specific stakeholders to participate in the Speak Up survey. They may choose to promote participation in the survey (including the password) through a variety of mechanisms, including but not limited to, flyers, emails, blogs, websites or school portals.

Information provided when you subscribe to our mailing lists
If you subscribe to our mailing list, we collect your name and email address. You may also optionally enter additional contact information such as your title and phone number, the name of your organization, address, city, state and zip.

Information provided when taking the survey
Aggregated survey results are available, online, free-of-charge, via a password-protected site to participating schools and districts. To ensure that the survey is matched to the appropriate participating school, participants are required enter the name of their school and the state. Parents are the only participants who may take the survey without entering a state or specific school name.

We do not collect any other personal identifying information from the survey participant. All survey responses are collected anonymously and 100% confidential. We do not have any identifying characteristics that can link a survey to a specific respondent.

Automatically Collected Information
During the survey process, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, date/time stamp, and survey pages completed. We use this information to keep track of the survey status. Additionally, we use temporary “cookies” to track the movement through the survey; these “cookies” expire within a couple of hours and are deleted when the survey is finished.

In addition to the uses of your information described elsewhere in this privacy policy, we may also use your information in one or more of the following ways. We will not use or share your contact information in ways unrelated to those described in this privacy policy without your permission.

Communications from Project Tomorrow
We will use your contact information to communicate with you and provide you with transactional messages in response to your inquiries, to provide you with information you request, and to manage your Speak Up participation. For example, when you register for Speak Up you will receive a short welcome email.

We will send you weekly participation emails during the Speak Up survey period (unless you opt-out). We may use your information to contact you when Speak Up reports and presentations are available, or to let you know about opportunities that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving such communications from us at any time (but not the transactional emails described in the paragraphs above) by following the instructions to unsubscribe at the end of each promotional email or by directly contacting us via email.

Use of Survey Questions and Results
Your survey questions, responses and results are kept in strict confidence. We aggregate the Speak Up questions and responses into national, state, district and school level totals. Once submitted, the survey is automatically included in this aggregation process. We do not provide an opportunity to opt-out or delete individual surveys.

Once the Speak Up survey period is closed and the results are aggregated, participating schools and districts have the ability to view their questions and aggregated survey results with national benchmarks online free of charge. You may use this information for your own analysis purposes.

Statistical Analyses
Project Tomorrow reserves the right to perform statistical analyses of the Speak Up data based on school demographic and participant supplied demographic information. For example, we may analyze the Speak Up responses based on any one of these optionally entered fields: grade, gender, ethnicity, years experience, educational attainment, or income. Only aggregated results are shared.

State Departments of Education and Ministries of Education
Project Tomorrow works with State Departments of Education and Ministries of Education to help their specific districts (jurisdictions) and schools utilize the Speak Up survey process and results. Aggregated national, state (or provincial) or district results are made available to these participating state and provincial education agencies.

Other Third Parties
Project Tomorrow may disclose survey questions and national aggregated responses anonymously to organizations and individuals requesting access to our national findings.

We reserve the right to disclose your contact information, as required by law, and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us.

We may transfer your contact information to a successor entity upon a merger, consolidation or other corporate reorganization in which Project Tomorrow participates or to a purchaser of all or substantially all of Project Tomorrow’s assets to which this Site relates.

Any Speak Up contact may opt out of our email promotion and participation lists. You can follow the unsubscribe instructions included in each promotional e-mail, change your participation email status to opt-out or send us an email at speakup@tomorrow.org and request to be removed from our mailing list.

We endeavor to ensure that your contact information is accurate by collecting it directly from you and providing you with the ability to update it. If your contact information changes, or if you no longer desire to serve as the primary Speak Up contact person or receive information from us regarding Speak Up, you may request us to correct, update, or remove your information from our records by emailing us at speakup@tomorrow.org.

We will endeavor to fulfill requests to delete your contact information unless such information is required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes (such as storage in backup media created as part of our routine system backup procedures). We will respond to your request for access, amendment, or deletion within 30 days.

We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please check for change notices on a regular basis. If we decide to change our privacy policy in a material way, we will post a prominent change notice on the Site, and we may notify you by email of those changes so that you continue to be aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
