Privacy Policy

Personal Information

The Career Services Office at Rhodes State College is committed to preserving the privacy of its constituents – students, alumni, and employers – in regards to electronic personal information. We operate computer systems that are developed by our technical group and also partners with external organizations for our job listings, resume database and on-campus interviewing services. Information collected by systems is used to provide and tailor services to our customers and for program planning purposes. Information is also used to construct aggregate reports for state agencies and internal institutional studies.

Data collected by Career Services for in-house systems are stored in a secure SQL server. Collection and access to student information is governed by the following campus and federal policy:

The Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

http://www.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html

Job Listings, resume services and campus interviewing are provided through the College Central Network (CCN) system. Resumes and profiles of students and alumni participating in any of these services reside on the CCN servers.

Jobs posted on the CCN system may or may not be reviewed before posting. Site users are urged to validate job postings and use caution and common sense when applying. Do not disclose social security numbers, credit card information or bank account numbers to unknown employers.

Security

When users submit personally identifiable information via the Career Services Network Web Site, the information is protected both online and off-line.

User’s information is restricted to Rhodes State College employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a career specialist). Career Services uses third-party products for some of our web site applications. Third-party partners are granted access to user information when it is necessary to ensure the proper function of a third-party application.

In addition, user data is password protected, so only you (or anyone to whom you provide your password) can access this information. All personally identifiable information Rhodes State College Career Services Network collects about you is stored in limited-access servers. Career Services has technical, administrative, and physical security measures and safeguards in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under Career Services control.
