We may share de-identified and/or aggregate information for quality improvement purposes, including improvement of our educational services. Such data is anonymized so no individual is identifiable.

We will not sell or distribute personal information collected through the Website with unrelated third parties. We may disclose your personal information to third parties who we have engaged to provide us with services in connection with the Website. In each case, we will ensure that these third parties have agreed not to use or disclose your personal information except to provide us such services in connection with the Website. Please note that we may be required to disclose personal information in response to a subpoena, court order or other legal mechanism.

We will retain your personal information for as long as your Website account is active or as needed to provide you with use of the Website, or to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
If you wish to withdraw your consent for the collection, use or disclosure of your personal information, please contact our Privacy Officer at the contact particulars below. Your withdrawal of consent will be applied on a go-forward basis.

Security Measures and Transmissions over the Internet
We use commercially reasonable security measures to safeguard the security of the Website in order to prevent access, loss, interception or alteration by unauthorized parties. Such security measures can include physical security measures, organizational controls on access to information, and electronic safeguards such as passwords, firewalls and SSL level encryption, where and as appropriate. We also require our partners, suppliers and agents to implement similarly reasonable security measures to safeguard the security of the Website.
While we use commercially reasonable security measures to safeguard the security of the Website, the transmission of data over the Internet or other publicly accessible networks is inherently insecure, and is subject to possible unauthorized access, loss, interception or alteration while in transit. Accordingly, we do not assume any liability for any damage you may experience or costs you may incur as a result of any transmissions over the Internet or other publicly accessible networks, and in no event will the information you provide to us result in any liability to you on our part in the event that such information is inadvertently released by us or accessed by third parties without our consent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent that you are able to access the information of third parties through the Website, we do not grant you any right or license to use such information.
