This is a U.S. Government Website owned by the United States Marine Corps Recruiting Command.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information Collected and Stored Automatically:
For management of the Website, certain non-personally identifiable information ("Non-Personally Identifiable Data") is collected by us, through the standard operation of our web servers and through use of "cookies" (described more fully below), for statistical purposes, including, without limitation, for market research activities. This Website uses software programs to create aggregated, anonymous statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing what information is of most and least interest to the Website visitors, determining optimal technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas so that we can work on improving such areas of the Website. We also use Non-Personally Identifiable Data collected by us to improve and enhance our users' experience on the Website. For example, we may share Non-Personally Identifiable Data with unaffiliated third parties, such as business partners, manufacturers, distributors and retailers, in an aggregate, anonymous form, which means that the shared information will not contain nor be linked to any user's personally identifiable information.
For Website security purposes and to ensure that this Website remains available to all users, this Website employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change user information, or otherwise cause damage.
The USA.gov website, http://www.usa.gov/optout_instructions.shtml, provides general instructions on how to opt out of cookies and other commonly used web measurement and customization technologies. Opting out of cookies still permits users to access comparable information and services; however, you may not be able to take full advantage of the Website if you do so. Additionally, it may take longer to navigate or interact with the website if a user is required to fill out certain information repeatedly.
Personally Identifiable Information:
Participation in the Website is totally voluntary. You are under no obligation to provide any information and/or personal data to the Website. However, in order to utilize some of the services or features, such as registering for an account, participating in the Connect and Share Program, or being contacted by a recruiter, you may be asked to provide certain personally identifiable information ("PII") about yourself. PII can include, without limitation, your first and last name, photograph, mailing address, e-mail address, rank, unit, and service information. By providing any PII, you hereby acknowledge and grant us the right to verify any PII that you provide, including but not limited to any information you provide about your current or past service with the Marine Corps. You may also be asked to submit PII about other users so that you can share content from the Website via email. You are not authorized to submit any PII of another user unless you have consent from such user to submit such PII to us. You hereby represent and warrant that you have the necessary authorization to submit any such PII about any such other user.
The security of your PII is very important to us. When we collect your PII, we use reasonable efforts to protect it from unauthorized access. However, due to the inherently open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that your PII will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers and your use of the Website demonstrates your assumption of this risk.
We expressly disclaim any liability, and you expressly release us and the United States Marine Corps, Department of the Navy, and Department of Defense from any claim, relating to access through shared networks or workstations.
Your Disclosures on the Website:
Your Disclosures on Third Party Sites:
You should be aware that PII or any other information which you voluntarily include and transmit online to third party websites (including but not limited to blogs and social media sites) may be viewed and used by others without any restrictions. We are unable to control such uses of your PII or other information, and by using such services you assume the risk that the PII or any other information provided by you may be viewed and used by third parties for any purposes. Therefore, you are cautioned not to offer any information of a personal or of a sensitive nature.
Protection for Children:
This Website is not intended for, and we have no intention of collecting PII from anyone who is not at least 17 years old (or 16 years old and a junior in high school or equivalent). If a child who is not at least 17 years old (or 16 years old and a junior in high school or equivalent) has provided us with PII, that child's parent or legal guardian should contact us at LifeAsAMarine@marines.com or Lead Generation Officer, 3280 Russell Road, Quantico VA 22134, if the parent or legal guardian would like the information submitted by the child deleted from our database that contains information submitted by users of the Website. If we are so contacted or if we otherwise become aware that PII from a child who is not at least 17 years old (or 16 years old and a junior in high school or equivalent) has been collected without such child's parent or guardian's consent, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database. MCRC will also delete information at the request of a parent or guardian for any minor, regardless of age.
