What and When is Personal Information Collected?
The only Personal Data we collect through this Site is the Personal Data you volunteer when you use this Site, for example, the information you provide when you request a School Catalog or complete a survey. “Personal Data” means information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, such as name, age and e-mail address.
DTUI does not collect any Personally Identifiable Information from you except when you expressly volunteer the information. This includes when you:
- Register for a seminar, become a Member, purchase or download a DTUI product or service.
- Request information (electronically) about DTUI’s products and services, subscribe to newsletters or enter a promotional contest.
- Use or participate in various services or features made available on the Website (including, for example, and without limitation, blogs and other user communities).
- Use various tools to select DTUI products and services that are suitable for your Website visit.
- Request contact with a DTUI sales representative.
- Provide DTUI with comments, questions or feedback about DTUI products and services or your Website experience.
“Personally Identifiable Information” includes, for example, your name; home or business address; e-mail address; telephone, wireless and/or fax number; short message service or text message address or other wireless device address; instant messaging address; credit card and other payment information; employment information and work experience; demographic information and/or other information that may identify you as an individual or allow online or offline contact with you as an individual.
If you register for a seminar or pay for products and services using a credit card, Personally Identifiable Information (such as your name and shipping address) and financial information (such as your credit card number and expiration date) may be required. This information may be used for billing purposes and to fill orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information may be used to get in touch with you. Personally, Identifiable Information also may be collected when you apply for a position with DTUI or a program sponsored by DTUI. In these cases, Personally Identifiable Information is used only for the purpose of processing and evaluating the application.
The Personally Identifiable Information you give us via the Website and information about your order may be combined with other Personally Identifiable Information (such as demographic information and past purchase history) available from our records and other sources (including, without limitation, our worldwide databases). This information may be used to make our future marketing efforts more efficient and will help us to improve the operations and maintenance of our Website and business.
Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by DTUI. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain the quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the DTUI website.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through DTUI’s public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others.
DTUI encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from DTUI so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. DTUI is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the DTUI website.
How Does DTUI Use My Personal Data?

Maintaining Education Records
DTUI maintains records of those who have registered for online or classroom courses for which a certificate or certification is granted upon completion. No education record, however, may be destroyed if there is an outstanding request or notice of pending request to inspect and review the record. Also, the record of requests for and disclosures of the education record and any explanations that are a part of the record must be maintained for as long as the education record to which it pertains is maintained.
The record custodian shall maintain documentation of requests and disclosures of personally identifiable information from a registrant’s education records. The record shall include, whether requests are granted or not, the name(s) of the person(s) who requested the information; the names of the additional parties to whom the receiving party may disclose the information on behalf of DTUI; and their legitimate interests in the information. Records of requests and disclosures will not be maintained for: (1) requests made by the registrant him/herself; (2) requests for which the registrant has given written consent; (3) requests made by DTUI officials with legitimate educational interests; or (4) requests for directory information.
The record of requests and disclosures may be inspected by the registrant, by DTUI officials responsible for the custody of the records, and by external officials for the purpose of auditing record keeping procedures.
