We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personally identifiable information you submit to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. When you enter sensitive information on our Web pages, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We use the same type of encrypted transmissions when providing your application information to your selected colleges and universities and when you provide your payment information to the institution's chosen payment processor. We also restrict physical and electronic assess to our servers through the use of perimeter security and industry-standard firewalls. However, be aware that any emails you send to or receive from us are inherently not secure. Contact us and provide us with a phone number for us to contact you if your question or comment involves sensitive personally identifiable information.

In addition to encrypted transmissions and physical and electronic security, we require you to select a unique user ID and password when you register to use the Gateway Application Web Site. You must enter your user ID and password each time you log in to the Gateway Application Web Site to access your account. It is your responsibility to maintain the secrecy of your password and to change your password periodically. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone in order to avoid unauthorized access to your account. Each time you are finished working in your account, you should logout of your account, close your browser window and clear the computer cache to avoid unauthorized access to your account. You should contact us immediately if you believe your password or account has been compromised.

No method of transmission over the Internet or data security scheme is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially reasonable means to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about our security practices, you may contact us by any of the means described below.
