Judson University is committed to protecting your privacy when you visit our website by restricting the use of collected information. This privacy policy outlines how we collect information when you visit our site and how we use that information.

Information we collect

We collect various types of information from our website visitors for appropriate administrative purposes, so we can adjust the site to meet the needs and expectations of our users. Some information is collected automatically, while the user voluntarily provides other information.

When visiting our website, we automatically collect limited, non-personal identifying information that your browser makes available, such as your IP address, browser type, computer or device type, the website from where you navigated to our site, the pages on our site that you view, and your country, territory, or region. Our website also uses cookies that uniquely identify your browser so that we may provide content that is most relevant to your needs. Cookies do not reveal your name or any personally-identifying information.  All a cookie tells us is the functions you performed while on our site, so we can keep track of the transaction.  You have the right to accept, review, reject or delete cookies through your browser’s privacy settings. However, rejecting cookies may disable certain features used on our website including but not limited to storing and recalling information, servicing requests for information, and processing payments.

The only personally-identifying information gathered by our website is that which is voluntarily provided by users.  You can provide information to us on our site through various means, such as contacting us through our site’s inquiry or application forms. Depending on which feature you are using, you may be asked to provide personal information such as, name, address, telephone number, and email address in order to complete a form.

How we use this information

Any of the information that we collect from you may be used to personalize your experience and better respond to your needs, improve our website, to evaluate our marketing and customer service efforts, and process transactions. Personally identifiable information that you provide may be linked with the non-personal identifying information that we already collect in order to further improve these efforts and allow you to more easily use the site, sign up for events, and fill out forms.

A mailing address and email address that you provide may be used to send you occasional news, updates, information about services, or updates pertaining to an order or expressed interest in the university. If you do not wish to receive marketing emails or phone calls, you may use the opt-out feature on our emails or call 847.628.2520.

Judson University will not sell, rent, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information, except for the under the following limited circumstances.  We allow access to such information to trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, but only after those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information if you consent to such release or when we believe release is appropriate to comply with or required by the law, enforce our site policies or user agreements, or protect the rights, property, or safety of Judson University, users of this website, or others. In contrast, non-personally identifiable information may be used or provided to other third parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
