Privacy Policy

Last Updated: August 26, 2015

Online Education Research, LLC, owners and operators of OnlineEducation.com, takes privacy issues seriously and would like to share how we collect, use, and disclose information. This Privacy Policy clarifies our practices as they apply to information collected through this website (the “Site”), owned and controlled by us, which displays this Privacy Policy. By using our Site, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

Personal Information We Collect

“Personal Information” is information that identifies you as an individual, such as your:

  • Name
  • Postal address
  • Telephone number
  • Email address

We collect Personal Information from you to identify you when you contact us. Our advertisers may also collect Personal Information from you when you contact them through the Site or on their owned and operated sites.

When you contact us, we reference your Personal Information to service your inquiry and respond as necessary. We will not disclose Personal Information submitted to us directly, via email or contact form. Should we need to disclose Personal Information to a third party in order to resolve an issue, we will request explicit permission from you before doing so.

When you contact an advertiser through the Site (such as a sponsoring college or educational vendor), you submit Personal Information directly to them. In such cases, we are not responsible or liable for their use or disclosure of your Personal Information, as that will be subject to their own privacy policies. Please read their policies prior to submitting.

How We Use Personal Information

We may use Personal Information:

  • When you request that we connect you with vendors who will provide you with information about products and services.
  • When you have submitted your Personal Information to us–which you understand and agree constitutes making an “inquiry” to us and our affiliated entities–to contact you or allow our vendors to contact you via telephone for a limited period, even if the telephone number you submitted appears on any state and/or federal Do Not Call list. Your inquiry serves as an exception to state and/or federal Do Not Call laws.
  • To respond to your inquiries.
  • To fulfill your requests, such as to send you newsletters.
  • To personalize your experience on the Site and our other websites by presenting advertising, products and offers tailored to you.
  • For business purposes such as: data analysis, performing audits, new product development, to enhance our website, to improve our services, to identify usage trends, and to measure the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns.

Non-Personal Information We Collect

“Non-Personal Information” is any information that does not reveal your specific identity, including:

  • Browser information
  • Information collected through cookies, pixel tags, and other technologies
  • Demographic information and other information provided by you
  • Aggregated information

Routine Information Collection

All web servers track basic Non-Personal Information about their visitors. This information includes, but is not limited to: IP addresses, your MAC address, your computer type, screen resolution, OS version, Internet browser, timestamps, and referring pages. None of this information can personally identify specific visitors to this site. The information is tracked for routine administration and maintenance purposes.

How We Collect Non-Personal Information

We may collect Non-Personal Information through the use of cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, or similar tracking mechanisms. Where necessary, this Site uses cookies to store information about a visitor’s preferences and history in order to better serve the visitor and/or present customized content. Advertising partners and other third parties may also use cookies, scripts and/or web beacons to track visitors to our site in order to display advertisements and other useful information. Such tracking is done directly by the third parties through their own servers and is subject to their own privacy policies.

Third Party Sites

This Privacy Policy does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information or other practices of any third parties, including any third party operating any site to which this Site contains a link, whether on the site or through a widget. The inclusion of a link on the Site does not imply endorsement of the linked site by us or by our affiliates. We may also use framing techniques that may make it appear that you are still on the site when you are actually on a third party website.

Third Party Vendors

Our Site may include social media features, such as the Facebook Like or Tweet this button. These features may collect your IP address and which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. These features are either hosted by a third party, or hosted directly on our Site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR THE ACTS AND/OR OMISSIONS OF THIRD PARTY VENDORS.
