It is the general philosophy of Travel Agent University On-Line that travel professionals who access www.travelagentuniversity.com do so to improve their professional standing and their ability to serve their customers. This is best accomplished in an open environment of communication between travel agents - our users - and travel providers. By registering for www.travelagentuniversity.com, you are acknowledging your desire to keep informed about travel destinations and services, and you are allowing Travel Agent University On-Line to actively participate in that process.
www.travelagentuniversity.com compiles information on travel agencies, including ARC, CLIA, and/or IATA numbers, addresses, and other contact information. Information compiled on individual users includes the agent's name and a password that the agent selects at the point of registration, as well as test results for online exams completed by the agent. The password acts as a unique identifier, and allows us to keep users' university records separate, calculate test results online, and redeem incentives provided by program sponsors. In addition, we collect and analyze information regarding usage of various parts of the site by individuals. We use or assign "cookies" - a feature of your Internet browser which identifies your computer (but not you individually) to our system - although if you access advertiser or sponsor information (including advertiser or sponsor web sites) through www.travelagentuniversity.com you may be assigned a different cookie by the advertiser or sponsor through a process we do not control.
