The Simple Version

We use your contact information for in-house purposes only, and do not share any information about you with third parties without your explicit opt-in. Registration and purchases made through our website also opt you into our e-newsletters, from which you’re able to unsubscribe at any time. We think, though, that you’ll like them quite a bit.

If you choose not to provide any of that information, we may not be able to fulfill your request or complete your order, but you will still be free to browse the other sections of the websites owned and administered by Dovetail Learning.

From time to time, we will send you an email announcements about new features, products, and services from Dovetail Learning and selected partners. Some demographic data, volunteered through our annual surveys, are used statistically to provide us with an accurate profile of our customers.
