Privacy Policy

The Growing Healthy Schools website ( is operated and presented to users in all locations by IT’S TIME TEXAS of Austin, Texas. This Privacy Policy covers use of information collected by IT’S TIME TEXAS.

We are committed to providing a fun, entertaining, and safe website for people of all ages. We are dedicated to safeguarding any personal information collected on the Growing Healthy Schools website. To help ensure a rewarding online experience for our visitors, we provide you with this Privacy Policy that describes the information practices of the Growing Healthy Schools website (, including how we collect, use and disclose personal information.

1. The Information We Collect

IT’S TIME TEXAS collects two types of personally identifying information from users: personal data (such as names and e-mail addresses); and aggregated data (such as information about traffic patterns on the Site, for example how many users log into the Site on a daily basis).

Personal data is collected when users provide personal data to IT’S TIME TEXAS, for example in registering for electronic newsletters, creating a user profile, in answering surveys, purchasing items from IT’S TIME TEXAS, and registering for contests and other promotional opportunities provided by IT’S TIME TEXAS.

Aggregated information, such as which pages users access or visit and information volunteered by users, such as survey information and/or site registrations, is collected through various methods. For example, IT’S TIME TEXAS collects IP addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Web. Web servers, the computers that “serve up” web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address, and when you request a page from IT’S TIME TEXAS, our servers log your IP address.

IT’S TIME TEXAS does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so although your session will be logged, you will remain anonymous to us. IT’S TIME TEXAS collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to provide aggregate data to advertisers about the volume of use on the Site.

IT’S TIME TEXAS also uses “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that most major Web sites write to your hard drive for record keeping purposes when you visit them. Cookies allow IT’S TIME TEXAS to measure activity on the Site and to improve your user experience, for example by remembering your passwords and viewing preferences, thus allowing you to visit various member-only parts of the Site without re-registering. Cookies are used by IT’S TIME TEXAS to measure activity on the Site and make improvements and updates based on which areas are popular and which are not. IT’S TIME TEXAS does not use cookies to retrieve information from your computer that was not originally sent in a cookie.

We may also request a user name and email address when a user submits a form through the “Contact Us” portion of the Growing Healthy Schools website so that we may respond to the inquiry. We collect the e-mail address for the sole purpose of responding directly on a one-time basis to a specific inquiry.

Finally, we may offer blogs or other Public Forums (as defined in the Terms of Use governing the website (the “Terms of Use”), as well as other features in which you may provide us with Submissions (as defined in the Terms of Use), but we take measures, including live moderation, so that users cannot communicate personal information through these Public Forums. If you use a Public Forum on this website, and disclose personally identifiable information, you should be aware that such information could be read, collected or used by other users. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these Public Forums.

If personal information is not provided to us, then IT’S TIME TEXAS may not be able to provide access to certain content and functionality on the IT’S TIME TEXAS website, or to provide other information, products or services which may be requested. 

2. How We Use, Disclose, and Store the Information We Collect

In addition to the purposes described in Section 1, we may actively collect and use email addresses and user names to track usage and to ensure users are following the site’s Terms of Use. In addition, we may use an email address and user name to ban a user temporarily or permanently from the Growing Healthy Schools website if that user engages in inappropriate conduct on the site. We also may use information in the aggregate to analyze site usage, as well as to offer products, programs, or services.

We may disclose information where we are required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena, or where we disclose information to service providers or other group companies who provide support for the operations of our website and who do not use or disclose the information for any other purpose.

If we sell all or part of our business or make a sale or transfer of our assets or are otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, we may transfer user data to a third party as part of that transaction, to the extent permitted by applicable law.

3. Collection of Information for Third-Party Sites and Sponsors
