11.  Security of Personal Information

The security of your personal information is important to us. We have implemented a variety of physical, administrative and technological safeguards designed to preserve the integrity and security of all personal information we collect. Our employees are required to protect personal information in a manner consistent with the terms of this Privacy Policy, and violators will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination and further legal action.

Please be aware that despite our best efforts, no data security measures are impenetrable and we cannot guarantee the security of our systems 100%.  In the event that any personal information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and take all steps required by law and regulations. You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared device, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.

Passwords and all sensitive user data is encrypted and securely stored while in motion and at rest.

12. Payment and Financial Information

If you make a purchase on the Site, we use a third-party payment processor such as Stripe or Paypal. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology. 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 via a third provider, Stripe.  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. 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 the Site and related courses and its service providers.

13. Third-Party Services

Some content or applications on the Site may be served by third parties, content providers and application providers including the following:

  • Plugins. The Site makes available the option for you to use “plugins” that are operated by social media companies. If you choose to use one of these plugins, then it may collect information about you and send it back to the social media company that owns it. This may happen even if you do not click on the plugin, if you are logged into the social media website that owns the plugin when you visit our website. Information collected by a plugin is subject to this Privacy Notice and terms of the social media company that makes it. If you do not want the social media company who owns a plugin to collect information about you when you visit the Site, sign out of the social media network before visiting the Site. By interacting with a plugin when you are on the Site (for example, clicking the Facebook “Like” button), you are intentionally transferring information to that social media company. Further, if you are logged into a social media website when you visit the Site, then you are directing us to share your data with the social media company that owns the plugin.
  • Third-party links. The Site may contain links to other websites, which we do not control. Those websites have their own privacy policies and terms, and 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 website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Notice or our website’s Terms of Service.

We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.

Pupil records shall be deleted and/or de-identified within two (2) years or less after the termination of the contract term with the School so that the School can continue to access past records, unless and to the extent that the School submits a deletion request for records to be deleted prior to that date.  See “Retention and Deletion” above to learn more.
