Does CollegeVine protect essays submitted for review?

Two questions:

1 - if I submit an essay for review, could it get plagiarized?

2 - if a college runs my essay through a plagiarism checker, will it say I plagiarized it because I posted on Collegevine?

Essay Review works on an honor system -- plagiarism is technically possible, but no more likely than on any other online community for feedback on your writing. Collegevine also can help users verify they’re the original author.

Colleges use internal plagiarism checkers to compare the essays of their applicant pool -- they don't have access to essays posted on CollegeVine.
