ADEA CAAPID Policies
policies that govern ADEA CAAPID are recommended by the ADEA CAAPID Advisory
Group, an official committee of ADEA. ADEA CAAPID makes every effort to process
and transmit application materials to the programs designated by the applicant.
ADEA, however, assumes no responsibility for delays in processing application
materials caused by the applicant’s failure to follow instructions or
circumstances beyond ADEA CAAPID’s control. It is the applicant’s
responsibility to monitor his or her ADEA CAAPID application and report any
discrepancies or problems.
does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, creed, religion,
national origin, marital status, age or handicap. Such information in the ADEA CAAPID
application is requested only for the purpose of gathering and reporting
applicant flow data or to confirm information used to process the application.
ADEA Privacy/Confidentiality Statement
The American Dental Education Association (ADEA)
will generally not release personally identifiable data without the permission
of the individual involved. Except as described below, information about
individual applicants and matriculates is not shared with anyone outside of
ADEA in a way that would permit individual identification.
Information about applicants is disclosed to the schools
and/or programs to which a student applies using one of ADEA’s centralized
application services. Information about applicants who use one of ADEA’s
centralized application services may also be disclosed to a limited number of
third-party organizations that are involved in the application process and
tuition assistance services, such as those that use information to identify and
contact applicants who may be eligible for scholarships. Applicants to one of
ADEA’s centralized application services will be required to release their
application information and supporting documents by agreeing to the Release
Statement and Code of Conduct within the application.
Application data submitted by an applicant will
generally not be shared with third-party individuals or organizations. ADEA
will only discuss an application with the applicant and the applicant’s
designated schools and/or programs. Staff will not discuss an application with
a parent, spouse, relative, friend or employer of the applicant. ADEA reserves
the right to release information from an applicant or matriculate’s file to:
(i) respond to information requests by law enforcement or other governmental
authorities; (ii) comply with any law, regulation, enforceable subpoena or
other legal process or court order; (iii) investigate or prevent security
threats, fraud, malicious activity or inappropriate, unauthorized or illegal
activity involving ADEA’s services or computer networks; or (iv) enforce or
protect ADEA’s rights and property. In such circumstances, personal information
may be disclosed without notice to the individual applicant or matriculate.
ADEA may disclose to the public data that it
gathers through its centralized application services in aggregate de-identified
form. ADEA reserves the right to use applicant data, including individually
identifiable applicant data, for its own purposes, including research
purposes. However, in publishing research, ADEA will not include
individual applicant information.
