Privacy Policy

Ogden-Weber Tech College has created this statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to user privacy. This document explains how we gather, use and protect user information.

Personal Information

While using this site, users may choose to submit personal information through email or online forms. We will use this information to process user requests, but we will not intentionally sell, share or distribute personal information to third parties except as required by law or OWATC policy.

Statistical Logs Kept

OWATC uses reporting programs to collect data about visitor traffic to our site. We do not attempt to personally identify visitors. Instead, we collect data to analyze in aggregate to determine trends and improve our sites. Here are some examples of the types of data we routinely collect:
ΓÇó Internet address of computer
ΓÇó Browser type
ΓÇó Device type
ΓÇó Referring web page
ΓÇó Date, time and duration of visit

Cookies Used to Preserve Data

Some OWATC webpages require the use of cookies (bits of data passed by our network to the userΓÇÖs browser for storage). For instance, the Student Portal uses cookies (active only during user sessions) to remember that a user successfully authenticated and to assist in page layout settings. Users are not required to use the Student Portal. This tool is provided for convenience. If users prefer not to receive cookies, they can turn them off in their browser or set their browser to ask before accepting new cookies.

Security Programs Running

We have put in place physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, to assist in maintaining data security and to assist in correctly using the information we collect online. We do not intentionally release personal information gleaned from these programs to others, except as required by law.

Security Precautions Users Should Take

Although we make every effort to secure our networks, OWATC cannot guarantee the privacy of online communications. Users should use discretion in providing information in online classes, chat rooms or other open forums on the Web. If using Student Portal to access personal records, users should be sure to log off when finished by exiting the site AND closing the browser. Failure to do so may result in the next computer user having access to the previous userΓÇÖs information.

Other Sites Have Different Policies

This site contains links to other independently managed OWATC sites. Some may use information for purposes other than stated above. Be sure to read their separate privacy statements. WSU sites also contain links to sites outside the College. These sites may have their own privacy statement or none at all. We urge users to exercise caution when providing personal data to any site. Check their policies and contact them if you have questions.

Credit Card Processing

The OWATC uses Authorize.Net as our third-party credit card processor. Please visit to review their privacy policy.

Protecting ChildrenΓÇÖs Privacy

We encourage parents to explore our website with their children. If we learn that a child under age 13 has provided personally identifiable information to our sites, without verifiable parental consent, we will promptly remove this from our files. For more on childrenΓÇÖs privacy rights, read about the ChildrenΓÇÖs Online Privacy Act at the FTCΓÇÖs website.

Alternate Ways to Submit Information

Users have a choice about whether to provide personal information online. For other options on how you can provide information by an alternate means, please call the general number 801-627-8300.
