By visiting the Website, you are accepting the practices described in this Policy.
The Academy may amend this Policy at any time without notice to you. Changes to this Policy may affect the way we use the information collected about you, including personally identifiable information provided by you. Please visit our Website to obtain current information about our Policy.
If you have an inquiry or concern about our Policy, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
The information we collect generally falls into two categories: (1) personally identifiable information (“PII”) that you voluntarily provide to us, and (2) tracking information collected as you navigate through the website (“Non-PII”).
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
PII is information that identifies you. Among other items, we may collect your name, title, employer name, and email address. We collect this information only when you choose to provide it to us. For example, we may collect and store your PII if you decide to sign up to receive emails about the regular updates to this Website. We use this information to process your request.
Non-PII is information that our technology collects, without identifying you. When you use the Website, we may collect tracking information such as your browser type, the type of operating system you use, the domain name of your internet service provider, and pages visited on the Website. We collect this information for aggregate reporting on Website activity and for identifying possible sources of Website abuse. For example, we may want to know how long the average user spends on the Website or which pages or features get the most attention.
When we collect this information, we endeavor to make any personally identifiable information non-personally identifiable by combining it with information about other individuals or by removing characteristics that make the information personally identifiable to you. The Academy reserves the right to share with third parties aggregated information about you and other visitors to our Website. We share this information in order to improve our Website and develop content and services that may be of interest to you.
The Academy may share non-PII with business partners or other third parties.
