We do not collect any personally identifiable information from users. If you decide to purchase merchandise, we will not sell or rent your personal information. (see below for more details)
Cuesta College Bookstore has established this policy and is providing it to you so that you can understand the manner in which we use your information and the efforts we use to protect it. We at Cuesta College Bookstore are committed to protecting your online privacy.
We recognize the need for consumers to control the use and management of personal information. By personal information we mean information that can be used to identify or contact an individual. This includes a first and last name, a physical address, an email address, or a phone number. In most cases, you can visit Cuesta College Bookstore's web pages without providing us with this type of information. (Exceptions to this are when you make a purchase, or submit a request that requires us to contact you.) If you do choose to provide us with personal information, we may transfer that information to agents or employees of our bookstore partners and/or third-party service providers. We will only transfer the information to the extent necessary to provide the requested information, service, or product to you. We do not sell or trade your personal information to unrelated third parties and we do not utilize email marketing.
Please note that our service provider, CampusHub, uses various technologies to collect information about types and versions of internet browsers used when accessing their servers. This information, and information about internet IP addresses, as well as date and time web pages are visited are stored in various security and traffic logs. CampusHub reviews these logs, using statistical analysis, in an effort to track and predict traffic patterns and estimate resource needs. Unless asked to identify technical problems or we suspect either fraudulent behavior or illegal conduct, specific user sessions are not traced.
Cuesta College Bookstore serves college students and as such is not meant to attract children. We do not intend to collect personal information from anyone we know to be under 13 years of age.
Security and Confidentiality
Our service provider, CampusHub, takes reasonable steps to ensure that your Personal Information is protected. When collecting and transferring your data, industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption is used. Within the CampusHub data center, multiple levels of redundant firewalls are used as well as database encryption. Internally, access to your Personal Information is limited to those employees or agents who we believe have reasonable need to use the information to provide products or services to you, or to perform their jobs. CampusHub is a Versign Premier Partner utilizing Versign SSL certificates where SSL is required.
How to Tell It's Secure?
There are a couple of ways to tell if the information you are receiving is coming from a secure server.
1. Check the security icon. Most browsers use a key (Netscape Navigator) or padlock (Microsoft Internet Explorer). An unbroken emblem indicates a secure browser.
2. Check the URL field of your browser. With an unsecured server the address will begin with http:// instead of the usual https://.
We partner with other third parties to provide various services and products. When a customer uses these services or products we may share Personal Information that is necessary for the third party to provide the product or service to the consumer. Reasonable steps will be taken to only provide Personal Information to third parties when necessary and to ensure that these third parties are obligated to protect Personal Information on our service provider's behalf (Campus Hub). It is also against our policy to sell or trade Personal Information collected online, without consumer consent. Note that, unless legally required to do otherwise, our service provider does not intend to transfer Personal Information to third parties that are not bound to act on CampusHubs behalf. If legally compelled to release Personal Information to a third party, CampusHub may or may not notify customers of such release. Notification will be at the discretion of CampusHub and will be based on the nature and conditions surrounding the release of Personal Information.
