The College does not collect personal information about you when you visit our website unless you affirmatively choose to make such information available to us. The information that we collect varies depending on which page of the website you use. For example, if you submit an inquiry form, we require that you include your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address.

When you visit our website, our Web server automatically recognizes only the Internet domain and IP address from which you accessed our website. This information is stored as a "cookie." The cookie contains a randomly generated number that does not correspond nor relate to the identification of your personal e-mail address or other personal information. In addition, we gather information regarding the volume and timing of access to our website by collecting information on the date, time, and website pages accessed by visitors to the website. Again, only aggregate information is collected, and individual visitors' personal information is not identified.

Peirce College uses procedural and technical safeguards to guard the information that you provide to us against loss, theft, unauthorized access, and disclosure, including SSL encryption technology. Despite these industry standard safeguards, we do not promise that your personal information or private communications will remain private.


Our Use of Information We Collect

We collect this information so that we can improve the content of our website, and this information is not shared outside of Peirce College.

We do not sell, lend, or rent your personal information to third parties. We comply with applicable law concerning the handling of personally identifiable data and do not disclose such information to third parties unless required to do so by law.


Third Party Collectors of Information

Our Privacy Policy is limited to the use and disclosure of information that Peirce College collects from you. To the extent that you disclose your information to third parties, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of your information. We make no representations or warranties as to how third parties may use your information.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our websites.
