How is your personal information used?
Your information is used by us to provide you with services, to inform you of our new features or services you may be interested in, and to fulfill our legal and regulatory requirements. By having more information about you, we are better able to customize our services to your particular situation.

Also, if you choose to participate in voluntary surveys, webinars or user research which you may receive from time to time, any information you provide will be handled in the manner specified in connection with such survey, webinar or research.

We follow specific policies and procedures to maintain the confidentiality of your personal information. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your information from loss, theft, alteration or misuse. We also restrict access to your personal information to those of our employees with a business need to know such information. However, please be advised that even the best security measures cannot fully eliminate all risks. We cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information. We are not responsible for third-party circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures.
We do not share your personal information with unaffiliated third parties for use in marketing their products or services, and we do not sell information of Website users or users of University of Orange’s services to anyone. We may share your personal information with unaffiliated third parties in the following limited circumstances:
- We have your permission to share the information; or
- With companies who work on our behalf to provide our services to you, or to maintain or service your account (for example, with a financial institution to execute transactions; or with a mailing service company to send communications to you); or
When you interact with us by using our Website and other media forms or reading our emails, we treat personal information in accordance with all of the practices and safeguards described previously. Additionally, the following information describes our policies regarding cookies, “do not track” signals and third-party analytics.
Cookies and similar technologies
The information these technologies provide may be used for various purposes, including creating aggregate statistics, determining audience size, measuring traffic patterns, analyzing clickstreams and helping keep your session secure. If you do not wish to receive cookies, most internet browsers allow you to turn cookies off so that you do not receive them. If you do turn your cookies off, you may not be able to use some services or features and you accept responsibility for the resulting loss of functionality.
Do we honor “do not track” signals?
Some internet browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. How browsers communicate the “Do Not Track” signal is not yet uniform. For this reason, our Website does not have the ability to respond to “Do Not Track” signals.
Third party analytics
We use Google Analytics to track activity on our Website, in our emails and to engage in analysis, auditing, research, and reporting. We have enabled user ID tracking in Google Analytics which allows Google to track your activity on our Website and in our emails, however, your identity is still anonymous to Google. We may use other third-party analytics service providers, and they may set and access cookies on your device and may use similar technologies to collect information about your interaction with our Website and our emails. Tracked activities include sites or screens visited, session duration and information about the way you use our services. The information generated about your use of our Website and your interaction with our emails may be transmitted to and stored by Google Analytics or such other third-party service provider. However, we do not share personally identifiable information with Google Analytics or any other third-party analytics service provider. By using our websites or interacting with our emails, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google and any other third-party analytics service provider, as applicable, in the manner and for the purposes set forth above. Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy for Google Analytics can be found at https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites.
If you do not want any information to be collected and used by Google Analytics, you can install an opt-out in your web browser (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/)
We may use hyperlinks on the Website which will redirect you to a social network if you click on the respective link. However, if there is a social plug-in on the Website, such as Facebook’s “Like” button, Twitter’s “tweet” button or the Google+, and you click on it, that particular social network’s plugin will be activated, and your browser will directly connect to that provider’s servers. If you do not use these buttons, none of your data will be sent to the respective social network’s plugin provider. So, for example, when you click on the Facebook’s “Like” button on the Website, Facebook will receive your IP address, the browser version and screen resolution, and the operating system of the device you have used to access the Website. Settings regarding privacy protection can be found on the websites of these social networks and are not within our control.
What choices are available to you regarding email communications?
On occasion, we may use your email address to inform you of our services that we believe may be of interest to you. We may also send you service-related announcements from time to time about the services which you have requested or for which you have registered. If you do not wish to receive future communications from us, you may update your communications preferences. You can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will remove you from our email list. We do reserve the right to send you notices about services you have requested or for which you have registered, such as service announcements and administrative messages, even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
How can you change your personal information or terminate your account?
You can at any time review or change your personal information by contacting us using the contact information below.
