The National Labor College (NLC) has created this privacy notice to demonstrate our firm commitment to Internet privacy. NLC reserves the right to modify this policy from time to time so we encourage you to check this page when revisiting this website.

As an accredited institution of higher education NLC at all times operates in compliance with the terms of the Federal Educational Records Privacy Act (FERPA) with respect to qualifying student records and information.

The following sets forth the information gathering and dissemination practices for this website. The type and amount of information received depends on how you use the site.

When you visit the NLC website, we automatically obtain information from you about the name of your Internet service provider, the browser and type of computer you are using, the website that referred you to us, the pages you request and the date and time of those requests. We use this information on an aggregate basis to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of the site to our visitors. For example, we use this information to track which pages are most popular among visitors as a whole. We do not track the pages you or any individual visitor may look at during a visit to our site and we do not collect any other information without your knowledge and permission. We do not collect or store personally identifiable information, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address or phone number, unless you provide that information.

In the event you contact us to request information and/or material, any information we collect, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, type of request you are making and any additional information you provide, is collected and stored by the NLC. The information is used to fulfill your request and track aggregate information about usage of these features. The NLC makes every effort to ensure the secure collection and transmission of your sensitive information using industry accepted data collection and encryption methodologies.

The NLC may exchange limited personally identifiable information (such as name and e-mail address) with partner organizations.
We use a secure server for processing payments and financial information. All credit card information entered online is immediately processed by the authorized clearinghouse for financial institutions. Authorized NLC employees may access this information only for the limited purpose of validating payments and issuing credits. The NLC does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

NLC is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other websites linked to this one by hypertext. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site, and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.

This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect the transmission of information you submit to us. You are on a secure page when the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer become locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just “surfing.” The information submitted during the online registration process (via SSL) is stored on our secure server, and no personal data is ever stored by means of internet cookies.

We also protect user information off-line. All user information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need information to perform a specific job (e.g., our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Finally, the servers that store sensitive information are kept in a secure environment.
