King University takes personal privacy seriously. The following policy explains the
information we collect when a person visits the King website and how King uses this
shall be effective immediately upon posting.
2.1 Contact Information
Controller: King University in the State of Tennessee
2.2 Information King Collects
King collects two kinds of information on this site: 1) Information that is voluntarily
supplied by visiting the site and enrolling in programs and 2) Information that is
automatically collected as you navigate the site.
In addition to information actively provided by individuals using the website, King
web servers automatically record certain non-personal information, including the name
of the domain and host from which you access the Web; the Internet Protocol (IP) address
of the computer you are using; the browser used and the operating system; the date
and time you access this site; and the Internet address of the web site linked directly
which place certain information on your computer to facilitate your future access.
This site also includes links to other websites hosted by third parties. When you
access any such website from this site, any information you provide will be governed
2.3 How King Uses This Information
King may use this information in order to carry out its institutional mission, improve
its website and services, and otherwise as permitted by applicable law. The legal
basis for processing your personal data is typically (i) as necessary for purposes
of King’s or a third party’s legitimate interests, (ii) as necessary for performance
of a contract with you, (iii) as necessary for compliance with a legal obligation,
or (iv) if you have provided consent.
King does not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others. We may provide
aggregated statistical data to reputable third-party vendors, but this data will include
no personally identifying information. We may release account information when we
believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (i) enforce law,
(ii) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements or (iii) protect the
rights, property or safety of King University, our users, or others. Upon appropriate
review by King’s legal counsel, the University will comply with all subpoenas or other
legal orders to release such information.
King will retain your information for as long as necessary in accordance with the
purposes detailed in this policy. For more information or if you have specific questions,
please contact us at the contact information provided above.
2.4 Sharing of Information
King University does, upon explicit request of users, share information with other
parties and gather information from other private data providers. For example, the
University receives test scores from testing agencies and will send transcripts to
persons or institutions outside the university. This is done only at the request of
users (persons to whom the information applies). It is against University policy to
release confidential information gathered through the Web.
2.5 How King Protects Your Information
When you access your personal information, we use a secure server. Industry standard
encryption (TLS) is employed before any information you input is sent to us. Furthermore,
all of the data we collect is protected against unauthorized access. As effective
as encryption technology is, however, no security system is completely impenetrable,
so King cannot guarantee absolute security of our systems, nor can we guarantee that
information you supply won’t be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the
2.6 Online Forums
King University makes forums, message boards, and other collaborative features available
to its users. The University does not ordinarily log public chat sessions, however,
any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you
should therefore exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information
in such places. King may collect such information if it has reasonable cause to suspect
misuse, unlawful conduct, breach of University policy, or other reasonable cause to
collect such information. Specific academic collaboration conducted in connection
with King classes may be logged but would be treated as non-public educational records.
2.7 Online Surveys
King employs the use of online surveys which may be conducted on the University’s
website. It is University policy that confidential information gathered in these online
surveys is used only for the research purposes indicated in the survey. Unless otherwise
noted on the specified survey, your answers are confidential and individual responses
will not be shared with other parties. Aggregate data from surveys may be shared with
external third parties.
2.8 Your Rights
If you are located in the European Union, under the General Data Protection Regulation
(GDPR), you may have the right to (i) request access to and rectification or erasure
of personal data, (ii) restrict or object to the processing of your data, (iii) in
some cases, the right to receive or have your data transmitted in a portable format,
and (iv) withdraw consent at any time. Please contact us at the contact information
provided above if you would like to exercise one or more of these rights.
Please do not hesitate to contact us at the phone number or email address provided
above if you have any questions or concerns regarding the processing of your data.
For individuals located in the European Union, you may also lodge a complaint with
the applicable supervisory authority, although we would appreciate the opportunity to receive and address your concerns
This policy applies to all visitors of King’s website, which is generally located
