Under no circumstances does HBLI divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
What Types of Information Do We Collect About You and Why? We gather personally identifiable information that you expressly provide when you enter information into a form on our Web site, including, without limitation, your name, mailing address, e-mail address, and other unique personal identifiers (e.g., date of birth) ("Personal Information").

Additionally, a representative from Home Base Learning Institute may use your personally identifiable information that you provided to subsequently contact you by telephone in order to obtain your feedback on the quality of the follow-up you received and/or discuss additional education related opportunities even if you have registered your telephone number with the National Do Not Call list.
