The Northwestern Foundation, Inc. and Alumni Association has adopted this Privacy Statement in order to inform you of its policies with respect to information collected on this website. Your use of this website constitutes your acceptance of this Privacy Statement and your consent to the practices it describes.
The Foundation is committed to respecting your privacy and recognizing your need for appropriate protection and management of the personally identifiable information you share with us. The purpose of this Privacy Statement is to let you know what personally identifiable information we may collect from you when you visit our website, how we use such information, and the choices you have regarding the use of, and your ability to review and correct, your information. This Privacy Statement applies only to users accessing this website.
HOW WE COLLECT YOUR INFORMATION
You can visit many of our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. When you visit our website, we may log general data, such as your domain name, the name of the Web page from which you entered our website, which pages you visit on our website, and how much time you spend on each page. Individual users will remain anonymous, unless you voluntarily tell us who you are.
There may be places on our website where we ask you to provide certain information about yourself, such as your name, shipping/billing address, telephone number, email address, and credit card information. We also maintain a record of your online transactions, donations, and/or purchases. Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to purchase products, or access certain services, offers and content on our website.
HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
Photos and video taken during Foundation and/or university events may be used on our website and/or in our marketing materials. If you have concerns about images or other media used by our organization, please contact us at [email protected].
We use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to monitor use of and improve our website as well as for internal analysis. In particular, we use IP addresses to analyze trends and statistics, administer the website, and gather information about use of our website. Your IP address is not linked to personally identifiable information.
We use the personally identifiable information you provide for internal purposes, such as confirming your transaction, subscription, or registration; analyzing non-personal information for trend and statistics analyses; informing you of our new products, services, giving opportunities and offers; and providing you with other information that we believe would be interesting to you. Although unlikely, in certain instances we may disclose your personally identifiable information when we have reason to believe that it is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against persons or entities who may be causing injury to you, the Foundation, or others. We do not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with third parties or nonaffiliated companies except as required by law or in response to a government investigation.
