Duke Alumni Privacy Policy

Duke University is committed to preserving the privacy of alumni and friends. The alumni association (DAA, we) collects personal information about you, including postal and email addresses, phone numbers, details about your Duke degree, and your previous involvements with Duke, as part of our effort to keep alumni informed and connected to Duke. Selected information may also be shared through a password-protected online directory for the purpose of facilitating contacts among Duke alumni, students or staff. Directory users must agree to terms of use before receiving access to the directory. 

When users of our website provide contact information, such as by updating their online profile, registering for an event or subscribing to an email list, their email address is recorded and may be used to send information about Duke and Duke alumni activities. Alumni have the ability to opt-out of any communications sent by Duke to display any information through the online directory.

DAA may share information about you with other Duke offices and departments for University-related activities. DAA does not sell or otherwise make available information about alumni for any commercial or philanthropic purpose not directly connected with or approved by Duke University. We may enter into contractual arrangements with third party businesses, such as banks and insurance companies, to provide services and promotions to Duke alumni. We only enter such arrangements when we believe that they provide unique value to the Duke community. In such cases, DAA may provide alumni contact information for the exclusive purpose of communicating a Duke-specific promotion to alumni. These Third-party vendors are prohibited contractually from retaining or using this information for any other purpose. Additionally, DAAmay contract with third-party vendors to transmit alumni information to third-party vendors, such as emailing services, to facilitate our business practices. All such agreements are screened to ensure that alumni information is secure.
