About IU East

Indiana University East respects your privacy. We do collect some information regarding your use of our website (see Google Analytics, below) but do not share any personally identifying information (Name, E-Mail, address, etc.) with parties outside of the University without your consent.

What does IU East collect from forms I fill out online?

CASSome of our web content involves the use of forms. These forms are used for registration, obvious data collection (voting, opinion responses, blog comments, etc.), and also, rarely, we will process data to pass it off to a third party (ie. Flickr).

In addition to the form fields you complete, we will also often collect your IU Username (if you were prompted for a "Central Authentication Service" login) and / or IP address, as well as the date/time the form was submitted. This data is strictly for internal purposes only, and is used either for identification (in the case of blog comments, opinion responses, and registration) or to ensure that your submission is unique (in the case of voting).

For your own security, please be sure that you completely close you browser when you are finished, especially if you logged in through Central Authentication Service.

What about Google Analytics?

‘This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google").  Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including possibly your IP address, 54.234.82.216) will be transmitted to and stored by Google.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.  Google may also transfer this information to third parties when required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.  You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser.  By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

How can I protect my Privacy?

When it's not being voluntarily submitted through a form, private data is frequently collected through the use of embedded JavaScript. Some modern web browsers will allow you to disable JavaScript in their preferences / configuration settings. If you use Firefox, you may find the NoScript Firefox Extension useful - it will block the use of any JavaScript code without your consent. This provides an extra layer of personal security at the cost of limited functionality on many websites, including this one.
