Privacy Policy

This Agreement was last modified on November 28, 2016.

Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and make use of personal information. The following outlines our privacy policy.

Please read this Privacy Policy (“Agreement”, “Privacy Policy”) carefully before using http://accentprotraining.com, courses.accentprotraining.com, or http://howtosoundfluent.com (“the Sites”) operated by Accent Pro® Institute Inc. (“us”, “we”, “Accent Pro®”, or “our”). Capitalized terms are defined in this Agreement.

When accessing the Sites, we will learn certain information about you during your visit.

Similar to other commercial websites, our Sites utilize a standard technology called ‘cookies’ (see explanation below) and server logs to collect information about how our Sites are used. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Sites, and the websites visited just before and just after our own, as well as your IP address.

Use of Cookies

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

IP Addresses

IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data” so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.

Email Information

If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received online, mail and telephone. This also applies when you register for our Sites, sign up through any of our forms using your email address or make a purchase on these Sites. For further information see the email policies below.

How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?

We may obtain personally-identifying information about you when you visit our Sites, especially when you choose to provide such information to us. Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service and making available other items and services to our customers and prospective customers.

We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights.

Email Policies

We are committed to keeping your email address confidential. We do not sell, rent, or lease our subscription lists to third parties, and we will not provide your personal information to any third party individual, government agency, or company at any time unless strictly compelled to do so by law.

We will use your email address solely to provide timely information.

We will maintain the information you send via email in accordance with applicable federal law.

CAN-SPAM Compliance

In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, all e-mail sent from our organization will clearly state who the e-mail is from and provide clear information on how to contact the sender. In addition, all e-mail messages will also contain concise information on how to remove yourself from our mailing list so that you receive no further e-mail communication from us.

Choice/Opt-Out

Our Sites provide users the opportunity to opt out of receiving communications from us and our partners by reading the unsubscribe instructions located at the bottom of any email they receive from us at anytime.

How Do We Protect Your Information and Secure Information Transmissions?

Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private information to us by email. However, doing so is allowed, but at your own risk. Some of the information you may enter on our Sites may be transmitted securely via a secure medium known as Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL. Credit Card information and other sensitive information is never transmitted via email.

Accent Pro® may use software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of our Sites, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.

For the Sites’ security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, Accent Pro® may use software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
