At Trine University we are committed to protecting your privacy. Collection of personal information that has not been volunteered by you is not done by the University. For information received through our normal on-line venues we become the sole owners of this data. We do not sell, share, or rent this information to others in any way that we have not mentioned in this statement.
Automated Information Collection
Trine University gathers general information about an individual’s visit to the on-line services that does not collect personal information. This information is used to determine the type of visit to the University’s web pages in order to refine and improve our on-line offerings. This information is used in summary reporting that allows us to determine better ways to serve our visitors and to identify and correct performance and/or problem areas.
Information collected through e-mails and web forms
Information submitted to Trine University through e-mail or from our web forms is used by us to respond to your request. In addition, information sent to us through our on-line forms is usually stored by the University to better provide you with the requested information and to track future correspondence with us. Information that is considered confidential is collected from our secure web site that encrypts the information between the user and the University. It should be noted that e-mail is a form of communication that is not entirely within a secure environment. Many of our web forms are completed in a secure environment and are generally more secure than typical e-mail delivery.
On-line payment forms
Trine University provides a number of on-line payment forms via credit cards for tuition and other services offered by the University. Trine University uses a third party vendor to process our credit card transactions. Our on-line payment sites along with our processing partner reside on secure web servers that encrypt the data between the customer and the University and the processing vendor. By using this service the University does not collect any credit card numbers or store such information. Other information collected on these sites is stored and used by the University to allow us to track the transaction completed with and initiate correspondence if so required.

Trine University will not provide, sell or share your personal information to any nonaffiliated third party for independent use. We share information only in one of the following circumstances: a) you authorize it; b) you have requested a transaction requiring it; c) or, we are required or permitted by law to disclose such information. Information may be shared with affiliated organizations when involving services of value to individuals, which would otherwise not be available through the University.
Trine University takes reasonable precautions to keep the personal information you disclose through our on-line forms secure. We only release this information to third parties we believe share our commitment to privacy. However, we are not responsible for any breach of security or for the actions of these parties.
