Privacy Policy

I. Introduction (the "Website" or the "Site") is an Official website for the Marine Corps Officer Selection Station in Manhattan and Garden City. By visiting, using and/or accessing the Website and any of the features made available to you by the Website, you hereby agree to this privacy policy. If you do not agree with these privacy policy or terms of service, you are not authorized to access and/or use any portion of the Website. The privacy policy and terms of service shall remain in full force and effect while you use or access the Website. It is your responsibility to periodically review the most up-to-date version of the Privacy Policy and Terms of Service located here and on the Terms of Service page. We may, in our sole discretion, modify or revise the Privacy Policy and Terms of Service at any time, and by continuing to access the Website after such modifications or revisions are posted, you agree to be bound by such modifications or revisions. Nothing in these Terms of Service shall be deemed to confer any rights or benefits on you or any third party.

Pursuant to Section 503 of Title 10, United States Code, the information requested on this Website may only be used in connection with recruiting people interested in serving in the Marine Corps (including but not limited to providing the information you submit to recruiters or officer selection officers), for registering for the site and for sharing content from the Website via email. Disclosure is voluntary, although declining to provide information may prevent users from filling out an initial screening questionnaire ("Lead Form") for recruitment purposes, accessing certain areas of the Website or sharing content via email. Filling out a Lead Form may result in you being contacted by a recruiter or officer selection officer. Declining to fill out a Lead Form may result in not being contacted by a recruiter or officer selection officer.

II. Information Collection

When you visit the Website, we may collect certain personal information, including but not limited to your name, address, email address, rank, unit, and service information. This information is collected when you fill out an initial screening form ("Lead Form") for recruitment purposes or when you register for an account to access certain features of the Website.

III. Use of Information

We use the collected personal information for the purpose of contacting you in response to your Lead Form submission, providing you access to specific features of the Website, and personalizing your experience on the Website. We may also use your information to communicate with you about updates or changes to the Website or its policies, as well as for internal analysis and improvement of the Website.

IV. Information Sharing

We will not share your personal information with third parties without your consent, except as required by law or to fulfill the purposes for which the information was collected. This may include sharing your information with recruiters or officer selection officers of the United States Marine Corps.

V. Security

The security of your PII is very important to us. When we collect your PII, we use reasonable efforts to protect it from unauthorized access. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that your PII will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers, and your use of the Website demonstrates your assumption of this risk.

We expressly disclaim any liability, and you expressly release us and the United States Marine Corps, Department of the Navy and Department of Defense from any claim relating to access through shared networks or workstations.

VI. Links to Other Websites

Our Website may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of those websites. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third-party websites you visit.

VII. Your Disclosures on Third Party Sites

You should be aware that PII or any other information which you voluntarily include and transmit online to third party websites (including but not limited to blogs and social media sites) may be viewed and used by others without any restrictions. We are unable to control such uses of your PII or other information, and by using such services you assume the risk that the PII or any other information provided by you may be viewed and used by third parties for any purposes. Therefore, you are cautioned not to offer any information of a personal or of a sensitive nature.

VIII. Protection For Children

This Website is not intended for, and we have no intention of collecting PII from anyone who is not at least 17 years old (or 16 years old and a junior in high school or equivalent). If a child who is not at least 17 years old (or 16 years old and a junior in high school or equivalent) has provided us with PII, that child's parent or legal guardian should contact us, if the parent or legal guardian would like the information submitted by the child deleted from our database that contains information submitted by users of the Website. If we are so contacted or if we otherwise become aware that personally identifiable information from a child who is not at least 17 years old (or 16 years old and a junior in high school or equivalent) has been collected without such child's parent or guardian's consent, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.

IX. Unsubscribe

If you no longer wish to be contacted by us, you may unsubscribe by following the instructions contained at the bottom of any email communication you receive from us, clicking the following link, and reaching out to us via email and expressly requesting to have your contact information removed from future correspondence. Please note that there might be a brief delay between when you submit your request to unsubscribe and when it is processed and reflected in our systems; accordingly you might continue to receive communications from us for a limited time after you send your unsubscribe request.

X. Website Terms of Service

Use of this Website is governed by, and subject to, the Terms of Service contained at This Privacy Policy is incorporated into such terms. Your use, or access, of the Website constitutes your agreement to be bound by these provisions. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR OTHERWISE USE THE WEBSITE.
