Your Use of This Site
THIRD PARTY NOTICE: You understand, acknowledge, and accept the fact that we at CollegesofWashington.com are not affiliated with any organization, person or company of any kind mentioned on this CollegesofWashington.com website in any way. Company names, products, logos, trade marks, and any other proprietary intellectual property or otherwise belongs to the rightful owner, which is not us. You should not assume, even if a company name is in the website/domain name of this website, that there is an express, implied, or otherwise agreement, joint venture, partnership, or other relationship between us as website proprietors and any of these companies that are discussed merely for educational or other purposes.
The opinions, estimates, expectations, and projections contained in any disseminated information are accurate as of the date of release and are subject to change without additional notice. We do our best to ensure that the research has been discerned from reliable and trustworthy sources, and therefore believe the positions and beliefs shared are accurate and complete, though obviously not all material known or obtained will be contained, as distilling information into manageable quantity is in large part a goal. We at CollegesofWashington.com are not responsible for any errors or omissions contained in any disseminated material and are not liable for any loss incurred as a result of using the material in any way. The intent is merely to provide useful information, products, and services, some of which we may be compensated for.
Nothing offered by CollegesofWashington.com should be considered personalized career or education advice. While our employees and/or contributors may answer your general customer service questions, they can not help you with specific questions and decisions, as they are not licensed to deal with your particular situation. No communication by our employees and/or contributors to you should be construed as personal, individualized advice. Readers should not rely on the information given by us to make school or career decisions. Rather, readers should use the information at CollegesofWashington.com only as a starting point, at most, to do additional independent research so that the reader is able to make his or her own decision. You should consult with competent, professional help and read any available information.
Just as our website content does not constitute education and career advice, and you should therefore consult a trained professional of your choosing, the same is true of other disciplines where expertise is gained through education, experience, and skill-building. Thus, nothing on our website or otherwise disseminated by CollegesofWashington.com in conjunction with it should be taken as investment, medical, legal, accounting or other such advice. When in doubt, consult the hired help of your choosing, as you are ultimately responsible for your own affairs.
Privacy Policies for this Website.
Your privacy is important to all of us at CollegesofWashington.com. To guard your privacy we present this notice describing our online data practices and the options you have about the way your data is collected and used. You agree to these policies by virtue of your continued use of our web site.
State Law and Accompanying Rights

These State-based rights may strengthen, augment,, or otherwise in some manner compliment any privacy privileges you have inherently or under Federal law. Our policy is to comply wholly with the privacy policies of every jurisdiction in which we do business. Accordingly, you are free to contact us at any time to assert any State rights.
Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy
Our website will not collect or retain data at our site from those we actually know are under 18 years of age, and no part of our website is arranged to attract anyone under 18.

Acquiring Personal Data
When browsing our web site, the IP address used to view our website might be logged along with the dates and times of access. This information is strictly used to study patterns, manage our website, track users movement, and assemble wide market data for our use such as statistical examination and site improvement. And any captured IP addresses are not connected to personally identifiable information.
Other data may be obtained as well by CollegesofWashington.com. The page that referred you to our site is commonly known. The length you were on our website, and your destination when you leave our website might also be tracked. Similar data sometimes recovered by countless other websites includes the kind of operating system the computer you are using to view our website has. Furthermore, the choice of web browser is normally observed.
Managing Individual Details
Note that any information you supply to others apart from our website or our vendors is fully optional. As an example, if you disclose something in a blog post comment, that private information is now public, and our website have no control over it.
Our principal purpose for collecting information from you is purely to run our business. We can use this data internally to better serve you. This is general website data collection, and helps generate a better end-user experience. We may share this information about our website visitors as a whole, not individually, with third parties for business purposes, in our sole discretion.
While we are strong privacy champions at CollegesofWashington.com, there are a situation when even we may be compelled to abandon these principles. Illegal activity or other significant acts or allegations could create legal liability for our site. In those circumstances, we reserve the right to reveal your information, or else may simply be obligated to do so by law. On the other hand, there may be conditions when we would need to share your personal information in order to safeguard our own interests. As an example, in incidents of suspected or alleged copyright infringement or other intellectual property violations, it might be crucial to share private information.
Google Adsense and the DoubleClick DART Cookie
Google, as a third party advertising vendor, may use computer cookies to serve advertising on this CollegesofWashington.com website. The usage of DART cookies by Google allows them to show ads to visitors that are somewhat based on their visits to this website, including previous visits, as well as other sites on the internet.
Links to Other Internet Sites
We have included hyperlinks on this website for your use and convenience. We are not responsible for the privacy policies of these websites. You ought to know that the privacy policies of these sites will vary from our own.
Federal Trade Commission Compliance
We make every effort at candor regarding any services we use, recommend, or otherwise write about at CollegesofWashington.com. We attempt to clearly differentiate between our own services or products versus those of third parties, to facilitate questions, support, and customer care. Similarly, we may profit from the sale of others’ products or services at CollegesofWashington.com. It is our goal to embrace the guidelines and requirements of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for the benefit of all.
Note that material connections may not be made known at each and every single advertisement or affiliate link. Thus, to be safe, you should simply assume there is a material connection and that we may receive compensation in money or otherwise for anything you purchase as a result of visiting this website, and also that we may be compensated merely by you clicking any link.
You should assume that we may be compensated for purchases of products or services outlined on this CollegesofWashington.com website that are not owned, created, licensed, or otherwise materially controlled by us. While most people naturally understand that individuals make a living by way selling other people’s products and services, a third party can also affiliate with someone else’s products or services and be rewarded by the product or service owner for helping advertise their offering.
Having said that, you cannot depend on anyone else looking after your interests but you. So, it is best to always do your own research into various opportunities and offers, to the extent that leaves you comfortable, doing your own due diligence prior to making any purchase of any product or service from this CollegesofWashington.com website or any other.
You can operate from the position that any website proprietor, including us at CollegesofWashington.com, will have a material connection to the product or service provider, and may be compensated as a result of your purchase, unless expressly stated otherwise. Aside from your purchases, note that even you actions might lead to earnings for this site. For instance, there could be ads displayed on this CollegesofWashington.com website that we are compensated for whenever a website visitor clicks on them.
To the extent that we have every interest in positively continuing our business relationship with you, we certainly prefer to write about only those solutions that we believe will help you. Just because we are not the founder of the product or service, we are not going to hold back information of this offering from you. If you can get some benefit from it, we want you to do well. Thus, we make a good faith effort to only present to you services that we either personally use, have actually tried, or else have faith in the reputation of the provider or concept. We make this determination based on all relevant and applicable information at the time of the recommendation.
While it would be counterproductive to mention products or services that you’ll find unsatisfactory or of lower quality, and while we try to act with good faith motives, it is possible to be partially affected by the monetization factor of listing products or services on our CollegesofWashington.com site. Furthermore, there are occasionally other relationships between parties that are not monetary, including personal capital, goodwill, or otherwise, that could affect the decision to promote a specific offering. Due to this hypothetical possibility, a person should not rely entirely on what we have to say, but instead just form your own independent opinion just to be safe.
Testimonials regarding the end result or effectiveness of using any service are provided to embellish your understanding of the offering. While great effort is made to make certain that they are factually honest, we at CollegesofWashington.com are not liable for omissions and errors. Aside from human error, some details may be provided by third parties, such as customers or service providers. The best results are not uncommonly associated with the best efforts, discipline, and so on, and thus the results portrayed cannot, in any way, be construed as common, normal, or associated with the average user’s experience with any given service. The results, though real, might be the result of the conflation of a number of positive situations that could be difficult to replicate, and so you should proceed with the knowledge that your end result can differ from any shared on our site.
Consulting a Professional
We are in no way claiming to counsel you on issues related to law, finances, or health. If you require guidance in these arenas, you should consider getting your own counsel from attorneys, accountants, tax experts, financial investment advisors, or medical professionals before taking any action. Nothing we may ever communicate at CollegesofWashington.com, in print or spoken word, will ever be intended to constitute any such counsel, as we do not claim to be professionals in any of those disciplines. You assume all risk for actions taken, losses or other issues stemming from your use of any service or product in any way connected with or mentioned on this website. Indeed, such decision is solely your own, or else determined in conjunction with the professional guidance of the advisor of your choosing.
Use Of Products and services
The price paid for services and products change over time. Price and value can be quite relative. You recognize the reality that your purchase reflects your own attribution of value at the time of purchase, and that the price may increase or decrease in the future.
The outcome you experience is dependent upon many factors. Attitude, aptitude, circumstances, experience, education, and perseverance are just a few factors. There is no way to realistically estimate your specific outcome with any amount of dependability or assurance.
Past performance is no promise or forecaster of future performance. Any testimonials or other representations of results are for illustrative purposes only and, though every effort is made to ensure they’re factually honest, they are not meant to imply or insinuate what is likely to happen with you. Your reliance on them as such is not advised.
Affiliates and Third Parties
We only have control over, and thus only accept responsibility for, the content of this CollegesofWashington.com site created by us. Any representations made by others should be considered prima facie unauthorized. You may also read, or otherwise come into contact with comments about any of our products, services or offerings, and should assume those have likewise not been authorized.
We may permit our products to be marketed through other individuals, businesses, websites, and otherwise.
You should not construe a third-party offer as an endorsement by that third party of any service or product. You should merely see it as an offer to buy something. Note that we are unable to fully control all promotion practices by all parties. We make reasonable efforts to ensure our affiliates comply with our guidelines and represent our products and services consistent with our recommendations. However, at CollegesofWashington.com we are unable to always warranty they will do so. You are always free to report questions via our contact information.
Please take note that our function in briefing you on products and services other than our own is simply as an information supplier. We do not provide any customer support for those items and you should always contact the owner of those services or products to have issues answered to your satisfaction before purchasing.

Not Legal Advice/No Attorney-Client Relationship
If you believe your rights have been violated, it may be a serious issue. This DMCA notice exists specifically to execute our efforts, as website owners, to avoid and stop infringement on intellectual property rights. It is no replacement for the guidance of qualified legal counsel. Additional remedies and action, such as against an internet service provider (ISP), may exist. You may wish to seek legal support immediately.
For your convenience and to speed resolution, notice of alleged infringement can be delivered to CollegesofWashington.com via email, using the email address and/or contact details provided on this website. We warn that you will be liable for any and all statutory and common law damages, in addition to court costs and legal representative fees, if you falsify a claim that your copyrights have been violated. Substantial awards have already been granted for false complaints, so seeking the help of capable counsel is advised.
Assuming you still wish to claim copyright violation, you should provide the following to speed up the process:
1. Identify in satisfactory detail the copyrighted item you believe has been violated, by offering the URL to the protected work or otherwise.
2. Identify the URL of the webpage that you assert is infringing the copyrighted work listed in item #1 above.
3. Provide contact details for yourself (email address is preferred, phone is encouraged).
4. Provide information sufficient to enable us to notify the owner/administrator of the allegedly infringing webpage or other content such as a blog or forum posting (email address is preferred).
5. Include the following statement: “I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.”
6. Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.”
7. Digitally sign your affirmation.
Note that the party representing the affected website or supplier of content may issue a counter-notification under sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and so we may again post or link to the content in that case.
For your benefit, counter notification may be tendered via email, using the email address and/or contact details provided on this website. We warn that you will be liable for any and all statutory and common law damages, together with court costs and attorney costs, if you falsify a claim that others’ copyrights have NOT been violated
Assuming you still wish to file a counter-notice, you should provide the following to speed up the procedure:
1. Identify the specific URLs or other unique identifying information of material that we have removed or disabled access to.
2. Provide your name, address, telephone number, email address, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under subsection (c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.
3. Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that each item of content identified above was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled, or that the material identified by the complainant has been removed or disabled at the URL identified and will no longer be shown.”
