The most important function of the Mizzou Alumni Association (MAA) is keeping alumni connected to MU and to each other. Consequently, the MAA compiles both public and private information about all alumni, both members and non-members. This notice is to inform you of how we use the information we collect and how you can limit that use.
The MAA collects information about MU alumni from various sources:
Our database is for the sole use of MU. We do not sell, rent or trade alumni information with any organization that isn't directly affiliated with us.
What kind of electronic information does MAA collect?
When a user logs on to our Web site, mizzou.com, MAA's Web server automatically recognizes only the consumer's domain name (where possible), not the e-mail address. We collect e-mail addresses when users submit them, either through an address update form, correspondence or by listing them on application or registration forms. We also on occasion hire services that specialize in researching lost or missing e-mail addresses for alumni (these services send notices to alumni with addresses in the public domain notifying alumni of our intent to add their e-mail address to our database).
MAA maintains a list of e-mail addresses so that we may keep interested alumni informed about MAA and MU events. Therefore, we share e-mail addresses with regional alumni chapters, the Development office and we compile them for our electronic newsletter, @Mizzou. If you do not wish to receive @Mizzou or any other e-mail correspondence, you may opt out by sending an email to email@example.com.
The MAA’s site also collects aggregate information about which pages alumni access or visit and any other information volunteered by a user, such as survey responses. This helps us evaluate and improve our site, and it is solely for use within the association.
MAA does not sell, or trade e-mail addresses or other electronic alumni information with any other organization for any reason.
How Does MAA use contact information?
We use contact data to send you information about MAA (MIZZOU Magazine, chapter event notices, newsletters, etc) and promotional materials. Your contact information is also used to contact you when necessary. From time to time MU engages in telemarketing to raise funds, this is conducted through MU's Mizzou Annual Fund office or a vendor partner of MAA.
Our site provides you the opportunity to opt out of receiving information from us and/or our affiliates.
To remove your information from our database, eliminate future communications or to no longer receive our services, you can select one of these options:
- Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
