This policy outlines the information that Flashpoint Chicago may collect on the Flashpoint Chicago.edu web site or partner sites and how that information may be used, as well as the terms and conditions of use of this site.
1. Collection and Sharing of Supplied Personal User Information and Data
The Flashpoint Chicago web site(s) will not collect personally identifiable information (personal data) about visitors, such as name, address, telephone number, or email address unless the information was provided voluntarily. Visitors should not voluntarily provide personal data if they do not want it to be collected. When collected, personal data may be used in the following ways:
- To fulfill a request
- To better understand the needs of visitors, thereby allowing Flashpoint Chicago to improve services
- To reply to or contact and supply supplementary information to users
Flashpoint Chicago will not sell, rent, or market personal data to third parties.
In some cases, information that is not personally identifiable may be automatically collected and/or logged. For example, information about the visitor’s browser, operating system, IP address, and the domain name of sites that are linked to the Flashpoint Chicago web site(s) allows the college to accommodate the needs of the majority of visitors. It also assists with troubleshooting and diagnosing problems with browsers and servers, and the information helps produce important statistics on how often pages are visited. Finally, this information can be used in the detection of security breaches and the safeguarding of Flashpoint‘s computing resources and other proprietary information.
