Protection of Personal Information

When an individual makes a donation, purchases a product, sends an application, or otherwise contacts Oglethorpe University, we may ask you for personal contact information such as name, address, and email address. This information may be used to contact you regarding the information or services that have been requested.

Neither Oglethorpe University nor our agents sell any collected information to third parties.

In addition to personal contact information, when an individual makes a donation or payment to Oglethorpe University we may ask for information, such as your billing address and credit card number. We have taken measures to secure both your information and our physical premises. We exercise care in providing safe transmission of your information from your personal computer to our servers (unless sent by a means outside of our control, such as e-mail). Your billing information is not shared with other organizations. Your credit card number is not retained once your transaction has been authorized and processed, except in the case of payment plans or recurring payment processing.

You can request changes to billing information you have provided us by sending a letter to:
