The College takes reasonable precautions to protect accounts, personal information collected by the College, and personal communications from unauthorized access or disclosure. Except as required by law or authorized by college policy, the College does not share personal information with any third-party. The College may process personal information internally and through external services providers in furtherance of its mission and college normal operations; otherwise, the college will, when reasonably practicable, seek the consent of the subject of personal information before transmitting that information to a third-party for processing.

College websites that collect personal information will only collect information reasonably necessary for the intended purpose, and will, where reasonable, provide the user with the intended purpose of personal information being collected. These sites will also ensure information communication security by using server authentication, encryption and data/message integrity.
If the Director of Information Technology believes a system has been compromised, the College will notify the authorized users and appropriate State authorities.
The College does not routinely seek out, examine, disclose, use or modify the contents of individually assigned accounts, personal communications, records or college computers.
