VAM receives and collects personally identifiable information about a student or alumni user (such as name, contact information, demographic information, academic history, employment history, etc.) via the website when they register for services and continue to use services that may require personal information.

Alumni and students that use the VAM software will have access to some of the information provided by potential matches, for matching purposes.

However, despite taking normal and customary computer security measures to protect electronic data, breaches can and do occur with many organizations, and so there can be no guarantee that your information will not be accessed by unauthorized parties.

The VAM program consists of University of Virginia Alumni volunteering their time to serve as mentors and answer your questions.

Due to the volunteer structure of the VAM program, we cannot guarantee that the information shared is accurate and up to date.

The University of Virginia and the VAM program do not accept responsibility for any information shared in the VAM database or by a VAM volunteer.
