Your voluntary submission of this information enables us (and our affiliates) to contact you (via phone, text message, email, or mail) regarding education-related topics. MastersInPublicAdministration.net will only exercise this right in accordance with any and all relevant laws. You can find additional information on our ability to contact you and related topics below.

Automatic information includes anonymous data we receive automatically when you interact with MastersInPublicAdministration.net. This is the typical protocol with most websites. Our receipt of this data enables us improve user-experience, such as by tailoring content to users’ particular interests. Our use of “cookies” enables us to gather anonymous data for analytics, site optimization and individually-tailored advertising and marketing. This information includes (but is not limited to) your operating system version, your browser version, and your IP address.

When you submit personal information to MastersInPublicAdministration.net, you authorize us and our partners — including schools and third parties — to reach out to you (via telephone, text message, email, or mail) to release marketing or other information for education-related services and products. In using our website, you additionally authorize MastersInPublicAdministration.net, our affiliates, and our vendors and partners to contact you for a limited period. You therefore extinguish any rights you receive under the Do Not Call list and maybe other laws.

By using MastersInPublicAdministration.net and submitting personal information, you enable us to lawfully release your personal information — for example to abide by a subpoena or other legal procedure — or in any other situation where the law requires disclosure. We use this ability only when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to preserve our rights, ensure the safety of you or others, explore alleged fraud, or reply to a government or legal request. We might also release your personal information if MastersInPublicAdministration.net merges with or acquires another company, or sells all or part of its assets to a third party.
