From time to time, we will share your personal information with our partners and vendors (including payment processing companies such as Stripe and PayPal and email marketing service MailChimp) to help us provide you with the Products and the Platform. We do not collect your financial information, our partners do it for us. Please be sure to read the privacy policies of any such partner and vendor.

A “cookie” is a small piece of data sent along with pages of a website and stored by the user’s web browser on the user’s computer or mobile device. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember certain information (such as items added in a shopping cart) or to record a user’s browsing activity (including clicking particular buttons, logging in, or recording which pages were visited in the past). Cookies are intended to help you access a site faster and more efficiently because they can store information to help you enter a website without having to log in. In effect, cookies tell the website that your browser has been to the site before. It does not need to know your exact identity. Cookies can also be used to remember arbitrary pieces of information that the user previously entered into form fields such as names, addresses, passwords, and credit card numbers.
Browsers may accept or reject cookies automatically but allow you to change these settings. The help menu on most browsers will tell you how to change your browser’s settings and how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable cookies all together. You can also disable or delete cookies you have previously accepted if you wish to.
By using the Platform, you agree that we may install technical or functional cookies. These cookies ensure that certain parts of the Platform work properly and that your user preferences remain known. By placing functional cookies, we make it easier for you to visit our Platform. This way, you do not need to repeatedly enter the same login information when visiting our Platform. We may place these particular technical and functional cookies without your consent.
Cookies we use:
Cookie, Pixel or Plug-in Name
“LearnDash LMS” WordPress plug-in
To track how many times a user logged in and to track a user’s IP address all in order to save and show you your course progress in participating the online courses we offer
“GamiPress” and “BuddyBoss” plug-ins
To track usage of achievements and badges collected over a period of time
FOR HOW LONG DO WE PROCESS THE COLLECTED DATA?
Your personal information is only processed for as long as needed to achieve the purposes which are described above or up until such time where you withdraw your consent for processing it, unless we or any other third party have an overriding interest in keeping your personal information identifiable or when there is a legal or regulatory obligation or a judicial or administrative order that prevents us from de-identifying your personal information.
We may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of our assets, including your personal information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy.
The security of your information is very important to us. We apply all reasonable security measures and comply with the industry standards to protect your personal information (including, preventing the loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction of your personal information). Notably, access to the Platform’s database with your personal information is held behind administrative logins and managed, controlled and limited to authorised website administrators and support technicians only. Data transmitted between browser and application servers is encrypted using an HTTPS/SSL certificate. We do not collect or store your passwords. We use XSRF against cross-domain attacks. Data is backed up daily. The Platform’s server software is updated regularly to ensure we are running the latest and safest software (where applicable and depending on compatibility). The server’s firewall is configured to prevent unauthorized access, and activity is automatically monitored to detect and ban malicious activity.
Please be aware, however, that despite our efforts, no security measures are impenetrable. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Thus, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure and do not warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
When you use your login credentials on our Platform, you are solely responsible for keeping them confidential. Do not share them with anyone. If you believe your password has been misused, please contact us immediately. You are also responsible for the security of your personal devices and for making sure they are protected against unauthorized access.
WE DO NOT RESPOND TO DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
Our Platform does not respond to and does not support the Do Not Track (DNT) header request field. If you turn DNT on in your browser, those preferences will not be communicated to us in the HTTP request header, and we will continue tracking your browsing behaviour.
MINORS (CHILDREN) POLICY
We are committed to protecting children’s personal information. We have a minimum age requirement for those who wish to register for an Account or sign up for one of our monthly membership plans.

- the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or that affects you significantly.
If you would like to exercise any of the above rights, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We represent and warrant that your personal information is: processed lawfully, fairly and transparently; collected only for specific legitimate purposes; collection of personal data is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary; accurate and kept up to date (with your help); stored only as long as is necessary; and is secure and kept in confidence.

Therefore, we will make sure your personal information will be erased under all of the above-mentioned circumstances. You may request us to erase your personal information verbally or in writing and we have one (1) month to respond to any such request.
Data Breach Notification: Should there be a personal data breach leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed, we will notify you and appropriate supervisory authority without undue delay and, where feasible, not later than seventy-two (72) hours after having become aware of it.
YOUR RIGHTS UNDER CCPA
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) is a state-wide data privacy law that regulates how businesses all over the world are allowed to handle the personal information of California residents. CCPA provides California residents with five core rights to data privacy and an effective way to control their personal information.
If you are a California resident, you have the following rights with regard to your personal information:
- the right to know what personal information is being collected about you.
- the right to know whether your personal information is sold or disclosed and to whom.
- the right to say no to the sale of personal information (“the right to opt out”).
- the right to access your personal information (under CCPA, a business may provide personal information to a consumer at any time, but shall not be required to provide personal information to a consumer more than twice in a 12-month period);
- the right to equal service and price, even if you exercise your privacy rights.
Additionally, a California consumer has the right to request that a business delete any personal information about the consumer which the business has collected from the consumer. However, a business or a service provider shall not be required to comply with a consumer’s request to delete the consumer’s personal information if it is necessary for the business or service provider to maintain the consumer’s personal information in order to:
- complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected, provide a good or service requested by the consumer, or reasonably anticipated within the context of a business’s ongoing business relationship with the consumer, or otherwise perform a contract between the business and the consumer;
- detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; or prosecute those responsible for that activity;
- debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality;
- exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise his or her right of free speech, or exercise another right provided for by law;
- comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act pursuant to Chapter 3.6 (commencing with Section 1546) of Title 12 of Part 2 of the Penal Code;
- engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the businesses’ deletion of the information is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of such research, if the consumer has provided informed consent;
- enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with the expectations of the consumer based on the consumer’s relationship with the business;
- comply with a legal obligation;
- otherwise use the consumer’s personal information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which the consumer provided the information.
Conflict resolution under CCPA: Prior to initiating any action against a business for statutory damages on an individual or class-wide basis, a California consumer shall provide a business 30 days’ written notice identifying the specific provisions of this title the consumer alleges have been or are being violated. In the event a cure is possible, if within the 30 days the business actually cures the noticed violation and provides the consumer an express written statement that the violations have been cured and that no further violations shall occur, no action for individual statutory damages or class-wide statutory damages may be initiated against the business. Contact us should you need to exercise any of your rights under CCPA.
