Some of Covenant College's sites and services collect personally identifiable information to further personalize your experience within a site. Some sites and services require that you provide personally identifiable information in order to participate in the activities and offerings within.
We may use the information you provide about yourself to fulfill your requests for our products, programs, and services, to respond to your inquiries about the College and these offerings, and to offer you other products, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you. We sometimes use this information to communicate with you, such as to notify you when we make changes to our services, to fulfill a request by you, or to contact you about your account with us. Most of our communications provide an "opt-out" feature.
We may also use your information to update internal systems. This allows for seamless delivery of services and resources to you across the College.
