THE MENTOR NETWORK (“The Network”)
PRIVACY AND SECURITY POLICY – General
The MENTOR Network recognizes the importance of protecting personal information we may collect from users of this website (the “Site”). This Privacy and Security Policy (“Policy”) explains how The Network treats personal and aggregate information The Network collects when you use the Site or access The Network’s services, features, or functions (together, “Services”) through the Site. By accessing or using the Site, you acknowledge that you have read and understood this Policy. From time to time, it may be necessary for The Network to change this Policy, so we suggest that you check here periodically. The Network agrees that any changes will not be retroactively applied and will not alter how we handle previously collected information.
What is Personal Information?
Personal information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity, such as a user’s name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, or other information about activities directly linked to that person, such as browsing activity. Personal information also includes information that you choose to provide to us, such as your employment history, resume information, or other information in connection with your pursuit of an employment or mentoring opportunity through the Site. Our definition of personal information does not include “aggregate” information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of users, from which individual user identities have been removed. In other words, information about how you use the Site may be collected and combined with information about how others use the Site, but no personal information will be included in the resulting data. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and user needs so that we can better consider new Site features and tailor existing features to identified preferences.
Collection of Personal Information
The MENTOR Network collects personal information when you provide it to us, such as when you submit a resume or other information in connection with an employment or mentoring opportunity, when you send e-mails to or otherwise contact our personnel, and otherwise. We also may automatically collect some information when you visit the Site, such as your computer’s IP address, operating system, the site from which you linked to us, the time and date of your visit, and any Services accessed by you. This information is not linked to personal information, but rather is only used to compile aggregate information.
Use and Security of Personal Information
The MENTOR Network’s policy is to use personal information only for internal purposes and for purposes of processing a request submitted by you. For example, when you post a resume or other personal information in response to an employment or mentoring opportunity, we will use such information to evaluate your eligibility and suitability for any such opportunity and use your contact information to contact you regarding same; when you send us an e-mail inquiring about something you have seen on the Site, we will use your e-mail address to respond to you; and so forth. The Network takes precautions to keep user information disclosed to us secure. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, The Network has put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.
Sharing of Personal Information
The MENTOR Network does not sell, rent, share, or disclose personal information to third parties without your prior consent, except in the limited circumstances described in this Policy. The Network reserves the right to use or disclose any information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to protect the integrity of the Site, to fulfill your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation on a matter of public safety. Also, if you have submitted personal information to the Site or to an affiliated site of The MENTOR Network in connection with an employment or mentoring position, and The Network becomes aware of an alternative position suitable for you in another state or through a separate office of The Network, The Network may share your personal information with such other office.
You are in control of any personal information you provide to us via the Site. If at any time, you would like to correct the personal information we have about you or if you would like to change your preferences for contacts from us, you can let us know by contacting us using the contact information listed below. In order to review any personal information we have about you or to ask us to delete that information or to stop further use of the information, please submit your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
