Privacy and Security
In order to reduce the risk of privacy invasion, it is wise to eliminate personal information you do not wish to share with others from your webpages. Examples include personal (as opposed to departmental) phone numbers, addresses, and "uncloaked" email addresses.
Alfred University does not collect or store sensitive data on its servers. Directory information is the only kind of information that can be collected or displayed on webpages or forms. Directory information is information such as name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance, etc.
Alfred University computer users can expect reasonable confidentiality in the messages they receive and the files they create. While the University does not routinely monitor an individual's computer use, routinely examine files or review any content on webpages accessible through the University's website, the University is responsible for responding to alleged abuses and has the right to investigate suspected offenses, to suspend or revoke computing privileges, or to remove or deny access to any content it deems objectionable or illegal.
