This privacy notice applies only to the IU Guest Semester (guestsemester.iu.edu) and explains our practices concerning the collection, use, and disclosure of visitor information. Visitor information collected by IU Guest Semester will be used only as outlined in this privacy notice.
Other units at the university may collect and use visitor information in different ways. Therefore, visitors to other university websites should review the privacy notices for the particular sites they visit. IU Guest Semester is not responsible for the content of other websites or for the privacy practices of websites outside the scope of this notice.
Because Internet technologies continue to evolve rapidly, IU Guest Semester may make appropriate changes to this notice in the future. Any such changes will be consistent with our commitment to respecting visitor privacy, and will be clearly posted in a revised privacy notice.
