Website Privacy Statement
Southeast Tech does not collect or require visitors to its website to furnish personally identifying information unless visitors opt to complete our forms or to use our e-commerce platforms (purchases and donations). “Personal information” includes information that is unique to you and may include your name, phone number, address and email address. If you encounter a screen or page that requests information you do not want to share with us, do not enter the information and do not proceed with that screen or page. If you do provide us with personal information, we will only use it for the purposes described where it is collected (e.g., Request Information Form, Admissions Application, registering and paying to take a test at our Testing Center, donating online to our Foundation, etc.). Like most website operators, Southeast Tech does collect non-personally identifying information that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, operating system, language preference, referring site and date and time of each visitor request. Southeast Tech also collects potentially-personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. These are non-personally identifying in and of themselves but could be used in conjunction with other information to personally identify users.

When you visit a page or read an email with a pixel tag, web beacon or other similar technology, a generic notice of your interaction is generated.
Opting Out of Cookies, Web Beacons and Similar Technologies
You can manage cookie preferences and opt out of having cookies and other similar collection technologies used by adjusting the settings on your web browser. If you do not want cookies stored on your computer, you can change the settings on your browser to notify you when a cookie is about to be saved or block cookies entirely. How to access these settings, which settings are available and how to turn on these settings varies by browser type, and we encourage you to further investigate your browser’s privacy settings if you wish to opt out or adjust these settings in any way. If you choose to decline or block cookies, you may not be able to fully utilize all the interactive features of the website.
You cannot decline web beacons; however, setting your browser to decline cookies or to prompt you for a response or installing an ad-blocker, may keep web beacons from tracking your activity.
