Some of a Site's functionality can be used without revealing personal information; however, for features or services related to an online course registration and participation, personal information is required. If you do not use these specific features or services on the Site, then the only information the St. Jude Graduate School collects will be "Non-Personal Information" (i.e., information that cannot be used to identify you). Non-Personal Information includes information such as the web pages that you have viewed.
In order to access certain features and benefits on our Site, you may need to submit "Personally Identifiable Information." Personally Identifiable Information can include information such as your name and email address, among other things. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the Personally Identifiable Information you submit to the St. Jude Graduate School. Inaccurate information may affect your ability to use the Site, the information you receive when using the Site, and our ability to contact you. For example, your email address should be kept current because that is one of the primary means to communicate with you.
We gather the following types of information about users through the Site:
Non-Personal Information. When users come to our Site, the St. Jude Graduate School may track, collect and aggregate Non-Personal Information indicating which pages of our Site were visited, the order in which they were visited, when they were visited, and which hyperlinks were "clicked."

Although the information is not Personally Identifiable Information, we may be able to determine from an IP address a user's Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of his or her point of connectivity.
