Politely Armed Texas Privacy Policy

Privacy and Personal Security go hand-in-hand

The short version:

  • We will use our best effort to keep your information safe.
  • We will not send you unsolicited email. You will receive emails specifically related to any class you request, register to attend, or inquire for information regarding.
  • We will not sell, rent, or trade your information to any third party.*

Hopefully you noticed the * above. It is there because, as part of some classes, we are required to report your participation in the class to a third party (such as the State of Texas or Texas Parks and Wildlife Department). The information reported may include your name, date of birth, contact information, and ID numbers. For example, in order to certify someone as completing the Texas LTC class, we must notify the state, with identifying information for the individual. If you have a question as to whether information must be transferred to a third party as part of the class, please talk with the instructor.
