Collection of Data.

Our registration process requires only a valid e-mail address and a password. Please take note that your user name, e-mail address, or other submissions that you make on this site may contain your real name or other personally identifiable information and, as a result, may appear on this site. Like many web sites, we may also automatically receive general information that is contained in our server log files such as your IP address and cookie information.

Collecting your Personal Information

We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you are asked to register before attending an event, subscribing to email newsletters, completing an online survey, joining a limited-access portion of our site, viewing your own personal resource information, or when requesting information about other members of Cold Spring School's community. If you are already affiliated with Cold Spring School - either as an alumni, or as a parent, friend, or trustee, we have contact information for you on file. If you elect to join our community by making a gift/donation or simply by registering as a user on the portal section of the site, we will ask for some personal information.
