The Website links to a secure password-protected area called the “Blackbaud Portal.” The Blackbaud Portal is operated by Blackbaud, Inc. (“Blackbaud”), an independent third party. The Blackbaud Portal is intended to serve as a resource for students (“Students”), parenting adults (“Parents”), faculty and staff (“Faculty Members”), and coaches (“Coaches”) of the School. Those constituents are provided an account (“Account”) on the Blackbaud Portal upon their entry into the campus community. Your Account will contain certain Personal Information such as your name, address, phone number, email address, and, where applicable, your profile picture, emergency contact information, and birthdate. You may change or update certain Personal Information associated with you Account through the Blackbaud Portal.
If you are provided an Account on the Blackbaud Portal, please do not share your unique log in and password. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your login and password, and for restricting access to your computer. You also agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your login or password. You agree to immediately notify the School of any unauthorized use of your password or login or any other breach of security.
Personal Information provided on the Blackbaud Portal is strictly for your personal school-related use and may not be shared with third parties. Use of this information for private, commercial, or political mailings and/or distribution to any outside parties is prohibited. If you misuse information provided on the Blackbaud Portal, we reserve the right, without prior notice to you, to take the appropriate action we deem warranted, which may include denying you access to your Account and the Blackbaud Portal.
Alumni (“Alumni”) may provide the School with their Personal Information such as their name, mailing address, email address and phone number by filling out the online form available at https://lwhs.org/alumni/stay-in-touch.

(b) Information We Collect As You Access Our Website. In addition to any Personal Information or other information you choose to submit to us, we and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies that collect certain non-Personal Information whenever you visit our Website (“Usage Information”). Methods that we use to collect Usage Information include the following:
A cookie is a small text file stored by your browser that allows the Website to “remember” your preferences (such as website bookmarks) on the Website from visit to visit, or to maintain your “logged in” status when visiting protected areas. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any Personal Information while on our Website. Web browsers have settings allowing you to reject cookies, or selectively accept cookies, or delete cookies previously accepted. Please be aware that rejecting or deleting cookies from our Website may make certain functions unavailable to you.
Similar to many websites, we use website statistical packages such as Google Analytics to analyze trends in how our Website is accessed and utilized. Information monitored includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, geographic location of visitors (country, city), browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, time spent on pages, and keywords used to find our Website via search engines. This information is anonymous and cannot be directly linked to individual users.
Some web browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature. This feature lets you tell websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. These features are not yet uniform across browsers. We do not engage in online tracking of our users (i.e., the collection of personal information about a user’s online activities over time and across third party websites or online services), and therefore, the Website is not currently set up to respond to “Do Not Track” signals. We also do not authorize third parties to collect Personal Information about an individual user’s online activities over time and across different websites when a user uses the Website.
Our primary goal in collecting your Personal Information is to respond to and fulfill your requests of us, or to help you use the Website. For example, we will use your Personal Information to process an online donation. We may use technical information to analyze trends, administer and improve the Website, and monitor traffic and usage patterns for information security purposes. In addition, your Personal Information may also be used to send you emergency communications through messages or other alerts, or as otherwise required by law.
(a) Service Providers. We may share your Personal Information with companies that perform services for us, such as analyzing user data. They have access to Personal Information as needed to perform their functions but may not disclose your information for other purposes.
(b) Disclosure By Law; Protection of Us and Others. We may disclose information you provide if we, in our sole discretion, believe that disclosure is reasonable to (1) comply with the law, requests or orders from law enforcement, or any legal process (whether or not such disclosure is required by applicable law), (2) protect or defend our or a third party’s rights or property, or (3) protect someone’s health or safety, such as when harm or violence against any person (including you) is threatened. We may also disclose information you provide if we, in our sole discretion, suspect fraud or other illegal activity.
(c) Business Changes. If any or all of our assets are acquired by, or merged with another entity, we will share some or all of your information with this entity and/or your Personal Information may then be owned by that entity.
(d) In the School Directory. The Blackbaud Portal features a directory (the “Directory”) for current members of the School community.

Please note that you cannot opt-out of receiving administrative and transaction-related emails from us.
We take the security of your Personal Information seriously and take precautions to protect your Personal Information located on our internal servers. For example, we use standard, industry-wide, commercially reasonable security practices such as encryption, firewalls and SSL (Secure Socket Layers) to protect Personal Information. But no method of data transmission over the Internet or data storage is 100% secure and therefore we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information on our internal servers or transmitted to or from the Website. You must maintain the security of your information as well – for example, by not sharing your password and account information with any unauthorized parties.
We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from individuals under 13. If you become aware that your child under the age of 13 has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us. If we become aware that an individual under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will take steps to remove such information.
