If you are a resident of the State of California you have additional privacy rights, which are explained here.
Personal Data is any information about an individual from which that individual can be identified. Your name, address, phone number and bank account number are examples of personal data. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data). We collect Personal Data from you in various ways, including when you visit the Site, create an account with us, purchase, enroll in and use our Programs, use our Apps, answer surveys, participate in our social media communities, such as on Facebook, and when you send us feedback.
If your school, employer or other third party purchases Programs on your behalf, or if an agent refers you to Metis, such third parties may provide us with Personal Data about you, including your first name, last name and email address. We may also collect Personal Data about you from our business partners and other Kaplan owned companies.
We may use your personal data in the following ways:
* For the purpose you provided personal data, for example to enroll you in one of our Programs or respond to a specific inquiry;
* To customize and personalize your learning experience to you;
* To administer, support, improve and develop our business;
* To send you information about Metis products or services;
* To send you information about the products and services of our related and affiliated companies, as well as select third party's products or services that may be of interest to you;
* To allow you access to the Site to post your content or communicate with others; and
* And as otherwise described to you at the point of collection.
If you provide Metis with a telephone number, such as when you purchase, enroll in or use a Metis Program, you agree that Metis may contact you by telephone and/or text message utilizing automated technology at such telephone number(s). You understand that this consent is not required to purchase goods or services from Metis.
We do not share your Personal Data with third parties for their marketing purposes, though we may share your Personal Data with other Kaplan companies. We may disclose your Personal Data in response to legal process, to protect our rights, as otherwise required by law, or for the prevention or detection of a crime. We may share your Personal Data with trusted third parties who are delivering services to Metis, including those who help deliver our Programs, help us process transactions, such as charging your credit card when you make purchases, and otherwise help us operate our business. These third parties are not authorized by us to use your Personal Data except in connection with providing services to us. Metis may disclose anonymous data to third parties. We may also share your information with third parties that you have specifically designated as authorized to receive information from us.
If payment for your Program was made by a third party, Metis may provide that third party with access to your Personal Data and other data. If Metis provides You access to a Program in your capacity as a student of a school that has contracted with Metis, Metis may share your activity, performance and other data with your school, even if you paid for the Program in whole or in part yourself.
If we sell our company or part of it, or our business enters into a joint venture with another business entity, we may disclose your Personal Data to our new business partners or owners who may then provide you with information about their products and services.
