Hampshire College Digital Privacy Statement
Hampshire College values individuals’ privacy and is committed to protecting and keeping secure user information obtained through the College’s websites. This statement explains how the information is gathered and used.
Cookies may be disabled by adjusting the setting of your browser, or by installing tools like Google's Opt-out Browser Add-on, but this may impede the full functionality of the website making the user experience less engaging.
Some Hampshire-owned and -affiliated websites use Google Analytics and other tools to track data such as IP address, language, geo-location, browser type, and operating system. Some user information is collected and shared as hashed data in a privacy-friendly way with third-parties, such as Google.
All information is collected solely for the College's use. We use it to track and evaluate traffic trends so that we can continually improve the quality our website. We also might use this information to inform you of changes to Hampshire-owned and -affiliated websites or to provide you with other news and information about the site that we believe may be of interest to you.
Google Analytics also collects visitation data and associates it with Google information from accounts of signed-in users who have consented to this association for the purpose of advertisement personalization, Google Signals, and detailed device and location data. This sharing is to measure the performance of advertisements issued by Hampshire College.
User information is neither shared nor sold to unaffiliated third parties for commercial use unless 1) you give us express consent; or 2) we are required to disclose it in compliance with state or federal laws.
For the convenience of our users, our websites may provide links to other websites owned by third parties. Please note that Hampshire College is not responsible for any of the privacy policies of those websites. We advise that you read their policies for further information.
