Thank you for visiting our website! Higher Ed Live is committed to protecting your privacy. Use of the website is subject to applicable federal and state laws.
The following is an overview of the information we collect while you’re visiting our website, how we use it, and how to contact us for more information.
Information We Collect
- Personal Information:We collect information that can be used to identify you as an individual (“Personally Identifiable Information,” or PII) only when you provide this information directly to us, such as voluntarily submitting a form or signing up for an email list. You do not have to provide any PII to use our website; however you may not be able to access all information. We require users to submit an email address before viewing free broadcasts in order to better understand viewing habits. Email addresses are occasionally shared with the sponsor of free broadcasts in order to keep all content on HigherEdLive.com free to viewers. Occasionally, Higher Ed Live or our network sponsors may contact you to provide further information — you can change your email settings or unsubscribe and continue to enjoy Higher Ed Live’s free content. If you submit a form on our website, we may store the information we collect through that form. We may also collect information through your voluntary interaction with any of our public forums, including our social media platforms. After PII is used for internal marketing purposes, this information is discarded.
- Google Analytics: Higher Ed Live uses a variety of tools through Google Analytics to gather information about the device you use to access our web pages and how you use our website, such as your IP address, geographical location, length of visit, and pages viewed. We use this information to better understand how our website is used and to make improvements to the user experience. We will never (and will not allow any third party to) use Google Analytics to track or to collect any PII of visitors to our website. Google offers an opt-out browser add-on to provide visitors the ability to prevent Google Analytics from using their data.
How We Use Your Information
- Restricted Usage: The unauthorized usage of all Higher Ed Live copyrights, trademarks, and logos is strictly prohibited.
- Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA): Please be advised that any time a user enters information, Higher Ed Live will assume that the user is 13 or older.
- Confidentiality: When you view a sponsored broadcast, we may share your email address with the broadcast’s sponsor. This allows us to keep all content on the site free to viewers.
- Communications: We may use PII you provide to us to communicate with you about our programs, events, and other news at Higher Ed Live.
- Advertising: Our advertising partners may show you Higher Ed Live ads on other websites based on your previous interaction with us (remarketing). A list of our advertising partners is available upon request. If you’d like to opt out of remarketing, please visit Google’s Ad Settings.
