What information do we collect?
Information gathered for travel discount qualification.
In order to access the special discount promotion codes, we ask users to fill out a brief questionnaire. This information provides us with user data that we can use in order to build stronger travel discount programs. At no time is any of the data collected shared with our travel company providers, nor anyone else. Data gathered are used in the aggregate, and at no time are individual names, addresses or other personally identifying factors used in any reports.
Information gathered for Surveys.
From time to time, we ask our users to fill out brief surveys. The data gathered are used to help us develop our programs so that they might be more useful to college-bound students and their parents. Occasionally we share information, (again, only in the aggregate) about user patterns with high school guidance professionals, college admissions staff and other parties interested in college bound students and their school selection process. At no time is any personal data shared with anyone outside of Collegia.
When users send us questions, we retain their contact information for response purposes only. At no time is this information shared with anyone outside Collegia.
