Privacy Policy

College Station Independent School District (CSISD) is committed to protecting the privacy and accuracy of confidential information to the extent possible, subject to provisions of state and federal law. We will only collect, store and use your Personally Identifiable Information for defined purposes.

The information collected during your visit to our web pages is limited and only used to help us support and enhance our relationship with you. Your information may also be used to improve our services and your web experience.

E-mail addresses or other directly personally identifiable information such as name, street address, or phone number are collected only when you initiate communication with us via e-mail or provide us with the information when you:

  • Subscribe to a newsletter or a mailing list
  • Request information or assistance
  • Complete a form

Pursuant to the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, CSISD will not give, sell, or otherwise transfer e-mail addresses collected or maintained by our website to any other party for the purpose of initiating, or enabling others to initiate, e-mail messages. E-mail addresses provided to CSISD for the purpose of communicating electronically are confidential and not subject to disclosure except as outlined by the Public Information Act (Section 552.137 of the Texas Government Code). Personally identifiable information will be used only as needed to complete your requests or process your transactions. CSISD will only disclose personal information as required by law.

Security

CSISD is very committed to safeguarding your information. We use our best efforts along with up to date technology to employ limited data security measures, such as encryption, on some but not all systems. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, the district strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, but cannot guarantee its absolute security. Do not provide your Personally Identifiable Information if you are concerned with its disclosure. We do our best to keep your information secure. We try to keep our sites and applications available, bug-free and safe, but do not make guarantees about any parts of our sites or applications.

We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via e-mail or conspicuous posting via the applications in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system(s).

Cookies and other Tracking Technologies

Cookies are small text files that web servers typically send to users’ computer when they visit a website. Cookies can be used on mobile applications as well. Cookies can be read or edited when the user loads a website or advertisement from the domain that wrote the cookie in the first place.

Cookies are used by companies to collect and send information about a user’s visit – for example, number of visits to the application, average time spent, pages viewed, navigation history through the website, browser used, if access was mobile or desktop and other statistics. Cookies cannot be used to access any other data on a user’s mobile device, to personally identity them, or to act like malware or a virus.

Google Analytics

CSISD websites use Google Analytics; a Web analytics service provided by Google. Google Analytics uses cookies to collect information such as URLs, internet domain and host names, browser software, and the date and time that the site is visited. This information is used to monitor the effectiveness of the website and to consider potential improvements to the website. 

The information by itself does not directly identify any individual visitor and is transmitted to and stored by Google on its servers. CSISD does not share any specific information about a particular user.

Aggregate Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We may share aggregated information that does not include any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and we may otherwise disclose Non-Personally Identifiable Information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other purposes. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personally Identifiable Information.

Phishing

Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to CSISD. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.

Privacy Policy Amendments

This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time to reflect new technology, your needs, and business developments. We will notify you of any material changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on the website. You are advised to consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes.
