For example, our Online Job Application is stored for the purpose of providing you and our Human Resources Department access to the account. No information collected is shared with any other party.

Cookies

CCPS may place a small text file, called a "cookie", in the browser files of your computer. The cookie enables us to track your use of our website to determine which areas you use most frequently. It enables us to see what portions of the site interest you most, but this is anonymous in nature. That is, it does not contain any personal information about you. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you prefer, you can set your browser to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent.

Log files

The District uses Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. IP addresses are used to gather broad demographic information, such as a visitor's country, operating system, browser types, frequency of visit, and so on.

Security

CCPS takes reasonable precautions to protect your personal information. When you submit information via the website, it is protected both online and off-line. When personal information is required, that information is stored in a secure file on our server. This information is not accessible from the web.

We also take precautions to protect user information off-line. All user information is restricted to authorized employees. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific task, for example, a Human Resources staff member, are granted access to personal information. The server used to store personal information is kept in a secure environment.
