Privacy Policy

While exploring the tools and resources SocialWork.org has to offer, you may be prompted to provide personal information. The following privacy policy details what data we collect and why, and how it may be used.

Why does SocialWork.org ask for personal data?

In an effort to provide you with the most relevant social work resources, we may ask you for non-sensitive personal information, including name, gender, contact details, academic interests and your general location. The data you provide allows us to customize your search results to better fit your needs.

While you are on our site, we automatically collect and record your IP address, operating system and the pages you visit. This allows us to monitor site traffic and performance, and it gives us information on what resources our users find most useful.

Will my information be shared?

No. Though there are some sites that sell users’ contact information to third parties, we do not. The details you provide us will be used to improve user experience, and only our staff will see or use this information.

There are extenuating circumstances, however, where we may be legally required to share your information. If any of the following situations occur, you will be notified by one of our employees.

  • If the site is required to provide user details for a federal investigation or legal case
  • If the site is sold to or merging with another
  • If there is a security breach that threatens the safety of our staff and users

How will I be contacted?

Using the information you freely provide us, we may contact you via physical mail, email or over the phone. If you willingly supply us with your telephone number, federal “Do Not Call” lists no longer apply to our site.

How can I contact you?

If you have any comments, questions or concerns and would like more information on our privacy policy or the content of our site, please visit our Contact Us page and drop us a line.
