The privacy of the visitors to GREReviewCourse.com is very important to us. Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you visit GREReviewCourse.com, and how we safeguard your information.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Earthlink), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
Presently, “cookies” play an important role in making the Internet work, but there is much confusion among Internet users about what cookies are and how they are used.
A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred from a web site to the hard drive of your computer so that the web site may identify you and track your activities on the web site. This unique number identifies your browser– but not you — to the GREReviewCourse computers whenever you visit our site.
A cookie will not let a web site know any personally identifiable information about you, such as your real name and address. Since cookies are only text files, they cannot run on your computer, search your computer for other information or transmit any information to anyone.
The personal information is gathered when you register with GREReviewCourse.com or if you purchase one of our memberships. If you choose to register or purchase a membership–and we hope you do– you may provide us with your name, postal address, email address, zip code, telephone number, and other information. When you purchase your membership, your billing information is handled through a secure payment processor (Paypal or Google Checkout).
Only authorized administrators have access to the information you provide us. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to data will not occur, we make every effort to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.
You are ultimately responsible for the security of your GREReviewCourse username and password. Please take care when using and storing them. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. You should log out of your browser at the end of each computer session to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence, especially if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe.
How you can better protect yourself on the Internet-
When you communicate with others online, you should be aware that, when disclosing personal information such as one’s actual name, member name, e-mail address, etc., on a web page, in a newsgroup, chat room or forum, that information may be collected and used by others to send that person unsolicited e-mail from other parties. As a general internet user, you must know the risks.
Search the Web for information about how to protect your privacy. Look for a privacy statement in the sites you visit. Visit the Federal Trade Commission’s web site and read information on being a Savvy Internet Traveler and other privacy initiatives. Additional privacy resources can be found at the following links:
