Effective Date April 5th, 2021
We refer to a Huntington Learning Center® business as a “Center”. Centers are owned and operated by independent businesses (which we call “Franchisees”). When you enroll your student at a Center, Center staff will collect certain information about your student, as described below and share it with us. This Policy applies only to information collected by Centers wholly owned by us and to information Franchisees share with us. It does not apply to any other information our Franchisees may collect.
We collect information about you directly from you and from third parties, as well as automatically through your use of our Services.
Information We Collect Directly from You
When you inquire about our Services we may collect your name, phone number, address, ZIP Code, and email.
As part of the intake process we will collect additional information from the student’s parents (or guardians) about the student, including name, age, gender, birth date, health history, educational history, presence of any learning difficulties, names of parents and siblings, parents’ contact information, and emergency contact information. In addition, we also collect information about the student’s parents (or guardians), including marital status, contact information, and occupation.
Information regarding any student who is a minor must only be provided by the student’s parent or legal guardian.
If you pay fees or tuition at a Center, its staff may collect credit card information.
When you apply to own a franchise we also collect birth date, marital status, citizenship, education background, employment and compensation history, military experience, financial information including assets and liabilities, and bankruptcy history.
Information We Collect Automatically
We may collect the following information automatically about you and your use of our Sites through cookies, web beacons, and other current and future technologies: your domain name; your browser type and operating system; web pages you view; links you click; your IP address; the length of time you visit our Sites; and the referring URL, or the webpage that led you to our Sites, and the following: access time, browser type, device ID, domain name, IP address, page views and referring URL. We may combine this information with other information that we have collected or will collect, about you, including, where applicable, your name, email address, and other personal information. Please see the section “Cookies and Other Tracking Mechanisms” below for more information.
Third Parties or Publicly Available Sources
We may receive information about you from third parties and public sources such as:
We may use your information to:
We may share your information, including your personal information, as follows:
Cookies. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your device through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our Sites, while others allow us to track your activities at our Sites. There are two types of cookies: session and persistent cookies.
Disabling cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Visitors to our Sites who disable cookies will be able to browse certain areas of the Sites, but some features may not function.
Do Not Track. Our systems do not recognize and we do not respond to “do-not-track” requests. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed in this section (e.g., by disabling cookies); you also may opt-out of targeted advertising by following the instructions in the Third-Party Links section.
We may also implement additional add-on services to Google Analytics, such as:
Interest-based Advertising. We use third parties and/or service providers for interest-based or targeted advertising services. These services may serve advertisements on our behalf that are customized based on predictions about your interests generated from your visits to websites (including our websites) over time and across different websites. The data collected may be associated with your personal information. These advertisements may appear on our websites and onother websites, and may be sent to you via email.
To change your preferences with respect to certain online ads or to obtain more information about ad networks and online behavioral advertising, visit National Advertising Initiative Consumer opt-out page or the Digital Advertising Alliance Self-Regulatory Program. Changing your settings with individual browsers or ad networks will not necessarily carry over to other browsers or ad networks. As a result, depending on the opt-outs you request, you may still see our ads. Opting-out of targeted advertising does not opt you out of all ads, just those targeted to you.
We have implemented commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Please be aware that despite these efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security.
Our Sites are not directed at children under 13. We do not knowingly collect, use, or share personal information from children under 13 without appropriate parental consent. If a parent or legal guardian learns that their child provided us with personal information without his or her consent, please contact us and we will make commercially reasonable attempts to delete such personal information.

How to Exercise Your Rights. To exercise your rights described in this Policy, you may submit your request to us by contacting us at any of the following:
Who May Exercise Your Rights. You may make a request to exercise the above rights on behalf of yourself or on behalf of a child, if you are a parent or legal guardian of the child. In addition, you may authorize an agent to exercise your rights on your behalf, if you provide the agent with written permission and if the agent is a business entity, provided the agent is registered with the California Secretary of State. If an authorized agent contacts us to exercise the above rights, we will need to verify their identity as well as your identity. We will also require proof of your written authorization to the agent to be your agent and to make the specific request submitted unless the agent is subject to a Power of Attorney under California probate laws. If the agent is a Power of Attorney under California probate laws, we may require evidence of that status.
Verification of Your Request. Once we receive your request, we will contact you to confirm receipt of your request. In addition, we may contact you to provide us with additional information to allow us to verify your identity based on the Personal Information we have in our systems. In order to verify your request, you must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person that is the subject of the Personal Information you have requested. This information may vary depending on the Personal Information we already have. Certain types of requests may require additional verification to ensure you are who you say you are. If you have used an agent to make your request, we will also need to verify the identity of the agent. Verification of your request may require you, or your agent if applicable, to sign a declaration verifying identity under penalty of perjury. We may deny your request as permitted by law, if we are unable to verify your identity, or if an agent makes the request on your behalf, if we are unable to verify their identity or proof of their authorization.
When We Will Respond. We will respond to a request to opt-out of the sales of data within 15 business days. For all other requests, we will confirm receipt of your request within 10 business days and we will try to respond to your request within 45 calendar days. If we require additional time to respond, we will inform you of the reason and may take an additional 45 calendar days to respond. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request. We may charge a fee to process or respond to your request, if it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.

If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to us at the address provided below.
This Policy is current as of the Effective Date set forth above. We may change this Policy at any time and from time to time, so please be sure to check back periodically. We will post any changes to this Policy on our Sites.
