We are providing this policy below so that you may understand the terms and conditions associated with the provision of any personal information to us. Please note, however, that this policy has been developed and continue to develop and evolve rapidly, and that such changes may require us to alter our Privacy Policy.

General Statement

You may visit our website without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. However, certain transactions that you choose to engage in on this site will require your submission of personal information, including, but not limited to, news feed requests, and mailing lists, applications and certain databases. As a general rule, NextGenInnov8 will not sell, swap, rent, or otherwise disclose to any third party any such personal information for commercial purposes. Such information will be utilized only for the purpose stated. To accomplish such purpose, NextGenInnov8 may disclose the information to its employees, consultants and agents (including, for purposes of the application process, interviews) who have a legitimate need to know the information. NextGenInnov8 also reserves the right to disclose this information under special circumstances, including disclosures required by law, court order or circumstances under which disclosure, in the sole discretion of NextGenInnov8, is necessary to protect the legal rights, including the intellectual property rights, of NextGenInnov8.

Anonymous Information

Anonymous information concerning the browsing habits of our visitors is collected to inform future design decisions that enhance the user experience. This anonymous user information is collected through third-party vendors, including Google, that specialize in website analytics.

Personal Information Collected and Use of Information

Any personal or contact information voluntarily shared by users through online forms is protected through internal processes and is never sold to third parties. During regular operations, we do store some contact information in third-party service providers that we use regularly for communications purposes.

Usage Information Collected and Use of Information

NextGenInnov8 may collect other information about its users that is not connected with any specific personal identity, such as data about usage and service operation. The following summarizes the types of information that we may collect

System Information, IP Addresses and Referrers

When you connect to our website, our web server may record the numerical Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using, information about your browser and operating system, date and time of access and the internet address and page which linked you to our site. The Colleges staff uses such information to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer and improve our website and to generate aggregate statistical reports that analyze general user information and demographics. Unless required by legal process, we do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that user sessions may be tracked by IP address, but a users identity remains anonymous.

In addition, we ordinarily do not disclose to third parties site usage by individual IP addresses, but may do so in very limited circumstances when complying with law or legal process, working with consultants assisting us in fixing or improving our site, or in monitoring and improving the security of our network. Our staff monitors search terms that users enter into our Search Engine, but this tracking is never associated with individual users.

Cookies

We track our website traffic through the Google Analytics platform. We, and third-party vendors including Google, use cookies stored on your computer to report how interactions with advertising and advertising services are related to our website traffic.

Security Precautions

This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Unfortunately, due to the nature of Internet communications, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secured. While NextGenInnov8 remains committed to protecting the privacy of our users, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. We do so by using secure technology, privacy protection controls, and restrictions on employee access, however, we make no representations regarding the veracity of such measures.
