Generally we collect two categories of information:
- Submitted information: To provide the services our visitors request, we provide web forms for the voluntary submission of personal contact information (such as name, telephone number, mailing address and email address), and any other information we require to match our visitors to an education product or service. The information you submit is collected, stored and shared with schools and other third parties as necessary to bring you information about schools, programs and education related services. By your submission of information, you authorize BachelorsDegreeOnline.com and our affiliated schools and partners to contact you by telephone, text messages, email or mail regarding education options or related topics, in accordance with all applicable laws. More information on this and other important topics can be found below. You will be afforded the ability to unsubscribe through a link in any email communications from us, a school, or third party, at which time you will be immediately removed from that sender’s mailing list.
Utilizing our website assumes your acknowledgement and agreement that information collected on our website may be shared with schools, affiliated companies, and third parties as a way to provide you with information about degrees, programs and other education related products and services. Additionally, you acknowledge and agree with our retaining the right to release any collected information as needed, including personally identifiable information, to businesses providing our company with administration services such as an email service delivery, for example.
Submitting personal information to BachelorsDegreeOnline.com means you are granting permission for us, our affiliated entities such as schools, third party marketing partners and vendors, to contact you by way of telephone, text messages, email, or mail as a means of providing information, which includes marketing, for education related products and services. In addition, performing this action grants us, our affiliates, and partners and vendors the right, for a period of time, to contact you and means you relinquish any rights granted to you by the Do Not Call list or other applicable law. Effectively, you are omitted from Do Not Call requirements established by state and federal governments through your submission. Additionally, we may be exempt from other applicable laws.
We also retain the right, in instances required by law, to release your personal information, for example to abide by a subpoena or other legal procedure. We enact this right when, in good faith, we believe it is necessary to preserve our rights, ensure the safety of you or others, explore alleged fraud and/or to reply to a government or legal request. We may also exercise this right in the instance that BachelorsDegreeOnline.com is merging, acquisitioning, or selling some or all of its assets to a third party.
