The Information We Gather

Gateway Technology Center gathers two types of information about users:

  1. Non-personally Identifiable Information: When visitors come to our web site, we collect and aggregate information indicating, among other things, which pages of the web site were visited, the order in which they were visited and which hyperlinks were “clicked.” Collecting such information involves the logging of the IP addresses, operating system and browser software used by each visitor to the Gateway Technology Center web site. Although such information is not personally identifiable, we can determine from an IP address a visitor’s Internet Service Provider (ISP) and the geographic location of his or her point of connectivity.

    We may also use a technology called "cookies" to help improve the contents of the site. A cookie is a small data file transferred by a web site to your computer's hard drive. The cookies used on our web site do not allow access to users' personal information, but the cookies may be used to identify individual computers. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings of your Web browser.
  2. Personally Identifiable Information: In certain areas of the Gateway Technology Center web site – for example, when registering to receive product updates – we require that you provide us with personally identifiable information (including, for example, first name, surname, organization, email address, telephone, topics of interest and other information).

How We Use (And Do Not Use) The Information We Gather

Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the different ways Gateway Technology Center uses the information that it gathers. Keep in mind that, while Gateway Technology Center encourages all third parties involved – including but not limited to its educational and other partners – to adhere to our policies regarding the privacy of our registered and unregistered visitors to otherwise handle personal information in a responsible manner, we cannot and do not assume any responsibility for any actions or omissions of third parties, including the manner in which they use information received either from Gateway Technology Center or independently. Nevertheless, in the event that you encounter any third party associated with, or who claims association with, Gateway Technology Center who you feel is improperly collecting or using information about you, please contact; we will be happy to forward your message to the third party.

  1. Non-personally Identifiable Information: Gateway Technology Center uses non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form to measure demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the Gateway Technology Center web site. We may provide statistical information based on this data to other current and potential partners.

    The Gateway Technology Center web site contains links to other Internet web sites, including other sites which may or may not be owned or operated by Gateway Technology Center. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites, including such sites’ use of any information (such as IP address, browser type or operating system) collected when visitors to the Gateway Technology Center web site click through links to those sites. Even though such information might not identify you personally, we strongly encourage you to become familiar with the privacy practices of those sites.
  2. Personally Identifiable Information: Gateway Technology Center provides notice to potential Gateway Technology Center registrants that personally identifiable information will be collected during the registration process. Such notice is provided simultaneously with your Gateway Technology Center registration; moreover, this Privacy Policy itself serves as notice that such information is collected under those circumstances. Although you may not “opt out” of the registration process if you wish to register, you may choose to “opt out” of receiving other materials from Gateway Technology Center and/or its affiliates or partners.

Gateway Technology Center limits its own e-mail solicitations to those potential students and partners who have not “opted out” of receiving such communications. The solicitations are limited in that they, among other things, will clearly indicate the originator of the e-mail and provide the recipient with a method of “opting out” of receiving future communications of a similar nature.

Changing or Deleting Personal Information; Business Transfers

If you would like to have your personally identifiable information removed from the Gateway Technology Center database, please contact us at, and we will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request. Keep in mind, however, that there will be residual information that will remain within Gateway Technology Center databases, access logs and other records, which may or may not contain such personally identifiable information. The residual information will not be used for commercial purposes; however, Gateway Technology Center reserves the right, from time to time, to recontact former users of Gateway Technology Center.

Commercial email policy

In addition, Gateway Technology Center neither authorizes nor condones the harvesting of email addresses from this or any other site.
