IMPORTANT NOTE: The vast majority of our users are 13 years of age or older. Users that are under 13 years of age will have several account restrictions that differ from our main privacy policy, in place to ensure COPPA compliance. Additionally, if you are under 13 years of age, please get parent/guardian consent before using our platform.

 

PRIVACY POLICY:

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.

By accessing or using our services, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy. Remember that your use of MajorClarity’s Services is at all times subject to the Terms of Service, which incorporates this Privacy Policy.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make material changes, we will notify you via email of the changes that have been made. We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you access the Services to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy.

 

WHAT DOES THIS PRIVACY POLICY COVER?

This Privacy Policy explains how MajorClarity collects and uses information from its Services' users, including our treatment of personally identifiable information. This policy does not apply to websites or practices of companies that MajorClarity does not own or control, or to individuals that MajorClarity does not employ or manage, including any third party applications that we may integrate with, utilize, or recommend.

 

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;

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.

When users identify an institution or an employer as an interest, we share that user’s account, and the ability to message that user, with said institution or employer. We will never connect users to post-secondary institutions or employers that users have not first expressed interest and consented to the option of being connected.

Users can opt-out of having their information shared 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 express interest in 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.

Please note: In some places on our platform, MajorClarity will link to websites of third parties (for instance, college websites). MajorClarity is not responsible for the content of any links, or any products, services or other materials relating to any linked site, or any link contained in a linked site. These links to these sites are not an endorsement of any of the content, products or services appearing on such sites. By using these third-party websites you may be agreeing to their terms or visitor agreements. We encourage you to review their privacy policy and terms of use, and you agree to release MajorClarity from any damages that you may incur, and agree not to assert any claims against them, arising from your use of these third-party sites or from your purchase or use of any third-party provided product or service.

 

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 hello@majorclarity.com.

 

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 hello@majorclarity.com.

 

WHAT ABOUT SUCCESSOR ENTITIES?

If we sell, divest or transfer the business or a portion of our business, your information may be transferred in connection with such a transaction. We may also transfer your personal information in the course of mergers, acquisitions, bankruptcies, dissolutions, reorganizations, liquidations, similar transactions or proceedings involving all or a portion of our business. In either case, this Privacy Policy will become binding upon the new owner of the information until/unless amended.

As stated previously, we do reserve the right to change our privacy policy, but in the event we do so, we will notify users by email immediately.
