ICUAZ.com is an informational website committed to complying with responsible business and data management practices. Protecting the privacy and security of consumers’ information is very important to us. Our website serves the following functions:
- provides consumers with index of colleges and universities (in Arizona and beyond) as well as other related information;
- solicits feedback from consumers in the form of comments and surveys;
- serves third party ads from sponsors in order to fund research and publishing efforts;
- provides information for prospective students and their parents or other decision makers; and
- contains password-protected pages where premium members can access member-only materials.
Personal Information Collected on this Website
No personal information is collected on this website from consumers who browse for information about online advertising or who use the opt-out page, or from individuals who access the members-only section of our website.
The only personal information collected on this website is gathered on our “contact us” forms. In the consumer form, fields are provided so that users can submit questions or comments and provide contact information including name, email address, and phone number. We collect this personal information so that we can respond to these inquiries, comments, and questions. We may share information submitted by consumers with third parties to help resolve users’ complaints. We also may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law, including by search warrant, subpoena, or court order.
As discussed below, we also collect non-personally identifiable information on this website. However, we do not merge any of the personal information collected via our contact form with anonymous data collected on our website.
Non-Personally Identifiable Data Collected on this Website
We collect and store in server logs non-personally identifiable information, including but not limited to browser type, IP address, operating system, the date and time of visits, the pages visited on the site, time spent viewing the site, and return visits to the site. We also use Google Analytics, a service that records non-personally identifiable data such as browser type, operating system, the date and time of a visit, where visitors came from, the pages visited on this website, the time spent viewing site, where visitors went when they left the site, and return visits to the site. Google provides an opt-out tool in the form of a browser plugin which prevents your session from being tracked by Google Analytics.
We aggregate this non-personally identifiable data to better understand how visitors use our site, and to help manage, maintain, and report on use of our website. We store IP addresses for fraud detection and prevention purposes.
We may share this non-personally identifiable data with third parties for the limited purpose of reporting on use of our website, or to comply with applicable law. We also may share this data with our service providers. We do not rent, sell or share any non-personally identifiable data collected on this website with third parties for marketing purposes.
If you login to the members-only section of our site, we set a cookie with a randomly-generated anonymous identifier to allow you to navigate those pages.
We also serve cookies to help us anonymously track web traffic, as described above.
In addition, ICUAZ.com partner companies serve cookies via this website as part of the opt-out process. To enable consumers to opt out of Internet-based advertising (IBA) by a member company, the member company must set an “opt-out cookie” on the consumer’s browser. In the interest of our visitors and members, we provide a link to the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) opt-out tool. Please note that if you delete any opt-out cookies obtained using the NAI opt-out page, such as by clearing all cookies in your browser, you will need to return to the opt-out page to renew your choices. Additionally, Google provides an opt-out tool visitors may use to opt out of IAB served via Google or its partners.
