We take the privacy of our users very seriously. This privacy statement details the types of information we collect and how we use it.
The primary reason we collect personal information is to provide quality content and services. Several services and products we offer require you to provide us with information as a condition for receiving said services and/or products.
We collect personally identifiable information such as your name, email address, postal address, phone number, and credit card information when required. We may at times on forms such as an admissions application collect other sensitive information such as your gender, social security number, and/or parental information.
Emmaus.edu uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol to encrypt the transfer of confidential information obtained by forms on this site. These forms can be identified by the address starting with “https:” instead of “http:”.
