The website is not structured to attract children under 13, and the Company does not intend to collect personally identifiable information from anyone we know to be under 13 years of age. If you are under 13, please do not use our website. If we find out we have unknowingly collected personally identifiable information about a child under 13, we will take all reasonable measures to delete that information from our system as soon as possible.
During the course of the visitor’s use of the website, we automatically collect certain information on the website through cookies, web beacons, log files, and other common website data collection techniques, and we receive information from third parties.
Website Cookies: The website may place “cookies” on a visitor’s computer. Cookies are small text files. Our cookies save anonymized data about individual visitors, allowing the website to recognize information about a visitor and help deliver personalized content and other services and functions.
The website uses both session cookies, which terminate when a user closes his browser, and persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s computer until they expire or are manually deleted.
The website also contains coding from our business and technology partners which generates third-party cookies. Third-party cookies allow our business and technology partners to store Non-Personally Identifiable Information they can access when you visit this or other websites.
Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them, and provide the ability to remove them. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser. Blocking cookies may result in a lower quality experience for you while you are using the website.
Web Beacons (1×1 Pixels or GIFS): Our website contains coding known as Web Beacons that use 1×1 pixel images to capture and transmit the online activity of users on our website. These Web Beacons typically transmit information about form completions and other website activities in order to measure advertising effectiveness or store analytics information. In addition, the Company may use web beacons in HTML-based emails. This allows us to evaluate the effectiveness of our email communications and our marketing campaigns by showing how many emails recipients have opened.
Log Files: Like most websites, our servers utilize log files. Log files store information including internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. Log files are used to analyze trends, administer the website, track users’ movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We use log file information at times to help identify you as you browse and to gather broad technical and demographic information on who uses our website.
In addition to the information collected automatically, we also collect information that you provide to us when you register for an account on our website, request information about a particular school or educational program, or otherwise voluntarily provide information about yourself and/or your educational interests.
From time to time, we post customer testimonials/comments/reviews on our website, which may contain personally identifiable information. We do obtain the customer’s consent via email prior to posting the testimonial to post their name along with their testimonial.
Our website offers publicly accessible blogs. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. To request removal of your personal information from our blog or community forum, contact us at email@example.com or the mailing address provided at the end of this document. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
The Company provides a number of different opportunities to review and change information in your profile or that we have stored about you. For example, you can go to the website and log in to your account to make desired changes.
To request that information which had previously been voluntarily provided be removed from our database, send a request to the Company using the Company Contact Information below. We will attempt to delete such information, where feasible, after we receive a request from you. We will respond to a request for access within 30 days.
Notwithstanding any request from you, we may retain a record of your information that is necessary to comply with applicable law or as necessary to manage your account.
By completing website registration, filling out school information request forms, or otherwise providing your email address on one of our pages, you consent that the website may send email to you regarding our products and services or those of our business partners.

The Company has implemented technical, administrative, physical security measures, and other generally accepted industry standards designed to protect your information from unauthorized access and improper use. We review our security procedures on a regular basis to consider new or updated and appropriate technology and methods. Please be aware, however, that no method of transmission of information over the Internet, or method of electronic storage of information, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can send email us using the Company Contact Information.
California has passed legislation requiring certain disclosures be made available to California residents who use the Internet and provide information that may be used for marketing purposes. It requires any business that discloses a customer’s personal information to any third party for direct marketing purposes to provide the customer a method for obtaining the names, addresses, and certain other specified details of anyone who might have received that personal information. If you are a California resident, you may request this information by requesting it using the Company Contact Information.
