Accord LMS encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from Accord LMS so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information.

Use of Cookies

The Accord LMS Web site use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Accord LMS pages, or register with Accord LMS site or services, a cookie helps Accord LMS to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Accord LMS Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Accord LMS features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Accord LMS services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

Accord LMS secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Accord LMS secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

Accord LMS will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Accord LMS encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Accord LMS is protecting your information.
