This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their information is being used on the Benedictine College main web site (https://www.benedictine.edu). By using this website, you consent to the privacy practices described in this policy.

 

What is personally identifiable information?

 

Personally identifiable information, as described in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. It includes:

 

  • A first and last name
  • A home or other physical address, including street name and name of a city or town
  • An email address
  • A telephone number
  • A social security number

 

Collection of personally identifiable information

 

Benedictine College does not automatically collect personally identifiable information about visitors to the benedictine.edu web site.

 

Benedictine College may use online forms to collect personally identifiable information, including your name and contact information (email, address, telephone number) and other identifiers in order to allow you to submit questions and comments, register for events, or sign up for email newsletters.

 

How do we use personally identifiable information?

 

We may use the personal information we collect from you when you register for an event, sign up for a newsletter, apply to the college, or use other site features in the following ways:

 

  • To contact with you within the context in which you provided the information. For example, sending you an email reminder that the event you registered for takes place in two weeks.
  • To reach out to you with additional communication based on the personal details and interests you sent to us. For example, if you attended an annual event one year, we may send you a promotional postcard for the event the following year.

 

At any time, you may opt out of receiving further communications from Benedictine College, such as email and physical mail. However, you may not opt out of receiving simple responses to your use of site features, such as confirmation emails for web form submissions.

 

We will not reveal personally identifiable information about you to unaffiliated third parties unless the following conditions apply:

 

  • We have your consent to share the information.
  • We are sharing such information in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal processes.
  • Other conditions as described in this Privacy Policy.

 

We may share information that does not personally identify you without restriction.
