We do reserve the right to disclose your information where required by law or to comply with a valid legal process (such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order), to protect TESOL Directs’ rights or property, or to ensure users’ safety.
What Information Does TESOL Direct Collect?
When you visit our website, TESOL Directs’ web server automatically collects information about your navigation patterns and your device, including your internet protocol (IP) address, what type of device you’re using (e.g., tablet, mobile phone), your device’s operating system, the type of browser you use, and the specific web pages that you visited during your connection. None of this information is personally identifiable.
We may also track data such as the total number of visits to our website and the number of visitors to each web page. We aggregate this information with member demographic data in our database and use it to maintain our system and to better understand how our visitors use our site and other services. The demographic data does not contain any information that identifies you personally. Our goal is to ensure that our website and other services are meeting our users’ needs.
When you make a purchase through the TESOL Direct website, we ask you to “sign up as a new user.” During that process, we ask for your name, email address, postal address and telephone number.
Yes. When you sign up as a new user, TESOL Directs’ web server places a cookie on your computer. A cookie is a small piece of text that gives your computer a unique identity, but it does not contain any information that allows us to identify you personally.
Cookies enable us to keep track of your shopping cart when you make a purchase, and they can remember your password for you so that you don’t have to retype it every time you visit the website.
Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can opt out by changing your browser setting. If you opt out, you can still access most of the TESOL Direct website, but you will not be able to make purchases.
How Does TESOL Direct Protect My Information?
Before you send your information to our database, we encrypt it with secure server software so that no one can read it during transit. We also use secure socket layer (SSL) certificates to protect all of the information that we collect against unauthorised access.
Does TESOL Direct Share My Information With Third Parties?
TESOL Direct may occasionally provide, sell, or rent limited data to third parties, including companies that offer products and services for sale to TESOL Directs’ members and customers. This information includes names, job titles, companies or organisations, and business addresses, but does not include business phone numbers, business fax numbers, educational background, or email addresses. However, TESOL Direct or its agents may occasionally send email messages on behalf of third parties. For information on how to opt out of this service, see “How Can I Control and Update My Information?” below.
TESOL Direct may also share statistical or demographic information in aggregate form with third parties for marketing or research purposes. This aggregate data does not contain any information that identifies you personally.

TESOL Direct has no control over such sites and resources and is not responsible for the availability of such external sites or resources. TESOL Direct also does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any advertising, products, or other materials on or available from such sites or resources, and TESOL Direct shall not be held responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on advertising, products, or other materials on or available from such sites or resources.
