What personal information does Concordia collect and maintain?

Concordia usually collects information or data via their websites or email campaigns.

Concordia collects your personal information mainly to stay in touch with You. Email communications in particular are aimed at keeping You informed about Concordia news, events, surveys and fundraising appeals.

Any information or data that may be collected that may allow for the identification of the user is kept and protected as strictly confidential information. This type of information is usually only obtained if provided by You via email, or other communication with Concordia via the website.

While no attempts are made to link individual users to information captured by Concordia websites, the following data may be automatically collected: the IP address from which the site is accessed; the type of browser used to access the website, the date and time the site was accessed; the pages viewed and if applicable, the site that linked the user to the Concordia website. This information would be used to improve the service offered by Concordia websites. Any such information collected by Concordia via its websites will not be transferred to any third parties in accordance with all applicable laws.

Concordia may use cookies to facilitate navigation on its websites. Cookies are special computer files automatically stored on the user's computer.

Email privacy

Concordia collects your personal information mainly to stay in touch with You. Email communications in particular are aimed at keeping you informed about Concordia news, events, surveys and appeals.

Students may send a request to internalcomms@concordia.ca and alumni may send a request to alumni@concordia.ca that Concordia refrain from using personal information for any of the purposes outlined above. Since some communications programs may already be in progress at the time such a request is received, alumni may continue to receive communications for a short time while the change is being implemented.

Concordia faculty and staff cannot unsubscribe from NOW news emails.
