VLACS’s Website collects information in two different forms: non-personally identifiable information gathered from the navigation of the Website and voluntarily provided personal information provided by users.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
When users visit VLACS’s Website, VLACS may track, collect, and aggregate non-personal information indicating, among other things, which pages of the Website were visited, the number of visitors received on a specific page, which pages are visited most often, and other “usage data". Such information may include the user’s IP address, the name of the referring Website, which pages a user visited on the Website, and how much time spent on each page. This information may be used to monitor and improve the Website.
Voluntary Personally Identifiable Information
The Website has opportunities for users to voluntarily provide information that can be used to identify a specific user, including,but not limited to a user’s first and last name, email address, and date of birth, on pages such as the “Contact Us” page. The Website does not collect personal information about individuals except when individuals provide information on a voluntary basis. Such information may also be collected when a user registers for online courses, participates in online forums and chatrooms, participates in online tests and assessments, or receives other services on or through the Website.
VLACS may use personally identifiable information to provide educational services to its students who enroll in online courses and to otherwise support its students with regard to matters such as testing, academic progress, attendance, customer service, or for health or safety purposes. VLACS will use or share personally identifiable information if required to do so by law, such as a court order, or permitted to do so for law enforcement purposes or to protect VLACS’ legal rights.
To the extent permitted by applicable state and federal law, VLACS may use personally identifiable information to provide its users with information about new products and services available through VLACS .
Message Boards and Chat Rooms
As a part of its online courses, VLACS may offer message boards, chat rooms, and other communication tools for students to participate in as a part of their education. Please be aware that postings made using these tools may be viewed by other students or VLACS staff members. As such, VLACS cannot guarantee the security of such information that is disclosed through message boards, chat rooms, and other similar communications tools. VLACS reserves the right, but not the obligation, to monitor the content of these communications.
VLACS considers the confidentiality and security of its users’ information to be of utmost importance. As such, VLACS will use commercially reasonable efforts to keep its users’ information private. Although VLACS takes reasonable measures to protect personally identifiable information, VLACS does not guarantee the unconditional security of such information, nor can VLACS guarantee that voluntarily provided information from users will not be intercepted while being transmitted to VLACS over the internet.
