We use this information to administer our Web site, to help diagnose and troubleshoot potential server malfunctions, and to gather broad demographic information.

Springfield College also collects personally identifiable information (PII) at various points on our Web site.

Springfield College will never share, rent, sell, or otherwise disclose personally identifiable information to third parties for their use.

From time to time we may receive requests to disclose the identities of our users. We do not disclose the identities of our users unless we are legally required to do so. If a governmental agency (for example, law enforcement agencies, United States Attorneys' offices, or similar governmental agencies) sends us a subpoena, we will comply with it.
