Privacy Policy

Welcome to the Ohio Arts Council’s Art$Work Web site (“site”) developed by the Ohio Arts Council (“OAC,” “We,” “Us,” “Our”). This policy covers how We use and treat information collected and received through the Art$Work site by individuals who are searching for employment (“Job Seeker” or “User”) and companies that provide employment, internship, and/or volunteer listings (“Job Poster,” “Company,” or “User”).

General Privacy Considerations

The OAC takes reasonable precautions and makes reasonable efforts to protect privacy, when appropriate, depending upon the nature of the information to be protected. We cannot, however, guarantee absolute privacy. As the OAC is a publicly-funded state agency, information provided by Users of this site may be made available to members of the public pursuant to the Ohio Public Records Law.

The Information We Collect AND How We Do It

We only collect information that is knowingly and voluntarily input into the system directly by the User in response to particular prompts or fields.

Job Seekers

We do NOT at this time collect any personally identifiable information from Job Seekers, nor are Job Seekers required to input any personally identifiable information in response to particular prompts or fields before using the site. Job Seekers simply access the contact information of the Companies that post employment, internship or volunteer listings on the site.

Job Posters/Companies

We DO require Companies to provide basic information when using this site. In order for a Company to provide job postings, it will be required to provide Us information upon registration such as its name, phone number, address and main discipline. This is not personally identifiable information per se, as no individual is being readily associated with that particular Company. We do require the Company to provide the name of a contact person at registration, but this information is for Our internal use only. In some instances, though, a Company may want to provide a particular contact person to the Job Seeker to receive inquiries about the Posting. In this instance, that individual could be readily associated with the particular Company using the site. This would be the extent of the personally identifiable information known about that person to a Job Seeker.

Use of Cookies

The OAC may set and access Art$Work cookies on the computer of organizations only. No other individuals or companies have access to Art$Work cookies.

How We Use Your Information

As stated above, we do not collect or maintain more personally identifiable information than is reasonably necessary for the operation of this site. All of the information collected at this site may be stored in Our database for an indefinite period of time. We may supplement, aggregate, or combine the information collected at this site with information from Our other databases and from other OAC sources to produce reports for the legislature consistent with Our statutory mandate and to fulfill any requests made pursuant to the Ohio Public Records Law.

Links to Other Web Sites

This site may contain hypertext links to other Web sites. We are not responsible or liable for the content, transmissions, or privacy practices of such sites.

Policy Revisions

We have the right, at any time and without notice, to modify the terms of this Policy. Any revisions made to this Policy will take effect immediately upon its posting to Our site. Your access to or use of the site after the date such amended Policy is posted shall be deemed to constitute Your acceptance of the amended Policy.
