Website Privacy Statement

We understand that security and privacy are important issues for visitors to our website (the "Site") and recognize our obligations to keep your information secure and confidential. That is why we maintain the following standards to help protect information that personally identifies you.

Scope

Harrison College is part of a multi-state organization; this Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) applies to all websites and domains owned by Harrison, except that a privacy statement posted on a Harrison website specific to a particular Harrison program will apply instead of this Policy. 
Collection of Information

You may choose to voluntarily provide the following information:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Phone Number
  • Email Address
  • Other personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") to have access to some features of the Site, by sending us an email through a mailer or web form, a text message, signing up for a mailing list, or sending us a mailing list so we can send you an enrollment application or other promotional material. You may always refuse to provide your Personal Information, however this may lead to our inability to provide you with certain information or materials.

We or our business partners may also collect information that is anonymous, such as your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number used to identify your computer on the Internet) or the type of browser you are using, through network traffic logs, web visit logs or cookies. We reserve the right to maintain, update, disclose or otherwise use anonymous Information, without limitation.

 
Network Traffic Logs

Harrison employs software programs to do such things as monitor network traffic, identify unauthorized access or access to nonpublic information, detect computer viruses and other software that might damage Harrison computers or the network, and monitor and tune the performance of the Harrison network. In the course of such monitoring, these programs may detect such information as email headers, addresses from network packets and other Personal Information. Personal Information obtained from these activities is used only for the purpose of maintaining the security and performance of Harrison networks and computer systems.

 
Web Visit Logs

Harrison websites routinely collect and store information from online visitors to help manage those sites and improve service. This information includes the pages visited on the Site, the date and time of the visit, the IP address of the referring Site, the domain name and IP address from which the access occurred, the version of browser used, the capabilities of the browser and search terms used on our search engines. Personal Information obtained from these activities is not released to external parties without your consent unless required by law.

 
Cookies

Cookies are pieces of information stored by your web browser on behalf of a website and returned to the website on request. This Site may use cookies for two purposes: to carry data about your current session at the Site from one web page to the next and to identify you to the Site between visits. Accepting the cookies used on our Site, sites that are “powered by” another company on Harrison’s behalf or sites where our ads appear may give us access to information about your browsing behavior, which we may use to personalize your experience. Cookies are typically classified as either “session” cookies or “persistent” cookies.

  • Session cookies do not stay on your computer after you close your browser.
  • Persistent cookies remain on your computer until you delete them or they expire. Most browsers automatically accept cookies by default, but you can usually refuse cookies or selectively accept cookies by adjusting the preferences in your browser. If you turn off cookies, there may be some features of our Site that will not be available to you, and some Web pages may not display properly.

You can find information on popular browsers and how to adjust your cookie preferences at the following websites:

Harrison does not store persistent cookies on our computers nor forward them to any external parties. Unless otherwise notified on this Site, we do not use cookies to track your movement among different websites and do not exchange cookies with other entities.


How We Use Your Personal Information

Harrison uses your Personal Information for the following purposes:

  • To process your requests
  • To administer and improve the Site and related services
  • To notify you of our offerings, services and products that maybe of interest to you
  • To provide Internet security
  • To meet legal requirements

Harrison may work with associated businesses which may perform certain functions on our behalf, such as sending email messages, text messages (assuming the recipient has “opted-in”), managing data, processing credit card payments or providing services to users. These businesses have access to your Personal Information only to the extent necessary to perform these specific functions and may not use it for any other purpose. The testimonials posted on our Site are only posted with the expressed permission of the individual or company who provided that testimonial.

We may use third party advertising companies to place ads on the Site and to place our ads on other web sites. If Harrison is involved in the sale of a substantial portion of its business assets, anonymous or Personal Information may be among the transferred assets.

 
Privacy of Children

Links

The Site may contain links to other sites on the Internet that are owned and operated by third parties. If you access those links, you will leave the Harrison website. Harrison does not control those third-party sites or their privacy practices, which may differ from Harrison’s privacy practices. Harrison does not endorse or make any representations about third-party websites. The personal data you choose to provide to or that is collected by those third parties is not covered by the Harrison Privacy Policy. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any website before submitting your personal information.

Harrison may also provide social media features on the Site that enable you to share information with your social networks and to interact with us on various social media sites. Your use of these features may result in the collection or sharing of information about you, depending on the feature. We encourage you to review the privacy policies and settings on the social media sites with which you interact to make sure you understand the information that could be shared by those sites.

We have policies and procedures in place to protect the privacy and confidentiality of your Personal Information that we collect and maintain. All Personal Information is stored on our secured servers, behind a firewall at a data center with access to data controlled. Any unauthorized use of the Site may result in criminal and/or civil prosecution.

 
Phishing Scams

It is a policy of Harrison to not send unsolicited emails seeking certain highly sensitive personal information, such as social security numbers, date of birth or credit card number. In the event you receive such an email and you have not previously been in direct contact with its sender, please do not respond and do not open any attachments as they may contain malicious code that will infect your computer.

 
Changes to the Policy

We may modify this Policy at any time by posting a revised version of the Policy here, with an updated effective date. Accordingly, we urge you to frequently review the Policy. We will always apply the Policy under which your information was collected, unless we obtain your prior consent. By using the Site and providing us with your personally identifiable information, you consent to our use of such information as described in this Policy.
