We collect personally identifiable information you voluntarily choose to disclose and aggregate information that is automatically collected when you visit the web site.

Personally identifiable information refers to information that tells us specifically who you are and is collected when you choose to request information from a school that is listed on the site. This information can include your name, current email address, programs of interest and other information you choose to provide. If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain your email address and messages together with our responses.

Aggregate information is automatically provided by your computer and cannot be tied back to you as a specific individual. Examples include:

  • referral data (the web sites you visited just before and just after the web site)
  • date and time of your visits
  • pages viewed and time spent at the web site
  • browser and platform type (e.g., a Netscape browser on a Macintosh platform)
  • Internet Protocol (IP) address. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer on the Internet.

How do we use the personal information that you provide to us?

Broadly speaking, your personal information is used to help match your interests with schools that provide the training you seek. If your search yields no results, we may store your information and send you updates if and when programs you specified do become available. We also use personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service, and making other products and services available to our customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to the web site, new services and special offers we think you will find valuable.

Sharing information with third parties

We offer a number of third-party services from the site through a Co-Brand Service Provider and – if you choose to use these optional services – may share some of your personally identifiable information with the Co-Brand Service Provider offering such services. In addition, we may enter into strategic marketing alliances with third parties such as advertisers, businesses, partners and subsidiaries who may be given access to personal information, including your name, address and email, for the purpose of providing you with information about products and services that may be of interest to you. We cannot and do not make any representations about the practices and policies of these companies, and they are not subject to our Privacy Policy.

We utilize encryption/security software to safeguard the confidentiality of personal information we collect. This software provides a limited degree of protection against unauthorized access or disclosure, as well as accidental loss, alteration or destruction.

Do we comply with legally compelled disclosure of information?
