Transferring personal data to the U.S.
Success CE has its headquarters in the United States. Information we collect about you will be processed in the United States. By using Success CE’s services, you acknowledge that your personal information will be processed in the United States. The United States has not sought nor received a finding of “adequacy” from the European Union under Article 45 of the GDPR. Pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR, Success CE is providing for appropriate safeguards by entering binding, standard data protection clauses, enforceable by data subjects in the EEA and the UK. These clauses have been enhanced based on the guidance of the European Data Protection Board and will be updated when the new draft model clauses are approved.
Depending on the circumstance, Success CE also collects and transfers to the U.S. personal data with consent; to perform a contract with you; or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest of Success CE in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms. Success CE endeavors to apply suitable safeguards to protect the privacy and security of your personal data and to use it only consistent with your relationship with Success CE and the practices described in this Privacy Statement. Success CE also enters into data processing agreements and model clauses with its vendors whenever feasible and appropriate. Since it was founded, Success CE has received zero government requests for information.

Note that we only collect information about you when you voluntarily provide that information through an application or registration, by visiting the Website request form, or some other Website activity that we may provide from time to time. The capture of your domain name is a common practice among websites for measuring the number of hits, pages visited, and length of user session. We use this information to measure the effectiveness of the Website offerings in order to service you better.
Sharing of Information
In order for us to service your requests, process your applications and conduct business from day-to-day, we must occasionally share your Personal Information with other companies. These companies may include, but are not limited to, state departments of Insurance, regulatory and designation granting authorities, as well as affiliated Continuing Education providers. We reserve the right to share this Personal Information in accordance with the terms of HIPAA, the GLB Act, for California State residents only, the CFPA and, for Vermont State residents only, the VFCRA.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the non-public personal financial information of Vermont State residents shall not be shared by Success Continuing Education (SCE) with non-affiliated third-parties unless: (a) Success Continuing Education (SCE) has obtained authorization from the applicable Vermont resident; provided, however, that such authorization must be in written form, or where the applicable Vermont resident agrees, electronic form; (b) the disclosure is made to third-parties for the sole purpose of processing transactions or other related processes on behalf of Success Continuing Education (SCE); and/or (c) the disclosure is made to third-parties that market Success Continuing Education (SCE)’s own products and services to its customers.

Please keep in mind, though, that Success Continuing Education (SCE) does not control, and is not responsible for, the practices of our third-party advertisers. Your contact information is also used to reach you, when necessary, regarding issues concerning your use of the Website.

You also agree that by submitting your e-mail address at the Website, you may receive e-mail marketing from Success Continuing Education (SCE) (including other Success Continuing Education (SCE) properties) and our third-party advertisers.
In addition, you agree that such act constitutes a purchase, an inquiry and/or an application for purposes of the Amended Telemarketing Sales Rule, 16 CFR §310 et seq. (the “ATSR”). With respect to the ATSR, and notwithstanding that your telephone number may be listed on the Federal Trade Commission’s Do-Not-Call List, Success Continuing Education (SCE), affiliated companies, and third party organizations, retain the right to contact you via telemarketing in accordance with the terms of the ATSR. Moreover, by registering with, or requesting information from, a third-party advertiser at or through the Website, such action shall constitute a purchase, an inquiry and/or an application with the respective third-party advertiser for purposes of their compliance with the ATSR and you may be contacted via e-mail, direct mail and/or telemarketing by such third-party advertiser in accordance with the terms of the ATSR.
Success Continuing Education (SCE) reserves the right to release current or past user information and Personal Information: (A) in the event that we believe that the Website and/or the Service is being or has been used in violation of the Website Terms and Conditions or to commit unlawful acts; (B) if the information is subpoenaed; or (C) if Success Continuing Education (SCE) is sold or acquired. Moreover, you hereby consent to disclosure of any record or communication to any third-party when Success Continuing Education (SCE), in its sole discretion, determines the disclosure to be appropriate including, without limitation, sharing your e-mail address with other third-parties for suppression purposes in compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, as amended from time to time.
This Website may contain links to other third-party owned and/or operated websites. In some cases, you may be able to make a purchase through one of their third-party websites. In these instances, you may be required to provide certain information, such as a credit card number, to register or complete a transaction at such website. These third-party websites have separate privacy and data collection practices and Success Continuing Education (SCE) has no responsibility or liability relating to them. Additionally, some third party departments of insurance, regulatory and designation authorities and others that are involved in the processing, funding and reporting of your CE information, as well as broker/dealers, general agencies, professional organizations, and marketing partners may require the transfer of some or all of the Personal Information that you supplied to Success Continuing Education (SCE). When necessary, Success Continuing Education (SCE) provides this information to those third parties that are involved and our marketing partners (subject to restrictions contained in applicable state and federal law). Success Continuing Education (SCE) is not responsible for the privacy practices of these third party underwriters and lenders.
Success Continuing Education (SCE) provides you with the opportunity to receive special offers, products and/or services from other third-party companies. To receive such offers, products and/or services, certain of your Personal Information (other than the Sensitive Information) will be shared with such third-party companies (subject to restrictions contained in applicable state and federal law), so that they may provide their offer, product or service to you without requiring that you first complete another registration form.
All collected information is stored in a technically and physically secure environment. When our registration/application process asks users to enter Sensitive Information (such as license numbers, Social Security Number, etc), and when we store and transmit such sensitive information, that information is encrypted and is protected with SSL encryption software. While we use SSL encryption to protect Sensitive Information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user Personal Information (including Sensitive Information) off-line. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information (including Sensitive Information), we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems. Access to this information is strictly limited, and not accessible to the public. All of our users’ Personal Information, not just the Sensitive Information, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example a customer service representative) are granted access to Personal Information. Our employees are dedicated to ensuring the security and privacy of all Success Continuing Education (SCE) user information. Employees not adhering to our firm policies are subject to disciplinary action. In compliance with applicable federal and state law, we shall notify you and any applicable regulatory agencies in the event that we learn of an information security breach with respect to your Personal Information. You will be notified via e-mail in the event of such a breach. Please be advised that notice may be delayed in order to address the needs of law enforcement, determine the scope of network damage, and to engage in remedial measures.
To stop receiving future communications from Success Continuing Education (SCE), please send an email to email@example.com with the subject “unsubscribe”.
