Terms of Use and Privacy Policy for Use of ForensicScienceTechnician.org (Effective Date 2/5/2016)

Thank you for visiting ForensicScienceTechnician.org, and for your interest in using our content and services. This page explains the conditions governing the use of our website, and the way in which we gather and apply different types of information in order to deliver content and related products and services. Your use of our website assumes that you agree to this Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. In the event that our practices change, this page will be updated, so we advise that you review its contents regularly to remain aware of our most up-to-date policies concerning your privacy and other important information.

Generally, we collect information in two categories:

Submitted Information:

Web forms on this site allow for the voluntary submission of personal contact information, including:

  • Name
  • Telephone number
  • Mailing address
  • Email address

We need this information to provide the services requested by our visitors, as well as any other information needed to connect you with education products or services. We collect your submitted information, store it, and share it with schools and other third parties to provide you with information about schools, programs, and education-related services as necessary.

When you voluntarily submit information, you authorize ForensicScienceTechnician.org and our affiliated schools and partners to contact you about education options or related topics, and to do so by telephone, text messages, email, or mail in accordance with all applicable laws. For further information about how your information is handled, see below.

Automatic Information:

Much as most websites do, we receive and store certain types of anonymous information when you interact with ForensicScienceTechnician.org. We use cookies to collect anonymous data for analytics, site optimization, and for tailored advertising and marketing purposes, for example. Most often, this information is used to improve our website and create a more relevant user experience. Examples of anonymous data include, but are not limited to:

  • Your browser version
  • Your operating system version
  • Your IP address

More information about our use of cookies can be found below on this page.

How We Handle Information

By using our website, we assume you acknowledge and agree that information we collect on ForensicScienceTechnician.org may be shared with schools, affiliated companies, and third parties in order to deliver you degree information and inform you of other programs and education-related products and services. We also assume that you acknowledge and agree with our right to release any collected information, personally identifiable or otherwise, as needed, to businesses providing administration services, such as email service delivery, to our company.

By submitting personal information to ForensicScienceTechnician.org, you grant permission for us, our affiliated entities, including schools, third-party marketing partners, and vendors to contact you (including by telephone, text messages, email, or mail) to bring you information, marketing or otherwise, about education-related services and products. Furthermore, your submission of voluntary information grants us, our affiliates, and partners and vendors the right to contact you and so relinquishes any rights granted to you by the Do Not Call list or other applicable law, for a period of time. By this action, you effectively omit Do Not Call requirements established by state and federal governments, and you may also provide exemption for us from other applicable laws.

If you wish to unsubscribe from any email communications from us, a school, or third party, a link in the email will provide you with an opportunity to opt out. If you avail yourself of this option, you will at that point be removed from that sender's mailing list.

By submitting information, you also allow us the right to release your personal information in instances required by law, such as to abide by a subpoena or other legal procedure, for example. We exercise this right when, in good faith, we believe it is necessary to ensure the safety of you or others, preserve our rights, reply to a government or legal request, explore alleged fraud, and/or in the instance that ForensicScienceTechnician.org enters into a merger, acquisition, or sale of some or all of its assets to a third party.

On Cookies

By using this website you acknowledge and consent to our use of cookies. Used most commonly for technical reasons, such as in web analytics, cookies are small pieces of data sent from a website and stored in the user's web browser. Our web analytics are handled mainly through Google Analytics, a Google, Inc. tool. Advertising cookies allow advertisers to make ads more relevant to the user's interests. These cookies, sometimes called third-party cookies, do not contain personally identifiable information, so users are still anonymous, but they do track navigation and publish ads on behalf of third parties.

More information about Google Analytics can be found in Google's privacy policy: http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html.

Uses of Cookies

We use cookies, including through services and partnerships with vendors and third-party service providers, in several ways, for example: lead auditing, which helps ensure the accuracy, relevance, and validity of information that is submitted; web analytics, so as to track demographic and other anonymous data for web optimization and other analysis; and to capture marketing and conversion information, including, but not limited to, targeting and optimizing digital ads to improve relevance, user experience, and advertising effectiveness.

Refusing and Removing Cookies and Third-Party Advertising

You can generally opt out of receiving personalized ads from members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or those who follow the Digital Advertising Alliance's Self-Regulatory Principles, as well as from other third party advertisers and ad networks. Learn more or unsubscribe by visiting the opt-out pages on the NAI website and DAA website.

You can remove cookies at any time through your browser. This may need to be done on a per-use and not one-time basis.
