Cornell University Cooperative Extension (CCE) is committed to respecting users of our website. For that purpose, this policy has been adopted to address the collection and use of information from the CCE Distance Learning site. To maintain effective privacy practices, CCE retains the right to update this policy without notice.
CCE collects two types of information from users: information provided by the user to receive requested information and/or services, and information passively collected upon a user’s visit to our website.
Passively Collected Information
Information that is collected will be retained for an unlimited period of time or until a right of erasure request is issued. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for all questions regarding the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Please note that electronic communication is not guaranteed to be secure against interception and do not send confidential data by email or web form.
Information Provided by the User
Users may provide CCE with non-personally and personally identifiable information to utilize certain services and retrieve information. Such instances may not be noticeable to the user and include, but are not limited to: filling out surveys, completing registration information, and submitting certain online forms.
Use of Information
CCE uses information collected solely for internal purposes, such as part of enrollment in online courses or to see what pages are most frequently visited, to improve our website. We do not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others. We may share your information across departments within CCE or within Cornell University, as appropriate. We may release account information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to:
- comply with law
- enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements or
- protect the rights, property or safety of CCE, any department or office affiliated with CCE, Cornell University, our users, or others.
Our website contains links to other websites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another website for which CCE has no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements on all such sites as their policies may be different than ours.
