We allow you to decide whether you wish to provide us with Personally Identifiable Information. Accordingly, we have structured our Web Site so that you may visit us, and review a range of information regarding our online training, hands-on classes, and related information, goods, and services without revealing your identity or providing any Personally Identifiable Information.
One of our goals in creating this Web site, however, is to identify and establish contact with individuals interested in information regarding our online training, hands-on classess and related information, goods, and services. Therefore, as you become more involved in our Site, you may wish to register and provide us with Personally Identifiable Information.
We will use Personally Identifiable Information you give us to provide you with information regarding our classes, goods and services. We may also use Personally identifiable Information you give us to respond to questions and comments from you. You are free to decline such contact. You are also free at any time to opt-out of receiving email and other information we may send to you by following the directions set out below in the “How To Obtain Access to Information You Have Provided, And How To Remove Your Information From Our Database” Section.
We will not sell or disclose any Personally Identifiable Information you provide at our Site to any unrelated third parties without your express permission. By “unrelated third parties" we mean anyone who is not involved in running the HVAC Training School Site, or not involved in fulfilling requests you make at our Site.
To obtain certain materials from our Site, we ask that you become a registered user. Our registration forms will specify the information you must provide in order to use this particular feature, and the information you may, at your option, choose to provide or withhold.
If you choose to participate in surveys or questionnaires which from time to time we may post at our Site, we may ask that, in addition to providing your responses, you also provide Personally Identifiable Information. If we link or combine in any way your responses with your Personally Identifiable Information, we will treat the combined information as Personally Identifiable Information. If we separate your responses from any Personally Identifiable Information, such that a third party reviewing your responses would be unable to link the responses to you, the responses will be treated as Aggregate Information. Our obligations concerning and permitted uses of Aggregate Information are set out below in the “Information That Does Not Identify You: Aggregate Information” Section.
Combining Aggregate Information and Personally Identifiable Information
We collect Aggregate Information about your use of our Site through cookies and similar Internet technologies. "Cookies" are small text files that a Web site can use to recognize repeat users, to facilitate the user’s ongoing access to and use of the site, and to compile Aggregate Information to improve the site. Cookies work as follows: a Web site will send a cookie to your browser that uniquely associates your computer with information stored at the site. Your browser places the cookie in its cookies file. When you next access that site on your computer, the site recognizes the cookie, makes the stored information available, and adds new information based on the present visit.
Because information we collect through cookies and similar Internet technologies does not personally identify you, we treat all such information as Aggregate Information.
An address known as an "Internet Protocol" (IP) address is associated with your computer’s connection to the Internet. We use your computer’s IP address to maintain contact with you as you navigate through our site. We may also use your computer’s IP address to provide you with personalized content. Similar to cookies, your computer’s IP address by itself does not identify you personally. We treat IP addresses, therefore, as Aggregate Information. If your IP address is combined with any Personally Identifiable Information, the combined information will be treated as Personally Identifiable Information.
How To Obtain Access to Information You Have Provided, And How To Remove Your Information From Our Database
We allow you at any time to update, correct, or delete Personally Identifiable Information you have provided us. Accordingly, upon your request, and to the extent your request does not compromise our privacy policies, we will provide you with access to Personally Identifiable Information you have previously provided to us, and allow you to update and correct this Information. If you wish to update or revise this Information, please click on the “My Profile” button on our Web Site, and follow the directions provided. We will update or revise your Personally Identifiable Information in the manner you request.
In addition, we provide you with the ability to decline (“opt-out of”) certain mailings and other materials we may offer. For these materials, you will be able to specify whether you wish to opt-out by clicking on the “My Profile” button, and following directions provided.
Because Aggregate Information does not personally identify our users, we do not provide our users with access to Aggregate Information, and users may not update, revise, or delete any Aggregate Information.
We have put in place security systems designed to prevent unauthorized disclosure of information you provide to us. These systems are structured to deter and prevent hackers and others from accessing this information. Due to the nature of Internet communications and evolving technologies, however, we cannot provide and expressly disclaim assurance that the information you provide us will remain free from loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties who, despite our efforts, obtain unauthorized access.
Our Site is not directed at children, and we will not accept or request personal information from individuals we know to be under 13. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, if we learn that a child under 13 has provided us with Personally Identifiable Information, we will delete this information from our databases, in accordance with our deletion policy, set out above in the “How To Obtain Access to Information You Have Provided, And How To Remove Your Information From Our Database” Section.
For more information regarding a child under the age of 13 providing personal information to a Web site, see the Federal Trade Commission’s site explaining the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/edcams/kidzprivacy/.
To give you access to more information regarding online training, hands-on classes, related goods, services, and information, we have included on the Web Site certain links to other sites. We provide these links as a convenience, and HVAC Training School does not endorse the content or services offered by, or the privacy policies in place at these other sites.
