What We Collect
At TheSororityLife.com, we only collect the information you choose to give us. We process your information when necessary to provide you with the services that you have requested. All the information we require is the minimum amount of personal information that is necessary to fulfill the purpose of your interaction with us. Without your information, we cannot provide you with the services you have requested. We do not sell your data to third parties, and we only use it as this Privacy Statement describes.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
We may directly collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools, to help us measure the traffic and usage trends of our services. These tools collect information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit on our site and other information that allows us to improve your experience.
Who we share your data with
The data collected is not shared with outside organizations. National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) and The Sorority Life are devoted to protecting the data provided to us. In order to protect the data given to us, we do not sell user information to third party organizations.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
The data collected regarding your personal information is used to fulfill the services you have selected. We are committed to providing you content that is relevant and interesting to you. In order to do that we may request your contact information to send you information such as our newsletter.
How we protect your data
Thesororitylife.com and National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) have taken preventative measures to ensure the safety of your information. We have taken steps to protect your personal data from unauthorized access, unlawful processing and accidental loss. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is 100% secure. Although we do take preventative steps to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted via the internet, therefore any transmission of data is at your own risk.
What data breach procedures we have in place
We follow industry standards on information security management to safeguard your personal information. NPC and The Sorority Life take preventive caution through secure information collecting to ensure the safety of user information.
