Privacy Policy

Action-Ed Learning Resources, Inc. (Action-Ed), is firmly committed to respecting the privacy rights of all visitors to the Civic Mirror website at www.civicmirror.com, or any successor website (the ‘”Website”). The following privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) applies when you purchase and log into civicmirror.com, or otherwise share your personal information with Action-Ed (collectively, our “Services”). Please read this Privacy Policy carefully as we wish to help you better understand the information we gather, how we handle it, how we disclose it, and your options regarding our use of, and your ability to correct, this information. This Privacy Policy may be modified from time to time in order to address new issues and reflect changes on our Website. All changes will be posted here. Additionally, if the changes are material, we will provide notice through this Website or by other means and obtain consent before implementing such changes. By accessing, using or visiting the Website, you agree to be bound by all the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy as posted at the time of your access, use or visit. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please stop using this Website. We can provide hard copies of this Privacy Policy upon request.

what personal information we collect

Our Services allow visitors and members to learn about and interact with the Website. Action-Ed collects personal information about you such as your name and email address only if you voluntarily submit it to us (collectively, “personal information”). We automatically collect other information relating to your visit to our Website, such as your IP address, the server into which your computer is logged on, your browser type, operating system, browser language, and service provider (collectively, “automatically collected information”). We may store and use information that you provide or that we automatically collect to keep you updated about our work, analyze usage of the Website, and improve our content, layout, and services.

If you receive communications from us, it is because we believe you may be interested in the events and activities of the Action-Ed. If you prefer not to receive promotional e-mail messages or other communications from us, please reply to the e-mail message with “remove” in the subject line or write to us asking to have your email address removed from our mailing list and we will do so.

how we collect your personal information

Action-Ed obtains information from you either by you typing in your personal details or by the automatic collection of information through Google Analytics as you use our Services. We collect and store information that you provide or that we automatically collect and use it for the purposes for which you submitted it. In addition, we may use such information to keep you updated about our work, analyze usage, and improve our Service’s content, layout, and services. We may also use automatically collected information to improve our marketing and promotional efforts.

disclosure of your information to third parties

Action-Ed will never sell your information to third parties. We reserve the right to employ companies to assist us with such functions as hosting our donor information database, sending postal mail and e-mail, modelling our data, organizing fundraiser events, processing online credit card payments and to perform various administrative tasks. These companies may have access to personally identifying information about you, but only to the extent needed to perform their functions. Action-Ed requires that these companies keep such information confidential, to use it only for the purpose authorized by you, and to delete this information after performing these services. In case Action-Ed or one of our affiliates is acquired, we may transfer personal information to the successor, provided that the successor is subject to these same privacy commitments for previously collected personal information. Please be advised that we may disclose personally identifying information about you to the government or to third parties pursuant to law enforcement inquiries, court orders, subpoenas and similar requests, or when we otherwise believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate in connection with any activity that violates the law or may expose us to liability.

disclosure of your identity on our website

If you have a Civic Mirror account, you will have a secure public name that will be displayed to other users. If you join with an instructor account, you will be able to create your own display name, and assign yourself to your school. If you join as a student, your instructor will create your student account display name, which can range from something numerical (e.g. 90210) to a simple first name, or something else entirely. Instructors have the ability to turn email address features for students to i) off, ii) optional, or iii) mandatory. Passwords are generated randomly, but students have option to change them. ONLY teachers and students have internal access to civicmirror.com. We go to painstaking lengths to ensure that every new registrant is a living, breathing teacher. No one else has internal access

accessing, editing, and deleting your personal information

If you provide Action-Ed with personal information, you may access and edit this information at any time by visiting the “Edit Account” link at the top right corner of the Website. If you would like to request deletion of your account, please email us at support@action-ed.com. Action-Ed may delete the accounts of users who have not signed into the Website for 12 months.


The personally identifying information that you provide is stored in a secure location, including on password controlled AWS servers which are accessible only by designated employees who are trained in the proper handling of such personally identifying information. Action-Ed regularly assesses and adjusts the safeguards it uses to protect your information. You should be aware, however, that “perfect security” does not exist; third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications and Action-Ed makes no representation, warranty or guarantee that our Services are protected from viruses, security threats or other vulnerabilities or that your information will always be secure. You hereby acknowledge that we are not responsible for any intercepted information sent via the Internet, and you hereby release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of intercepted information in any unauthorized manner. If we become aware of any security breach which we know has resulted in unauthorized access of your personally identifying information, then we will endeavour to inform you of that breach as soon as it is practicable for us to do so; however, this notification may be delayed while law enforcement conducts any investigation.
