Last revised Aug 30, 2018.

Lindamood-Bell Learning Process, Inc., Lindamood-Bell AUS, LBLP Canada, Inc., Lindamood – Bell Learning Processes PTE. LTD., LBLP International Holdings, Inc., Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes PTY Limited (“Lindamood-Bell”, “LBLP”, “L-B”, “We”, “we”, “us”) value our customers and respect your privacy. We are committed to protecting your information. Please read our Global Privacy Policy (Privacy Policy) to learn more about the ways in which we use and protect your personal information.

We have recently updated our Privacy Policy to reflect our compliance with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union for our UK based operations as well as made updates that reflect Lindamood-Bell operations across the globe. You can always reference our GDPR contact information if you have any questions or concerns. The key changes we’ve made are:

  1. Readability and Transparency: We’ve worked hard to provide clarity, in simple language, around the personal information we collect from our customers and potential customers, why we collect this information and how we use it.
  2. Control over your data: We’ve outlined how you can correct the information we have if it’s incorrect and your choices regarding this information.

Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, we do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes without your explicit consent. As described in this Privacy Policy, we do, however, share your information for marketing purposes with our third party affiliate, Gander Publishing, Inc., a California corporation (“Gander”). Gander provides educational products and materials that are designed to develop sensory-cognitive processing as the foundation for language, literacy, and math skills. For your reference, Gander is located at 450 Front Street, Avila Beach, CA 93424.

Lindamood-Bell’s Privacy Policy describes the personal information we collect about you, why we collect it, how we use it and when we share it with Gander. Our Privacy Policy also describes the choices you can make about how we collect and use your information. You may opt out of our information sharing by contacting us in accordance with this Privacy Policy. To do so, you may contact us as follows:

How does Lindamood-Bell use my information?

When you request information from us, we use the personal information you provide to us to respond to you via phone, mail, or email in accordance with your request. You always have the choice not to receive marketing information mailings or calls. We may also use information about your program interests and purchases from Gander to help us improve our site design and your online experiences. We may contact you, subject to the choices you have made, via email, mail, or telephone, to conduct market research and learn more about how we can improve our program offerings. To serve you better, we may combine information you give us and information about your program interests and purchases with information from third parties, including demographic information and information that is publicly available. We may also combine this information with information from Gander. We use that combined information to enhance and personalize your online experience with us, and to communicate with you in accordance with this Privacy Policy. As part of the nature of our business, we use information provided by you to extend the services we offer. This often entails collecting sensitive information about students who you have guardianship over or students with whom you have an agreement to extend educational services. We use this information solely for the purposes of assessing needs and providing services. Information can include date of birth, current and past medical treatment, current and past cognitive therapies, names of medical or educational professionals involved in current or past treatment/therapies, data we generate relating to instructional services, and billing records for those services.

Does Lindamood-Bell share my information with third parties other than Gander?

Lindamood-Bell may share your information with Gander so that Gander can communicate with you by email or mail about its programs, services and promotions that may be of interest to you. Gander has a privacy policy that is consistent with Lindamood-Bell’s privacy policy. Aside from Gander, we will not share your information with any other third party for marketing purposes.

We contract with service providers to maintain and manage our client information in order to fulfill contractual obligations and to communicate with our current, past, and prospective customers. We carefully choose service providers that we use to store and process your information including, but not limited to, Amazon (AWS), Google (G Suite), Salesforce.com, and Microsoft (MSSQL). We do not authorize any of these service providers to make any other use of your information. We do, upon request, share information about our assessment and/or instructional results with other professionals with whom you collaborate with and have an existing, trusted relationship. This is done only if you sign a Release of Records indicating the specific information you would like us to share and with whom you would like it shared. Lindamood-Bell reserves the right to disclose information about you as required by law, in response to legal process and law enforcement requests, and as necessary to protect the property, interests, and rights of Lindamood-Bell, its affiliates, and others.

How do I OPT OUT of receiving promotional communications?

We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us. If you prefer not to receive promotional information from us, or if you do not want us to use your information to enhance your online experience, you may OPT OUT of receiving our promotional communications by simply following the Unsubscribe or Preference Center link at the bottom of an email. We will maintain your information in our “do not contact” list to ensure that we can honor your request. Please note that it may take up to 30 days to process your opt out request, during which time you may continue to receive communications from Lindamood-Bell and/or Gander.

How do I access my information? How do I change or delete my information?

You may ask us to update your personal information by calling or writing to us, using the contact information above. You may ask us to provide you a copy of the information we have collected about you if collected on the basis of consent and if it is reasonable for us to comply with and satisfy your request.

Is my information secure?

We believe your data must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. We use procedural and technical safeguards including encryption, firewalls, and secured communication protocols to protect your personal information against loss, theft, and unauthorized access and disclosure.
