Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy (Effective June 17, 2016)

The Wisconsin Technical College System Foundation and its WIDS Division are committed to respecting and maintaining the privacy of all users who visit our websites. We collect no personal information about you except to the extent you share it with us for a specific purpose like completing an order form in the shopping cart.  We do not  share, sell, or transfer personal information with/to third parties.

We use Google Analytics to determine how our site is being used and to help make our site more useful to visitors.  This involves collecting information that is not personal or personally identifiable about visits to our websites.

COOKIES.  Some pages in our websites use "cookies" to help you use our web sites, for example, to access content that requires a login.  A cookie is a string of data our system sends to your computer to help us interact with you efficiently when you use our site.   

The cookies on our pages collect information only about your “browser session,” and do not collect personal information about you.  Cookies make it easier for you to use the dynamic features of these webpages without having to provide the same information repeatedly as you move from one page to another or return to our websites.

To protect your privacy, be sure to close your browser completely after you have finished conducting business with any website that uses cookies. If you are concerned about the potential use of information gathered from your computer by cookies, you can set your browser to prompt you before it accepts a cookie. Most internet browsers have settings that let you identify and/or reject cookies.

INFORMATION FROM E-MAIL YOU SEND TO US. If you decide to send us an electronic mail message (e-mail), the message will usually contain your return e-mail address. If you include personally identifying information in your e-mail because you want us to address issues specific to your situation, we may use that information in responding to your request. In limited circumstances, we may be required by law to disclose information that you submit. In addition, e-mail is not necessarily secure against interception. Please send only information necessary to help us process your request.

INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM INTERACTIVE FORMS. When you register on our websites, we offer a form that lets you voluntarily submit personal information (such as your e-mail address, name, or organization). In this case, all submitted information is used only for the expressed purposes for which it is intended and is not made available to any third party. If you download content that requires a login or register for demo software, we may contact you via email regarding other related information that is of interest to you. Our emails include an “opt-out” function. 

LINKS TO OTHER SITES. This policy applies only to our own (WTCS Foundation and WIDS) websites and not to any website that may be linked to our websites or to which you may be referred by our websites.

CHANGES TO THIS POLICY.  We may change this privacy policy at any time by posting a new version on this page or successor page.  The new version will become effective on the date it’s posted, which is listed above.

GDPR. We comply with the EU’s GDPR. Completion of  forms on this website confers your consent to process the information you have submitted and to receive occasional emails on curriculum topics.  We do not sell your information to third parties.
