PRIVACY POLICY:


Introduction

This Continuing Education and Community Engagement (CECE) Privacy Statement provides information about CECE’s online information gathering and dissemination practices. Individual pages on CECE websites may provide additional information.

In addition to the information in this Privacy Statement, we also abide by The University of Utah's official Privacy Policy. You can read about the policy on this page.

If you are in the European Union, please also review the University of Utah’s EU General Data Protection Regulation information on this page. These EU Supplemental Privacy Provisions provide additional information regarding CECE’s processing of personal data you submit or disclose to CECE (or to a third party that transfers it to CECE for processing) while you are in the European Union.

We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Statement, as well as any information linked from this Privacy Statement, as we may update it without notice.

What Services CECE Provides Online

CECE’s websites provide online information and services to all users of CECE’s online sites consistent with CECE’s Mission and Values.

In addition to information and services provided on CECE websites, CECE may also provide connections to external services and information provided by non-CECE service providers. Non-CECE service providers have their own privacy policies that are not covered by this Privacy Statement. CECE is not responsible for the privacy practices or policies of non-CECE service providers. We recommend you review the privacy practices and policies of all non-CECE service providers.

ADA/EEO Accessibility Policy

The University of Utah seeks to provide equal access to its programs, services, and activities for people with disabilities. Reasonable prior notice is needed to arrange accommodations. Please call 801-585-1780 to be connected to the Continuing Education unit responsible for your class, or contact the University's Center for Disability Services at disability.utah.edu or 801-581-5020.

Information CECE Collects from Users and How We Use it

CECE collects information actively provided by Users, such as your name, address, phone number and other personally identifying information needed to complete registration and enrollment. We may also collect information about the computers, mobile devices, or other devices you use to access CECE’s websites, such as IP address, unique device identifiers, browser types, browser languages, web pages requested, website software access, referring web pages, date, time, and duration of activity, passwords, and accounts accessed, and locations of User devices when connected to CECE’s websites. Logs of this information may be retained. We may contract with non-CECE service providers to help us better understand Users. These non-CECE service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our services.

CECE uses information collected to provide services, in support of CECE’s Mission, to protect the security of CECE’s websites, as well as monitor, preserve, and enhance the use, functioning, and integrity of CECE’s websites. CECE may also use information collected from you for analysis and statistical.

Cookies

Cookies are small files that are stored on your computing devices. We use cookies to understand and save your preferences for future visits and compile aggregate data about website traffic and website interaction so that we can offer better website experiences and tools in the future. Cookies may be set by organizations other than CECE. Because the cookie policies of these third party service providers may change over time, you should review their policies by visiting their privacy policies directly. We also use targeting and advertising cookies, which may be set by CECE or by third parties. Users may disable cookies through their individual browser options. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our websites and you may receive advertising and materials of little potential interest to you.

The following describes the types of cookies CECE uses on our websites:


Required or Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential for our websites to operate correctly and to provide you with requested services. For example, we use cookies to authenticate you, so when you log on to CECE websites, we know who you are.

Functionality Cookies.

We use functionality cookies to enhance website features, such as videos and live chat, and for personalization, such as storing your preferences (e.g. username and language selection). Functionality cookies may be set by CECE or by third parties whose services we have added to our websites. If you do not allow these cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our websites, and some website functions may not work properly.

Social Media Cookies.

Social media cookies may be set by third parties such as YouTube and Facebook to collect information about your social media usage.

Analytics Cookies.

Analytics cookies collect information about your use of our website, and help us improve the way it works. For example, analytics cookies identify the most frequently visited pages, record any difficulties you have, and show whether our advertising is effective. This allows us to see the overall patterns of usage on the Sites, rather than the usage of a single person. We use the information to analyze the Sites' traffic.

Targeting/Advertising Cookies.

We use targeting/advertising cookies to create profiles and personalize content. We may use third party products, such as Google Analytics, to market CECE’s services to you on third party websites. For example, if you visit CECE websites, you may then see advertisements for CECE on other websites.

You can learn more about cookies and their functions by visiting an information website such as allaboutcookies.org.

Do Not Track Signals.

Some web browsers (such as Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) have a "Do Not Track" (DNT) feature that tells websites that users do not want to have their online activity tracked. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, CECE does not respond to DNT signals.

Protecting Children's Privacy

All Continuing Education websites have been designed to be informative, accessible, and safe for kids of all ages, and to adhere to all applicable laws and regulations. Children are encouraged to browse our various web pages with their parents in order to find age-appropriate classes.

Our site is not intended for children under 13 to self-register for classes or other activities. Parents or guardians are required to register for any students under age 13. As stated above, all registration information (submitted by parent/guardian) resides on secure servers, and never sold, rented, or shared with any outside organization or entity.

For more on children's privacy rights, read about the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act at the FTC's website.

EU General Data Protection Regulation

Please be aware of the University’s GDPR Privacy Notice that supplements this Privacy Statement. The GDPR Privacy Notice applies generally to the provision of personal information by individuals in the European Economic Area. The GDPR Privacy Notice explains how we meet our obligations under the European Union General Data Protection Regulation with respect to such information. The GDPR Privacy Notice can be found at https://www.utah.edu/privacy/gdpr.php.

Alternatives to Website Transactions

If you prefer not to provide information to CECE through our websites, you may contact CECE to learn about available options.

Disclosure of Information

CECE does not disclose confidential information we collect online to individuals or entities not affiliated with CECE, except in the limited circumstances described below. Non-confidential information may be disclosed or distributed pursuant to federal laws, state laws, and the University of Utah’s additional policies as mentioned in their Privacy Policies.

Court Order or Public Safety.

CECE may be required to disclose confidential information pursuant to a valid court order or lawfully issued and served subpoena, search warrant, or other legal order. In addition, CECE may disclose confidential information to law enforcement if CECE believes that disclosure is necessary to protect CECE, to protect the health or safety of individuals, or if law enforcement believes that CECE’s resources have been used in the commission of a crime.

Contractors

CECE may contract with non-CECE service providers to provide services and information through CECE’s websites. CECE may provide information, including personal information collected on our websites; to non-CECE service providers to assist CECE deliver classes, programs, products, information, and services. CECE also contracts with non-CECE service providers to perform analysis, research, and administrative activities for CECE. CECE requires non-CECE service providers to protect personal information on our behalf.

Security

CECE takes steps to ensure that confidential information collected online is secure. These steps include: ongoing User education; using tools in an effort to restrict unauthorized access, viruses, phishing, and hacking attempts; and monitoring activity to identify potential system threats. CECE routinely assesses and enhances tools and processes available to strengthen our online security.
