Hartford Seminary is committed to protecting your privacy. This policy explains how we handle information we learn about you while you visit our site. The information that we receive depends on what you do during your visit, and what service(s) you request.
We collect two types of information: personal and demographic. Personal information is any information that you choose to submit to us and that is specific to your identification, including but not limited to your first and last name, email address and phone numbers.
Demographic information is information that cannot be associated with you personally including, but not limited to domain information, zip codes and areas of interest. We also keep track of your browsing patterns.
Use of Data
When you request information it is necessary for you to offer certain personal information about yourself so that we can serve your needs. We will not send you information unless you specifically request it, or we feel that the information would benefit your business needs. If you decide that you do not want to receive further information, simply contact us and request to be removed from the contact list. The demographic information that is collected through our site is used to evaluate how our site is used and how it can be improved. It may also be used for marketing and investment analysis.
Disclosure to Third Parties
In order to offer certain services, Hartford hires subcontractors to ease business transactions. In the event that we share your personal information with these subcontractors, they will use your personal information for the sole purpose of providing the specific service they are hired for, and they will not disclose your personal information to any third parties.
Systems that store your information are firewall protected. Access to sensitive information is restricted to authorized personnel. If we ask for any information, this information is transmitted through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, which encrypts sensitive information. Some information that is transmitted between our site and our registered users is also SSL encrypted, depending on the sensitivity of the information.
