Licensing

Career Dimensions licenses the use of its applications to use Focus 2 and grant access to their end users, and other third parties. Individuals not affiliated with organizations that license the applications, may also access the platform by purchasing a single use license for themselves that is valid for a specified time period.

Information We Collect

Information is provided in 2 ways: when provided directly by an end user, or the entity that has licensed the use of Focus 2 using technology such as Single Sign On, and when it is automatically collected by our sites.

End User from a School or Entity that has Licensed Focus 2.

The end user, typically a student, will provide information about themselves voluntarily which is required to create a unique user account. This includes First Name, Last Name, a Username created by the user and a password. Other information that may be collected at the discretion of the Licensor may include email address and other information such as addresses, and phone numbers. If the Licensor is using Single Sign On we collect First Name, Last Name, and a unique identifier for that user, typically email address.

End User that has Purchased an Individual License.
