Information Collection and Use
Robert Morris University (RMU) collects personally identifiable information when users submit forms (for example, applications for admittance or requests for information and services) on the Website.
Personally identifiable information includes any information that could reasonably be used to identify the user. This includes name, address, e-mail address, Social Security number, birth date, bank account information, credit card information, or any combination of information that could be used for identification purposes.
Forms collect only that information that is necessary to fulfill users' requests.
RMU uses this information to support the administrative needs of the University in areas such as admissions, financial aid, registration and communications.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
RMU provides limited information to University vendors as necessary to provide contractual services. Information collected on the RMU Website will not be sold or publicly distributed. Robert Morris University complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regulations.
Ensuring Accuracy of Information
The RMU website provides a system to view and/or update certain personally identifiable information. Authorized users can update or correct their mailing addresses and phone numbers.
RMU provides measures to protect information as it passes across the Internet using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, which encrypts the transmission of information that users submit. Detailed account information is password-protected for privacy and security. Only authorized users may access account information.
RMU uses e-mail to send University news and information. A number of forms on the Website utilize e-mail to facilitate requests. E-mail communications are not encrypted, so the University advises caution when including private, sensitive information.
Forms that collect financial information (such as a credit card number) utilize SSL technology to encrypt information transmitted over the Internet. Credit card numbers are not revealed at any time during the payment process. Credit card information is not stored in the RMU database.
Robert Morris University offers an online payment service called ePay. ePay allows users to make various payments (e.g. tuition payments, housing or registration deposits, etc.) to RMU electronically and is available 24 hours a day to process payments by check or credit card.
By using ePay, you are authorizing Robert Morris University to debit funds by way of an electronic funds transfer from your checking or credit card account. Clicking on the "Process Payment" button completes this authorization. You will receive an e-mail verification that will detail the status (accepted/rejected) of your payment.
By authorizing this electronic funds transfer you understand and agree that Robert Morris University is not liable for erroneous bank statements or incorrect debits to your account. You should refer to the terms and conditions provided by your bank concerning electronic transfers from your bank account. The policy and procedures of Robert Morris University (as listed on the website) and separately negotiated contracts with Student Financial Services apply to this Online Payment Service and are incorporated herein by reference.
In no event shall Robert Morris University be liable to any party for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, punitive or other damages (including without limitation, any lost profits, lost savings, loss of information, etc.) that are related to the use or the inability to use the content, materials and functions of the site or any linked website.
