Our servers are located in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that any information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States. By using our Site or providing your personal information to us, you consent to this transfer and to the collection, storage, processing and use of your personal information in the United States.

Collection of Personal Information
When you create a user account on the Site, register for courses, or purchase materials directly from us through the Site, we ask you for personally identifiable information, such as your name, postal address, telephone number, email address, and credit card information (“Personal Information”). Adventis will use your personal information only for the purposes for which you provide it, as well as to operate, maintain, and provide to you all of the features and functionality of the Site.
You may choose to receive notifications of new products and services or upcoming courses that we think may be of interest to you. If you no longer wish to receive these notifications, you may let us know at any time by sending an email to “firstname.lastname@example.org” or contacting us as described below.
Anonymous Information Gathered through the Site
Adventis may track and record certain non-personal information of Site users, including your computer’s IP address, operating system, type of browser, referring URL, and time spent on the Site, in order to gain aggregate data that may be analyzed for trends and statistics about how our visitors use the Site. Adventis may use accumulated aggregate non-personal data for several purposes including, but not limited to, Site traffic analysis, evaluation of Adventis’ products and services, and program planning.
Adventis may employ “cookies” to provide visitors with tailored information to facilitate a person’s use of the Site. A “cookie” is an element of data that a website sends to a visitor’s browser which, in turn, may store that element on the visitor’s hard drive or memory. Any cookies sent by Adventis will be marked so that they will be accessible only by the Site. A visitor may block or delete Adventis’ cookies from the hard drive, but by disabling cookies, certain Site features and functionality may no longer work properly, or at all.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
We do not share your Personal Information with anyone except our employees and service providers, such as the companies that help us operate the Site. Credit card transactions are handled by a third-party financial institution and its vendors, which receive the credit card number and other personal identifying information to verify the credit card numbers and process transactions. We may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information, such as how many users clicked on a particular advertisement. We may use a third-party provider to track and record non-personal information of Site users and provide us with reports based on such information. These providers may use that anonymous information for their internal purposes. The information we share with them does not identify you individually or enable them to contact you.

Adventis does not knowingly collect any information from children under age thirteen. If you discover that we have collected information from children under age thirteen, please notify us via email at “email@example.com.” If a child we know to be under age thirteen sends us an email with a question or comment, we may respond using that email address but we will not keep the email address or use it again.
Adventis will use reasonable efforts to safeguard any Personal Information that you provide through the Site. Nevertheless, no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
