    Information Gathering

    We use IP addresses (the Internet address of your computer) to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our web site. CCPE collects information to improve the functionality and content and to monitor performance of our site. For example, we run statistical software to identify which parts of our web site are most heavily used. We do not link IP addresses to any personal information.

    Use of Information

    While aggregate statistical reports on web usage may be generated, no personal information will ever be provided to any third party except as required by law. Any personal information collected is to conduct official university business only.

    Your Social Security Number

    The California Code of Regulations (Section 41201, Title 5) and the Internal Revenue Code (Section 6109) require you to provide the university with your correct Social Security number.
    The university uses your Social Security number to identify your academic records and to collect any debts you may owe to CSULB. The university also uses your Social Security number to file information required by the IRS (see the CSULB catalog or web site). The IRS may penalize any student who does not provide the university with his or her correct Social Security number.


    All CCPE web servers have appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures in place to safeguard and secure all information we collect online. Furthermore, we use encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information.
