ONCOURSE LEARNING PRIVACY POLICY

 

Effective May 25, 2018 

Introduction.  OnCourse Learning Corporation, on behalf of itself and its affiliates, (together, “OnCourse Learning” or “we” or “us”) is the operator of multiple websites* (collectively, the “Site”) ”) and mobile applications** (collectively, the “Apps”). We know privacy is important to you; it is also vital to our business.  This Privacy Policy describes who we are, the types of "Personal Information" (information that is identifiable to a particular person) that OnCourse Learning collects (directly or through service providers) in connection with the Site and the Apps, how that Personal Information is used, shared and protected, and how you can exercise your privacy rights.  This Privacy Policy is considered part of the Terms of Use at www.oncourselearning.com/termsofuse/ (the “Terms”).  If you have any questions or concerns about our use of Personal Information about you, please contact us using the contact details provided at the bottom of this Privacy Policy.  We recommend that you read this Privacy Policy in full to ensure you are fully informed.

 

1. What does OnCourse Learning do?

OnCourse Learning Corporation is a leading provider of licensure, continuing education, and compliance training headquartered in Brookfield, Wisconsin, United States.

For more information about OnCourse Learning, please see the “About Us” section of the Site at https://www.oncourselearning.com/aboutus/.

 

2. What Types of “Personal Information” We Collect, and How We Collect, Use and Disclose It.  The Personal Information that we may collect about you broadly falls into the following categories:

a. Personal Information you directly submit to us.  OnCourse Learning may provide you the opportunity to do such things as subscribe to email alerts regarding OnCourse Learning events or company news, to request company information, or to request product or service information through an email contact form.  Such information may include your name and/or username, your company’s name, your personal or company email address, or other contact information. It is up to you whether to provide this information.  Such information will be used and disclosed as reasonably necessary to meet your needs and respond to your requests, such as disclosing it to our email service provider to send you emails or to one of our affiliated entities to provide you with requested product information.

 

b. Information that we collect automatically. When you visit the Site or use the Apps, we may collect certain information automatically from your device or the browsing software that it uses. In some countries, including countries in the European Economic Area, this information may be considered Personal Information (or “personal data”) under applicable data protection laws. Details about this information are provided in Section 5 below (Cookies, browser information and tracking technology).

 

c. Personal Information that we obtain from third party sources. From time to time, we may receive Personal Information about you from third party sources, but only where we have checked that these third parties either have your consent or are otherwise legally permitted or required to disclose Personal Information about you to us.

 

d.  Disclosure. OnCourse Learning may disclose Personal Information about you to third party service providers and partners who provide data processing services to us (for example, to support the delivery of, provide functionality on, or help to enhance the security of the Site and/or the Apps), or who otherwise process Personal Information for purposes that are described in this Privacy Policy or notified to you when we collect Personal Information about you.  Parties with whom we may share Personal Information are bound to contracts requiring them to use and disclose Personal Information only for the permitted purposes set forth in the contract and to use reasonable security measures to protect Personal Information from unauthorized access and use.

 

OnCourse Learning may also disclose Personal Information about you to an actual or potential buyer (and its agents and advisers) in connection with any actual or proposed purchase, merger or acquisition of any part of our business, provided that we inform the buyer it must use Personal Information only for the purposes disclosed in this Privacy Policy.

 

OnCourse Learning may also use and disclose Personal Information to comply with laws, regulations, court orders and lawful instructions from government agencies and accrediting bodies, where we believe disclosure is necessary (i) as a matter of applicable law or regulation, (ii) to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights, or (iii) to protect your vital interests or those of any other person.

 

3. Legal basis for processing Personal Information.  If you are a visitor to the Site or a user of the Apps from the European Economic Area (EEA), our “legal basis” under EEA law for collecting and using the Personal Information described above will depend on the Personal Information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

 

However, we will normally collect or otherwise process Personal Information from you only (i) where we need to process the information to perform a contract with you, (ii) where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights, (iii) where we have a legal obligation to process the information, (iv) where we need to process the information to protect your vital interests or those of another person or (v) where we have your consent to do so.

 

If we ask you to provide Personal Information to comply with a legal requirement or to enter into a contact with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of Personal Information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide Personal Information).

 

If we collect and use Personal Information about you in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), this interest will normally be to operate the Site or the Apps and communicating with our customers as necessary to provide our services and for our legitimate commercial interest, for instance, when responding to your queries, improving the operation or security of the Site and/or the Apps, understanding (through analytics) how the Site and/or the Apps is used, undertaking marketing, or for the purposes of detecting or preventing fraudulent, abusive or illegal activities. We may have other legitimate interests and if appropriate, we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.

 

If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use Personal Information about you, please contact us using the contact details provided under the “How to contact us” heading below.

 

4. Minors.  We do not knowingly collect any Personal Information from or about individuals under 13 years of age. Please do not submit such information to us, and as a parent or legal guardian, please do not allow your children to submit Personal Information without your permission.

 

5. Cookies, Browser Information and Related Issues.

a. Cookies: We use “cookies” (small data files placed on your computer or other device by the server when you visit the Site and/or the Apps) and similar tracking technology described below to collect and use information about you and the device you use to access the Site and/or the Apps. In some countries, including countries in the European Economic Area, this information may be considered Personal Information (or “personal data”) under applicable data protection laws. For further information about the types of cookies we use, why, and how you can control cookies, please see our Cookie Statement.

 

b. Browser Data: We collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as the originating IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring website addresses. This data may be used, among other reasons, to improve the operation and security of the Site and/or the Apps by assisting in “authenticating” who you are when you access the Site and/or the Apps, particularly if you register for access to a section of the Site with restricted access and are issued or create a username and password.

 

c. Device Data:  In addition, we may collect technical data about the device used to access the Site and/or the Apps (“Device Data”) (such as unique device ID, device type, model, name or ID: operating system version, application types and versions, plug-ins, and time zone and geolocation information). Device Data may be used as part of our security controls to uniquely identify the device and authenticate the user when accessing the Site and/or the Apps. Device Data may be shared (along with information about any fraudulent transactions using the device) with one or more third-party service providers. These providers will compare and add the Device Data and fraud data to a database of similar device and fraud information in order to identify and block access to the Site by devices associated with fraudulent or abusive activity. We will not share with service providers any information that personally identifies the user of the device.

 

d. Site and/or the Apps Usage Data. We may also collect information about how your device has interacted with the Site and/or the Apps, including the pages accessed and links clicked. Collecting this information enables us to better understand the visitors who come to the Site and/or the Apps, where they come from, and what content on the Site is of interest to them. We use this information for our internal analytics purposes and to improve the security, quality and relevance of the Site and/or the Apps to our visitors and users.

 

e. Widgets: The Site includes Social Media Features, such as the Facebook Like button, and Widgets, such as the “Share this” button, or interactive mini-programs. These Features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on the Site, and may set a cookie to enable the Feature to function properly. Social Media Features and Widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on the Site. Your interactions with these Features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

 

f. Tracking: With respect to information about an individual’s online activities over time and across different websites or online services, when a visitor uses the Site or the Apps, except as required by law: (1) parties other than the operator of the Site and created of the Apps are not permitted to collect such information, and (2) the operator of the Site and the creator of the Apps does not collect such information (except information reasonably necessary to process and document user transactions). Therefore, the Site and the Apps has no need to respond to and does not respond to Web browser “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that enable individuals to exercise choice regarding the collection of such information.

 

6. How We Protect Personal Information About You.  To protect Personal Information about you from unauthorized access and use, OnCourse Learning maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards, and requires those to whom we disclose Personal Information (including our employees and service providers) to do the same. The measures we use are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing Personal Information.

 

7. International data transfers. Personal Information about you may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you are resident. These countries may have data protection laws that are different than the laws of your country.

Specifically, the Site servers are located in the United States and third-party service providers and partners operate around the world. This means that when we collect Personal Information we may process it in any of these countries.

 

However, we have taken appropriate safeguards to require that Personal Information will remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Where relevant, these may include implementing the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses (found at https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-transfers-outside-eu/model-contracts-transfer-personal-data-third-countries_en) for transfers of Personal Information between and among our group companies, which require all group companies to protect Personal Information from the EEA in accordance with European Union data protection law. We have implemented similar appropriate safeguards with our third-party service providers and partners.

 

8. Data retention. We retain Personal Information about you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so, for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax, accounting, regulatory, or accreditation requirements.

 

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process Personal Information about you, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible, for example, because the Personal Information has been stored in backup archives, then we will securely store the Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

 

9. Your data protection rights. If you are a resident of the European Economic Area, you have the following data protection rights under European Union law:

 

a. If you wish to access, correct, update or request deletion of Personal Information about you, you can do so at any time by contacting us using the contact details provided under the “How to contact us” heading below.

 

b. You may object to processing of Personal Information about you based on our legitimate interests, or for direct marketing.

 

c. You may also ask us to restrict processing of Personal Information about you or request portability of Personal Information about you. You can exercise these rights by contacting us using the contact details provided under the “How to contact us” heading below.

 

d. You have the right to opt-out of marketing communications we send you at any time. You can exercise this right by clicking on the “unsubscribe” or “opt-out” link in the marketing e-mails we send you. To opt-out of other forms of marketing, please contact us using the contact details provided under the “How to contact us” heading below.

 

e. You have the right to withdraw any consent we have relied on at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of Personal Information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.

 

f. You have the right to complain to a data protection authority about our collection and use of Personal Information about you. For more information, please contact your local data protection authority. Contact details for data protection authorities in the European Economic Area, Switzerland and certain non-European countries (including the US and Canada) are available at http://ec.europa.eu/justice/article-29/structure/data-protection-authorities/index_en.htm.

 

We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws.

 

10. Keeping Up to Date with Our Privacy Policy. OnCourse Learning may update this Policy from time to time in response to changing legal, technical or business developments by posting a revised version on the Site, which will be effective at the time it is posted for all Personal Information collected thereafter unless a delayed effective date is expressly stated in the revision. When we update our Privacy Policy, we will take appropriate measures to inform you, consistent with the significance of the changes we make. We will obtain your consent to any material Privacy Policy changes if and where this is required by applicable data protection laws.

 

11. Scope.

a. Supplemental Privacy Policies. Some areas, features and services on the Site may be offered on the condition that you view and agree to privacy terms and disclosures specific to those areas, features and services.

c. Links to Third-Party Sites. The Site and/or the Apps may provide links to other sites operated by third parties over whom OnCourse Learning has no control and whose privacy policies may differ from ours.
