Privacy Policy

We respect and are committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to our website. For this reason, we have adopted this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy will inform you on how your personal information is processed and used by Spring Arbor University.

What Information We Collect and How It Is Used

Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers that serve as that computer’s Internet Protocol Address (IP Address). When a visitor requests a page or file from the SAU website, our servers automatically recognize that visitor’s domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in website analytics software applications. We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals. Our servers do not automatically record the email addresses of our website visitors.

When a visitor accesses and completes our online admissions application forms and online contact us forms, this data is collected and transmitted securely across the internet and housed in our administrative database for processing. We will never share, sell, or rent individual personal information unless ordered by a court of law. Information submitted to us is only available to employees managing this information for purposes of contacting you or sending you emails based on your request for information or for processing online applications submitted via our website.
