Information We May Collect About You

We may collect the following information about you that makes you identifiable in order for us to provide a service or respond to your inquiry. This may include your name, email address, telephone number and your country of residence.

Sometimes we aggregate data such as statistical metrics or demographic information stemming from your personal data. It should be noted that statistical and demographic data is not personal data when it does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. Only when statistical data is combined with personal data will this Privacy Notice apply.

In some instances, such as to inquire about one of our training offerings, we may receive sensitive data about you, which may be defined differently in various countries. Using Article 9 of the GDPR as a baseline, this data, if provided, may be associated with your religious or philosophical beliefs, or could include information about your health. If you provide us this information, you do so by choice and under no compulsion whatsoever. We commit to safeguard your data and provide it adequate protections, and will only use it according to the purposes set forth in this Privacy Notice and according to legal limitations.

We will make every effort to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising.

If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
