We appreciate your visit to the official website of Digital Media Institute
We respect your privacy and, except in cases where you elect to supply personal information via a web form, we do not collect personal information about you. In cases where you do share personal information with us via a web form, we do not share that information with outside entities, except in cases where we are compelled to do so by law or where we utilize third party services to facilitate our communication with you.
Additionally, when web forms are used, cookies may be utilized to help track “session” information. That is, for the duration of your form use, a cookie is used to remember a unique, non-personal code that identifies your interaction with a form. As you navigate the form, session tracking is used to prevent you from having to re-enter your information. Occasionally, form cookies may directly store form information — also for the purposes of easing form interactions.
Note that browsers lock down cookies at a domain level; information stored in cookies associated with dmi.edu are only utilized when you are actually visiting dmi.edu. DMII cannot assume responsibility for the security integrity of your personal computer however, so we generally utilize cookies only to temporarily store information, creating cookies that expire when you close your browser.
For users who are faculty, staff, or students of the college, cookies are also used in conjunction with login to private areas of the site. Traffic to access-controlled areas of the site is not tracked at an individual level, except in cases where DMII users are explicitly using a web form designed to track such information for purposes of completing college work.

Again, any information collected is not tied to personal identity and is used only for the internal analysis of aggregate traffic patterns across the site. Such patterns provide insight as to how we may improve the website over time.
