Privacy & Security



Each institution is required to let you know when they will access your data – once you save it, or when you submit it. You can review the institution’s policy in the End User License Agreement.

We will otherwise not provide access to your personal data to any other party. You are responsible for protecting your account information, including your password to prevent unauthorized disclosure to third parties. Under these Terms of Use, you agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your user identification or password and any other breach of security. You are responsible for any unauthorized charges made on or through your account(s) until we receive such notification. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage resulting from your failure to comply with the terms of this agreement.

If you decide to pay fees associated with the program or event through the online payment system that is part of this application system, then for credit card billing purposes, we may need to share your name, address, and other personal contact information with the billing processor. Please note that the billing processor will only utilize such information for billing purposes, and this data will not be shared with other third parties. Credit/Debit card information is not saved by this application/registration system.

Your in-progress application account will be kept active for at least 1 year following your last date of access. After this period of time, your account and password will remain valid, but your application data may be removed.

Non Personal Information
As part of our standard operation, we may collect certain non-personal information from you, including but not limited to your browser type, operating system, IP address and the domain name from which you accessed our portal. In addition, we may collect information about your browsing behavior, such as the date and time you visit. We use this information for (1) support purposes; (2) to administer the portal, monitor its usage and diagnose problems; (3) to protect the security or integrity of the portal and our business, and the institution’s business.

We may share non personal information about you as follows: (1) to the institution upon which you create or submit your application; (2) to respond to judicial process and provide information to law enforcement agencies or in connection with an investigation on matters related to public safety, as permitted by law, or otherwise as required by law.


This product employs industry-proven standards and technologies to protect the security of your information. Every page rendered through this online application, including the application fee payment page (if applicable), and all information you send is encrypted using Secured Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. Your browser may not show the typical “key” or “lock” icon in the toolbar which indicates a secured page because the online application may be displayed within a framed page on the institution’s Web site. If this is the case, you can verify the security by viewing the properties of the online application page. To do this in Internet Explorer, right-click on the page and select Properties from the pop-up menu; in Netscape Navigator, select View Frame Info from the View menu; and in Firefox, right-click on the page and select This Frame > View Frame Info from the pop-up menu. Notice that the page is rendered using “https://” indicating a secured server.

Your contribution is also important to protect the security of your access to our system.

  • Protect your PIN/User Name and password by keeping it unique and known only to you.
  • Choose a password that would be difficult to guess.
  • Avoid writing your password in a place where others can view it.
  • Use the “logout” button to log out of your application upon completion of each instance of using it. Upon log out, you will receive a message confirming your successful log out. Failure to log out could endanger the security of your account by potentially allowing others using the same computer to access information saved or cached in the memory of the browser.
  • Do not include any online application information, including links, in public forums.
