The general principle guiding this process is not to gather PII (name, phone number, postal address, and email address) about anyone who visits our websites unless they choose to share such information with the University freely.
When a person visits a BIU website, our web server automatically recognizes the Internet domain and the IP address from which that person visited our website. This data, which cannot be used to identify the visitor's personal email address or any other personal information, apart from the date, time, and the pages of the website explored, represents the only information collected during this event. The purpose of collecting this aggregate information is to enhance the content of the University's website and, therefore, the visitor's experience while navigating it, and it is not shared with any other organization.
Furthermore, if you decide to provide PII through our website by sending a message or filling out an electronic form to request additional information, we may use the PII to contact the user directly. PII may also be used to send the required information and additional information about the University.
Please be aware that we will not share the visitor's PII with commercial third parties or government entities unless required by federal or state law. Additionally, please also note that under Florida law, email addresses are considered public records; therefore, if you do not want your email address to be disclosed in response to a public records request, we recommend not sending us any email but instead contacting us by phone or in writing.
The Broward International University website provides, in addition to its academic programs and related material, information on a variety of topics. Although we strive to provide accurate and reliable information to our website visitors, we do not guarantee the accuracy or reliability of this content.
Broward International University reserves the right to add, update, or remove any part of the content of this policy without prior notice.
