CTA (Certified Training Alliance) takes your privacy seriously and is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. Because we do gather certain types of information from visitors to our sites, we have developed a privacy statement to help you understand the terms and conditions surrounding the collection and use of that information. This statement discloses the types of information we gather, how it is used, and how you can gain access to and edit any data that we've collected about you at any time.
CTA respects the privacy of individuals who visit our Web sites, send us e-mail, or participate in features/services we offer online. Accordingly, our policy regarding online privacy has been developed using the following guiding principles:
CTA maintains a strict "no-spam" policy. Subscribers to our e-mail services or any other feature/service found on a CTA Web site will not receive unsolicited e-mail messages from CTA.
CTA may send authorized communications to you on the basis of the information you provide to us through e-mail or regular mail. You may also opt-out of e-mail and regular mail communications from us at any time (see "Opt-Out Procedures" below).
You may always opt-out of receiving future communications from CTA. Our sites allow users to opt-out of receiving such communications at the point where personal information is requested, or through other means as identified.
You may correct or update any information we may have about you by contacting us via email.
Non-Personally Identifiable Data: Any time you visit a CTA Web site, we may gather certain non-personally identifiable information regarding the means you use to access our site. This information may include the type and version of your browser, your service provider, your IP address, and any search engine you may have used to locate the site. We use this information to help diagnose problems with our server, administer the Web site, and compile broad statistical data. In addition, CTA gathers certain navigational information about where you go on our Web sites. This information enables us to determine which areas of the Web sites are most frequently visited and helps us to tailor the sites to the needs and interests of our online visitors. In addition, this tracking data may be used to tailor information presented to you on our sites based on your previous use of the sites and your interests in particular topics.
CTA understands the importance of your privacy. We collect and maintain the personal information of our customers for the use of CTA. We do not sell, rent, or trade consumer information to third parties, other than as described below.
Business Partners: CTA may partner with select retailers and other companies at various times to provide expanded services. As part of such a relationship, CTA may share with these companies the use of certain interactive Web site functions. Information provided by site visitors through the use of such interactive functions may be available to both CTA and its partners.
Agents: CTA may use other companies and individuals to perform certain functions on our behalf. Examples include administering e-mail services and running special promotions. Such parties only have access to the personal information needed to perform these functions and may not use or store the information for any other purpose. Subscribers or site visitors will never receive unsolicited e-mail messages from agents working on our behalf.
Business Transfers: In the event that CTA sells or transfers a particular portion of its business assets, consumer information may be one of the business assets transferred as part of the transaction. If substantially all of the assets of CTA are acquired, consumer information may be transferred as part of the acquisition.
