Real Careers take pride in the accuracy of our database of information. On our website please check your profile. If you believe that personal factual information in your records is inaccurate, we make it easy for you to access, verify and update it on-line.

We follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information you have given to us and may, on occasion, request proof of identity before we disclose any professional information to you.
Since websites are quite organic in their evolution, the best way to keep them current and vital to members is to find out what parts of a site are most used. Using Google Analytics, we track where users go on the site and/or mobile app however, we do not gather information on individual users. For example, we can list how many users came to the site and/or mobile app from another domain and what they did, but we do not know exactly who they are unless they use their member ID and password to login to our secure member site.
We really want to know what members are interested in, so we can provide more of it. We want to know areas that they are not using, so we can improve the website and/or mobile application. We also use some of the more interesting statistics in newsletters, to share popular areas with members, and help increase the efficiency of the site.
The information is used internally, to review the effectiveness of our communications. Some statistics and trends are shared with various Institutes, committees, councils and members through newsletters.
If a member chooses to give us personal information via our website or mobile application in order for us to correspond with him/her, or process an order, for example, it is our intent to share with you just how we intend to use the information. Real Careers will accept, acknowledge and maintain any customer’s or member's request to opt-out of future non-essential communications from Real Careers regarding the promotion of its seminars and special events. Newsletters, academic information and National Education Month are regular member communications.
If you have any questions or concerns about your personal information retained by Real Careers, please contact our privacy officer at 1-866-362-8585.
