What Information does AIU Collect?
Information You Provide to Us:
We receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us through the Application. For example, through the initial authentication process, we may collect Personal Information such as your name and email address. Certain information may be required to register for the Application or to take advantage of some of its features.
We may communicate with you if you’ve provided us the means to do so. For example, if you’ve given us your email address, we may send you email promoting AIU events and opportunities, or about your use of the Application.
Information Collected Automatically:
Whenever you interact with our Application, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or device, which may include your IP address, geolocation data, device identification, “cookie” information, the type of browser and/or device you’re using to access our Application, and the page or feature you requested. “Cookies” are identifiers we transfer to your browser or device that allow us to recognize your browser or device and tell us how and when pages and features in our Application are visited and by how many people. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device’s acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features.
We may use this data to customize content for you that we think you might like or would be relevant to you, based on your usage patterns. We may also use it to improve the Application and/or maximize its benefit to you. For example, this data can tell us how often users use a particular feature of the Application, and we can use that knowledge to make the Application interesting to as many users as possible. Or, this data may tell us your location, so that we may provide you with certain notifications or information that are relevant to that location, including, for example, the next bus to arrive at the bus stop closest to you, or the menu available for the next meal at a nearby dining hall.
Will AIU Share Any of the Personal Information it receives?
We may share your Personal Information with third parties as described in this section:
Information that’s been de-identified: We may de-identify your Personal Information so that you are not identified as an individual, and provide that information to our Quality Assurance office for feedback purposes and further improvement of the university operation. We will never disclose aggregate usage or de-identified information in a manner that would identify you as an individual person.
Polls and Surveys: The Application may offer you the ability to participate in polls and surveys (“Surveys”). Your answers to Survey questions will not be shared in personally identifiable form with anyone, though we may use and disclose answers in aggregate, anonymized form.
Is Personal Information about me secure?
Your account is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You must prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer or device and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.
We endeavor to protect the privacy of your account and other Personal Information we hold in our records, but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.
What choices do I have?
You can always opt not to disclose information to us, but keep in mind some information may be needed to register with us or to take advantage of some of our features.
What if I have questions about this policy?
