PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT CUSTOMERS
The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your learning experience at etilearn.com. Here are the types of information we gather.

Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our web site or give us in any other way. Click here to see examples of what we collect. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future classes for you, improving our courses, and communicating with you.

Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses etilearn.com. Click here to see examples of the information we receive. A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit web sites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at etilearn.com if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.

E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from etinews.com if your computer supports such capabilities. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please send notification removeme@etinews.com from the email address that you wish to be removed.

COOKIES
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as bookmarking your place in a lesson or storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.

The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of www.etilearn.com's and www.etinews.com’s features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.

SHARING THE INFORMATION WE RECEIVE
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below and with subsidiaries etinews.com, Inc. controls that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.

Agents: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Protection of etilearn.com and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of etinews.com, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.

With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

THE SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.

We reveal only the last five digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

INFORMATION YOU CAN ACCESS
Effective Trainining gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with etilearn.com for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. Click here to see some examples, the list of which will change as our Web site evolves.

YOUR CHOICES
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to register for classes or to take advantage of such etilearn.com features as *.

You can add or update certain information on pages such as those listed in the "Which Information Can I Access?" section above. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the prior version for our records.

The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, you will not be able to use such important features as the Shopping Cart, Customer Reviews and Message Boards.

CONDITIONS OF USE, NOTICES, AND REVISIONS
If you choose to visit etilearn.com or etinews.com, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice and our Conditions of Use, including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of the state of Michigan. If you have any concern about privacy at etilearn.com, please send us a thorough description to privacy@etinews.com, and we will try to resolve it.

Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Notice and the Terms of Use will change also. You should check our Web site frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make; however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
