Privacy Policy

We have created this statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. We do not collect personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. This policy is your guide to how we will handle information we learn about you from your visit to our Web site.

Reading or Downloading

We collect and store only the following information about you: the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com, if you are connecting from an America Online account, or princeton.edu if you are connecting from Princeton University's domain), the date and time you access our site, and the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked to our site.

We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, and to help us make our site more useful to visitors.

Responsible Use of Online Directory

Ursinus College has taken reasonable precautions to secure the personal information available through the Service. The online directory is password-protected and intended to allow access by registered Ursinus College alumni and faculty only. Furthermore, the directory is located on a secure web site that incorporates encryption technology. Although these precautions should effectively protect any personal information available through the directory from abuse or outside interference, a certain degree of privacy risk is faced any time information is shared over the Internet. Therefore, through the Update My Profile feature of the Alumni Online Directory, you have the ability to control the nature and amount of information available to other alumni through the Service.

 

The Service is intended to allow you to keep in touch with other alumni for personal purposes only, and not for business purposes. Communications among alumni are not intended for publication or retransmission in any media. Using the addresses or other information contained in the online directory for any public, private, commercial or political mailing is strictly prohibited. Individuals will lose access to this feature if such infractions are proven.

If you complete the Profile update form and share your personally identifying information, this information will be used only to provide you with more targeted content. We may use your contact information to send further information about our organization or to contact you when necessary. You may always opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the "Opt Out" section below.

Sending us an Email

You also may decide to send us personally identifying information, for example, in an electronic mail message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a Web form that provides us this information. We use personally identifying information from email primarily to respond to your requests. We may forward your email to other employees who are better able to answer you questions. We may also use your email to contact you in the future about our programs that may be of interest.

We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. Except as might be required by law, we do not share any information we receive with any outside parties.

If you sign up for one of our email lists, we will only send you the kinds of information you have requested. We won't share your name or email address with any outside parties.
