Privacy and Cookie Policy

Welcome to our Privacy, Cookie & Terms of Use Policy

Let’s start with the basics, like who we are

We’re Life Chiropractic College West.  For the rest of this policy, we’ll mostly refer to ourselves as, “Life West” as it’s easier to type and rolls off the tongue more easily.  To keep the lawyers happy, we may also use a variety of pronouns such as “we” and “us”, or we may simply refer to one of our websites like “lifewest.edu”.

We’ll keep the language as light as possible below, but your privacy and how we collect and use your data is important.  You should take it seriously, whether that’s here on one of our sites, or any other website you visit.

Here’s our address: Life Chiropractic College West, 25001 Industrial Blvd., Hayward, CA 94545.

We’re located in The United States and if you need to reach us by phone, you can call us at (510) 780-4501.  If you have a question or concern about any of our websites and would prefer to email us, you can send that email to webmaster@lifewest.edu.  We’d love to hear from you.

Website Visitors

Like the vast majority of companies who have websites on the internet, Life Chiropractic College West collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. 

Life Chiropractic College West’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Life Chiropractic College West’s visitors use our websites. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our sites.

We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blog posts and other areas of our sites.
