- Use of non-personally identifiable information. The University uses non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form to build higher quality, more useful online services by performing statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of the site visitors, and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the site.
The site may contain links to other Internet Web site, including co-branded or other affiliated sites that may or may not be owned or operated by Pepperdine. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, the university is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such sites, including such sites’ use of any information (such as IP number, browser type, or operating system) collected when visitors to the site click through links to those sites. Even though such information might not identify the user personally, users should be familiar with the privacy practices of those other sites.
- Use of personally identifiable information. The University provides notice to potential registrants of this site whose personally identifiable information will be collected during the registration process. Such notice is provided simultaneously with the user’s registration on this site; moreover, this policy itself serves as notice that such information is collected under those circumstances. Although users may not “opt out” of the registration process and still receive access to the services, users may choose to “opt out” of receiving promotional materials from the University and/or other business partners. If the user does not “opt out” of receiving such promotional materials, Pepperdine reserves the right to release user’s personally identifiable registration information to third parties who provide goods or services that the University believes may be of interest to the user. If the user decides to discontinue receiving promotional information from such third parties, please contact those third parties directly, or contact Pepperdine at email@example.com.
Pepperdine limits its own e-mail contact and solicitations to those users who have not “opted out” of receiving such communications. The solicitations are limited in that they, among other things, will clearly indicate the originator of the e-mail and provide the user with a method of “opting out” of receiving future communications of a similar nature.
Finally, Pepperdine may use individual members’ data to “pre-populate” forms, which are displayed for the purpose of collecting individual data by the University. In no case does pre-populating a form transfer any data to any third party. Only if the user voluntarily requests that such data be transferred will any transfer take place – for example, if/when a user clicks a “submit form” button or other button.
Pepperdine reserves the right to release any and all information contained within access logs concerning any visitor when that visitor is in violation of the University’s “Terms of Service” agreement or other published guidelines, or partakes (or is reasonably suspected of partaking) in any illegal activity, even without a subpoena, warrant, or other court order, and to release such information in response to discovery requests, or in response to any circumstance in which the University, in its sole discretion, deems an emergency. Pepperdine cooperates with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who may be using its servers or services for illegal activities. Pepperdine also reserves the right to report any suspected illegal activity to law enforcement for investigation or prosecution.
Where authorized and subject to all applicable laws, you may have the right to request access to, a copy of, rectification, restriction in the use of, or erasure of your information. You also have the right to withdraw consent to the use of your information, without affecting the legitimacy of the University's use of the information prior to receipt of your request.
If users would like to have personally identifiable information changed or removed from Pepperdine’s database, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep in mind that there will be residual information remaining within the databases, access logs, and other records, which may or may not contain such personally identifiable information. The residual information will not be used for commercial purposes; however, the university reserves the right, from time to time, to re-contact former customers or users of this site if lawful.
Information collected in the European Union will be transferred out of the European Union to the University. If you believe that the University has not complied with applicable foreign laws regulating such data or data transfers, you have the right to file a complaint with the appropriate authorities.
