Privacy Policy

Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, Effective February 10, 2016

Thank you for using CareerOverview.com and its affiliated services. Like most websites, we have certain policies regarding our interaction with our users, and the way we obtain and utilize data to help maximize user experience, bringing you better content and information about educational products and services. By visiting our site, we assume you are in agreement with the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy outlined below.

Terms of Use and Privacy Policy Change Notification

Remember that the following policies are subject to change at any time. If at any point in the future, CareerOverview.com changes any of these practices, we will update our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy accordingly. Thus, we strongly encourage users to consult this page periodically to ensure that they are aware of any changes in our practices.

CareerOverview.com gathers information about its users. Such information typically falls into one of two categories:

  1. Submitted Information: CareerOverview.com offers a number of web forms which allow users to voluntarily submit personal contact information, such as name, telephone number, and mailing address. Such web forms help us match users with any services they might request, or match them with additional, relevant educational services or products. When users submit this information, we store it and share it with schools or third-parties, with the intention of providing users with more relevant information about schools, programs, and other educational services.
  2. Automatic Information: Like most websites do, we collect and store user data from every visitor to our site. Above all, this information is used to enhance our site and improve the overall user experience. Anonymous, automatic data can include information such as a user’s browser version, operating system version, and IP address.

    “Cookies” are the most common type of automatic information that we gather, and are most frequently used for advertising and marketing, as well as web analytics. Users are presumed to be in compliance with our cookie policy.

Cookies

Cookies are tiny, anonymous files of data that are exchanged between a website and a user, and then collected in the user’s web browsers. We use cookies in collaboration with partner vendors and third-party service providers. Cookies serve a variety of purposes, including:

  • Web Analytics: We use cookies to perform web analytics that help us optimize our site and better understand our user, their demographics, and their interests. We use the Google, Inc. tool Google Analytics to perform our web analytics. To read more about Google Analytics, visit Google, Inc’s own privacy policy here: http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html
  • Marketing and Advertising: We use advertising cookies to track the success of advertisements and optimize our digital advertising performance and effectiveness. These cookies help us tailor advertisements to users based on relevance in order to create the best possible user experience. These advertisements contain information about user demographics and interests, but do not contain personally identifiable information and protect the anonymity of our users. Advertising cookies are often called “third-party cookies” because they monitor advertising performance on behalf of our third-party collaborators.
  • “Lead auditing”: We use cookies for lead auditing to make sure that information being submitting on our site is accurate and relevant.
