It is the policy and practice of Long Island University to collect the least amount of personally identifiable information necessary to fulfill its required duties and responsibilities, complete a particular transaction, deliver services, or as required by law. This applies to the collection of all personally identifiable information regardless of source or medium. Information provided should only be shared with members of the University community who have a need to know in order to provide services or conduct University business. The University may share personally identifiable information with other individuals or organizations that provide services to the University. The University requires these third parties to protect personally identifiable information it receives pursuant to this policy and applicable law. The University will take reasonable and appropriate measures to protect personally identifiable information from unauthorized access or disclosure.
Individuals may choose not to provide information to the University via the Internet. Most University websites may be accessed without providing personally identifiable information, however some options or special services may require the submission of personally identifiable information.
No data transmitted over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. While the University strives to protect your personal information, 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 personal information, we make every effort to ensure its security.
