Protecting Our Users’ Privacy
Protecting the users’ privacy is Campuscruiser’s top concern. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices, and applies to campuscruiser.com, prod.campuscruiser.com, mobile versions, and mobile apps.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a data protection and privacy regulation put forth by the European Union (EU) law which protects all individuals within the EU and the European Economic Area (EAA). This includes export of Personal Identifying Information (PII) outside the EU and EAA.
PII is any data that may identify you personally. Examples of data we may store in our system include, but are not limited to name, address, telephone number, and IP address. The GDPR was implemented to give individuals control over this personal data. Basically the regulation applies if the data controller (your school who may collect data from EU residents), or processor (Campuscruiser processes data on behalf of your school), or a person (whose data has been collected) is based in the EU. Sometimes this regulation also applies to organizations based outside the EU if they collect or process personal data of individuals located inside the EU.
By submitting personal information through any Campuscruiser site, you expressly consent to the processing of your personal information in the United States.
Campuscruiser may collect PII regarding individuals which is specifically and knowingly provided by the individual user or the college they attend. Under no circumstances will user’s personal information be given to any other party (except the college they attend) unless otherwise stated at the time of collection or as required by law. We will never share your e-mail address with other third parties without your prior opt-in.
Collected Information (from you, your school, or the Campuscruiser system)
- First and Last Name
- Address (home, business, e-mail)
- Company Name
- IP Address
- Device Type
- How you are using our system
- Date/Time Stamp (per visit via Cookies)
- Information collected via survey
Because each user has access to a set of Personal Tools, some content may be stored that may include PII. This may also be true if the user uploads files or participates in discussion topics within communities on the Campuscruiser site.
Campuscruiser utilizes a widely used tool called Cookies which sends a small piece of data to the user’s computer when visiting a Campuscruiser site. There are two types of Cookies: Session cookies (which expire at the end of the browser session) and Persistent cookies (which stay on a user’s computer until deleted)
