If you would like to exercise your privacy rights, you do not need to create an account. However, we may ask you to provide additional Personal Information so that we can properly identify you in our dataset to track compliance with your request. We will only use Personal Information provided in a request to review and comply with your request. If you choose not to provide this information, we may only be able to process your request to the extent we are able to identify you in our data systems.

If you have provided us with Personal Information to apply for or obtain a Nitro College service, please refer to the Nitro College Privacy Policy to learn about our privacy practices with respect to Personal Information and how you may opt-out of certain types of sharing with Authorized Third Parties.

The Right to Access / Data Portability
You have the right to access and obtain a copy of the specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you in the last 12 months, upon verification of your identity.

The Right to Correct
You have the right to request that Nitro College correct inaccurate Personal Information that we collect and maintain about you.

The Right to Request Deletion
You have the right to request that Nitro College delete your Personal Information, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies.

To Submit a Request to Exercise Your Right to Knowledge, Access (Portability) and Delete
Call us at 1-833-618-0661 Monday-Friday 8am-8pm EST or complete the  Consumer Rights Request Form.

We will need to verify your identity before processing your request, and this verification may require us to obtain additional Personal Information from you. We will only use Personal Information provided in a consumer request to review and comply with your request. In certain circumstances, we may decline a request to exercise the rights described above.

If you wish to submit a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child, the verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information to allow us to reasonably verify you are legal guardian or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

Response Timing and Format
We will endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of receipt. If we are unable to process your request in such time, we will inform you of the delay in writing.

We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, depending on your preference selection. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the receipt of your verifiable consumer request's receipt. If we are unable to comply with all or a portion of your request, we will explain the reasons we cannot comply.

We reserve the right to charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request if we determine that such request is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that your request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

The Right to Opt-Out of the Sale or Sharing of Personal Information 
You have the right to direct us not to sell Personal Information we have collected about you to Authorized Third Parties. You have the right to limit the use and disclosure of Sensitive Personal Information we have collected about you.

To opt out of the potential sale or sharing of your Personal Information or to limit the use and disclosure of your Sensitive Personal Information, visit the opt-out page by following the Link below:


Minor children under age 16.
We do not sell or share the Personal Information of consumers we know to be less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the "right to opt-in") from either the consumer who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age. Nitro College does not knowingly solicit, sell, share, or collect any Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected Personal Data from a child under age 13, we will delete the Personal Information promptly. Consumers who opt-in to Personal Information sales or sharing may opt-out of future sales at any time. If you believe that we may have any Personal Information from a child under 13, please call us at 1-833-618-0661 to opt- out of future sales or sharing or to inform us if your minor-child, is under the age of 13.

The Right to Non-Discrimination
You have the right to be free from discrimination for exercising any of the rights described above.

The right to non-discrimination does not prohibit us from offering you certain financial incentives that may result in different prices, rates or quality levels of products or services. In addition, please note that if the exercise of the rights described above limits our ability to process Personal Information (such as in the case of a deletion request), we may not be able to offer our services to you in the future.
