  3. We strive to provide you with access to and control over the information you give us, and we take the protection of your information very seriously.
  4. We take extra precautions for our younger learners as described in our Children’s Privacy Notice, including restricting child accounts to automatically block features that would allow a child to post or disclose personal information.
  5. We do not display advertising on ATFA Academy. Our mission is to provide you with a world-class education, not to sell you products.
