Student Privacy Policy

At ULethbridge International College Calgary (referred to as “UICC”, “we”, “us” or “our”), we respect and are committed to protecting your privacy, and we support a general policy of openness about how we collect, use and disclose your personal information.

This Privacy Policy informs you how UICC collects, uses and discloses the personal information that you provide to us through use of our website, telephone services, application forms and departmental office forms. Unless you expressly indicate otherwise, by submitting an application to UICC, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy also explains how you can contact us if you have a question about our privacy practices, want to change or update your personal information or change your preferences concerning our use and disclosure of your personal information.

From time to time, this Privacy Policy may change. We will include a “last amended” date and we strongly encourage you to refer back to the Privacy Policy periodically.

UICC will not collect, use or disclose your personal information in a way that is incompatible with the applicable legislation and this Privacy Policy.
