Use of Cookies

The Stony Brook University Web site may use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Stony Brook University pages, or register with Stony Brook University site or services, a cookie helps Stony Brook University to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Stony Brook University Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Stony Brook University features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Stony Brook University services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

Stony Brook University secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Stony Brook University secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

Refund Policy

Participants enrolled in a program or class may transfer or withdraw until 7 days prior to the program start date. Transfers or refunds within 7 days, but before, the program's start date will only be issued if a waiting list is active for the program and must be authorized by the Program Coordinator. Once the program has begun only a pro-rated credit will be issued. Programs, camps or classes may be cancelled if minimum registration numbers are not obtained prior to the start date. In this case a full refund will be issued. If a class is cancelled by Stony Brook University, or due to weather it will be rescheduled at the next available time.

For faculty/staff and graduate students there is no longer a pro-rated membership. Monthly membership options are now available. Refunds will be assessed with a $25.00 processing fee.
