Information Practices

Western Dakota Technical College understands that security and privacy are important issues for visitors to their website (the “site”) and recognizes their obligations to keep your information secure and confidential. That is why WDTC maintains the following standards to help protect information that personally identifies you.

Collection of Information

Western Dakota Technical College does not collect personal information about you when you visit our site unless you choose to make such information available to us. You might be asked to voluntarily provide your name, address, phone number, email address or other personally identifiable information (“personal information”) to have access to some features of the Site. You can always refuse to provide your personal information, and this might lead to our inability to provide you with certain offerings, services or products. We or our business partners might also collect information that is anonymous, such as your IP address (a number used to identify your computer on the Internet) or the type of browser you are using (“anonymous information”), through the use of cookies or by other means. We hope that, by using Anonymous Information, we can update the site to make it more useful to you and other users. We reserve the right to maintain, update, disclose or otherwise use anonymous information, without limitation.

Use of Information

WDTC uses your personal information for the following purposes: to process your requests; to administer and improve the site and related services; to notify you of our offerings, services and products that might be of interest to you; to provide Internet security; and to meet legal requirements. WDTC might work with associated businesses which can perform certain functions on our behalf, such as sending email messages, managing data, processing credit card payments or providing services to users. These businesses have access to your personal information only to the extent necessary to perform these specific functions and cannot use it for any other purpose. We might use third-party advertising companies to place ads on the Site and to place our ads on other websites. If WDTC is involved in the sale of a substantial portion of its business assets, anonymous or personal information might be among the transferred assets.

Privacy of Children
