We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site by identifying (1) which parts of our site are most heavily used, and (2) which portion of our audience comes from within the Notre Dame College network. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that user sessions will be tracked, but the users will remain anonymous.
We occasionally monitor search terms that users enter into the Notre Dame College Search Engine, but this tracking is never associated with individual users.
The admissions portions of our site use voluntary information request forms and interview, tour, and event registration forms to coordinate Notre Dame College’s student recruitment efforts. The Office of Admission collects visitors’ personal and demographic information (like name, citizenship, and mailing address). This information is used to send admission and financial aid materials about Notre Dame College to prospective students and their friends and families, to track potential interest in Notre Dame College as an educational institution, and to assist in the overall college matriculation process.
The Notre Dame College Alumni and Friends site uses voluntary alumni record update forms to coordinate Notre Dame College’s alumni relations efforts. The Alumni Relations Office collects visitors’ personal and demographic information (like name, race/ethnicity, occupation, and mailing address) and unique identifiers (like social security number). The information is used to send materials about Notre Dame College to alumni and benefactors, and to facilitate alumni recordkeeping and fundraising programs.
