Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Georgia ETA collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Georgia ETA’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Georgia ETA’s visitors use its website.

Georgia ETA also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for registration of courses. Georgia ETA only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Georgia ETA’s websites choose to interact with Georgia ETA in ways that require Georgia ETA to gather personally-identifying information. The information requested is the minimum amount required to provide proof of registration of Georgia ETA courses. Those who engage in transactions with Georgia ETA are asked to provide personal and financial information required to process those transactions for registration. In each case, Georgia ETA collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Georgia ETA. Georgia ETA does not disclose personally-identifying information. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Georgia ETA discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Georgia ETA’s behalf and these parties have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Georgia ETA’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Georgia ETA will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Georgia ETA discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Georgia ETA believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Georgia ETA, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Georgia ETA website and have supplied your email address, Georgia ETA may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Georgia ETA and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Georgia ETA takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
