– Privacy Statement

last updated on 11/06/2016

Collection of Your Personal Information

At some JCTIC sites or hand written forms, we ask you to provide personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address, or telephone number. We may also collect demographic information, such as your gender, preferences, interests and favorites.

In order to access some JCTIC services, you will be asked to sign in with a username and password, which we refer to as your Intranet Account credentials. You can use the same credentials to sign in to many different JCTIC services, as well as those system linked in our Intranets. By signing in on one JCTIC site or service, you may be automatically signed into other 3rd party online services. As part of creating your credentials, you are requested to provide an alternate e-mail address which we use to help verify your identity and communication. A unique user login ID will be assigned to your credentials which will be used to identify your credentials and associated information.

We may collect information about your interaction with JCTIC sites and services. For example, we may use website analytics tools on our site to retrieve information from your browser, including the site you came from, the search engine(s) and the keywords you used to find our site, the pages you view within our site, your browser add-ons, and your browser's width and height. We may also use technologies, such as cookies, to collect information about the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on our sites and services. Additionally, we collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring Web site addresses.

When you receive newsletters or e-mail from JCTIC, we may use customized links or similar technologies to determine whether the e-mail has been opened and which links you click in order to provide you more focused e-mail communications or other information.

In order to offer you a more consistent and personalized experience in your interactions with JCTIC, information collected through one service may be combined with information obtained through other services.




Use of Your Personal Information

JCTIC collects and uses your personal information to operate and improve its sites and services. These uses may include providing you with more effective service; making the sites or services easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information; and displaying content and information that are customized to your interests and preferences.

We also use your personal information to communicate with you. We may send certain mandatory service communications such as school newsletters, and security announcements. Some JCTIC services, such as school circular and newsletter to parents, send periodic reminders that are considered part of the service. We may also occasionally send you surveys or questionnaires to help make our school better.




Sharing of Your Personal Information

Except as described in this statement, we will not disclose your personal information outside of JCTIC and its controlled affiliates without your consent.

We occasionally incorporate services from other vendors, such as E-learning. Those service providers will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose. However, we may access or disclose information about you, including the content of your communications, in order to: (a) comply with the law or respond to lawful requests or legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of JCTIC or our stakeholders, including the enforcement of our agreements or policies governing your use of the services; or (c) act on a good faith belief that such access or disclosure is necessary to protect the personal safety of JCTIC staff, students, alumni, parents or the public.




Accessing and Changing Your Personal Information

You may have the ability to view or edit some of your personal information online. In order to help prevent your personal information from being viewed by others, you will be required to sign in with your credentials (Login ID and password).

For changes to your personal information, please contact our general office.




Security of Your Personal Information

JCTIC is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities.

If a password is used to help protect your accounts and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.




Use of Cookies

JCITC Web sites use "cookies" to enable you to sign in to our services and to help personalize your online experience. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies contain information that can later be read by a Web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to store your preferences and other information on your computer in order to save you time by eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same information and to display your personalized content and appropriate advertising on your later visits to these sites.

When you sign in to a site using your JCTIC login ID and password, we store your unique ID number, and the time you signed in, in an encrypted cookie on your hard disk. This cookie allows you to move from page to page at the site without having to sign in again on each page. When you sign out, these cookies are deleted from your computer. We also use cookies to improve the sign in experience. For example, your login ID may be stored in a cookie that will remain on your computer after you sign out. This cookie allows your login ID to be pre-populated, so that you will only need to type your password the next time you sign in. If you are using a public computer or do not otherwise want this information to be stored, you can disable the storing of cookies in your browser.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use some JCTIC sites and services that depend on cookies.

If you choose to accept cookies, you also have the ability to later delete cookies that you have accepted. In Internet Explorer 7, you can delete cookies by selecting “Tools”, “Delete browsing history” and clicking the “Delete Cookies” button. If you choose to delete cookies, any settings and preferences controlled by those cookies will be deleted and may need to be recreated.




Controlling Unsolicited E-mail ("Spam")

JCTIC is concerned about controlling unsolicited commercial e-mail, or "spam." JCTIC has a strict Anti-Spam Policy prohibiting the use of a JCTIC e-mail account to send spam. JCTIC will not sell, lease or rent its e-mail subscriber lists to third parties. While JCTIC continues to actively review and implement new technology, such as expanded filtering features, there is no currently available technology that will totally prevent the sending and receiving of unsolicited e-mail. Using junk e-mail tools and being cautious about the sharing of your e-mail address while online will help reduce the amount of unsolicited e-mail you receive.




Enforcement of This Privacy Statement

If you have questions regarding this statement, you should first contact us by e-mail (ithelpdesk@tic.edu.hk).




Changes to This Privacy Statement

We will occasionally update this privacy statement to reflect changes in our services. When we post changes to this Statement, we will revise the "last updated" date at the top of this statement. If there are material changes to this statement or in how JCTIC will use your personal information, we will notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes prior to implementing the change or by directly sending you a notification. We encourage you to periodically review this statement to be informed of how JCTIC is protecting your information.
