Privacy Policy

This policy is constructed to describe how Miami Tech Works (MTW) collects, uses, protects or otherwise handles the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of individuals who visit the MTW’s website.

Personally Identifiable Information, as described in U.S. privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context.

The Privacy Policy provides visitors to MTW’s Website with the following information.

What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our website or app?

When applying for admissions or registering for classes on our site, as appropriate, the user may be asked to enter name, email address, mailing address, phone number, credit card information, social security number or other details to help with their experience.

When do we collect information?

We collect information from the user when the user registers for classes, applies for admissions, subscribe to a newsletter, responds to a survey, fills out a request for information or contact form, uses live chat, opens a support ticket or enter information on our site.

How do we use the user information?

We may use the information we collect from the user in the following ways:

  • To personalize their experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product offerings in which the user is most interested.
  • To improve our website in order to better serve the user.
  • To allow us to better serve the user in responding to customer service requests.
  • To quickly process the user transactions.
  • To send periodic emails regarding the user’s classes or other services.
  • To follow up with the user after correspondence (live chat, email or phone inquiries).

How do we protect the user’s information?

The user’s personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information the user supplies encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

We implement a variety of security measures when a user conducts a transaction, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of the user personal information.

All transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.

Do we use ‘cookies’?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers the user ‘s computer’s hard drive through their Web browser (if the user allows) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize the user’s browser and capture and remember certain information. They are used to help us understand the user’s preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide the user with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We use cookies to:

  • Understand and save user’s preferences for future visits.
  • Keep track of advertisements.
  • Compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions in order to offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may also use trusted third party services that track this information on our behalf.
  • Serve ads on third-party sites based on previous visits to our site.

Users may choose to have their computer warn them each time a cookie is being sent, or the user may choose to turn off all cookies. The user does this through their browser settings. Since all browsers are a little different, the user should explore their browser’s help menu to learn the correct way to modify cookie settings.

If the user turns cookies off, some features will be disabled. Some of these features make the user site experience more efficient and may affect the functionality of the site.

Third-party disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties a user’s personally identifiable information unless we provide the user with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing the user, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release the user’s information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.

However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Third-party links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on our website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.


Google’s advertising requirements can be summed up by Google’s Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users. We use Google AdSense Advertising on our website.

Google, as a third-party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on our site. Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to our users based on previous visits to our site and other sites on the Internet. Users may opt-out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google Ad and Content Network privacy policy.

We have implemented the following:

  • Remarketing with Google AdSense
  • Google Display Network Impression Reporting
  • Demographics and Interests Reporting

We, along with third-party vendors such as Google use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions and other ad service functions as they relate to our website.

Opting out

Users may set preferences for how Google advertises to the individual using the Google Ad Settings page. Alternatively, the user may opt out by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative Opt Out page or by using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add-on.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. – See more at:
