Terms of Use and Privacy Policy for Use of OnlinePhDPrograms.com, Effective February 15, 2016

Thank you for visiting OnlinePhDPrograms.com. OnlinePhDPrograms.com gathers and applies different types of information in order to bring you relevant content on related products and services.

Use of our website assumes you agree to these Terms of Use and Privacy Policy and you acknowledge, and agree, that information we collect on our website may be shared with schools, affiliated companies, and third parties.

We share information to help you. We want to pass on degree information, as well as inform you of other programs and education-related products and services.

Your visit to OnlinePhDPrograms.com is acknowledgement and agreement that we have the right to release any collected information — personally identifiable or otherwise — as needed, to businesses providing administration services like email service delivery.

When you submit personal information to us, you give us permission, along with our affiliated entities, including schools, third-party marketing partners and vendors, to contact you.

The methods of contact include telephone, text messages, email, or mail. The information is, marketing and otherwise, for education-related services and products.

Submitting personal information relinquishes any rights granted to you by the Do Not Call list or other applicable laws for a period of time. You also effectively omit Do Not Call requirements established by state and federal governments and may also provide exemption for us from other applicable laws.

OnlinePhDPrograms.com also can release this personal information for legal matters, such as to abide by a subpoena or other legal procedure, or in other instances required by law. This can be done when, in good faith, we believe it is necessary to preserve our rights, ensure the safety of you or others, explore alleged fraud, or to reply to a government or legal request, and/or in the instance that OnlinePhDPrograms.com enters into a merger, acquisition, or sale of some or all of its assets to a third party.

There are two kinds of information that we collect. The first is submitted information, which is related to the information you voluntarily submit when filling out a contact form. This includes name, telephone number, mailing address and email address.

If you receive any email communications from us, a school, or third party that you do not want, you can unsubscribe at any time. You can opt out by clicking the unsubscribe button in the email.

The second kind of information we collect is automatic information. This is the anonymous information that we receive when you interact with our website. We use this information to make improvements and create a more relevant user experience. We use “cookies” (read more on this below) to collect anonymous data for the purpose of analytics, website optimization and for tailored advertising and marketing purposes. This anonymous data includes, but is not limited to, your browser version, operating system version, and your IP address. We perform our web analytics mainly using Google Analytics, a Google, Inc. tool. Learn more about Google’s privacy policy here.

Cookies are small pieces of data sent from a website and stored in the user’s web browser, commonly for technical purposes such as web analytics. By using this website, you acknowledge and consent to our use of cookies.

Advertising cookies allow advertisers to make ads more relevant to the user’s interests. They do not contain personally identifiable information. Users remain anonymous. Advertising cookies, sometimes referred to as third-party cookies, track navigation and publish ads on behalf of third parties.

We use cookies, some of which are through services and partnerships with vendors and third party service providers. We use cookies for web analytics, to capture demographic and other anonymous data for web optimization and other analysis. We also use cookies for “lead auditing,” whereby we ensure the accuracy, relevancy and validity of submitted information. And finally, we use them for tracking marketing and conversion, including, but not limited to, targeting and optimizing digital ad serving for improving relevance, user experience, and advertising effectiveness.

You can remove cookies at any time by changing the settings on your web browser. You may have to do this periodically, instead of just once.

You can also opt out of receiving personalized ads from members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or from those who follow the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles, as well as from other third party advertisers and ad networks. You may unsubscribe by visiting the opt-out pages on the NAI website and DAA website.

Please keep in mind we may perform revisions to our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy in the future. Therefore we recommend that you reread this document periodically for the most up to date practices concerning your privacy and other important information. If you have questions, please contact us via our contact form.
