Privacy Policy

Terms of Use and Privacy Policy for Use of BachelorsDegree.org (Effective Date 2/5/2016)

Thank you for your interest in using our website content and services. This document explains the conditions governing use of our website, and the way in which BachelorsDegree.org gathers and applies different types of information in order to bring you content and related products and services.

By using this site, it's assumed you agree to these Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Typically we collect information in two categories:

  • Submitted information:
    • We have web forms for the voluntary submission of personal contact info, like name, telephone number, mailing address and email address. We do this in order to provide the services requested by our visitors, as well as any other information needed to match you to an education product or service. We collect your submitted information, store it and share it with schools and other third parties to provide you with information — about schools, programs and education related services, as necessary.

      When you voluntarily submit this info, you authorize BachelorsDegree.org and our affiliated schools and partners to contact you: by telephone, text messages, email or mail, in accordance with all applicable laws, regarding education options or related topics. Below, you will find more information on this and other important topics. If you want to unsubscribe from any of these email communications — from us, a school, or third party — you'll get the option via a link in the email to opt out, at which point you will be removed from that sender's further mailings.

  • Automatic information:
    • Whenever you interact with us, we also receive and store certain types of anonymous information. Most websites do this. What do we do with this info? Primarily, we use it to make improvements and creating a more relevant user experience.

      We use "cookies" to collect anonymous data. Examples of how we use this? Some examples include analytics, site optimization and for tailored advertising and marketing purposes. Examples of anonymous data include — but are not limited to — your browser version, operating system version, and your IP address. You can find more information about our use of cookies can be found below in this document.

When you utilize our website, we assume you acknowledge and agree that information we collect on our website may be shared with schools, affiliated companies, and third parties, to provide you with degree information — as well as inform you of other programs and education-related products and services.

In addition, you acknowledge and agree with our right to release any collected information, personally identifiable or otherwise, as needed, to businesses providing administration services to our company, for example: email service delivery.

By submitting personal information to BachelorsDegree.org, you grant permission for us, our affiliated entities, including schools, third-party marketing partners and vendors to contact you, including via telephone, text messages, email, or mail to provide information, marketing or otherwise, for education-related services and products.

Furthermore, this action grants us, our affiliates, and partners and vendors, the right to contact you and relinquish any rights granted to you by the Do Not Call list or other applicable law for a period of time. With your submission, you effectively omit Do Not Call requirements established by state and federal governments and may also provide exemption for us from other applicable laws.

Through your submission, you also allow us the right to release your personal information — for example, to abide by a subpoena or other legal procedure, or in other instances required by law.

We exercise this option when, in good faith, we believe it is necessary to preserve our rights, ensure the safety of you or others, explore alleged fraud, to reply to a government or legal request, and/or in the instance that BachelorsDegree.org enters into a merger, acquisition, or sale of some or all of its assets to a third party.

Terms of Use and Privacy Policy Changes Notification

It is possible we will perform revisions to our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy in the future if we change our practices; therefore, we recommend that you reread this document periodically for the most up-to-date practices concerning your privacy and other vital information.
