All the legal jargon is below, but the bottom line is that we never, ever will sell your e-mail address, or any information about you whatsoever to anybody!! We wouldn't want someone to do that to us, so we won't do it to you. All student or faculty ID information is kept on file solely to verify eligibility. All information is destroyed when no further verification is necessary.
