We collect two types of information from users:
By using TheBestDegrees.org, you acknowledge and consent to the collection of automatic information each time you use our website. You also agree that the automatic information we collect may be shared with third-party organizations such as schools and website affiliates. Third parties use anonymous data to provide information about educational programs, college degrees, and products and services relevant to the educational industry.
You also acknowledge and agree that TheBestDegrees.org has the right to release collected information, including information that may personally identify you, to businesses that provide our company with administrative and technology services (such as an email delivery service). Therefore, you grant us and any of our partners, affiliates, or vendors the right to contact you for a period of time. By doing so, you are relinquishing the rights afforded to you under the Do Not Call List or other relevant laws. Your submission is an omission to the Do Not Call requirements enacted by state and federal governments, and it may exempt TheBestDegrees.org from other relevant laws.
Submitted information is the information you give us voluntarily. It may include your name, mailing address, telephone number, and electronic mailing address, along with any other information needed to match users to educational products and services. We also share information with schools and other third parties so that they may provide additional information about degrees, programs of study, and other educational products and services.
By voluntarily submitting your personal information, you agree that TheBestDegrees.org, as well as any affiliated partners and schools, may contact you by mail, email, telephone, or text message in accordance with all relevant laws. If you receive electronic communications from us, an affiliated school, or a third party, you have the right to unsubscribe by clicking a link provided in the email message. Doing so will remove you from the sender’s mailing list.
