What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Participants who take our courses will provide name, email address and other personal details including course progress and responses to quizzes. This site stores all such information in order to support participant progress and to serve ongoing course content to the participant. The site may also store the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection and debugging any issues that might arise.
Site users who provide their email address can anticipate that the site will retain their email address for routine contact purposes.
When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Contact forms and any other forms you use at this site may collect and store the information you provide.
If a site visitor leaves a comment on our site, they may opt-in to saving their name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for convenience when leaving another comment later. Such cookies typically expire after an extended period of not returning to this website.
When you log in, we may set up several cookies to save your login information and your various choices, actions, and progress.
Additional cookie policies are provided for:
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Payments and transactions
We use trusted third-party payment processors to handle secure online payment transactions. Your personal data provided as part of a transaction may be governed by those processors’ policies. For example:
Children’s Privacy Protection

Who we share your data with
This website does not knowingly share, rent, or sell any of your personally identifying information.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users who register on our website and participate in our various services, we may store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see and edit their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
To request a copy of any of your information or to request it be deleted, you may send your request via the website’s contact form. Be advised that deleting your information may affect the site’s ability to help measure your progress, issue certificates and commendations, and to present content based on your previous uses of the site.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Certificates and progress awards might be available to third parties such as employers and relevant professionals in ways we cannot enumerate completely.
