Ameson Foundation Privacy Policy

Last updated: (April 22, 2016)

The Ameson Education and Cultural Exchange Foundation (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates (the "Site"). This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the Site. We use your Personal Information only for providing and improving the Site. By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

Information Collection and Use

You may provide personal information to Ameson. Our online application asks for certain data, including educational and employment background, contact information and preferences, and job qualifications. You also may choose to provide Ameson additional information, such transcripts; employment references and related information; and compensation requests, if applicable. In addition, Ameson may collect information from third parties, for example, in connection with a background or employment check and/or an employment reference.

Ameson does not request or require sensitive personal information concerning religion, sexual orientation, or political affiliation in connection with recruiting. If you have a disability and would like Ameson to consider any accommodation, you may provide that information during the recruiting process. As well, certain Ameson positions ask for information such as race or ethnicity for the purpose of monitoring diversity in program participation and full-time staff; however, we do not require applicants to provide race or ethnicity information, and if you provide this information it will not be considered in deliberations.

Voluntary Disclosure

Your provision of personal information in connection with recruiting is voluntary, and you determine the extent of information you provide to Ameson; please note that if you decide not to provide information, it may affect our ability to consider you for employment.

Information Use
The information may be used to communicate with you, to manage Ameson's recruiting and hiring processes, and for compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. If you are hired, the information may be used in connection with employment and corporate management.

Your Responsibilities

You are responsible for the information you provide or make available to Ameson, and you must ensure it is honest, truthful, accurate and not misleading in any way. You must ensure that the information provided does not contain material that is obscene, defamatory, or infringing on any rights of any third party; does not contain malicious code; and is not otherwise legally actionable. Further, if you provide any information concerning any other person, such as individuals you provide as references, you are responsible for providing any notices and obtaining any consents necessary for Ameson to collect and use that information as described in this policy.

We may use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information about the Ameson Foundation or its programs.


The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
