The San Diego Community College District (SDCCD) is committed to protecting
your privacy online. The purpose of this statement is to inform
you of our policy in the collection of personal information that
we may collect from you and how it is used by the SDCCD.
Personal information collected on the SDCCD website
The SDCCD website only collects personal information that is provided
to us when you complete online forms such as the online application
for admission, employment applications, alumni response forms, or
requests for information to be sent to you.
Occasionally, visitors to our website may be asked to fill out a brief survey
to be used for research purposes. In such a case, your information
may be used to help us improve our website or for the institution's
marketing and promotional purposes. Please be assured that it will
be treated confidentially within the institution.
Sharing personal information
The SDCCD does not share, rent or sell personal, financial or health-related
information to anyone and strictly adheres to all state and federal
laws pertaining to privacy of records. Additionally, the SDCCD will
not disclose personal information unless we have your written permission
or are under court order to do so.
The SDCCD web server collects Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for
system administration purposes, to track system usage, or for security
purposes. These IP addresses are kept in a log file and are a normal
part of the web server. An IP address only identifies a computer
or, in the case of pooled IP addresses, one among a group of computers.
Personal information is not available from an IP address. Additionally,
this information would not be distributed or shared with a third
party unless directed by court order.
A cookie is a small data file sent from a website through your web
browser and stored in your computer's hard drive. When you return
to a website, the cookie informs the web server who you are and
what your preferences are, thereby triggering the website to customize
your browsing experience at that site. For example, if a site greets
you by name with a "welcome back" message, that is accomplished
by using a cookie. You must enable your browser to receive cookies.
Currently, we do not utilize "cookie" technology on the SDCCD website;
however, should cookies be implemented in the future, they would
only be used to help us enhance your online experience.
