How We Ensure Your Privacy

The Youthhood Web site is housed at the University of Minnesota where strict measures are taken to ensure the privacy of information submitted by any user of the Web site. The following security measures are used to ensure the privacy of your information and the information submitted by your students:

  • We require each person has their own e-mail address to confirm their registration. Although this may be cumbersome for you, it's an essential means of ensuring each individual's privacy.
  • We require a secure password to register. Anyone registering on the site is required to use a secure password, based on our strict criteria (at least 6 characters, using numbers and letters, case-sensitive, no spaces).
  • We do not share the information you submit. The information collected through the registration process, as well as through any of the activities on the Youthhood Web site, will not be shared with anyone nor used for any purpose other than specifically stated on any given page.
  • We encrypt all data you submit. Any page that requests information from you — the registration page, the login page, and any activity pages — is securing the information that you submit over the Internet. Data encryption can be verified by the appearance of a lock on your Web browser.
  • Our Web server is securely configured. All records submitted by youth and adults are located on our secure Web server that is configured according to UMN security guidelines and standards, and maintained by the Office of Information Technology.
