PRIVACY NOTICE for online M-Scholarships application
To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. Please read this policy carefully before sharing any of your personally identifiable information with us. We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected.
This site is maintained by the Mercer County Community College (MCCC) Advancement Office, with data storage and maintenance provided by a third party vendor, Scholarship Solutions, LLC (Scholarship Solutions), including, without limitation, www.awardspring.com (each such website being a Scholarship Solutions website). Both MCCC and Scholarship Solutions have confidentiality and privacy policies. The information you submit will be made available only to appropriate parties concerned with administering the scholarship program, judging scholarships, or maintaining this scholarship site.
MCCC employees are governed by the Family Educational Right to Privacy Act (FERPA), which ensures that a student's private educational information is kept confidential. Generally, scholarship committees include only MCCC employees; in the very few cases where committees include non-MCCC personnel, the scholarship application will have a statement to this effect. All committee members are held to federal privacy laws, regardless of their status at MCCC.
You will generally not be contacted using information you provide on this site, except to notify you of upcoming scholarship deadlines or to inform you of your application status. Out of respect for your privacy, you may opt-out of receiving communications at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, since these emails are essential to the scholarship application and awarding process, a decision to opt out will effectively withdraw you from the process.
