What is Light University Online's practice regarding cookies?

Your browser software has a feature called a “cookie” that stores small amounts of data on your computer about your visit to certain Web sites. As a user of browser software, you may elect to disable this feature, although doing so may prevent you from using certain features that require cookies. Cookies placed on your computer by Light University Online don't tell us any personally identifiable information about you, but instead provide anonymous information that permits Light University Online to track how users navigate our pages, when users return to our sites, and which features are the most popular.

What other information does Light University Online collect on this site?

Like many commercial Web sites, Light University Online servers monitor and log all Web traffic on the Site. These logs contain the IP address and URL from the Site you visited just before you visited, the URL of the page you visit upon leaving the Site, if any, and the type of browser and operating system you are using. Statistical information is collected about visitor traffic patterns in order to improve the quality, functionality and usefulness of the Site to our customers. In such cases, the system has no means to identify you personally. We may also create and maintain records of anonymous data collected from cookies and anonymous demographic information that has been aggregated from multiple personally identifiable records so that it is no longer personally identifiable with a particular person (such as aggregate number of inquiries from a particular city, state or zip code). We may share all of the anonymous data described above with our contractors and consultants, other educational institutions, and unaffiliated third parties such as analysts, reporters, governmental authorities and others.

How does Light University Online protect personal information?

Although we cannot guarantee against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alternation or destruction of data, we try to prevent such occurrences. Our servers and databases are protected by firewalls and passwords. In addition, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software to encrypt data as it travels between your computer and our servers.

Children

We never knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13, nor is this Site designed to provide any service to children under the age of 13. If you are under 13, please do not give us any personal information. If you have reason to believe that a child has provided us with personal information, please contact us and we will attempt to remove that information from our databases.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to add to, change, update or modify this Privacy Policy. Any such change, update or modification will be effective without prior notice and immediately upon posting within this area of our Web site. You should review this Privacy Policy from time to time to determine if changes have been made.

The Site may now contain, or contain in the future, links to other Web sites, such as links to online bookstores, degree-granting institutions, teaching certificate institutions, and third parties that may provide services or products to you. We are not responsible for the privacy practices, the content of, or any actions of such other Web sites or their owners or operators, such as their practices regarding cookies, information they may collect or share, or whether they may permit advertisers to place and use cookies.
