Privacy Policy

How We Respect Your Privacy

Engineering Professional Development is committed to respecting your right to privacy. Our policy is clear: we collect no information about you, other than information automatically collected and stored (see below), when you visit our Web site unless you choose to provide that information to us.

Information Automatically Collected

When you browse through any website, certain information is collected in relation to your computer’s IP address but does not personally or directly identify you. We automatically collect and temporarily store the following information about visits from IP addresses:

  • the date and time of visit;
  • the pages or content visited; and
  • the address of the Web site from which you came.

We may use this information for statistical purposes and to help us make our site more useful to visitors. We also use it to show you more relevant advertisements (otherwise known as “retargeting”) through cookies.

We have some websites that use Oracle Eloqua to help us recruit learners through some marketing campaigns. The Eloqua tracking cookie is offered by a range of University websites, which enables the University to measure website usage across the University. In addition to anonymous tracking, and only if you choose to directly submit your personal information on certain University web forms, we will then also track your use of University websites in combination with personal information that you have shared with the University via other sources. This combination of information will be shared only with appropriate, authorized University staff.


Cookies can save your settings on specific websites to track how you get there. Google uses these for remarketing and Google Analytics to track ads. Cookies are also used to serve up interest-based advertising, which means you may see online ads based on your browser history. You can choose to clear the cache and cookies saved for your Internet browser, or opt out of interest-based advertising here.

No additional information is collected unless we state otherwise.
