1. Our Commitment to Privacy
2. The Information We Collect
Personally Identifiable Information. We collect and store personally identifiable information about you – such as your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, place of employment, title, etc., when you register on the Website. We also collect transaction and experience information, such as information relevant to the work you produce in the courses you take with us, and any other transactions with us, as well as information about our communications with you. Examples include your student profile, account history, requests for information, and our responses. We need this information to provide the products and services that you request from our Website and to let you know of additional products and services about which you might be interested.
Non-personally identifiable information. We do automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our site – such as your IP address or the type of browser you are using, the search terms you use on our Website, the specific web pages you visit, and the duration of your visits. Non-personally identifiable information can include certain personally identifiable information that has been de-identified; that is, information that has been rendered anonymous. We also obtain non-personally identifiable information about you from information that you provide us, either separately or together with your personally identifiable information.
3. Use of Information About You
We use non-personally identifiable information in a variety of ways, such as to analyze site traffic (such as aggregated information on the pages visited by our users), which allows us to improve the design and content of our site. We may use your non-personally identifiable information by itself or aggregate it with information we have obtained from others. We may share your non-personally identifiable information with third parties to achieve these objectives and others, but remember that aggregate information is anonymous information that does not personally identify you.
We use personally identifiable information you provide solely to respond to your inquiries, to make further inquiry as to your interest in our services, and to provide our services to you. We will use your contact information to contact you regarding your interest in our products and services, and to provide administrative notices and communications relevant to your use of our site and our products and services.
We may send you promotions and news about courses or other products and services we think may be of interest to you. Aside from the foregoing, we will not contact you about other matters, unless you specifically request it. We will not we share, rent, or sell your personally identifiable information outside of our organization, except we may use a third party provider to assist with the foregoing described activities.
Payments for our products and services ordered from us through our Website are handled by a third party provider. This provider, as well as other providers, may collect additional information, including billing information, credit card number and expiration date, and tracking information from checks or money orders.
It is possible, though unlikely, that we may be required to disclose personally identifiable or non-personally identifiable information about you if we are required to do so by law, with respect to copyright and other intellectual property infringement claims, or if we believe that such action may be necessary to: (a) fulfill a government request; (b) conform with the requirements of the law or legal process; (c) protect or defend our legal rights or property, our Website, or other users; or (d) in an emergency to protect the health and safety of our Website's users or the general public.
Also, we cannot guarantee the protection of the information you send to us by means of unencrypted email, or that may be collectable in transit by others.
4. Links to Third-Party Sites
Our Website may link to or contain links to other third party websites that we do not control or maintain. We are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by any third party website. We encourage you to note when you leave our Website and to read the privacy statements of all third party websites before submitting any personally identifiable information.
5. Cookies and Preference Based Advertising
Opting Out: If you do not wish to participate in preference based advertising via these third party advertising networks, go to www.aboutads.info and follow the simple opt-out process. A couple of important notes about this opt-out tool: (1) it includes all the advertising networks that we may work with, but also many that we do not work with; and (2) it may rely on cookies to ensure that a given advertising network does not collect information about you (“Opt-out Cookies”). Therefore, if you use or buy new computer, change web browsers or delete these Opt-out Cookies from your computer, you will need to perform the opt-out task again.
(C) Do Not Track Features: Certain browsers may offer you the option of providing notice to websites that you do not wish for your online activities to be tracked for preference based advertising purposes (“DNT Notice”). Some browsers are, by default, set to provide a DNT Notice, whether or not that reflects your preference. Providing DNT Notice is often touted as a means to ensure that cookies, web beacons and similar technology are not used for preference based advertising purposes – that is, to restrict the collection of Non-PII about your online activities for advertising purposes. Unfortunately, given how preference based advertising works, DNT Notices may not effectively accomplish this goal. For this and a variety of other reasons, with respect to our Website, we do not take any action based on browser based DNT Notices. Rather, if you do not wish to participate in preference based advertising activities, you should follow the simple opt-out process identified above.
6. Other Uses and Information
(A) Email Communications: In certain instances we may communicate with you via email; for example, if you request a particular service or sign up for a feature that involves email communications, the email relates to a purchase you have made with us, we are sending you information about our other products and services, or you consented to being contacted by email for a particular purpose. You may “opt out” of receiving future commercial email communications from us by clicking the “unsubscribe” link included at the bottom of most emails we send, or as provided below; provided, however, we reserve the right to send you transactional emails such as customer service communications.
(B) Transfer of Assets: As we continue to develop our business, we may sell or purchase assets. If another entity acquires us or all (or substantially all) of our assets, the PII and Non-PII we have about you will be transferred to and used by this acquiring entity, though we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your preferences are followed. Also, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, all such information may be considered an asset of ours and as such may be sold or transferred to third parties.
(C) Extraordinary Circumstances: We reserve the right to disclose any PII or Non-PII about you if we are required to do so by law, with respect to copyright and other intellectual property infringement claims, or if we believe that such action is necessary to: (a) fulfill a government request; (b) conform with the requirements of the law or legal process; (c) protect or defend our legal rights or property, our , or other users; or (d) in an emergency to protect the health and safety of our customers or the general public.
(D) Your California Privacy Rights: Residents of the State of California, under certain provisions of the California Civil Code, have the right to request from companies conducting business in California a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed certain personally identifiable information, as defined under California law during the preceding year for third party direct marketing purposes. You are limited to one request per calendar year. In your request, please attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current California address for our response. You may request the information in writing at: InsightsCentral, 3588 Outlook Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio 45208.
7. Our Commitment to Security
We have implemented security measures we consider reasonable and appropriate to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We cannot, however, guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personally identifiable information. Whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online—for example, on message boards, forums, through email or in chat areas—that information can be collected and used by others.
8. Other Sites/Links
Our Website may link to or contain links to other third party websites that we do not control or maintain, such as in connection with purchasing products referenced on our Website and banner advertisements. We are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by any third party website. We encourage you to note when you leave our Website and to read the privacy statements of all third party websites before submitting any personally identifiable information.
