Privacy Policy

 

This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) is incorporated by reference into the Terms of Use (the “Terms”).  Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning scribed to them in the Terms.  This Policy deals with the collection, use, and dissemination by either Trilogy Education Services, LLC (“TES”) or Whiting School of Engineering of Johns Hopkins University (“UNIVERSITY”) of personal information from visitors to the website located at bootcamp.wse.jhu.edu (the “Site”).  Personal information is information that relates to an identified or identifiable individual.

TES and UNIVERSITY understand that the privacy of Site users is important.  We are providing this policy so that you may understand the terms and conditions associated with the provision of any personal information through the Site to either TES or UNIVERSITY. 

Please note that this Policy has been developed with the recognition that Internet technologies continue to develop and evolve rapidly, and that such changes may require changes in this Policy. Any such alterations will not affect the general commitment of TES and UNIVERSITY to the protection of our visitors’ privacy. Any changes to this Policy will be posted on this page. Your continued use of the Site constitutes acceptance of such terms and policies. This Policy should be read in conjunction with the TES Terms of Use located at bootcamp.wse.jhu.edu/terms/ which outline certain additional legal agreements between TES and users of the Site.  

If you enroll in a Boot Camp, this Policy should also be read in conjunction with your Enrollment Agreement.

 

GENERAL STATEMENT

 Certain transactions in which you choose to engage on the Site will require your submission of personal information, which may include (without limitation) requests for information about the Boot Camp, event registration and applications, and provision of education records, including records that contain information directly related to an individual enrolled in the Boot Camp and maintained by UNIVERSITY or TES. Neither TES nor UNIVERSITY will sell, swap, rent, or otherwise disclose to any third party any such personal information for purposes other than those stated in this Policy. Personal information you provide will be used only for the purpose stated in the Site or as described in this Policy.  We use your personal information to identify you and your account, provide and improve our services, protect and improve the security of the Site, communicate with you, and for our marketing purposes. To accomplish such purposes, either TES or UNIVERSITY may disclose the information to its employees, consultants, agents, service providers and educational institution partners. These third parties are only given access to your information to the extent necessary to process your information and/or provide services to TES, and they are prohibited from using or sharing your information for any other purposes. TES reserves the right to disclose your information under special circumstances, including disclosures required by law, court order or circumstances under which disclosure, in the sole discretion of TES or UNIVERSITY, is necessary to protect the legal rights, including the intellectual property rights, of that party or of its educational institution partners.  

PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED AND USE OF INFORMATION

The registration and admissions processes require users to provide personal information and preferences both online and telephonically. The user also has the option of providing additional information during this process. When you send email or other communications to TES or UNIVERSITY, we may retain the communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services. Except as set forth in the General Statement above, personal information that you provide through the Site will be utilized only for the purpose for which it has been requested.

TES instructors may ask for information, such as your email address, from you to help facilitate the provision of a course and to communicate about course materials.

TES does not direct the Site to, nor do we knowingly collect any personal information from, children under the age of 16.

USAGE INFORMATION COLLECTED AND USE OF INFORMATION

TES or UNIVERSITY may collect information that is automatically generated when you visit the Site, such as data about usage and service operation. 

System Information, IP Addresses, and Referrers

When you connect the Site, we may record the numerical Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using, information about your browser and operating system, date and time of access and the internet address and page which linked you to the Site. TES or UNIVERSITY may use such information to help diagnose problems with a server, to administer and improve the Site, to generate aggregate statistical reports that analyze general user information and demographics, and to optimize the marketing efforts of either TES or UNIVERSITY.

If you submit identifying information to the Site — e.g., to join a mailing list or to establish user credentials to access registration-only pages — this server log information may be linked to you, in which case either TES or UNIVERSITY may make internal use of the resulting information set as described in this Policy.

TES and UNIVERSITY ordinarily do not disclose to third parties site usage by individual IP addresses, but may do so in very limited circumstances when complying with law or legal process, improving the Site or related marketing efforts, or in monitoring and improving the security of either the TES or the UNIVERSITY network.

Cookies

“Cookies” are small files which may be stored on your computer during your use of the Site and contain data about your use of the Site. We use session cookies (which expire when you close your browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them or after a specified expiry date) to understand more about your activity on the Site. A cookie may also be used to deliver customizable and personalized services and information by tracking which pages a user has already visited. Cookies may also be used to track session information, such as pages visited, number of visits or duration of visit, which will help to improve Site format and content.

The Site uses cookies and pixels to help manage online advertising. These cookies may also be placed through the Site by an ad management partner.  You may be able to set your browser to refuse cookies or to alert you when one is being sent.

EXTERNAL LINKS

The Site may contain links to other independently run websites that are not controlled by TES or UNIVERSITY and are not covered by this Policy. TES and UNIVERSITY are not responsible for the privacy practices, security or content of such websites.

SECURITY PRECAUTIONS

The Site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information received through the Site as described in this Policy. Unfortunately, due to the nature of Internet communications, no data transmission over the Internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. While TES and UNIVERSITY remain committed to protecting the privacy of Site users, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once TES or UNIVERSITY receive your transmission, we each make our best effort to ensure the security of your information in our systems by using what we believe to be appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure your information and to prevent unauthorized access. However, TES and UNIVERSITY make no representations regarding the efficacy of such measures.

If you have any questions about this Policy, the practices of the Site, or your dealings with the Site, please contact TES at bootcamp@jhu.edu.

This Policy may be changed from time to time without advance notice. If such changes are made, the modified Policy will be posted here with the date of modification.
