When you visit our Web site, our server automatically recognizes only the Internet domain and IP address from which you accessed our site. This information does not result in the identification of your personal e-mail address or other personal information.

In addition, we monitor the volume and timing of access to our site by collecting information on the date, time and pages accessed by visitors. We do this so that we can improve the content of our Web site, and this information is not shared with other organizations. Again, only aggregate information is collected, and individual visitors' personal information is not identified.

If you choose to share personal information with us - by sending us a message or filling out an electronic form with personal information - we will use the information only for the purposes you authorized.

Students our server maintains a record of all usernames logged into one of our courses. This monitoring is designed to assist us in improving our courses. We may report your onsite activity to an individual or school for their records. We may use this information in internal research. US-Reports will not in any way release your personal information to third parties or government agencies.

REFUND POLICY

USR actively seeks to create learning environments that fully foster the success of those that use our instructional materials. Barriers to learning are by design eliminated from our course offerings. One known barrier to learning is the operation of refund policies and guarantees. Both are often seen by students as exit strategies that may be exercised in lieu of completing a course. Thus, the possibility of a refund can and often does reduce student drive and their level of effort to successfully complete a course. USR’s basic refund policy is thus - no refund.
