1. WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
We collect personal information that you provide to us.
We collect personal information that you voluntarily provide to us when you register on Echelon Catapult course registration forms (though the Google Forms service), express an interest in obtaining information about us or our courses, or otherwise when you contact us.
The personal information that we collect depends on the context of your interactions with us and our courses. The personal information we collect may include the following:
Personal Information Provided by You and Your Student We collect both parent and student first and last names; parent phone number; parent and student email addresses; student gender identity; student grade; student school and school district; student race and ethnicity. Parents/guardians have the option to decline to answer student gender identity and student race/ethnicity for privacy reasons. These personal informations are collected through a Google Form service, which we use for all of our course registrations.
Payment Data We may collect data necessary to process your payment if you make purchases to take Echelon Catapult courses, such as your payment instrument number (such as a credit card number), and the security code associated with your payment instrument. All payment data is stored by our fiscal sponsor, the Aerospace Museum of California. You may find their privacy notice link(s) here: https://aerospaceca.org/privacy-policy/. If you would like to speak to our fiscal sponsor, the Aerospace Museum of California, please contact them at (916) 643-3192. Their physical address is 3200 Freedom Park Dr, McClellan Park, CA 95652.
2. HOW DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION?
We use your personal information from these registration forms to compile student demographics and for use on our various social media accounts: Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, and LinkedIn.
We use personal information collected via our course registration Google Forms for a variety of business purposes described below. We indicate the specific processing grounds we rely on next to each purpose listed below.
We use the information we collect or receive:
To post student testimonials on our social media account. We post testimonials on our Website and social media that may contain a student’s first name. Our social media platforms are Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn. On these platforms, Echelon Catapult will share students' success in the respective course and how our student teachers have developed over their time instructing. Our other social media platform, Youtube, is to record our respective course sessions. Thus, students have the ability to watch our course in the future or if they miss class one day. Prior to posting a testimonial, we will obtain your consent to use the student's first name and the content of the testimonial. If you wish to update, or delete your testimonial, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to include your name and contact information.
Request feedback. We may use your information to request course feedback via a Google Form and to contact you about the courses that your child has taken. Student and/or parent name is optional and you have the option to decline to answer.
To enable student-to-student communications. With both parent and student consent, Echelon Catapult provides the opportunity for students to message each other on the Echelon Catapult Discord Server. Students must have parent and/or guardian consent to create an account under Discord. The minimum age to access Discord is 13.
To send you marketing and promotional communications. We and/or our third-party marketing partners, Facebook advertising, Yet Another Mail Merge Email Communications (YAMM), may use the personal information you send to us for our marketing purposes, if this is in accordance with your marketing preferences. For example, when expressing an interest in obtaining information about us or our Website, subscribing to marketing or otherwise contacting us, we will collect personal information from you.
Deliver targeted advertising to you. We target the Greater Sacramento Area and the outlying school districts through Gmail communications through Yet Another Mail Merge (YAMM) and Social Media (Facebook Advertising). Our courses are recommended for students in grades two through ten.

More specifically, we may need to process your data or share your personal information in the following situations:
