We generally collect information in two categories: submitted information and automatic information. Submitted information includes the voluntary information we collect through our web forms, such as name, street address, email address, and telephone number, that we use to provide our visitors with the services they request, as well as any additional information needed to match a user to an education service or product. TopOnlineColleges.com collects your submitted information, stores it, and shares it with third parties, including schools, to provide you with information about said schools, programs, and other services related to education, as necessary.
By voluntarily submitting this information, you authorize TopOnlineColleges.com and our partners and affiliated schools to contact you, including by text message, telephone, mail, or email, in regards to topics relating to education options, as in accordance with all applicable laws. You will be able to unsubscribe from any email communications you may receive from us, as well as from schools or other third parties, through an opt-out link in the email, which will remove you from the sender’s future mailings.
By using our website, you acknowledge and agree that the information we collect on TopOnlineColleges.com may be shared with schools, affiliated companies, and third parties in order to provide you with degree information and to inform you of other education-related programs, products, and services. You also acknowledge and agree with our right to release any personally identifiable (or otherwise) collected information, as needed, to businesses that provide administration services to our company (i.e. for email service delivery).
By submitting personal information to TopOnlineColleges.com, you grant your permission for us, as well as our affiliated entities, including schools, third-party marketing vendors and partners, to contact you, either by telephone, text messages, email, and/or mail to provide information, marketing or otherwise, for products and services related to education. Furthermore, this action grants us, as well as our affiliates, partners, and vendors, the right to contact you and relinquish any rights granted by the Do Not Call list or other applicable law for a period of time. By submitting personal information to us, you effectively omit Do Not Call requirements established by state and federal governments and may also provide us exemption from other applicable laws.
Your submission also allows us the right to release your personal information in instances required by law, for example to abide by a subpoena or other legal procedure. We exercise this option when we believe, in good faith, it is necessary to preserve our rights, explore alleged fraud, reply to a government or legal request, ensure the safety of you or others, and/or in the instance that TopOnlineColleges.com enters into a acquisition, sale, or merger to a third party of some or all of our assets.
