Privacy Policy

Provo College is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated as you make full use of our many offerings.

WHAT PERSONALLY INDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION DOES PROVO COLLEGE COLLECT FROM ME?

Provo College collects information in several ways from different parts of our Web sites. Some personal information is gathered if you request information online. Provo College may ask for personal information such as your name, email address, gender, zip/postal code, occupation, industry and personal interests.

In addition to requesting information, we may ask you for personal information at other times, including (but not limited to) when you download a file (such as a .PDF file) from us; when you ask us to contact you; when you join our mailing list; register for a campus event, and when you report a problem with one of our sites or services. If you contact Provo College, we may keep a record of that correspondence. Provo College may also occasionally ask users to complete surveys that we use for research.

WHAT ARE COOKIES AND HOW DOES PROVO COLLEGE USE THEM?

As part of offering and providing customizable and personalized services, Provo College may use cookies to store and sometimes track information. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from our web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive.

Generally, we may use cookies to:
(1) Automate certain areas of the Provo College web sites or online forms.
(2) Measure certain traffic patterns, which areas of the Provo College web site you have visited, and your visiting patterns in the aggregate. We use this research to understand how our users’ habits are similar or different from one another so that we can make each new experience on the Provo College website a better one. We may use this information to better personalize the content, and promotions that you and other users will see on our sites.

HOW DOES PROVO COLLEGE USE MY INFORMATION?

Provo College’s primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you, the user, with the information you are requesting. The College does research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us upon registration, or from our server log files. We do this to better understand and serve our users. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis.

WITH WHOM DOES PROVO COLLEGE SHARE MY INFORMATION?

Provo College will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission. Provo College may disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating Provo College’s Terms of Service or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Provo College’s rights or property, other Provo College users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. Provo College may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services.

Provo College does not sell or rent user information to anyone.

WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT MY PRIVACY?

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Provo College cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you’re online.
