In the course of its business ASSB may collect information from courses participants (also known as students or learners) as well as potential students, either electronically or in hard copy format, including information that personally identifies individual users. We may also record various communications that learners or potential students have with us.

The personal information supplied by individuals to ASSB will only be used to provide information about study opportunities, program administration, academic information, and to maintain proper academic records. If an individual chooses not to give ASSB certain information, then we may be unable to enrol the individual in a course or supply them with appropriate information.
