Welcome to Admittedly! We are your personalized, online college guidance counselor. We use personality quizzes and other tools to help match students with schools ideal for their personality, interests, and goals. With the Admittedly Score, students better understand how they stand as applicants and whether their ideal schools fall into reach, target, or safer categories. We also provide personalized recommendations on how to improve student resumes based on their interests, location, goals, and budget.
When you use our Site, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or mobile platform, which may include location information; computer or device configuration; IP address and URL of referring website, if any; pages viewed; number of visitors; and length of visits. We treat this data as "non-personal information," except where we are required to treat it as Personally Identifiable Information under applicable law. Certain non-personal information could be considered part of your PII if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be personally identified or contacted. We use non-personal information to evaluate and improve our Site and Services.
Like many web-based services, we collect information when you browse our Site or use our Service through technological tools such as "cookies." A cookie is a small text file placed on your computer's hard drive when you visit a website. The cookie gives you a unique, random ID that enables our Site to recognize you on subsequent visits and remember your viewing preferences. Users are free to set their web browsers to prevent the acceptance of cookies, however, if you disable cookies, you may not be able to use or access certain Services on our Site.
We may use personally identifiable information you provide us to:
You may change or delete your PII by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and including in the subject line "modify PII" or online through your User Account profile. We may, however, retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.
We may also combine your Personally Identifiable and non-personal information and aggregate it with information collected from other users to analyze and understand how our Service is used and to improve our products, offerings, and services. We may also provide aggregated information to our third party partners so that they may understand how people use their services and how our users, collectively, use our Site.
As part of our Service, we also run scholarship contests ("Sweepstakes"). Entrants may be asked if they wish to submit personal statements or resumes, a form of User Content. If you choose to submit this type of User Content when entering a Sweepstakes, you agree that we may post it on our Site and it will be accessible to other users of our Service. Therefore, you should remove any information you do not want to be made available on our Site, including, without limitation, PII, before submitting.
Admittedly may also send you by email newsletters, marketing or promotional materials, and other information that may be of interest to you, but only if you’ve requested to receive such communications. If you decide that you no longer wish to receiver any such communications from us, you may unsubscribe by using the "unsubscribe" feature included at the bottom of each such email communication.
We care about the security of your information. We use commercially reasonable safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of information collected and maintained through the Service. However, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us or guarantee that information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by unauthorized persons. We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of stored personally identifiable (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or posting on the Site, without unreasonable delay, consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
Our Services are hosted on computer servers located in the United States, where the privacy laws may differ than those in your jurisdiction. Therefore, your information may be transferred to, processed on, and stored in computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction. Your use of this Site or the Service or your submission of any PII to us will constitute your consent to the transfer.
We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We can disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process including, but not limited to, subpoenas, to protect the property and rights of Admittedly or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity. United States federal and state governments, courts, or law enforcement or regulatory agencies may be able to obtain disclosure of your information through laws applicable in the United States.
Admittedly is concerned about the privacy and safety of children when they use the internet. We will not knowingly request Personally Identifiable Information online from anyone under the age of 13 without prior, verifiable parental consent. Our Site and Services are for general audiences and are not targeted to or intended for use by children. Unfortunately, we cannot always determine the age of a visitor to our Site or user of our Services.
