Information You Enter About Yourself

In order to use our website effectively, it is necessary that you enter information about yourself, your interests, your goals, assessments you have taken, and other personal data. Except as stated herein, this information is not disclosed to any other group or agency for any purpose, nor, except as necessary to correct system problems, is individual information looked at by staff of The Center on Education and Work.

General Information Use for Website Improvement

In general, we gather information about all of our users collectively, such as areas users visit most frequently and services users access the most. We look at the profiles individual users enter into assessments, however, never in conjunction with data that identify the individual. We may also use individually entered data for demonstration purposes but only if it is impossible to identify its source.

Typically, we only use data anonymously and in the aggregate. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial for our users, and how we can continually create a better overall experience for them. We may share this information with others, but only in the aggregate, so that they too may understand how users interact with our site.

As mentioned earlier, we may look at individual information if it is essential to site operation, error correction, and maintenance; however, if possible, our staff does not look at information that can be related to any individual.

Professional Users

Information entered by those designated as "professional users" of the website is accessible as noted above. In addition, for professional users who access classroom activities, their first and last names (as entered during registration) are linked to any activity that they access as a PDF file. The purpose of this link is to allow other professionals to know if another individual at their site might have used an activity in which they have interest.

Aggregated Reports and Use of Aggregate Data

Institutions or agencies that make the career information systems available to their students, customers, or clients can receive aggregated information in the form of various reports. However, except as noted, these reports are designed to ensure that individuals cannot be associated with the data. These reports serve a variety of purposes for the institution including enhancing their ability to provide specific services to their users.

The Center on Education and Work also reserves the right to use aggregate information (which does not allow identification of individuals) for research on student or adult preferences and for website site improvement.

Access to Personal Information

Site Administrators or their designees can list, by occupation or institution, the names of students who have accessed information on each occupation or institution. These lists can be used to inform students of opportunities that the school makes available to students interested in a particular occupation or institution. Student ePortfolios can also be accessed by Site Administrators.
