COLLECTION OF INFORMATION BY OTHERS
As you use the Internet, a trail of electronic information is left at each web site you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to as “Clickstream Data,” can be collected and stored by a web site’s server. Clickstream Data can tell us the type of computer and browsing software you use and the address of the web site from which you linked to Eckerd College’s EE Websites. We may use Clickstream Data as a form of non-personal information to anonymously determine how much time visitors spend on each page of Eckerd College’s EE Websites, how visitors navigate throughout Eckerd College’s EE Websites and how we may tailor our web pages to better meet the needs of visitors. This information will only be used to improve Eckerd College’s EE Websites. Any collection or use of Clickstream Data will be anonymous and aggregate.
From time to time we may supplement information you give us with information from other sources, such as information validating your address. Thus, information we obtain through Eckerd College’s EE Websites may be intermingled with and used in conjunction with information obtained through sources other than Eckerd College’s EE Websites, including both offline and online sources.
DISCUSSIONS AND COMMUNITY TOOLS
We may, from time to time, make review lists, chat rooms, forums, message boards, blogs, newsgroups and other community tools available to you. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information for other users to view and for us to use. For example, from time to time, we may use the content you write (including your name or screen name if you post it) for promotional purposes, in email newsletters or elsewhere, and by using Eckerd College’s EE Website and/or these chat rooms, forums, message boards, newsgroups, and other community tools, you agree that we may do so. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information in these areas, since anyone – not just us – may access your publicly posted information.
