Horizon University is committed to the privacy of your information while you access and use this site. This policy statement is intended to explain why we collect information and how that information is used and disclosed. Individual websites providing contracted products or services to Horizon University that are accessible through this website may post additional privacy statements addressing more specific information collected on those pages.
Information We Collect
Horizon University collects both personally identifiable information (PII) and non-personally identifiable information (non-PII) from it’s visitors to this site.
PII such as name, email, address, etc. is collected when a user voluntarily fills out any online forms including request for information, registration or application. PII is collected for processing payments and donations through approved third-party service providers solely for the purpose of performing services on behalf of Horizon University.
The university does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children (defined herein as minors younger than thirteen years of age).
As users access the website, Horizon University collects non-PII through session “cookies”. Non-PII collected includes IP address, browser type, operating system, domain name from which you accessed the internet, and site usage. This information is not linked to any personal information and remains anonymous.
Use of Information We Collect
By providing personally identifiable information, you imply consent to the collection and use of the information for the purposes for which it was provided. Your information is used to provide relevant materials, products and services you request, and to facilitate relationships with the University, such as the admissions process, alumni relations and fund raising programs.
Only those Horizon University personnel who need personally identifiable information to perform a specific job are given access to the information. Unless required by law, PII is only shared with third parties as necessary to provide the materials, products, and services you request. When third parties are given access to PII, they are, by contract, not permitted to use or re-disclose any of the information for unauthorized purposes. Personally identifiable information is never sold to third parties.
You may opt out of receiving information from Horizon University by contacting the department from which the information came or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject “Opt-Out” and a brief explanation of University information and/or communications you request not to receive.
In general, Horizon University uses this information while you are browsing the site to improve the service and your individual experience. We also aggregate information from many users into statistical reports in order to better administer our website, diagnose server problems that may occur from time to time, and improve our website.
Horizon University implements security measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. All information gathered through this site is accessible only to authorized University personnel. We further protect your information from potential security breaches by implementing certain technology security measures including encryption, firewalls and secure socket layer technology. However, as effective as any security measures implemented by the University may be, no security system is impenetrable. Horizon University cannot guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software or that the information you provide will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet.
