Privacy Policy
General

Application Prep respects the privacy of every individual who visits www.applicationprep.com (the “Website” or “Site”). Your privacy is very important to us. This Privacy Policy outlines the information we may collect, and how we will use and share that information. This Policy will also tell you what to do if you do not want your personal information collected or shared. If you have any questions about our policy, please email us at info@applicationprep.com.

Acceptance of These Terms

By using the Website, you signify your assent to our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this Policy, please do not use the Site. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of changes to its terms means you accept those changes.

Personally Identifiable Information

There are cases where we may ask you for personally identifiable information such as your name, mailing address, email address, and telephone number. We request personally identifiable information when you register as a user of the Website, for feedback forms, surveys, and for other services that require registration or subscription. We will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily.

When you provide us with personally identifiable information, Application Prep may:

store and process that information to better understand your needs, customize your experience, and improve our products and services;
use that information to contact you via email and postal mail for informational, marketing, and promotional purposes;
disclose that information to third parties who need such information to provide products and services that you have requested;
disclose that information to third parties when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Application Prep’s rights or property, other users of the Website, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities; and
disclose that information to third parties when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
Except as stated in this Privacy Policy or as otherwise stated at the time personally identifiable information is gathered, we will not provide personally identifiable information to third parties.

Financial Information

Application Prep may ask you for your credit card number and expiration date when you employ our services. We may use this information for processing your registration and orders and may share this information with credit card processing companies and any other third party that may need the information to process the transaction. These organizations have their own privacy and data collection practices, and we have no responsibility for these independent policies.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Application Prep may also collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. This type of information includes your age, gender, zip code, area code, interests, and preferences. We will not collect any such information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily. We may share this information in the aggregate with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties. For example, we may inform a sponsor that the users of the Website are x percent females and y percent males. This data is used to customize our Site’s content and advertising. We will also use the data to make visits to the Site easier, quicker, and better for you and our other users. We also may track certain information about your visit to the Website, including (without limitation) pages viewed, clickstreams, and searches. Such information is gathered in aggregate and is not linked to any specific users.

Other Special Circumstances

Contests, sweepstakes, or other promotions to the Site may have separate privacy practices with regard to the information collected in connection with entering or participating in any such event. You will have a choice of whether or not you would like to allow certain information to be shared with third parties that may have a product or service of interest to you.

Modification of Information and Opt-Out

We may occasionally send you e-mail about products and services we believe may be of interest to you. If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply tell us when you give us your personal information. Or, if you have been receiving the mailings and you would like to remove or change that option or some other information you have submitted, you may do so by contacting us. (Remember however, that removing some or all of your information may limit your ability to access some or all of the features and service of the Website.)

Information Collected Automatically

Application Prep may also automatically collect non-personally identifiable information about your use of the Website, such as the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, google.com, if you are connecting from a Gmail account), the date and time you access the Site, and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our Site. This information will not be linked to personally-identifiable information. We may use this information to analyze and enhance our Website and for security purposes and we may aggregate this information and share the aggregated information with business partners, sponsors, and other third parties.

Information Placed Automatically On Your Computer’s Hard Drive

When you view the Website, we may store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a “Cookie” or similar file and will help us in many ways. For example, Cookies allow us to tailor the Website to better match your interests and preferences. With most Internet browsers, you can erase cookies from your computer’s hard drive, block all Cookies, or receive a warning before a Cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. (Remember however, that blocking or deleting Cookies may limit your ability to access some or all of the features and services of the Website.)

Links to Other Websites

Be aware that Application Prep’s sponsors and other advertisers may have links on the Site that take you to other sites that may collect personally identifiable information about you. Application Prep hopes that all third parties involved adhere to Application Prep’s policies regarding the privacy of Application Prep’s users. However, this Privacy Policy does not cover third party data collection practices and Application Prep does not assume any responsibility for any actions of third parties.

Security

The importance of security of all personally identifiable information associated with our users is of utmost concern to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, we can’t ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. However, once we receive your personally identifiable information, we will take reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
