The Information We Collect
If you choose to register for a course via our on-line or conventional registration application, the types of personally identifiable information that may be collected include: name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, and all the other highly personal information that is called for on the application form and on the course registration form. Your personal information contained in your course application and registration forms are stored in a secure manner within our facilities and the only persons having access thereto are those who have a specific "need to know", such as the course registrar, the center/course manager and the assistant teacher(s) conducting the course(s) to which you seek admission.
How We Use Your Information
We use the information you provide about yourself in your application and registration forms to evaluate your application for admission to an event (event is a class, retreat or for a session) and to register you the event chosen. In addition, we have found that people who attend a Creation Center event frequently attend subsequent events over their lifetime. In order to facilitate subsequent attendance at events and to maintain a record of a student’s history and experience we may maintain the course data of each student indefinitely in the absence of a legal prohibition to do so in certain jurisdictions. In some cases we may use your name postal address and/or email address to send you information about Creation Center related activities and facilities, if you have not opted-out of such contact. We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to understand who is accessing our site from which locations and which files they are accessing within the site, i.e., to use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage. This Creation Center Website does not ever make your personally identifiable information available to third parties, for commercial or any other reason, except when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or subpoena. We may also disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's request or other legal requirement.
Our application forms and the personal data contained therein are handled by storage and processing on computers. Your submission of an application form to attend one of our events constitutes your unequivocal consent to the storage and processing of your application data on a computer and to the cross-border transfer of your personal information contained in the application form as well as the handling and storage of all information you submit to us in the registration process in accordance with the privacy regulations of the local jurisdiction. For the welfare of the students, it may be necessary for us to take and retain notes on any health concern or behavior that otherwise indicates that a student should be restricted from attending future events or will need additional support during a future event. In the rare case of this occurring, these notes will be entered on a computer and shared in confidence with assistant teachers and authorized course registrars involved in future events. Your attendance at an event will constitute unequivocal consent to the handling and storage of such notes and the cross-border transfer thereof.
