Privacy Policy

5 Strong cares about respecting the privacy of our scholars and applicants, their families, our partners, and others we work with. That’s why we created this privacy policy — to better serve those who are concerned with how their Personally identifiable information (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully for a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect, or otherwise handle your PII

Any changes to our privacy policy will be posted here.

What personal information do you collect from the people who visit your website, blog, or app?
As a visitor to our site, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, GPA, or other information so we can meet your needs.

When do you collect information?
We collect information from you when you submit an application, enter information on our site, register for our newsletter, make a donation, sign up for our newsletter, respond to a survey or marketing communication, visit the website, or use certain other site features.

How do you use the information?
We may use the information we collect from you in the following ways:
• To process your transactions.

How do you protect visitor information?
Our website is scanned on a regular basis for security vulnerabilities and malware in order to make your visit to our site as safe as possible. We do not use an SSL certificate and we never ask for personal or private information like email addresses or credit card numbers.

Can I unsubscribe from your emails?
Yes. You can always email us at and we will promptly remove you from all correspondence.

Do you use 'cookies'?
Only if you have chosen to allow them and even then, we do not use cookies for tracking purposes. Essentially, visitors can browse our site anonymously if they choose.

You can choose to turn off all cookies through your browser (like Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser's Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

If you disable cookies, some features that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly.

Do third parties have access to me information?
No. We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your PII to outside parties, nor do we allow third party behavioral trackingWe do not even include or offer third party products or services on our website.

How does your site handle Do Not Track (DNT) signals?
We do not track signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a DNT browser mechanism is in place.

Are you compliant with the California Online Privacy Protection Act?
Yes. CalOPPA is the first state law to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting PII from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy.

Are you compliant with the Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)?
Yes. When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, COPPA puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces COPPA, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.

What happens if there’s a data breach?
Because we take security precautions, this is an unlikely event, but as with all responsible online actors, we are prepared to act with urgency, transparency, and responsiveness. If in the event of a data breach, we will notify all users via email within one business day and continue to apprise them of our response regularly.

We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
