Your privacy is critically important to us and we have established a few fundamental principles to protect your privacy:

  • We don't ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don't share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don't store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • We aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what's visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these principles.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Find the Right College and its partner sites (collectively referred to as "Find the Right College") collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Find the Right College's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Find the Right College's visitors use its website. From time to time, Find the Right College may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Find the Right College also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Find the Right College does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Find the Right College's websites choose to interact with Find the Right College in ways that require Find the Right College to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Find the Right College gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who wish to create an account to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in financial transactions with Find the Right College may need to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Find the Right College collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Find the Right College. Find the Right College does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Find the Right College may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Find the Right College may monitor its communities to identify trending content as well as spam and/or abusive behavior. Find the Right College may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Find the Right College does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Find the Right College discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Find the Right College's behalf or to provide services available at Find the Right College's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Find the Right College's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Find the Right College will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Find the Right College discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Find the Right College believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Find the Right College, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Find the Right College and have supplied your email address, Find the Right College may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on in Find the Right College communities that are relevant to you. We primarily use our website to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it after removing personally-identifiable information in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Find the Right College takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
