Privacy Statement

Information Collection, Use, and SharingThis privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for MyCaliforniaPermit.com. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this web site.

Communications from the Site, Special Offers and Updates
We send all new members a welcoming email to verify successful enrollment. We also send an email when the user has graduated successfully. Upon graduating the course, we send an associate email to users to refer other people to our course along with links to the DMV practice tests and other vital DMV pages.

Your Access to and Control over Information.
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us:
  • See what data we have about you, if any.
  • Change/correct any data we have about you.
  • Have us delete any data we have about you.
  • Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
We provide a way to opt-out of our news, promotion, and associate emails. Users can click on the Contact Us tab from the front page of our website or call our toll free number (1-888-805-1437) to have their emails blocked. We then remove the users email from our contact mailing list.

Correcting/Updating/Deleting Personally Identifiable Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code, phone, email or postal address), we provide a way to correct, update or delete users' personally identifiable information. This can usually be done by loggin into to your account and updating your information in your Dashboard, or by emailing our Customer Support at admin@driver.org We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services and report to the DMV. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Information Collection
Backseat Driver & Associates, Inc. is the sole owner of the information collected on our websites. We collect information from our users during enrollment. Confidential information about you will not be provided to anyone other than yourself, and the California DMV. Under no circumstances will we provide any details about you to junk emailers or other direct marketers. We only share your personally identifiable information with third parties only as outlined within this privacy policy or if required by law to do so. In order to use our website you must first enroll in a course. During enrollment you are required to give us your contact information and personal information to report to the DMV to create a DMV certificate of completion: Your name, a parent's name, shipping address, e-mail address, birthdate, phone and a password so you may login at another time.

Information Use
The personally identifiable information we collect online is used for verification of your identity while taking our online course. We only share your personally identifiable information with third parties (such as the DMV) only as outlined within this privacy policy. While taking our course online, security questions will appear on the screen asking you to identify yourself. The correct answers to the questions are based on the information you provided us with during enrollment.

Links
Our websites contain links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our sites and to read the privacy policies of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy policy applies solely to information collected by Backseat Driver & Associates, Inc.

Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy policy, the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected. If, however, we are going to use users' personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users via email prior to the change becoming effective. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. However, if users have opted out of all communication with our sites, or deleted/deactivated their account, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personally identifiable information be used in this new manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our websites notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post a notice we will also email users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.

Security
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser on our Enrollment page, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page. We are also Trustwave certified. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Employees have their own user name and password to access student's information in the database. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every year as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our users' information is protected. Finally, the servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment.

Service Announcements
Sometimes it might be necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement, such as if we are experiencing technical difficulties or if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance. Those who have unsubscribed from receiving emails will not receive these notices.

Sharing Legal Disclaimer
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personally identifiable information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our websites.

Social Media Widgets
Our Web site includes Social Media Features, such as the Facebook Like button [and Widgets, such as the Share this button or interactive mini-programs that run on our site]. These Features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the Feature to function properly. Social Media Features and Widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Site. Your interactions with these Features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

Third Party Service Providers
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, Stamps.com. Stamps.com only has a database of shipping addresses and no other user information. They do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. We do not share website usage information about users with any third party companies except for occasional Google Site Stats ads delivered by Google. These are used by Backseat Driver & Associates, Inc. and Google to measure the performance of the advertising Google delivers to Backseat Driver & Associates, Inc. through the use of cookies, small strings of text that are placed on your computer when you click on ads.
