Privacy Policy

PRIVACY STATEMENT

This Privacy Statement deals with the collection, use, and dissemination by either Trilogy Education Services, Inc. (“TES”) or Harvard Extension School (“HES,” a division of Harvard University) of personal information requested from visitors to the website located at www.bootcamp.extension.harvard.edu (the “Site”). Personal information is information associated with a user’s name or personal identity.

TES and HES understand that the privacy of Site users is important.  We are providing this policy so that you may understand the terms and conditions associated with the provision of any personal information through the Site to either TES or HES.

Please note that this policy has been developed with the recognition that Internet technologies continue to develop and evolve rapidly, and that such changes may require changes in this Privacy Policy. Any such alterations will not affect the general commitment of TES and HES to the protection of our visitors’ privacy. Any changes to this Privacy Policy will be posted on this page. Your continued use of the Site constitutes acceptance of such terms and policies. This policy should be read in conjunction with the TES Terms of Use located at www.bootcamp.extension.harvard.edu/terms which outline certain additional legal agreements between TES and users of the Site.  

If you enroll in The Coding Bootcamp at Harvard Extension School, provided by Trilogy Education Services,  Inc., this policy should also be read in conjunction with your Enrollment Agreement.

 

GENERAL STATEMENT

You may visit the Site without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. However, certain transactions in which you choose to engage on the Site will require your submission of personal information, which may include (without limitation) requests for information, event registration and applications, and education records. As a general rule, neither TES nor HES will sell, swap, rent, or otherwise disclose to any third party any such personal information for purposes other than those stated in the Site. Such information will be used only for the purpose stated in the Site or as described in this Privacy Policy. To accomplish such purposes, either TES or HES may disclose the information to its employees, consultants, agents, service providers and educational institution partners who have a legitimate need to know the information. Both also reserve the right to disclose this information under special circumstances, including disclosures required by law, court order or circumstances under which disclosure, in the sole discretion of TES or HES, is necessary to protect the legal rights, including the intellectual property rights, of that party or of its educational institution partners.

PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED AND USE OF INFORMATION

The registration and admissions processes require users to provide personal information and preferences both online and telephonically. The user also has the option of providing additional information during this process. When you send email or other communications to TES or HES, we may retain the communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services. Except as set forth in the General Statement above, personal information that you provide through the Site will be utilized only for the purpose for which it has been requested.

TES instructors may ask for information, such as your email address, from you to help facilitate the provision of a course and to communicate about course materials.

TES and HES do not intentionally collect personally identifiable information about children age 13 or younger through the Site. If you suspect that we have personal, identifying information about your child, please notify us immediately so that we may take appropriate action.

USAGE INFORMATION COLLECTED AND USE OF INFORMATION

TES or HES may collect other information about users of the Site that is not connected with any specific personal identity, such as data about usage and service operation. The following summarizes the types of information that we may collect.

System Information, IP Addresses, and Referrers

When you connect the Site, a web server may record the numerical Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using, information about your browser and operating system, date and time of access and the internet address and page which linked you to the Site. TES or HES may use such information to help diagnose problems with a server, to administer and improve the Site, to generate aggregate statistical reports that analyze general user information and demographics and to optimize the marketing efforts of either.

If you submit identifying information to the Site — e.g., to join a mailing list or to establish user credentials to access registration-only pages — server log information may be linked to the information you have disclosed in which case either TES or HES make internal use of the resulting information set.

In addition, TES and HES ordinarily do not disclose to third parties site usage by individual IP addresses, but may do so in very limited circumstances when complying with law or legal process, working with consultants assisting in fixing or improving the Site or related marketing efforts, or in monitoring and improving the security of either the TES or the HES network.

Cookies

Cookies are unique bits of computer data that many major websites will transfer to your computer the first time that you visit. Cookies are stored on your hard drive and may be later accessed by the website to track prior usage. The Site uses cookies and pixels to help manage online advertising. These cookies may also be placed through the Site by an ad management partner. The information collected and shared through cookies is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address.

A cookie may also be used to deliver customizable and personalized services and information by tracking which pages a user has already visited. Cookies may also be used to track session information, such as pages visited, number of visits or duration of visit, which will help to improve Site format and content.

You may be able to set your browser to refuse cookies or to alert you when one is being sent. It is likely that some portions of the Site will not operate properly if cookies are disabled.

 

EXTERNAL LINKS

The Site may contain links to other independently run websites that are not controlled by TES or HES and are not covered by this privacy policy. TES and HES are not responsible for the privacy practices, security or content of such websites.

SECURITY PRECAUTIONS

The Site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information received through the Site as described in this policy. Unfortunately, due to the nature of Internet communications, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. While TES and HES remain committed to protecting the privacy of Site users, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once TES or HES receive your transmission, we each make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems by using secure technology, privacy protection controls, and restrictions on employee access. However, TES and HES make no representations regarding the efficacy of such measures.

If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of the Site, or your dealings with the Site, please contact us at bootcamp@trilogyed.com.

This Privacy Policy may be changed from time to time without advance notice. If such changes are made, the modified policy will be posted here with the date of modification.
