Your privacy is critically important to us. At Devry Distribution, we have a few fundamental principles:
It is Devry Distributions policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Devry Distribution collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Devry Distribution’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Devry Distribution’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Devry Distribution may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Devry Distribution also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. Devry Distribution only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Devry Distribution’s websites choose to interact with DevryDistribution in ways that require Devry Distribution to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Devry Distribution gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with DevryDistribution are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Devry Distribution collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Devry Distribution. DevryDistribution does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Devry Distribution may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Devry Distribution may monitor the most popular blogs on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Devry Distribution may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Devry Distributiondoes not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Information We Collect from Other Sources
With your authorization, we may also obtain information about you from other sources. For example, if you create or log into your account through a social media service (like Google) or if you connect your website or account to a social media, we will receive information from that service (such as your username, basic profile information, and friends list) via the authorization procedures used by that service. The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Devry Distribution discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on DevryDistribution’s behalf or to provide services available at Devry Distribution’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Devry Distribution’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Devry Distribution will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Devry Distribution discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Devry Distributionbelieves in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Devry Distribution, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Devry Distribution website and have supplied your email address, DevryDistribution may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Devry Distributionand our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Devry Distribution takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Devry Distribution, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Devry Distribution goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of DevryDistribution may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to our Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives or missed spam, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives and missed spam.
