Maryville College Alumni Directory User Agreement

The Maryville College Alumni Directory is designed to facilitate communication among alumni for personal or College-related purposes.

I. Privacy and Security

The College has not, does not and will never sell alumni information to anyone. All alumni information is strictly guarded for use by individual alumni and the College for personal and College-related purposes only.

The College has taken all reasonable precautions to secure the personal information available through the Alumni Directory. The Alumni Directory is password protected to allow access only by registered College alumni, faculty, staff, and students. Although this precaution should effectively protect any personal information available through the Alumni Directory from abuse or outside interference, a certain degree of privacy risk is faced any time information is shared over the Internet. Therefore, you can hide your information from being viewed by other community members.

You further understand that it is your responsibility to keep your information in the Alumni Directory updated, and that Maryville College may periodically use the contact information to communicate with you.

II. Policy and Guidelines for Proper Use

To safeguard the operation of the Alumni Directory, the College has adopted many guidelines and policies that are used by the College to govern conduct, particularly conduct that occurs in an online environment.
