Information Collection Practices and Policies
The Refrigeration School’s website allows you to submit information requests to the campus you select. Each school asks you to provide the information requested on its information form in order to contact you. When you submit an information request using our information request form, we share the information you provide with the school. The personal information you may be requested to submit may include (but is not limited to): (1) Name, (2) Address, (3) Email Address, (4) Telephone Number, (5) High School Graduation Date.
We may use the following services to monitor the processing of your information request: Web analytics and Web hosting. We also may use a third party address verification service.
A “cookie” is a small text file that a website can place on your computer’s hard drive in order to collect information about your activities on the website. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you have the option to change your browser settings to decline them. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site. (Please also see “Web Site Tracking Software” below.)
Web Site Tracking Software
Web servers, or those of third-party vendors, utilize certain tracking software to capture your domain name address (the address of your Internet service provider) for purposes of tracking website statistics. However, we do not capture any personally identifiable information in our website tracking software. The capture of your domain name is a common practice among websites for measuring the number of hits, pages visited, and length of user session. We use this information to measure the effectiveness of the website offerings in order to service you better.
We may transfer aggregate or group data about our users for lawful purposes. Aggregate or group data is data that describes the demographics, usage or other characteristics of our users as a group without disclosing personally identifiable information. By submitting your information to us and using our website, you agree to allow us to transfer such aggregate data to third parties.
Information we maintain about you is stored in a secure manner. We use security features to collect the information you provide to us via our website in a secure manner. However, if you send us an email, that type of transmission of information is not secure, and is traveling though the Internet unprotected and can be intercepted. The security of your personal information is important to us. While perfect security on the Internet is impossible, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the information you provide to us. We restrict access to this information to employees with a need to know this information to provide you with the benefit, assistance or service you request or would like to obtain, and to those employees that need the information to do their jobs.
We adhere to all federal and state laws regarding visitors under 18 years of age. Any user under age 13 will not be allowed to register.
We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page.
