In accordance with the privacy legislation introduced on December 21, 2001, this privacy policy outlines the information collection practices utilised by APS Institute, how that information is used and the choices you can make about the way the information you provide to us is collected and used.

The way the information is collected

When you make an on-line course enrolment or enquiry via APS Institute web site, we need to collect information about you for registration purposes. This information includes, but is not limited to, details such as your name, your contact details (email, phone, fax) and your qualifications. When you submit a request via our email enquiry forms, we also collect your name and email so that we may respond to your request or query as quickly as possible.

How we use the information

When you submit an on-line enrolment form, we use the collected information in several ways:

  • Personal identification and verification
  • To complete your course enrolment
  • To allow us to contact you for further information, if required

In addition, your email address will be used to send you an email message confirming your enrolment with a student identification number. You will be given a student login name and password to gain access to our student portal via our website under student login

As an APS Institute student, you will receive regular updates from us about employment opportunities, newsletters and any noteworthy changes to our courses. However, you may always unsubscribe from receiving these email messages once you complete your course with APS Institute.

We disclose your information to third parties (such as government agencies or potential employers) only for the purpose of assisting our students to fill suitable employment. We do not sell, rent or trade your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes.

Unless otherwise prohibited by law or our contractual obligations, we may disclose personal information if required to do so by law, court order, or as requested by a governmental or law enforcement authority, or in the good faith belief that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable. Such situations may include: to perform, maintain or enforce contracts with our customers; to protect the rights or properties of APS Institute, our business affiliates, our customers, or others; or when we have reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing, or who may be threatening to cause, interference with or damage to our rights or properties, whether intentionally or otherwise; or when anyone else could be harmed by such activities.

Like most web sites, there is certain information we automatically track, including the URL that you just came from, the browser you are using and your IP address. This data is utilised to improve the services of APS Institute and does not include any personally identifying information.

Our commitment to data security

While being transmitted over the Internet, your credit card details are protected using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption through our merchant partner PayPal. For security and privacy policy of PayPal, please refer to their website. These details are stored securely at all times, are not used for any other purpose and will never be provided to any unauthorised third parties.
