We Respect Your Privacy
We respect your privacy and security, and pledge to carefully guard any personal information we get from you. We offer athletic scholarship information, resources and services, all designed to help you run a successful campaign to get an athletic scholarship. If we ask for information from you, we do so only to allow us to deliver the services or products you are requesting.
We hate spam, and will never share any of your personal information with anyone else. We don’t sell or rent our customer lists to other businesses, so anything you reveal to us stays with us.
What Information Do We Collect?
When you utilize the Recruit-Me website we collect information about you in three ways: directly from you, from our Web server logs, and with cookies.
Information You Supply
If you request something from us, such as a subscription to our eZine or access to our free information, we ask for your name and e-mail address so we can electronically deliver what you’ve requested. If you make a purchase from us, our shopping cart service asks for your name, address, e-mail address, and relevant payment information. We use this information to process payment, to deliver your purchase, and to provide ongoing recruiting hints and tips to help you get the most out of your purchase.
Server Log Information
When you visit the Recruit-Me website, your computer’s browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, FireFox, etc.) automatically discloses certain information, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, the time of your visit, and the referring location (e.g., the Site or page that offered a link to a Recruit-Me page). The Recruit-Me web server, like most other websites, records this basic information about visits to our site, but there is never any personal information collected in our server logs.
- We record whether you were referred to our website by one of our Recruit-Me affiliates.
- We temporarily keep track of any discount coupons or offers you’re utilizing on your visit.
- We temporarily record the contents of your shopping cart, allowing you to leave and return later to complete your purchase without finding an empty cart.
- We permanently record who you are ONLY if you ask us to “remember you” so you don’t have to reenter your name and address every time you visit our website.
If you don’t allow the Recruit-Me website to store a cookie on your machine, our shopping cart will not work and you will be unable to order from us using your computer. In that case, the only way for you to order would be to phone our office.
How Do We Protect Your Information?
The privacy and protection of your personal information is vitally important to us. Recruit-Me does not make personal information available to any third parties without your permission. When you purchase online, the Recruit-Me site itself never collects or stores any personal information. All personal and financial information is collected on a secure page by our shopping cart operator,1ShoppingCart. They and our third party payment processor, PayPal, use secure servers and SSL to protect your credit card number and all personal information during payment processing. Neither 1ShoppingCart nor PayPal ever divulge any of your payment information, such as account numbers or bank routing numbers, to anyone.
SSL is short for Secure Sockets Layer, a protocol developed by Netscape for secure transmission of private information over the Internet. SSL works by using a private key to encrypt data that is transmitted over the SSL connection. Both Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer browsers support SSL, and web sites use SSL when users transmit confidential information such as credit card numbers. Web pages that require an SSL connection start with https: instead of http. SSL uses 128 bit encryption within the United States. For more information on SSL, please visit the Netscape web site:http://home.netscape.com/security/techbriefs/ssl.html
Who Has Access to the Information?
Recruit-Me does not rent out our mailing list, and will not willfully disclose any individually identifiable information about you to any third party without first receiving your permission. When you are at the Recruit-Me website and are asked for personal information, you will be sharing that information only with Recruit-Me.
How Do You Correct Inaccuracies?
If you sign up for a service, such as the Recruit-Me Newsletter, we may send you a confirmation e-mail confirming your information. The message will be sent to the address that you supplied us and will describe ways for you to change your information, or to unsubscribe from anything you don’t want to receive.
