Like most website operators, Student’s Inn collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Student’s Inn’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Student’s Inn’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Student’s Inn may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Student’s Inn also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving inquiries. Student’s Inn will not disclose any such information to third parties.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors of Student’s Inn’s websites choose to interact with Student’s Inn in ways that require Student’s Inn to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Student’s Inn gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who want to download past papers to sign up with us. They will be asked to provide Name, School, username, password, email address and other such basic information. Those who engage in transactions with Student’s Inn – by paying for tuition fee for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Student’s Inn collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Student’s Inn. Student’s Inn does not disclose personally-identifying information to third parties other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Student’s Inn will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Student’s Inn discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Student’s Inn believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Student’s Inn, third parties or the public at large.

Student’s Inn takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
