How we gather information from users
We collect Personal Information only if you manually enter it into a form or field on the Site. Personal Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, email address, street address, telephone number, gender, age, educational background, and educational interests. We may use your Personal Information in the following ways:
1. Your Personal Information may be passed on to schools you have selected and agreed to be contacted by, sometimes through a third party who then passes it on to the schools. If the form you filled out was hosted as a part of our Site, we may also send you a confirmation email to acknowledge your activity on our Site.
2. The schools or their partners or vendors may contact you via email, telephone, or mail in order to fulfill your inquiry. By using our Site to send your Personal Information to any schools, you are giving such entities permission to contact you, regardless of whether you are a part of the National-Do-Not-Call Registry.
3. We will store your Personal Information in our systems and we may use it to contact you about other products or services which we believe may interest you. If we contact you at all in this manner, it will be infrequent and narrowly targeted.
4. We may aggregate your Personal Data for the purposes of producing analysis of trends in the industry and in our business, and we may then share such analysis with, or sell such analysis to, third parties.
By providing us Personal Information, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Policy. If you would like us to stop using the Personal Information you provided in these ways, please email us at: email@example.com.
You can use the Site without providing any Personal Information. If you choose not to provide any Personal Information, you may not be able to use certain services offered on the Site.
Like other web publishers, we collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content and advertising. We respect your privacy and do not share your information with anyone.
Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive). Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners. Again, this information does not include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow anyone to identify you individually.
Personally Identifiable Information collected by BestEngineeringCollegeDegree.com and other company web sites may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting, processing of e-commerce transactions, administration of sweepstakes and contests, and other communications with you. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our web hosting service for example) may access such information. We will use your information only as permitted by law. In addition, from time to time, as we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
Affiliated sites, linked sites and advertisements
BestEngineeringCollegeDegree.com and our company web sites expect its partners, advertisers and affiliates to respect the privacy of our users. Our company may receive compensation for any purchases,sign ups or other affiliate links that you purchase from on bestengineeringcollegedegree.com. Be aware, however, that third parties, including our partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers accessible through our site, may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. For example, during your visit to our site you may link to, or view as part of a frame of content that is actually created or hosted by a third party. Also, through our company web sites you may be introduced to, or be able to access, information, web sites, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties.
BestEngineeringCollegeDegree.com is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.
You should also be aware that if you voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable Information on message boards or in chat areas, that information can be viewed publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of BestEngineeringCollegeDegree.com and this policy.
