Generally our information is collected in two categories:
- Submitted information: Web forms are provided by us for the voluntary submission of personal contact information (such as name, telephone number, mailing address and email address) to provide user-requested services, as well any other information required in matching you to an education product or service. Information included in your submission is collected, stored and shared, as necessary, with schools and other third parties to provide you with information about schools, programs and education related services. Your information submission authorizes Psychology.org, along with our affiliated schools and partners, to contact you in accordance with all applicable laws, including by telephone, text messages, email or mail in regards to education options or related topics. See below for more on submitted information and other important topics. Upon receipt of any email communications from us, a school, or third party, you will be afforded the opportunity to unsubscribe via link in the body of the email, which ensures you will be removed from further mailings from that sender.
You acknowledge and agree, by utilizing our website, that information collected on our website may be shared with schools, affiliated companies, and third parties, and is intended to provide you with information about degrees, programs and other education related products and services. Your use of our website also assumes you acknowledge and agree with our right to release any collected information, including personally identifiable information, as needed, to businesses providing our company with administration services, such as an email service delivery.
By submitting personal information to Psychology.org, you grant us, our affiliated entities, including schools, third party marketing partners and vendors permission to contact you, including via telephone, text messages, email, or mail for purposes of providing marketing and other information for education related products and services. This action also grants us, our affiliates, and partners and vendors, the right to contact you for a period of time. Additionally, you relinquish any rights granted to you by the Do Not Call list or other applicable law. Your submission is effectively an omission to Do Not Call requirements established by state and federal governments and may exempt us from related applicable laws.
Additionally, we retain the right to release your personal information, for example to abide by a subpoena or other legal procedure, or in other instances required by law. We exercise this right, in good faith, in order to preserve our rights, ensure the safety of you or others, explore alleged fraud, to reply to a government or legal request, and/or if ans when Psychology.org is in a position to merge with, acquisition, or sell some or all of its assets to a third party.
