Information We Collect

Personal Data is any information about an individual from which that individual can be identified.  Your name, email, contact address, and payment information are examples of personal data. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data). We collect Personal Data from you in various ways, including when you visit the Site(s), create an account with us, subscribe, access our products, use our Apps, answer surveys, participate in our social media communities, such as on Facebook, and when you send us feedback.  

When you log-on to the Sites 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 agree to the use of cookies in this way. Most web browsers can be set to inform you when a cookie has been sent to you and provide you with the opportunity to refuse that cookie.  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 (1×1), 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.

If a third party purchases a subscription on your behalf, such third party may provide us with Personal Data about you, including your first name, last name, contact and email address.  We may also collect Personal Data about you from our business partners and other Kaplan owned companies.  We may collect Personal Data from publicly available sources or third parties.
