Terms of Use and Privacy Policy for Use of OnlineDegreeWorld.com (Effective Date 2/5/2016)

Thank you for using OnlineDegreeWorld.com’s website to access our content and services. To understand the conditions governing use of our site, and the way in which we gather and use different types of information to provide content and related products and services, read the following document. Please note that you are agreeing to these Terms of Use and Privacy Policy by using our website.

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.

Terms of Use and Privacy Policy Changes Notification

Please refer this document occasionally to access our latest practices concerning your privacy and other important information: If we change our practices, we may revise our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy in the future.

Cookie Policy

When you use our website, you are giving your consent to our use of cookies, which are small pieces of data from a website that are stored in your web browser and used primarily for technical purposes such as web analytics (we mainly use Google Analytics, a Google, Inc. tool, to perform our web analytics). By using cookies, advertisers can match ads with users’ interests, but cookies do not contain personally identifiable information, so users remain anonymous. Known as third-party cookies, advertising cookies publish ads and track navigation on behalf of third parties.

More information about Google Analytics can be found in Google’s privacy policy: http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html

Below are some examples of how we use cookies, including through services and partnerships with vendors and third party service providers:

  • 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.

To opt out from receiving personalized ads from the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or those following the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles (and other third party advertisers and ad networks), please visit the opt-out pages on the NAI and DAA websites.

If you have any questions or concerns about this Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, please let us know via our contact form.
