WHAT WE COLLECT
Information You Provide to Us.
Information Collected via Technology.
Generally. When you use our Services, some information is automatically collected. For example, when you use our Services, your geographic location, how you use the Services, information about the type of device you use, your Open Device Identification Number, date/time stamps for your visit, your unique device identifier, your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (IP) address, and domain name are all collected. This information is generally used to help us deliver the most relevant information to you and administer and improve the Site. In addition, in the event our App crashes on your mobile device, we will receive information about your mobile device model software version and device carrier, which allows us to identify and fix bugs and otherwise improve the performance of our App.
Log Files. We gather certain information automatically and store it in log files, including IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to improve the content of the Site, market research purposes, to communicate information to visitors and to better tailor our Services to our users' needs.
Cookies. We may log information using "Cookies." Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive by a website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Site. This type of information is collected to make the Site more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.
Pixel Tags. In addition, we use "Pixel Tags" (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons, or Web bugs). Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, that are used to track online movements of Web users, but are embedded invisibly in Web pages.
Flash LSOs. When we post videos, third parties may use local shared objects, known as "Flash Cookies," to store your preferences for volume control or to personalize certain video features. Flash Cookies are different from browser Cookies because of the amount and type of data and how the data is stored. Cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove Flash Cookies. To learn how to manage privacy and storage settings for Flash Cookies, click here.
Inviting Others to Join the Site. Through the Site, you can invite third parties to create an Account by sending them your referral link. We will collect information regarding who you refer to the Site and the connection formed between you and the newly created user.
Location Information. If you have enabled location services on your mobile device, we collect your location information to make a map available to the recipients of your messages showing your location. If you do not want this information collected by us, you can disable location services on your mobile device.
USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may store and process personal information in the United States and other countries.
We may also create anonymous and/or deidentified data records from your personal information by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We use this anonymous data to enhance the content of our Services and improve the Site. We reserve the right to use anonymous data for any purpose and disclose anonymous data to third parties in our sole discretion.
We may get information about you from other sources. We may add this to information we get from this Site.
User Testimonials and Feedback. We may receive testimonials and comments from users who have had positive experiences with our Services. We may publish such content. When we publish this content, we may identify our users by their first and last name as well as the user's title, school or company, and major. We obtain the user's consent prior to posting this information along with the testimonial. We may post user feedback on the Site from time to time. We may share your feedback with your first and last name as well as the user's title, school or company, and major. If we choose to post such information along with your feedback, we will obtain your consent prior to posting you name with your feedback.
SHARING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Information You Share. Our Site and Services allow you to connect and share content and information. Please be mindful of your own privacy needs as you choose who to connect with and what to share and make public. We cannot control the privacy or security of information you choose to make public on the Site. If you share information about others, we suggest you get consent for any information you may share about them.
Information We Share. We may disclose aggregated information about our users and information that does not identify any individual without restriction. In addition, we may disclose personal information that we collect or you provide:
If you apply for a job through the Services, we may share your Profile information and other personal information with the company that posted the job.
Exclusive network rollouts involve email correspondence between you and Portfolium. You may opt-out of these emails at any time by clicking the appropriate unsubscribe link and/or adjusting your account settings. You will not be emailed without the permission of your university, based on a pre-approved schedule and content.
Employer Partners. Portfolium allows certain employer organizations ("Employer Partners") to have access to the Services in order to recruit students for open positions in such organizations. In their use of the Services, Employer Partners are able to see certain limited information about you in the same manner another user of the Site would see certain limited information about you; specifically, your name, school status, degree program and year of graduation. Employer Partners are not provided with your email address or other contact information and can only communicate with you via the private messaging functionality within the Services. At any time, you may unsubscribe from all such private messages or those from particular Employer Partners or opt-out of such limited information being viewable by Employer Partners by changing your privacy settings in your Account.
Public Profile. Certain portions of the information you provide to us may also be displayed in your Profile. You can set your Profile to be public or private using the privacy settings in the Site. Content you post to the Site may be displayed on the Site depending on your privacy settings and the location of the posting. Once publicly displayed, that information can be collected and used by others. We cannot control who reads your posting or what other users may do with the information that you voluntarily post, so it is very important that you do not put personal information in your posts. Once you have posted information publicly, while you will still be able to edit and delete it on the Services, you will not be able to edit or delete such information cached, collected, and stored elsewhere by others (e.g., search engines).
INFORMATION CHOICES AND CHANGES
You may opt-out of providing your personal information to the App at any time by uninstalling the App.
You can opt-out or customize the type of messages you receive from Portfolium by visiting the "Notifications" tab under "Settings", or by clicking on the unsubscribe link included at the bottom of Portfolium marketing emails. If you opt out, we may still send you non-marketing emails. Non-marketing emails include emails about your accounts and our business dealings with you.
You may review and update your personal information by visiting the "Settings" tab. If you wish to delete your Portfolium account, you can go to the "Privacy" tab under "Account Settings" and click "Disable Account". Once your account has been disabled, you can request deletion of your account by selecting "Permanently Delete" from the disable account screen. After you have requested deletion, you’ll have 15 days to cancel your deletion request. We will also process a delete request to all 3rd parties on your behalf. Additionally, you can edit or update other information in your Portfolium profile by visiting the "Profile" tab on your account. You can also edit your personal Portfolium URL on the "Profile" tab within the "Settings" screen. You may send requests about personal information to our Contact Information below. You can request to change contact choices, opt-out of information sharing (as detailed in the above section), and review, update, correct, or delete your personal information. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request. We may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.
If you have a Portfolium account, you can control whether we collect certain kinds of analytics and usage information through cookies and similar technologies, you can adjust your settings on your privacy settings page.
If you do not have a Portfolium account, you can manage cookies by managing your browser settings. You can modify your settings in most web browsers to accept or deny cookies or to request your permission each time a site attempts to set a cookie. You can also manually delete previously stored cookies at any time. Please note that if you choose to block cookies, doing so may impair the Platform or prevent certain elements of it from functioning.
Information Security. We are committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, use, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. While we use reasonable efforts to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
A Note about Children. While we do not encourage or allow users under the age of 13 to create accounts, younger students can be granted access only if their account is managed by a parent or other adult custodian. If a child under 13 submits personal information to Portfolium and we learn that the account has been created fraudulently, we will make every attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. If you believe that an account has been created without consent for any child under 13, please contact us at [email protected]
NOTE TO PARENTS. We are required under the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), with limited exceptions, to obtain verifiable parental consent in order to collect, use or disclose personal information from Children. COPPA allows the Child's school, school districts and other educational institutions (collectively, "SCHOOLS") to obtain consent for the online collection of personal information from Children who are students of the School.
As required under COPPA, we allow Parents to make certain choices regarding the personal information submitted by their Children as described in this subsection. Parents should make any permitted requests with the School and have the School, as the Parent's agent, pass on those requests to us. We may rely on the instructions that we receive from the School that we reasonably believe are given by a Child's Parent to the School. For example, if a representative of the Child's School contacts us and provides the Account information we request, we may assume that the person calling is acting on behalf of the Child's Parent.
