Career Services at the University of Arizona is committed to providing its users good privacy practices regarding electronic personal information. We operate computer systems that are developed by our technical group and also partner with external organizations for our job listings, resume database and On-Campus Interviewing services. Information collected by systems is used to provide and tailor services to our customers and for program planning purposes. Information is also used to construct aggregate reports for federal, state and other fund granting agencies, as well as internal institutional studies.
Data collected by Career Services for in-house systems are stored in a secure SQL server in Career Services. Collection and access to student information is governed by the following campus and federal policies:
Job listings, resume services and campus interviewing are provided through the NACElink Network. UA Career Services partners with the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), a nonprofit professional organization for career centers and employers, Direct Employers Association, a nonprofit association of national employers, and Symplicity Corporation, to offer these services. Resumes and profiles of students and alumni participating in any of these services reside on the NACElink servers. There are two resume data bases in the NACElink system; a central global resume database and a local resume database. Resumes of students and alumni will be automatically placed in the local resume database. Students and alumni will have the option to place their resume in the central global resume database.
When users submit personally identifiable information via the Career Services Web Site, the information is protected both online and off-line.
Career Services uses 128-bit encryption for student identification information transmitted via the web site. User's information is restricted to University of Arizona employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a career counselor). Career Services uses third-party products for some of our web site applications. Third-party partners are granted access to user information when it is necessary to ensure the proper function of a third-party application.
In addition user data is password protected, so only you (or anyone to whom you provide your password) can access this information. All personally identifiable information UA Career Services collects about you is stored in limited-access servers. Career Services has technical, administrative, and physical security measures and safeguards in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under Career Services' control.
