The Privacy Policy of Cornell College


Thank you for visiting Cornell College's Web site(s) and service(s). Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we've developed this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used within our sites and services. Please read on for more details about our privacy policy.

Cornell College may collect personal information to make our site(s) and service(s) more relevant and rewarding for you to use. This information is used for internal purposes only. We may also use your information to update internal systems. This allows for seamless delivery of services and resources to you across the College. Cornell College does not sell, rent, give away, or loan any information regarding its members to any third party other than agents and contractors of Cornell College.

Some of our site(s) and service(s) may contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult the other sites' privacy policies as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.

To enhance and personalize your experience, some of our web pages may use "cookies." Cookies are text files that your Web browser places on your computer's hard drive to store your preferences. When using cookies, we retain only user names and passwords for website applications within the cookie. For more information about cookies, please visit http://www.cookiecentral.com.

Agents and contractors of Cornell College who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this privacy policy by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for Cornell College.

Cornell College may release personal information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (i.) comply with law, (ii.) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements, or (iii.) protect the rights, property, or safety of Cornell College, our users, or others.

On our secure servers, we use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") technology to guarantee the confidentiality of online transactions made on our site. SSL authentication and encryption of the information that you send to us over the Internet helps protect your online transaction information from third party interception.

We urge you to protect your own privacy. We recommend that you do not share any account information or passwords used to access our site(s) or service(s). We would never request your password from you.

Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this privacy policy.

Unfortunately, despite all of our efforts, there is always a risk that third parties may unlawfully intercept transmissions. This reality is true of all Internet use. As a result, we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit, and you transmit all information at your own risk.

By using our Web site, you consent to the collection and use of your information by Cornell College.

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
