Protecting SAGE member privacy is of the highest importance. SAGE pledges that it will never disclose “Sponsor” information, including, but not limited to e-mail address, name, Social Security number, mailing address, or any Tuition Rewards account information to groups not responsible for your Tuition Rewards accrual or to non-member colleges & universities.
By volunteering your e-mail address, SAGE is able to notify you from time-to-time about updates to our program – for example, when additional colleges, financial providers, and partners join our consortium. Again, e-mail addresses are not shared for commercial purposes outside of the SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards consortium. The names and contact information of SAGE account holders are NOT rented or sold to other organizations. If you volunteer your e-mail for the purpose of receiving announcements from your health plan, then the health plan may send information about other programs and offerings for which you may be eligible.
COLLECTION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION (“PII”) BY SAGE SCHOLARS, INC.
Information: SAGE collects personally identifiable information when you voluntarily submit the information to us in order to create, register or update your Tuition Rewards account. This information may include PII such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, certain asset, policy or banking account number(s), and a Social Security number. The information we may collect varies based on the requirements for data tracking set forth by the financial partner with whom you are earning Tuition Rewards.
Cookies: Cookies are small bits of information that the Internet site operated by SAGE Scholars places on the hard drive of your computer. These cookies are used to store “session” information and are required to enable account log in functions. At no time does the cookie contain any PII.
PROTECTING CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

MEMBER COLLEGE & UNIVERSITY ACCESS TO INFORMATION
Member colleges have access to the SAGE Scholars student database, for free, where they can search for students who are sponsored in the SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards program and / or the SAGE Scholars MyFourYears.com Site, and are currently in high school grade 9 or higher. Member schools can retrieve records on students consisting of name, mailing address, and, if voluntarily provided, telephone number, e-mail address and other data as provided by the child’s Sponsor or Sponsors. Member colleges and universities also have access to the size of each student’s Tuition Reward once allocated. Unless otherwise indicated by the sponsor or account holder, no Sponsor contact or financial information is made available to member colleges, nor is student information available to any parties other than Member Colleges and SAGE.
