Information Collection and Use
Personal information is collected via a number of websites that are either operated by PDK or by authorized vendors. Examples of these websites include, but are not limited to the pdkintl.org
Personal information collected is utilized for the purpose of transacting business such as merchandise sales, membership services, and conduct of programs offered by PDK. Personal information is not shared with third-party entities unaffiliated with PDK without an individual’s express consent.
Mailing Lists and Electronic Newsletters
Recipients of emails and alerts have the option to unsubscribe from any mailing list. This may be done by clicking “unsubscribe” at the bottom of a PDK email. Those who choose to unsubscribe will not receive further mailings from PDK.
Coordination with the Educational Community
Strong, supportive relationships between Phi Delta Kappa, Phi Delta Kappa affiliates, and others in the education community are critical to our success. Given the importance of these relationships, PDK seeks to remain fully aligned with our stakeholders' privacy concerns. PDK will only utilize data provided by members and stakeholders to further the educational mission of PDK and education.
Privacy of Children
PDK provides additional privacy protections when children visit the website. We do not knowingly collect, maintain or store personal information from or about children under the age of 13. Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to create profiles.
Information self-reported from children consists of membership roster data including name, email addresses, phone numbers, gender, ethnicity, race, residence type, high school graduation year, grade level and other relevant demographic information. This information, which may be shared with state affiliates and local chapters, is used to support students’ engagement in official PDK activities and to notify students and their parents and/or guardians of opportunities supportive of the educational mission and objectives of PPDK. We do not require a child to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the foregoing activities. We do not disclose information collected from children to unaffiliated third parties.
Parents and legal guardians may review personal information we have collected about their child, request deletion or refuse to allow further collection or use of the information. To do so, please contact Compliance Officer, PDK, P.O. Box 13090, Arlington, VA 22219, firstname.lastname@example.org, 812-339-1156.
In order to protect against loss, misuse, or alteration of information collected, PDK ensures that appropriate security measures are in place at all physical facilities where data is stored.
