We also collect information from or about you in other ways, such as through contact with our Admissions Team, and from interactions.

We do not consider Personal Information to include information that is anonymous or that we have made anonymous so that it cannot be used to identify an individual customer and does not contain other information that would allow us or others to identify you (“Anonymous Information”).

How do we share your information?

We may share your Personal Information with:

Our agreements specify that these service providers only use your Personal Information in connection with the services they provide to us and not for their own benefit.
  • Credit bureaus and collection agencies to report account information, as permitted by law when necessary.
  • Companies that we plan to merge with or be acquired by. (Should such a combination occur, we will require that the new combined entity follow this privacy policy with respect to your Personal Information. If your Personal Information could be used contrary to this policy, you will receive prior notice.)
  • Law enforcement, government officials, or other third parties pursuant to a subpoena, court order, or other legal process; when we need to do so to comply with law or credit card rules; or when we believe, in our sole discretion, that the disclosure of Personal Information is necessary to prevent physical harm or financial loss, to report suspected illegal activity or to investigate violations of our contract.
  • Other third parties with your consent or direction to do so.
  • Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology (Bel-Rea) will not sell or rent any of your Personal Information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your consent and only shares your Personal Information with third parties as described in this policy.

How do we use cookies, web beacons, and tracking technologies?

When you access our Site, we (including companies we work with) may place small data files on your computer or other device. These data files may be cookies, pixel tags, or other local storage provided by your browser or associated applications (“Cookies”). We use these technologies to recognize you as a prospective student when visiting our site; customize content and advertising; measure promotional effectiveness; help ensure that your account security is not compromised; and to mitigate risk and prevent fraud.

We use both session and persistent Cookies. Session Cookies expire and no longer have any effect when you log out of your account or close your browser. Persistent Cookies remain on your device until you erase them, or they expire.

We encode our Cookies so that we can interpret the information stored in them. You may encounter our Cookies on Sites that we do not control. For example, if you view a web page created by a third party or use an application developed by a third party, there may be a Cookie placed by the web page or application. Likewise, these third parties may place their own Cookies that are not subject to our control and the Bel-Rea Privacy Policy does not cover their use.

How do we protect your information?

The security of your Personal Information is very important to us. We strive to follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on the Site, you can email us at sloan@belrea.edu. While we cannot guarantee privacy perfection, we will address any issue to the best of our abilities as soon as possible.

How can you control what information is collected and used? You can control how the various types of information discussed above are captured, even blocking its collection in several ways:

  • You are free to decline our Cookies if your browser or browser add-on permits, doing so may interfere with your use of our Site including not being able to request information, schedule a call, or apply for admission to the program. Refer to the help section of your browser, browser extensions, or installed applications for instructions on blocking, deleting, or disabling Cookies.
