What information we collect
NOLS is committed to securing any of your data that we collect online and to only collecting what we need to serve our community.
This policy is designed so that you understand what information is collected by NOLS when you visit our website, what we do with that data, and how you can review/correct your data.
Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
When you are simply browsing our website we collect very little data about you as a person. We do automatically collect information about how you use the website so that we can make it better and improve the user experience (for example, making our pages flow in the most logical way possible and making it faster to load the pages).
If you are applying for a NOLS course through the NOLS website, we require that you create an account so you may access specific content related to your requests. If you are downloading content from our site, signing up for a newsletter, or requesting more information from us, we will prompt you to enter additional information such as first and last name, email address, and phone number so that we can best address your requests for information.
We share this type of information within NOLS to use as part of our everyday business practices, such as processing your requested transactions, maintaining your account, and responding to court orders and legal investigations. We also share information within NOLS so that we can offer relevant products, benefits, and services to you.
When you are no longer an active customer, we may continue to share your information internally as described in this notice.
NOLS does not sell your information to external companies and only shares with key third party partners to leverage their services on your behalf. You can see more about our use of third party services below.
