This policy sets out how the ACRE School collects, holds and uses personal information collected from individuals in the conduct of our business.
Protecting Personal Information
All personal information collected from individuals as a result of our operations will be protected as an essential part of the relationship we wish to establish with our students and professionals.
Information That the Company Holds
In the normal course of business activities, the company will collect personal information, including “sensitive information”. Personal information may include an individual’s name, social security number, address, date of birth, contact details, occupation, and professional memberships. We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
The company will use personal information to
Provide its services, particularly those associated with education
Manage its internal business operations
Keep students and professionals informed
ACRE School will disclose information only for the purpose for which it was collected, and where appropriate, after obtaining the necessary consent from the individual. Information may be disclosed for other purposes, with the specific consent of the individual to do so.
We will not share your personal information with anyone under any circumstances unless directed by law.
