Clear Light College Success, Inc, like all providers of personal financial services, is required by law to inform our clients of our policies regarding the privacy of client information. We always protect your right to privacy and are committed to professional standards to maintain your privacy.

WHY WE NEED YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Clear Light College Success personalizes your online admissions and funding counseling experience. Accordingly, we need to collect some personal information from you to set up your account with us. Here are some of the things we need your personal information to be able to do:

  • Make your counseling sessions more personalized
  • Store all of your past sessions and data in the dashboard so you can review them anytime
  • Complete your purchases
  • Contact you about your account
  • Send you newsletters by mail or email about our service
  • Ask you for your feedback to help make our service better
  • Respond to your email requests for information and/or customer service.  You trust us with your personal information and we do everything we can to make sure your information is safe in our systems. Some things we will NOT do are:

                       We WILL NOT sell your personal information to anyone

                       We WILL NOT send you promotional mail if you tell us not to.  

As part of our service, we may ask you to provide personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. We may also ask for tax filings and financial information that will be used to provide our Clear Light College Success, Inc services. We may also collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age and gender. We may collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with the Clear Light College Success, Inc websites and services. We also collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring Website addresses.

Clear Light College Success, Inc collects and uses your personal information to operate and improve our sites and deliver the services or carry out the transactions you have requested. These uses may include providing you with more effective customer service; making the sites or services easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products, services and technologies; and displaying content that is customized to your interests and preferences.  We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders, information on technical service issues and security announcements. We may send member newsletters that are considered part of the service. We may also occasionally send you promotional mailings to inform you of other products or services available from Clear Light College Success, Inc.

 You can visit the Your Account section of Clear Light College Success anytime to see personal information we have collected about you, and you can tell us if you want to receive any promotional mail or email from us. If you are under age 13, a law called the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) says that we must have a parent’s permission before we may collect and use your Personal Information. We will need this permission before we are able to create an account for you or provide you with the Clear Light College Success resources. Note to parents if children under the age of 13: You are welcome to call us at 866-670-3388, to review any identifiable information we have collected about your child. If you desire, you may request that we delete this information and/or specify that we collect no more of your child’s information. Please note that we will need to verify the identity of anyone requesting information about a child to ensure that the person is in fact the child’s parent or legal guardian, and that a request for us to delete all personal information about a child requires us to cancel the child’s resources account. We may share your personal information with those who pay for your account.

If your parents/guardians and/or your school pay for or subsidize the cost of your admissions and funding counseling, we may share your personal information with them at their request. This includes the content created by you throughout the Clear Light College Success resources. If you choose not to share certain confidential information that you create within the Clear Light College Success resources with your parents or guardians, we will not share your Personal Information with them.

SHARING AND USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We do not share with persons outside our firm any information which you may supply to us or authorize us to obtain from third-parties. We do, however, share such information with individuals within our firm and its affiliated entities so that we can offer you our full range of professional services. We may access and/or disclose your personal information if we believe such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or legal process served on Clear Light College Success, Inc; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Clear Light College Success, Inc (including the enforcement of our agreements); or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Clear Light College Success, Inc services or members of the public.

Some Clear Light College Success, Inc services may be co-branded and offered in conjunction with another company. If you register for or use such services, both Clear Light College Success, Inc and the other company may receive information collected in conjunction with the co-branded services.

We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, maintaining and hosting websites, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose. 

We may also be required to disclose your confidential information to a service bureau that may or may not have employees located outside the United State to assist us in providing our services for you.

Also be advised that, from time to time, we are approached by non-affiliated third-parties inquiring whether any of our clients might be interested in effecting a given type of transaction or purchasing their goods or services.  It is our policy not to provide any confidential information about you to such persons without your express consent.

Except as described in this statement, we will not disclose your personal information outside of Clear Light College Success, Inc and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your consent.
