Aggregate Information used for Analytical Purposes
Our Website collects some non-personal information about you using third party services (such as Google Analytics), and it may not be readily apparent to you that it is being collected. For instance, when you come to our site your IP address is collected. An IP address is often associated with the place from which you enter the Internet like your ISP (Internet service provider), your company, or your university. This information is not personally identifiable and we do not combine this type of information with personally identifiable information.

Information We Share with Others
We contract with other companies (credit card processors, shippers, website developers and others) to provide certain services to College Corner to fulfill orders, provide promotions and create or maintain our Website. In some instances, these contractors may have access to personally identifiable information but they contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality of the information and to use it only for purposes of carrying out College Corner business.
For example, in order to process and fulfill your orders, you may be required to submit (or we may be required to share) your personal information through the Website’s payment gateway (Authorize.net) and/or the selected shipping gateway (USPS, FedEx). Our shopping cart service is enable through software provided by WooCommerce.
In some instances, you may choose to deal with some of these contractors directly and provide your personal information to them. In those instances, you should check the privacy policies on their independent Websites to make sure you are willing to have your personal information handled to your satisfaction. For example, when you make a purchase from College Corner with a credit card, you may choose to use an independent card processor, such as PayPal. When these or similar choices are available, you will be notified about the option of checking their respective privacy policies, which will govern the collection and use of personal information that you give to them directly.

Notwithstanding the above policies, we reserve the right to disclose your personal information to appropriate third parties if we are required to do so by law or we believe that such action is necessary:
To comply with legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order;
To protect the company’s rights and property;
