Any user of the U.S. Cyber Range may request their user data be modified or deleted by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To get full access to U.S. Cyber Range resources, you (an instructor or administrator) must request an account which requires supplying us with some personally identifiable information (PII), i.e. your name, email address, school/organization, and job title/position. This information is used initially to help us determine your eligibility for access, i.e. currently a faculty member at a U.S. high school, college, or university.
Once your account is approved and you are authenticated on our site, we will use this information to record which courseware materials you download and when. This information will only be used in the aggregate, to identify by the organization (school) how much content is being used and which content is most popular. This will help us understand our audience and evaluate the access and use of U.S. Cyber Range resources and the impact of U.S. Cyber Range on the educational community. Additionally, the U.S. Cyber Range uses Matomo Analytics to help identify ways we can improve our services. With Matomo, no personally identifiable information (name, email, etc) is available. For more information on our usage of Matomo Analytics, please see our Data Collection Knowledge Base article.
In order to enroll your students into the Cyber Range, you may provide student names and email addresses to facilitate inviting students into a course. As an alternative to collecting this data, instructors can provide students with a course invitation code that they can use to join the course. For instructions on using invitation codes, please see our Inviting Users Knowledge Base article. In either case, students will associate their OpenID credential, such as Google or Microsoft, with their Cyber Range accounts for future logins. Additionally, to ensure students have access to their rightful courses, we keep records of which courses each student is enrolled in.
The U.S. Cyber Range will not willfully disclose your personal information to any third party without first receiving your permission, unless required by law.
The U.S. Cyber Range may use elements of the information you provide us for internal and promotional purposes, e.g. to send periodic emails regarding updates to our site and news items of interest.
The U.S. Cyber Range will not share your email address with any other organization. If you voluntarily provide your email address or other contact information, we might also use it to inform you of changes to the U.S. Cyber Range, to survey you about your use or opinion of the U.S. Cyber Range, or to ask for your support. At your request, we will remove your contact information from our emailing lists.
