You do not need to provide any personal information if you simply want to browse our website and learn about our products and services. When we ask for your personal information, it is so that we can provide a product or service to you and to communicate with you about our products and services. For example, we will ask for your personal information if you choose to order products from us or if you would like to sign up for our newsletter. We may also collect information about you in connection with certain customizable tools and features, surveys, or contests that we may operate from time to time on our website. We may also offer features that will allow you to sign up friends or family to receive information from our site, such as newsletters or wish lists. It will always be your choice whether you want to provide individually identifiable information to take advantage of these features.
When we collect information during your visits (either on an anonymous or individually identifiable basis), it is generally so that we can (1) provide goods and services; (2) monitor and analyze visitor activity on our website and improve the features and operation of our website; (3) develop a knowledge base regarding our website visitors and their preferences; (4) identify and provide you with information about products in which you may be interested; and (5) develop new products and services. Based on your activity on our site, we may offer you information about those products of ours in which we think you are interested. We may correlate non-identifiable information with identifiable information, and if we do, we will protect that information like any other identifiable information that we collect through this website. Except as otherwise noted in this policy, we do not share your personal information with businesses who are not part of KAPLANMD.
If you provide us with your personal information, we may use it for marketing our products and services. For example, if you sign up for our newsletter, we will add your name to our mailing list and send you our newsletter that will provide you with information about our products. We may allow you to sign up friends or family members to receive our newsletter and will add them to our mailing list as well. We will not sell your information, or that of your friends or family members, to third parties for their marketing purposes.
In order to provide our services, we may share information with our business partners. For example, if you purchase goods through this website, like any other retailer we will have to provide your credit card information to our credit card processor and authenticator for payment purposes, and your name and address to the company that ships our merchandise.
We may elect to disclose individually identifiable information without prior notice in response to law enforcement activity or other governmental request; to respond to subpoenas, court orders or administrative agency requests for information; to enforce our contract or property rights; to protect ourselves or others; or when required or otherwise permitted by law. For example, we may share information to reduce the risk of fraud or if someone uses or attempts to use our site for illegal reasons. Information we collect may also be transferred in connection with any sale or merger of the company or any division or business line of the company to which the information relates.
KAPLANMD uses commercially reasonable means to protect the integrity of the website and the confidentiality of collected data. Thus, if you place an order with us, we will use Secure Sockets Layer encryption to protect the security of the transmission and will store your credit card information using encryption and unique encryption keys for each transaction. We limit access to information that we collect about our visitors to employees who have a need to use the information. Employees who violate these policies may be subject to discipline.
