What Personal Information does the AT Foundation collect from you? Certain required and optional Personal Information (such as your name, gender, grade, email address, telephone number, school name, and AMC exam scores) is collected from you when you voluntarily provide this information to us through the completion of an on-line application form. Whenever you visit the Site, the web server may automatically collect the IP address of the computer you are using.
How does the AT Foundation use your Personal Information? The AT Foundation will use the information you provide to determine your eligibility to participate in the Math Prize.
What are your choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information, including your rights to "opt-in" or "opt-out"? You have the right not to provide us with any Personal Information when you visit the Site, but you will not be able to apply for the Math Prize for Girls unless you decide to "opt-in" by completing an on-line application form and answering all of the required fields. Users/Applicants can "opt-out" of providing information that is designated as "optional" on any application and still complete their application.
What is the AT Foundation's policy on allowing you to access, update, correct, or delete your Personal Information? After you apply, we will send your application information to your e-mail address. If you need to update your application information, please contact us to do so. Unfortunately, absent extenuating circumstances which you must specifically communicate to us in a signed writing, we do not allow you to delete your application information or to deactivate your application information account.
The AT Foundation will make reasonable efforts to see that your instructions to make revisions to your Personal Information are made. For any information erroneously provided by the Applicant, you must contact the AT Foundation directly to alert them to the erroneous information.
What kind of security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of your Personal Information, including how your information is stored, accessed and used by others? Your Personal Information is encrypted by the AT Foundation.
Remember to clear your history personal settings, clear the computer cache and close all browser windows when you finish your work. This helps mitigate the chance that others can access your Personal Information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe.
When you provide the AT Foundation your Personal Information on-line, that information is only viewed by the admissions officers for the sole purpose of evaluating your application for acceptance into the Math Prize as well as for providing technical support for the services being provided to you.
The Site retains your Personal Information for the entire application admissions cycle, which ends on or about November 30th of each calendar year. Once the AT Foundation closes its annual admissions cycle, your Personal Information is removed or "archived" off the "live" servers and "backed-up" to a separate secured remote server for storage (at least until overwritten when space is needed to back-up more recent data) where no one can access it except by us on a limited basis as deemed necessary. The reasons for granting continued limited access to your Personal Information from the remote server may include, but are not necessarily limited to, allowing us to compile statistical and/or historical information about the previous year's applications and/or to assist a current applicant who had created or submitted an application the previous year. For statistical purposes, your Personal Information will be used only in the aggregate, meaning that Personal Information such as your name and email address shall not be used. For some historical purposes, however, such as assisting you in your current application submission by utilizing the information that you had created or submitted the previous academic year, we will have continued access to your archived Personal Information as we deem necessary.
