1) Upon placing an order and becoming an American Schools student, American Schools collects from the student information as to identity, location and means of contact like phone, fax numbers and e-mail. If applicable, also numbers or ID codes pertinent to the studentís identification as a professional licensed or about to be licensed by a State agency. This information is used only for obtaining payment from the student (through a card authorization service) to properly register the student and, where applicable, to communicate to a State agency completion of the course by the student. All secure information, like credit card data is kept securely in hard copy in the school main office for the limited use and time necessary to complete the transaction. Such is never transmitted anywhere by unsecured, unencrypted e-mail.
2) No other third parties have access to this information (like the studentís employer or spouse) as the school insist on communicating directly with the registered students. The school has never sold or used mailing lists for unsolicited mailings regarding unrelated products or calls, etc.
3) American Schools advertises conspicuously in all materials, at all times, its physical office address, its phone, fax numbers and e-mail address. All contacts initiated by students or the public, if not answered immediately, are replied to, if urgent, within 24 hours. Non-urgent e-mail messages are responded to within a maximum period of 3 business days.
4) American Schools has been offering private postsecondary education for over 35 years. All State agencies responsible for course or school operation approvals, are so named and referred to in connection with the presentation of the different courses or in the refund policy statement.
