Privacy Statement

What information do we gather about you?

We use cookies on some parts of the service to enhance the site experience. A cookie is a small text file stored on your computer/phone's disk by a webserver.

The ADU website may also contain direct links to other publicly available services such as social media sites. ADU is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. Since the cookie policies of these sites change over time, you should determine their policies by visiting the privacy policy pages of these sites or services directly.

We use the information we gather from you for systems administration purposes, abuse prevention, and to track user trends, and for the other purposes described in this policy.

For example, we use third parties such as Google Analytics to generate reports on site usage, web traffic, user behavior, and user interests in order to optimize our website for our visitors. We prohibit any third parties who receive user information for this purpose from using or sharing user information for any purpose other than for providing services for the benefit of our users.

We may also provide your information to third parties in circumstances where we believe that doing so is necessary or appropriate to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues, or protect our rights and safety and the rights and safety of our users or others.
