Icon English Language Training Corp. ("IELT") maintains this website located at www.iconenglish.com and its associated websites, web pages, content and other materials (collectively the "Site") to provide to you information about Icon English Language Training Corp., its experience, capabilities, products and services. Your access to and use of the Site is subject to these Terms of Use and all applicable laws. By accessing the Site, you accept, without limitation or qualification, these Terms of Use. You should review the most current version of the Terms of Use often as they may be modified from time to time and the terms as modified will govern your use of the Site.

1. Generally

You are free to browse the Site. All material available on the Site is referred to as "Licensed Content." You may view and print portions of the Licensed Content for your own internal use but not for resale or other commercial use and not for use other than as provided in these Terms of Use. Licensed Content may change periodically and at any time. With some exceptions, IELT's website(s) do not target and are not intended for use by children under age 13. Except as may be permitted by local law, IELT will not knowingly contact children under age 13 about promotions or for marketing purposes without a parent's permission nor will it ask for more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in a given activity. Because many factors go into the decision-making process of acquiring products and services of this nature and everyone's particular circumstances and needs may differ, the Licensed Content is provided for informational purposes only.

2. Privacy

IELT values its relationship with visitors and customers and makes every effort to safeguard any Personal Information collected, while also making information available. Personal Information is defined as your name in combination with a credit card number, social security number or bank account number. Personal Information is not information that is publicly available such as your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, country of residence etc. or information you provide in connection with your submission of your resume or curriculum vitae. IELT collects information about you in several ways from different parts of the Site. For example, information you provide is collected and stored to permit you to receive IELT's communications which may include e-newsletters, case studies, and online support to existing customers. Information may also be collected when you communicate with IELT through the "Contact Us," "Customer Support," "Teacher Recruitment," or "Employment Opportunities" links on the Site, via e-mail, to request support, ask a question, apply for employment, report a problem or participate in promotions, sweepstakes or contests. If you contact IELT, it will keep a record of that session. It will also maintain a copy of your request or correspondence for a period of time after it forwards it to the appropriate IELT affiliate. For example, if you request information about products or services and you indicate that you live in one country, IELT will forward your request, including all information you provided, to its affiliate in such country which will then contact you. Once forwarded to the applicable affiliate, all information, including Personal Information, will be maintained pursuant to the website term of use established by and the laws governing the applicable affiliate. IELT automatically receives and records information on its server logs from your browser, including your IP address, IELT cookie information and your page requests. IELT may also occasionally ask users to complete surveys for research purposes, provide testimonials or submit ideas for improving our products and services.

IELT may use any information gained through the Site for any legal purpose. Generally, IELT uses information to provide maintenance and support to existing customers, customize Licensed Content, fulfill your information requests, improve services, contact you, conduct research and provide anonymous reporting for internal use and to third parties. IELT may combine information it has about you with information obtained from its affiliated companies, business partners or other companies or to develop, use and make available to third parties (at no charge or for a fee) aggregated information regarding trends, products, security/privacy patterns and research, internal record keeping and reporting, measuring and reporting learning, performance and other statistical information concerning any aspect of the Site. IELT will not report aggregated data in a manner that reasonably permits such information to be identified with any user nor will it sell your information. IELT does not expect to request or collect Personal Information from you at this time. However, any Personal Information you voluntarily provide to IELT will not be shared except under the guidelines established in this Privacy Section. Any material, information or other communication you transmit, upload or post to the Site or email to IELT, including testimonials and ideas (collectively, "Communications") will be considered non-confidential and nonproprietary and IELT will have no obligation to preserve the confidentiality or refrain from disclosing Communications. IELT and its designees will have no liability for and be free to copy, disclose, distribute, incorporate and otherwise use the Communications and all data, images, sounds, text, product ideas, suggestions or enhancements, as well as anything embedded therein for any and all commercial or noncommercial purposes without your consent and without remuneration to you.

IELT may set and access cookies on your computer for various purposes, including to secure transaction activities, if any, and enhance the performance of the Site. Generally, IELT may use cookies to remind it of who you are and to access your account information (if stored on its computers), to confirm your identity as an authorized IELT customer user, and/or to deliver to you more personalized service. IELT also collects IP addresses for system administration to include them in outgoing mail message headers.

If IELT were to merge with or be acquired by another company or if it were to cease operations, your information may be transferred to the surviving company and will be subject to that entity's privacy policy. IELT may disclose your personal information if it has reason to believe that disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action to enforce any of IELT's rights, including against you or a third party, for nonpayment, violation of any agreement with IELT, to prevent injury to or interference with IELT's rights or property, to other IELT users or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. IELT may disclose or access account information when it believes in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that IELT deems necessary to maintain, service and improve it services and to protect its rights or property. By accessing and using the Site, you agree that information you have provided may be disclosed as described above or as may be modified from time to time.
