Privacy Policy

Maritime Protective Services, Inc. (MPS) is committed to protecting your privacy. We
collect personally identifiable information only in specific instances, such as registering
for a course, requesting information, or signing up to receive Blog post notices by e-mail.
If you choose to provide such information, that information will not be used for purposes
other than that for which it was collected. MPS will not sell or rent this information to
others or share it in ways other than those disclosed in this statement.

Certain personal information collected from persons attending our courses is maintained
securely in our offices in accordance with government requirements. Within our offices,
access to such personal information is restricted to MPS personnel who need it to perform
specific functions (e.g., course certificate processing). When courses involve the award
of Continuing Education Units, we share certain personal information of course attendees
with Florida Institute of Technology, where it is maintained securely in accordance with
requirements for educational institutions. Additionally, student information may be
made available to government personnel (including government contractor personnel)
in connection with their responsibilities for oversight of maritime training. Finally, we
would make student information available in response to a subpoena from a court of
competent jurisdiction.

Like most web site operators, MPS does collect non-personal information, such as IP
addresses of visitors and data about the usage of pages. This information is used to help
us administer, evaluate, and improve the site, and understand what visitors to our site are
looking for.

practices of such other web sites. This Privacy Statement applies solely to information
collected by this web site.

The foregoing is intended to explain our current Internet privacy practices, but shall not
be construed as a contractual promise. MPS reserves the right to amend its Privacy Policy
