Privacy

Empire State College’s web privacy policy describes what data is collected from users of the college’s website and Moodle learning management system, and how that information is used. Because this privacy policy only applies to the college’s website and hosted learning management system, you should examine the privacy policy of any external websites you access through them.

The MALET program also uses Elgg for a community space, and uses analytics on this space to inform program improvement.  No personally identifiable information is gathered, and the only personal information about you that you provide voluntarily (by sending an email or initiating an online transaction, such as a survey) is collected.  When you navigate the MALET community space in Elgg, the following information about your visit is automatically collected and stored:

1. The Internet Protocol address and domain name of your Internet service provider. The Internet Protocol address is a numerical identifier assigned either to your Internet service provider or directly to your computer, which can be used to direct internet traffic to you;

2. The type of browser and operating system you used;

3. The date and time you visited this site;

4. The web pages or services you accessed at this site;

5. The URL or web site address of the web site you visited prior to coming to this website and from which any web page on this site was linked; and

6. If you downloaded a form, the form that was downloaded.

None of the foregoing information is deemed to constitute personal information.

This information that is collected automatically is used to improve the site's content and to help us understand how people are using this site. This information is collected for statistical analysis, to determine what information is of most and of least interest to our students, and to identify system performance. The information is not collected for commercial marketing purposes and we do not sell or distribute the information collected from the site for commercial marketing purposes.

Information is also collected from users who participate in activities on some sites external to the Elgg community space – including commons/wordpress. Details regarding privacy and opt-out consent for information gathered via google analytics while interacting on MALET’s external google tools (including google chat and blogger) can be found here.
