The following principles apply to the personally identifying information we ask for and that you provide.  "Personal Information" is information that individually identifies you, such as your name, physical address or e-mail address.

How We Use This Information

Marketing Information

We use marketing information to help us better plan our website and services to meet your needs; to measure and improve our website services and features, to communicate with you by e-mail, postal mail, telephone, cellular/mobile phone, PDA devices and/or on applications for mobile phones such as iPhone or Blackberry about products or services that may be of interest to you, to provide you with customer support, to prevent potentially illegal activities (including illegal downloading of copyrighted materials) and to enforce our Terms of Use.  We also use a variety of technological systems to detect and address anomalous activity and to screen content to prevent certain abuses such as spam.  These efforts may, on occasion, result in permanent suspension or termination of website functionality for some users.

Personal Information

We may collect, use and disclose Personal Information for the following purposes:

  • to determine your admissibility and to register you for your selected educational programs
  • to provide requested products and services
  • to respond to your inquiries
  • to administer promotions to which you have indicated an interest
  • for our internal marketing purposes, which includes, but it not limited to, sending you material about updates, services, products, and the like, that we think may be of interest to you
  • for fostering communication and collaboration among members of the college community through social networks
  • for sharing with our educational and business partners
  • to analyze and improve our website and related services
  • to analyze risk and business results
  • to obtain payment for services that we provide to you
  • to maintain business records for reasonable periods
  • and/or as may be required or permitted by legal, regulatory, industry self-regulatory, insurance, audit or security requirements

Express Consent To Receive Pre-Recorded Voice Messages, Text Messages And Calls Using an Autodialer

In connection with the uses set forth above, we may use an automatic telephone dialing system, artificial or pre-recorded voice messages, or text messages to provide you with various communications.  Further, when you provide us with a cellular, wireless, or mobile telephone number as your contact number, you agree that you are providing us with your express consent to receive calls using an automated dialing system, pre-recorded voice messages or text messages related to your enrollment.  If you do not wish to receive these updates on your cellular or mobile phone, please provide us with a land based telephone number.


Financial Information

Your financial information will be used to provide requested products and services, to analyze operational and business results, to analyze risk, and for concluding your registration or other transaction you have initiated with us.  It will not be sold, rented, or otherwise transferred to a third party outside of this purpose, except in the case of a reorganization, merger or acquisition of our shares or assets.


Location of Information Processing

Because we operate in multiple jurisdictions, including the United States and Canada, some educational partners and business associates may be located outside of the jurisdiction in which you reside.  In such cases, your Personal Information may be collected, used, disclosed, stored and processed in these other jurisdictions for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.  The data protection and other laws of Canada and other countries might differ from your jurisdiction.  While we require our educational partners and business associates to use your Personal Information only to perform the services we have retained them to provide and take reasonable steps to ensure that your privacy is protected in accordance with applicable laws.  Please be advised that, by using our website, your Information may be transferred across borders and will be subject to the laws of those other jurisdictions, including lawful requirements to disclose Personal Information to government authorities.


Our Security Measures

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data.  For example, account passwords are stored in an encrypted format, ensuring that you, and only you, know your password.  We also provide member logon warnings, when you log on incorrectly, an e-mail is sent to your e-mail address identifying the IP address, date and time that the unsuccessful logon occurred.

E-mail addresses provided are used ONLY for the stated purpose.  E-mail addresses are not provided to any non-related third party.  In addition to this strict policy, consideration has also been given to prevent and confuse electronic e-mail harvesting programs which try to collect e-mail addresses from our web pages.  Since we do NOT display your e-mail address on our system (yet we allow people to e-mail or SMS message you), and since we also require human verification for all member contact submissions, our pages do not generate spam nor unwanted SMS messages.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure.  As a result, although we will utilize such measures, we do not guarantee you against the loss, misuse, or alteration of Information under our control, and you provide Information to us at your own risk.  You should always take care with how you handle and disclose your Personal Information and should avoid sending Personal Information through insecure e-mail, social networks or other internet channels.


Monitoring of Communications

We may monitor and retain all incoming and outgoing communications for training of our representatives and for quality assurance purposes.  To the extent such communications are selected, they are only retained as long as necessary to adequately discharge these purposes, unless a specific communication needs to be retained for legal reasons.  If you prefer that your communications not be retained for any reason, please advise your representative.


Internet Technologies Used

Cookies, web beacons and other relevant internet technologies are used on our website to allow us to accomplish the uses set out above as well as to deliver website messaging and to keep track of your information.  These small pieces of program code reside in your computer and browser and can be removed.  If you desire to remove such technologies you may do so, but this may render our website unusable to you.  You can opt out of cookies or the other internet technologies used by disabling these features in your browser program.  Consult your browser's "Help" menu for assistance in changing cookie settings or removing cookie files.


Children's Privacy

We are very sensitive to the issue of children's privacy.  Our website is neither developed for, nor directed at children under 13.  If you believe your child has provided us with Personal Information, or registered at our website and would like to have this Information removed, please contact us.


Site Hosting and Links from Our Website to Other Websites

Our website may be hosted by our business associates or contain links to external websites hosted by educational partners or other third-parties.  When you access the websites or external websites, the providers of the websites may have access to your Personal Information and may apply their own policies on how your Personal Information is used.  Please make sure to read the policies of any websites you visit on the internet carefully. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any sites or external websites that we do not control directly and the collection, use and disclosure of information about you by educational partners, business associates and other third-parties, will be subject to the policies applicable on those other websites or external websites.


Privacy Policy Changes
