Confidentiality and Privacy
According to the Federal Education Rights to Privacy Act (FERPA) students have the right to review their educational records. They have the right to request changes to those records if they can prove they are currently in error. Information about a student’s records will not be released to third parties without the expressed, written consent of the student (including transcripts and financial records). However, Thirdmill Seminary reserves the right to release such records to its contractors and government agencies as necessary to conduct the ordinary operations of Thirdmill Seminary, including tax reporting, compliance with federal and state laws and court orders, and financial complications or audits. We will request such third parties maintain the confidentiality of student records.
Protecting your privacy is important to us. We value the trust you have placed in us, and your continued confidence is important to us. We make safeguarding personal information gathered in electronic transactions a priority (i.e. IP addresses, cookies, etc.) We maintain security practices to keep all information safe and secure. We do not sell customer information.
