In more detail:
- Cookies: We don't gather personal information about you
while you browse. The web site uses a session cookie (deleted when
you close your browser) to associate your browser session with your
registered user account. A second cookie (lasting 6 months) is
used only to remember the ID of the last person who logged into the
Official MBA Guide from your computer. These
cookies cannot be used for advertising or activity
tracking. Your cookies merely allows the web site to show you
information specific to your account — such as MBA program pages
you have visited, schools you have contacted through the site, and other data pertaining to your
account, which you can edit.
- User account data: When you register for a free user account,

- Registered User E-mail Address: Your e-mail address is
private. We never provide your address to schools or anyone
else. Schools can contact you only through our anonymous e-mail campaign
system — but not more than twice in a six-month period, and never
after six months since your last login. Only you can provide
your e-mail address to schools by writing to them. When sending a school
a pre-application or data update request, you choose whether to
reveal or hide your email address.
- School Administrator E-mail Addresses: We ask schools to
provide us with both private and public addresses for visitors to send
inquiries. We don't disclose private addresses to anyone; we use them
only to send administrative information and reports about data updates,
search hits, page views, and necessary correspondence.
for features such as expandable and collapsible lists of schools,
checking and unchecking lists of regions on the Search & Rank
page, and validation of form inputs.
That summarizes our policy. Any changes we make will be posted here.
