At Education Programs, we are committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and secure online experience possible. This Statement discloses the information practices for Education Program's Web sites, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used and with whom the information is shared. This document applies to all educationprograms.com Web sites, including but not limited to www.educationprograms.com, www.parentschildrenanddivorce.com, haccptraining.educationprograms.com, and onlinedivorceprogram.com
In general, you can visit Education Programs on the Web without telling us who you are and without revealing any information about yourself. There are times, however, when we may need information from you. You may choose to give us personal information such as your name, address and e-mail for membership level access to restricted documents that are not available to the public. In some cases, your credit card number may be required to order products. It is our intent to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you on the Internet.
Last Revised 15 Sept 2016
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, the information is protected both online and offline. When our registration or order form asks you to enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number), that information is protected with the best encryption software in the industry, SSL.
While on a secure page such as our shopping cart checkout, the lock icon at the bottom of Web browsers such as Firefox, Opera, Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked or open when you are just browsing. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information offline. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable credit card information. Even in these cases, credit card information is rarely seen since the process is automated by Secure SSL connection between the Education Programs Web site and Authorize.Net, or handled remotely at PayPal.com. The only instance the credit card number is actually seen by humans is in the case of an order problem, such as an order flagged by our fraud protection system or an order that has been declined.
Credit Card Warehousing
Education Programs has taken a strict stand against credit card warehousing, the practice of storing credit card numbers on Internet servers. In fact, our payment process is specifically written with this in mind, storing the credit card number on the server only during the order process; upon that order being approved and fulfilled, the credit card number is extracted from the World Wide Web server database, encrypted, then stored behind a firewall on a NON-public network for record keeping purposes. If you have any questions about the security at our Web site, you can send an e-mail to email@example.com.
Cookies and Log Files
Education Partners and Legal Requirements: Your enrollment details may be shared with the introducing College or University whose name appears on your course certificate. In some cases your enrollment status and information may be provided to a third party (such as your court) as required by State Mandate or Law. In no instance will your enrollment status be divulged to any third party except as required to complete your courses or as mandated by Law. Also in other cases, Education Programs uses contractors to provide specific services, for example, software installation or software support. These contractors may be given access to contact information for the purpose of helping you; this is obviously required. However, credit card information is NEVER shared with any other party other than a third party Credit Card Processing Service.
This Web site contains links to other Web sites. Please be aware that we [EDUCATION PROGRAMS] are not responsible for the privacy practices of other such sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Statement applies solely to information collected by Education Program's Web sites.
Mailing List and E-mail
From time to time, Education Programs may send e-mail to all members of the Web site. Every letter that is sent via e-mail will include a link and instructions for unsubscribing from any e-mail list. These instructions will include the "exact e-mail address" to which the letter was sent, not a pseudo e-mail address.
Changes to this Statement
Education Programs will occasionally update this Privacy Statement. When we do, we will also revise the "last updated" date at the top of the Privacy Statement. For material changes to this Statement, Education Programs will notify you by placing notice on our home page.
