Privacy Policy

Here at MastersDegree.com, we strive to provide you with the information and guidance you need to make the best decision possible with regards to earning an advanced degree.

In order to do so, we may require you to share personal information. Please read on to learn more about exactly what we ask for, why we ask for information at all, and, finally, how we use that information.

What information does MastersDegree.com collect?

When we do attempt to collect information from you, this is what we will ask for:

    • Your contact information, meaning your address, phone number and email
    • Your gender, current education standing and your academic interests and aspirations
    • Information about your computer, including your IP address, browser, OS, and the sources and sites that brought you to us

 

Why does MastersDegree.com require my personal information?

We collect your personal information in order to better understand and serve your needs. With the information we request, we are able to direct you to a number of graduate programs that suit your needs.

We never ask for sensitive information, such as credit card or social security numbers, but you may be asked to provide general demographic information as you browse our site. Name, gender, education level, geographical location, and area of study may be collected to allow us to provide customized search results that are most relevant to you.

We also track operating systems, IP addresses, and the pages you visit in order to monitor our traffic. This information allows us to determine which topics our users find most relevant. When we know which resources you turn to the most, we are able to give you more of what you want.

Will you share my personal information?

While many sites, as a rule, sell user information to third parties for financial gain, we do no such thing. Instead, by providing us with your information, you permit us to reach out to you when conducting our own marketing campaigns; you also permit us to use the information you have given to inform how we plan improvements to our site and services. Employees of MastersDegree.com are the only people who will contact you based on this information.

There may be a time, however, when we are made to share your information; these instances will be out of our control. The very rare cases where we would share your information include:

      • A mandate to do so by the government or law
      • A security breach on our site that puts our employees and users at risk
      • An event in which our site is sold to, acquired by, or merged with another company

If any of the above should occur, we will notify you.

How will you contact me?

As previously mentioned, you will only ever be contacted by an employee of either our site. Using the information you provided us, we will either contact you via phone, email, or physical mail. Please note that “Do Not Call” lists, even federally mandated ones, do not apply to our site once you have willingly given us your information. Once you have freely given your contact information, we may use it for outreach purposes.

How do I contact MastersDegree.com?

If you would like further information on our privacy policy, the type of information we collect and why, or any of the topics found on our site, please visit our “Contact Us” page to learn how to best reach us.
