We understand that many people enjoy some level of anonymity in their online courses. Beyond your name and a short background bio statement you provide as an orientation exercise, you are not required to divulge any personal information while taking a NFHTA course.
Personally identifiable information required by NFHTA to create your enrollment record is held in strict confidence under provisions established by the Family Rights and Privacy Act as amended in 1995.
NFHTA will not make public personally identifiable participant information without written consent from the participant, except as specified under the provisions of the Family Rights and Privacy Act. Exceptions to this policy include disclosure to the following groups:
- Staff and faculty within NFHTA
- Institutions where you are seeking admission
- Persons or organizations providing financial aid
- Accrediting agencies carrying out accreditation functions
- Organizations conducting studies for, or on behalf of, educational groups to improve instruction
- Persons in compliance with a judicial order or subpoena
- Persons in an emergency if the information is necessary to ensure the safety of other participants and NFHTA personnel.
In circumstances when NFHTA provides student information to individual or organization, we inform the recipient that they are not permitted to disclose this information to others without the written consent of the participant.
NFHTA will never in any instance sell or share our participants’ email addresses.
Aggregate and summary information regarding online training, without personal identification, will be included in NFHTA reports and materials and may be provided to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
