Scope of This Policy
As used in this Policy, the term "personal information" means information that identifies you personally, alone or in combination with other information available to us; the term "Site" refers to www.BryanCollege.edu; and the terms "Bryan," "we," "us," and "our" refer to Bryan College.
By using this Site, you are consenting to the collection, use, and transfer of your personal information as described in this Policy (and any privacy notices that apply to you). If you do not consent to the collection, use and transfer of your personal information as described in this Policy (and any privacy notices that apply to you), you may not use this Site.
We respect your right to make choices about the ways we collect, use, and share your personal information. This Policy describes some of your choices. In most cases, however, we will ask you to indicate your choices at the time and on the page where you provide your personal information.
Bryan College reserves the right to update or modify this Policy and any privacy notice, at any time and without prior notice, by posting the revised version of the Policy or privacy notice on this Site. If we modify this Policy or any privacy notice, the modifications will only apply to the personal information we collect after we have posted the revised Policy or privacy notice on this Site.
This Policy was last revised on December 9, 2011 and is effective as of that date.
What Information Is Collected on this Site and How Is It Used?
When you access and use this Site, there are three ways we may collect information about you:
Does Bryan Share My Personal Data?
Bryan may share personal information collected through this Site with companies and organizations who perform certain functions on our behalf, for example, companies that provide support services to us or that help us market our products and services (such as third-party advertising companies and Universities with whom we have referral relationships). These third parties are required by contract to use the personal information we share with them only to perform services on our behalf and to treat your personal information as strictly confidential.
There are other limited circumstances in which Bryan may share or transfer the personal information in our databases to unrelated third parties. For example, we may provide personal information to a third party when we believe it is necessary to comply with U.S. Department of Education reporting requirements or the reporting requirements of accrediting bodies; to prevent or investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft; to comply with a court order or subpoena; to comply with a legal requirement; to enforce a contract; to protect the rights, property, or safety of Bryan, our users or others; to protect your vital interests. When we disclose information under these or similar circumstances, we will take appropriate steps to protect the confidentiality of your personal information.
How Does Bryan Protect Personal Information?
Although Bryan cannot guarantee against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration or destruction of personal information, we take measures to prevent such occurrences. Our servers and databases are protected by firewalls and passwords. In addition, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software to encrypt data as it travels between your computer and our servers.
Does Bryan Collect Personal Information from Children Through this Site?
Bryan does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of sixteen through this Site. If you are under sixteen, please do not give us any information that identifies you personally. If you have reason to believe that your child has provided personal information to Bryan through this Site, please contact us, and we will use reasonable efforts to delete that information from our databases.
What About Other Sites That May Be Linked To This Site?
This Site may contain links to other Web sites operated by Bryan or to Web sites that are owned and operated by unrelated third parties. For example, Bryan uses a third-party service provider to process credit card transactions. If you wish to make a payment by credit card, we will ask you to click on a link that will take you to our service provider's Web sites.
Access to Personal Information
If you have submitted your personal information via a request form and would like to review, correct, or update this information, please call us at 1-866-649-2400. We will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request.
Retention of Personal Information
Bryan retains the personal information collected on this Site as long as necessary to provide the services, products, and information you request or as permitted by applicable law. While it is in our possession, your personal information will generally be stored in Bryan databases or databases maintained by our service providers. Most, if not all, of these databases are stored on servers and storage devices located in the United States. United States data protection laws may not provide as much protection as the data protection laws in force in some other countries. If you are located in a country outside the United States, by using this Site you consent to the transfer of your personal information to the United States.
