What information do we collect? How do we use it?
When you enroll, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number, and expiration date and other basic information found on the online application. This allows us to process and complete your enrollment and to notify you for school purposes. We will not disclose your credit card number and other personal financial information except as necessary to collect payment.

In addition, Lincoln Academy may share personal contact information and demographic information about our students and inquirers with reputable business partners such as advertisers and other third parties. However, we do not share your email addresses. We also do not share your private student records or your grades, except as may be required by law.
How does Lincoln Academy protect customer information?
We use a Secure Server for collecting personal and credit card information. The secure server layer (SSL) encrypts (scrambles) all of the information you enter before it is transmitted over the internet and sent to us. Furthermore, all of the customer data we collect is protected against unauthorized access. We use SSL throughout our whole website, not just on certain pages. This gives you the peace of mind that your information is protected all of the time.
