Privacy Policy

American College of Education is committed to ensuring the privacy and accuracy of your confidential information. ACE does not actively share personal information gathered from its Web servers. However, while ACE does not actively share information, in some cases ACE may be compelled by law to release information gathered from its Web servers.

As part of its commitment to maintain the privacy of its Web users, ACE has developed this privacy statement. The statement has two purposes:

 

  • To educate users about privacy issues.
  • To inform users about specific privacy policies and guidelines employed at ACE.

ACE also complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), which prohibits the release of education records without student permission.

Scope

This policy is effective specifically for the features or data centers of the ACE website and represents the minimum requirements that must be in place. Individuals or individual areas that have computers and networks may have additional controls and security, but they are in addition to this policy.

Exceptions

The data are used in aggregate by custodians of information technology to tune the website for its efficiency and are not ordinarily associated with specific individuals. Raw data from the Web server logs are only shared with the custodian of each website. Summary reports produced from the logs help publishers determine what browsers and pages are most popular.

E-commerce

Sites within ACE may enable you to pay for products or services online with a credit card. Although ACE makes every effort to ensure that the third parties providing these transactions are encrypted, ACE is not responsible for the privacy practices of these external third parties.

Digital Millennium Copyright Act

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), described as the most dramatic change to copyright law in a generation, was the 105th Congress's effort to update copyright law for the digital environment.
