We may collect Personal and Non-Personal information from users of the Foundation Web Site. We may also obtain such information from third parties.
What we do with the information we gather
We require the information that we gather for various reasons including the following: (i) to administer and conduct scholarship programs (e.g., to identify potential scholarship recipients and to provide scholarship-related services); (ii) to understand your needs, provide you with a better service, and respond to your inquiries; (iii) for internal record keeping; (iv) for internal analysis; and (v) to administer promotions, services, and offers for which you provided Personal Information and/or Non-Personal Information. Subject to the provisions below, we may also use this information for other marketing-related purposes.
With respect to Application Information:
(ii) Scholarship Recipients. The Foundation retains the application forms of students selected as scholarship recipients. This data remains on the Foundation's servers and is accessible only to current Foundation personnel unless the Foundation, in its sole discretion, decides to destroy such information. Scholarship recipients (and/or their parents/legal guardians) may also be required to provide Social Security Numbers to facilitate payment of scholarship funds. However, a Social Security Number is never added to the online record associated with an application. If obtained, this number is kept securely at the Foundation's offices. The name, brief biography, one or more photographs, and/or undergraduate/vocational/post-secondary institution of each scholarship recipient may, in the Foundation's sole discretion, be posted on the Foundation Web Site.
We may use the information to improve our products and services, and to measure the number of visitors to the Foundation Web Site and the areas of the Web Site that are of most interest to visitors.
We may use the information to customize the web site.
