Also, we may use your Personal Information to send you information about us or our products or services, notify you about certain services we think you may be interested in learning more about, or sending emails and other communications about topics that we think will interest you according to your preferences.
We may use your Personal Information to personalize your experience interacting with us, including by presenting information tailored to you, and for our business purposes, such as data analysis, audits, fraud monitoring and prevention, developing and improving our Services and new products and services, determining the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns, and operating and expanding our business activities.
We may share your Personal Information with faculty and other persons involved in offering and conducting our Services. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may provide Personal Information to our affiliated businesses or to our business partners, who may use it to send you communications or for other lawful purposes.
We may disclose Personal Information to our service providers, who provide services such as website hosting, data analysis, payment processing, order fulfilment, information technology and related infrastructure provision, customer service, email delivery, auditing, and other services.
We also may disclose your Personal Information or any other information we collect about you if we determine in good faith that such disclosure is needed to: (1) comply with or fulfill our obligations under applicable law, regulation, court order or other legal process; (2) protect the rights, property or safety of you, us or another party; (3) enforce the Agreement or other agreements with you; (4) respond to claims that any posting or other content violates third-party rights; or (5) investigate security breaches or otherwise cooperate with authorities pursuant to a legal matter.

Should one of these events occur, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you before your information becomes subject to different privacy and security policies and practices.
We may use and disclose information that is not Personal Information (including Personal Information that has been de-identified and/or aggregated) for any purpose, except to the extent limited by applicable law. If we are required to treat such information as Personal Information under applicable law, then we may use it for all the purposes for which we use and disclose Personal Information.
We seek to use reasonable physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to protect information within our organization. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if your account data has been lost, stolen or used without permission, or the security of your account with us has been otherwise compromised), please immediately contact us in accordance with the “Contact Information” section below. If we believe that the security of your Personal Information may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we will endeavor to notify you as promptly as possible under the circumstances by e-mail to the most recent e-mail address you have provided us in your account profile. Please keep your e-mail address in your account up to date. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Credentials and for restricting access to your device, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your password.
