CareerWise Privacy Notice
This Privacy Notice discloses the privacy practices for www.CareerwiseDC.org and Career Wise’s other online platforms (collectively, the “Online Platforms”). This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website. It will notify you of the following:
Information You Provide
We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you.
When you apply for positions through our Online Platform, we collect information that you voluntarily supply to us including your name, address, email, mobile number, date of birth, high school, grade level, expected graduation year, extra-curricular activities, equal opportunity information, contact information and communication preferences for your parent or guardian, and your resume and cover letter.
We may use the information collected from you:
To the extent we are able to do so, we may link your non-personally identifiable information with your personally identifiable information.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us.
If you provide us with contact information, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about new services, or changes to this Privacy Notice.
A cookie is a small file placed on the hard drive of your computer. If you wish to limit, block or delete cookies from our Online Platform – or any other website – you can use your browser to do this. Each browser is different so check the ‘Help’ menu of your particular browser or the browser settings for your mobile device to learn how to change your cookie preferences. If you do this, however, certain features of our website may not work correctly or cannot be provided to you.
Except as disclosed in this Privacy Notice, we do not share, rent or sell personally identifiable information you have given us to any third party without your permission. We provide prospective employers with some of your information that you have provided to us in order to be considered for hiring by these prospective employers. We may also share your information with your school counselor. We rely on service providers to help us deliver our services. We may provide your personal information to service providers or contractors to perform functions on our behalf, including, but not limited to, communicating news; performing Online Platform or services development or maintenance; providing functionality or other services for our Online Platform and our services; sending postal mail, email or other communications; removing outdated and repetitive information from our lists; analyzing our data, developing, enhancing, marketing or providing any of our services; or assisting us with other marketing and support functions.
During the course of our business we may also share with third parties aggregated demographic and statistical information that is not personally identifiable.
We may also disclose an individual’s personal information:
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our Online Platform:
Electronic Communication. By using the Online Platforms and providing personal information through registration on your profile page, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Online Platforms. If we learn of a security system’s breach, you consent that we may attempt to notify you electronically by posting a notice on or through the Online Platforms or sending an email to you.
Our Online Platform is not intended for children under the age of 13. In particular, we do not knowingly solicit or collect personal information on our website from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we learn that, despite these measures, a child under the age of 13 has submitted personally identifiable information to us through our Online Platform, we will take reasonable measures to delete such information from our records and to not use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required by law).
We are committed to protecting the security of any personal information you provide to us. We maintain commercially reasonable safeguards to maintain the security and privacy of personal information that you provide to us. In spite of these protections, we cannot guarantee the security of any data submitted over or stored on the internet. After your information reaches us, however, it is stored on servers protected by procedures and technology designed to block reasonably foreseeable intrusions by unauthorized third parties. After you have submitted your information online to us, we recommend that you end your browser session before leaving your computer.
Do Not Track
Some web browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature. This feature lets you tell websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. These features are not yet uniform across browsers nor is there a common agreement about how to implement these features or interpret user intent. Our services are not currently set up to respond to those signals.
Privacy Notice Changes
We may amend this Privacy Notice from time to time. Should this Privacy Notice be amended in any way, changes will be posted to this Online Platform. As we may make changes from time to time without notifying you, we suggest that you periodically consult this Privacy Notice. Your continued use of our Online Platform or our services after the effective date of any modification to the Privacy Notice will be deemed to be your agreement to the changed terms.
If you have any questions about this privacy notice, you should contact us immediately via email.
