Your privacy is very important to us. At College Crossroads Consulting we have a few fundamental principles that we follow: We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.) We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights. We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site. College Crossroads Consulting operates the website collegecrossroadsconsulting.com. It is College Crossroads Consulting’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, College Crossroads Consulting collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. College Crossroads Consulting’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how College Crossroads Consulting’s visitors use its website. From time to time, College Crossroads Consulting may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. College Crossroads Consulting also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. College Crossroads Consulting only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenters IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to College Crossroads Consulting website choose to interact with College Crossroads Consulting in ways that require College Crossroads Consulting to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that College Crossroads Consulting gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive College Crossroads Consulting’s updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, College Crossroads Consulting collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with College Crossroads Consulting. College Crossroads Consulting does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
College Crossroads Consulting discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on College Crossroads Consulting behalf or to provide services available at College Crossroads Consulting’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using College Crossroads Consulting’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. College Crossroads Consulting will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, College Crossroads Consulting discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when College Crossroads Consulting believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of College Crossroads Consulting, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of College Crossroads Consulting’s website and have supplied your email address, College Crossroads Consulting may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with College Crossroads Consulting. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. College Crossroads Consulting takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
