This Privacy Policy does not govern the practices of third-party payment processors, and, if you disclose your information to a third-party payment processor, different rules may apply to its use and disclosure of the information you disclose to such third-party payment processor. You acknowledge that if you provide information to third-party payment processors, that information will be subject to their user agreements, terms and conditions of sale, privacy policies and other applicable policies and agreements, which may differ from this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the policies of third-party payment processors.

Third Parties

You may be given the opportunity to elect to access and use third party service or applications (“Third-Party Services”) through the Site. This Privacy Policy addresses only The College’s collection, use and disclosure of information collected by The College from you through the Site. It does not apply to the practices of third parties that we do not own, control, employ or manage, including, but not limited to, any Third-Party Services. If you disclose your information to a Third-Party Service, including through the Site, different rules may apply to that third-party’s use or disclosure of the information you disclose to that third party. You acknowledge that if you provide information to third parties, that information will be subject to the privacy policies and user agreements associated with those Third-Party Services, which may differ from this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the content, user agreements or privacy policies of Third-Party Services.

Some content or applications within the Site are served by third parties, including content providers and application providers. These third parties may use cookies, alone or in conjunction with web beacons or other tracking technologies, to collect information about you when you use our Site. The information they collect may be associated with your personal information. We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used.

Information Collected Automatically

As you navigate through and interact with the Site, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment and your actions and patterns on the Site (“User Activity Information”), including (i) details of your use, including traffic data, logs and other communication data and the resources that you access and use and (ii) information about your computer, including your operating system, IP address, and other data.

The User Activity Information that we collect automatically helps us to improve our Site and to deliver a better and more personalized service, including by enabling us to estimate our usage patterns, display information you request in your relevant time zone as appropriate, and recognize you when you return to our Site.

The technologies we use for this automatic data collection may include cookies. A cookie is a small file placed on the hard drive of your device. We use cookies to help analyze Site usage, customize our services, measure Site effectiveness, and promote trust and safety.
