Sacred Heart University in Dingle is committed to respecting the privacy of all website visitors within the bounds permitted by law. This online privacy statement aims to provide clarity on:
Types of Information We Collect
There are four types of information that this site may collect during your visit:
Network traffic logs
Web visit logs
Voluntary information
Information Obtained From Cision
SHU in Dingle obtains contact details and other personal information regarding media contacts and influencers from a variety of sources, including Cision. If you wish to know more about how such information is collected and used, please refer to Cision’s privacy notice.
How We Use Information We Collect
Network Traffic Logs: In the course of ensuring network security and consistent service for all users, the University employs software programs to do such things as monitor network traffic, identify unauthorized access or access to nonpublic information, detect computer viruses and other software that might damage University computers or the network, and monitor and tune the performance of the SHU in Dingle network.
In the course of such monitoring, these programs may detect such information as email headers, addresses from network packets, and other information. Information from these activities is used only for the purpose of maintaining the security and performance of the SHU in Dingle’s networks and computer systems. Personally identifiable information from these activities is not released to external parties without your consent unless required by law.
Web Visit Logs: University web sites routinely collect and store information from online visitors to help manage those sites and improve service. This information includes the pages visited on the site, the date and time of the visit, the internet address (URL or IP address) of the referring site, the domain name and IP address from which the access occurred, the version of browser used, the capabilities of the browser, and search terms used on our search engines.
This site makes no attempt to identify individual visitors from this information. Any personally identifiable information is not released to external parties without your consent unless required by law.
Cookies: Cookies are pieces of information stored by your web browser on behalf of a Web site and returned to the Web site on request. This site may use cookies for two purposes: to carry data about your current session at the site from one web page to the next, and to identify you to the site between visits. If you prefer not to receive cookies, you may turn them off in your browser preferences, or may set your browser preferences to ask you before accepting a new cookie. Some pages may not function properly if cookies are turned off. Unless otherwise notified on this site, we will not store data, other than for these two purposes, in cookies.
Cookies remain on your computer, and accordingly we neither store cookies on our computers nor forward them to any external parties. Unless otherwise notified on this site, we do not use cookies to track your movement among different Web sites and do not exchange cookies with other entities.
Voluntary Information: In the course of using this web site, you may choose to provide us with information to help us serve your needs. For example, you may send us electronic mail (through a mailer or a web form) to request information, you may sign up for a mailing list, or you may send us your address so we may send you an application or other materials. Any personally-identifiable information you send us will be used only for the purpose indicated.
In addition to facilitating basic communication with you, the information we hold helps us enhance your experiences on our web site and the efficacy of our communications with you. For example, by holding your basic personal information, we can automatically fill out transactional forms with that data to save you time and effort.
We use personal information to communicate essential information about transactions, such as an electronic receipt for a tuition payment or a confirmation for an event registration.
We also use it to inform you about SHU in Dingle events, programs, and services of potential interest, unless you have opted out of such communications.
How We Share Information We Collect
We will not sell, exchange, or otherwise distribute your personally-identifiable information without your consent, except to the extent required by law. We do not retain the information longer than necessary for normal operations.
Each web page requesting information discloses the purpose of that information. If you do not wish to have the information used in that manner, you are not required to provide it. Please refer to the contact information listed below with any questions or concerns on the use of personally-identifiable information.
How We Store and Secure Information We Collect
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
The personal information we collect is stored in databases and files that are protected by passwords and firewalls. In addition, online forms used for financial transactions are secured with SSL encryption technology to ensure the safety of sensitive information transmitted through them (e.g., credit card information). When credit card information is stored, it is done so only in an encrypted format.
While we implement safeguards designed to protect your information, no security system is 100% safe. Due to the inherent nature of the internet, we cannot guarantee that data, during transmission through the internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, is absolutely safe from intrusion by others. We will respond to requests about this within a reasonable timeframe.
How to Access and Control your Information
You have the right to request a copy of your information, to object to our use of your information (including for marketing purposes), to request the correction, deletion or restriction of your information, or to request your information in a structured, electronic format.
Please forward your requests to shuindingle@sacredheart.edu
How We Transfer Information We Collect Internationally
We collect information globally and primarily store that information in the United States. We transfer, process, and store your information outside of your country of residence, to wherever we, SHU in Dingle, or our third-party service providers operate. Whenever we transfer your information, we take steps to protect it.

GDPR: Additional Privacy Considerations
As of May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is in effect. The GDPR requires a valid legal basis for processing personal data. In certain countries, there are specific legal bases that we rely on to use personal information, including contract performance, legitimate analysis, improvements, and administration, legal obligation, and consent.
SHU in Dingle takes seriously the protection of personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. However, no one can guarantee the absolute certainty of complete security regarding transmission of information over the Internet or storage of data.
Your personal information will be retained as needed in order to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. This includes the retention and use of personal information to comply with our business and legal obligations, enforce our agreements, and resolve disputes if and when they arise.
The SHU in Dingle Privacy Policy does not apply to third-party websites or services. Links on the SHU in Dingle website may direct you to other websites and services, and we are not responsible for their security practices, policies, privacy, or content.
