7. Accessing and Correcting Your Personal Information

Proper access and use of information provided on the Website, including Personal Information and Scholarship Materials, is governed by our terms of use.

8. Data Security

We have implemented measures designed to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers behind firewalls.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We recommend choosing a strong password and not sharing it with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet and mobile platforms is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information or Scholarship Materials transmitted through our Website. Any transmission of such information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures we provide.
