Information collected enables us to give you convenient access to our service offerings and products, and may help us tailor your educational experience.
What Information do we collect and how do we use it?
1. Information you provide:
We collect information to provide more effective services. We ask for your name, email address, and other personal information when you register to use certain features of our website. We also may ask for this information at other times, such as when you enter contests or other promotions sponsored by us and/or our partners. If you use a feature that requires payment of a fee, we collect your credit card data or payment account information.
If you choose to use our invitation service to tell a friend about our site, we ask you for information to send the invitation (such as your friend’s email address). We automatically send your friend a one-time email or instant message inviting him/her to visit our site. We store this information to: send this one-time invitation, register a referral if your invitation is accepted, and track the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us at our office or e-mail or telephone to request that we remove this information from our database.
When you use one of our paid products, we track the web pages, and information that has been accessed by you, and store it on our servers. This enables us to track items that you have completed, and those that you need to see.
We send cookies (small files containing a string of characters) to your computer, thereby uniquely identifying your browser. Cookies are used to track your preferences, help you login faster, and aggregated to determine user trends. This data is used to improve our offerings, such as providing more content in areas of greater interest to a majority of users.

We may provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to our specified purposes.
How Long Do We Retain User Data?
Currently, we plan to retain user data while an account is active and for at least ten years afterward. We may alter this practice according to legal and business requirements. For example, we may lengthen the retention period for some data if needed to comply with law or voluntary codes of conduct. Unless otherwise prohibited, we may shorten the retention period for some types of data if needed to free up storage space.
Management of User Information:
You can access and manage your account information. You can update your usage by accessing further paid services or products, or change details such as email address, and personal information.
