We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women opted to receive information, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Our Commitment To Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information,
we have put in place commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
These steps include a secure socket layer (SSL) that is utilized for all communication between the customer browser and the hosted application, having
customers pay via PayPal so that credit card information is not accepted or stored on this site, and IP Limiting. These measures are designed to
protect such personal information from an unauthorized person when you are using this Site. Unfortunately data, including e-mail and electronic
communications, submitted over the Internet is subject to the risk of being accessed by unauthorized third parties. No security system is fail-safe
and we unfortunately cannot guarantee the information you provide will never be obtained by unauthorized persons. By using this website, you acknowledge
and accept this risk. There are some steps you can take that may help protect your own personal information. For example: (a) do not share your ID or password with anyone; (b) change your password regularly; (c) remember to sign off once you have submitted an application for a service online, or completed a secure online session; and (d) only provide your access ID when your browser indicates an encrypted connection, such as Secure Socket Layer (SSL), directly to the Site or to another site you have investigated and fully trust.
As between you and NeedMyTranscript, any information or material submitted to NeedMyTranscript in connection with this Site is provided on a non-confidential and non-proprietary basis. By submitting information and material through this Site, you authorize NeedMyTranscript the right to use that information
Our Commitment To Children's Privacy:
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
