Privacy Policy

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data, please contact our administrative team.

  1. 1) Website Visitors. Like most website operators, COLT collects non- personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. COLT's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how COLT's visitors use its website. From time to time, COLT may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. COLT also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users. COLT only discloses logged-in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

  2. 2) Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information. Certain visitors to this website choose to interact with COLT in ways that require COLT to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that COLT gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a student account at COLTCEU.com to provide a username, email address, first and last name, mailing address, and mother's maiden name. Enrolling in certain classes may require students to provide identification and/or license numbers issued by government agencies, as mandated by law. In each case, COLT collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with COLT. COLT does not disclose personally- identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

  3. 3) Aggregated Statistics. COLT may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, COLT may monitor the most popular articles on the Website or the most common referring URLs to the Website. COLT may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, COLT does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

  1. 4) Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information. COLT discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on COLT's behalf or to provide services available at COLTCEU.com, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using COLT's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. COLT will not rent or sell potentially personally- identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, COLT discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally- identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when COLT believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of COLT, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a COLT website and have supplied your email address, COLT may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with COLT and our products. We primarily use our websites to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. COLT takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

  2. 5) Cookies. A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. COLT uses cookies to help COLT identify and track visitors, their usage of COLT, websites, and their website access preferences. COLT visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using COLT's websites, with the drawback that certain features of COLT's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

  3. 6) Business Transfers. If COLT, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that COLT is disorganized or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of COLT may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

    7) Privacy Policy Changes. Although most changes are likely to be minor,

COLT may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and at COLT's sole discretion. COLT encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
