PRIVACY POLICY

TestPrepExpress.com (“TestPrepExpress.com”, “we” or “us”) recognizes the importance of your personal privacy.  Therefore, we have created this Privacy Policy so that you know how we use and disclose your information when you make it available to us.  The Privacy Policy below discloses our practices regarding information collection and usage solely for the web site located at www.TestPrepExpress.com (the “Service”).

By using or accessing the Service or participating in our services, you signify your agreement to be bound by our Privacy Policy. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR OTHERWISE USE OUR SERVICE OR PARTICIPATE IN OUR SERVICES.

Key aspects of our privacy practices described in this Privacy Policy include the following explanations:

  • The information we collect and why we collect it
  • How we use that information
  • How we share information
  • The choices we offer

Personally Identifiable Information That We Collect:

We do not collect personally identifiable information from you unless you voluntarily provide it to us, such as by signing up to receive testing questions or other materials, completing an inquiry form or otherwise choosing to share your personally identifiable information with us. You may be required to submit certain personally identifiable information when you register on the Service. The personally identifiable information which you may provide to us could include your name, email address, physical address or zip code, phone number, credit card number and other personal information.

Non-Identifiable Or Aggregate Information That We Collect:

When you access our Service or use the TestPrepExpress.com services, we may automatically collect non-personally identifiable information from you, such as IP host address, web pages viewed, browser type, operating system, referring service, search information, device type, page views, usage and browsing habits on the Service and similar data. We may also aggregate demographic information collected from our users (such as the number of users in a particular state) in a manner which does not identify any one individual.   We may also aggregate information collected offline in connection with the Service or use of our services, obtain non-personally identifiable information from third party sources and develop aggregate information by anonymizing previously collected personally identifiable information.

It is possible at times when collecting non-personally identifiable information through automatic means that we may unintentionally collect or receive personally identifiable information that is mixed in with the non-personally identifiable information.  While we will make reasonable efforts to prevent such incidental data collection, the possibility still exists.  If you believe that we have inadvertently collected your personal information, please notify us at help@TestPrepExpress.com.  

Information Usage:

We will only use your personally identifiable information as described below, unless you have specifically consented to another type of use, either at the time the personally identifiable information is collected from you or through some other form of consent from you or notification to you:

  • We may share your personally identifiable information collected in connection with providing the Service.
  • We may use your personally identifiable information to respond to your inquires or requests.
  • We may use your personally identifiable information to send you emails from time to time about our services, such as future testing questions, but we will not provide your personally identifiable information to third parties for them to contact you directly unless otherwise permitted by this Privacy Policy or you provide your consent.
  • We may permit our vendors and subcontractors to access your personally identifiable information, but they are only permitted to do so in connection with performing services for us.  They are not authorized by us to use the information for their own benefit unless authorized by you.
  • We may share your personally identifiable information with third parties to further the purpose for which you provided such information to us; for example, we may share your information with Litle & Co/Vantiv. and CyberSource Corporation, as necessary for processing your purchases made online via the Service. We urge you to read Litle & Co./Vantiv and CyberSource Corporation’s privacy practices before submitting any personal credit card information through the Service.
  • We may disclose personally identifiable information as required by law or legal process.
  • We may disclose personally identifiable information to investigate suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, or the terms or policies for our services or our sponsors.
  • We may transfer your personally identifiable information in connection with the sale or merger or change of control of TestPrepExpress.com or the division responsible for the services with which your personally identifiable information is associated.
  • We may share your personally identifiable information with an affiliate of TestPrepExpress.com who is in the same corporate family as us as long as their privacy practices are substantially similar to ours.

Non- personally identifiable or aggregate information may be used by us for any purposes permitted by law and may be shared with any number of parties, provided that such information shall not specifically identify you.

Cookies and Similar Technologies:

“Cookies” are pieces of information that may be placed on your computer by a service for the purpose of facilitating and enhancing your communication and interaction with that service. Many services use cookies for these purposes.  We may use cookies (and similar items such as clear gifs, web beacons, tags, etc.) on our Service to customize your visit and for other purposes to make your visit more convenient or to enable us to enhance our Service.  We may also use and place cookies (and similar items) on your computer from our third party service providers in connection with the Service, such as an analytics provider that helps us manage and analyze Service usage, as described more fully below.  In addition, our advertisers and business partners may set cookies and similar items on your computer when you use our Service.  You may stop or restrict the placement of cookies on your computer or flush them from your browser by adjusting your web browser preferences, in which case you may still use our Service, but it may interfere with some of its functionality. Cookies and similar items are not used by us to automatically retrieve personally identifiable information from your computer without your knowledge.

If you delete your cookies, change browsers or use a different cookie, our cookie (or an opt-out cookie) may no longer work and you will have to reinput (or opt-out) again.

Analytics:

We use analytics services that use cookies, javascript and similar technologies to help us analyze how users use the Service.

Security:

The security of your personally identifiable information is very important to us. When we collect your personally identifiable information online, we use reasonable efforts to protect it from unauthorized access.  However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that your personally identifiable information will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers and your use of our Service and TestPrepExpress.com services demonstrates your assumption of this risk.  We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect.
