2. Cookies and web beacons
Like nearly all WordPress blogs, this site stores “convenience” cookies on your computer whenever you leave a comment. The cookies record the name, email address, and URL that you enter when you submit a comment so that you won’t have to re-type that info the next time you leave a comment.
Third-party advertisers may also place and read cookies on your browser and/or use web beacons to collect information. We have no access or control over these cookies. You should review the respective privacy policies on any and all third-party ad servers for more information regarding their practices and how to opt-out.
If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your web browser options. Instructions for doing so and for other cookie-related management can be found on the specific web browsers’ websites.
Google Analytics is a web analytics tool we use to help understand how visitors engage with this website. It reports website trends using cookies and web beacons without identifying individual visitors. When students begin to contribute content to this blog, they will learn how to analyze this data and understand more about how the internet works. You can read more at the Google Analytics Privacy Overview.
Users may choose to receive email blog updates via FeedBurner by submitting an email address to the email subscription form. We use a secure opt-in subscription system and we reserve the right to contact subscribers with information related to this website and blog. Subscribers may unsubscribe anytime and every email delivered will contain an “Unsubscribe” link.
When leaving a comment, users must submit a name and email address. To combat spam, the WordPress blogging platform also records the IP address of anyone submitting a comment.
Again, none of this information will be shared with anyone (including students) without your direct permission.
4. Personal Information
Any information submitted through our website (e.g. Contact or 3D Printing for Community Students Submission forms) will remain confidential. We will not share any information with third parties.
