Who We are
The majority of materials provided on our web sites are provided for information purposes and you will be able to use our web sites without informing us of who you are or providing us with any personal data. However, we might need information about you if you request more information about our education programs.
When requesting to be contacted by us, users may be asked to provide information about themselves and their companies. This information enables us to respond promptly and effectively to user questions and requests. We may track the domain names of users and analyze this data. We may use the accumulated data for several purposes, including, but not limited to, marketing analysis, service evaluation, and planning. Through our web site, we may conduct surveys or other studies for marketing and planning purposes. With respect to information collected from such surveys or studies, and in the event that responses are to be publicly disclosed, users will be notified about their participation, and we will disclose only aggregate information regarding users and not personal information identifying any specific individual. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in cases where surveys allow users to submit written comments, and where we advise users of the possibility of such disclosure at the time they take the survey, we reserve the right to disclose text information provided by any user through such a survey, provided that no personal information identifying that user is disclosed. Participation in such surveys is entirely voluntary. Circumstances under which we would publicly disclose such aggregate information include, but are not limited to, sharing survey results with the site population, providing data to advertisers on user preferences and/or demographics, and publicizing overall usage data in press communications.
Non-personal identification information
We may collect non-personal identification information about Users whenever they interact with our Site. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about Users means of connection to our Site, such as the operating system and the Internet service providers utilized and other similar information.
Users may be offered the opportunity to “opt-in” to receive site notifications, newsletters, or other information via email. Users may remove themselves from such services at their discretion. Any email sent to an “opt-in” list will include directions for how a user may remove himself or herself from the list, or a URL where the user may find such directions. If you no longer wish to receive periodic email updates from us, please contact us at email@example.com.
We take special care to protect the privacy of minors (the age of minors is determined by local law where you reside) and encourage parents/guardians to be active participants in their minor’s activities and interests. We do not target minors, and our web sites are not intended for minors. We will not knowingly collect data from minors. If we discover personal data from a minor, we will eliminate that data.
How we protect your information
To secure site integrity, we may employ measures including but not limited to security audits, use of encryption tools and software, and other reasonable security measures and procedures. Internal access to users’ private and non-public personal information is restricted to site administrators and individuals on a need-to-know basis.
We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
