At Advanced, we respect our customers and understand that you are concerned about privacy, so we've instituted policies intended to ensure that your personal information is handled safely and responsibly. We also have posted this privacy policy to let you know what kind of information we collect, how it is handled, with whom it may be shared, what choices you have regarding our use of your information, and how you may access some of the data you provide to us. As we continue to develop our Web site and take advantage of technologies to improve the services we offer, this policy likely will change. We therefore encourage you to refer to this policy on an ongoing basis so that you understand our current privacy policy. If you have any questions about this policy, you can contact us in a number of ways: by sending an email to support@TrainingPro.com or calling 877-878-3600.

When you become an Advanced registered user or your company includes you as an authorized user, we collect your name, mailing address, email address, password, company information, and state license number (if applicable) together with any other personally identifiable information required by a State agency to confirm your identity. This information is gathered to make your shopping and site experience as a registered user the quickest, and easiest possible. If you are a registered user and have signed in when you enter this information, it is automatically saved in your personal tracker for your ease of reference. Your information may also have been submitted by your employer or organization on your behalf and it will be saved on your tracker. At Checkout, we collect the above information, as well as a credit card number and a billing and shipping address for certain transactions. When you register with us we also may ask for additional information (e.g., about your professional interests) in the section called My Personal Profile. We gather this information in order to offer services, courses and promotions that may be of interest to you. When you take courses, certain information is collected about you (e.g. courses selected, test results, certificates issued, time logged etc.) which is available in your Personal Tracker or which can be queried administratively from the system.  When you submit a question to customer service, we need your email address to respond, and you also may provide us with various additional information to help us answer your question.  We also may receive some information about you from other sources and may add it to your account information. For example, we might get your updated address from a shipper or information on your preferences from another Web site or education provider conducting a promotion or offering courses in conjunction with us.  We may acquire customer lists from other parties so that we may invite new people to visit TrainingPro.com.

 

What Are Cookies and Do We Use Them?  A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a Web site that is saved on your hard disk by your computer's browser. It holds information a site may need to interact with you and personalize your experience. At Advanced, we use two kinds of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies exist only for as long as your browser remains open. Once you exit your browser, they go away. We use session cookies to maintain information we need to have in order for you to shop at Advanced. For example, the Session ID cookie that we ask your browser to hold retains the ID for your shopping cart. Without the Session ID cookie, you can't add courses or merchandise to your bag and carry it to Checkout. Persistent cookies, in contrast, last from visit to visit; they do not go away when you exit your browser. At Advanced, we are preparing to use persistent cookies to give you a more personalized shopping experience and to help you navigate our store more efficiently. We will use your information to enhance your site experience. However, you can use our site without accepting a persistent cookie. To do so, you should set your browser options to reject persistent cookies. Alternatively, you can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, which gives you the opportunity to decide whether you want to accept it or not. In many instances, the Help button on your browser toolbar will tell you how you can take these steps. Cookies can be used by a Web site to recognize you, but that does not necessarily mean any personal information is stored in the cookies. At Advanced, we store no personal information about you in the cookies. Anything you choose to tell us about yourself (such as your address and email address) is stored safely and separately on our secured servers, and you need to provide a password to access it.

Is My Information Secure?  Advanced is committed to doing its best to maintain the security of information collected on our site. To try to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place the appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Private account and customer information is located on a secured server behind a firewall; it is not directly connected to the Internet. Encryption is a process by which a message or information is scrambled while it is in transit to Advanced. It is based on a key that has two different parts, public and private. The public part of the key is distributed to those with whom you want to communicate. The private part is for the recipient's use only. So long as you use a browser that allows for encryption, when you send personal information to us, you use a public key to encrypt your personal information. If your information is intercepted during the transmission, it is scrambled and very difficult to decrypt. Once we receive your encrypted personal information, we use the private part of our key to decode it.  Thank you for shopping with Advanced. If you have any questions or comments about this policy, please contact our Customer Service Department at support@TrainingPro.com or call 877-878-3600.

 

Privacy Policy Changes  Advanced reserves the right to change or modify this privacy policy at any time. As we anticipate that the policy will be modified from time to time, notice of changes to the policy will not be sent to individual users. Please check back to see the revised policy which will be posted on the site.
