This site and all information and materials contained herein are provided "as is" without warranty of any kind. This site may contain hypertext links to other websites completely independent of this site. Wake Tech makes no representation or warranty as to the accuracy, completeness or authenticity of the information contained in any such hypertext link, and any hypertext link to another person or entity shall not in any manner be construed as endorsement by Wake Tech of such person's or entity's website, products or services.

Normal website usage
You can visit Wake Tech's website to access education/training service information or use our online tools (courses, etc.) without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information. The only information we collect and store during normal website usage is the website that referred you to us, the pages you request and the date and time of those requests.

We use this information to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of customer visits. During normal website usage, we do not collect or store personally identifiable information such as name, mailing address, email address, phone number or Social Security number.

Collection of personally identifiable information
There are instances where Wake Tech requests personally identifiable information to provide the website visitor a service or correspondence (e.g., mailed class schedules and brochures). This information, such as name, mailing address, email address, type of request and possibly additional information, is collected and stored in a manner appropriate to the nature of the data by Wake Tech and is used to fulfill your request. The college makes every effort to ensure the secure collection and transmission of sensitive user information using industry-accepted data collection and encryption methodologies, such as SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and PGP (Pretty Good Privacy). The information you provide is used by Wake Tech to improve the services we provide you. It is never provided to any other company for that company's independent use.

Use of cookies
Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual's computer hard drive for record-keeping purposes so that we may track site and user activity. The use of cookies is an industry standard, and you will find them at most major websites. By showing how and when visitors use the site, cookies help Wake Tech better track which areas of our site are popular and those that are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on data such as total number of visitors and pages viewed. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you would prefer, you can set yours to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent. However, it is possible that some parts of the site will not function properly if you do so.

Users outside the United States
Wake Tech is located within the United States, and, as such, all information submitted or collected from users in other countries will be transferred to the United States. If you are a non-U.S. resident, please be advised that laws in the United States may not provide the same level of data protection as your home country. Your acceptance of this privacy policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer, to the fullest extent allowed under the law. In all such instances where your personal information is transferred to the United States, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that appropriate safeguards designed to protect your personal information are implemented.
