Collection and Use of Your Information

Careerherd collects personal contact information (“Contact Information”) only in the event that it is entered by the user. The types of Contact Information Careerherd might collect include the name, mailing address, email address, phone number, and details about your specific educational interests. The Contact Information collected is given to the schools that you identify or a vendor that is contracted to those schools so they can contact you with additional details about their degree programs, services, and other school-related information. Your Contact Information might also be shared with Careerherd's business partners or email providers who are responsible for customer service duties, sending marketing materials to you, and other permitted purposes as outlined in this Privacy Policy. Furthermore, your Contact Information might be used to contact you if you start an inquiry on this site but are unable to complete it. As necessary, your Contact information may be used to fulfill information requests by you or when Careerherd feels that a business partner’s products and/or services might be of interest to you.

Contact Information that Careerherd collects is aggregated to create reports on trends in the education industry. This information may be sold to third-party entities. While safeguards are in place to protect against unauthorized disclosures of personal information, it cannot be guaranteed that the information Careerherd collects about you will never be disclosed in a way that is contrary to what is outlined in this Privacy Policy. Any Contact Information that is shared with a third-party is governed by that third-party’s privacy policy. It is highly recommended that you consult the privacy policy of our third-party partners as Careerherd has no control over information that is collected by them.

Information Sharing

Careerherd might share your Contact Information with its partners for the purposes of delivering communications and marketing materials to site visitors.

While you are able to opt-out of our information sharing policies, you will need to contact Careerherd's partner schools, business partners, and other third-party entities separately to opt-out of information sharing should you desire.
