We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy regularly for any changes that might occur. We reserve the right at any time in our sole discretion to revise or update this Privacy Policy. As a growing company our desire is to ensure continuous protection. If a significant change is made, Tech Elevator will ensure updates are made and posted publicly online and in the school catalog.  Please read this Privacy Policy carefully.

Information Collected & Usage

The types of personal information we collect may include:

  • Contact Information
    Such as email address, postal address, billing address and phone number, is collected to make contact with students regarding inquiries and enrollment.

  • Identity Information

  • Demographic Information
    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.

  • Performance Data
    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.

Protection of Your Information

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.

Tech Elevator’s Privacy Policy does not apply to third parties with whom you may become involved with during your lifespan at Tech Elevator. Your lifespan at Tech Elevator can be defined at the time of initial engagement through your status as alumni with us.  Our website and services may contain links to other sites that are not owned or operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. We strongly advise you to review the privacy policy of every website you visit in order to know how they collect and use private information. We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party sites or services.

Data Retention

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.
