UWC-USA respects the privacy of every individual who visits this website. This policy outlines the information UWC-USA may collect and how that information may be used.
Use of Personal Information
We do not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it by sending us email, participating in a survey, or completing an online form. When a user submits personally identifiable information, it is used only for the purpose stated at the time of collection. Personal information submitted will not be transferred to any non-affiliated third parties unless otherwise stated at the time of collection.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ personal information. Whenever users submit personal information (such as contact info or credit card info) via online forms, registration, or online purchase, upon submission that information is encrypted via the highest level of SSL (Secured Sockets Layer) available. Servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment. Under no circumstances are credit card numbers permanently stored on our website servers.
Where consent for the use and disclosure of personal information is required, the school will seek consent from the appropriate person. In the case of a student’s personal information, the school will seek the consent from the student and/ or parent depending on the circumstances and the student’s mental ability and maturity to understand the consequences of the proposed use and disclosure.
