Use for personalization and pedagogical improvements
We aim to provide current and future users of each service with the best possible educational experience. We may conduct research intended to enhance Merrivale Ventures LLC’s instructional offerings and the quality of learning and related sciences more generally. To further these goals, we sometimes present different users with different versions of program materials and software. We do this to personalize the experience to the individual learner (assess the learner’s level of ability and learning style, and present materials best suited to the learner), to evaluate the effectiveness of our program materials, to improve our understanding of the learning process, and otherwise to improve the effectiveness of our offerings and teaching and learning more generally. We may publish or otherwise publicize results from this process, but will only share Personally Identifiable Information as otherwise permitted under this Privacy Policy.
Links to other applications and websites
A service may contain links to websites and mobile applications published by third parties, including other content providers as well as certain service providers, such as those who process payments on behalf of Merrivale Ventures LLC. These other websites and applications are not under our control, and you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for the collection and use of your information by such websites and applications. We encourage you to be aware when you are redirected to a third-party website or application and to review the privacy policies and terms of use of each website and application you visit and use.
Merrivale Ventures LLC has a program designed to protect Personally Identifiable Information in its possession or control. This includes a variety of privacy and security policies, processes and procedures, including administrative, physical and technical measures. Nonetheless, no method of collection, storage or transmission is entirely secure, and we cannot guarantee that our security measures will be effective.
Consent to processing outside home country
You understand and unambiguously consent to the collection, use, disclosure and retention of information in the United States and other countries and territories, for the purposes set forth in this Privacy Statement and the Merrivale Ventures LLC Terms of Use or such other terms of use as may be provided for the applicable service. You consent to the collection, use, disclosure and retention by Merrivale Ventures LLC of your Personally Identifiable Information and other information as described under this Privacy Statement, including but not limited to the transfer of your Personally Identifiable Information or other information between Merrivale Ventures LLC and the third parties and affiliates described in this Privacy Statement. For further certainty, any consent relating to a right to transfer information referred to in this paragraph shall be deemed to include your consent to the transfer of the applicable Personally Identifiable Information to a jurisdiction which may provide a different level of privacy protection than that available in your own country. 
Collection of data from children
Our Services are generally not intended for users under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect personal data from anyone under 18 years of age. If we become aware that a person under 18 years of age has registered, we will delete any Personally Identifiable Information of such person from our records.

Please also note that this information will be provided only once per calendar year.

By registering for, accessing or using any of the Services after any changes have been made, you signify your agreement to the modified Privacy Policy and all of the changes, which will be effective immediately unless we notify you of a later effective date.

“If you want to find the tools to figure out what you want to do, and how to find your Soul Career, then this is definitely the place.” 

When we think about careers we usually think of it as something we should chase. In Soul Career you get the ability to really slow down and assess what you want.  

“It’s easy to get caught up with the situations and the overwhelming time we’re in. I’ve learned to stay positive and stay occupied.”

Soul Career was definitely worth it. It took me on a journey of  self-reflection in the beginning. And then introduced job search tools at the end. I learned about myself and what I need to do to get the job that I want.”

“The Soul Career course taught me that I need to make sure that I was super invested in my first 90 days at my job”

We invest in a lot of things like clothing, trips, travelling and gym memberships. Why not invest in something that’s going to propel you and your professional career to places you couldn’t even dream of.”

to be added…

“Before Soul Career I assumed that jobs were not meant to be enjoyed. I thought jobs were just something that you had to do to pay the bills. But coming out of this program, I recognize that you can find something that actually suits you.”
