Privacy Policy

What Information We Collect

Please note that this policy applies only to the information we gather about you from this website.

Information Your Web Browser Sends

As with most websites, when you visit our site, our servers record information that your browser sends. This information is saved in our server logs. It includes:

  • IP address
  • browser type (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.)
  • browser language
  • date and time of your visit

Please note that you can be identified by IP address, since your ISP has information linking your account to your IP address.

Beyond the data gathering described above, we may use our website to ask you for data for specific purposes. When we ask you for data for a specific purpose, we will clearly tell you how we intend to use it. You will have the option of supplying it or refusing to supply it.

User Communications

Whenever you send us an email or other communication, we retain the information you send.

Account Information

When you create an account with our site, we ask you for your name, email address, and password. We use this information to verify your identity to access secure parts of the website. We also use this information to communicate with you. We will not use this data for any other purpose without your consent except if required otherwise by law.


When you visit our website, we send a cookie file to your computers. A cookie file is a tiny file with an identification code so that we can identify your computer and know when you come back and visit our site again.

Online Course Registration

On the registration form for our online courses, the information you supply is being collected for us to learn, over time, information about our audience for our courses. Learning this helps us better tailor our courses to our audience, plus it helps us determine what courses to create in the future. We may also use this information for verification purposes when providing certificates of completion to those who request them. If you opt into the newsletter, your information will be used to send out the newsletter. These are the only ways in which we will use your information.


How Will We Use Your Data?

We will use your data in connection with our activities, events, and services that relate to privacy and data security. We may use your data to engage in research to improve this website or to protect the website’s security.

When Will We Disclose Your Data?

We use Google Analytics. Accordingly, Google may collect some data about your visit to our site. If you supply our data to us, we may share your data with a third party vendor to facilitate our communication with you (such as a bulk email service provider) or to perform services related to the event (such as preparation of conference materials). We will not disclose your data to third parties for purposes unrelated to the uses described in this privacy policy except pursuant to a subpoena or court order or in response to an emergency involving health or safety of yourself or other people. In the event of a criminal investigation, the government may seek information about you. When we are obligated by law to provide the information, we will do so. If we are permitted to notify you before providing it, we will make a reasonable attempt to do so. If we have reason to believe there is a need to disclose your data to prevent harm, violence, or harassment to another person or generally to the public at large, we will do so. We will disclose your data only to the extent necessary to address the issue. Except when required otherwise by law or court order, we will seek your permission before disclosing any other information about you.

This privacy policy applies to this site only. On our site, you may find hyperlinks to other websites. Whenever you click those links, you are leaving our website and visiting another website. When you do this, the privacy policies of those other sites will govern what information these sites can gather from you. Our privacy policy doesn’t apply to these other sites.
