Privacy Policy

What Type of Information Does This Site Collect From You?

This site collects two types of information. These types of information are: non-personally identifiable information, and personally identifiable information. Personally identifiable information is information that can be use to identify you personally such as your email address. Non-personally identifiable information is information that cannot be used to identify you personally, such as your browser version or ISP.

One important thing to note is that with the exception of your IP address (some people consider this personally identifiable, and some do not), we do not ever see or store information that personally identifies you; it is only transmitted to advertisers via ad widgets when you choose to interact with them on the site.

If  choose to interact with one of the ad widgets on the site, or you request information from schools using one of the third-party ad widgets on this site (both of which are completely optional), obviously they will have your personally identifiable information because you chose to submit it.

A) Non-personally Identifiable Information

Non-personally identifiable information is collected any time you visit the site or navigate through any page on the site. Non-personally identifiable information can include but is not limited to things like your browser version, ISP, your computer’s operating system, and similar metrics. This also includes your IP address. Some courts have ruled that an IP address is non-personally identifiable because it identifies a computer and not a person, while other rulings have suggested that an IP address may be considered personally identifiable information. This site does collect your IP address, so however you want to classify it, you should be aware that your IP is collected and logged, along with your ISP. Information about your visit is also collected and logged, such as which pages you view and for how long, among other similar metrics.

B) Personally-Identifiable Information

If you choose to interact with any of the advertising widgets on this site (such as those provided by companies like CampusExplorer.com or Quinstreet.com), those widgets may collect personally identifiable information such as your name, email address, physical address, phone number, date of birth, highest level of education, zip code, or other related information that can be used to identify you.

It’s very important to note once again that we, PhlebotomyTrainingResource.com, do not ever see, log, or record any of this information. If you choose to interact with one of the advertising widgets and submit your personally-identifiable information, it’s transmitted directly to the advertisers; we are not even able to see it. They provide us with the source code to generate the advertising widget, but that code does not allow us to view, store, save, or record any of the information that is submitted.

As mentioned on the disclaimer page, it’s very important that you understand that these advertisers have separate and independent terms of service and also independent privacy policies, and because of this, you should fully read and understand their policies and terms before you interact with any of the advertising widgets. Because of the fact that they have separate and independent privacy policies and terms of service, PhlebotomyTrainingResources.com is not responsible for their actions, and the use of misuse of any information submitted to these third party advertisers. It’s important that if you do not fully understand and agree with any advertiser’s separate privacy policies and terms of service that you don’t interact with any of the advertising.
