ISEEK Privacy Policy

iSeek Solutions, the sponsor of this website, is firmly committed to protecting users' privacy rights and to promoting good citizenship in the Internet community.

This privacy policy ensures the protection of users' privacy rights on iSeek Solutions websites as specified in Minnesota Government Data Practices Act. (see http://www.revisor.leg.state.mn.us/stats/13 and http://www.revisor.leg.state.mn.us/stats/268/19.html for statutory text).

iSeek Solutions websites include Minnesota's career, education, and job resource, ISEEK.

What information does iSeek Solutions collect on its websites?

Generally, users have access to the vast majority of services and information on iSeek Solutions websites without being required to provide any private information. However, there are several ways in which users can transmit information to iSeek Solutions websites.

Cookies and IP addresses

iSeek Solutions websites use cookies (data stored on a user's computer that can later be retrieved by the web server) to maintain the continuity and security of the pages that users access. These cookies contain only a system-generated session identification number.

iSeek Solutions websites also analyze user IP addresses (the source address of the user's computer) to determine traffic patterns and to help with system maintenance. None of the information from cookies or IP addresses is linked to personally identifying information unless the user chooses to provide such information.

Occasionally, iSeek Solutions websites may offer promotions and contests, which require the users' address information so that winners can be notified of their prize.

In connection with promotions and contests, users may also be asked to fill out a survey which will not be linked to personally identifying information.

Surveys

Users are encouraged to fill out surveys about their information and service needs regarding education, career, and employment information as well as about their satisfaction with iSeek Solutions websites. Any personally identifying information in such surveys is completely voluntary and will not be shared with any third party.

Correspondence from users

Users may send comments or requests for information to the iSeek Solutions staff. iSeek Solutions uses responses from its users to make improvements on the website.

MinnesotaWorks log-in

The ISEEK website links users to a job bank service, which may require membership for such functions as posting a resume. For this purpose, users need to enter personal information, such as their address and resume-related information. Users can control whether and when they choose to release their information to potential employers. Users are provided with an additional privacy notice before they join the job bank.

Accounts

The ISEEK website allows users to create different types of accounts. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • users who personalize the site to their needs and collect links to different pages within ISEEK with My Account
  • schools that update their school data, including program and course selections, through an Information Manager account
  • educators that access work-based learning opportunities at local businesses
  • businesses that provide extended profile information about their company through employer accounts

In each case, users need to create or maintain (if the account is created for them) a user ID and password. They may also provide contact information on a voluntary basis. Contact information is not necessary to use My Account.

Who uses the information?

Any and all information collected on iSeek Solutions websites is used exclusively by iSeek Solutions. No personally identifying information is shared in any way with iSeek Solutions partners or third parties unless required by law.

What is the information used for?

All information users provide to iSeek Solutions is used only to maintain the websites, to provide users with services, to answer users' questions, and to allow users to personalize the website according to their needs. No personally identifying information is used for commercial purposes.
