Ellucian is committed to maintaining Your confidence and trust, and accordingly maintains the following Privacy Policy to protect the personal information You provide on the Commons. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on each page of our Commons site, and at every point that personally identifiable information may be requested. Questions regarding this policy should be directed by telephone to 800.328.2835 or by email to info@ellucian.com.

Collection and Use of Information

Ellucian will collect only Your personal information (such as Your name, address, and telephone number) if You provide it voluntarily. If You do not want this information to be collected by us, please do not submit it. Ellucian will not retain Your personal information longer than is necessary for the purpose for which it is collected.

In addition, in the course of using our site we automatically track certain information about You. This information includes the URL that You just came from (whether this URL is on our site or not), which URL You go to next (whether this URL is on our site or not), what browser You are using, and Your IP address. Many sites automatically collect this information.

We also employ the use of cookies to assist us in this process. A cookie is a small piece of computer code that enables web servers to identify users. Cookies do not store any information that You have provided to our site. They are simply identifiers. You have the ability to delete cookie files from Your hard drive at any time or avoid cookies by configuring Your browser to reject them or to notify You when a cookie is being placed on Your hard drive.

We only use the information which is provided through our site to help us improve The Ellucian Commons features, improve our products and services to You, to provide You with the information You have requested, to inform You about additional products or services that may be of interest to You, for marketing purposes and for other internal purposes.

Ellucian occasionally hires other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, sending mail and processing event registration. Ellucian will provide these companies with only the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose. Other than what is described, Ellucian does not sell, trade or rent Your personal information to others outside of Ellucian companies and their advertising and promotional agencies and consultants. If You do not wish to receive this information, please contact us by telephone at 800.328.2835 or by email to info@ellucian.com.

At any time, while accessing the Commons, any User, while online, may decline participation in any activity that asks for information (i.e. survey email, or ecommerce). Your choice not to participate will in no way affect Your ability to use any other feature on the Commons.

Security

Ellucian has implemented a number of security features throughout the Commons to prevent the unauthorized release of or access to personal information. For example, database information is kept separate from live servers and is firewall protected. Please be advised, however, that although Ellucian has endeavored to create a secure and reliable site for You, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to or from Ellucian via the Ellucian site or e-mail cannot be guaranteed. When disclosing any personal information, You should remain mindful of the fact that it is potentially accessible to the public, and consequently, can be collected and used by others without Your consent. Ellucian has no responsibility or liability for the security of information transmitted via the Internet.

External Web Sites

To the extent hyperlinks or banner advertisements incorporating hyperlinks are utilized to access third party sites, You should be aware that these third party web sites are not controlled by Ellucian and, therefore, are not subject to this Privacy Policy. You should check the privacy policies of these individual sites to see how Your personal information will be utilized by the operators of those third party web sites.

Your Consent

By using the Commons, You consent to the collection and use of this information by Ellucian. Ellucian may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on this page. Your continued use of the Commons following the posting of changes to these terms will mean You accept these changes. You may have the right to access the personal information which Ellucian has collected about You. You may also have the right to modify any errors contained in that information. Please contact us for more details.
