KPS Privacy Policy

Last Revised: December, 2006

This is the Privacy Policy for the Web sites of the Kaplan Professional Schools ("KPS Sites"). The Kaplan Professional Schools include the Anthony Schools, Jones College, Dearborn Real Estate Institute, Leonard-Hawes Real Estate School, Kaplan Real Estate Schools, Kaplan Professional Schools Nevada, Southern Nevada School of Real Estate, Kaplan Professional Schools, and PROSOURCE Educational Services (collectively "Kaplan Professional Schools" or "KPS"). The Kaplan Professional Schools are all part of the family of Kaplan companies, which are owned and operated by Kaplan, Inc. ("Kaplan"). This Privacy Policy, which is part of the KPS Sites User Agreement, governs your use of the KPS Sites.

Your privacy is very important to us and we are committed to protecting it. We understand that our site visitors and registered users need to be in control of their personal data. This Privacy Policy explains how and why we collect personal data from you and how we use it. Our Privacy Policy is designed to ensure that you are aware of how your personal data is being used and to provide you with choices about that use.

By visiting any of the KPS Sites or submitting your personally identifiable information to us, you accept the terms described in this Privacy Policy. From time to time we may modify these rules. We will notify you of any significant change by posting a notice on our home page and information collection forms. Your continued use of the KPS Sites after any modification indicates your agreement to the new terms.

Collection and Use of Personal Data

Personally Identifying Information. When you register for our classes, make purchases from us, subscribe to our newsletters, fill out a survey, or request information from the KPS Sites, we will use our registration screens and online forms to collect personally identifying information such as your name, address, e-mail address, and credit card information ("personal data"). We may also collect some or all of this personal data from you through our print enrollment forms, or if your employer offers one of our courses. In addition, if you send us an e-mail or communicate with us offline, we may collect the personal data that you voluntarily provide us at that time.

We may use your personal data in the following ways:

  • for the purpose for which you specifically provided the personal data, for example to provide one of our classes, or to deliver the results of class exams and assignments, or to respond to a specific inquiry;

  • to send surveys or questionnaires so that we can learn more about our customers' needs and interests;

  • to provide you with information via email about new products or services that we think might interest you.

Anonymous Information. You can visit most pages on the KPS Sites without giving us any personal data. Your visit may automatically provide us with anonymous data that is not linked to your personal data, such as your IP (Internet Protocol) address, browser type, operating system, domain name, access times, and referring web site addresses. Some parts of the KPS Sites use cookies and embedded pixel technologies to facilitate your use of the Web site and to track general traffic. You can learn more about these anonymous data collection devices in the section entitled Cookies, below.

We use a service provider to track and analyze non-personal data, such as usage and volume statistical information from site visitors. This anonymous data will not be linked to your personal data. We use your anonymous data to obtain general statistics regarding the use of the KPS Sites and its specific Web pages and to evaluate how our visitors use and navigate our Web site on an aggregate basis.

In an effort to provide you with the most relevant Web site content and marketing materials, we may also use embedded pixel technologies to help track site usage and response to our marketing campaigns. Again, the anonymous information we capture through this mechanism is not linked to your personal data.

Sharing with Third Parties

If your employer is providing our courses to you, then upon your employer's request, we will provide your class attendance record and exam results. Otherwise, we share your personal data only with service providers who help us to run the KPS Sites or to fulfill your requests. These service providers are restricted from using your personal data in any way other than for the service they are providing. Other than these service providers, KPS does not share your personal data with any other third parties.

We may also need to disclose your personal data to third parties if we, in our sole discretion, believe it is required by law, to enforce our User Agreement or this Privacy Policy, or in connection with a sale or transfer of some or all of our assets in the KPS Sites.

We may share your contact information with trusted affiliates who will adhere to the terms of this privacy policy, in order to provide you with information via email about co-branded products and services that we think might interest you. Your information will not be sold, shared or used for any other purpose outside of these companies.

Other than these limited exceptions, KPS will not share your personal data without your permission.

Transfer to the United States

If you are located outside of the United States, please note that the personal data you provide to us will be transferred to the United States. Whenever you submit any personal data to us, you consent to this transfer.

Your Ability To Choose

You can let us know that you do not wish to receive any further information from us by clicking the unsubscribe link in the emails we send you, or by updating your contact preferences online at http://www.home-inspect.com/preferences/updatepreferences.asp.

Please note that this opt-out mechanism does not apply to email that we send you to (i) confirm your registration in one of our courses, (ii) confirm any other purchases from us, or (iii) provide you with information regarding your attendance or exam results.

Cookies

We use cookies to allow you to move quickly through our site, to allow you to take advantage of some of the KPS Sites' special features, and to collect information about your use of the KPS Sites. A cookie is a string of information that is sent by a Web site and stored on your hard drive or temporarily in your computer's memory. Cookies are small files and won't pose any significant disk-space concerns. Some cookies used by KPS may remain on the user's computer after they leave the web site, but most are set to expire within 30-365 days.

Cookies benefit you by creating a more streamlined login process, keeping track of shopping cart additions and preserving order information between sessions. As we enable further customization of the site, cookies will help in assuring that the information provided to you will be relevant to your needs. You can disable our cookies using the cookie-menu on your Web browser, but doing so will prevent you from taking advantage of customization and certain security features. To learn more about cookies and browser functionality, search for "cookies" in the help function of your browser.

Security

KPS is concerned with the security of your personal data. To keep that data secure, we restrict unauthorized access through protective policies, procedures, and technical measures. In addition, KPS uses standard security protocols and mechanisms to transmit sensitive data such as credit card details.

Links to Other Web Sites

The KPS Sites may contain links to other Web sites, including other Kaplan company sites. This Privacy Policy covers only the KPS Sites and not other sites - including other Kaplan Web sites. Be sure to look for the privacy policies that govern your use of these other Web sites.
