and Survey - Including How Your Information is Shared
Our site requests information from users via the scholarship
contest and survey. Participation in the scholarship contest and survey is
voluntary. The requested information includes contact information, which will
be used to notify the winners and award prizes.
Scholarship applicants to the contest will have
their personal identifiable information shared with third party Transfer Times advertisers
(advertising colleges and business partners of Transfer Times that are listed on
the website). The scholarship applicant’s information will be shared with both
the advertising colleges that the students select to receive information from
and with advertising schools who advertise in the edition coverage area where
the scholarship contest applicant goes to school. If a student selects Undecided for colleges,
their information will still be shared with advertisers in the edition coverage
area where the scholarship contest applicant goes to school. Scholarship contest winners consent to having their name
and picture used on the website and in the publication for promotional
purposes. An entry into the scholarship contest indicates consent to allow us
to share user information and also constitutes agreement to and acknowledgement
In addition to your information being shared with
advertisers, Transfer Times will email scholarship applicants
about new advertising schools, articles about transferring and other promotional information from Transfer Times.
Survey information will be used in aggregate form for
improving the use and satisfaction with the website and publication.
