THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
AMS collects information about you, including minimal personal information provided by your institution in order to create a CoursEval login account that will be used to facilitate the course evaluation process. This personal information includes your name, e-mail address, a username for you to log in, and your active course list. Your institution may also include, at their discretion, your school ID number, gender, race, and cohort year.
When you log on to CoursEval, your browser will automatically transmit to the Company’s server the IP address of your computer and type of browser you are using. (An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web). Although your browser transmits the IP address of your computer, AMS does not associate this IP address with any personal information. We may collect aggregate and anonymized information about you and your use of our Website whenever you visit us online. For instance, we may collect various forms of “click stream” information such as entry and exit points for our website (i.e. referring URLs or domains), site traffic statistics, page views, impressions, and operating system and browser type. In addition, when users request pages on our website, our servers may automatically log their IP addresses. This aggregate information generally will not personally identify you or be correlated to you individually for external purposes.
In sum, AMS does not collect any personal information about users other than what users submit and their browsers transmit as described above, and the information submitted by their institutions. No personal information will be released without your prior approval and only for a designated purpose, subject to the exceptions noted below under “Ways in Which Information May Be Used and Disclosed.”
MANAGEMENT AND PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
CoursEval customers provide AMS with student and instructor information in order to facilitate the course evaluation process. This information will include your name, email address, a username, and your associated course list. The course list pertains to both students and instructors who are accessing CoursEval. The information may also include, at the discretion of your institution, your school ID number, gender, race, and cohort year.
AMS handles student information received from educational institutions with the utmost care and operates, on behalf of contracting schools, in compliance with applicable federal and state privacy laws, including educational privacy laws.

SECURITY MEASURES TO PREVENT MISUSE OF INFORMATION ENTRUSTED TO AMS
AMS uses technical, administrative and physical safeguards to maintain the security of your information. AMS enables the data you input to be encrypted when in route between your browser and the Company’s server and when in route between the Company’s server and some other browser or server. This practice helps prevent unauthorized third parties from intercepting and gaining access to your private data during transmission over the Internet. AMS uses 128-bit, Secure Socket Layer encryption supported by all popular web browsers. Nonetheless, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of data sent to us electronically on our website, and transmission of such data is therefore entirely at your own risk.
Data residing on the AMS server is password protected, and access is provided only to those employees of AMS who require such access to administer and maintain the Company’s system or to provide requested customer support to users of AMS.
