What personally identifiable information does Priory Campus collect?
If you subscribe to the Priory Campus newsletter, Priory Campus saves the following information;
- your fullname
- your email address
- your telephone number
- your subsciption preferences
Your password is also saved in encrypted form using the MD5 hash technique.
|MD stands for message digest. MD5 is an algorithm which takes an input of any length, and outputs a message digest of a fixed length (128-bit, 32 characters), made up from hexadecimal values.
OK, now in English: MD5 is basically a way of taking a bunch of characters (be they digits, alphabetic or other), called the input string, and changing them to a 32 character long bunch of characters, called the message digest or the hash of the inputted string, made up from only hexadecimal characters (the digits 0-9 and the letters a-f).
This means that whatever the length of the inputted string, MD5 will always create something which is 32 characters long, with only hexadecimal characters. The message digest will have no spaces, or quotation marks or anything other than 0-9's and a-f's in the outputted message digest. MD5 is an extremely useful and powerful tool but perhaps the most important fact is that MD5 creates a one way hash so even administrators of this site cannot see your password.
