THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
From Visitors to our Web Site: Our Web Site is not set up to automatically collect personally-identifiable information from each visitor to our Web Site.

We also collect certain information about your computer hardware and software. This information may include your IP address, browser type, operating system, domain name, access times and referring web site addresses. This information is used only for internal purposes by our technical support and marketing purposes. By using our Web Site and registering for the online courses, you consent to this Policy.

For example, we compile statistics that show the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Web Site and its individual pages. These aggregated statistics are used internally to improve our Web Site and for product development and marketing purposes generally. Those aggregated statistics may also be provided to advertisers and other third parties, but again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.
