Privacy policy

This is the privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") for Kaplan Publishing, part of the Kaplan family of educational companies.
This Privacy Policy describes how we treat personal data received about you when you visit the Kaplan Publishing website or otherwise. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully, because by visiting or using this site or contracting with us, you agree to its terms. This Privacy Policy applies only to the site, and not to the web sites of other Kaplan companies.

We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify you of any important changes by posting a notice on all Privacy Policy links. If you see a notice of change, please check the Privacy Policy, because your continued use of the site after we post the change means you have agreed to the new terms.

Collection of your personal data

We collect your personal data when you ask for information about our courses or study materials, when you submit your answers to our assessment quizzes or surveys, or when you enrol or are enrolled by your employer in one of our courses or eLearning products.

To process your enquiries and assessment quizzes or surveys, we collect your name, email and postal addresses, daytime phone number, and, if applicable, company and type of business.

To process enrolments and orders, we ask for your name, email and postal addresses, daytime phone number, company name and address, training manager's name, mobile and home telephone numbers, date of birth, professional certification or registration information, if any, and credit or debit card information if applicable.

We and other Kaplan companies may also use your postal and email addresses to send you information about further professional training, and other services or products similar to those you have ordered from us, or to send you an invitation to solicit such information from our sibling Kaplan educational companies. If you do not wish us to send you this additional information, you can let us know by following the opt-out instructions that we include in every email, or by sending us notice of your preferences through the mechanisms listed in the section below entitled Your Ability to Choose.

Sharing your data

We will need to use your data to perform our obligations and exercise our rights under agreements made with you and to inform you of feedback and exam results.
If you have enrolled in our courses through your employer, we will share your data and course attendance and test results with your employer.

If you enrol in our eLearning products, we will share the login and password that we assigned to you with Dearborn Financial Services, another Kaplan educational company and our partner in delivering eLearning solutions to our customers.

These other companies may be supplied with or have access to your personal data solely for the purpose of providing these services to us or on our behalf. Kaplan is the data controller and will remain accountable for the personal information.
  • Kaplan Affiliates. We also may share your data with other business divisions and subsidiaries of Kaplan, Inc. (our "Affiliated Businesses") that provide services we think might interest you.
