The Vermont State Colleges (VSC) are committed to preserving and maintaining the privacy of visitors to VSC web sites. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for the VSC (https://www.vsc.edu/web-privacy-statement/) web sites. By visiting any of the VSC web sites, you are accepting the practices described in this statement.
We use your Internet domain and the Internet address of the computer you are using, the type of browser and operating system you are using, and the date and time of access to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our web sites. We identify which parts of our sites are most heavily used, and which portion of our audience comes from within and outside of the VSC network. We do not link your computer internet address to anything personally identifiable. This means that user sessions may be tracked, but the users will remain anonymous.
We use third-party service providers to serve our ads across the internet. As you browse our website, advertising cookies will be placed on your computer so that we can understand what you are interested in. This enables us to present you with retargeting advertising on other sites based on your previous interaction with our website. The techniques our partners employ do not collect personal information such as your name, email address, postal address, or telephone number. If you would like to opt out of targeted advertising from VTC, click here.
Other information is collected only if you choose to send it. For example you may complete an online form, make an online purchase, or send an e-mail.
Use of information
As noted above, the VSC uses the information we collect to tailor site content to user needs, to generate aggregate statistical reports, to help diagnose problems and otherwise to administer our web sites. At no time do we disclose site usage by individual computer internet address.
Information you choose to send on our sites is used to complete transactions (such as registering for a course or sending an e-mail).
The VSC may employ independent contractors to help manage web-based services, and such contractors may have access to data similar to the access we give our employees. In such instances, we take precautions to protect against re-disclosure of personal information.
This site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of the information under our control.
