College Central Network's Privacy Policy

College Central Network, Inc. ("College Central Network" or "CCN") is committed to the responsible management of personal information of users ("User" or "Users" or "you") and abides by all rules, both ethical and legal, with respect to the use of such information. We strictly adhere to all industry guidelines, and are continuously monitoring and enhancing how we manage the use and security of your information to uphold your rights.

This privacy statement discloses the type of information we collect and store about our Users, our usage policy, and who to contact with questions or concerns you may have.

College Central Network's technology is utilized by over 650 college and university career and employment centers ("CCN Client Schools") to manage student, alumni and employer/recruiter data and to automate and web-enable their career/employment center functions and processes.

Job seekers attending thousands of colleges and universities who are not CCN Client Schools also utilize College Central Network's free, web-based services.

If a career/employment center is powered by CCN's technology and therefore a CCN Client School, they have entered into a legal agreement with CCN, and their career/employment center staff and administrators will have the ability to access personal information on CCN belonging to students and alumni of their respective schools, as well as that of employers/recruiters who recruit at their schools. This access includes, without limitation, the ability to send emails to users and, if authorized by job seekers, to refer or forward résumés and/or career portfolios to employers seeking to hire job seekers from their school.

CCN Client School career/employment centers and the activities and practices of their staff and administrators are not subject to this Privacy Policy, and CCN is not responsible for what they do with personal information about students, alumni and employers/recruiters which is available or accessible to them on or through their CCN technology. If you have specific questions regarding the privacy practices and policies of your school's career/employment center with respect to your personal information, we recommend that you contact them directly. The career/employment center contact information is available to all users once you are logged into your CCN user account, and lists both the school's email address and phone number.

We may make content or services from other web sites available to you from links located on CCN. These other web sites are not subject to this Privacy Policy. We recommend that you review the privacy policy at each such web site to determine how that site protects your privacy.

Personally Identifiable Information Collected by CCN

CCN requires that you provide your name, address, telephone number, and email address on the registration form, but does not disclose this information to any outside third parties unless otherwise specifically stated within this Privacy Policy. If you do not want to provide this information, you cannot use our web site.

Students/Alumni

If you are a registered user on CCN and your school is a CCN Client School, you will have the option of having your information available only to your school, or you may also allow it to be searched by employers approved by your school if you have uploaded a résumé or career portfolio to our database. You may also receive mailings or emails from your school about upcoming career-related events or job opportunities.

Employers cannot search any personal information whatsoever if you are not attending a CCN Client School. If you have uploaded a résumé or career portfolio to our database and personally chosen to submit or forward it to an employer when applying for a job, this is the only information that will be accessible to employers.

You may also elect whether or not you wish to receive email notifications from CCN of new job postings that match your job search criteria. If you do not wish to receive such mailings after you have registered, you may update the Authorizations section on your registration form. You may also unsubscribe by clicking the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of one of these emails or by contacting us at privacy@collegecentral.com.

CCN will not sell or otherwise make available your personally identifiable information to third parties unrelated to the specific operation of this site, such as companies seeking to contact you with offers of products or services.

We may disclose your personally identifiable information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (1) conform to the law or legal process; (2) protect or defend our rights or property or those of our users; or (3) act as immediately necessary in order to protect the safety of our users or the public or to prevent or mitigate harm.

All CCN users should be aware that when they voluntarily display or distribute personal information (such as their email address, résumé or career portfolio) to others (by applying to job postings, etc.), that information could be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties, for which CCN is not responsible.

Employers

All employers registering on CCN to post jobs on EmployerCentral.com are required to submit valid email, phone number, and postal addresses to utilize our services. You may receive periodic mailings from us with information on new services or products. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, please let us know by contacting us at privacy@collegecentral.com. If you have already provided this information and would like for us to remove it from our files, please contact us at privacy@collegecentral.com. We will use reasonable efforts to delete your information from our existing files.

Other Information Collected Automatically

For each visitor to College Central Network, our Web server automatically recognizes your domain, the type of Internet browser you are using, the type of computer operating system you are using, and the domain name of the Web site from which you linked to our site. This non-personally identifiable information is collected as a matter of course during the website viewing process.

Updating Account Information

You may change or correct your personal information on CCN at any time. To do so, simply log in to your CCN account, go to your profile, and edit the information you have submitted.

Aggregated User Data

We collect and monitor data and information about the activities of our Users on the CCN collectively. We only use such data anonymously and in the aggregate. This data is not used to track or monitor personally identifiable information of individual Users. We gather and monitor this data to analyze trends, administer the Site, identify Users when they visit the Site, track Users' movements on the site and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We may share this aggregate information with our partners so that they too may understand our User base and CCN usage patterns, but only on a collective, aggregated basis and in a manner that does not reveal any personally identifiable information about any individual User.

Cookies

Cookies are small text files recorded on a User's hard drive that are employed by many web sites to enhance the users' Web viewing experience. Cookies cannot damage user files, nor can they read information from a User's hard drive. Cookies allow sites and advertisers to "remember" Users across pages of a site and across multiple visits to a site. Cookies themselves do not personally identify Users, although they do identify a User's computer. CCN uses cookies for remembering User preferences and current session information. Because of our use of cookies, we can deliver faster service, more consistent, updated results, and a more personalized site experience.

Security

The CCN account containing your registration information, profile and résumé is password protected, so only you (or third parties you provide your password to) can access your account. All personally identifiable information CCN collects about you is stored on limited-access servers. CCN has technical, administrative and physical security measures and safeguards in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our direct control. While we are committed to placing reasonable and appropriate safeguards to protecting your information against foreseeable risks, no computer system or information can ever be fully protected against every possible hazard, and we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not be able to circumvent those safeguards or use your personal information for improper purposes.

Privacy Policy Changes

CCN may deem it necessary or appropriate from time to time to modify this privacy policy to reflect changes in the way it collects or uses information or changes in privacy-related laws, regulations or industry standards. Accordingly, CCN reserves the right to change this privacy statement at any time by posting the revised policy on CCN. Information will be handled according to the privacy statement in effect at the time the information is used. Your continued use of CCN following the posting of changes to this Privacy Policy will mean you accept those changes.

You must provide your name, complete street address, city, state, zip code, phone number, and email address. We will use reasonable efforts to delete this information from our existing files.
