Google Analytics Provider
The website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally processed on a Google server in the USA and stored there.
You can prevent cookies from being saved by setting your browser software accordingly. In this case, you may not be able to fully use all the features of this website. In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting and processing the data (including your IP address) related to your use of the website (including your IP address), as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at install: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Use of the newsletter service provider “MailChimp”
From time to time, we send newsletters with information relevant to customers and interested parties using the MailChimp platform of the US supplier Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave, NE # 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA (“MailChimp”).

Storage in the US
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as further data as described in this section, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA.

These third party service providers and other persons may also share with us information that they have independently developed or acquired. We may combine aggregate information from pixel tags, web beacons and cookies with similar data we collect from other visitors to help us improve our Services.

Our Agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
Protection of ourselves and others: We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we reasonably believe is necessary to comply with governmental requests, respond to court orders, to enforce our policies, or to protect our or others’ rights, property or safety. We may share information to prevent illegal uses of our products and Services or violations of the Terms, or to defend ourselves against third party claims. We may also share information with companies assisting in fraud protection or investigations.

We will notify you when an affiliated business is associated with your transaction, and we will only share Personal Information with them that is related to your transaction or otherwise necessary.
Learnship will use all legal means to eliminate piracy of our software. As part of these efforts, Learnship software included in the Services may include a security mechanism that can detect the installation or use of illegal or modified copies of the software, and collect and transmit data about those copies. This data collection is not designed to be performed on users of legally licensed software obtained from Learnship or its authorized resellers. If you do not consent to the collection and transmission of such data (including to the United States), you must not use our software.
The Personal Information, Your Content and other data we collect is stored on a secure, password-protected server and only authorized personnel or third parties with whom we contract have access to your Personal Information. We use industry-standard encryption technologies with respect to the receipt and transfer of Personal Information you submit. Nevertheless, despite our best efforts, no transmission over the Internet or mobile network and no data storage method can be guaranteed to be safe 100% of the time. Learnship cannot and does not ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit or guarantee that your Content or other data stored on the Services may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our industry standard physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. Therefore, while certain of our features employ enhanced security measures, you agree that you are solely responsible for maintaining appropriate security measures to protect Your Content and other data from unauthorized access and disclosure, and for keeping backup copies of all Your Content and other data, and to advise fellow Users to do likewise, in order to prevent catastrophic loss. Learnship has no responsibility or liability for deletion, corruption or other damage to or loss of Your Content or other data, including, but not limited to, any content submitted, posted, or otherwise related to a Session, no matter what the cause.
When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) we encrypt such information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Your Content and other data you provide in connection with our Services are hosted on servers in the United States or in foreign jurisdictions. If you are located outside of the United States, the Personal Information you provide to us may be transferred to the United States. By submitting your Personal Information, you consent to its transfer and storage in the United States and its use in accordance with the purposes for which it was originally collected.
Your password is the key to your account. We urge to you to use unique numbers, letters and special characters, and to keep your password secure.
Deactivating Your Account
Upon your request, or in the event we terminate your account in accordance with our Terms, we will deactivate your account and remove your account from view as soon as reasonably possible, based on your account activity and in accordance with applicable law. We may retain Personal Information, Your Content, Public Content, and other data from closed accounts to the extent necessary to comply with applicable law, prevent fraud, assist with any investigations, enforce our Terms, take actions we deem necessary to protect the integrity of the Services or our Users, or take other actions otherwise permitted by law.
If you remove information that you posted to the Services, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Services, or if your Employer, other Users or third parties using the Services have copied or saved that information.
Communications From Us
We may use your email for both transactional (e.g., order confirmation) and promotional (e.g., newsletters, special events, new product offerings, special discounts, special offers by us or other third parties) purposes. Email messages we send you may contain code that enables our database to track your usage of the emails we send you, such usage includes whether the email was opened and what links (if any) were clicked.
You may “Opt Out” of receiving most emails by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org asking us to remove you from our email list. You acknowledge that it may take up to ten (10) days for us to process an opt-out request. Unsubscribing will stop you from receiving most types of communication, but it may not apply to emails about orders or transactions you place through the Services or to respond to your specific requests. If you are participating in the Sessions, you will still receive related communications even if you otherwise opt-out of our email list.
Learnship does not knowingly collect or solicit any information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for the Services. The Services are not directed at children under the age of 13. In the event that we learn that we have collected Personal Information from a child under age 13 without parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits residents of the State of California to request certain information regarding our disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please email us at email@example.com.
We may choose to transfer all or part of our business assets in a sale. If we (or our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, Personal Information may be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.
