Scholarship Privacy Policy

California Contractors Insurance Services (CCIS) is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of the students that apply for the Future Contractors Scholarship. This policy will cover the information that is collected by students and what the information will be used for. CCIS does not share or sell any of the students provided personal information to anyone outside the organization. The students will maintain full rights and ownership of their work. No changes will be made to the submitted essays. The company does share the winning student’s name, photo, and essay on the website blog, which is also shared via social media. Other private information that is provided, such as email, phone number, etc., will not be made public. The email address and phone number will only be used to contact the student directly regarding the scholarship if he/she needs to submit anything further or is the scholarship winner. CCIS uses encryption to maintain protections over their internal systems and prevent unauthorized access. CCIS only collects information that is willingly given by the student. Although the company does utilize Google Analytics, that information is non-personal and only used in order to better service the customers based on website traffic and content. Many browsers will allow the visitor to accept or deny cookies that provide this information. California Contractors Insurance Services will issue a reward letter and check to pay out the recipient of the scholarship.
