Performance of a Contract

By using the Services, you have contracted with us through the Terms of Service, and we will process certain Personal Data to perform under that contract, including first and last name, email address, password, and, if you are a Teacher, the content of your classes. When we process Personal Data due to contractual necessity, failure to provide such Personal Data will result in your inability to use some or all portions of the Services that require such data.

Protection of Your Information

Skillbooster takes technical and organizational security measures that are designed to safeguard Personal Data. However, no online activity is ever fully secure or error-free. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot guarantee that your Personal Data is absolutely secure. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any information to Skillbooster.

Please recognize that protecting your Personal Data is also your responsibility. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your information when you are on the Internet, or when you communicate with us and with others through the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of your account might have been compromised), or if you suspect someone else is using your account, please let us know immediately by contacting us as indicated in the Contact Us section below.

Transfer to Other Countries

Because of the global nature of our business, Skillbooster shares personal data internationally with its subsidiaries, subcontractors, and partners when carrying out the activities described in this Policy. They may process your data in countries whose data protection laws are not considered to be as strong as EU laws or the laws which apply where you live. For example, they may not give you the same rights over your data.

Whenever we transfer personal data internationally, we use tools and transfer agreements to:

Regardless of where you use our Services, the information collected as part of that use will be transferred to and maintained on servers located in the United States. By using our Services, you consent to this collection, transfer, storage, and processing of information to and in the United States.

Use of Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

We and our service providers use cookies, web beacons, pixels, session replay/screen capture, and similar technologies to collect information and personalize your experience with our Services.

We use these technologies in order to offer you a more tailored experience in the future, by understanding and remembering your particular browsing preferences. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a site that enable us to: (i) recognize your computer; (ii) store your preferences and settings; (iii) understand the web pages of the Services you have visited; (iv) enhance your user experience by delivering and measuring the effectiveness of content and advertising tailored to your interests; (v) perform searches and analytics; and (vi) assist with security and administrative functions.

As we adopt additional technologies, we may also gather information through other methods. Please note that you can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated or to block cookies altogether. For more information, please consult the “Help” section of your browser (e.g., Internet Explorer; Google Chrome; Mozilla Firefox; or Apple Safari). Please note that by blocking, disabling, or managing any or all cookies, you may not have access to certain features or offerings of the Services.

Children’s Information

The Services are not directed to children whose age:

We do not knowingly collect or use personal data from children who meet those criteria. If you’re under the age of 13 years, please do not use the Services, and do not provide any personal data to us. We may offer a specific service dedicated to children and your use of that service will be subject to the privacy policy governing that service.

We do not knowingly process data of EU residents under the age of 16 without parental consent. If we become aware that we have collected data from an EU resident under the age of 16 without parental consent, we will take reasonable steps to delete it as soon as possible. If you live in the EU and are under the age of 16 years, please do not use the Services, and do not provide any personal data to us.

We also comply with other age restrictions and requirements in accordance with applicable local laws.

If we learn that we’ve collected the personal data of a child under the age of 13 or 16, as applicable, we’ll take reasonable steps to delete the personal data. This may require us to delete the Skillbooster account for that child.

Your Rights

You have certain rights regarding the collection and processing of Personal Data. You may exercise these rights, to the extent they apply to you, by contacting us at the information provided at the end of this Privacy Policy, or by following instructions provided in this Privacy Policy or in communications sent to you.

Your rights vary depending on the laws that apply to you, but may include:

We may reject requests that are unreasonable or not required by law, including those that would be extremely impractical, could require disproportionate technical effort, or could expose us to operational risks such as free trial fraud. We may retain information as required or permitted by applicable laws and regulations, including to honor your choices, for our billing or records purposes, and to fulfill the purposes described in this Privacy Statement. We take reasonable measures to destroy or de-identify personal information in a secure manner when it is no longer required.

We currently do not collect household data. If all the members of a household make a request under this Policy, we will respond as if the requests are individual requests.

Please note, if you do not have a Skillbooster account we will not have enough information about you to verify your requests under this Policy, as we do not keep sufficient information necessary to reidentify and link you to a prior visit to Skillbooster where data may have been collected. As such, we will be unable to verify and honor your requests. You may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information twice per 12-month period.

Accessing, Modifying, and Correcting Collected Personal Data

We strive to maintain the accuracy of any Personal Data collected from you, and will try to respond promptly to update our records when you tell us the information in our records is not correct. If you believe that any Personal Data we are holding about you is incorrect or incomplete, you can request that we correct or supplement such data. You can also correct some of this information directly by making changes to your Profile. You can request that we correct or supplement such data by emailing help@skillbooster.com.

Depending on the laws that apply to you, you may obtain from us certain Personal Data in our records. If you wish to access, review, or make any changes to Personal Data you have provided to us through the Services, please email us at help@skillbooster.com from the email address that you believe is associated with your Skillbooster account.

Data Erasure

In some jurisdictions, you can request that your personal information be deleted. Please note that if you request deletion of your personal information, or if your account is suspended, terminated, or voluntarily closed:

Requests Made Through Agents

You may designate, in writing or through a power of attorney, an authorized agent to make requests on your behalf to exercise your rights. Before accepting such a request from an agent, we will require the agent to provide proof you have authorized it to act on your behalf, and we may need you to verify your identity directly with us.

Your Nevada Privacy Rights

Nevada law permits our users who are Nevada consumers to request that their personal data not be sold (as defined under applicable Nevada law), even if their personal data is not currently being sold. Requests may be sent to help@skillbooster.com and are free of charge. Please include “Opt-Out Request Under Nevada Law” in the subject line and body of your message.

Your European Union and UK Privacy Rights

In addition to the above-listed rights, European Union and UK privacy law provides individuals with enhanced rights in respect of their Personal Data. These rights may include, depending on the circumstances surrounding the processing of Personal Data:

To exercise any of these rights, please submit a request through our  email us at help@skillbooster.com from the email address that you believe is associated with your Skillbooster account. In the request, please specify which right you are seeking to exercise and the scope of the request.

You have choices about certain information we collect about you, how we communicate with you, and how we process certain Personal Data. When you are asked to provide information, you may decline to do so; but if you choose not to provide information that is necessary to provide some of our Services, you may not be able to use those Services. In addition, it is possible to change your browser settings to block the automatic collection of certain information.
