The Scope NYC Editorial Responsibility and Links to Other Websites

In its commitment to transparency and responsible digital stewardship, The Scope NYC outlines its editorial responsibility and the dynamics of links to other websites through this comprehensive statement.

Editorial Responsibility

The Scope NYC assumes full editorial responsibility for official The Scope NYC websites and online resources associated with departments, divisions, and units. These are defined as the designated official web pages or online materials under The Scope NYC’s purview. In these instances, The Scope NYC functions as the content provider, distinguishing itself from a content-neutral Internet Service Provider (ISP). However, within the broader The Scope NYC domain, encompassing “” and the range of Internet protocol addresses, there exist web pages and online materials over which The Scope NYC exercises no editorial control. These include the content of individual faculty members, students, class sites, and materials, as well as those of student organizations not formally integrated into The Scope NYC. In such cases, The Scope NYC operates as a content-neutral ISP and disclaims responsibility for the content, privacy practices, or policies of those entities.

Links to Other Websites

The Scope NYC’s website may feature links to other public or private entities’ websites. The Scope NYC explicitly disclaims responsibility for the privacy practices or content of these external websites. Users are encouraged to read the individual privacy policy statements of each website when leaving The Scope NYC’s server.

Information Collection

When users access the official The Scope NYC website(s), certain information is automatically collected, primarily routing (client) information and essential technical information. Additionally, nonessential technical information, optional information, and data sent via email or online forms may be collected. This information is handled securely, and for applications processing credit card payments, the data is encrypted for maximum security.


The Scope NYC’s website may place a “cookie” on a user’s computer, unless the browser is set to reject cookies. These cookies help recognize users on return visits, enabling a personalized experience based on preferences or information provided in prior sessions. Cookie information may include IP address, browser type, operating system, date and time, website visit history, and customization details.

Use of Collected Information

Routing information facilitates the transmission of requested web pages, while essential and nonessential technical information helps respond to requests appropriately and plan website improvements. Optional information enables tailored services, forwarding messages or inquiries to relevant entities, and aids in website planning. The collected information is used primarily in a statistical summary format for assessing site content and server performance. Summary information may be shared with business partners as needed.

Online Advertising

Google remarketing cookies may be used on specific sections of the website, allowing customized advertising across the internet based on user interactions. These cookies do not identify users.

Choice to Provide Information

While there is no legal requirement to provide information, certain aspects of the website, such as routing and essential technical information, are essential for functionality. Failure to provide optional information may limit access to specific features or services.

Data Retention and Security

The Scope NYC may retain information indefinitely but typically deletes transaction routing information within 60 days after transmission. In cases of security breaches, logs may be retained for investigation and forwarded to law enforcement agencies. The collected information is primarily used in a statistical format and shared with business partners as summarized data.
