If you have provided prior express written consent in the process of requesting information from the Institute about its educational offerings or services, or if you have provided prior express consent after becoming a student to receive communications related to purposes other than marketing, we may use an automatic telephone dialing system (auto-dialer), artificial or prerecorded voice messages, and text messages to communicate with you.

In the case of text communications, you may receive text messages periodically regarding Amslee Institute. Message and data rates may apply. You may opt-out at any time by texting STOP to cancel future text messages. By sending STOP, you agree to one additional confirmation message stating that you’ve opted out and will no longer receive text messages from Amslee Institute.

By consenting to receive texts you specifically authorize Amslee Institute to send text communications using an automatic telephone dialing system or an artificial or prerecorded voice. Your participation and/or your consent is not a condition of purchasing any goods or services. Your consent also provides authorization for the specific telephone number that may be contacted via this program.

7. Student Educational Records

If you become a student, your educational records are subject to the U.S. Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), state laws and your Institute’s policies. Students have the right to limit access to FERPA-defined directory Information about them. See Amslee Institute’s Catalog and Policies to view the FERPA policy.

We operate or may process information in multiple jurisdictions, and some Education Partners and Business Associates may be located outside of the jurisdiction in which you reside. In such cases, your Personal Information may be collected, used, disclosed, stored and processed in these other jurisdictions for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might differ from your jurisdiction. We require our Education Partners and Business Associates to use your Personal Information in accordance with this policy and to take reasonable steps to ensure that your privacy is protected in accordance with applicable laws.

Your Information may be subject to the laws of those other jurisdictions, including lawful requirements to disclose Personal Information to government authorities.

9. Do Not Track and Online Behavioral Advertising

Do Not Track (DNT) is a browser-based signal that, when set, signifies your desire not to be tracked online. Because there is not yet a consensus on how companies should respond to web browser-based or other DNT mechanisms, Amslee Institute does not itself respond to web browser-based DNT signals.

We may work with third-party ad networks to either display advertising on our Sites or manage our advertising on other websites. These ad networks use cookies and other internet technologies (e.g. web beacons) to collect non-personally identifiable information about your activities on our Sites and other websites to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests. Some ads are targeted to your interests and preferences based on your browsing history, which is stored in a cookie on your computer.

If you do not wish to receive text messages you may opt-out by texting STOP to cancel future text messages.

You may also get additional support or help by sending an email to info@AmsleeInstitute.com or by calling 941-773-9020.

Marketing opt-out requests will only remove you from our list and the list of any Business Associate performing services on our behalf. We are not responsible for the use any other party may make of the Information once it has been transferred in accordance with this Policy, and you will need to contact such entity to have your Information removed from its database.

Student Educational Records and Social Networking Content

12. Our Security Measures

We will take commercially reasonable measures to secure and store your Information to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the Information under our control. We utilize industry-standard security measures when accepting your credit card Information during the online ordering process, as well as whenever we ask you to log in to any of our Sites.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. As a result, although we will utilize such measures, we do not guarantee you against the loss, misuse or alteration of Information under our control, and you provide Information to us at your own risk. You should always take care of how you handle and disclose your Personal Information and should avoid sending Personal Information through insecure email, Social Networks or other Internet channels.

13. Monitoring of Communications

We may monitor and retain all incoming and outgoing communications for the training of our representatives and for quality assurance purposes. To the extent such communications are selected, they are only retained as long as necessary to adequately discharge these purposes, unless a specific communication needs to be retained for legal reasons.

14. Internet Technologies Used

Cookies, web beacons and other relevant Internet technologies are used in our emails and on our Sites to allow us to accomplish the uses set out above as well as to deliver Sites messaging and to keep track of your Information. These small pieces of program code reside in your computer and browser and can be removed. If you desire to remove such technologies you may do so, but this may render our Sites unusable to you. You can opt-out of cookies or the other Internet technologies used by disabling these features in your browser program. Please note that the deletion of certain opt-out cookies may require you to renew your Online Behavioral Advertising opt-outs periodically. Consult your browser’s Help menu for assistance in changing cookie settings or removing cookie files.

Some of our Sites may contain links to websites hosted by Education Partners, Unrelated Entities and Business Associates operating websites on their own behalf or on behalf of multiple entities.

In addition, some of our Sites may have Additional Policies that apply to the use of Personal Information collected on that Site. Please make sure to read the policies of any websites you visit on the Internet carefully.
