Data Collection

The Academy may use your Internet Protocol ("IP") address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our website by identifying which parts of our site are most heavily used and which portion of our audience comes from within our network. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that user sessions may be tracked, but the users will remain anonymous. We occasionally monitor search terms that users enter into the Academy Search Engine, but this tracking is never associated with individual users.

Data Usage

The Academy uses the information gathered above to tailor site content to user needs, and to generate aggregate statistical reports.

The Academy does not provide third parties personally identifying information for which such dissemination is not authorized by the person. We may provide to third parties aggregate information.

Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested. If you choose to email us with your personal information, we will use this information to respond to your inquiry or request. There are times when your email will be forwarded within the Academy to employees who are better able to assist you.

Information Security

The Academy server has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.
