Please Accept Our Privacy Policy

Commitment Privacy Policy Overview

Thank you for visiting the Indiana INTERNnet Web site (the "Site"). We are committed to protecting your privacy and we voluntarily provide this privacy statement in support of this commitment. Indiana INTERNnet wants to provide a safe, secure, helpful user experience for students, University professionals, and the business community. Therefore, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the information you provide and submit to us remains private, and is used only for the purposes as set forth herein.

The following discloses our current information gathering and dissemination practices, which may change from time to time, for this Site, which is accessible at the following domain names: IndianaINTERN.net; IndianaINTERNnet.com; and IndianaINTERN.com.

Nonpersonal Information Gathering

We will collect no personal information about you unless you choose to provide personal information to us. Therefore, if you do nothing but browse through the Site or download information from the Site, no personal information will be gathered. However, we will gather and store certain information that does not identify you personally. Such nonpersonal information may include the Internet domain name and the Internet Protocol address from which you access the Site; the type of browser and operating system used to access the Site; the date and time you access the Site; the address of any Web site from which you used a link to access the Site; and the Site pages, areas and services you accessed during your visit. This nonpersonal information helps us determine what services and tools are most beneficial to our visitors, and how we can best serve the student, university and business communities. As such, we may share this non-personal information with our partners, so that they too may tailor their services and sites to better serve our visitors.

Specific Information Gathering

The Site's intern-matching service cannot be anonymous. Rather, we must have personal contact information to facilitate the matching process. Therefore, if you wish to become a user of the Site's intern-matching services, then you must also choose to manually input contact information such as your name, email address, university, academic major and daytime phone number. This contact information will be used to contact you when necessary to send notifications of matching internship opportunities. The information may also be used to inform you of additional opportunities or services or of Site changes.

During your visit, Indiana INTERNnet may also ask you to choose to provide survey information, such as likes or dislikes regarding the Site, types of internship opportunities or jobs that are of interest, and demographic information (like age, region of the state, academic year, school in attendance, or academic interests). This information is requested in an effort to deliver to you the most relevant information and to provide you the best possible internship experience.

Demographic and profile data is used to tailor each visitor's experience at our site; to provide content that we think each visitor might be interested in; to display content according to each visitor's preferences; and to create individualized database search criteria to accelerate each visitor's search process.

Contact Information

As noted, any contact information (such as email address) and academic school or department, is used to contact the visitor when necessary. After you have registered, we may provide you with a password, which, for your further protection, you may have to provide in order to gain access to the non-public areas of the Site.

Resumes

Indiana INTERNnet is an internship link and matching site. As such, you may choose to submit your resume and contact information for inclusion in our member database. By submitting your resume and contact information, you agree to allow authorized employers, recruiters and university personnel to access your resume. Indiana INTERNnet will use commercially reasonable efforts to grant access to this database only to authorized employers, recruiters, hiring managers, headhunters, human resource professionals, and university career professionals and personnel, but Indiana INTERNnet cannot guarantee that unauthorized parties, such as hackers, will not, without our consent, gain access to the database.

Communications with Potential Employers

Due to the nature of internet transactions and the volume of registrants, Indiana INTERNnet is not in the position to guarantee the status and authenticity of every person and entity that registers to participate in the Indiana INTERNnet program. To better assure the privacy and integrity of your personal information and guard against potential fraudulent activities, Indiana INTERNnet strongly advises that you independently verify the status and authenticity of the persons representing themselves as employer representatives. Before communicating any sensitive information to a designated contact person, Indiana INTERNnet recommends that you confirm the authenticity of both the employer and the designated contact person. This may be accomplished by contacting the company through a means separate and independent of that provided by the initial contact person. If you believe you uncover an individual that has misrepresented his status for the purpose of committing a fraud, please let us know and contact the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at 1.800.382.5516 or 317.232.6330.

Changing Contact, Resume or Profile Information

Indiana INTERNnet gives you the option of changing and modifying information previously provided to the Site. To do so, go to IndianaINTERN.net, click on your personal account link and enter your user name and password. From your account, select the appropriate links to change or modify your profile or contact information, or to submit an updated resume. While you may remove or modify your resume from our searchable database at any time, you also acknowledge that authorized parties may have retained a copy of your previously posted resume in their own files or databases. Therefore, you agree that we are not responsible for the retention, use, or privacy of resumes in these instances, nor the use or privacy of resumes by any of such parties while resumes are in the database. You may also choose to participate in the Site's chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups. Please remember that any information you choose to disclose in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. Please refer to our Terms document for other information pertinent to such forums.

Third Party Web Sites and Links

The Site may contain links to other sites. Once you link to another site(s), you are subject to the privacy policy of the new site(s) Indiana INTERNnet is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites. Please refer to our Terms document for other information pertinent to links to external sites.

Children

The Site is intended for the use of high school-age students, college-age students, university professionals and employers. The Site is not directed to children and it does not specifically collect information from children under the age of thirteen (13); therefore, and because Indiana INTERNnet is a nonprofit organization, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) does not apply to the Site. However, we choose to protect children within the spirit of COPPA as follows. We understand that children under the age of thirteen may access and choose to provide personal information in the hope of securing an internship or employment opportunity. We encourage such children to seek their parents' or guardians' consent and advice before registering on this, or any other site, and/or before giving out personal information. We also ask the children to provide the contact information of their parent(s) or guardian(s) so that we may notify them that the child is providing personally identifiable information. A parent or guardian may request to see and have deleted any information about their child, and request that we do not collect further information from or about the child. Any such requests will be complied with after we verify the identity of the requesting parent. Finally, we urge parents and teachers to be involved in children's Internet explorations. It is particularly important for parents to guide their children when children are asked to provide personal information on line. We highly recommend that parents view with their children the Federal Trade Commission's Web site at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/edcams/kidzprivacy/index.html to learn more about how COPPA protects children's privacy online.

Modification and Termination of this Agreement

If Indiana INTERNnet decides to change our privacy commitment for any reason, changes will be posted here so that students, universities and employers will always know what information we gather, how that information might be used, and whether it will be disclosed to anyone.

"Bringing students to intern at Amatrol will get my kids fired up about what they are doing in class."

"Interns bring fresh eyes to question some of our Toyota processes. Additionally, we hope our internship program will help Toyota with student recruitment for our workforce needs."

"I think we'll end up getting better employees because of this experience!"

"It was great to have a lot of hands-on work, rather than just shadowing. I was able to learn about all the different departments of an advertising firm. I knew I wanted to work in advertising, but now I know that I want to be a senior art director."

"We would not be where we are today without our interns!"

"It was rewarding to help my student understand the true potential of her talents."

"At the end of the experience, our intern accepted a full-time position with our company. Her background, including education and experience - combined with internship performance - was the deciding factor in offering the position."

"IndianaINTERN.net is the first site I visit to post for summer interns. The site is heavily visited by students who are seriously seeking internships. Summer after summer, I have consistently hired interns who contacted me via the site, and they all worked out well. I will continue to use IndianaINTERN.net every chance I get!"

"From my prospective, IndianaINTERN.net worked great and is a fantastic service! Within minutes of filling out the internship requirements, there were four automated candidates recommended specifically for our needs. We called them and two were hired within a week. Both have taken the bull by-the-horns and hit the ground running on OWN IT!, Opportunities With New Information Technology, a special project to improve the culture in education. Stay tuned in 2012 to view the work our interns have accomplished by visiting www.kellytouch.com"

"I found my Slingshot SEO internship on Indiana INTERNnet. I am doing more and learning more than I thought was possible in an internship. It is so unique to work in an environment where interns are treated with such recognition and respect. I cannot say enough praises about Slingshot SEO, the employees, the culture, and the internship program. I highly recommend this internship to any college student who wants unique, real world experience at a fast-paced company with an awesome culture. I promise that you will never be bored! This is not an ordinary internship."

"Rook relies on our intern program to recruit and develop young professionals into a rapidly growing team. Without it, our ability to scale would be severely hindered."

"I am an intern in the Human Resources department at Parkview Health and have loved every minute of it. I work with the talent acquisition team to review applications and set up interviews with applicants. This was very beneficial for me because now I know what employers look for in an application and a resume. There are too many duties to mention, but I have learned so much here at Parkview. It has truly been an amazing experience!"

"A perfect match for my internship contacted me within two days of my posting the availability. Indiana Intern is a wonderful service!"

"My internship with Rain Ponchos Online started on March 12, 2012. During that time, our website has seen massive improvements, with the keywords we are trying to rank for on Google going from the 10th page to the 2nd page. I have learned a ton in the process; our sales have improved; our customer base is growing rapidly, and our website designed has improved. I've developed Twitter, G+, and Facebook pages for the website. My company found me through Indiana INTERN.net, which was recommended to me by my school. I highly recommend this website to any college student looking to gain experience in their major."

"I was lucky enough to find an internship right in the career field of my interest -- a blend of both technology and criminal justice. I worked with the FWPD Hostage Negotiation Team to improve a system that helped each team member communicate with one another during hostage situations and log important details for later court appearances. Working with the FWPD has been an amazing learning experience that helped me gain a better understanding of the expectations from employers."

"EverEffect contacted me via Indiana INTERNnet, in response to my application. I was originally supposed to have a three month internship, but they hired me as a member of the team after two weeks! I am so happy with this firm, and thank you to everyone at Indiana INTERN! "
