Your California Privacy Rights
[California legislation requires that certain disclosures be made available to California residents who provide information over the Internet that is used for direct marketing purposes. Specifically, any business that discloses a customer’s personally identifiable information to a third party for direct marketing purposes is required to provide a method for the customer to obtain the names, addresses, and certain other information for such third parties. If you are a California resident you may request this information from AE by writing to Florida Career College, 1000 Corporate Drive, Suite 500, Fort Lauderdale, Fl 33334 Attn: California Privacy Rights / Marketing or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. AE is not obligated to respond to more than one such request per customer per calendar year. ]
Information Collection and Use
AE is the sole owner of any information collected on this Site and will not share, sell, or rent this information other than as disclosed in this Statement. AE collects information from users at several different points on this Site. AE automatically collects certain anonymous information to help optimize site performance. Other personal information that users voluntarily provide is used for education services and marketing purposes, and may result in follow-up communications.
Information Collected Automatically
Certain general, non-personally identifiable information is automatically collected at this Site. For example, a user’s browser or Internet session automatically provides the user’s type of browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator), Internet domain (e.g., AOL, Netcom, Earthlink, etc.), operating system (e.g., Windows, Macintosh, UNIX, Linux), navigation path (i.e., the URLs of a previously visited site, AE web pages visited, and a subsequently visited site). AE uses IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Site, track user movement, and gather general demographic information for aggregate use. Information is collected from visitors via web access logs, scripting languages, email, and html forms. Additional information collected may include log-generated statistics and computer configuration. Information collected is used for reporting statistics, business improvement, account maintenance, and site improvement.
Information Requests and Registration Information Provided by Users
This Site is designed so that you may generally browse it without providing any personally identifiable information. Certain areas of the Site, however, may require or allow users to complete a registration or contact form in order to use some of the features of this Site. During registration, a user is required to provide his or her contact information (e.g., full name and email address, physical address, or telephone number). This information is used for marketing, for example, to contact the user about the programs, courses, or other topics on the Site for which he or she has expressed interest. Similarly, such information may be used to enable a user to retrieve a lost password. AE may associate any voluntarily submitted information with other automatically collected information. Users may be requested to create or provide a unique identifier, such as their social security number or student ID number. Additional demographic information, such as mailing address, education, employment, birth date, age, position, technical skill, etc., may be provided at the user’s option. Users may choose not to provide this information online and may, instead, call AE and request to have information sent to them.
Privacy of Children
AE is committed to making the Site safe for all of its visitors and to protecting the online privacy of children. For this reason, AE does not collect personal information from children under 13. AE encourages parents of children under 13 to regularly check and monitor their children’s use of e-mail and other activities online and to consider using parental control tools available from online service providers and software manufacturers. These tools may be used to prevent children from disclosing their name, address, and other personal information online.
AE reserves the right to share aggregated demographic information with its partners, affiliates, advertisers, sponsors, and other third parties. This information is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. AE may share such information with third parties performing services for or on behalf of AE. Such services may include communications, database, event management, hosting, mailing, and marketing services.
AE reserves the right to use or disclose any information as set forth herein or otherwise with your permission, or in special circumstances, such as when such disclosure is believed to be necessary to comply with the law or regulations, to protect the integrity of the Site, to fulfill your requests, to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation on a matter of public safety, or to respond to claims that any files or data violate the rights of third parties, or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of AE, its users, or the public. AE will abide by all applicable laws concerning the release of personal information. For example, AE will make such disclosures necessary under the reporting procedures of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Links to Other Sites
This Site contains links to other AE sites and may contain links to third-party sites. Please be aware that AE does not claim any responsibility for the privacy practices of third-party sites or sites that are not directly controlled by AE. AE encourages its users to be aware when they leave the Site and to read the privacy statements of each and every site that collects personally identifiable information. This Statement applies solely to information collected by this Site.
AE has commercially reasonable security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under its control.
AE may use certain contact information that it has collected to send you information about products, services, updates, or other information that may be of interest to you. AE may share this information with its educational partners to bring similar information to your attention. To opt out of such marketing communications, please submit an email request to have your e-mail address or other contact information removed.
From time-to-time AE may request information from users via web surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include demographic information (e.g., zip code, age level), but no information that can identify any individual person will be collected. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this Site.
Correction/Updating Personal Information
AE will endeavor to enable users to remove previously provided personally identifiable information. AE will use reasonable efforts to remove a user’s personally identifiable information from the then current Site at any time upon written request to email@example.com. Such removal of personally identifiable information will not ensure the permanent removal of all such personally identifiable information from the Site. For example, such personally identifiable information may remain in AEs archival or backup copies of the Site.
Notification of Changes
AE reserves the right to change this Statement from time to time and such modifications will be effective on the date that AE posts the modified Statement to the Site. AE will use information in accordance with the Statement under which such information was collected. If at any point AE decides to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, AE will first notify users according to the contact information provided by the users.
