Privacy Policy

The Fortune Spark Scholarship Foundation

Fortune Scholarship recognizes that your privacy is important. To demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy and to explain the types of information we obtain about visitors to our website, how that information is obtained and used, and how visitors can restrict its use or disclosure, we have created the Privacy Policy below. The following discusses our information gathering and dissemination practices at Fortune Scholarship.

Information We Receive and How It Is Used
All personal information obtained by Fortune Scholarship about individual visitors to our website is information supplied voluntarily by that visitor. During registration, a user is required to provide certain categories of information, such as name, address, email address, a password, date of birth, gender and country of citizenship. In addition, a user may choose to provide other categories of information, such as career objectives, health or disability information, hobbies and other interests. Fortune Scholarship encourages its users to provide all of these fields of information so that users may maximize the effectiveness of the scholarship and college search. We ask if we may make that information available to our select list of marketing partners, which are reputable companies and organizations that provide products and services of interest to students and parents. Our users choose whether to opt-in or opt-out of sharing their information with these partners.

When Fortune Scholarship shares your personal information with a third party as described in this Privacy Policy, your personal information will become permanently subject to the information use and sharing practices of the third party. That third party will not be restricted by this Privacy Policy with respect to its use and further sharing of your personal information. If you agree to receive communications from our marketing partners and later change your mind, you may need to contact those companies directly. Any updates you wish to make to the information they possess must also be forwarded to the company communicating with you at that point in time.

Users of Fortune Scholarship who wish to terminate their communication with Fortune Scholarship may do so at any time by sending an email to info@fortunescholarship.com. Please be sure to type specific details subject field and submit the email account associated with your profile.

Fortune Scholarship is committed to safeguarding users' privacy on our website. We require our staff to protect our users and visitors by keeping their profile information private, and expect our marketing partners to do the same. You can feel confident that your user profile will be protected when you visit Fortune Scholarship. We have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of all user information under our control.

Regardless of your decision regarding the sharing of your personal information, we reserve the right to share aggregated demographic data and related usage information with our business partners. Such aggregate information will not contain any personal information that can identify any individual user, as they are all anonymous.

Information Sharing & Email Preferences
Fortune Scholarship understands the importance of protecting personally-identifiable information. We will not share, sell, rent or otherwise transfer this information without the user's permission, and then only in accordance with the terms set forth in this Privacy Policy. Our website provides users the opportunity to unsubscribe (opt-out) from receiving email messages from Fortune Scholarship and its marketing partners, or from having their personal information shared with our marketing partners.

Fortune Scholarship may use your contact information periodically in order to send you email regarding updates at the Fortune Scholarship site, such as Fortune Scholarship opportunities and additional listings which may be of interest to you. The frequency of these messages will vary depending upon several resources and times of the year, including the types of scholarships and other graduation activities you have indicated an interest in. Please note that email messages from third parties are not governed by the opt-out provisions of this Privacy Policy.

Collection of Passive Information
To gauge the effectiveness of our website, we collect generic information about our visitors that is not individually-identifiable. Our web servers automatically recognize a visitor's IP address, the web page from which a visitor enters our website, which pages a visitor visits, and how much time a visitor spends on each page. This information does not reveal a visitor's identity. We aggregate this information and use it to help diagnose problems with our web server, to administer to our website, or to evaluate and improve our website’s functions and resources. We use cookies to tell our server that a visitor has initiated a user session; however, they do not contain individually-identifiable information. Some of our business partners, such as advertisers, use cookies on our site, but we have no access to, nor control over, these cookies. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Fortune Scholarship only and does not cover the use of cookies by our business partners.

We may share statistical and demographic information about our website's visitors with our marketing partners. This information is only provided in the aggregate, meaning that the information is about our website's visitors as a group and not about individually-identifiable visitors.

We follow generally-accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100 percent secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially-acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If you have any questions about security on our website, you can contact our privacy department.

As such, Fortune Scholarship will not knowingly collect any personally-identifiable information from children under the age of 13, nor will children under the age of 13 be allowed to register with Fortune Scholarship.

Notification of Changes
If we are going to use your personally identifiable information in a manner materially different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify you via email. You will have the option to decide whether we may use your information in this manner. In addition, if we make any material changes to our Privacy Policy that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our website notifying users of the change.
