Privacy Policy

The Marine Corps University Foundation (MCUF) ("we," "us" or "our") understands your concerns about privacy. We are committed to protecting the integrity and security of your personal information. To that end, we have created this Privacy Policy to provide you with notice of what information we collect on this Web site ("Site") and how such information may be used.

Please review this Privacy Policy and the Terms and Conditions from time to time, as they are subject to change without notice.

YOUR INFORMATION AND HOW OUR SITE MAKES USE OF IT

Our Site collects two kinds of information: personally identifiable information (such as your name and e-mail address) and aggregated information (such as the number of users who log on to the Site on a daily basis).

As a general policy, no personally identifiable information is automatically collected from your visit to our Site. However, there are three (3) places on our Site where we collect such personally identifiable information:

  1. Donations: If you wish to make a donation to us, you will be required to supply us with your name, amount that you wish to donate, credit card or other payment information, your e-mail address and your telephone number (for verification purposes).
  2. Newsletter Mailing List: If you wish to receive e-mail updates or mailings about The Marine Corps University Foundation you will be asked to provide your name, mailing address and/or an e-mail address.

The personally identifiable information you submit to us will only be used by us to carry out your requests and respond to your inquiries. It may also be used for internal research and marketing purposes, which may include contacting you (by e-mail or by mail) about promotions or opportunities offered by the Marine Corps University Foundation, its sponsors or affiliates, or about features of the Site. To the extent that your financial information or your telephone number is collected, it will be used only to process your request. Except as set forth herein, we do not provide your personally identifiable information (including financial information) to any third parties whatsoever.

We may aggregate information which does not personally identify you to create statistical data. Such information can include the type of browsers being used (e.g. Netscape, Internet Explorer), the operating system you are using (e.g. Windows XP / Vista, Mac OS) and the number of users that visit a specific page on the Site and the character and duration of such visits. This aggregated information will be used to help analyze site traffic and improve our services. We may also use such aggregated information to describe the Site's services to potential partners or other third parties. At no point, however, will the aggregated information identify you.

We reserve the right to disclose any personally identifiable or aggregated information if required to do so by law or if we believe that such action is necessary in order to (a) conform with the requirements of the law or to comply with legal process served on the Marine Corps University Foundation, the Site, or its users; or (c) in an emergency to protect the health and safety of the Site's users or the general public.

Our Site may contain links to other sites that are not maintained by the Marine Corps University Foundation. We have not reviewed all of the sites linked to our Site and cannot guarantee the security of your personally identifiable information on those sites. We provide these links as a convenience only and a link does not imply endorsement of, sponsorship or, or affiliation with the linked site by the Marine Corps University Foundation.

Protecting the security of all personally identifiable information associated with our users is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Once we receive your transmission, we will take reasonable precautions to endure its security on our systems. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while the Marine Corps University Foundation strives to protect its users' personally identifiable information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personally identifiable information.
