1. What information do we collect and what do we do with it?

When you enrol as a student or subscriber (“learner”) on our site or related courses, as part of the enrolling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, date of birth, business details, email address and other contact details. We also collect data in relation to any course undertaken on our site, such as course results and answers to questions contained in any course (Course Data).

Email marketing: we, as well as the Australian Digital Commerce Association Ltd (ACN 169 053 534) (ADCA), may send you emails about our site and related course(s), registration, course content, your course progress or other updates. We and the ADCA may use your email to inform you about changes to the course, survey you about your usage, or collect your opinion. With your consent we and our affiliates may, as well as the ADCA, send you marketing and promotional material such as updates, information, materials, news, and offers, including but not limited to material or offers from third parties.

Course Data: we may share Course Data and personal information to a third party site where:

·        you have accessed our site through that third party site;

·        we reasonably believe that third party site has requested that information on your behalf;

·        you have provided express or implied consent to the information being provided to that third party site; or

·        otherwise for the purpose of the third party site providing you with a related service at your request.

Statistical and research purposes: We and ADCA may aggregate and de-identify your personal information and Course Data with the personal information and Course Data of others for our statistical purposes, and we may disclose that aggregated information to third parties for marketing, statistical, or research purposes provided that such information remains permanently de-identified. 

When you visit the site, information that does not identify you and is non-personal, is collected. This information may include your server address, the time, date and duration of your visit to the site, the type of browser, device and operating system you use, and the pages you visited. We and ADCA may use this information to improve our corresponding services, and for marketing, statistical and research purposes, and we may disclose that aggregated information to third parties for marketing, statistical, or research purposes provided that such information remains permanently de-identified. 

2. How do you get my consent?

When you provide us with personal information to become a learner on our site, make a purchase, or participate in the course, you imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no. For example, we may ask for your consent to use your personal information for marketing and promotion purposes when you enrol as a learner on our site.

How do I withdraw my consent?

If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us.

3. Disclosure

In addition to other disclosures referred to in this Privacy Policy, we may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service. 

4. Hosting Platform

Our course and site is hosted by a third party, which may change from time to time without notice, and you acknowledge that your data will be stored through that third party’s data storage, databases and general application.

Our online course site is currently hosted by Thinkific Labs Inc. (“Thinkific”). They provide us with the online course creation platform that allow us to sell our product/services to you. Your data is stored through Thinkific’s data storage, databases and the general Thinkific application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

5. Payment

If you make a purchase on our site, we use a third party payment processor such as Stripe or Paypal. Payments are encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. 

All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our site and related courses and its service providers.

6. Third Party Services

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. 

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

Certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. If you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Once you leave our course site or are redirected to a third-party site or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our site’s Terms of Service.

7. Links

When you click on links on our course site, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.

8. Security

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption.  Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
