Your privacy is paramount. Simply stated, our policy is to share no personal information about you when you visit our website, unless you affirmatively choose to make such information available to us.
Information We Gather/Log Data
When you visit this website, our web server automatically recognizes only the Internet domain and IP address from which you accessed the site. This information does not result in identification of your personal email address or other personal information. In addition, we gather information regarding the volume and timing of access to our website by collecting information on the date, time and website pages accessed by our visitors. Your session will be tracked, but you will remain anonymous as a user.
This data is used in conjunction with Google Analytics to gather metrics on site usage, including geographic location of visitors and pathways navigated through the website. As part of Google Analytics, we also gather device and browser-related information. We do this so we can improve the content of our website, and this information is not shared with other organizations. Again, only aggregate information is collected and individual visitor's personal information is not identified.
Information You May Provide
If you choose to share personal information with us—by sending a message or filling out an electronic form with personal information—we will use the information only for the purposes you authorized. Some of the information may be saved for a designated period of time, but we will not disclose the information to third parties or other government agencies unless required or authorized to do so by state or federal law.
Collection and Use of Email Addresses
Under Florida law, email addresses are public records. If you do not want your email address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact the College by phone or in writing.
