When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Form and Profile Data
K12Leaders does not collect personal data to sell or share with any 3rd parties. Part of our mission is, however, to collect, organize, and present the data you choose to share through the creation of your “personal profile” with other registered K12Leaders. That is a core component of how members of this network can find and collaborate with each other. You have certain controls over what you share, and who will be able to see it, as outlined during the setup of your profile.
