Assumption University has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our commitment to the privacy of visitors to our website. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website (www.assumption.edu).
Student information is protected by the Federal Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA).
Collection & Use of Personal Information
Many of the forms on our site require visitors to give us contact information (like their name and email address) and demographic information (like their zip code, age, or income level). We use information from registration forms to send each visitor information about Assumption University. This information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary.
When a visitor sends us email via our forms, such as our Feedback Form, we collect that person’s IP address (the unique identifier of a computer on the Internet) and use it to help us diagnose problems with our server. In fact, a majority of our webforms collect and pass along the sender’s IP address to the recipient of the email generated by the form.
All of the data collected via our web forms is confidential and internal to employees of the University. At no time will Assumption University sell or otherwise distribute to parties external to Assumption University the contact information or demographic data collected via its website.

This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Certain portions of the Assumption University website are restricted by domain to members of the Assumption University community only. Still other pages may require users to enter their username and password.

We may share hashed portions of your personally identified information with certain strategic partners to make our University more responsive to your interests and/or those of like-minded students. For example, we may aggregate your email address together with the email addresses of students or prospective students, locally hash such data, and transmit the resulting hashed data to Facebook for the purpose of creating “Custom Audiences” (where targeted ads are sent to people on Facebook who have already been on our Site), and “Lookalike Audiences” (where targeted ads are sent to people on Facebook who have similar characteristics to people on our Custom Audience list). If you wish to opt-out of this use of certain hashed portions of your personally identified information, please email us at email@example.com, and we will begin the process of removing your data from our Custom Audience list.
