We use collective learnings about how people use our Service and feedback provided directly to us to troubleshoot and to identify trends, usage, activity patterns and areas for integration and improvement of the Service. In some cases, we apply these learnings across our Service to improve and develop similar features or to better integrate the services you use. We also test and analyze certain new features with some users before rolling the feature out to all users.

  • To inform your education program: We use the content entered by you other users of our Service to keep programs updated about your progress and to ensure that you have met their graduation requirements.

  • To protect our legitimate business interests and legal rights: Where required by law or where we believe it is necessary to protect our legal rights, interests and the interests of others, we use information about you in connection with legal claims, compliance, regulatory, and audit functions, and disclosures in connection with the acquisition, merger or sale of a business.

Where we are using your information because we or a third party (e.g. your employer) have a legitimate interest to do so, you have the right to object to that use though, in some cases, this may mean no longer using the Service.

We will not disclose your information to third parties for their own independent marketing or business purposes without your consent.

These entities are limited in their ability to use your information for purposes other than providing services for us.
