Our Commitment to Privacy
We never use or share your identifiable personal information provided to us online in any way without providing you an opportunity to prohibit its use or disclosure.
To make this notice easy to find, we make it available from the bottom of each Web page and at every point where identifiable personal information may be requested.
What Information Do We Collect?
We collect information at several different points on our Web site. Personal information is collected when using our online contact form, booking an appointment, or enrolling in our programs, courses and services, and others. Individuals are free to use this Web site without participating in any electronic submission that requests your personal information, and thereby avoid providing identifiable personal information.
When you visit our Web site, our Web server automatically collects a limited amount of information essential for the operation and security of our Web site. Some of this information gathered (e.g., the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Web site, and the Web sites visited just before and just after our Web site) does not identify who you are. Other information, such as your Internet domain name or your Internet protocol address may identify you. The extent of personal identification may depend on the “naming standards” followed by your Internet Service Provider. In addition, our advertisers and ad serving companies may also use small pieces of code called “cookies’, “web beacons”, “spotlights” or “clear gifs” to determine which advertisements and promotions users have seen and how users responded to them.
When you voluntarily send us electronic mail, we will keep a confidential record of this information so that we can respond to you.
We collect information that personally identifies you only when you provide it to us by filling in an online form or over the telephone or online chat. This information may include your email address, name, postal address, and telephone number. All identifiable personal information that you provide will be kept confidential.
Creating an Online Account
In order to use some of the services provided by our Web site, including online assessment testing, you may be required to create an online account. In order to create an online account, you will be required to provide your email address and choose a username and password. We use this information to establish your online account to provide you with the services on our Web site for which you have expressed interest.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
We do not share your identifiable personal information with third parties (except as described below), public bodies or individuals unless such sharing 1) is necessary to provide you with a service that you have requested; or 2) is required or authorized by law; or 3) compelling circumstances exist that affect the health or safety of any person. We may have third party service providers perform services relating to the operation and maintenance of our Web site or for the purpose of sending you information by way of an electronic newsletter or through regular mail (“Third Party Service Providers”). We may share your identifiable personal information with these Third Party Service Providers as is reasonably necessary for the purpose of providing their services to OMNI College.
What Are Cookies And How Do We Use Them?
A “cookie” is information that is transferred from a web site’s server to your computer’s browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive. This information is then available to the Web site’s server when you return to that site using the same browser. This information can be used to identify the user of the browser visiting the site and record, for example, preferences and usage in general.
How Is My Information Used?
The way we collect, use and disclose identifiable personal information complies with the purpose for which it is collected, used and disclosed and/or with applicable laws and regulations.
We use your identifiable personal information to provide the services you have requested or to contact you with respect to your enrolment with our programs, courses and/or services. We will also use your identifiable personal information for the purpose of providing electronic exchanges of information as requested by you. We use this information to complete such submission and ensuing action or response.
The personal information that we collect will only be used by authorized OMNI College staff to fulfill the purpose for which it was originally collected or for a use consistent with that purpose.
Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Web site, new services, promotions and other information we think you may find valuable, or if you have registered to receive an electronic newsletter. If you do not wish to receive these notifications, we offer the opportunity to be excluded from such distributions by following clear and concise instructions for removal, or you may unsubscribe at the bottom of any and all communications such as electronic newsletters and special offers.
Privacy Practices of Other Web Sites
