Information Collection and Use

In order to use the training programs on this Web site, you must first complete the registration form and create a user name, user profile and password. During registration you are required to give us personal information such as contact, job, education and career information. Additionally, as you proceed with this training, we collect your training assessment results in order to monitor your progress in the program. We use this information to generate progress reports for our client companies.

If you request information from us through our 'Request Info' or 'Contact Us' links, we reserve the right to contact you once to fulfill your request. You will not be put on any mailing list nor will you receive multiple e-mails unless you request subsequent responses.
