DePaul University Privacy Statement > Privacy Statement Details
Through the Website and associated services, DePaul collects information from you when you choose to share it with us to use the Website, register with and access the Website, submit inquiries, submit comments, or otherwise share information with us through the Website and associated services.
The information we collect may include your name; contact information including your email address, physical address, and phone number; academic interests or information; information necessary to establish DePaul accounts or respond to account inquiries and requests; and other personal information that may be collected in order to conduct university operations.
For example, we may automatically collect certain non-personal information from you, such as the type of web browser and operating system you use, the name of your Internet Service Provider, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, software version, and geolocation information (for example, based on IP address or location of cellular tower used for the connection).

Please know that you are always free to block, delete, or disable cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, log files, or other technologies we may use if your browser, application or device allows. However, if you decline cookies or other similar technologies, you may not be able to take advantage of certain features or tools.

Do Not Track Signals: The Website and associated websites do not recognize browser “do-not-track” signals or similar mechanisms.
DePaul may use the information we collect from and about you for
any of the following purposes:
DePaul does not sell or otherwise disclose personally identifiable information about you, except as described here.
In the course of doing business, we employ service providers and individuals to perform a variety of functions on our behalf. These service providers may have access to your personally identifiable information if it is needed to perform their functions for us, but as a matter of course they are not authorized by DePaul to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements. These service providers are also required as a matter of course to maintain the information in confidence.
In addition, we may disclose information where we think it is necessary to investigate or prevent an actual or suspected crime or injury to ourselves or others, if required by law, or in response to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government officials.
During the normal course of our business, DePaul may sell or purchase assets. If another entity acquires, or seeks to acquire, us or any of our assets, information we have collected about you may be transferred to such entity. In addition, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, such information may be considered an asset of ours and may be sold or transferred to third parties. Should a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to require that the transferee use personally identifiable information provided through the Website in a manner that is consistent with this privacy statement.
Protecting your personal information is important to us. We maintain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to help protect against unauthorized use, disclosure, alteration, or destruction of the personally identifiable information we collect on or through the Website, products and services.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Never share your password with anyone else, notify us promptly if you believe your password security has been breached, and remember to log off of any DePaul accounts before you leave your computer.
We will not collect your personally identifiable information unless you provide it to us voluntarily. Cookies can be disabled or removed by tools that are available in most commercial browsers. The preferences for each browser you use will need to be set separately and different browsers offer different functionality and options. For more information on how you can block, delete, or disable cookies and similar technologies, please review your browser or device settings.
If we decide to change our privacy statement in a material way, we will post a notification highlighting those changes on our website.
