4. Third-Party Service Providers

In general, the third-party service providers we use only collect, use, store, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways, payment transaction processors, chat and email providers, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. For these providers, listed below, we recommend that you read their privacy policies and terms of service, so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

Certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. If you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located. As an example, if you are located in Europe and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation. Once you leave our website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.

4.1. Website Servers

Our site is hosted by a third party company, Thinkific Labs Inc. (“Thinkific”). They also provide us with the online course creation application that allows us to sell our products/ services to you.

They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall, which we cannot access. You may wish to read Thinkific’s Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

4.2. Usability Recordings

We use Hotjar to analyze how people use our site, so we can improve its usability. Hotjar records some user's interactions on some of our web pages, along with the user's country and timestamp. They mask all data typed into any web page forms. If you use our site while logged in to a registered account, then your profile name can appear on screen in some recordings. Hotjar stores these recordings on their servers, so you may wish to read Hotjar's Terms of Service and Privacy Policy "End Users" section.

Purchases made on this site are processed by a third party company, Stripe, Inc. (“Stripe”). They encrypt payments through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our site and its service providers. Your credit card transaction data is stored by Stripe only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. You may wish to read Stripe’s Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure data is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, our third-party providers follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

Some of the information you may enter on this site may be transmitted securely via Secure Sockets Layer SSL, 128 bit encryption services. Pages utilizing this technology will have URLs that start with HTTPS instead of HTTP.

Email and chat are not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private information to us via email or chat.
