Privacy Policy

    OurRecruits.com Principles

    OurRecruits.com was built for high School, junior college student athletes to be recruited on a global stage as well as a managing/marketing tool for high school and junior college coaches. OurRecruits.com is a interactive recruiting database that was designed by current and former coaches and athletes for coaches and student athletes., Every year thousands of student athletes go unnoticed and un-recruited not because they lack talent, but because they lack the knowledge and exposure needed to attract college scholarships. Additionally, many colleges lack the recruiting budgets to recruit and find themselves holding on to scholarships. It is our passion to see that every student athlete have an opportunity to become a scholar athlete, and that every college have the ability to access those athletes - all FREE of charge. We here at OurRecruits.com understand that recruiting restrictions may apply and/or you may not want to share your information about you on OurRecruits.com; that is why we give you control of your information. Our privacy settings limit the information displayed in your profile to your networks and other reasonable community limitations that we tell you about.

    OurRecruits.com follows two core principles:

    1. You should have control over your personal information.

    OurRecruits.com helps you share athletic information with your parents, your high school/junior college coach and recruiters. You choose what information you put in your profile, including contact and personal information, pictures, etc. You and your coach control and share that information through the privacy settings on the My Privacy page.

    2. You should have access to the information others want to share.

    There is an increasing amount of information available when it comes to achieving an athletic scholarship, and you may want to know how it relates to you. We want to help you and other student athletes/coaches easily get that information. Sharing information should be easy. We want to provide you with the privacy tools necessary to control how and with whom you share that information. If you have questions or ideas, please send them to info@ourrecruits.com

    Use of Information Obtained by OurRecruits.com

    When you register with OurRecruits.com, you create your own profile and privacy settings. Your profile information, as well as your name, email and photo, are displayed to individual within the database specified in your privacy settings to enable you to communicate with your coach and market yourself to recruiters on OurRecruits.com. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by OurRecruits.com that we think you may find valuable. Profile information is used by OurRecruits.com primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the service and to be presented to others permitted to view that information by your privacy settings. In some cases where your privacy settings permit it (e.g., posting to your profile), other OurRecruits.com users will not be able to supplement your profile. Profile information you submit to OurRecruits.com will be available to your coach of OurRecruits.com who belong to at least one of the networks you allow to access the information through your privacy settings (e.g., school, geography). Your name, network names, and profile picture thumbnail will be available in search results across the OurRecruits.com network and those limited pieces of information may be made available to third party search engines. This is primarily so recruiters can find you and send a interest request. Recruiters who see your name in searches, however, will not be able to access your profile information. OurRecruits.com may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. For instance, if a coach sends you a new message or a recruiters school logo appears on your hit bar, you may receive an email alerting you to that fact. OurRecruits.com reserves the right to send you notice about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications. OurRecruits.com may use information in your profile without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as aggregating how many people in a network like personalizing advertisements and promotions so that we can provide you OurRecruits.com. We believe this benefits you. You can know more about the world around you and, where there are advertisements, they're more likely to be interesting to you. For example, if you wear a particular piece of apparel, we might serve you an advertisement highlighting a screening of a similar one in your town. But we don't tell the advertising company who you are. We may use information about you that we collect from other sources, including but not limited to newspapers and Internet sources such as blogs, instant messaging services, OurRecruits.com developers and other users of OurRecruits.com, to supplement your profile. Where such information is used, we generally allow you to specify in your privacy settings that you do not want this to be done or to take other actions that limit the connection of this information to your profile (e.g., removing photo tag links).

    Sharing Your Information with Third Parties

    OurRecruits.com is about sharing information with coaches/recruiters, while providing you with privacy settings that restrict other users from accessing your information. Our network architecture and your privacy settings allow you to make informed choices about who has access to your information. We do not provide contact information to third party marketers without your permission. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is 1) reasonably necessary to offer the service, 2) legally required or, 3) permitted by you.

    For example: 

    (1)Unlike most sites on the Web, OurRecruits.com limits access to site information by third party search engine "crawlers" (e.g. Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.) OurRecruits.com takes action to block access by these engines to personal information beyond your name, profile picture, and limited aggregated data about your profile. (2)We may provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about OurRecruits.com, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, to process payments for products or services, to offer an online job application process, or to provide search results or links (including sponsored links). In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time in connection with these business activities. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the OurRecruits.com-specified purposes. (3)We occasionally provide demonstration accounts that allow non-users a glimpse into the OurRecruits.com's world. Such accounts have only limited capabilities and passwords are changed regularly to limit possible misuse. (4)We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the OurRecruits.com service or using the OurRecruits.com name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies. (5)We let you choose to share information with marketers or electronic commerce providers through sponsored groups or other on-site offers. (6)We may offer stores or provide services jointly with other companies on OurRecruits.com. You can tell when another company is involved in any store or service provided on OurRecruits.com, and we may share customer information with that company in connection with your use of that store or service. (7)If the ownership of all or substantially all of the OurRecruits.com business, or individual business units owned by OurRecruits.com, Inc., were to change, your user information may be transferred to the new owner so the service can continue operations. In any such transfer of information, your user information would remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy. When you use OurRecruits.com, certain information you post or share with third parties (e.g., a coach/recruiter or someone on your team), such as personal information, comments, messages, photos, videos, Marketplace listings or other information, may be shared with other users in accordance with the privacy settings you select. All such sharing of information is done at your own risk. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information in your profile or when posting comments, messages, photos, videos, Marketplace listings or other items, this information may become publicly available.
