Use of the Information We Collect
Your personally identifiable information will not be sold to advertisers or spammers.
If you provide your email address at our website, we may use your email address to contact you and notify you of the status of your course registration, or regarding details pertinent to your business transaction with RTI. Generally, you cannot opt-out of receiving certain communications such as transaction and service-related communications and administrative messages during the course of the business transaction itself.
RTI may use anonymous information collected through our website to improve the quality of the website. This information may help us to diagnose problems, maintain security, and provide services users want. RTI may determine user demographics, interests, and behaviour and may share such anonymous information with others. For example, we may provide demographic or usage information to an organization so they may see how many users are located in a specific geographic area. At no time does this anonymous information contain personally identifiable data.
Sharing of Information
We share your personally identifiable information in three cases: (1) with your permission, (2) as required by law, and (3) change of ownership, each as more fully described in the paragraphs below.
We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share information when we believe it is necessary to comply with the law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
If the ownership of all or substantially all of RTI’s business, or substantial portions of the business owned by RTI, were to change, your information may be transferred to the new owner so the new owner can continue providing services to you. In any such case, your information would remain subject to the protections provided in this policy.
Please remember that anyone who has access to your Facebook username and password may be able to access your personal information; therefore, we encourage you to keep your password secret to prevent any unwanted access.
RTI does not knowingly collect or solicit information from anyone under the minimum age requirement.
