Any time you visit a web site, you may be providing information about yourself to the site’s owner or operator. When you visit or supply information to any web site, it’s a good idea for you to first understand the site’s privacy policies. If the site owner doesn’t tell you, don’t hesitate to ask.
The bottom line at our websites (ycp.miad.edu and ycpreg.miad.edu) is that we use information that we get from your visit to enable you to participate in and take advantage of the various programs, events, and opportunities offered at MIAD, and to make our web site useful and interesting to you. We do not use the information that we collect from the site for any other purpose, nor do we share it with any affiliate or third party, except when noted explicitly at the time you provide the information.
Privacy Notice What personal information we collect and how we use it
When you visit the MIAD web site, we capture your Internet provider’s domain name (e.g., ‘aol.com’), and the IP from which you connect to the Internet. We also capture the country from where the visit came, and the paths taken as you move from page to page (i.e., your “click stream” activity).
Information we collect on the MIAD web site may be used to enhance this site in the following ways:
Arrange the web site in the most user-friendly way
Customize your browsing experience of this web site
Communicate with you about special events, classes, exhibitions, and programs
Respond to your question or suggestions
The MIAD web site only collects personal information that you choose to provide voluntarily when using miad.edu, or filling out a form. “Personal information” includes information that can identify you, such as:
Name, address, phone number, e-mail address, or company name
Social Security number or Federal Identification number
Credit card information
You are welcome to browse our site without providing personal information. The MIAD web site does include forms that allow you to request information from us, or to register for classes, programs, or events. Such a form may collect a variety of personal information. Unless you make a specific authorization (“opt-in”), this information will not be used beyond the specific purpose of the form. Some forms may require opt-in for submission.
The MIAD web site uses cookie technology as part of our web site’s statistical reporting. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a web site that is saved on your hard disk by your computer’s browser. It holds information a site may need to personalize your experience (such as, rotating images on the home page). Cookies are also used to gather web site statistical data, such as which pages are visited, what is downloaded, the Internet provider’s domain name and country of origin, and the addresses of sites visited immediately before, and after, coming to the MIAD web site.
None of this, however, is associated with you as an individual, unless you have selected to opt-in to receive further information from us. The information provided by cookies and logs is measured anonymously and only in aggregate. Information from cookies lets us trace your “click stream” activity (meaning, the paths taken by visitors to our site as they move from page to page). Cookies do not capture your individual email address or any private information about you.
If you prefer, you can configure your browser to reject all cookies, or to notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie and privacy preferences.) If cookies are disabled, certain features of the MIAD web site may not function properly.
We also use standard web server log files to help us count visitors and evaluate our site’s technical capacity. This information tells us how many people visit the MIAD web site, and helps us decide how to arrange pages in the most user-friendly way. We record information on site traffic, but not on individual visitors to our site.
Email, mailing lists, and other services
When you send us an e-mail, we use your e-mail address to thank you for your comment and/or reply to your question. We store your communication and our reply in case we correspond further. We may also contact you later as part of a satisfaction survey. Beyond these uses, we will not use your e-mail address to send you any unsolicited message or information. We also will not share it with, or sell it to, anyone else for such use, other than as specified in this policy.
When you request information or services, we will continue to provide them until you ask us to stop. You may “unsubscribe” (stop) these services by using the “unsubscribe” instructions provided on each e-mail and/or the web site where you signed up and/or as we otherwise provide), or until the information or service is no longer available.
Our policy regarding selling or renting of personal information
Our policy is simple: We do not sell or rent your personal information to any third parties under any circumstances
Choice How you can decide what communication you’ll receive from us
If you choose to receive them, we may periodically send you e-mail messages describing classes, events, or programs at MIAD. You can choose to stop receiving these emails at any time. Simply follow the instructions included in your email, or send a reply stating your request.
If you do not explicitly choose to receive informational emails, the only email messages you will receive from MIAD will be a response to an email inquiry that you send us.
Security How we protect the security of your personal information

The MIAD web site uses firewalls and Secure Socket Layers for all personal data we collect from you. We also employ many different security techniques to protect personal data against loss, misuse, alteration, and unauthorized access. We cannot, however, guarantee perfect security of your personal information.
