We Take Our Customers’ Privacy Seriously
This Privacy Statement describes the information gathered, used and disclosed by Digital Architecture Group, Inc. (Digital Architecture). This Privacy Statement may be updated at any time without notice by posting a revised policy at this location.
Digital Architecture has two kinds of relationships that are covered by this Privacy Statement: a) Individuals visiting and using the digarc.com Website; and b) Institutions that use the Acalog ACMS hosted on our servers to create and deliver online academic catalogs.
This Website contains links to other Websites not under the ownership or control of Digital Architecture. Digital Architecture is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of linked Websites.
Digital Architecture has institution-specific contracts for each client using the Acalog ACMS hosted on our servers. Those contracts prohibit Digital Architecture from obtaining or sharing any personal information that may be gathered by our customers. However, Digital Architecture does not restrict or control the use of information by institutions that use the Acalog ACMS for purposes of publishing their academic catalog(s) on the Internet. Please reference the privacy statement published by the institution itself for information regarding that institution’s policies in regard to personal information.
Why We Collect Information
As a provider of outsourced academic catalog and other Internet-based technologies, Digital Architecture electronically supports the collection and maintenance of student, prospective student, and administrator information required by educational institutions from those who make use of online catalog features such as the “Portfolio” capability, or secure administrative features. Digital Architecture stores this information on its servers and makes the information available solely to our partner institutions.
The information provided during registration, such as e-mail address, institution affiliation, and Zip code, may be used to create personalized content. Any financial information collected is used only to bill the user for products and services they have requested.
Digital Architecture is dedicated to ensuring the integrity of its customer base so the law is not unknowingly broken by its customers or end users. Digital Architecture must handle personal information of our clients’ site visitors and, before providing such information, must know who each client is, have proof of that client’s identity, know how to contact that client, and occasionally verify how the client is using the Acalog ACMS.
Demographic information about our client’s customers, and our customers, helps Digital Architecture to provide products that meet the needs of our customers, and our client’s customers. Understanding our user base means we can adapt a visitor’s experience so that it will be relevant to the purposes of the visitor. In order to provide such relevance, Digital Architecture permits visitors to supply as little or as much personal information as they deem necessary to obtain a requested service.
How We Collect Information
Digital Architecture gathers personal information primarily through “opt-in” forms.
We use “cookie” technology to enable certain functionality within Digital Architecture Internet software products. (Cookies are packets of information sent by a web server to a browser, stored temporarily by that browser, and then sent back to the server to enhance the experience for an end user.) Digital Architecture cookies are used only for authentication and session state information. When a user’s browser is closed, the cookie information is deleted from our database.
Digital Architecture does not share, sell, or rent personally identifiable information, including your e-mail address, with outside third parties without your express consent.
Digital Architecture does permit its clients to own and manage any personal user information collected on the client’s behalf, and Digital Architecture does not assume responsibility for the privacy practices of its institutional clients.
Digital Architecture provides “opt-in” opportunities via its Acalog ACMS product to permit prospective students to request admissions assistance. We use an e-mail address to confirm registration and the validity of e-mail addresses.
Where applicable, Digital Architecture provides end users with the opportunity to “opt-out” of receiving unsolicited communication from our clients.
E-mail addresses are required in order authenticate end users who wish to obtain some features of Digital Architecture products. We do not rent out or sell our users’ e-mail addresses to third parties for unsolicited e-mail communications.
Because we host institutional course and program content, we may need to contact users regarding system issues, even though they may have opted to not receive Digital Architecture offers or updates.
