Emergency Coverage

We are a small college with 2 staff members dedicated to the website. We are essentially the go-to people when it comes to updating the website during closings, snowstorms, etc. An issue arose because this weekend neither one of us is going to be available to update the website in case of an emergency.  Although the likelihood of something happening is small, we still need to ensure that we have coverage in case something does happen. How do other institutions handle this coverage?

Updating our Privacy Policy

Hello,We are looking to update our privacy policy on our website to better reflect the activities of our marketing folks and their partners. This would include things like retargeting and the potential personalization of our CRM. I was wondering if other universities have updated their privacy policies recently and could share how they crafted it? I'd like to have some sort of template before meeting with our lawyer to get their sign off.Thanks!See More
