PRIVACY POLICY
HoneZone Technology Academy website, www.honezone.com, is directed to parents and guardians of our participants. In keeping with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) - the law that protects children's online privacy - and the guidelines of the Children's Advertising Review Unit of the Council of Better Business Bureaus, HoneZone Technology Academy limits the collection of personal information from kids. We screen users who wish to provide personal information in order to prevent users under the age of thirteen from providing such information. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received personally identifying information from a user under the age of thirteen, we will delete such information from our records.

A. PRIVACY POLICY CHANGES
We reserve the right to modify our Privacy Policy at any time. In the event that we make a material modification to our policy, we will change the "Updated" date at the top of this page to reflect the date of the modification.

B. INTERNET PROTECTION
HoneZone Technology Academy makes every reasonable effort to prevent participants from being exposed to inappropriate Web content. HoneZone installs Internet filtering software on HoneZone computers. No software is 100 percent perfect, and some inappropriate content may inadvertently be accessed. HoneZone takes reasonable precautions to guard against inappropriate material from being viewed. If inappropriate content is viewed, the instructor will follow standard protocol. Participants found in violation of our "common sense" Internet policy may be removed from program without receiving a refund. HoneZone is not responsible for any inappropriate content accessed via a student owned device/computer.

C. WE DO NOT SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES
HoneZone does not share email addresses or any other personal information with third parties interested in contacting you or collecting information about you. We do not sell, rent, give or trade personal information we collect from online, phone or paper registrations and or catalog requests.

D. HOW WE STORE YOUR INFORMATION
We store your personal information in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. Your personal information is accessible only by you and select company employees. Employees are bound by duties of confidentiality and have access to select databases, which are further protected by HoneZone password requirements.

E. HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
HoneZOne provides for a user-guided registration process in order to expedite your transactions on our site (through the use of pre-filled forms) and to provide you with better service. In order for you to complete your online registration or conduct other transactions on our site, we will require that you submit certain personal information to HoneZone. We may share pertinent personal information with our relevant employees or university relationships for the limited purpose of enabling them to fulfill your requests (e.g. Program Directors, Instructors and University Liaisons).

G. SECURITY OF CREDIT CARD TRANSACTIONS AND INFORMATION

PayPal provides an extra level of security for your payments. Only the last four digits of your credit card are available to view by HoneZone. PayPal uses the industry's most secure data-encryption technologies and physically secure servers that aren't connected directly to the Internet. We use state-of-the-art Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to safeguard and protect your personal information and transactions over the Internet. Your information, including your credit card information, is encrypted and cannot be read as it travels over the Internet.
