  • Log files
    • Log files are text files that a website automatically creates whenever someone accesses it. They record the requests made to the site’s web server. Log files record information such as your browser type, IP address and referring website.
  • Cookies
    • A cookie is a small data file that a website transfers to a user's hard drive when a user visits the website. A cookie file can contain information such as a unique ID that the website uses to track the pages visited, and is a standard method of registering website user preferences. These preferences are stored in a file on your computer's hard disk drive.
    • Cookies make it easier for you to use a website by enabling you to access your information when you "sign in" to your account, to make purchases and move uninterrupted between site areas. Cookies also enable search engines (such as Google® and Yahoo®), advertisers, and others to track your visits to and through different websites.
    • Although we do not currently set cookies on the CollegeHunch® Site, third parties may use cookies to track your visit to the CollegeHunch® Site. For example, if you visit the CollegeHunch® Site as a result of a search on Google® or Yahoo® or another search engine, that search engine may serve you ads for other college-related products and services when you are on other websites with their networks. We do not have access to or control over the cookies used by those third parties and this privacy policy does not reflect their privacy practices.
  • Web beacons
    • A web beacon is an object embedded in a web page used to monitor the behavior of the user visiting the website. It usually consists of a single-pixel image that is used in combination with a cookie or cookies. A web beacon or pixel tag can be placed on a web page or in an email to transmit information.
    • We, and third parties on our behalf, may use such pixels to learn if you visit the CollegeHunch® Site from one of our ads on another website, to determine whether you actually click to download the App once you are on the CollegeHunch® Site, and to direct ads for the App to you when you are on other websites. We do not have access to or control over beacons that third parties may be using and this privacy policy does not cover their privacy practices.
  • Other tracking technologies. We, and third parties on our behalf, may use other tracking technologies to learn if you visit the CollegeHunch® Site from one of our ads on another website, to determine whether you actually click on the download button once you are on the CollegeHunch® Site, to direct ads for the App to you when you are on other websites, or just to note that you have visited the CollegeHunch® Site. For example, the Facebook “like” button uses certain technologies together with cookies to track your online activity when you “like” online content. We do not have access to or control over beacons that third parties may be using and this privacy policy does not cover their privacy practices.

“Do Not Track” Signals

  • With some browsers, it is possible for a user to activate a “Do Not Track” signal, to indicate that the user does not want to be tracked across the websites that the user visits. The CollegeHunch® Site does not respond to Do Not Track signals. In other words, if you have activated a Do Not Track signal in your own browser, the CollegeHunch® Site will not block tracking by Google®, its affiliates, or anyone else of your activity on the CollegeHunch® Site.
