The Site is owned and operated by Symbiosis Educational Consultants, LLC (who we refer to, together with our affiliates, as “Symbiosis,” “us,” “we,” or “our,” depending in the context).

We take the privacy of users of this site seriously. References in this Privacy Policy to “you” and “your” refer to you as a visitor to and user of the Site.

This Privacy Policy explains:

  • What information we collect, how we collect that information, and how we use that information,
  • When and with whom we may share information we collect, and
  • Your choices regarding your personal information.

This Privacy Policy applies only to information provided and collected through the Site. It does not apply to information that we or other parties may collect through other means, such as through any business relationship between us and your institution. This Privacy policy also does not apply to information that you submit on other websites, even if we communicate with you on those sites, or provide a link to those sites through our Site. For example, if you post something on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, or other social media or networking sites, that information is governed by the privacy policies of those sites, not by this Privacy Policy.



How We Collect Personal Information

“Personal Information” refers to information that can be used to personally identify you, a specific individual. Different states and laws define Personal Information (or similar terms, such as “personally identifiable information”) differently, but Personal Information generally includes information such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, and phone number. It may also include the IP address of your computer or mobile device if that IP address can be associated with other Personal Information and used to identify a particular person, or geo-location information, again if that information can be used to pinpoint a specific party.

We will collect Personal Information from you only if you voluntarily provide it to us. For example, when you contact us, such as through the “Contact Us” or similar links on the Site, or when you subscribe our resources, we will have access to your name, email address, and any other information you choose to include in your correspondence. If you participate in any other interactive area of our Site, we will collect any Personal Information that you include as a part of your participation.

In addition, some mobile network providers (“Mobile Provider”) in the U.S. are required to use technology that tracks the physical location of mobile devices that use their service. Depending on your Mobile Provider and mobile device, we may automatically receive this information, which, as noted above may be considered Personal Information. Most mobile devices provide users with the ability to disable location services. These controls are usually located in the mobile device’s settings menu. If you have questions about how to disable your mobile device’s location services, you should contact your Mobile Provider or your mobile device manufacturer.

How We Use Personal Information

We use the Personal Information we collect through the Site to respond to your inquiries, to provide you with the resources and services you request, and to contact you regarding other services we offer that may be of interest to you. We may also use Personal Information collected through the Site for research regarding the effectiveness of the Site and our business planning, marketing, advertising, and sales efforts. In addition, if we begin to offer services that use location tracking (“pinpointing”) information, then if we have your “opt-in” consent to do so we may use and store that information to provide location-based services, including location-targeted advertising.

We may combine and enhance the Personal Information we receive with information we receive from third parties as long as we use the combined information as described in this Privacy Policy. In addition, we may use your Personal Information to generate non-personal information, such as demographic information that helps us understand the general characteristics of our users. When we do so, we will take reasonable measures to ensure that the information is no longer personally identifiable and cannot later be used to identify you.

You are in control over whether you provide us with any Personal Information. If you are not comfortable with our accessing and using the Personal Information as described, you should not provide it (and should take steps to disable any technology that automatically provides us with Personal Information). This may affect our ability to provide you with information and services through the Site; however, that is your choice.



How We Collect Non-Personal Information

Whenever you interact with the Site, we automatically receive and record information from your browser, such as your IP address, the type of browser or application you are using to access the Site, the identity of the Site page or feature you are requesting. None of this information, on its own, is considered Personal Information (unless and until it is actually combined with Personal Information in a way that would allow someone to identify a specific individual), and we refer to it in this Privacy Policy as “NPI.”

Our Site may use “cookies” or other tracking technologies to track how you use the Site. We also may send instructions to your computer or device using JavaScript or other computer languages to gather the sorts of information described above and other details about your interactions with the Site.  A cookie is a file stored on your computer or device to uniquely identify your browser or to store information or settings on your computer or device.  If applicable, our advertising partners may also transmit cookies to your browser, application, or mobile device when you click on ads that appear on the Site. Clicking on a link to a third party website from our Site may also allow that third party website to also transmit cookies to you.

We may also use “web beacons”, i.e. “web bugs” or “single–pixel” or “clear” GIFs, on the Site. Web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for us and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their website.

You may adjust your web browser software if you do not wish to receive cookies or web beacons, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of the Site’s features. Please refer to your browser or email software instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. You may also request to opt-out of an advertiser’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative or the Digital Advertising Alliance. You may request to opt-out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting Please note that your request to opt out will be subject to all applicable terms on those third-party websites, in addition to this Privacy Policy.

How We Use Non-Personal Information

In addition to the uses described above for automatically-collected NPI, we may use this information to analyze trends, administer the Site, and gather broad demographic data for aggregate use.

We may also use NPI and other de-identified information (i.e. information that cannot be used to identify you) for any lawful business purpose without any obligation or accounting to you. For example, we can use NPI for developing products, services, and providing those offerings to other users and third parties.



We may share information with third parties in the following circumstances:

  • We may employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and we may need to share Personal Information with them to provide services to you. For example, such parties may handle our data management and/or email distribution. Unless we tell you differently, they do not have any right to use your Personal Information beyond what is necessary to assist us.
  • We may share information, including Personal Information, with our corporate affiliates for our and their legitimate business purposes.
  • We will share Personal Information with third parties for other purposes if we have your express “opt-in” consent to do so.

  • We may share information, including Personal Information, in connection with, during negotiations of, or as a part of the closing of any merger, sale of company assets, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company.

We do not sell, rent, or lease any Personal Information that we collect about you through the Site to anyone for any purpose, other than as disclosed.



We use commercially reasonable security measures to prevent unauthorized persons from accessing our files or tampering with our technology and to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. However we cannot and do not guarantee the security of any information. This is especially true for any information that is transmitted electronically and that is unprotected until it reaches our servers.



Correcting, Updating, Accessing, or Removing Personal Information

If you want to correct, update, or remove any Personal Information that you have provided to us, or if you no longer want to receive information from us, you can contact us at Please note that we may not be able to completely remove Personal Information from our systems in certain circumstances, such as if it may be necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, if required by law, or as retained in our data backup systems or cached or archived pages. All of your Personal Information that we keep will continue to be subject to the terms of the Privacy Policy to which you have previously agreed.

In addition, please note that notwithstanding your email preferences, we may need to contact you as required by law, or to complete any open inquiries.

Your California Privacy Rights

California law permits users that are residents of California to request the following information regarding our disclosure of your Personal Information to third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes (a) a list of certain categories of personal information that we have disclosed to certain third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year; (b) the identity of certain third parties that received personal information from us for their direct marketing purposes during that calendar year; and (c) examples of the products or services marketed (if we have that information). If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please email us at



Do Not Track

Currently, certain browsers (including Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Internet Explorer) offer a “no not track” (“DNT”) option. The DNT option sends a signal to websites visited by the user about the user’s DNT preference, if any, set on the browser. We do not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals. We cannot make this commitment because no common industry standard for DNT has been adopted by industry groups, technology companies, or regulators.

Third Party Services

Some of our Site features may be served by third parties, including advertisers, ad networks and servers, content providers, and application providers. These third parties may use cookies and/or web beacons and/or other tracking technology when you use our Site. These third parties may be able to associate the information they collect with your Personal Information, or they may collect information about your online activities over time and across other websites and online services. They may use this information to provide you with behavioral advertising or other targeted content. We cannot control third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should content the responsible provider directly.
