Privacy Policy

CONCERNED about Privacy?

Protecting your personal information from unauthorized use is the Culver Legion and Culver Summer Schools Alumni Association’s top priority. All areas of the Culver Online Alumni Directory website that contain private information are housed on a secure server utilizing Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 128-bit encryption.

Only you can access and update your personal information, and only verified Culver alumni can view records on the Online Alumni Directory. Also, you can specifically indicate what information will be visible to other alumni by selecting the check boxes on the “Update My Profile” screens. (For example, you could choose to hide your home information and display only your business address.)

If you wish to make none of your contact information available to other alumni via the Online Alumni Directory, please log in, go to the “Update Information” screen, and check the box that reads “Block all records from directory.” Then click the “Update” button. Your information will be immediately blocked from other alumni.

For more information, please read our Policy Agreement below.


The Culver Academies Online Alumni Directory provided by the Culver Legion and the Summer Schools Alumni Association, hereinafter referred to as the Legion and the CSSAA. The online service is specifically designed to facilitate communication among alumni for personal or School-related purposes.


The Legion and CSSAA have taken all reasonable precautions to secure the personal information available through the Online Alumni Directory. The directory is password protected to allow access by registered Culver alumni only. Furthermore, the online community is located on a secure web site that incorporates the latest encryption technology. Although these precautions should effectively protect any personal information available through the online community from abuse or outside interference, a certain degree of privacy risk is faced any time information is shared over the Internet. Therefore, through the Profile Management feature of the Culver Alumni Directory web site, you have the ability to control the nature and amount of information available to other alumni.


To safeguard the operation of the Online directory, the Legion and CSSAA have adopted the guidelines and policies that are used by the Culver Academies to govern conduct, particularly conduct that occurs in an online environment. As members of the extended Culver community, alumni are expected to adhere to policies established through the Honor System, the Judiciary Committee's Standards of Conduct, the Culver's Information and Technology and Communication Policies and the guidelines set forth in the Culver's Ethics in Computer Usage policy.

Also, information available through the Culver Online Alumni Directory may be used for specific personal and school-related purposes only. Use of the online community for any commercial, public or political mailing is strictly prohibited. Prohibited uses of the information in the online community include but are not limited to:

  1. Advertising and solicitations for commercial services
  2. Cold-calling of any kind or mass-mailings (sometimes known as "spamming")
  3. Activities that are illegal or fraudulent
  4. Uses that inaccurately imply endorsement, approval or sponsorship by the Culver Academies, The Legion, CSSAA, or their officers
  5. Uses that can be confused with official communications of Culver Academies, the Legion, CSSAA, its Alumni Associations, or their officers
  6. Mailings of any kind using a false identification
  7. Activities that violate other alumni users' privacy such as granting access to the system or distributing information obtained from the services to non-alumni
  8. Posting of obscene materials or use of obscene or vulgar language, as defined by Culver, hate speech or harassment, or use of abusive or threatening language of any kind, will constitute a violation of these policies governing use of the Culver Online Alumni Directory.
  9. Creation of profane, fraudulent, or obscene aliases.


The Legion and CSSAA have asked that the Academies be responsible for screening communications, and will not actively monitor the use of the Culver Online Alumni Directory. Culver, The Academies, reserves the right to reorganize or delete any postings. Culver expects community members to exhibit the same level of respect for others in this forum as in any other Culver-related venue. For this reason, it is essential that the alumni users of the directory report any abuses or misuse of the directory to the Alumni office. If the Alumni office, acting as the agent for the Legion and CSSAA, determines that a user's participation in the online directory may create a liability for Culver, the Legion, or the CSSAA or the school or that the user has violated the policies set forth herein, the Alumni office, in consultation with Legion and CSSAA officers, reserves the right, at their sole discretion, to take actions against the user. The Legion And CSSAA reserve the right to expel a user and to deny a user further access to the Online Alumni Directory if such user violates these policies or any applicable laws or regulations. Culver may deny access to the online community to any individual at any time.


The reliability of the information available through the online directory is largely dependent upon the actions of alumni registrants. The Legion and CSSAA can make no representations about the accuracy, reliability, completeness or timeliness of this information.

The Legion and CSSAA does not warrant that the online community web site will operate error-free or that the site and its server are free of computer viruses or other harmful material. To the fullest extent permitted by law, the Legion and CSSAA disclaim all warranties, including the warranties of merchantability, non-infringement and fitness for particular purpose. In no event shall the Legion, CSSAA, or the Academies be liable for any damages whatsoever, including, without limitation, incidental, consequential or punitive damages resulting from the use of or inability to use information or materials available on the online directory web site.

By using the Online Alumni Directory web site, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Legion, CSSAA, the Academies, and their respective agents from and against any and all losses, claims, damages, costs and expenses that may arise from your use of the online directory web site or your breach of these policies. The Alumni office will provide notice to you of any such action or claim, and reserves the right to participate, at your expense, in the investigation, settlement and defense of any such action or claim.


The Alumni office, acting as the agent for the Legion and CSSAA, and the Alumni Associations reserve the right to discontinue any or all online services at any time or to revise the terms and policies of this acceptable use agreement. If the policies are revised, the updated policies will be posted on the directory web site.
