Students who cancel with less than one week (7 days) notice may move to another available class at the time of notice, or receive a refund MINUS a $20 cancellation fee.

Class Attendance

Class attendance is monitored by the instructor by the use of sign-in sheets in the AM and PM of each class day. Notes are made if a student is late to class (initially, after a break, or lunch) to insure that the 90% attendance requirement is met. On rare occasions and completely within the absolute discretion of the BRIGHTPATH staff and the instructor and based on instructor and meeting space availability as well as other factors, a student who has not met the attendance requirement but very nearly meets the requirement, may be offered the opportunity to pay an additional fee to make up time missed so that the 90% attendance requirement may be met.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. – See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

We will notify you via email

• Within 7 business days

We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
