Educators and students may download, copy and/or print any materials from the Walden School website for educational use at home or school without specific written permission.

We welcome links to our website but request that you notify us before making any link and modify and/or remove the link at Walden School’s request.

Conditions of Use

Some links on our site may take you off our site. Walden School assumes no responsibility for their content.

This site is provided by Walden School on an "as is" basis. Walden makes no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, as to the operation of the site, the information, content, materials or products included on this site. Walden School will not be liable for any damages of any kind arising from the use of this site.

Privacy Policy

We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy lets you know how your personal information is processed and used. We promise that we will take steps to use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with this Privacy Policy. The following policies are only in effect for the Web pages, newsletters, and opt-in lists owned and operated by Walden School ("Walden").

What information are we collecting?

Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers, that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" IP address. When a visitor requests a page from the Walden website, our web servers automatically recognize that visitor's domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of this site, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement.

What information do we collect when you register or sign up?

Walden offers access to some areas of our website that require registration. We may use your registration contact information to send notification to you of Walden announcements by email, text, telephone, or mail. We do not share this information with anyone else.

What other information do we request?

We may also request your email address, address, general geographic location information, and other general information about you for the purposes of posting your information in the password-protected portal (“The Pond”), and/or for conducting surveys, or to provide additional services (for example, subscriptions to email newsletters, announcement lists or information about this website and Walden). We maintain a strict "No-Spam" policy that means that we do not sell, rent or otherwise give your email address to a third-party, without your consent or as permitted by this Privacy Policy.

When you sign up for “The Pond” access, your name or alias is recorded solely for purposes of maintaining your own account within this website. This information is not used to to identify you outside the Walden website.

Will we disclose the information we collect to outside third parties?

Walden will disclose personal information and/or an IP address, when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:

  • Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Walden;
  • Protect and defend the rights or property of Walden and/or its webmasters;
  • Identify persons who may be violating the law, Walden Conditions of Use and Website User Agreement, the rights of third parties, or otherwise misusing the Walden website;
  • Fulfill a user's order or request.

What else should you know about your privacy when online?

The Walden website contains many hyperlinks to third party websites and email addresses to other Walden users. The Walden website may also contain advertisements of third parties. Walden is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such third party websites, advertisers, or other users of the Walden website. Walden does not share any of the individual personal information you provide Walden with the third parties to which Walden links, except as stated elsewhere within this Privacy Policy, although Walden may share general, aggregate data with such third parties (such as how many people use our site).

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example through email, or email posts at Walden, or elsewhere - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you authorize the posting and/or post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.

By using the Walden website, you consent to the collection and use of information by Walden as specified above. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
