The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices of the GRC CERTIFY site.
GRC CERTIFY seeks to ensure the ethical use of information collected online and to protect the privacy of those who use our Site. We follow these privacy practices:
1. Information we Receive and Use
When you apply for certification on a PARTNER site, you provide certain information in order to gain access to the certification exam and any issued certificates or evidence of certification status. Part of that information is your first and last name and your email address. GRC CERTIFY has access to this limited information so that it may administer your exams and issue any earned certifications. GRC CERTIFY also maintains information regarding any PARTNER certifications you earn.
2. Release to Third Parties
We never provide names, contact information or certification status to anyone. NOTE: If a certification exam has been arranged to be provided to you through any form of employer subscription or bundle purchase with a PARTNER, the manager of the subscription or bundle may view this information through a management dashboard provided by the PARTNER.
3. Use of Data
Personally identifiable information you give us will be used to:
a. Provide access to any PARTNER certification exam, issue certifications, and confirm certification status
b. Communicate with you in response to any questions, complaints or concerns you submit
5. How we store and protect information
GRC CERTIFY's policy is that our website may be used only by users who are over the age of 18. We do not intentionally collect any information from children or users that we have reason to believe are under the age of 18. However, if a parent learns that a child has submitted Personal Information to our website, the parent should contact us and that information will be deleted.
The GRC CERTIFY site may contain links to other sites, but we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies of other sites. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of each site you visit.
8. 'Do Not Track’ notifications
Some browsers allow you to automatically notify websites you visit not to track you using a “Do Not Track” signal. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many websites and online services, we currently do not alter our practices when we receive a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser.
9. Notification of Changes
Subject to certain exceptions prescribed by law, you have a right to access or request correction or deletion of most personal data that we have about you. If you think that any personal data we hold about you is inaccurate, you may contact us using the contact details below and we will take reasonable steps to ensure that the information is corrected. We may take steps to verify your identity before providing you access to your personal data.
If you send any request for access to or correction of your personal data, we will do our best to respond within a reasonable period after your request. We may retain all information you submit for backups, archiving, prevention of fraud, legal compliance or where we have a legitimate reason to do so.
