The Information We Collect

iEARN-USA does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when specifically and knowingly provided by such individuals.

How the Information is Used

We sometimes use non-personally identifiable information, including but not limited to, your Domain name and IP address used to access the YES site, that we collect to improve the design and content of our site, to enable us to personalize your Internet experience, analyze trends, gather broad demographic information, and administer the site.

Otherwise, we will only disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law; for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement request.
