The types of personal information we collect may include:
Such as email address, postal address, billing address and phone number, is collected to make contact with students regarding inquiries and enrollment.
Such as first name, last name, social security number and date of birth is collected to identify students. Identifying Information can be utilized to surpass Admissions and Reporting Requirements, and to maintain internal records as a means of compliance with our state governing bodies.
Such as gender, race, ethnicity and sexual orientation is collected as a benchmark to determine if Tech Elevator’s goal of increasing diversity in our student body is actually occurring. Access to this information is limited to certain parties for internal auditing purposes only to limit the possibility of bias.
Such as employment and education information are collected for use in showing trends in historical data as well as for use in our Nationally Recognized Pathway Program to set expectations for a student’s job search.
Such as completion rate, placement rate and drop rate are collected to provide data to local and state bodies as proof of performance standards that govern Tech Elevator's right to service students, and students' ability to receive government funding through Tech Elevator.

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect personal information that we collect against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.
We limit access to any social security numbers to members of our Compliance team only, and social security numbers are protected in transit and at rest through encryption and a secure connection.
Despite such efforts, however, please note that no organization can fully eliminate risks or guarantee the security of personal information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of information about you at any time, and we bear no liability for uses or disclosures of personal information or other data arising in connection with theft of the information or other malicious actions.
We retain personal information for as long as is necessary for the processing purpose(s) for which the data was collected, and any other permissible, related purpose. Our retention periods for social security numbers are based on our needs and legal requirements. When we no longer need social security numbers we collect, we securely destroy the information, unless required by applicable law to retain the information for a specific retention period.
