Privacy Policy

The Academic & Career Advising Center is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal information.

The Center contracts with the NACElink Network to provide Longwood University students with job and internship listings, on-campus interviewing opportunities, calendar and document storage services. Please refer to the NACElink Privacy Statement (http://www2.nacelink.com/nl_privacy_policy.php) for technical details and a description of the NACElink.com site.

Use of personally identifiable candidate information by the Academic & Career Advising Center at Longwood University

Through NACElink (CareerConnect), available via the Center's website, students and registered alumni can post resumes and additional application materials, view and apply for jobs and internships, and schedule on-campus interviews. Via NACElink, students and alumni users will share personally identifiable information (name, contact information, demographic information, academic history, G.P.A, employment history, etc.) for the purposes listed above. The information in a candidate's profile is used by Center for job-search advising, promoting programs and services, notifying candidates of employment and experiential opportunities, and referring qualified candidates to employers.

Resumes are not shared with third parties, such as employment agencies or search firms.

Only the resumes of students who have given permission to have their resumes
released to employers are shared with prospective employers.

Resumes are selected based on objective, legally-permissible requirements.

Employers do not have access to view information or resumes directly from the Center's database; NACE's commitment to all users-schools, employers, and students/alumni-is that NACE will maintain the confidentiality of all information collected on NACElink Network and NACE will not sell, transmit, or disclose in any
fashion this information to any other organization.

The Academic & Career Advising Center may conduct searches on resumes and candidate profiles to notify candidates of educational or employment opportunities through email communications. By entering data into the Center's NACElink system (CareerConnect), students and alumni may have data included in aggregate reports used for evaluation of employment activities, educational programs, reports developed for institutional studies, and salary surveys. NACElink cannot use or sell individual candidate data. Unlike commercial vendors, NACElink staff cannot look at individual candidate data.

Employers

Longwood University's Academic & Career Advising Center will collect information from employers utilizing the NACElink site. This information includes contact information (such as your phone number or e-mail address), unique identifiers (such as your NACE membership or account numbers, or password to NACElink Network); and financial information (such as a credit card number), and demographic information (for example, location, type of organization, size of organization). Any financial information collected will be used only to bill your organization for fees associated with multi-school listings or other NACElink Network services. NACE has a contract with VeriSign to verify credit card numbers. Your credit card information will be deleted as soon as the transaction is completed and will not be stored on NACE's or DirectEmployers' servers. You will need to re-enter that information each time there is a new financial transaction.

NACE will receive and collect from employers, job and internship postings (including job descriptions, employment qualifiers, and salary information) and interview schedules posted either directly through NACElink Network, through the DirectEmployers Association web site, or through the Academic & Career Advising Center's web site.

Technical Issues

Updating Account Information

NACElink allows users to change or correct personal information at any time. To do so, users simply login to their account, go to their profile and locate options for editing the information.

Internet Protocol (IP) Addresses and Aggregated User Data

NACE collects IP addresses from all users of the site, and collects and monitors other data and information about the activities of users on the site collectively. This data is used anonymously and in the aggregate.

Cookies

Cookies, which are small text files recorded in a user's hard drive, are employed by
thousands of sites to enhance users' web viewing experience. Cookies cannot damage user files, nor can they read information from a user's hard drive. Cookies in and of themselves do not personally identify users, although they do identify a user's computer. Cookies allow sites to "remember" users across pages of a site and across multiple visits to a site. However, when users access NACElink, it will set a cookie while they are on the site. Once users log out of the site or close their browser window the cookies are deleted. Thus, NACElink will not be storing information as to the number of times that a user visited the site. It will be necessary for users to log in each time that they wish to access NACElink.

Security

Personally identifiable information is protected both on- and offline. The data of students, alumni, and employers are password protected. All personally identifiable information collected by NACE is stored in limited-access servers. NACElink has technical, administrative, and physical security measures and safeguards in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information under NACE's control. This site uses firewalls to protect from loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under its control. Longwood University's Academic & Career Advising Center has associated itself with NACE and NACElink in order to provide improved services to Longwood University students and alumni. Many of the provisions contained in this Statement are based upon representations made by NACE and NACElink. While Longwood University believes that NACE and NACElink provide a valuable service to Longwood University job seeking community, NACE and NACElink are not affiliated with Longwood University. Therefore, Longwood University cannot guarantee, nor does it otherwise accept responsibility for, any portion of this Statement that depends upon NACE's representations and its compliance with those representations.

The Center does not endorse any employer and urges students to use good judgment in all of their interactions with employers. The Center suggests that students request business references for unknown organizations before interviewing with them off campus or exploring job opportunities. Students should never give a potential employer their credit card, social security numbers, or bank account numbers, and never spend any of their own money on an employment "opportunity" unless very certain that it is for a legitimate reason (such as training costs). The Center advises students to interview in public places only. Students and alumni should contact the Academic & Career Advising Center if they have any concerns about the use of their information. Students and alumni can view, correct or change their information by logging into their account on the Center's website.
