Cape Fear Community College Career Connection Privacy Policy

The Career Services office at Cape Fear Community College (CFCC) is committed to ensuring the privacy of users of its Career Connection system.

The Career Connection system is provided in partnership with NACE, the National Association of Colleges and Employers, Direct Employers Association Inc. (a non-profit association comprised of a cooperative of employer members dedicated to enhancing the use of the internet for recruitment) and Symplicity Corporation, a software development company that maintains and operates NACElink.

Employers use NACElink to post employment opportunities and search the central resume database directly on, and CFCC uses NACElink to provide a web-based system for job postings, as well as a resume database for its job seekers and employers.

CFCC students use NACElink through Career Connection to post resumes, review job opportunities, and apply to opportunities.


All data collected for the job listings/resume database are stored on NACElink secure servers. NACElink has technical, administrative, and physical security measures and safeguards in place to protect against loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under NACE’s control. Information and data collected are used for evaluation of employment activities, evaluation of educational programs, and reports developed for placement and salary surveys.

NACE cannot use or sell individual candidate data. Please refer to the NACElink Privacy Statement for technical details and a description of the site. Unlike commercial vendors, NACE staff cannot look at individual data. Only CFCC Career Services staff members can retrieve individual candidate data. Students should contact Career Services if they have any concerns about the use of their information.

The Career Services office at CFCC has associated itself with NACE and NACElink in order to provide improved career services to CFCC students. While CFCC believes that NACE and NACElink provide a valuable service to our job seeking community, NACE and NACElink are not related to CFCC; therefore, CFCC cannot guarantee nor does it otherwise accept responsibility for any portion of this Statement that depends upon NACE’s representations and its compliance with those representations.

Privacy Policy Changes

At any time, CFCC may deem it necessary and appropriate to modify this privacy policy to reflect changes in the way that CFCC and NACE collect and use information or changes in privacy-related laws, regulations, or industry standards. Accordingly, CFCC and NACE reserve the right to change this privacy statement at any time by posting the revised policy on this site. Information will be handled according to the privacy statement in effect at the time the information is used.
