This policy may be changed or updated from time to time. By using one of our services, you accept the practices described in this policy. This policy is effective starting 17th July 2017.
We can give you information about your career options that we hope is useful; but how you choose to use this information is up to you. We don’t take responsibility for the outcomes of your choices.
Moreover, while the aim of our service is to provide you with information about how to help the world, we don’t support courses of action that may be harmful to your physical or mental well being.
Our coaches are not professionally qualified career advisors. We recommend you use our advice alongside a professionally qualified advisor.
Please note that though we take reasonable precautions to keep your information private, we do not take responsibility for damages caused by data that is accidentally leaked or stolen.
We will not share the written data you submit to 80,000 Hours with anyone outside our organisation (the Centre for Effective Altruism US and UK).
At the start of the coaching process you can request by email that your personal information (or certain parts of your information) be kept confidential between you and your advisor. We will also attempt to accommodate other reasonable privacy requests.
Sometimes it’s helpful for us to let potential employers, industry experts or other potentially useful contacts know about your situation. When we do so we err on the side of caution and try to avoid telling them sensitive information. At the start of the coaching process, you can request that your personal information be kept confidential between you and your advisor, or request that particular information not be shared. We will also attempt to accommodate other reasonable privacy requests.
If you apply for coaching after being referred to our service by a third party, we may let this third party know whether your coaching application was successful. This feedback helps our supporters ensure they are referring appropriate candidates to the service. If you do not want to us share the result of your application with your referrer, please state this on your application.
We will not share personal information or records of our conversations with anyone outside of our organisation (the Centre for Effective Altruism US and UK) without your consent.
We reserve the right to, in exceptional circumstances, to pass on personal information, where there is a legal or ‘duty of care’ imperative. Even in these circumstances, we would normally seek to explain this to the individual concerned.
