Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
In order to contact us with a request for more information or for an invitation to a sample class, a user is asked to provide his/her name and email address. To enroll in our classes, a user is required to provide his/her name, physical and email addresses, and phone number. This information is used to enroll you in a class, to be able to ship the textbook, to send you information about the classes, and to contact you if necessary. At your option, you may also provide other information (such as place of employment or IMA Chapter) about yourself, but it is not required.
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g. customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to invite you to an information session or to enroll you in a class.
Security of Your Financial Data
When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Because of our concern about your financial information, namely, your credit card data, we have contracted with PayPal, the secure, online payment system, to handle payments for our classes. We do not have access to your credit information, thus we cannot store it or use it in any way.
We use an outside company to ship textbooks, and PayPal to bill users for goods and services. These companies are not allowed to use personally identifiable information for any other purposes.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site may request information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
