Privacy Policy

Terms of Use Policy, Effective February 6, 2016

Thank you for visiting ChristianColleges.com and using the content and services provided on our website. Below are provisions regarding the use of this website and the details of how we gather the information we need to bring you the most helpful products, services and content.

You agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy stated below by using our website.

We reserve the right to revise our policies at any time. We recommend you periodically reread this page for the most up-to-date information.

You should be aware that we collect two kinds of information: submitted and automatic.

Submitted information includes your name, telephone number, mailing address, email address and any other details gathered through our web forms, which we use to provide education services and products requested by our visitors. We collect the submitted information, store it and then share it with schools and third parties in order to bring you information about schools, programs and education services.

By submitting information, you authorize ChristianColleges.com and our affiliates to contact you, in accordance with all applicable laws, by telephone, text, email or mail. We and our partners may contact you about education options or other related topics. More information on this is stated below. If you receive an email communication from us, a school or another third party and you want to unsubscribe, you can do so through a link in the email. If you choose to opt-out, at that point you will be removed from the sender’s future mailings.

Automatic information is collected whenever you interact with ChristianColleges.com. This information is anonymous, and like most websites, we store it and use it for various purposes. Examples of automatic information are, but not limited to, your IP address, operating system version and browser version. Primarily, we use it to make improvements to the site and create a more relevant user experience. We gather automatic information through the use of “cookies,” and we then use the information for analytics, site optimization, and for tailoring our advertising and marketing. More information on cookies is below.

At times we may share your information. Through the use of ChristianColleges.com, you acknowledge and agree the submitted and automatic information we collect can be shared with schools, affiliate companies and other third parties to bring you degree and program information, as well as news on education-related services and products. You also acknowledge and agree that ChristianColleges.com has the right to release any of this collected information, personally identifiable or otherwise, as we need to, to businesses that provide administration services to our company. For example: email service delivery.

By submitting your personal information to us, you grant us, our affiliate schools, and third-party marketing partners and vendors permission to contact you by phone, text, email or mail. We can contact you to provide information that is related to education services and products and which is marketing or otherwise.

Your submission also grants us and our affiliates the right to call you despite the Do Not Call list, as your submission effectively omits the Do Not Call requirements established by state and federal laws and provides us an exemption from those laws.

Additionally, your submission to the site gives us the right to release any of your personal information for legal purposes, whether it is to abide with a subpoena or other legal procedure. We will exercise this option in good faith when we believe it is necessary to protect our rights, assure the safety or you and others and explore allegations of fraud. We may also exercise this option in the circumstance that ChristianColleges.com enters into a merger, acquisition or sale of some or all of its assets to a third party.

You acknowledge and consent to our use of cookies by utilizing our site. Cookies are small pieces of data sent from a website and stored in your web browser. They’re generally used for purposes such as web analytics. We perform our web analytics mainly through a Google, Inc. tool known as Google Analytics.

Advertising cookies, sometimes known as third-party cookies, enable advertisers to make ads more relevant to visitors’ interests. These cookies do not contain personally identifiable information so all visitors remain anonymous. They track navigation and publish ads on behalf of third parties.

You can find more information about Google Analytics in Google’s privacy policy: http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html.

Here are some examples of how we use cookies:

  • Web analytics to capture demographic and other anonymous data for web optimization and other analysis;
  • “Lead auditing” for ensuring accuracy, relevance and validity of information that is submitted;
  • Tracking marketing and conversion, including, but not limited to, targeting and optimizing digital ad serving for improving relevance, user experience and advertising effectiveness.

You can remove cookies at any time through your browser. You may be required to do so per use and not on a one-time basis.

You can generally opt-out of personalized ads. You can unsubscribe on the opt-out pages of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) website or the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) website. Those who are members of the NAI or follow the DAA’s Self-Regulatory Principles, as well as other third-party advertisers and ad networks, will allow you to opt out.
