Privacy Policy

Your Privacy

College Credit Connection/PDE wishes to protect your privacy on the Web and in all areas where we connect with you. Please feel free to send any questions you may have about this privacy policy to us at Info@CollegeCreditConnection.com.

Our Principles

  1. Your privacy will be protected.
    CCC shares no information we receive about you with third parties, with the exception of Vanguard University's Registrar's Office, which is required for your enrollment at the University for college credit.
  2. We do not share mailing lists.
    CCC does not sell or exchange mailing lists.
  3. You will not be spammed.
    You will only receive email outreach messages from us if you make an inquiry about our work, if you are on a district mailing list, or if you request to be placed on a list receiving updates and news from us through email.
  4. We will address your privacy concerns promptly.
    If you receive our email news in error, or if you ever wish to unsubscribe, please let us know, we will do our best to solve the problem immediately.

Our Actions

We collect certain non-personal information when you interact with our website, such as the IP ("internet protocol") addresses of our site visitors. This information is used to analyze and improve the website as well as to provide our users with a fulfilling learning experience.

We use temporary cookies on our site if you register online.

We do not share the registration or enrollment information that you voluntarily provide to us with other organizations or use it for commercial purposes other than those you directly request. Responses to certain assignment questions may be used for marketing purposes on occasion, but would limit student name to only first name and/or initials. If you sign up for an interactive course workshop, we may give your email address to individual workshop participants who wish to join your site or share your resources. This would all be done with your permission at the beginning of the workshop course.

In other limited and exceptional circumstances, we may be required by law to disclose the information you submit. An investigation of credit card fraud would be an example of such circumstances.

If you use one of our online forms, the information you provide is entirely at your discretion.

  1. If you want to retrieve or correct your personal information that may be in our records:
    We comply happily with the Freedom of Information Act and the Privacy Act of 1974 to provide you certain rights to view your personal information maintained in our records. Upon request we will provide you with access to your contact information (e.g., name, address, phone number), and offer you the chance to correct inaccuracies.
  2. If you would like to opt out of our mailings and services:
    If you do not want to receive email or postal mail from us in the future, please let us know and we will comply. Give us the exact email or postal mail address you would like removed from our lists, and we will do it.
  3. A further note about security:
    If you send us an email message or use one of our online forms, please be aware that any transmissions conducted anywhere on the Internet cannot be guaranteed 100% secure. If you need to communicate sensitive information please consider doing so by Postal Mail or by phone. Once your information has been collected in our database, we have appropriate security measures in place at our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you.
  4. In the event of changes to this policy:
    We reserve the right to use site visitor information in the future for new, unanticipated uses not disclosed in this privacy notice. This is not because we foresee any change in our principles, but because ongoing advances in electronic interactivity may change the very ways you and we connect. Such changes are impossible to foresee. In any case, if our electronic information practices change in these ways, we will post such policy changes on our Web site. You will then have, as you do now, the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, please feel free to check back at our Web site periodically.

A Note on Copyrights

Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. — 107), the "fair use" of copyrighted work for purposes such as "criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research" is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether or not a particular use is fair, Section 107 sets out four factors that must be considered:

  1. the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
  2. the nature of the copyrighted work;
  3. the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
  4. the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work. Learners must recognize that in certain circumstances it may be difficult to distinguish between fair use and copyright infringement. There is no prescribed safe harbor for the number of words, lines, or notes that a learner may use without permission. The safest course is to err on the side of caution and seek permission from the copyright holder before using the copyrighted work.
