Privacy Statement: Mid-Plains Community College Notice of Privacy Policy

Protecting the privacy of your personal information is important to us at MPCC. We respect your right to privacy and recognize our obligation to keep information about you secure and confidential. We do not sell or share information about you with outside marketers.

Federal Privacy Protection Requirements

Our Privacy Policy conforms to the final privacy rule published by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), as required by Section 504(a) of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (the GLB Act), with respect to financial institutions and other persons under the FTC’s jurisdiction. Under provisions of the GLB Act, MPCC as a provider of financial services which include student loans and collection agency services is required to disclose to all of its customers its privacy policies and practices with respect to information sharing with both affiliates and nonaffiliated third parties. The GLB Act also limits the instances in which a financial institution may disclose nonpublic personal information about a consumer to nonaffiliated third parties.

This notice uses the term “Nonpublic personal information.” This means personal information about you which identifies you, and that is not available from public sources.
