Incarnate Word Academy (IWA) maintains this web site as an information resource and service for the public. In the course of providing you this information, we are able to gather and archive several types of data about visitors to our web site. Incarnate Word Academy is committed to the privacy of its students and families. As part of this commitment this policy describes our data collection, usage, retention, deletion, security, and Internet practices for data collected on this website. Please address any concerns to IWA’s Director of Technology and Communications at the contact address shown below.
Collection of Information.
We collect three types of information through our website:
- Information Collected Automatically
- Information Collected for Customization
- Personal Information
Information collected automatically includes IP address, operating system, browser type, the time and date of access, etc. This information is retained temporarily in our system logs to assist in the management and security of our website. By use of our website, you are assumed to consent to collection of this type of data, which is anonymous. Log file information is further described below.
Information collected for customization utilizes “cookies” saved on your computer. Cookies are small text files that help you navigate through our website, see certain features, or save your authentication information. These cookies may either be session (temporary during your access of the website) or persistent (survive after you have left the website). If you do not want to have either type of cookies stored on your computer, you can turn off this capability in your browser. IWA only utilizes cookies that you can control through browser settings. Cookies are further described below.
Personal information (information about or associated with a family or student) is collected in a number of locations on this website and includes personally identifiable information (e.g. name, address, birthdate, email userid, identifying government identifiers, financial information). We do not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it by participating in an activity, such as posting a blog entry, sending us e-mail, participating in a survey, or completing an online form.
Use of Personal Information.
When a user submits personal information, it is used only for the purpose stated at the time of collection. Personal information submitted to this website will not be transferred to any non-affiliated third parties unless otherwise stated at the time of collection or as required by court order. We may utilize subcontractors to carry out the purposes for which data was collected. These subcontractors will be under written agreement to provide the same safeguards to protect your personal information, as described under security below. We will never sell or lease your personal information. We will retain your personal information for as long as necessary to provide you with the services you are using at IWA or as needed to comply with our legal obligations or enforce our agreements.
In order to facilitate data analysis, educational purposes, or to maintain your “logged in” status when visiting protected areas, cookies can be used. They are not linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Web browsers have settings allowing you to reject cookies, or selectively accept cookies, or delete cookies previously accepted. Please be aware that rejecting or deleting cookies from our website may make certain functions unavailable to you.
Like most standard website servers we use website statistic packages to analyze trends in how our website is accessed and utilized. Information monitored includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, geographic location of visitors (country, city), browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, time spent on pages, and keywords used to find our site via search engines. This information is anonymous and cannot be directly linked to individual users. We may use it to identify high-use or low-use areas of the website, pinpoint problem areas of the site, analyze broad demographic trends in our visitors, and make decisions about how to make it easier for people to find and navigate our website.
This website may contain links to other sites that users may find interesting. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites, including their views or the accuracy of information contained on their site or servers. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.
This site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.
