Web Privacy Policy

Global Education Management Services LLC has created this privacy policy (this “Policy”) to

demonstrate our commitment to respecting the privacy of visitors to our site and to provide an

appropriate level of protection and management of their personally identifiable information in

our possession. This site is a privately owned, for-profit website and is not owned, operated or

affiliated with any government or department, bureau, or agency thereof.

This Policy will inform you of the categories of personally identifiable information we collect

and categories of third parties with whom the information may be shared. The phrases

“personally identifiable information” and “personal information” mean any information that

permits you to be contacted physically or online, such as your first and last name, physical

address, email address, telephone number or other identifying information maintained in

combination with any of the foregoing. This Policy is applicable only to this site and not to any

other websites that you may be able to access from this site. Such third party sites may collect

and use in a manner that materially differs from this Policy. This site and this Policy are subject

to the Terms of Use/Disclaimers, which govern your use of this site.

Collecting Information about You/ Use of Cookies

You may visit our site without revealing any of your personal information. If you wish to

contact us through email, an online inquiry form will request you to provide personal

information, including your full name and email address, phone number, mailing address, age,

and other demographic information. We use this information to send you information you

request. Unless specifically provided in a declaration statement provided to you prior to

submitting the form, all data collected through our website will be solely for internal use. We do

not sell or share your information with other parties. We may share online application/inquiry

information with an educational institution or a local service contractor in connection with

assisting you in pursuing the short term study in U.S. schools you select as provided in the online

declaration. Any such personal information will not be stored on or be accessible via this site.

Also when you visit the site, we may collect the following types of anonymous information: the

Internet domain address, IP address, domain server, type of computer and type of web browser

used to visit our site. That type of information (often referred to as traffic data) will remain

anonymous and is not considered personal information unless you voluntarily tell us personally

identifiable information and it is combined with the traffic data. Traffic data helps us analyze

how the site is used, demographic data and improving your experience on the site. We may

share anonymous traffic data and results of analysis of traffic data that does not include any

personal information with advertisers and other third-party service providers.

We do not currently use computer “cookies,” which are small amounts of data that we transfer to

your computer’s hard drive through your web browser, but we reserve the right to do so in the

future. We will amend this Web Privacy Policy prior to doing so.

The use of cookies by third-party advertising companies and networks is subject to their own

privacy policies.2
