Terms of Use

The Juilliard Alumni Online Community is provided by the Office of Alumni Relations and The Juilliard School and is designed to facilitate communication among alumni for personal or School-related purposes.

I. Privacy and Security

The Office of Alumni Relations has taken reasonable precautions to secure the personal information available through the online community. The Juilliard Alumni Online Community is password protected to allow access by registered users only. Although this precaution should help to protect any personal information available through the Juilliard Alumni Online Community from abuse or outside interference, a certain degree of privacy risk is faced any time information is shared over the Internet. Therefore we have provided you with the option to suppress the information fields in your record that you wish to keep private, which will prevent these fields from being viewed by other community members. Participation in the Alumni Online Directory is voluntary: alumni are given the opportunity to opt out of the Directory when they register for Online Community. Once they have opted in, they then have the chance to determine what personal data to display to their classmates on an item-by-item basis by unchecking the “Make Private” checkbox, which defaults to private (that is, “Do Not Display”) for all fields except alumni last names and class years.

The School does give some personally identifiable information to its affinity partners — companies that provide benefits to the alumni community — on a one-time-only basis. Alumni may request at any time to be removed from the mailing list given to Juilliard’s affinity partners by e-mailing the Office of Alumni Relations (alumni@juilliard.edu), or by phone at (212) 799-5000, ext. 344.

II. Policy and Guidelines for Proper Use  

To safeguard the operation of the Juilliard Alumni Online Community, the School has adopted some basic guidelines and policies to govern proper use and conduct, particularly conduct that occurs in an online environment. In addition to the School's policies and guidelines, users of the Juilliard Alumni Online Community must abide by the following specific rules and regulations:

A. Unauthorized copying, reproduction, republishing, uploading, downloading, posting, transmitting or duplicating of any of the material is prohibited. You may download or copy any downloadable materials displayed on the Juilliard Alumni Online Community for home, noncommercial and personal use only; provided, however, that you maintain all copyright, trademark and other notices contained in such material and you agree to abide by all additional copyright notices or restrictions contained in any material accessed through the Juilliard Alumni Online Community.

B. Information available through the Juilliard Alumni Online Community may be used for specific personal and School-approved purposes only.

These terms also apply to any message boards and chat rooms, which are provided by the Juilliard Alumni Online Community as another means of alumni communication.

C. Notes posted to the message boards will remain for 30 days, after which they may be deleted. Juilliard School is not responsible for the content of bulletin boards, and will not routinely monitor content. Juilliard, however, reserves the right to reorganize or delete any postings or add and remove message board topics.

D. User accounts may not be shared, transferred, or sold to other parties, nor are they to be commissioned for use or access by any person or party except the registered alumni user. Additionally, users shall not restrict nor inhibit any other user from enjoying any service on the Juilliard Alumni Online Community.

If the Office of Alumni Relations determines that a user's participation in the Juilliard Alumni Online Community creates a liability for the Office of Alumni Relations or the School or that the user has violated the policies set forth herein or any applicable laws or regulations, the Office of Alumni Relations reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to expel a user and deny further access to the Juilliard Alumni Online Community.
