How does Dollars for Scholars SECURE my personal information?

Dollars for Scholars is committed to properly securing the information we collect online. To help us accomplish this, we take the following steps:

·            We employ internal access controls to ensure that the only people who see your information are those with a need to do so to perform their duties;

·            We train relevant personnel on our privacy and security measures.  Personnel are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations;

·            We physically secure the areas where we hold hard copies of the information we collect online;

·            We regularly back up the information we collect online to insure against loss;

·            We use technical controls to secure the information we collect online as appropriate, including encryption, firewalls and password protections; and

·            We periodically test our security procedures to ensure personnel and technical compliance.

 

Dollars for Scholars follows industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.  No method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, however.  While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

This Privacy Policy applies to data collected on sites administered by Dollars for Scholars only.  The site may contain links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by Dollars for Scholars.  Be aware when you leave our site and read the privacy statements pertaining to other sites you may link to.

Business Transitions

Privacy Protection for Children under Age 13

Dollars for Scholars does not collect personal information through this site from children who are under 13 years old. However, a child of this age may occasionally be eligible for certain programs or services administered through our site, in which case, a parent or legal guardian of such child must provide the child’s personal information to us. The parent or legal guardian must also provide his or her own contact information (e.g., email address, mailing address and phone numbers).  All communications pertaining to the program or service will be sent directly to such parent or legal guardian. The personal information (identifiable or not) of such parent or legal guardian collected is subject to this Privacy Policy.  Further, in certain cases, children under 13 years old may be nominated for certain programs by an adult.  In such cases, the child and the child’s family will be contacted through the mail to complete the application process offline.

Unless otherwise stated herein, this privacy policy applies to a child’s information that we collect from a parent or legal guardian, except that (1) we do not share identifiable information of a child with any third party (other than the Program sponsors, or our agent or Service Providers, for the purposes stated in this Privacy Policy), (2) we will only send our promotional communications or newsletters to the parent or the legal guardian who provided the child’s  information to us, and (3) we do not link or tie, and prohibit third party advertisers from tying or linking, any such child’s identifiable information to log files, cookies, or other tracking mechanisms used on the site.
