Online Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Privacy

Don Bosco Technical Institute (Bosco Tech) respects the privacy of every visitor to our website. Your privacy is a priority and we go to great lengths to protect it. This Internet site privacy policy explains our online information practices and may be changed or updated from time to time. By visiting Bosco Tech’s website (www.boscotech.edu), you accept the practices described in this policy.

Data Collection

Through our website, we offer convenient online access to our educational program and communicate about upcoming events. We will not collect personal information from you when you visit our website unless you provide the information to us voluntarily.

Registering for a special event–when you register online for a special event, we may ask for your name and contact information. Depending upon the activity, we may also collect payment information (such as standard credit card data).

Making a financial contribution–when you make a financial contribution online, we collect your name, contact information and standard credit card data.

How We Use Cookies

We send “cookies” to your computer and use other technologies to enhance your online experience. A cookie can be either permanent (remaining on your computer until you delete it) or temporary (lasting only until you close your browser). A cookie is a small text file that helps us recognize a repeat visitor, facilitate the visitor’s ongoing access to and use of the site, and track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that can lead to website improvements. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, you can deny or accept the cookie feature using a simple procedure available in most browsers. If you block cookies, however, you may lose some website functionality.

Is My Credit Card Information Secure?

Yes, your credit card information is secure. We use a variety of safeguards to protect the security of your credit card transactions. We use technologies and processes such as encryption, access controls, network firewalls, physical security and other measures that make it extremely difficult for anyone to intercept the credit card information you send to us. When we work with other companies to process credit card transactions, those companies also use encryption and other security measures.

You can make financial contributions online, by mail, or by calling (626) 940-2000.

Is My Personal Information Secure?

We use the same security measures and industry-standard security protocols for the input of your personal information as we do for credit card transactions.

How We Use Your Information

Bosco Tech will not sell, trade, or share personal information about site visitors or those who make online contributions with anyone, nor will we send mailings to our financial donors on behalf of other organizations.

If you provide Bosco Tech with personal information when you visit our website, we may use the information in our programs and activities. We may enter your name into one of our databases so we can contact you to obtain your input, provide information about our programs and events, or request contributions.

On occasion, Bosco Tech may share information about you with vendors and service providers that assist us with our activities and programs. These vendors and service providers help us with functions such as managing data, compiling alumni directories and verifying matching company information related to donations. In addition, we make disclosures as required by law.

We Care About Doing It Right

Bosco Tech is committed to accuracy and precision in processing your personal information. We employ a variety of error-checking procedures, and our systems are subject to independent external and internal audits to ensure the privacy, security and accurate processing of your information.

Note to Parents on our Privacy Policy

Bosco Tech welcomes children to learn more about our school and its programs. However, we encourage children to do this only with their parents’ knowledge and supervision.

More information about children’s privacy and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) is available at The Federal Trade Commission Website.
