The Way We Use Information

The payment information you provide us when placing an order is used only to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order (e.g. the processing of payment information through merchant services providers). We do not keep your payment information on file. All orders are processed securely through our third-party encryption service. Your phone number is kept in our records solely for the purpose of contacting you should we have a question about your order. We do not sell or otherwise share your phone number with outside parties, except as necessary to complete your order (i.e., for expedited shipping purposes).
Your fax number is kept in our records solely for the purpose of transmitting your certificates of completion at your request, and/or transmitting other documents relating to your enrollment at your request. We do not sell or otherwise share your fax number with outside parties.
We use return email addresses to provide email enrollment confirmations, provide certificates of completion, send course reminder information and provide email news alerts. You may elect to unsubscribe from our email news alerts at any time. Email addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not sold or otherwise shared with outside parties.
We use the information you provide about someone else only to ship exams upon your request. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete the shipment.
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 Y number of licensees filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals periodically. We use audience data to better tailor our marketing to our consumers.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above.
License numbers, names, mailing addresses, employing brokers, administrative actions and license statuses are all available as a matter of public record.
