Cookie Policy

Scholarship America uses certain web technologies including cookies, web beacons, clear gifs, and pixels (collectively, “cookies and other technologies”) to assist us in providing better service. These cookies and other technologies do not identify you personally and are not connected to any data you provide on Scholarship America’s website.  They provide technical and behavioral information such as the IP address, device type, browser type, and device identifier used to visit the website, the date and time of your visit, the pages you view, the websites you visited before and after visiting that Site, and (where permitted by your device) location data.  Our services and sites currently do not recognize “do not track” signals that may be sent by certain browsers.

Web browsers typically allow some control of most cookies through browser settings. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits this.  Declining cookies may prevent you from taking full advantage of our Site.

Cookies are divided into four primary categories:  (1) Strictly Necessary Cookies (such as those used for password-protected log-in areas, online calculators or language selection); (2) Performance Cookies (such as Web traffic monitoring services like Google Analytics); (3) Functionality Cookies (such as use of contact forms, viewing embedded YouTube videos, or using social media features included on our Sites); and (4) Targeting Cookies (typically placed by third parties for advertising purposes).

Category 1 cookies enable services you have specifically asked for.  Category 2 cookies collect aggregated, and therefore anonymous, information about how visitors use a website—for example, which pages visitors go to most often.  Category 3 cookies remember choices you make on our Site and permit us to provide services you have asked for to improve your experience on this Site.  Category 4 cookies are used to deliver advertising that is relevant to you and your interests, to limit the number of times you see a particular ad and to help measure advertising effectiveness, in the event that Scholarship America engages in third-party advertising on this Site.

Other third parties may deliver cookies to your device in order to track your online behaviors over time and across nonaffiliated websites or to deliver targeted advertisements either on this Site or on other websites.   You have choices about the information third parties may collect about you through this Site.  For example, if you do not want your information sent to a third party, you may download an Opt-out Browser Add-on by clicking here.

By using our website, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device, unless you limit them using your browser settings.
