Privacy Policy for Carolina Career College (Effective July 14, 2016)

This statement discloses the privacy practices for the Carolina Career College Website and informs you about

  • what personally identifiable information is collected;
  • what organization is collecting the information;
  • how the information is used and disclosed to third parties;
  • what choices are available to you regarding collection, use, distribution, and correction of the information; and
  • what kind of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under the company’s control.

“Personal information” is information that would allow someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your full name, address, telephone number or email address.

This policy only addresses our activities from our servers. Other sites (including those that we link to and third party sites or services which we co-brand, such as email) may have their own policies, which we do not control, and thus are not addressed by this policy.

Introduction

To provide you with the best possible service, Carolina Career College from time to time may ask for personal information.

This policy is to make you aware as to who is collecting the information, what type of information is gathered and tracked, what the information is for, and with whom the information is shared.

Attention: www.carolinacareercollege.edu is the main home page to Carolina Career College, which has the general privacy policy for the Carolina Career College website. This policy illustrates customer information that could be collected throughout the Carolina Career College website. It is possible that not all personal information outlined in this policy will be used, but we want you to be aware of our policy and understand our procedures.

Information Gathered and How it is Used

There are areas in which you can browse on the Carolina Career College website without giving us personal information. There may, however, certain elective areas of the Carolina Career College website, where, prior to entry, you will be asked for personal information. This information will be used by Carolina Career College to correspond with you, provide service and support, present a more personalized experience as you navigate the sites, process your orders, or supply you with requested information. The Carolina Career College website may ask for the following information when collecting information through the registration process (or new member registration form) that allows access to carolinacareercollege.edu: user’s first and last name, email address, mailing address, phone number and center location preference. The Carolina Career College website also provides the ability to request information and an Information Request Form will also ask for personal information from you. If you submit Personal Information in response to a Career Opportunity, please be advised that your personal information will be distributed within the company so that the hiring manager can contact you and potentially discuss an employment opportunity with you.

If you take advantage of the “Live Chat” feature used on any of the sites, please be advised that this feature is managed and provided by a third party contractor. This one-on-one technical help is provided as a courtesy to Carolina Career College customers. If you take advantage of the opportunity, a live person may gather your user name to facilitate the service, but will be contractually prohibited from disclosing your user name to others.

With Whom Carolina Career College Shares Information

Except as specified herein or unless Carolina Career College has your permission or is required by law, Carolina Career College will not sell, rent, lease or otherwise provide your personal information to others from ways different than stated in this privacy statement.

Please remember that when you submit information to a discussion group or some other public forum, the information submitted will be deemed public information and will not be considered confidential.

When you give us personal information, it is compiled on our behalf by a third party who has been contractually obligated not sell it or transfer it to anyone else. Instead, it is used to provide you with promotional offers from either Carolina Career College or third parties, but only at your direction.

As a general practice, we do not provide your personally identifiable information to third parties. So, for example, we do not sell your email address or your name and personal demographic information to mass marketers. Further, on particular pages where we ask for your personally identifiable information, we may explicitly tell you that the data we are collecting on that page will be shared with third parties, in which case those disclosures shall override anything to the contrary in this policy. We will not share your information with a third party who does not contractually agree to maintain the confidentiality of that information using reasonable security measures.

In some situations, we share your personally identifiable information with third parties who provide services to our site in order to enhance the functionality available to you on our web site, and to provide you with information on new products and services. Further, in some cases, we use your personally identifiable information to provide information to you, such as to send newsletters to you that you request or to personalize the site in accordance with your requests.
