Our privacy policy is straightforward: we collect no personal information about you unless you select to provide that information to us. We do not provide, share, sell, or transfer any personal information to a third party.

Some of our web pages allow users to voluntarily submit personal information about themselves. Such information is primarily used to enable dissemination of SERVE Center publications and materials.

We do not validate the accuracy of information posted on sites you visit or control usage of information that you automatically initiate while on other servers. Please note that other sites may send cookies that solicit personal information or collect data.

The SERVE Center Site does use cookies, but such cookies are used only to turn off functions (on subsequent visits) that are only designed to engage when an individual visits the Site for the first time.

If you decide to send us an email, the message will usually contain your return e-mail address. If you include identifying information in your email because you want us to address issues specific to your situation, we may use that information in responding to your request.

Please send only information necessary to help us process your request.
