Privacy Policy

Terms of Use and Privacy Policy for Use of OnlineMastersDegrees.net (Effective February 10, 2016)

Thank you for your interest in using the content and services available on our website. This document outlines the conditions of using our website and the way in which OnlineMastersDegrees.net gathers and applies various types of information to deliver content and related products and services to you. Your use of our website implies that you agree to these Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

In general, we collect information in two main categories:

1) Submitted Information

OnlineMastersDegrees.net maintains and provides web-based forms for the voluntary submission of contact information -- including one's name, phone number, email address and mailing address -- to offer the services our visitors request. We may also collect various other types of information as needed to suggest relevant products and services. Upon collecting your information, we store and share it with educational institutions and other third parties to provide you with information on schools, programs and educational services as needed.

By voluntarily submitting this information, you legally allow OnlineMastersDegrees.net and its affiliated partners to contact you via phone, SMS, email or direct mail, in accordance with all significant laws, regarding education options and any other relevant topics.

Below is more information on this and other key topics. If you wish to unsubscribe from any email communications from either OnlineMastersDegrees.net or one of our partners, you may do so through a hyperlink in the email message to opt out. If you take this action, you will be removed from the email list and will no longer receive messages from the source of the communication.

2) Automatic Information

OnlineMastersDegrees.net, like most websites, collects and stores certain types of anonymous information from its visitors in order to provide a more engaging user experience and make necessary improvements to the site. To that end, we leverage "cookies" to collect anonymous information, to be applied to website optimization, analytics and tailored marketing purposes, among other uses. This collected data may include your IP address and the versions of your browser and operating system you are using. You mind find more information about our use of cookies below within this document.

When using OnlineMastersDegrees.net, we assume that you recognize that the data we collect may be shared with educational institutions, affiliated organizations and other third parties to offer you information on degrees, along with informing you of education-related products and services. In addition, we assume you consent to us releasing any information we collect -- personally identifiable or otherwise -- to companies that provide administration services to OnlineMastersDegrees.net. This may include, for example, email services.

When you submit personal information to our website, you automatically grant both OnlineMastersDegrees.net and our affiliated entities to contact you -- including through phone, text message, direct mail and email -- to deliver various types of information on education-related products and services. This action also grants us, our affiliates and our partners, the right to contact you, regardless of your registration on the Do Not Call list or protections under other applicable laws, for a period of time. You effectively void federal and state Do Not Call requirements and may also offer an exemption for us from other applicable laws and regulations.

Additionally, your submission of personal information to our website allows us the right to release this information as required by law (such as for an subpoena or other legal procedure). Please note that we only exercise this right when we believe in good faith that it is necessary to preserve our rights, ensure your safety or the safety of others, investigate possible fraud, respond to a government entity and/or any circumstance in which OnlineMastersDegrees.net enters into an acquisition, merger or sale of some or all of its assets to a third party.

Our Cookie Policy
