Lenoir-Rhyne University (LR) has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website: www.lr.edu.
Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. Because we gather certain types of information about the users of LR's website, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather, how we use it, and how to correct or change it.
Procedure Information Gathering and Usage
The web server software of LR captures the IP address of all computers accessing this website and the tracking is never associated with an individual user. This information is stored on a temporary basis and then deleted from our systems. This information is used to help tailor the site content based upon user needs and to gather statistical data of web usage. We track and catalog the search terms that users enter in search engines used to find our site from the Internet, but this tracking is never associated with individual users.
LR gathers two types of information about users: data that users provide through optional, voluntary registration on several of our pages; and data gathered through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views. Any information voluntarily submitted via a web form on this site will be collected and tracked. This data is only used for internal purposes, and will not be made available to third parties.
This site contains links to other sites. LR is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.

Personal Information and Records
Some personal information, such as students' educational records and employees' personnel records, is largely protected from disclosure by statute. Certain information collected in the course of research on human subjects is also protected from disclosure. Other information may be protected by more general laws, regulations or policies.
With respect to the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information, the intent of LR is to comply with applicable federal law, state law, and LR policies. Please note that state public records law requires the university to disclose, to anyone who asks, any records that the university has made or received in the course of conducting state business unless there is a specific legal basis for maintaining the privacy of the requested records.
