We obtain information about you through the means discussed below when you access our Platform. Please note that we need certain types of information so that you can access our Platform. If you do not provide us with such information, or ask us to delete it, you may no longer be able to access our Platform.
We collect a variety of information that you provide directly. For example, we collect information from you through:
Information about you
While parts of the Platform may not require you to provide any information that can directly identify you by name (such as if you choose to browse the Platform without logging in), the specific types of information we collect will depend upon the services you use, how you use them and the information you choose to provide. The types of data we collect directly from you includes:
Information about others
If you request that your purchase be provided to someone other than yourself (such as a gift recipient), we use the information you provide about the other person to fulfill the order.
If you access the Platform through a third-party connection or log-in (e.g., through a social network like Facebook, Amazon or Twitter), you may allow us to have access to and store certain information from your social network profile. This can include your name, gender, profile picture, your "likes" and check-ins, and your list of friends, depending on your settings on such services. If you do not wish to have this information shared, do not use a social networking connection to access the Platform.
We may receive additional information such as demographic and statistical information from third parties, such as business partners, marketers, researchers, analysts, and other parties that we may attribute to you based on your assignment to certain statistical groups. We use this information to supplement the information that we collect directly from you in order to derive your possible interests and to provide more relevant experiences and classes for you and improve our products, analytics, and advertising.
When you use our Platform, we collect certain information as described in this Section. As discussed further below, we and our service providers (which are third party companies that work on our behalf) may use a variety of technologies, including cookies and similar tools, to assist in collecting this information.
When you use our Platform through a mobile device, via any of our websites, sites, software or mobile applications, we and our service providers may automatically collect general location information (e.g., IP address, city, state and/or postal code associated with an IP address) from your computer or mobile device and analyze information such as your browser types, browser language, operating system, software and hardware attributes (including device identifiers) referring and exit pages and URLs, the number of clicks, pages viewed, the order of those pages, time spent in each section and where are you clicking, the date and time you used the Platform, error logs, and other similar information. We also automatically receive and collect certain information about the mobile phone, tablet, or computer used to access the Platform, including Internet service provider, domain name, usage data, mobile carrier and other similar information, whether and when you update the Platform, and how you use the Platform.
If you have opted-in to share your precise location with us, you can turn off the collection of precise location information through your device settings. We may still be able to infer your approximate location through other information we collect, such as IP address. You agree that ClassForThat may store and use that information for security purposes (for example, for user verification and to ensure that ClassForThat’s APIs are being used appropriately). You also acknowledge and agree that use of the Platform through a mobile device may cause data to be displayed on and through your mobile device which may be viewed by your mobile carrier and/or other access provider(s).
Cookies and data collection tools
We use tools like cookies, web beacons, analytics services, and advertising providers to gather information about you.
We and service providers acting on our behalf (like Google Analytics and third-party advertisers) use server log files and automated data collection tools like cookies, tags, scripts, customized links, device or browser fingerprints, and web beacons (together, "Data Collection Tools") when you access and use the Platform. These Data Collection Tools automatically track and collect certain system data and usage data when you use the Platform. In some cases, we tie data gathered through those Data Collection Tools to other data that we collect.
We also use web beacons, small objects that allow us to measure the actions of visitors and users using our Platform, for things like identifying whether a page was visited, identifying whether an email was opened, and advertising more efficiently by excluding current users from certain promotional messages or identifying the source of a new mobile app download.
We use the following types of cookies:
Some of the third-party partners who provide certain features on our site may also use local storage objects (also known as flash cookies or LSOs) to collect and store data.
We may also use additional technologies such as pixel tags, web beacons, tracers, tracking scripts, clear GIFs and other technologies, and may permit our third-party service providers to use these technologies. We use these technologies for purposes such as measuring the effectiveness of our advertisements or other communications, determining viewing and response rates, and determining which offers to present to you on our own or on third party sites.
We use third-party browser and mobile analytics services like Google Analytics and others on the Platform. These services use data collection tools to help us analyze your use of the Platform, including information like the third-party website you arrive from, how often you visit, events within the Platform, usage and performance data, and from where the application was downloaded. We use this data to improve the Platform, better understand how the Platform performs on different devices, and provide information that may be of interest to you. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any personally identifiable information you submit within the Platform.
We use all features of Google Analytics for display advertisers. That includes obtaining specific user cookie data, such as the source, medium and keyword used to visit our Platform. Google analytics does not store any user specific data and we will not use user specific data in any way related to Google Analytics, Google Adwords, and Remarketing.
Third-party vendors use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics Cookie) and other third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize and serve ads based on user’s past visits to our Platform.
Users can choose to opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertisers and opt-out of customized Google Display Network ads by visiting the Ads Preferences Manager.
We use third-party advertising services like Double click, Facebook, Google’s ad services, and other ad networks and ad servers to deliver advertising about our Platform on other websites and applications you use. The ads may be based on things we know about you, like your usage data and system data and things that these ad service providers know about you based on their tracking data. The ads can be based on your recent activity or activity over time and across other sites and services and may be tailored to your interests.
Depending on the types of advertising services we use, they may place cookies or other tracking technologies on your computer, phone, or other device to collect data about your use of our Platform and may access those tracking technologies in order to serve these tailored advertisements to you. To help deliver tailored advertising, we may provide these service providers with a hashed, anonymized version of your email address (in a non-human-readable form) and content that you share publicly on the Platform.
When using mobile applications, you may also receive tailored in-app advertisements. Apple iOS and Android OS each provide their own instructions on how to control in-app tailored advertising. For other devices and operating systems, you should review your privacy settings.
We use the personal information you submit to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Platform and for various purposes depending on the types of information we have collected from and about you and the specific services you use, in order to:
We do not share your personal information with third parties for their marketing purposes without your consent. We may share non-personal information, such as aggregate user statistics, de-identified information, demographic information, and usage information with third parties, including advertisers, content providers, promotional partners, sponsors and analytics providers; and third parties may collect non-personal information when you use the Platform. Demographic information may include information related to your gender, age, education and other. We may create de-identified information by removing all information that can be used to directly identify or contact you as a specific individual, such as your name and email address. We may also share your personal information with third parties with your consent, as disclosed at the time you provide us with such information.
We may use de-identified information for any purpose, including without limitation for research and marketing purposes and statistical analyses of Platform usage.
When you request that we share your information
We will share your personal information with third parties to provide services to us or you in connection with the Platform, but subject to confidentiality obligations, which limit their use and disclosure of such information. For example, we may provide your personal information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities, such as shipping anything to you, sending our emails, or offering customer service. If you purchase any products, classes or services, our billing partner will receive billing and financial information (e.g., credit card numbers) necessary to process your charges, including your postal and e-mail addresses, depending on your payment method.
Administrative, legal reasons & academic integrity investigations
Sweepstakes, contests and promotions
We may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions ("Promotion") that may require registration. By participating in a Promotion, you are agreeing to governing terms, conditions or official rules, which may contain specific requirements of you, including allowing the sponsor(s) of the Promotion to use your name, voice, likeness or other indicia of persona in advertising or marketing associated with the Promotion. If you choose to enter a Promotion, personal information, such as your name, email address and mailing address(es) may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with the administration of such Promotion, including, without limitation, in connection with winner selection, prize fulfillment, and as required by law or permitted by the Promotion's official rules, such as on a winners list.
Voluntary customer surveys
We may periodically conduct both business and individual customer surveys. We encourage our users to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types of services and classes we offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential (except where required by law), even if a third party conducts the survey. Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary.
We take the information we receive from our users responding to our surveys and aggregate it with the responses from other users to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our services and classes offered to you, and to develop new services and products. This aggregated, non-personally-identifying information may be shared with third parties.
If you apply for a job through the Platform, ClassForThat email or via its service provider, we or the service provider may ask you to provide self-identifying information (such as veteran status, gender, and ethnicity) in conjunction with laws and regulations enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC") and other federal, state and local regulatory agencies. Providing such self-identifying information is voluntary, but if you do provide such information, ClassForThat or its service provider may submit that information to the appropriate government or regulatory agencies to fulfill reporting requirements and use that information to defend against employment related complaints.
In the event that personal information is compromised as a result of a breach of security and ClassForThat becomes aware, ClassForThat will promptly notify those persons whose personal information has been compromised as it may see fit or as required by applicable law. You may, of course, decline to submit personal information through our Platform, in which case we may not be able to provide certain services to you. You may update or correct your account information at any time by logging in to your account.
We reserve the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to you, provided that you may opt-out of certain means and types of notifications.
