This Privacy Policy covers the following:

Information We Collect

Personal data is any information about an individual from which that individual can be identified (“Personal Data”). Your name, address, phone number and bank account number are examples of personal data. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data). We collect and store Personal Data from you in various ways, including when you visit the Site, create an account with us, register for an event, purchase and use products or services, use our Apps, take an exam, answer surveys, upload or post to the Site, participate in our social media communities and when you send us feedback.  We also may request information about your interests and activities, your date of birth, and other demographic information.

When you provide Personal Data to us, the information may be sent to servers located in the United States and other countries around the world. When you log-on to our websites or to our App(s), we automatically receive information from your device, including your IP address and location. We and our service providers may use “cookies” to keep, and sometimes track, information about you, and to create a personalized web experience. Cookies are small data files that are stored on your device’s web browser. Cookies track where you travel on our Site and what you look at and purchase. You can decide if and how your computer will accept a cookie by configuring your preferences or options in your browser. However, if you choose to reject cookies, you may not be able to use certain online products, services or features on the Site. We and our service providers may also use so-called "pixel tags", "web beacons", "clear GIFs" or similar means (collectively, "Pixel Tags") in connection with some Site pages and HTML-formatted email messages to, among other things, compile aggregate statistics about Site usage and response rates. A pixel tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel (1x1), that is ordinarily not visible to Site visitors and may be associated with cookies on the visitors’ hard drives. Pixel Tags allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver branded services, and to target our promotional or advertising campaigns and determine their effectiveness.

Information Provided from Other Sources

We may also obtain Personal Data about you from other Kaplan businesses, business partners, contractors, and other third parties. If your parent, school, employer or other third party purchases products on your behalf and for your use, or if an agent refers you to Kaplan, such third parties may provide us with Personal Data about you, including your first name, last name and email address. 

How We Use Information

We will only use your Personal Data as permitted by law and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.  Most commonly, we may use your Personal Data in the following ways:

  • To fulfill a request for the purpose you provided Personal Data, for example to enroll you in an event or program, respond to a specific inquiry, or allow access to a product and deliver the services;
  • To administer and personalize your learning experience;
  • To manage, support, improve and develop our business;
  • To provide you with information and offers about our products or services;
  • To send you information about select third party's products or services that may be of interest to you;
  • To allow you access to the Site to post comments or upload content or communicate with others;
  • To better understand your needs and interests (i.e.surveys, research);
  • To comply with our legal obligations or to enforce our terms and conditions;
  • To protect, investigate and deter against fraudulent, unauthorized or illegal activity; and
  • As otherwise specifically described to you at the point of collection.

Mobile Devices, Phone Calls and SMS: If you provide us with a telephone number when submitting a form or while interacting with the Site and you affirmatively consent to be contacted at that number, we may contact you by telephone and/or text message utilizing automated technology at such telephone number(s).  Standard messaging, data and other fees may apply. You understand that this consent is not required to purchase products or services from Kaplan.

How We Share Information

Disclosure of Your Personal Data:  We do not share your Personal Data with third parties for their marketing purposes, though we may share your Personal Data with other Kaplan companies. We may disclose your Personal Data in response to legal process, to protect our rights, as otherwise required by law, or for the prevention or detection of a crime. We may share your Personal Data with trusted third parties who  perform certain services on our behalf, including those who help deliver our products and services, help us process transactions, such as charging your credit card when you make purchases, and otherwise help us operate our business. These third parties are not authorized by us to use your Personal Data except in connection with providing services for us. Kaplan may disclose anonymous data to third parties. We may also share your information with third parties that you have specifically designated as authorized to receive information from us.

If payment was made by a third party for your use of a product or service, Kaplan may provide that third party with access to your Personal Data and other data, such as usage and performance. For example, if Kaplan provides you access to a program in your capacity as a student of a school that has contracted with Kaplan for the service, Kaplan may share your activity, performance and other data with your school, even if you contributed to the payment in whole or in part yourself. If you purchased the Kaplan’s Nursing Admissions Test for application to a specific nursing school, your name and scores will be sent to that nursing school.

In connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the possible sale of our business, a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or if our business enters into a joint venture with another business entity, we may disclose your Personal Data with them who may then provide you with information about their products and services.

The third parties to whom we may disclose Personal Data to deliver the services have their own privacy policies which describe how they use and disclose personal information. Those policies will govern the use, handling and disclosure of your Personal Data once we have shared it with those third parties as described in this Privacy Policy. If you want to learn more about their privacy practices, we encourage you to visit the websites of those third parties. These entities or their servers may be located either inside or outside the United States.

Transfer of Data Outside of Your Home Country: Your Personal Data will be held in the United States. Your Personal Data may also be stored, processed and accessed in other countries where Kaplan has facilities or where you are located. You consent to the transfer of your Personal Data outside your country, including to the United States.

Third Party Websites and Links

Third Party Websites:  Some of the products and services advertised on the Site(s) are sold and delivered by third parties (“Third Party Sellers”). The Site(s) may also provide links to third party websites. This Privacy Policy governs collection and use of Personal Data by Kaplan. This Privacy Policy does not apply to Third Party Sellers or to third party websites and Kaplan makes no representation about their data practices or policies.

Data Security

We employ physical, electronic and managerial procedures to protect your information both online and offline from access by unauthorized persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. However, as effective as these security measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our systems, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We will update this Privacy Policy from time to time. When we post changes to this Privacy Policy, we will revise the “Effective Date” at the bottom of this Privacy Policy.
