Lewisville ISD Privacy Policy Information

  • LEWISVILLE ISD WEBSITE PRIVACY POLICY

    Lewisville ISD is committed to ensuring the privacy and accuracy of your confidential information. LISD does not actively share personal information gathered from its web servers. However, because LISD is a public institution, some information collected from LISD websites, including the summary server log information, emails sent to websites and information collected from web-based forms, may be subject to the Texas Public Information Act. This means that while LISD does not actively share information, in some cases may be compelled by law to release information gathered from its web servers.

    As part of its commitment to maintain the privacy of our website visitors, LISD has developed the following privacy statement. The statement has two purposes:

    1. To educate users about privacy issues.
    2. To inform users about specific privacy policies and guidelines employed by the district.

    LISD complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), which prohibits the release of education records without parent permission. Although FERPA regulations apply only to LISD students, the district is equally committed to protecting the privacy of all visitors to our website. LISD also complies with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which protects the data of children under the age of 13.

    DATA SECURITY AND INFORMATION PROTECTION

    LISD takes the security of your information seriously and has dedicated resources to the protection of your data. This includes technological controls that meet or exceed industry standards, and a staff that is trained in information confidentiality, integrity and availability of electronic data, resources and communications.

    LISD.NET

    When you visit lisd.net, and other websites owned and controlled by LISD, information such as your IP address, browser type, geolocation, and pages you visit may be tracked. This information is used to analyze trends or viewing habits, monitor for abuse or malicious activity, and for website administration.

    This information may be shared with a third party, at the discretion of LISD, when sharing is necessary to further these purposes. We may also provide your information to third parties in circumstances where we believe that doing so is necessary or appropriate to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request; detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues; or protect our rights and safety and the rights and safety of the users of our website or others.

    TEXAS PUBLIC INFORMATION ACT

    The Texas Public Information Act, with a few exceptions, gives you the right to be informed about the information that LISD collects about you. It also gives you the right to request a copy of that information and to have the district correct any of the information that is wrong. You may request to receive and review any of the information or request corrections to it, by visiting the district's public information request webpage here
