Which information we collect and how we use that information
Our registration and forms require users to provide us with contact information that may include name, email address, physical address, interests, and similar identifiers. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or social security numbers.
Your personal information will be used to provide you with information about Chicago Booth’s activities. Your personal information may also be shared with other Chicago Booth departments and vendors for non-commercial university-related activities.
Your Chicago Booth experiences, additional education information, and personal information such as address, telephone, email, spouse, and children may be included in Chicago Booth’s community directories. These directories are made available to other alumni, students, faculty, and staff to facilitate contact amongst members of the community.
When you choose to join programs such as an event, club, or volunteer activities that are open to broader audiences, your contact information may be made available to participants in that program, with the goal of facilitating contact amongst those participants.
Your personal information will only be used for commercial or philanthropic purposes directly connected to or approved by Chicago Booth. Unless we are required by law, or under a contract with a vendor to perform legitimate Chicago Booth business, your personal information will not be given, lent, or sold to any other individual or organization.
We are proud of our alumni and will publish alumni name, photo, and degree information (year, school, field of concentration, and dissertation title) from time to time.
Internet Protocol Address
We collect an IP address from all visitors to our Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our site, analyze trends, track users' movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Use of "Cookies"
All information provided to Chicago Booth is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that allows your browser to automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our Site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of Chicago Booth. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the internet is 100 percent secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
If a user elects to use our referral services (social share, tell a friend, etc.) to inform others about our Site, we may ask for the friend's name and email address. Chicago Booth will automatically send the friend a one-time message inviting him or her to visit the Site. Chicago Booth stores this information for the sole purpose of executing this one-time email.
Our Site contains links to other websites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another website for which Chicago Booth has no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements on all such sites as their policies may be different than ours.
