Like most website operators, World University LLC 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. World University LLC’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how World University LLC’s visitors use its website. From time to time, World University LLC may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
World University LLC also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on world.edu. World University LLC only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to World University LLC’s websites choose to interact with World University LLC in ways that require World University LLC to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that World University LLC gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
World University LLC 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 World University LLC’s behalf or to provide services available at World University LLC’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

If you are a registered user of an World University LLC website and have supplied your email address, World University LLC 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 World University LLC and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. 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. World University LLC takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
