Personal Information

In general, you can visit FedEducation™ on the Internet without telling us who you are and without giving any personal information about yourself. There are times, however, when we or our partners may need information from you.

You may choose to give us personal information in a variety of situations. For example, you may want to give us information, such as your name and address or e-mail id, to correspond with you, to process an order, or to provide you with a subscription. You may give us your credit card details to buy something from us. We intend to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you; if you tell us that you do not want us to use this information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your requests, we will respect your wishes. If you give us personal information about somebody else, such as a spouse or work colleague, we will assume that you have their permission to do so.

Cookies, Web Beacons and Other Technologies

We sometimes collect non-identifiable information from visits to FedEducation™ to help us provide better customer service. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit, and we also measure visitor activity on FedEducation™, but we do so in ways that keep the information non-identifiable. This information is sometimes known as "clickstream data."  FedEducation™ or others on FedEducation™'s  behalf may use this data to analyze trends and statistics and to help us provide better customer service.

Also, when we collect personal data from you in a transaction, we may extract some information about that transaction in an non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-identifiable information such as clickstream data.  This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level. If you do not want your transaction details used in this manner you can disable your cookies.

We collect the information we mentioned in the previous paragraphs through the use of various technologies, including one called "cookies". A cookie is a piece of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer as an anonymous tag that identifies your computer but not you. Some FedEducation™ pages use cookies, sent by FedEducation™ or its third party vendors, or other technologies to better serve you when you return to FedEducation™. You can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. You can also set your browser to turn off cookies. If you do so, however, some Web sites may not work properly.

FedEducation™ may also use Web beacon or other technologies to better tailor those sites to provide better customer service. These technologies may be in use on a number of pages on FedEducation™.  When a visitor accesses these pages, a non-identifiable notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by us or by our suppliers.  These Web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies. If you don't want your cookie information to be associated with your visits to these pages, you can set your browser to turn off cookies.

If you turn off cookies, Web beacon and other technologies will still detect visits to these pages, but the notices they generate cannot be associated with other non-identifiable cookie information and are disregarded.
