Anonymous Information Collected

Your browser may also send response headers with generic/anonymized information about the type of browser, computer/device, and ISP you are using, and your location by country only.

The privacy policy of each entity that collects this information is linked below, if you would like more info about them.

Google Analytics – so we can determine the type of classes, products, and services you are most interested in and create more of them.

InMotion Hosting – kept in the server logs so the host can identify and stop bad bot attacks.

YouTube – if you view a YouTube embedded video on the site, the IP info is sent to YouTube to record that the video has been viewed, just as it would if you had watched it directly on YouTube.
