Children's Privacy Policy

While resources are included for students who are children, CIRCLE’s target audience is Christian adult educators.  CIRCLE is not structured for young students, yet we recognize that educators may send their students to our website.  Understanding that the internet presents a host of possibilities and challenges for young students, we are committed to providing an online experience that is safe and rewarding for all ages.  Children who visit our website are free to access the various features offered without disclosing any personal information.  We neither solicit or knowingly collect any information from children directly or passively through the use of cookies. Should it ever come to our attention that a child's personal information has in some way been provided to us, we will immediately delete that information. Persons having any questions or concerns about our privacy policy may contact us.
