The High Meadows Graduate School of Teaching & Learning (HM Graduate School, founded as the WW Academy) is committed to the privacy of all users of its website. Visitors to the High Meadows Graduate School website who choose to apply to programs administered by the HM Graduate School or register for additional information may be asked for their mailing addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses and/or other personally identifiable information. These data are used to create database records for outreach to candidates, application processes, and program administration, and, on occasion, to describe (without personal attribution) the nature and breadth of candidate outreach and applicant pools.
Records of individuals who become students or who voluntarily provide information on this Web site may be retained at the HM Graduate School for purposes of business correspondence.
- Any page on this Web site that requires entry of personal information is a secure page that employs advanced encryption technology.
- The High Meadows Graduate School does not sell, share, or provide lists of students, or applicants, or any portion of such lists or the information they contain, to third parties or external agencies. The HM Graduate School prohibits internal use of such information for purposes other than those described herein.
- From time to time the HM Graduate School may supply its lists to subcontractors for the purposes of publishing directories of students or program alumni; students/alumni may opt out. The Graduate School may occasionally engage an external agency to contact a limited number of students for research, data collection, and other related purposes. The HM Graduate School only engages external agencies that agree not to sell or share any information they have collected or been provided.
On occasion, if a third party seeks to contact a student through the HM Graduate School, the Graduate School may alert the student and, if the student so instructs, facilitate the contact. In instances where a third party seeks biographical information about a student in support of a scholarly or commercial project, the student or his/her estate will be consulted for permission up to fifty years after the date of the student’s first application to the HM Graduate School. After fifty years, biographical information may be released to researchers at the discretion of the HM Graduate School. Otherwise, the Graduate School does not assist third parties in contacting students.
HM Graduate School students and alumni may receive (by surface mail, email, or telephone) occasional requests to participate in Graduate School events or support the work of the Graduate School. Students/alumni may also receive periodic updates, by surface mail or email, about the HM Graduate School and its work. Any graduate or student of the HM Graduate School who wishes to request revisions to these records may contact the Webmaster, who will forward the request to appropriate Graduate School staff for response.
The High Meadows Graduate School of Teaching & Learning reserves the right to change this policy and to modify any program described on this website without notice or liability. Any such modification is prospectively binding on users.
