The Hewden Catalogue may share your personal data with its third-party service providers to provide services or to support the Hewden Catalogue’s activities. These activities include, for example, online course support for students, benefit services for faculty and staff, or study abroad and international educational or teaching opportunities. The Hewden Catalogue’s third-party service providers are not authorized to disclose personal data except as necessary to perform services on the Hewden Catalogue’s behalf or to comply with legal requirements. In certain instances, in order to provide services and to support Hewden Catalogue’s activities, or as required by law, the Hewden Catalogue may share your personal data among other departments. In all of these instances, the information provided to the third-party service provider or other department will be limited to the extent necessary to provide the user-requested information and/or services, or as required by applicable law enforcement agencies.

Third-Party Websites and Content

Hewden Catalogue websites may contain links to other websites as a convenience to you. These websites typically operate independently from the Hewden Catalogue’s websites and if you decide to use these links, you will leave the Hewden Catalogue’s website. The Hewden Catalogue is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other websites and does not make any representations or endorsements about them. If you decide to leave the Hewden Catalogue’s website and access any third-party website, we strongly suggest you review the privacy notices or policies of that third-party website, as the Hewden Catalogue’s policies will no longer govern. You should review the applicable terms and policies, including privacy and information gathering practices, of these third-party sites.

Your Personal Accounts

Although the Hewden Catalogue has security measures in place to protect personal data you provide to it, you are encouraged to take steps on your own to protect your information by, for example, logging out of online applications, closing all web browsers after use of a website, and keeping your account and passwords confidential. You should be aware that any information you post or disclose in news groups, forums, message boards, and similar contexts may become public. You should always exercise caution before disclosing any personal data or other information in such contexts.

Retention of Information and Security

Personal data you provide to the Hewden Catalogue will be retained in accordance with the Hewden Catalogue’s record retention schedule, applicable laws, or until such time the service requested is no longer available. The Hewden Catalogue maintains administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect against loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction of the information you provide when visiting or using Hewden Catalogue websites. The Hewden Catalogue implements appropriate security measures to promote the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of any information in the possession (or control) of the Hewden Catalogue. The Hewden Catalogue utilizes Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption technology for instances where Hewden Catalogue websites process your personal information. The purpose of TLS is to protect your information from being viewed by an unauthorized person. Additionally, some features on Hewden Catalogue websites may enable credit card transactions in order for you to purchase goods and services. Hewden Catalogue subcontracts the processing of online transactions to third-party services providers that comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

The Hewden Catalogue may modify this Privacy Notice from time to time, in its sole discretion. We recommend you read the Notice periodically. If we make any significant changes to this Privacy Notice that increase the Hewden Catalogue’s rights to use personal information that we previously collected about you, we will obtain your consent through an email to your registered email address or by prominent posting on the Hewden Catalogue’s websites. If the Hewden Catalogue intends to further process collected personal information for a purpose other than that for which the information was collected, prior to that further processing, the Hewden Catalogue shall provide you with information on that other purpose with additional information necessary to ensure fair and transparent processing.
