  • Information Collection

    Gonzaga, or service providers acting on our behalf, collects the personal information that you choose to provide about yourself and others when using our Sites. Personal information may include, but is not limited to, name, contact information, billing information, information pertaining to your interests, date of birth, gender, religion, ethnicity, employment and education background, and other information you choose to provide. For example, we may collect this information when you submit forms through our Sites, donate through our Sites, create a MySchoolApp account, purchase items through our online bookstore, or send us inquiries.
    Students may also provide information about themselves to Gonzaga and other members of the Gonzaga community, including through third-party integrated applications we use. For example, students may provide such information when they attend virtual classes, upload their homework, or connect with teachers and classmates through these applications. Please see below for more information about third-party applications integrated into the Sites.
    You may choose to provide information about Gonzaga students, prospective students, and other individuals applying for admission to our School, such as their names, birthdates, addresses, extracurricular interests, and education information. We may collect this information, for instance, when you submit an application inquiry or upload information to MySchoolApp.
    We may receive information about students and prospective students from third parties and combine that information with other information that we collect. For example, when your child uses the High School Placement Test to apply to Gonzaga, the Archdiocese of Washington will share your child’s test information with Gonzaga for our admissions purposes. We may also obtain information about other individuals from third parties, such as information used for fundraising purposes.
    Gonzaga (or third parties as described below) also may automatically collect information concerning your interactions with us and our Sites, such as your internet protocol (IP) addresses, geographic location of visitors (country, city), browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, time spent on pages, and other information we collect through the use of cookies and similar technologies.

    The School may also disclose your personal information outside the School community under certain conditions, such as when:
    • There is reason to believe that the disclosure is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with rights or property of Gonzaga or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities or where the School believes in good faith that the law requires it or it is necessary to respond to a legal request.
    • Accreditation, oversight, and research authorities request such information or it is necessary to share information with our professional advisors, such as attorneys.
    • In the event Gonzaga sells or transfers all or a portion of its business or assets to a third party, such as in the event of an actual or potential merger, acquisition, or bankruptcy reorganization.
    • You have consented to the sharing, or we have disclosed the sharing to you when we collected or shared the information.
    In any instance where it is necessary to share your personal information outside the School as described above, the School will do our best to limit the personal information we share to that which is necessary.
    We may share information that has been de-identified or aggregated without limitation.
