Privacy Policy

Welcome to the Maine Community College System website. Your privacy when using this site is important to us. Here’s how we work to protect it.

Normal Web Site Usage

You can visit the MCCS website to obtain information without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information. The only information we collect and store during this type of normal use is the name of your Internet Service Provider, the website that referred you to us, the pages you request, and the date and time of those requests. This information is used to help us analyze trends and improve our site. When you use the website in this way, we do not collect or store personally identifiable information such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, or phone number unless you have requested specific information through one of our on-line forms or have filled out one of our surveys.

Collection of Personally Identifiable Information

If you choose to provide personally identifiable information to us when using this site—through a form, survey, or other type of correspondence—the information is collected and stored in a manner appropriate to the nature of the data and is used to fulfill your request. Unless required to do so by the Maine Freedom of Access Act (FOAA), we do not share or otherwise disclose to other organizations or third parties the personal information you may have chosen to provide as a user of this site.

Links to Non-MCCS Sites

This site contains content and other materials that link to web sites operated by third parties. We have no control over those sites and this Privacy Policy does not apply to them. You are encouraged to review the privacy policies of those other sites.
