Privacy Statement: Before, During, and After a Contract

Client Privacy and Data Collection Policies

Sharing Confidential Data

We don’t share confidential information received from clients or their organization.

During the proposal development phase, we will not communicate any information with anyone, and will sign a non-disclosure agreement should it be requested.  Please note that we are not a proposal writing firm and are available for proposal consultation at a hourly rate.

If someone contacts us regarding research results or program outcomes, we refer that person directly to our organizational contact of record.

We follow the ethical principles and professional standards of the American Psychological Association (APA), the American Educational Research Association (AERA), the American Evaluation Association (AEA), and the National Council Measurement in Education (NCME) in handling personal information collected during the project.

When called upon we will collect data on our web site or will collect it using other on-line options.
