There are two types of information we collect: submitted and automatic.
Submitted information consists of voluntarily provided personal contact data via our web forms, which serves to help us provide visitors’ requested services and any information we deem necessary to match visitors with education products or services. We collect, store, and share this voluntary information with schools and other third parties in order to provide you with information that matches your needs.
When you freely provide this information, you are authorizing OnlineDegreeWorld.com and its affiliated partners and schools to contact you via phone, email, or mail (in accordance with all applicable laws) about education options or related topics. To unsubscribe from any email communications, please use the opt-out link in the email, which will remove your name from that sender’s future mailings.
Automatic information: When you use our website, we receive and store anonymous information. We use this to improve our website and create a better user experience. In addition, to collect anonymous data we use for analytics, site optimization, and tailoring advertising and marketing, we use “cookies.” Examples of anonymous data include your browser and operation system versions and IP address.
By visiting our website, you are consenting that we may share our collected information with schools, affiliated companies, and third parties and you are allowing us to release any collected information to businesses providing administration services to our company.
By submitting personal information to OnlineDegreeWorld.com, you are agreeing to receive contact from us and our affiliated entities to provide you with information for education-related services and products. This submission allows us to contact you for a period of time and withdraws any rights you obtained from the Do Not Call list or other applicable law (you also omit Do Not Call requirements established by state and federal governments and may render us released from other applicable laws).
We also retain the right to release your personal information in certain legal situations and other instances required by law. We do this when we decide in good faith that we have to exercise this option to preserve our rights, ensure the safety of you or others, respond to a legal or government request, identify alleged fraud, and/or if OnlineDegreeWorld.com enters into a merger, acquisition, or sale of some or all of its assets to a third party.
- Web analytics to collect anonymous and demographic data used for web optimization and other analysis;
- “Lead auditing” to verify that submitted information is accurate, relevant, and valid;
- Tracking conversion and marketing, including, but not limited to, identifying and optimizing digital ad serving for improving user experience, relevance, and advertising effectiveness.
Should you decide to remove cookies at any time through your browser, we recommend you do so on a per-use as opposed to a one-time basis.
