When you use our website, you are agreeing to be bound by this Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") and by our Website Terms and Conditions of Use (collectively, the "Terms and Conditions"). If you do not agree with the Terms and Conditions, please do not use our website.






NCSA Athletic Recruiting is committed to respecting your privacy. We recognize the need for appropriate protection and management of the personally identifiable information (or "Personal Information," as discussed below) you may share with us through this website, and we have established this Privacy Policy so you understand the care with which we intend to treat your Personal Information, how we may use your Personal Information and the choices you have about the way your Personal Information is used. To make this Privacy Policy easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where Personal Information may be collected.


This Privacy Policy provides notice regarding our collection and use of Personal Information. You may choose whether or not to provide Personal Information to us. If you choose not to provide the requested Personal Information, you can still visit most parts of our website, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers and services that involve our interaction with you.




Our business may change from time to time. As a result, at times, it may be necessary for us to make changes to this Privacy Policy. You are advised to consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes. Each time you visit this website or provide us with information, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy as in effect at that time. This Privacy Policy may be updated or modified from time to time for any reason without prior notice. We will notify you of any material changes to our Privacy Policy by posting the new Privacy Policy on our website or by emailing you. Your continued use of this website after any changes or revisions to this Privacy Policy shall indicate your agreement with the terms of such revised Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy you may not access or otherwise use this website or participate in our services. This Privacy Policy was last updated on the date indicated below.




If at any point we decide to use particular Personal Information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email or by providing 30 days’ notice on this website. Please note that we will continue to have the right to change our Privacy Policy and practices, and how we use your Personal Information, without notice, as described in the preceding paragraph of this Privacy Policy, provided that such changes shall only apply to information gathered on or after the date of the change. You are responsible for ensuring we have an up-to-date active and deliverable email address for you, and for periodically visiting our website and this Privacy Policy to check for any changes.




"Personal Information" means personally identifiable information, in other words, any information that may be used to identify a specific person, such as: first and last name, home or other physical address, email address, other contact information (whether work or home), date of birth, scholastic information (such as school, class/year, class rank, grade point average, awards/honors and extracurricular activities), athletic information (such as sports, positions, awards/honors and records), physical traits and characteristics (such as height, weight and build) and similar information. This Privacy Policy applies to all Personal Information collected or submitted through NCSA Athletic Recruiting's website.




OUR WEBSITE IS NOT DIRECTED TO, OR INTENDED FOR, CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE. NCSA Athletic Recruiting understands that protecting the privacy of young children is important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain Personal Information through our website from users we actually know are under 13 years of age, and no part of our website is designed to attract users under 13 years of age. No Personal Information should be submitted through our website by users under 13 years of age. If a user under 13 years of age submits Personal Information to our website, we delete such Personal Information as soon as we discover it was provided by a user under the age of 13 and we do not use it for any purpose. If NCSA Athletic Recruiting were to knowingly collect Personal Information from users under 13 years of age, we would do so in accordance with Children's Online Privacy Protection Act and modify this Privacy Policy accordingly. We encourage parents to take an active role in their children's use of the Internet, and to inform them of the potential dangers of providing information about themselves over the Internet.






In general, you may visit and use NCSA Athletic Recruiting's website without telling us who you are and without revealing any Personal Information about yourself. However, you may be asked to provide Personal Information, and we may collect and maintain your Personal Information, if you request that we contact you, if you subscribe to email newsletters or our similar communications, if you apply or register to receive our services or if you wish to participate in or receive other products, services or information through our website. You can decline to provide your Personal Information to us, in which case you may not be able to access certain parts of our website and we may not be able to provide certain services to you.


We may collect Personal Information from you through our website in various ways, such as by asking you specific questions, by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail or feedback forms or by providing online registration forms, questionnaires or other materials which solicit Personal Information.


Personal Information submitted on this website primarily consists of three sub-categories: Public Information, Semi-Public Information, and Private Information.

Public Information. “Public Information” is Personal Information that you provide that is available to anyone on this website. This includes, but is not limited to, data such as your full name, graduation year, sport, athletic information (including sport and position), height and weight, age, current school, pictures, and videos and other information you make available on your public recruiting profile. We or others may freely use this data. . If you choose to submit content to any public area of this website, including your public recruiting profile, then such content will be considered Public Information and will not be subject to the privacy protections set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Semi-Public Information. “Semi-Public Information” is Personal Information that you provide that is available to certain other registered users of this website and is required from all registered users. This includes, but is not limited to, your postal address, phone number, email address and academic information (including grade point average, awards/honors and extracurricular activities).


Private Information. “Private Information” is Personal Information that you provide that we do not share with other Service users. This includes, but is not limited to, your password, privacy settings, credit card number, and billing and shipping information.




The most important benefit of using this website and our services is the ability to proactively gain exposure and connect to individuals, institutions and organizations that can assist with your collegiate recruiting and admission process. Our website may also provide opportunities for you and other users of NCSA Athletic Recruiting to connect with each other socially and to view each other’s profiles. To achieve this, the Personal Information you provide may be shared with other users and/or select third parties as described in this Privacy Policy.


A core function of this website is connecting users with college coaches and other users, so sufficient information needs to be presented to help each side to decide if it’s worth making a connection. For example, registered college coaches can always see a user’s full contact information and academic information. For college coaches, this means that athletes can see which school you are associated with, and information you provide about yourself, your team, and your college or university in your profile, as well as certain actions you take on this website.


Therefore, when you apply or register through our website to receive NCSA Athletic Recruiting's services, you are agreeing that NCSA Athletic Recruiting may share your Personal Information with other users and with third parties as necessary to provide our services to you (such as when a student-athlete's Personal Information is provided to a college coach or athletic director for evaluation).


In addition to the foregoing, NCSA Athletic Recruiting may use and share your Personal Information as follows:

  • To provide our services to you.

  • To respond to communications, inquiries and requests from you, such as responding to an email you send to us.

  • To send you newsletters, as well as other advertising, marketing and promotional materials and communications.

  • To inform you of products, services and promotions for NCSA Athletic Recruiting or third parties.

  • To offer you information regarding certain products and services of our partners, sponsors, advertisers and affiliates.

  • To conduct transactions with you through our website.


Additionally, NCSA Athletic Recruiting may use and share your Personal Information with, and you may also receive information from, nonprofit and for profit companies and organizations and government agencies, including, but not limited to, (i) educational products and services (e.g. student loans, financial aid, college admissions and tutorial services, and extra-curricular enrichment and recognition programs); (ii) career, employment, and military opportunities; (iii) athletic apparel and equipment companies; and (iv) camps. Except as set forth herein, NCSA Athletic Recruiting does not sell your information to commercial marketers offering to sell you non-education and/or non-sports related products and services, unless you choose to opt in to these services by responding to an advertisement.


We will not otherwise share your Personal Information with any other third parties, without your consent, except in the following circumstances:

  • To help us deliver programs, products, information and services, and to conduct transactions through our website or to support the business operations of our website, when our third party vendors or suppliers (such as transaction processors, financial institutions, application service providers, web hosting providers, Internet service providers and technical support providers) may receive your Personal Information in connection with providing their services to NCSA Athletic Recruiting. (However, such third parties are only authorized to use your Personal Information for the purpose of providing their services to NCSA Athletic Recruiting and are required by us to treat your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.) 

  • Certain actions you or others take on our website may indicate ways in which we or our partners can further assist you in your recruiting process, and we may use your Personal Information to do so. For example, if we believe you would benefit from an introduction to a particular partner, we may initiate an introduction. If you do not wish to have your Personal Information shared based upon specific actions you have taken on our website, go to your privacy settings and disable this setting, if present. If we are not currently contemplating connecting you with our partners based on your specific actions, you may not see such a setting. Please note that opting out of these communications will not otherwise limit our ability to use your Personal Information as otherwise permitted in this Privacy Policy.

  • In the event that we are party to a business transition, such as a merger, divestiture, acquisition, liquidation or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your Personal Information, in most instances, will be part of the assets transferred. 

  • To respond to law enforcement requests or, where required by applicable laws, court orders or government regulations.


Additionally, you may "opt out" of receiving promotional communications from NCSA Athletic Recruiting either by choosing to "opt out" where such option is made available on our website or at any time by contacting us at the address, phone number or email address shown at the end of this Privacy Policy. We endeavor to process such "opt out" requests within ten (10) days of receipt.


Please note that changing your information through the your user profile settings, or otherwise opting out of receipt of communications from NCSA Athletic Recruiting, will only change or delete the data for purposes of future activities on our website and for managing future communications from NCSA Athletic Recruiting. These changes and deletions will not change or delete emails or information that we may have already forwarded to other users or credit card companies or any other third parties, all as provided in this Privacy Policy. If you have any questions or concerns about this Privacy Policy, the practices of our website, or dealings with our website, please feel free to contact us at: Opt outs may be device-specific, so please consult the help section of your web browser or settings on each device.


If you do not want your Personal Information shared with any third party who may use such information for direct marketing purposes, then you may opt out of such disclosures by sending an email to us at




NCSA Athletic Recruiting also may collect and maintain information from you that is not Personal Information. Such non-Personal Information may be used for many purposes, including marketing, demographic and/or statistical purposes, and we may share such non-Personal Information with third parties. We may use aggregate non-Personal Information to better design our website, and we may share such information with our partners, sponsors, advertisers and affiliates. For example, we may tell an advertiser that "X" number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that "Y" number of men and "Z" number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose any Personal Information that could be used to identify those individuals.

This means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a visitor if required by law, when disclosure is required to maintain the security and integrity of our website or to protect any user's security or the security of other persons, consistent with applicable laws.

Therefore, you assume that risk by using our website.

We ask that you not share your password with anyone. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on our website

Our website may contain links or references to third party owned and/or operated websites that we believe might be of interest to users, including websites of our partners, sponsors, advertisers and affiliates. We do not control the content of these third party websites. These third party websites may send you their own cookies, collect data or solicit Personal Information. Once you have clicked on a link to a third party website and leave our website, you must read the privacy policy of the third party website to see how your Personal Information will be handled.
