Greetings from Skillplay, a platform for career services that links students and companies to democratise the job search process in college and beyond. Since the beginning, we have worked to incorporate privacy into our platform in a way that respects students' rights, universities' responsibilities, and employers' requirements. We want to be explicit about the fundamental privacy principles that govern our policies and procedures since we recognise that student data privacy is a hot topic at the moment:
Students have full discretion over which data they want to make public.We give students control over their profile's visibility to companies and the data they choose to disclose. Until a student decides to make their profile public, no employer can ever examine any student data that has been posted to Skillplay.
Universities choose the student data they share with Skillplay.We are delighted to collaborate with universities to identify the best strategies for maximising the value of their career centres without sacrificing student privacy since we respect students' rights with regard to their own personal data.
Skillplay will never sell personal student data.We never did it before, and we never will! Our business strategy is built on giving our student and employer users useful resources that advance the career exploration process. Your personal information, including your email address, will never be sold to a third party.
