As part of an ongoing service to our clients, Springhouse Education & Consulting Services is dedicated to protecting your privacy. Most of our Web pages do not ask for any personal information. There are situations however, when we do need information from you in order to respond to a service you have requested. The Springhouse privacy statement explains our data collection needs and its use in those situations. This privacy statement only applies to Springhouse.com.
Request of Personal Information
Sometimes it is necessary to gather personal information so that we can contact you in response to your request. Generally, this information is requested when you are registering for a course or sending an inquiry via email. Personal information collected by Springhouse.com is limited to that which is needed to assist you with the service you requested. This information is used for response to your request, to maintain high quality service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of Springhouse.com.

We use your personal information for the following purposes:

- To provide confirmations, directions or changes in schedules.
- To contact you if a question arises concerning your request.
We occasionally partner with other companies to provide extended services on our behalf. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Springhouse may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Springhouse or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Springhouse and its family of Web sites, or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Springhouse employees.

An essential part of our service is to keep our clients informed by sending out periodic e-mails concerning technical services or training related to a product or service you requested. You can unsubscribe to these mailings by sending a request via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Security of Your Personal Information
Springhouse.com is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.
