When you use our websites, we may collect certain information. Here is an overview of the information we collect, how we use it, and how to contact us for more information.


A number of pages within Lake Erie College's website properties contain links to external sites. When you leave one of our website properties, you are subject to the use and privacy policy of each new site you visit.

If at any time we believe that your personal data has been compromised, we will immediately notify you and all other affected users.

You may choose not to provide us with any personal information. You can still access/use most of our websites; however, you will not be able to access and use any part that requires such information. If you would like to change any information that you have submitted, please send your request to us at


Personal Information: We collect information that can be used to identify you as an individual ("Personally Identifiable Information," or PII) only when you provide this information directly to us, such as voluntarily submitting a form or signing up for an email list. You do not have to provide any PII to use our websites; however, if you submit a form on our site, we may store the information we collect through that form. We may also collect information through your voluntary interaction with any of our public forums, including our social media platforms. Depending on the purpose for providing your PII, it may or may not be discarded (see our GDPR Privacy Statement).

Google Analytics: We use a variety of Google Analytics tools to gather information about how you use our websites and the devices you use to access them, such as your IP address, geographical location, length of visit, pages viewed, and browser preferences. We use this information to better understand site usage and to make improvements to the user experience. We will never (and will not allow any third-party to) use Google Analytics to track or to collect any PII of visitors to our sites. Google offers an opt-out browser add-on that provides visitors the ability to prevent Google Analytics from using their data.

Cookies: As you browse our websites, cookies (small files of basic information) may be placed on your computer so that we can learn more about how you arrived at our site and whether you've visited previously. You may choose not to accept cookies from our sites. Please refer to your specific browser for information on opting out or deleting cookies.
