Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At GradsLikeMe, we have a few fundamental principles:
Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

GradsLikeMe Inc. ("GradsLikeMe") operates GradsLikeMe.com. It is GradsLikeMe's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, GradsLikeMe collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. GradsLikeMe's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how GradsLikeMe's visitors use its website. From time to time, GradsLikeMe may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. GradsLikeMe also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. GradsLikeMe only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to GradsLikeMe’s website choose to interact with GradsLikeMe in ways that require GradsLikeMe to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that GradsLikeMe gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who request an account to provide their name, gender, school information and email address. GradsLikeMe collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with GradsLikeMe. GradsLikeMe does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics
GradsLikeMe may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. GradsLikeMe may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, GradsLikeMe does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
GradsLikeMe discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on GradsLikeMe's behalf or to provide services available at GradsLikeMe's website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using GradsLikeMe's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. GradsLikeMe will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, GradsLikeMe discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when GradsLikeMe believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of GradsLikeMe, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of GradsLikeMe’s website and have supplied your email address, GradsLikeMe may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with GradsLikeMe and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. GradsLikeMe takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
