Data License

This page lays out all of our legal and privacy information for use of CertificationGuide.com. We have chosen to explain our legal and privacy information in plain English whenever possible. As part of our research program, we read hundreds of legal and privacy disclosures on certification-related websites - and had to drank gallons of coffee. Despite the funny faces our attorneys made when they reviewed this disclosure, we have chosen to attempt using plain English whenever possible. For those of you looking for legalize, our lawyers have included it at the bottom of this page.

Collection of Personal Information

As a visitor to CertificationGuide.com, you use this site without providing any personal information. While using this site, we collect technical and routing information about your computer. We may log this information or use it to modify the site functionality. We also use this information to track site usage. We do not match such information with any of your personal information.

CertificationGuide.com contains links to other sites at which personal information is collected. We have no control over the personal information collected by those sites. We encourage you to review each site's privacy policy (or lack) before disclosing personal information.

Use of Cookies on our site

We currently do not use cookies generated from our own domain, and collect no information based on cookies. Disabling cookies will have no effect on your ability to use our site. However, we do utilize third-party advertising networks that use cookies. These are used for the following purposes: to serve advertisements on our site and track whether these advertisements are clicked on by users; to control how often you are shown a particular advertisement; to tailor content to your preferences; and to count the number of anonymous users of our site.

Third Party Trademarks, Service Marks, Copyrights

Many certification programs documented on this site have identified certification-related material as a trademark, service mark, or copyright. We respect all marks indicating intellectual property and have made every attempt at indicating intellectual property notices. We do this by using HTML entities for trademarks and copyrights, and HTML code for service marks. We take no responsibility for devices unable to display HTML entities. We have made every attempt to indicate claims to trademark and service mark ownership. Let us know if we missed something. We will, upon request, provide a link to your trademark use policy. If a program has infringed upon your trademark or service mark ownership, please take it up with the infringing party. We believe all trademark and service mark usage on this site falls under "fair use." Please communicate any perceiving violation in writing to our corporate address.

We offer targeted advertising based upon search criteria. We do not sell or provide access to search queries for the purposes of advertising; all advertising is tied to occupational codes. Therefore, no advertising is tied to a trademarked term.

Linking Policy

Links to us: Thanks! Link to us as you see fit; we do not require notification. However, our site is tied to a database and links may change. We will attempt to redirect appropriately but cannot guarantee link coherence. If you have a number of links to our site, let us know and we will be happy to send you link updates in RDF format whenever we make major modifications to the web site.

Links to others: When a robots.txt or meta tag set conflicts with the links policy of any site, Procertis follows the robots.txt or meta tag set instructions. We believe strongly that all certification programs are inherently making public statements concerning those that they certify. Therefore, we have a responsibility to link to those sites - and areas of those sites that discuss, disclose, or otherwise promote a certification program. While we reserve the right to link as we see fit to inform the public concerning a certification program, we will consider written requests to our corporate address for alternative links from any program we review.

Program Review Policy

Certification makes a public statement concerning those individuals holding certification. We are free to comment, review, and discuss the content of any certification program. This includes, but is not limited to testing methodology, competency assessments, program design, and the underlying assumptions any program is based on. Inclusion of a program is in our sole discretion. Procertis accepts no fees, advertising, pay-for-placement, or other compensation from any organization directly responsible for certifying individuals. Please notify us of any suggested content revision.
