What information do we collect, and how do we use it?
We only collect personal information on a voluntary basis. Our Web site may be visited without revealing any person information about yourself. We do, however, collect several pieces of information from everyone who accesses our Web site. These include:
- the URL that referred you to our site
- the pages you access at our site
- how long you stayed on a page
- what page you were on when you left our site
- the type and version of both your operating system and Web browser
None of this information is ever used to personally identify you or any other user, but is used to generate reports of site usage. These reports help us identify what parts of the site are most popular, what search engines visitors are using to find our Web site, and helps us determine overall Web site usage, identify problem areas, and provide better services for the site visitor. Our Website does provide specific services that will require you to provide personal information. If you choose to share personal information with us by sending a message or filling out an electronic form with personal information, we will only use that information as is necessary to conduct official business. For example, in order to apply to the College, you must provide us with personal information through a secure Web page (secure SSL server with 128-bit encryption). This information is used solely for reviewing and processing your application. Some of the information may be saved for a designated period to comply with applicable legal requirements. We will never disclose any information that we gather from you to vendors, sponsors, other third parties or other government agencies, unless required to do so by state or federal law.
What happens if you choose not to provide us with your information?
If you choose not to provide personal information through our Website, you may be unable to utilize some of the features of our site. When it is possible, we will attempt to provide you with an alternative method for the same service.
The King’s College is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of any other site, even if you might link to that site from ours. Content and views presented by these sites may not reflect the views of The King’s College. We recommend that you review the privacy policies of any site you link to before submitting any personal information. Remember that any time you voluntarily disclose information in an unencrypted online forum such as e-mail, Web forms, or chat rooms, you information can be collected and used by others. While we are committed to protecting your privacy on our site, it is ultimately your responsibility to protect your personal information while online.
