Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

At Virginia College and our affiliated campuses and schools, we know that privacy is an important concern for you when you visit web sites—ours or anyone else's. We take seriously the need to make sure any personally identifiable information that we receive from you is kept secure and confidential. In this document, we will detail our efforts to ensure that any personal data you may choose to give us remain confidential. We may from time to time make changes to this privacy policy so you should come back frequently to review the details of those modifications. This policy will always be followed unless we first obtain your prior consent. By using any web sites affiliated with Virginia College and providing us with personally identifiable information, you are giving your consent to allow us to use that information in the ways described below.

Information Collection

On our web sites, you may be asked to voluntarily provide us with your name, address, telephone number, email address, or other information that could be identifiable as your own personal information. You may refuse to provide personal information, and by so doing, it may make it impossible for us to provide you with particular data or services you may be seeking. Virginia College or vendors with whom we contract for services may also collect anonymous data, such as the IP address of the computer you are using at the time. We may also place cookies on your computer. These steps are taken to help make our web sites of greater benefit to visitors. We specifically reserve the right to store, disclose or otherwise use non-personally identifiable data of this type, without limitation. By visiting our sites, you are acknowledging this reservation of rights.

How we plan to use this information

Virginia College intends to use any information that is personally identifiable to supply you with specific information you may have requested as well as to provide you with information about other offerings, products or services that we think may be of interest to you. We also use all data collected to make our sites more useful to users. In the course of collecting information, Virginia College may engage other companies or vendors to perform some services to aid us in gathering data or distributing information. These companies will only have access to your personal information to the extent necessary to accomplish the specific tasks for which they have been engaged. They will not be allowed to use that data for any other purpose at all. If the assets of Virginia College should be transferred or sold to another entity, all personally identifiable information collected will be considered to be a part of those assets.

Your right to opt-out of e-mail received from Virginia College

If at any time you decide that you do not want to continue receiving email from Virginia College, simply follow the instructions in the email to opt-out of future mailings.

Links to other sites

Any of our Virginia College web sites may feature links to other websites that belong to or are operated by third parties. We do not necessarily endorse any of those sites nor does this privacy policy necessarily apply to them.

Security of collected information

Virginia College maintains policies and procedures to protect the privacy and confidentiality of any personally identifiable or other types of data that we collect. We take standard and acceptable precautions to keep our collection and storage systems secure and protected behind a firewall. We intend to prosecute vigorously anyone who attempts unauthorized access to or use of this information.
