Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes how New York Law School collects and uses personally identifiable information (“PII”) we obtain from and about individuals located in the U.S. both online and off-line. The effective date of this policy is August 1, 2005. Except as explicitly stated below, we will not affirmatively notify users of changes in our policy; but we will abide by the policy in effect at the time we collect PII from any user of this website, respecting uses of that PII.

You can inquire about our Privacy Policy by contacting the Office of Marketing and Communications at New York Law School, 185 West Broadway, New York, NY 10013, 212-431-2872.

GENERAL PRIVACY INFORMATION COLLECTION, USE, DISCLOSURE AND SECURITY OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
Direct Collection of PII: New York Law School collects personally identifiable information (“PII”), such as your full name, e-mail address, mailing address or telephone number, only in order to create or enhance our relationship with you. We collect PII from you directly when you voluntarily submit information to us by requesting materials or event registrations.

Use by New York Law School of PII: We use PII only to send materials such as viewbooks or event information. When you give us information for a specific purpose, we will use that information solely for that purpose unless we tell you otherwise and give you an opportunity to “opt out.”

Linked Websites: New York Law School’s website may contain links to other Internet sites operated by other organizations. New York Law School is not responsible for the privacy practices of websites operated by third parties that are linked to our website. Once you’ve left New York Law School’s site via such a link, you should check the applicable privacy policy of the third party to determine how they will handle any PII they collect from you.

Internal Security: New York Law School uses reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard PII in its possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification.

Third Party Access to PII at New York Law School: New York Law School will not share PII with any third party except to a person or entity who provides support for the internal operations of the website and who does not disclose or use that information for any other purpose. When we give third parties access to PII, they must first agree to maintain security and confidentiality consistent with this Privacy Policy.

If you would like to know whether New York Law School has collected PII about you, please send us the activities that you participated in on our website which requested PII; after reviewing the relevant databases, we will confirm whether we have collected such information about you. You may review PII about you in our records at any time provided you first give us proof of your identity via postal mail or by fax, such as a copy of a valid driver’s license with your name and address. You may request changes into the PII we have that pertains to you, and/or end any direct communications with you, or even delete your PII altogether.

Notification of Changes in this Policy: We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. When we do, we will give notice of changes in this space so you can be kept abreast by visiting this site from time to time. Despite any changes in policy, however, we only will use information in accordance with the privacy policy in effect when the information was collected.
