Blog Policies

Last modified: December 16, 2009

The California State University recognizes and respects the privacy interests of The CSU Voices and Views blog readers and commentators. The CSU is committed to protecting that privacy and keeping users informed about our privacy policy.

Posting Comments

The blog allows you to post comments to each article. Posting a comment is voluntary and requires the following information: a name (either your real name or a screen name of your choice) and the campus you are associated with (if any). Your blog posting will include this information as part of the public discussion.

Entries and comments are entirely the views of the author, and are not necessarily the view of the CSU administration or the CSU Board of Trustees. The CSU is not liable for any damages that may result from the voluntary participation, through entries or comments, in blog discussions.

CSU staff may contact you to provide additional information or invite you to participate in social media discussions.

Cookies and other electronic information

A cookie is a small file that a website transfers to a user’s computer, which may then be stored on its hard drive. Cookies remember you and personalize your web-viewing experience. Don’t want cookies? Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you do not want cookies, you can set your browser to disable or refuse cookies or to alert you when websites use cookies. Doing so should have no effect on your ability to participate in the blog.

When you are surfing the different pages on our blog, your electronic footprints allow our computer to identify your computer using its IP address. Using the IP address, our computer gathers certain information such as to which pages you visited and how long you stayed. None of this information gives us access to your name, your email or other personally identifiable information.

We use this anonymous information to help us figure out what topics readers are most interested in so that we can maintain a strong discussion.

Minimum age of 13 required

We ask that children under 13 years of age to refrain from authoring an entry and to refrain from commenting on any blog.


The blog may host links to other sites having privacy policies that may differ from those of the CSU. The CSU is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any websites to which the blog links.

Revisions of the privacy policy

Please note that this Privacy Policy may change from time to time.  We expect most such changes will be minor.  Regardless, we will post any Privacy Policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice.  Identification of each version of this Privacy Policy will be located at the top of the page by its effective date, and we will keep prior versions of this Privacy Policy in an archive for your review.


If you have any questions about this privacy statement and the privacy practices on this site, please feel free to contact us through our website or write us at:
