Updated: July 27, 2016

Stevens Cooperative School (Stevens) is committed to respecting your privacy and protecting any personal information you share with us. You can visit our website without revealing personal information. In some cases, however, we may ask for personal information in order to provide the services you request. Such information will be used by Stevens only to conduct official school business and will never be disseminated by Stevens to any unaffiliated third party. All of the information that we collect from you is subject to this Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. By using the Website, you consent to the terms and conditions of the Privacy Policy. The Privacy Policy is subject to change at any time. At the time of a material change, the date of the change will be posted on this page.

Terms of Use

This website is intended to provide news and information about Stevens. We will make all reasonable efforts to ensure the accuracy and timeliness of content.

No part of this site or its contents — including, but not limited to, the school logo — may be copied, reproduced, modified, retransmitted, distributed, published, commercially exploited or otherwise transferred without written permission from Stevens.

Collection of Personal Information

You can generally visit our website without revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. The website will only collect personally identifiable data when voluntarily and knowingly submitted by a user. Some pages require registration of a username and/or password in order to be viewed. Some site functionality — such as automated email alerts — will require you to submit a name and email address. Other personal email will be transmitted to the website when filling out online forms or applications, or sending support requests to the webmaster via email.

Use of Information

We use personal contact information supplied to us by users to communicate more effectively with those users. We do not disclose any of your personal information, except as permitted by law, other than to our affiliates, such as our attorneys, and certain service providers, such as third-party website hosts. We will only release information about you to other parties if you direct us to do so, if compelled to do so by law, or in connection with any government or self-regulatory organization request or investigation. We may compile statistics that show the number of visitors and the number of requests we receive for particular pages or files on the site. These statistics are used internally to evaluate and improve the site. The statistics contain no personal information (or email addresses) and cannot be used to gather such information.

Email Privacy and Spam

The website contains email addresses of faculty and staff and (within the password-protected parts of the site) Stevens parents. Use of this information for private, commercial, or political mailings and/or distribution to any outside party is prohibited. If you have any questions about our privacy policy, please contact Stevens.

Online Giving and Other Transactions

We are committed to the privacy of all our donors and to those making any kind of transaction via the Stevens website. Should you decide to make an online donation or purchase, you will be asked to provide your name, contact information and credit card billing information. All of this information is encrypted using SSL, an industry standard secure technology designed to prevent the theft or interception of the information you provide. Credit card billing information is used only to obtain payment from the appropriate credit card firm and to fulfill the donor's or purchaser's request, and is not stored or otherwise retained by Stevens after the transaction is complete.

Student Privacy

Stevens is committed to protecting the privacy of our students and their families. We do not post the full names of students on the public pages of our website. Images of students are used on the public pages of the site; however, students are never identified by name in images.

These cookies facilitate your use of the site by identifying user preferences and saving frequently accessed information. Cookies may be used by the website to analyze user frequency, computer and browser type, trends, and usage behavior in order to improve the site administration and enhance the online user experience.
