Privacy Policy

YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION: WHAT WE COLLECT, AND HOW WE USE IT:
St. Gregory's University remains committed to protecting your privacy. Outside users may visit, read and otherwise use St. Gregory's University's website without revealing personal information. We do not collect personal information about you when you visit our website unless you choose to provide that information to us. If you do nothing during your visit but browse through our website, read pages and download information, the web server will automatically gather and store certain information about your visit. This information does not identify you personally. We may use such information, or any information you do provide, to monitor our web site's performance and to make improvements where necessary. For example, we may identify portions of our website that are most heavily used and whether users are mainly from inside our campus or from outside of our campus.

Information Stored Automatically
By default, all web server log files capture Internet Provider (IP) addresses. These are the internet address of your computer. We may use your IP address internally to help diagnose us any problems we may have with our server, to help us administer our web site and to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or cause damage to our site. We do not link those IP addresses to anything personally identifiable and do not use this information for marketing or data sharing.

A cookie is a small amount of information sent from a web server to your computer. We use cookies when someone comes onto our web site to facilitate quick and efficient web site use. Cookies are a piece of text, not a program, and allow users a faster browsing experience while visiting our site. Any activity you engage in while you are at the St. Gregory's University web site may be tracked and the data may be used to help us better structure our site for optimum performance. The browsing activities you engage in are not individually identifiable. In addition, we do not use cookies to track your internet activity before you enter or after you leave our web site. You may elect to disallow cookies sent by St. Gregory's University web site by selecting an option on your browser. If you disallow cookies, you may not be able to view all elements of the web site in the manner in which it was designed.

The Information You Provide
If you choose to provide us with personal information by sending an email to St. Gregory's University, or by filling out a form with your personal information and submitting it through our web site, we may use that information to provide the information or services you have requested.

We do not collect personal information for other purposes. The information you provide is not released to any third party for commercial marketing, gains or otherwise without your permission except where it is required by law to do so (such as in the investigation of fraud, unauthorized web site activity or other inappropriate act). Personally identifiable information collected via the official St. Gregory's University web site is used for official University business only unless otherwise stated on particular websites.

SECURITY
To make online viewing at St. Gregory's University a safe and secure experience, we use a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) capable browser. This means that any credit/debit card or other information you send is encrypted, making it extremely difficult for others to access your private information during transmission. In addition, we have the appropriate managerial procedures and policies in place to ensure that your data remains safe and secure.

While St. Gregory's University takes reasonable steps to store any information which we accumulate in a secure server, the Internet is not a secure medium for the transmission of information. St. Gregory's University cannot accept responsibility for the security of information you send to or receive from us over the Internet or for any unauthorized access to or use of that information.

Unauthorized attempts to upload information to or change information on our website are strictly prohibited and may be punishable by law.

THIRD PARTY HOSTING
St. Gregory's University may contract with one or more third parties to maintain and host our web site. Accordingly, any information you submit, including personal information, may be placed and stored on a computer server maintained by this third party. Although St. Gregory's University attempts to ensure that the outside third party meets our standards for data storage, your use of our web site and any personal information you submit to the web site constitutes your acknowledgement that such information or content could pass through and be stored in servers outside our control. You agree that the University has no liability or responsibility for any such pass through or storage of your personal information.
