How does the vendor store PII data? Is the data encrypted when it’s in a rested state? 

All user data is stored through Wordpress. Read this for details: https://wordpress.com/support/security/ 

Describe the purpose for which the PII will be used. 

Names and emails will be used for email campaigns (on Mailchimp.com) about updates, new products, teaching tips and other communication. Other information that is not required (languages taught, location, age group taught, etc) that the user submits, will be used to specify which email campaign they will receive.

User names, IP addresses and login times/dates are tracked to ensure terms of use are not being violated (sharing login with non-members).

Google Analytics is used to inform us of website behaviors and location, but the information is anonymous. Information is not collected or stored by Creative Language Class. We do not and will not sell PII to any outside company or organization.

Who would I reach out to if they had any questions?
