Privacy Policy

Protecting your privacy is important to us. The following statement will help you understand how the Curriculum and Instructional Materials Center (CIMC) collects, uses and protects the personal or school information you provide to us. Personal or school information may include your name, the school name, shipping address, telephone number, email address, and credit card or purchase order information. The CIMC may obtain your personal or school information when you (1) purchase a product from the CIMC, (2) browse the CIMC website, or (3) complete an online survey that requests personal or school information.


When Purchasing a Product—The CIMC obtains your personal or school information when you make a purchase from us online, by phone or by fax.


When Browsing the CIMC Website—When you browse, you do so anonymously. Personal information – including your email address – is not collected. Your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) is logged to give us an idea of which parts of our Web site you are visiting and how long you are spending there. We do not link your IP address to anything personally identifiable. The CIMC website uses a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect information about how the site is used. Cookies were originally designed to help a website distinguish a user's browser as a previous visitor and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing a site. A cookie is a small string of text that a website can send to your browser. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses or capture your email address. Currently, websites use cookies to enhance the user's visit; in general, cookies can securely store a user's ID and password, personalize home pages, identify which parts of a site have been visited or keep track of selections in a "shopping cart."


When Completing an Online Survey—If you choose to share your name and your personal or school email address with us as a response to a CIMC-initiated survey, we will not sell, trade or share your information with any third party.


How We Use Personal or School Information


The information that you provide helps us to:

  • Process your order, including sending you an invoice and shipping the product to you.
  • Tell you about our curriculum and assessment products and special offers.
  • Understand who is purchasing our products, so we can better anticipate the needs of customers.
  • Improve the customer experience for all visitors to our website.

  • We will keep your personal or school information in our business records while you are a customer, and for as long as required of state agencies under Oklahoma law.
