IMPORTANT NOTE FOR INDIVIDUAL USERS (meaning not affiliated with a school district): If you are an individual user and under 13 years of age, please get parent/guardian consent before using our platform (COPPA states that "where a school has contracted with an operator to collect personal information from students for the use and benefit of the school, and for no other commercial purpose, the operator is not required to obtain consent directly from parents").
Here at MajorClarity, LLC. (“MajorClarity”, “we”, “us”, “our”), we know that users care about what data we are collecting and how personal information is used and shared. The privacy and protection of our users is of the utmost important to us.
WHAT INFORMATION / DATA DO WE COLLECT?
Information You Provide to Us:
We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you create an account, manage your user profile, participate in any interactive features of the Services, request customer support or otherwise communicate with us. The types of information we may collect include your name, email address, ratings of test-drives, classes you have taken, personality test results, resumes, posts and comments, and/or messages between users.
By creating a MajorClarity Profile, you warrant and represent that you own the content posted by you. You certify that any information you upload to your profile is accurate and your own original work or that you own the intellectual property rights to the Content.
Information We Collect Automatically When You Use the Services:
When you access or use our Services, we automatically collect information, for analytical purposes, that includes:
Device Information: We collect device-specific information when you access our Services from a mobile device, including your hardware model, operating system and version, unique device identifiers, mobile network information and country.
Use Information: We collect information about your use of the Services, including the type of browser you use, access times, pages viewed, app usage activity, interactions with other users, your IP address and the page you visited before navigating to our Services.
Information We Collect From Other Sources:
We may also collect information on you from other sources, if for instance you sign up for a MajorClarity account through your school or district and your district utilizes an SIS integration.
HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION / DATA WE COLLECT?
We may use information about you for various purposes, including to:
· Provide, maintain and improve our Services;
· Provide and deliver the products and services you request and send you related information;
· Send you communications about products, services, offers, promotions, rewards, and events offered by MajorClarity, and provide news and information about MajorClarity (i.e. updates, changes, etc.);
· Send you technical notices, updates, security alerts and support and administrative messages;
· Respond to your comments, questions and requests and provide customer service;
· Monitor and analyze trends, usage and activities in connection with our Services;
· Personalize and improve the Services and provide content, suggested and/or recommended connections or features that match user profiles or activities;
· Process and deliver contest entries and rewards;
· Link or combine with information we get from others to help understand your needs and provide you with better service; and
· Carry out any other purpose for which the information was collected.
MajorClarity is based in the United States and the information we collect is governed by U.S. law. By accessing or using the Services or otherwise providing information to us, you consent to the processing and transfer of information in the U.S. and in and to other countries.
WILL WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION / DATA?
MajorClarity does not and will not sell our users' information or data to third parties.
We do, however, allow users to connect with post-secondary educational and/or employment opportunities through our platform, since it is intended to help students explore what they want to do after secondary education.
Employers and post-secondary institutions will eventually (not yet, but within the coming years) have the ability to post opportunities or events that students will be able to respond to, RSVP for, or submit information to -- if they are interested (examples include: information nights for colleges, or internships for employers). Students are in complete control of this process and the post-secondary institutions and/or employers that they engage with.
Users can opt-out of connecting with institutions and employers they are interested in at anytime, although most users see this as a value-add and have expressed such. Users who do not opt-out grant us a limited license to connect them with institutions and employers they engage with and consent to being connected.
Lastly, we also do not allow any users under the age of 13 to be connected with institutions or employers, even if they desire so, in compliance with COPPA.
IS MY INFORMATION SECURE?
MajorClarity takes the security of our users information and data very seriously. Reasonable security measures are in place to help protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the data under MajorClarity's control.
When the Service is accessed using a supported web browser, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology protects information using both server authentication and data encryption to help ensure that data are safe, secure, and available only to authorized users. MajorClarity also encrypts communication between its application server and database server to mitigate risk in the event of a security incident. Finally, we require unique account identifiers and passwords that must be entered each time a user initiates a session, and we monitor platform usage for suspicious behavior.
These safeguards help to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data protection and accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of data. The Internet, however, is not perfectly secure and MajorClarity shall not be responsible for security breaches not reasonably within its control. In the event of any security incidents, MajorClarity will be completely transparent with affected users.
CAN I ASK FOR MY DATA?
Yes, of course students and/or parents can access for their data at any time for any reason (i.e. to verify or correct personal information, etc.), just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW LONG WILL YOU HOLD ONTO MY DATA?
After account deletion or deactivation, MajorClarity may hold onto user information for alumni tracking for schools, as well as data backups and archives. If you would like your data deleted immediately, please email us at email@example.com.
