If you do not wish to receive such information, please e-mail info@onlinecameraed.com.

DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We may provide information about you to our employees/tutors in order to facilitate and administer your progression through your chosen course.

We will not disclose your personal information to any third party unless you have consented to such disclosure or where we are required to do so by law. Should you breach our terms and conditions or terms of use or if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, we may disclose your information to a relevant authority. This may include exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

COOKIES

Cookies are small data files that a website you visit may save on your computer or handheld device that usually includes an anonymous unique identifier. Our Website may use cookies for user authentication, tracking our audience size and traffic patterns, and in certain other cases.

Third-party advertisers may also create and access cookies, which will be subject to their privacy policies – we accept no responsibility or liability for the use of such third parties’ cookies. If you do not wish cookies to be placed on your PC or handheld device, then they can be disabled in your web browser. The option to do so is normally found in your browser’s “security settings” section. Please note that permanently disabling cookies in your browser may hinder your use of websites with interactive services.

SECURITY

All security on our Websites is treated seriously. Where applicable, we undertake security steps, including use of SSL technology and tokenizaion, on our back-end systems that store customer account information and to protect data transmissions. Tokenization is the latest security feature that we have implemented on all of our accepted payment gateways. Tokenization when applied to data security, is the process of substituting a sensitive data element with a non-sensitive equivalent, referred to as a token, that has no extrinsic or exploitable meaning or value. This means in simple terms that your data is being managed by the latest most secure systems available for managing payments online. However, this is not a guarantee that such data transmissions cannot be accessed, altered or deleted due to firewall or other security software failures.

If you have any further concerns about security, please email our team at info@onlinecameraed.com.
