Information We Collect

Urban Interns is a communications platform for enabling the connection between individuals seeking services ("Service Recipients") and/or individuals seeking to provide services ("Service Providers")(collectively, "Users"). Accordingly, we collect user-submitted personally identifying information and other information specific to the services requested or provided. As part of providing you our services, we may obtain personal information from the following sources:

-Information you provide to us on forms that you enter on the Site or that you provide to us in writing.
-Information that you provide to us by telephone, such as when you contact our customer care department.
-Information we receive automatically when you visit our web site. Please see "Cookies and other Technical Data" below.
-Information from third parties, including verification services, payment processing services, and other online and offline sources. For example, this would include information we receive from a third-party verification service in response to a user requesting a background check on themselves. It would also include updated address or contact information that we might use to correct our records so that we can communicate with you more easily.

We use the information we obtain to develop and deliver our services, to provide you with information that you request, to enhance your online experience, and to fulfill legal requirements.

Providing your information is voluntary and you can always choose not to provide it by choosing not to use our Site, services, or features.


To help prevent the unauthorized access of your information, and to maintain the accuracy of the information that we collect, we have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. Unfortunately, data security can never be 100% effective. As a result we cannot promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information will remain secure in all circumstances.

If Urban Interns is required by law to notify you of a data security breach, Urban Interns will decide, based upon its own judgment, the method in which to contact you (e.g., e-mail, writing and/or phone) about the breach.


If you use our blog on this Site, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in this forum.

If you post a job and/or contact another user, the information that you provide, including any personally identifiable information that you provide, will be made available to third parties.

In addition to the situations described above, Urban Interns may share the information that you provide in the following circumstances:

(i) Urban Interns may share your information with subcontractors that provide us with services, including, but not limited to, the creation or maintenance of our databases, research and analysis concerning the people who use our services, marketing of the services as permitted by the Terms of Use, or the processing of information;

(ii) If you post a job opening with Urban Interns, Urban Interns may re-post, or re-publicize that job opening on other websites that are not owned or controlled by Urban Interns.

(iii) Urban Interns may report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we reasonably believe to be unlawful, or that we reasonably believe may aid a law enforcement investigation into unlawful activity. In addition, we reserve the right to release your information to law enforcement agencies if we determine, in our sole judgment, that either you have violated our policies, or the release of your information may protect the rights, property or safety of Urban Interns, you, or another person.

(iv) Urban Interns may share your information with others as required by, or permitted by, law. This may include sharing your information with governmental entities, or third parties in response to subpoenas, court orders, other legal process, or as we believe is necessary to exercise our legal rights, to defend against legal claims that have been brought against us, or to defend against possible legal claims that we determine in our sole discretion might be brought against us.

(v) In the event that Urban Interns, or substantially all of Urban Intern’s assets are acquired, your information may be transferred to the acquiring company. In such a situation, you will be provided with notice that a transfer of your information is imminent, and you will be given an opportunity to opt-out of the transfer of your information.

Age of Users

Urban Interns is intended for people 18 or older and in registering for this site, Users are verifying that they are 18 years or older. We have also made an effort to specifically limit Urban Intern’s appeal to people of age 18 or older. Urban Interns will not knowingly collect any information from children under the age of 13.

Urban Interns does not assume any responsibility for misrepresentations regarding the age of any User made in connection with any User's registration for or use of the Site. We may terminate without notice the membership of any User if we believe that the User has provided any false information to us when registering for or using this Site.

IP Addresses

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to a computer whenever it is being used to surf the Web. Web servers automatically identify computers by their IP address. Urban Interns may collect IP addresses for the purpose of system administration, to prepare aggregate information, and to monitor the use of this site.

Search Engines

Search engines, such as Google and Bing, are owned and operated by third parties.  We have no control over such third parties, including, without limitation, their indexing and "crawling" of information for search purposes.  Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, as of the Effective Date, Urban Interns shall use reasonable efforts to ensure: (a) if a Service Recipient creates a profile on the Site, it will be crawled by Google and other search engines and likely posted in listings; (b) if a Service Recipient posts a position on the Site, the name of the Service Recipient will not appear in Google listings unless the Service Recipient provides their name in the body of a post (e.g., "COMPANY X is looking for a social media intern."); and (c) if a Service Provider posts a profile, the information posted in it will be crawled by Google, except for the name of the Service Provider, except if the Service Provider posts their name in any field other than “name.” You should, therefore, not put your name in any field other than the name field if you do not want it available via search engine.
