Care Courses Privacy, Security, and Expiration Policies

1. Student Information Privacy Policy

It is the policy of Care Courses to only release student information, including information regarding the passing or failing of courses or of certificate status to the student him/herself and state authorities as requested. We maintain an Authorization to Release Information form here, which students must sign, scan and email (or sign and mail) to us so that we may release information about their coursework and certificates to other persons.

2. Consumer Data Privacy Policy

The Care Courses School, Inc. has a firm commitment to our visitor’s privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website. Information collected is never sold, rented, loaned, or the like to any third party for any reason. All information submitted is considered confidential in nature and will not be disclosed to anyone except under a subpoena in a court of law. Your IP address is used to help identify you and your shopping cart and our shopping cart uses cookies to track your shopping cart, both of which are used only for the ordering process. Our shopping cart uses an order form for customers to request information, products, and services. We collect visitor’s contact information including e-mail addresses and financial information (like their credit card numbers). Contact information from the order form is used to send orders to customers. The customer’s contact information is used for communicating with our customers on order related issues. Once or twice a year we send our new catalog through the U.S. Postal Service to the address a customer provides. If you wish not to receive the new catalog, please notify us by email at: info@carecourses.com.  Financial information that is collected is used to bill the purchaser for products or services.  

3. Security Method of Transmission 

Our shopping cart uses technology that ensures your personal and payment information is kept confidential and secure. When you provide us with any personal information including your name, address, e-mail and credit card number, it is processed over a secure connection on secure servers. We use Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt all information you provide before sending it to our servers. TLS is the industry standard and the best software available for secure e-commerce transactions. "HTTPS" appears at the start of all Care Courses' URLs. The "HTTPS" indicates that the webpage is secured with TLS encryption.

4. Course Expiration Policy

Care Courses can only issue a certificate of completion for a course if that course is successfully completed prior to its expiration date. Courses expire one year (365 days) from the date of purchase. The course expiration date is listed next to the enrollment code in the online course enrollment code email and next to the enrollment code in the printed CourseBook enrollment code insert. CourseBook enrollment code inserts are located on the inside back cover of each mailed CourseBook. Course expiration dates are displayed next to each order in the Orders area of your Care Courses account. Failure to successfully complete a course by the expiration date will result in the course expiring and no certificate being issued. Certificates issued for courses that are successfully completed by the course expiration date do not expire. Expired courses are not eligible for refunds.
