Information collection, use and sharing
Northeastern is the sole owner of information collected on this site. Northeastern only has access to/collect information that visitors to njc.edu voluntarily provide to Northeastern via email or other, direct contact from visitors.

Electronic communications policy
Northeastern’s policy is to guide usage of all forms of digital communication, including email, internet services, texting, voicemail, audio and video conferencing, and fax messages that are sent or received by faculty, staff, students, and other authorized users of Northeastern resources. In general, Northeastern provides various forms of digital communication for teaching, learning and college operations. All records created through digital communication equipment provided by Northeastern are the property of the college. People who are authorized to use email and voicemail provided by Northeastern may make limited personal use of those media, as long as there is no direct cost to the college.
All digital communication at Northeastern must meet the standards of conduct, laws, and regulations published in such official Northeastern, state, and federal documents as the Northeastern Catalog, Northeastern Student Code of Conduct, any Northeastern faculty handbook, and the Colorado State Employees Handbook.
Northeastern digital communications tools may not be used for commercial purposes, i.e., to send copies of documents in violation of copyright laws, to transmit information that is restricted by laws or regulations, to intimidate, threaten, or harass other individuals, or to interfere with the ability of others to conduct Northeastern business, forge communication so it appears to be from someone else, to get unauthorized access to data, files, or other communication, to breach security measures in order to access electronically stored information in any way, or sending chain letters or jokes of any nature.
Northeastern does not routinely monitor digital communication. Message contents are inspected only to protect health, safety, or security. Still, the contents of email messages can be disclosed as a result of legal discovery, writ, warrant or subpoena, or as a result of a request under the Colorado Open Records Law.
