Last updated: 2-19-14

By visiting MarinersLearningSystem.com, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

Why do we collect your personal information?

  • We collect personal information from you to process orders, to provide access to our online classroom, to improve your website experience, to improve customer service and to send you marketing communications.

What Personal Information Does MarinersLearningSystem.com Collect?

  • We collect and store any information you enter on our Website or give to us in any other way. Information may include your name, address, phone number, email address and credit card information. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our site’s features. We also use the information you provide for purposes such as customizing/personalizing your shopping experience, communicating with you, and responding to your requests.

Automatic Information:

  • Examples of the information we collect and analyze include the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; login; e-mail address; password; computer and connection information such as browser type, version, and time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system, and platform; purchase history, the full Uniform Resource Locator (URL) clickstream to, thru, and from our Web site, including date and time; cookie number; products you viewed or searched for; and the phone number you used to call our customer service number. We may also use browser data such as cookies, Flash cookies (also known as Flash Local Shared Objects), or similar data on certain parts of our Web site for fraud prevention and other purposes. During some visits we may use software tools such as JavaScript to measure and collect session information, including page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), and methods used to browse away from the page. We may also collect technical information to help us identify your device for fraud prevention and diagnostic purposes.

Mobile:

  • When you visit MarinersLearningSystem.com from a mobile device, we may receive information about your location and your mobile device, including a unique identifier for your device. We may use this information to provide you with location-based services, such as advertising, search results, and other personalized content. Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services. If you have questions about how to disable your device ’s location services, we recommend you contact your mobile service carrier or device manufacturer.

E-mail Communication:

  • We often receive confirmation when you open an email from MarinersLearningSystem.com. We may also be able to track your clicks within our emails if your computer supports such capabilities. We will send you emails for updates pertaining to your order. We use emails to communicate with you for customer service issues as well as for marketing purposes such as newsletters, product recommendations and special offers. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.

Cookies:

  • A cookie is a small string of information that the website that you visit transfers to your computer for identification purposes. Cookies can be used to follow your activity on the website and that information helps us to understand your preferences and improve your website experience. Cookies are also used to remember for instance your user name and password. You can turn off all cookies, in case you prefer not to receive them. You can also have your computer warn you whenever cookies are being used. For both options you have to adjust your browser settings (like Internet Explorer). There are also software products available that can manage cookies for you. Please be aware though that when you have set your computer to reject cookies, it can limit the functionality of the website you visit and it's possible then that you do not have access to some of the features on the website.

Third Party Information Sharing:

  • We share customer information only as described below that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.

Third-Party Service Providers:

  • We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Business Transfers:

  • If the case arises that we sell our business, in such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that MarinersLearningSystem.com or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

Protection of MarinersLearningSystem.com and Others:

  • We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law or to protect the rights, property, or safety of MarinersLearningSystem.com, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Release does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.

Information Security:

  • We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. While we do transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing, we reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

Third Party Advertisers and Links to other Websites:

  • Our site includes third-party advertising and links to other Web sites. On both MarinersLearningSystem.com and unaffiliated sites, Mariners Learning System displays interest-based advertising using information you make available to us when you interact with our sites, content, or services. Interest-based ads, also sometimes referred to as personalized or targeted ads, are displayed to you based on information from activities such as purchasing on our sites, visiting sites that contain Mariners Learning System content or ads, interacting with Mariners Learning System tools, or using our payment services. We use cookies, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies (collectively, “cookies”). Cookies enable us to learn about what ads you see, what ads you click, and other actions you take on our sites and other sites. This allows us to provide you with more useful and relevant ads. We do not associate your interaction with unaffiliated sites with your identity in providing you with interest-based ads. We do not provide any personal information to advertisers or to third party sites that display our interest-based ads. However, advertisers and other third-parties (including the ad networks, ad-serving companies, and other service providers they may use) may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalized ad or content are part of the group that the ad or content is directed towards (for example, users in New Jersey who bought or browsed for captain’s licensing programs). Also, some third-parties may provide us information about you (such as the sites where you have been shown ads or demographic information) from offline and online sources that we may use to provide you more relevant and useful advertising. Our display advertising partner, AdRoll, enables us to present you with retargeting advertising on other sites based on your previous interaction with MarinersLearningSystem. The techniques our partners employ do not collect personal information such as your name, email address, postal address or telephone number. You can visit this page to opt out of AdRoll and their partners’ targeted advertising.

Information You Can Access:

  • MarinersLearningSystem.com gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with MarinersLearningSystem.com for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. Click here to log into your personal account to review or update your information.

What Choices Do You Have?

  • You always retain the option not to provide information; however, it even might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of site features such as our online classroom. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the prior version for our records. Contact us at Staff@MarinersLearningSystem.com or call 866-732-2278 if you do not want to receive legal notices from us, such as this Privacy Notice. Those notices will still govern your use of MarinersLearningSystem.com and it is your responsibility to review them for changes. The Help feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer. Because cookies allow you to take advantage of some essential MarinersLearningSystem.com features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Conditions of Use, Notices, and Revisions:

  • If you choose to visit MarinersLearningSystem.com, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice, including limitations on damages, resolution of disputes, and application of the law of the state of New Jersey. If you have any concern about privacy at MarinersLearningSystem.com, please contact us with a thorough description, and we will try to resolve it. Our business changes constantly, so our Privacy Notice will change also. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, but you should check our Web site frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
