How We Gather Information
In general, there are two main categories in which we collect data and information:
1) Submitted Information
On ParalegalCertificate.org, there are web forms available for the voluntary submission of personal contact information, including your name, email address, mailing address and telephone number. This information is collected to provide services that our visitors request, as well as to connect visitors with appropriate education products and services. This data is gathered, stored and shared with educational institutions and other third parties so that we can provide you with more information on programs, schools and related services.
By voluntarily submitting personal contact information to ParalegalCertificate.org, you authorize the website and its affiliated institutions and partners to contact you via phone, email, direct mail and/or text message, in accordance with all applicable laws. These messages may be related to educational options, products and services or related topics. Below, you will find more information on how this process works.
If you wish to remove yourself from the email list of either ParalegalCertificate.org or any affiliated third party, you may do so at any time by clicking on an “unsubscribe” link in the email message, thereby allowing you to opt out of any future messages. If you do take this step, you will no longer receive email messages from that particular sender.
2) Automatic Information
By using our website, it is assumed that you recognize and agree to the fact that the information we gather on our website may be shared with educational institutions, affiliated companies and other third parties to offer you relevant information on degrees and various other education products and services. In addition, you acknowledge our right to release any collected information, whether or not it is personally identifiable, to companies providing administration services to ParalegalCertificate.org. A common example of one of these companies would be the administrator of email services.
When you submit personal information to ParalegalCertificate.org, you acknowledge that you legally allow us the right to release this information — for example, to abide by a subpoena or other legal procedure, or in other instances required by law. Please note that we only exercise this option when, in good faith, we believe that it is necessary to do so in order to preserve our rights, ensure the safety of you or others, reply to a government inquiry, investigate potential fraud and/or in a situation in which ParalegalCertificate.org enters into a sale, merger or acquisition of all or some of its assets involving a third-party entity.
Through your submission of personal information to ParalegalCertificate.org, you grant permission to us, our affiliated entities (including educational institutions and third-party marketing partners) to contact you via phone, text message, email and direct mail, to provide information on various education-related services and products. Submitting your information also allows us, our partners and our vendors the right to contact you, regardless of your registration on any Do Not Call lists or protections through any applicable laws, for a certain time period.
