Personally Identifying Information. When you register for our classes, subscribe to our newsletters, fill out a survey, or request information from the KREE Site, we will use our registration screens and online forms to collect personally identifying information such as your name, address, e-mail address, and credit card information (“personal data”). We may also collect some or all of this personal data from you through our print enrollment forms, or if your employer offers one of our courses. In addition, if you send us an e-mail or communicate with us offline, we may collect the personal data that you voluntarily provide us at that time.
We may use your personal data in the following ways:
We use a service provider to track and analyze non-personal data, such as usage and volume statistical information from site visitors. This anonymous data will not be linked to your personal data. We use your anonymous data to obtain general statistics regarding the use of the KREE Site and its specific Web pages and to evaluate how our visitors use and navigate our Web site on an aggregate basis.
In an effort to provide you with the most relevant Web site content and marketing materials, we may also use embedded pixel technologies to help track site usage and response to our marketing campaigns. Again, the anonymous information we capture through this mechanism is not linked to your personal data.

Your California Privacy Rights
Last Updated: September, 2011
Beginning on January 1, 2005, California’s “Shine the Light” law provides California residents with the right to receive disclosures about any sharing of their personal information with other companies.
If you are a California resident and you provided your personal information to Anthony Schools, Jones College, Dearborn Real Estate Institute, Leonard-Hawes Real Estate School, Kaplan Real Estate Schools, Kaplan Professional Schools Nevada, Southern Nevada School of Real Estate, Inspection Training Associates, or PROSOURCE Educational Services (collectively “Kaplan Professional Schools”), then, once each calendar year, you may submit a written request for information about the information we shared, if any, with other companies for their use in direct marketing. To submit your written request, please send an E-mail to http://www.kapre.com/contact with “Request for California Privacy” in the Requests/Comments section. Please be sure to include your California postal address and to identify which of the Kaplan Professional Schools received your personal data.
Within 30 days of receiving your request, we will send you a list of the categories of personal information disclosed to third parties for third-party direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year, along with the names and addresses of these third parties.
We reserve our right not to respond to requests sent more than once in a calendar year, or requests submitted to an address other than the one posted in this notice.
Please note that the California “Shine the Light” law does not cover all information sharing. Our disclosure only includes information covered by the law.
FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS AND PRIVACY ACT
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords eligible students and their parents certain rights with respect to their education records including:
Family Compliance Office
U.S. Department of Education
400 Maryland Avenue, SW
Washington, DC 20202-4605
The rights afforded to, and consent required of, parents under this Act transfer from the parents to the student once the student becomes eligible.
DIRECTORY INFORMATION PUBLIC NOTICE
In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), Kaplan University maintains an online directory for the University community. Upon the first day of attendance at the University, students’ profile listings, including student names and user names, become available to the University community (students, faculty, and administrators). The online directory may also include information commonly referred to as “directory information.” The University designates the following categories of student information as directory information:
The University does not accept responsibility for information published by users in the directory and reserves the right to delete or modify information posted to the directory that is abusive, inflammatory, defamatory, infringing of intellectual property, or otherwise inappropriate in an academic environment. Students who improperly use the directory or any information it contains may be subject to disciplinary action. Students have the ability to enter or restrict the listing of personal directory information through an online user interface. Upon withdrawal from the University, student directory information will be removed. Upon graduation from the University, student directory information will become eligible for inclusion in an alumni directory. Additionally, the University may release directory information to third parties without prior consent of students. Directory information may be disclosed by the University at its discretion for any purpose including, but not limited to, requests from law enforcement agencies and degree verification requests from prospective employers. Currently enrolled students may choose to withhold disclosure of their directory information by obtaining the Directory Information Withholding Request Form from the Campus Registrar (onsite) or the Kaplan University Office of the Registrar (online), completing the form, and returning it to the Campus Registrar/Kaplan University Office of the Registrar. The University will honor a student’s request to withhold directory information; however, cannot assume responsibility for subsequently contacting the student for permission to release information to prospective employers, relatives, or other persons. The failure on the part of any student to specifically request that his or her directory information be withheld indicates individual approval for disclosure. Additionally, the student’s request to withhold directory information will not affect previous disclosures made by the University prior to receipt of the request.
