Privacy Policy

Scope: This Privacy Policy describes how we handle your personal information on our website.

Security: For your protection, this website is secured using SSL high-grade 256-bit encryption. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, as you probably know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.

Data Collection: We collect information you provide and your IP address for security reasons and for verification purposes.

Cookies: We use cookies to make your user experience more accessible. PHG, Rakuten Marketing or other third parties may use code or cookies on our website to track the performance of our advertising efforts without collecting personal identifying information in the process.

Disclosure of Your Information: We do not share your information with any other party other than those you choose to interact with within your account.

No Spam, Spyware or Spoofing: We and our partners do not tolerate spam. Report related spam or spoof messaging to abuse@highered.org. We automatically scan and may manually filter messages to check for spam, viruses, phishing attacks and other malicious activity or illegal or prohibited content, but we do not permanently store messages sent through these tools. We do not rent or sell private information to include email addresses.

Read all disclosures provided by the resource provider. We may amend this Privacy Policy at any time by posting the amended terms on this site. All amended terms automatically take effect 30 days after they are initially posted on the site. By accepting this Privacy Policy, you expressly consent to our collection, storage, use and disclosure of your personal information as described herein. This Privacy Policy is effective upon acceptance and is otherwise effective on January 1, 2016. To report abuse to abuse@HigherEd.org.
