We are not responsible for any breach of security or for any actions of any third parties which result from any such security breach. These terms inform you of the information that ATC collects from you at this site, and what we do with it.
IP Address – Internet Protocol Address – a unique number usually assigned by an Internet Service Provider (ISP) to identify computers connected to a network (either a local network or the internet, or both). Your IP address does not identify you personally to us. We use this information to deliver our web pages to you upon request, to tailor our sites to the interests of our users, and to measure traffic within our sites.
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) – high level security protocol for transmitting encrypted documents over the internet that prevents eavesdropping, interception, or tampering.
To apply for admissions, or personalize our website experience, you may be required to provide certain information as part of the process. We do not sell or disclose contact information of our users to third parties. ATC will not disclose any personally identifiable information collected online to entities outside of ATC except: (1) where you have given your permission; (2) where the information is considered public information under the Georgia Open Records Act O.C.G.A. § 50-18-70 et. seq., or other applicable laws; (3) where required to do so by other operation of law. Visitors should be aware that information collected through this website may be subject to examination and inspection, if such information is a public record and not otherwise protected from disclosure.

Personal information that you provide via email or through other online means will be used only for purposes necessary to serve your needs. The service may involve redirecting your inquiry, information or comment to another person or department better suited to meeting your needs.
ATC can use your IP address to compile site statistics, and the popularity of its various pages and functions. ATC will not attempt to match any personally identifiable information that you provide with your IP address, unless there are reasonable grounds to believe that doing so may provide information that is relevant to or necessary as part of an investigation concerning the violation of a law or College terms. ATC may also collect information regarding the type of browser and operating system used to access this site along with the internet address from which linked to the ATC site, as well as links followed to other sites from the ATC site.
