Information We Collect
Through the Trinity-Pawling website, we may collect the following types of information:
To communicate effectively with our website visitors and constituents, we may ask you for personally identifiable information. Requests for such information may include but are not limited to: admissions inquiries and applications, online donation forms, school store transactions, alumni contact forms, event registrations, or other form submissions. The collected information is used only to fulfill your request/submission and/or obtain payment for the product, event, or service.
Unless you take steps to browse the Internet anonymously, Trinity-Pawling School can track web browsing patterns of website visitors to better understand how our site is being used. The information we collect is based on your Internet Protocol (IP) address, and is not linked to your specific email address in any of the reports or other material compiled by the School. Your IP address is a series of numbers that identifies the location of each computer or network. Because the IP address is machine-specific, it is not, in and of itself, personally identifiable information. The information we gather may include the browser type, the date and time of the request or site behavior, average time spent on the website, pages viewed, and any inquiries that you may have made. We do not associate your IP address and web usage data with any other information held by Trinity-Pawling that can specifically identify you, unless required to do so by law.
A cookie is a small text file stored by your browser that allows the website to “remember” your preferences (such as calendar settings and site bookmarks) on the site from visit to visit, or to maintain your “logged in” status when visiting protected areas. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Web browsers have settings allowing you to reject cookies, or selectively accept cookies, or delete cookies previously accepted. Please be aware that rejecting or deleting cookies from our website may make certain functions unavailable to you.
How We Use Your Information
Trinity-Pawling’s purpose in collecting personal information is to provide relevant services and information to our users. We may use information that you provide about yourself to fulfill requests for admissions, alumni programs, school communications or news, school store purchases, parent programs, donations or gifts to the school, and/or inquiries about Trinity-Pawling School.
Like most standard website servers, Trinity-Pawling School uses Google Analytics to analyze trends in how our website is accessed and utilized. Information monitored includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, geographic location of visitors (country, city), browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, time spent on pages, and keywords used to find our site via search engines. This information is anonymous and cannot be directly linked to individual users. We may use it to identify high-use or low-use areas of the site, pinpoint problem areas of the site, analyze broad demographic trends in our visitors, and make decisions about how to make it easier for people to find and navigate our website. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with any personally identifiable information.
Trinity-Pawling School takes every precaution to protect our users' personal information. Whenever users submit personal information (such as contact information or credit card information) via online forms, registrations, or online purchases, the information is encrypted upon submission via the highest level of SSL (Secured Sockets Layer) available. Servers that store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. Under no circumstances are credit card numbers permanently stored on our website servers.
The Trinity-Pawling School website may, at times, contain links to third party sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of third party websites that collect personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by Trinity-Pawling School.
