We believe that you are entitled to rely upon us to handle your personal information in a responsible and ethical manner, consistent at all times with the requirements of applicable law. We are also committed to providing you with a personal response to any questions, comments or concerns about how we do so.

What Information Do We Collect?

We collect information from you when you register on our site, place an order, subscribe to our newsletter, respond to a survey or fill out a form. In addition, if your employer is purchasing Courses or Exams for you to utilize, your employer may provide us with your name and e-mail address without notifying you.

If you access our Courses we retain information about your Course usage. If you take an Exam, we retain information regarding your scores.

When ordering or registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, mailing address, and/or phone number. If you make a purchase from us on our site, we will receive, use and protect your credit or debit card information. You may, however, visit our site anonymously without providing any personal information to us.

What Do We Use Your Information For?

Any of the information we collect from you is used primarily to process transactions and fulfill orders related to your purchases, to communicate with you in regards to your courses and exams, and to send you periodic emails and newsletters. If you take Exams from us and complete a certification program, we customarily place your name on a website certification registry indicating that you have received that certification, unless you request otherwise. In addition, if your employer or similar entity has purchased one or more Courses and/or Exams for you to take in connection with your employment, we may provide your employer (or other purchasing entity) with status reports from time to time regarding your progress.

Your personal information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the purchased product or service requested. Your personal information may be utilized by us in certain situations, aggregated with such information from other users, in ways which would not identify you in any way publicly or to third parties.

Note: If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future newsletters, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each newsletter. Similarly, you can request to have your name removed from our public certification registry.

How Do We Protect Your Information?

We utilize a secure server to store and protect all your personal information. All supplied personal information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Database to be only accessed by those authorized with special access rights to our systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.

After a transaction involving payment to us by you, your private financial information (credit and debit card numbers, social security numbers, etc.) will not be stored on our servers. In general, we retain other personal information, like your name and email address, in connection with your use and completion of Courses and Exams.
