PRIVACY POLICY

OVERVIEW

FindABeautySchool is committed to respecting the privacy of our users. We strive to provide an exchange that will match school seekers with potential schools while promoting a safe, secure user experience. This Privacy Policy sets forth the online data collection and usage policies and practices that apply to the FindABeautySchool.com website (the “Website” or “Site”). Terms such as “we,” “us,” or “FindABeautySchool” refers to FindASchool LLC, the company that operates this Website. Please review this Privacy Policy periodically as we may update it from time to time. Updates and changes will be posted on this page or on another page as indicated by us. Each time you visit the Site or provide us with information, you are, by doing so, accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy at that time. This Privacy Policy is also subject to our Terms and Conditions, available at http://www.findabeautyschool.com/site/Terms-Of-Use.aspx. You should read the Terms and Conditions before using the Website.

Collection and Use of Information by FindABeautySchool

You can generally visit our Site without revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. However, if you wish to view or participate in certain sections of the Site or list or request information from a school, we may require you to create an account or provide information about yourself. The processes of creating an account and requesting information from a school involve providing certain information about yourself, your contact information, your school, your educational experience, and similar information. You do not need to provide requested information, but in such cases you may not be able to access certain portions of or features of this Website. Creating an account allows us to provide users with private and restricted areas to post and modify their original content on our site (e.g., school listings “Listings”). Although this Website is intended only for school seekers and schools, we can not and do not represent, warrant, or guarantee that other persons (not schools or school seekers) will use this Website and/or view your Listings, nor can we guarantee that all schools will adhere to the privacy standards upheld by FindABeautySchool. As a result, you should not include in your Listings any information you deem highly sensitive, and you understand and agree that Listings may be displayed on a section of our Website that is easily accessible. As a result, you agree that the contents of all Listings are non-confidential. We may archive or back-up the contents of our Site from time to time, and so your Listings and/or Information may continue to be saved in our archive even after you have changed or deleted such information. If at some point you choose to remove your Listing, FindABeautySchool cannot guarantee that someone else hasn't retained a copy for future use.

Viewing and Modifying Your Information

When listing schools and completing request for information forms, our users decide for themselves how much contact information they wish to display. Providing any additional personally identifiable information beyond what is required to create an account is optional. All users should be aware, however, that when they voluntarily display or distribute personal information (such as their email address), that information can be collected and used by others. This may result in, among other things, unsolicited messages from third parties for which FindABeautySchool is not responsible.

Use of Information

We may always use (copy, store, transfer, etc.) your Information in order to send you information regarding schools or prospective students – as this is the primary purpose of this Website. In some cases this may involve our sharing Information with third parties who perform services on our behalf, such as an email transmission company or website hosting company. In addition, we may use your Information to send you e-mail or other communications regarding updates to the FindABeautySchool' Site or other administrative announcements, or to protect our rights. We may always post your Listings on the Website, and in any other forum or medium as determined by us.

FindABeautySchool may always disclose Information, Listings, or any other information regarding your actions on or use of this Site when we determine that such disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, to cooperate with or seek assistance from law enforcement, or to protect the interests or safety of FindABeautySchool or other users of the Site or other third parties. In addition, we may always share, disclose, and transfer all Information, Listings, and any and all other personal and non-personal information we have collected to a successor-entity in the case of the sale of the assets of FindABeautySchool, corporate reorganization, merger, change in control, or similar transaction.

The data and information provided by you in the course of using this Website (“Information”) will be stored and processed in whole or in part in the United States. The Information may be shared within the FindABeautySchool-affiliated companies on a worldwide basis in order to deliver the products and services we offer. The data may also be used in order to undertake analysis of our database such as aggregate profiling of our registered users. “Affiliated companies” means entities that control, are controlled by or are under common control with FindABeautySchool. We may use your Information, including demographic information, to target certain communications or advertisements towards a particular group (for example, sending communications to people only in a particular State or geographic region).

The FindABeautySchool site contains links to other websites over which we have no control. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of other websites to which you choose to link from our site. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of those other sites so you can understand how they collect, use and share your information.
