Your Access to and Control Over Information

You have the right to review the information that we have collected about you.

You may opt-out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via our contact form or phone number given on our website:

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. We do not keep credit card information on file. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. Applications of scholarship applicants that do not receive a scholarship are destroyed one year from receipt.
