Privacy Policy



DCI Privacy Policy

Welcome to the Diploma and Career Institute’s Website (the “Website”).  Diploma and Career Institute and its affiliates (“we,” “our” or “us”) are committed to protecting your privacy, so we have adopted privacy practices to protect the information we collect from you.

This Privacy Policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit the Website or use any of our mobile application(s) (the “App”) (collectively, the Website and App are “Sites”) and our practices for collecting and using that information.

We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time, and if we make material changes to it, we will notify you by updating the Sites with the updated Privacy Policy.

You may wish to check the Privacy Policy from time to time, because by using the Sites, by providing requested information, or by using the Sites after any changes to this Privacy Policy are posted, you consent to the collection and use of your personal information as detailed in this Privacy Policy.

Types of Information Collected on DCI’s Sites: There are two types of information collected on DCI’s websites: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

  1. Personally Identifiable Information Personally Identifiable Information (“personal information”) is information that identifies you as an individual, such as your name, mailing address, email address, and age range. Personal information is obtained only when you voluntarily provide such information to us. DCI uses personal information to better understand your needs and interests and to provide you with better service.
  2. Non-Personally Identifiable Information Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“non-personal information”) is information that does not identify you as an individual. Non-personal information includes your browser type, IP address, the URL of the previous web site you visited, your browsing activity on the Sites, and other non-personal information. DCI may automatically collect certain types of non-personal information from you when using its Sites. You also authorize DCI to collect non-personal information in this manner. You also authorize DCI to collect any non-personal information that you may choose to voluntarily provide, such as information included in an anonymous response to a questionnaire or survey.

How We Collect Information: DCI collects data both when you provide information to us voluntarily and when you automatically provide information through your use of its Sites. a. Information You Provide Voluntarily If you choose to use certain services on the Sites, we may require you to provide contact and identity information. Where possible, we indicate which fields are required and which fields are optional. If you choose not to use a particular service or feature, you do not have to provide the contact or identity information it calls for. b. Information You Provide Automatically IP Address. The Sites may collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, server monitoring and diagnosis, and compiling aggregate information. When you visit a particular web page on any Sites, our servers may log your IP address. Cookies. DCI Sites may use cookie technology to improve your experience on the Sites and gather data for web site statistical reporting. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a web site that is saved on your computer by your web browser. It holds information a site may need to personalize your experience and gathers web site statistical data, such as which pages are visited, what is downloaded, your Internet Service Provider’s domain name and location, and the addresses of referring sites. By using the Sites, you authorize DCI to collect information through the use of cookies, provided that your browser is configured to accept them. Web Beacons. The Sites may use web beacons to serve advertising, enhance email advertising, and your track usage. If you visit a page on the Sites that contains a web beacon, it communicates with your computer to determine, among other things, whether you have been to that page before, or viewed a particular advertisement.

Who We Share Information With: DCI may employ other companies and individuals to perform services on behalf of DCI Sites, such as sending emails, providing marketing assistance, web site management and analyzing data.  Such companies and individuals will have access to personal and non-personal information only as necessary to perform these services and are not permitted to use it for any other purpose.  DCI may also work with other companies (“partners”) to provide co-branded services or promotions.  To provide such services to you, it may be necessary for us to share your personal information with our partners.  The partner will only be able to use the information as necessary to perform the requested service or in aggregate form for statistical reporting. When you go to other web sites, including those that link to or from our site, those other sites may collect personal and non-personal information about you. The information practices of those other sites are not covered by this Privacy Policy. You agree that DCI has no liability or responsibility for those sites or their own policies. We encourage you to read and understand the privacy policies on those sites.

DCI reserves the right to share your personal information with third parties if it believes such action is necessary in order to: (a) conform with the requirements of the law or to comply with legal process served upon us; (b) protect or defend its legal rights or property, DCI Sites, or other users; or (c) investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person or violations of the Terms and Conditions of the DCI Site.

Opting Out: If you provide your email address, DCI may periodically send you email messages describing updates, new features, and/or news related to the Sites. You can choose to stop receiving this email by following the unsubscribe instructions included in your email. If you do not explicitly choose to receive informational emails, the only email messages you will receive from DCI will be in response to email inquiries that you initiate.

Children’s online Privacy protection: The Sites do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that personal information on a child under the age of 13 has been collected, DCI will delete that information from our systems.


Information Security: No data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be secure. You agree that DCI cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to using the Sites and that any transmissions you make are at your own risk.
