Cookies

A "cookie" is a small data file that is written to your hard drive that contains information about your visit to a web page. University websites may use cookies to store information about your actions or choices on pages associated with those websites, in order to customize the information and services that the sites offer you. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site; however some functionality may be restricted.

Technical Information

When you access any website from the Internet, your computer automatically provides its Internet Protocol ("IP") address to the computer hosting that website, as is the case when you attach to any Internet-connected computer.  This is so that the computer knows where to send the requested information.  Information about browser types is also provided automatically. 

We use this information in aggregate form in order to help diagnose problems with our computer systems, to help us understand our visitors' needs related to our website design, plan the use of system capacity and improve the quality of the information and services available to you on our websites.  We do not access this information in a way that identifies any individual person.

Affinity Partners

You may also receive offers from our "affinity partners." An affinity program is an agreement between the University and a business partner to offer discounted services to our alumni in areas such as travel, investment, insurance or credit cards. In addition to discounts for alumni, these affinity partners give a portion of their business back to Cal State fullerton. This in turn supports numerous areas of the university such as student scholarships, academic programs, facilities, athletics and alumni programs. These types of partnerships also provide sponsorship opportunities for other university events and programs.

In order to provide you with access to and information about the benefits and discounts of the various affinity opportunities, your information is shared with only the selected partners of the utmost quality and integrity. A privacy contract is signed and they are not allowed to share your data with any other entity. In many cases, a third-party mail house is used and the affinity partner only has your information if you respond to them.

You have the right to restrict the sharing of your name, address and electronic mail address with our affinity partners. If you wish to opt out of the affinity partner program, you may do so by clicking here for our online form, by sending an e-mail to alumniprivacy@fullerton.edu, by printing and faxing this PDF form, or by calling (888) 895-3855.

We do not partner with or have special relationships with any ad server companies.

Disclosure of Your Information to You

Upon request we provide site visitors with access to any information that we maintain about them. Users can access this information by emailing us at the above address, or writing to us at the below address. Phone requests will not be granted; we will verify the identity of those who request information before we release it. Users can have this information corrected by sending us email at the above address, calling us at the above telephone number, or writing to us at the above address.

Security

With respect to security: we always use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving user data exchanged with our site. When we transfer and receive certain types of sensitive information such as financial information or SSN, we redirect visitors to a secure server and encrypt the resulting email. We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site.

Limiting Employee Access to Information

We have procedures that limit employee access to personally identifiable information to those employees with a business reason to know such information about you.  We educate our employees about the importance of confidentiality and privacy through standard operating procedures, special training programs and policies on ethics. 

Maintenance of the Online Privacy Statement

Because Internet technologies continue to evolve rapidly, we may make appropriate changes to the statement in the future.  Any changes will be consistent with the University's commitment to respecting visitor privacy and will be clearly posted in a revised Online Privacy Statement.
