Information We Provide and Collect

We are the owners of the information, educational materials and other content (collectively “Content”) we provide through our Platform. This Privacy Policy specifies our rights to the information provided by you and/or collected through our Platform. Your information includes the information you provide in setting up your user account when you purchase our books, guides, courses or other materials (collectively our “Products”). We only have access to and/or collect information that you voluntarily provide us via our Platform, any email you send us, your user account, or other direct contact from you. We do not require you to set up a user account to access our website; however, an account is necessary to access our online platform and acquire our Products. For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” will include all personally identifiable information that is specific to you (e.g. name, address, phone number, email address, etc.). Except as specifically noted herein, we do not provide any Personal Information to any unaffiliated third party.

We may collect information about you through your use of our Platform with software application tools and data files, such as cookies, web log files, IP addresses, device state information, unique device identifiers, device hardware and OS information, and information relating to your login of your user account (“Usage Information”).

You may be required to permit such Usage Information to log into your user account or to purchase our Products.

We may collect and process information through our Platform about the location of your device using GPS or other location technologies, such as sensor data from your mobile device providing information about nearby Wi-Fi access points and cellular network towers (“Location Information”). We use Location Information solely as necessary to analyze and improve our Platform and Products.

We may use Location Information to customize Products or information specific to your region. You have the ability to control access to Location Information through the control settings on your device.

Third party service providers, in addition to any of our data sources, may include software development, application and data hosting, wireless network services providers, payment processors, and any digital analytics or marketing services (collectively “Third-Party Providers”). We are responsible for assuring that these Third-Party Providers comply with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Except for our Third-Party Providers, we will not share Personal Information, Usage Information, or Location Information with an unaffiliated third party without your prior authorization, unless doing so is necessary (1) to enforce this Privacy Policy, to comply with law, regulation or other legal processes or to protect the rights, property or safety of us or others, (2) to comply with a valid order or process from a public authority, (3) to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Platform, or your user account, (4) to detect or prevent criminal activity or fraud, or (5) in the event that we or substantially all of our assets are acquired by one or more third parties as a result of an acquisition, merger, sale, reorganization, consolidation or liquidation, in which case such information may be one of the transferred assets.

You may opt out of any future contact from us at any time. Depending on where you live, you may have certain legal rights under applicable law. For example, you may have the following rights:

  • Right to Correct – means you may ask us to change and/or correct any Personal Information we have about you.

We take precautions to protect your Personal Information, including reasonable physical, administrative, and technical safeguards. When you submit Personal Information via our Platform, your Personal Information is transmitted using secure sockets layer (SSL) encryption technology. We restrict access to your Personal Information to our authorized personnel and/or Third Party Providers as appropriate and necessary to provide our Platform, Products and/or maintain your user account.

We keep your Personal Information if it is necessary to process your requests, operate our business, and provide our Platform and Products, or as long as we are legally required to do so.  For as long as we have your Personal Information, we will continue to protect the privacy and security of such Personal Information consistent with this Privacy Policy. However, no website, database or system is completely secure or “hacker proof.” You are also responsible for taking reasonable steps to protect your Personal Information against unauthorized disclosure or misuse. You are also responsible for protecting the security of your user account credentials and for any use of your user account.

Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act

In compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, 15 U.S.C. § 6501.06 and 16 C.F.R. §§ 312.1 – 312.12, we do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13, nor does our Platform or our Products target children under the age of 13. By using our Platform, Products, and/or creating any user account, you represent that you are not younger than 13. Please contact us as noted below if you know or suspect that we have collected information from children under the age of 13 and we will take prompt measures to remove such information.

Cross-Border Transfers of Personal Information

Our systems are located in the United States and we may also locate systems in other locations where we or our service providers maintain facilities. Unless otherwise requested by our clients, backups made from locations within the European Economic Area remain within the European Economic Area. The storage location(s) are chosen in order to operate efficiently, to improve performance, and to create redundancies in order to protect the data in the event of a server outage or security incident.

We may transfer personal data from the European Economic Area and Switzerland to other countries, some of which have not been determined by the European Commission to have an adequate level of data protection. When we do, we use a variety of legal mechanisms, including contracts, to help ensure your rights and protections travel with your data; such contracts will conform to the standard clauses specified under the GDPR and we will remain liable for the protection of such Personal Information.

If you are located anywhere outside of the United States, please be aware that information we collect, including Personal Information, may be transferred to, processed in, and stored in the United States. By accessing our Site or Platform or providing us with Personal Information, you consent to the transfer, processing, and storage of Personal Information in the United States.

Personal Information is processed according to the provisions of this Privacy Policy and the requirements of applicable law wherever the data is located. If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that data protection laws in the United States may differ from those of the country in which you are located, and your Personal Information can be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in the United States in accordance with and subject to the laws of the United States.
