The people who bring
you My.LaSalle University Portal (MLS) are committed to respecting
your privacy and to protecting it within the constraints imposed
by Philippine law.
In this document, DLSU pertains to De
La Salle University.
Information you supply to My.LaSalle is used only to personalize
your web page. We do not share nor sell your personal information.
Your personal information is not disclosed unless such action
is necessary to comply with the Philippine law, to protect
DLSU property, to enforce DLSU policy or when you authorized
it being the owner of the information.
Commitment to Privacy
My.LaSalle is your personal portal to De La Salle University
resources on the World Wide Web (WWW). Whether you use the web in
your daily work and educational activities, or are just an
occasional visitor, we hope that My.LaSalle helps you build
a personalized set of pages that makes each trip to the web
a powerful, safe, and enjoyable experience.
We are committed to respecting your privacy. We make every
effort to protect your personal information and not to intrude
on your email and Web space without your continued permission.
In addition, you need to know that protecting your privacy
is also your responsibility. The My.LaSalle log-in opens a
world of personal information that you must close when you
are finished. When you log in to My.LaSalle using your My.LaSalle
User ID, you automatically have access to other My.LaSalle
User-ID protected resources, outside of My.LaSalle. This convenience
comes with a warning. Because these resources may contain
personal information, it is imperative that you completely
close all web browser windows when you leave your computer.
Also, you should not share your User ID, password and other
types of authorization to anyone.

Caveats and Limitations
The limits to which we can accomplish our goal of honoring
your privacy are spelled out in the sections below.
Whenever you browse the web, all sorts of information are
gathered about where you have been and what you have looked
at. These information can be found on:
- The computers you use (in browser history, cache, cookies,
and other files).
It is a good habit to develop to purge the cache (right
before you exit from your web browser program) and the Recycle
Bin (of the Windows desktop). These ensure that all information
gathered during your session are deleted. This is strongly
recommended when you use publicly accessible computers.
- The servers you visit (in log files that collect IP addresses,
time information, and names of pages visited).
- Other servers that take part in the Internet infrastructure
and services (e.g., cache servers, firewall server, and
Use of System Log Information
The DLSU computers that serve My.LaSalle keep a minimum set
of system logs that allow us to tune and protect the service
and to determine general usage patterns. We do not keep the
information any longer than necessary to meet these objectives.
The information we collect consist of:
- The name of the Internet domain from which you access
- The date and time a DLSU web site is visited
- The Internet address (IP number) of the web site from
which you linked
- Selected information (like My.LaSalle User ID, browser
type, and affiliation) in My.LaSalle logs that can help
when there are problems to be resolved
Use of IP Address
The IP (Internet Protocol) address information does not identify
you personally, but rather identifies the computer you are
using and may even identify your general location .
We use IP Addresses to:
- Help diagnose problems with our servers
- Administer the My.LaSalle University portal
- Gather demographic information about our users in general
Use of My.LaSalle Cookies
Cookies are pieces of information that a web site transfers
to the computer you use and may be placed on its hard disk
for record-keeping purposes. Cookies are used by My.LaSalle
to make use of the DLSU log-in procedure.
They are not currently used to track your usage, nor are
they used in any other way at this time.
Information My.LaSalle Keeps
The only information that My.LaSalle keeps are those required
to personalize your pages. We do not keep track of what pages
you visit except to deliver a customized service or to provide
a personalized service you have requested (for example, to
display new announcements).
Personal Information You Choose to
Share Via E-mail and Web Forms
When you send us information that identify you in an e-mail
message or when filling out a web form, we use the information
to respond to your requests. We may forward your e-mail or
form to other DLSU employees who are better able to respond
to your questions or comments.
Personal Information You Choose to
Share Via other Internet Exchanges
Information you share with others through chat sessions,
e-mail exchanges, or bulletin board discussions can be collected
and used by others. You are responsible for maintaining the
secrecy of your passwords and personalization information.
Please be very careful and responsible whenever you are on-line.
The general recommendation is not to disclose your personal
information as much as possible. Personal information are
used to verify one's identity (e.g., for credit cards, bank
accounts, and so on). You may not have a credit card now but
you might have one in the future.
Exceptions for Disclosing Personalized
DLSU does not disclose your personalized information unless,
acting under a good faith, believe that such action is:
- Required by the Philippine law
- For protecting DLSU property
- For enforcing DLSU policy
- Authorized by you as the owner of the information
Individual use of information, therefore, may be kept in
the case where there is legitimate cause to suspect that illegal
behavior is taking place.

attempts to upload or change information or otherwise cause
damage to the My.LaSalle University portal.
