How We Use Automatic Information
When you interact with AccreditedOnlineColleges.org, we use “cookies” to receive and store certain pieces of anonymous data, including your web browser, operating system, and IP address. Like most websites, we primarily use this information to make improvements to our site and create a better user experience. We collect this data for analytics, site optimization, and tailoring advertising efforts.
Though cookies only gather anonymous data, you still have the right to remove them at any time. Depending on your browser, you may need to remove them every time you browse the web.
You can opt out of receiving personalized ads from companies who are members of the Network Advertising Initiative or those who follow the Digital Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles by visiting the opt-out pages on their respective websites.
By using our website, we assume you acknowledge and agree that we can share the data we collect with schools, affiliated companies, and third parties in order to provide you with relevant information regarding education-related products and services. You also acknowledge and agree with our right to release any collected information, personal or otherwise, as needed, to businesses that provide administrative services to our company.
When you submit personal information to AccreditedOnlineColleges.org, you grant permission to us and our affiliated entities to contact you via telephone, text message, email, or mail regarding education-related products and services. This action relinquishes any rights granted to you by state and federal governments under the Do Not Call list and other applicable laws.
By submitting your personal information on our website, you allow us the right to release it in order to abide by a subpoena or other legal procedure as required by law. We exercise this option in good faith when we believe it is necessary to preserve our rights, ensure the safety of you or others, investigate alleged fraud, reply to a legal request, and/or if AccreditedOnlineColleges.org enters into a merger, sale, or acquisition of some or all of its assets to a third party.
Some of the schools featured on our website are partner institutions. When users choose to receive information about certain programs offered by these schools, we may be compensated. Any such promotional material on our site is clearly labeled as “Sponsored,” “Featured,” or something similar.
Any information about these schools, including program availability, institutional aid, and graduation rates, comes directly from that institution and has not been independently verified by our team. We cannot ensure that all of the details surrounding these schools’ programs are completely accurate as of the most recent academic year.
