UNIVERSITY’S ELECTRONIC PRIVACY |
AND DISCLAIMER NOTICE STATEMENT
This notice applies to official University of Connecticut websites. An official University website is one that is sponsored by the University of Connecticut, whether it is stored on the University’s central server, on a University distributed server, or on a hosted or managed web server provided by a third party. Official University of Connecticut webpages are those that have been created by the University, its campuses, colleges, schools, departments or other administrative unit, for University business. Official University web pages clearly convey a relationship to the entire University and support and advance the University’s mission.
This is an official website of the University of Connecticut. It is the policy of the University of Connecticut to respect and protect the privacy of its website users consistent with the applicable laws of the United States and the State of Connecticut (including the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act (http://www.state.ct.us/foi/2001FOIA/2001FOIAStatutoryIndex.htm) and the Connecticut Personal Data Act (http://www.state.ct.us/pda.htm)). We do not collect, use or disclose any personally identifiable information about our users without their knowledge.
Visitors should be aware that the University of Connecticut, as a State of Connecticut agency, could be required to disclose personal information in response to valid legal processes such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order, or pursuant to the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act. All record keepers face the possibility that disclosure of their records may be compelled in some civil, criminal, or administrative matter.
Notice about the Information We Collect: This notice applies to all information collected by or submitted to official University of Connecticut websites. While the notice attempts to explain the University’s privacy practices with respect to any personal information associated with those websites, it shall not be construed as a contractual promise. In addition, the University reserves the right to update this Notice when and if the University’s privacy practices change. Visitors are encouraged to refer to the Notice if they have a question about the University’s privacy practices at any given time.
Voluntary Information You Provide to Us
While most voluntary information is only maintained long enough to provide the specific service requested, some personally identifiable information may be retained as part of backup procedures. In addition, some personally identifiable information may be added to University databases to be used for other University business and academic purposes.
If personal information is requested on this web site or volunteered by the user, state law and the United States Privacy Act of 1974 may protect it. However, this information, including any email communications, is retained in accordance with the University's records retention schedules and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law.
