Types of information collected:
During registration, we collect various information from you in order to enable our site to connect you with other alumni, news, and content that might be of interest to you. Submission of certain parts of that information is required for access to the web site.
In your profile, you will have the ability to complete a variety of information for display to other guests on the site. Other guests on this site will not be able to directly contact you and will not have access to certain parts of your registration information, such as email address, current zip and current area code. By default, this site will display your full name in any public areas.
Some of the information that we ask for, including your home address, phone number, etc. WILL ONLY be used for internal purposes, such as Alumni affairs. Should at some point we decide to aggregate such information into a printed or electronic directory of alumni, we will notify you via EMAIL - to the email address on file on your account - and give you the option to opt out of such a publication. In addition, we never divulge such information to third parties without your consent. Only the developers of GatewayGators.net and Gateway School District will have access to this information.
Real-Time Map Privacy info...
Our Real-Time mapping feature only reveals names, class year and general geographic area of the alumni... normally this is the ZIP CODE in which they reside. We ONLY map alumni on the basis of ZIP code. We will never show your actual geographical location at a more detailed level than your ZIP CODE. If you DO NOT WISH to be mapped on the REAL-TIME map, you may choose to leave the OPTIONAL ZIP CODE, HOME ADDRESS, CITY, STATE, ZIP, fields BLANK.
