The Georgia School of Addiction Studies has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website: www.thegeorgiaschool.com.
Our site's contact form requires users to give us contact information (like their name and email address) and demographic information (like their zip code). We use customer contact information from the contact form to send the user information about our company. The customer's contact information is also used to contact the visitor if additional information is required for The Georgia School of Addiction Studies to understand the user's needs. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below. Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. We use this data to tailor the visitor's experience at our site, showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences. WE DO NOT share or sell users' information to anyone.
This site contains links to other sites. The Georgia School of Addiction Studies is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites. This site is made available by a third party Internet Service Provider (ISP) which is the collector and storer of user information and our non- disclosure agreement. The ISP, by nature of the services provided, has access to user information. However, as a matter of policy, the ISP does not screen or review user information on this site. If a user visits any of the co-branded pages of this site and subsequently executes a financial transaction or submits additional information the affiliate is collecting their information and sharing it in the aggregate with The Georgia School of Addiction Studies. We recommend users read the privacy statements of all co-branded pages.

We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive tied to personal information about the user. Usage of a cookie is linked to personally identifiable information while on our site.

If a user rejects the cookie, you may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
