DigitalEd operates multiple commercial subscription-based email lists that interested parties can
opt-in or opt-out of at any time from the email management area of the DigitalEd web site.
From time to time, DigitalEd may create new subscription-based commercial email lists and may
pre-populate these lists with existing DigitalEd email list subscribers, based on subscriber
profiles. If you are not already a DigitalEd email subscriber, you will not be added to any newly
created DigitalEd email lists.
If you are a DigitalEd customer, and/or you have communicated with DigitalEd within the past 2
years, you may periodically receive emails from DigitalEd staff or from a DigitalEd email account
ending with @digitaled.com, including emails such as new product updates, security updates,
technical updates, customer service updates, and other commercial email communications considered
relevant to you, based on your customer or contact profile.
If you would prefer to never receive commercial emails from DigitalEd, you have the option to remove
yourself from all present and future email lists by globally unsubscribing here, or by emailing email@example.com. You may still subscribe to any
DigitalEd email list after globally unsubscribing, and by doing so you will be removed from the
global unsubscribe list and put on the list(s) that you subscribe to.
Emails verifying opt-in and opt-out requests are automatically sent to the recipient after each
email subscription update.
DigitalEd will take appropriate steps to ensure that personal information is protected from
unauthorized access and disclosure, including limited access to such data only to those employees
with a business need to know. DigitalEd will apply these principles regardless of the specific
technologies employed for data collection and use.
DigitalEd has reviewed the requirements of the Family Education
Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), and we have identified nothing in any DigitalEd product or
