Presidio Graduate School’s operations are located primarily in the United States (U.S.). If you provide information to us, the information will be transferred out of the European Union (E.U.) and sent to the U.S. (The adequacy decision on the E.U.-U.S. Privacy became operational on August 1, 2016. This framework protects the fundamental rights of anyone in the E.U. whose personal data is transferred to the U.S. for commercial purposes. It allows the free transfer of data to companies that are certified in the U.S. under the Privacy Shield.) By providing personal information to us, you are consenting to its storage and use as described in this Policy.
Under the regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) of the E.U., you have certain rights as a Data Subject. These rights are as follows:
In addition to the rights above, we encrypt and anonymize your personal information whenever possible. We also have protocols in place in the unlikely event that we suffer a data breach and we will contact you if your personal information is ever at risk.
Presidio Graduate School takes precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (e.g. credit card information), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the webpage.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers and servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. This is all done to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure or modification of the user’s personal information under our control.
The company also uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for authentication and private communications to build users’ trust and confidence in the internet and website use by providing simple and secure access and communication of credit card and personal information.
