Cookies and Web Beacons
We also use third party advertisements serviced from Google.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with out site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via our website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. Sensitive payment information (such as your credit card number) is protected by encryption and handled by Stripe.com
, a website that is devoted to handling online payments securely. You can view their privacy statement here
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
When we collect student information it is stored on a secure server. This information is kept private and we will not sell or rent this information to anyone. Only employees that need access to this information to perform a specific job (for example, customer service) will have access to this information. The creator of a class (e.g. the instructor for the course) that a student registers for will have access to student information that allows them to track student progress (for example, a student's answers to questions) and information that helps them manage the class (for example, the student's name, email, and student ID).
