Effective Date: February 12, 2018
Edfluence, Inc. (“Edfluence,” “we,” “our” or “us) operates www.edfluence.com (the “Site”), which allows you to take courses presented by individuals who have expertise in various industries and art forms, from social media stars to television personalities (“Influencers”).
- Information We Collect
“Personal Data” means data that, either alone or in combination with other information about you, allows us to identify you as an individual or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail and mailing addresses, and payment information as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data.
“Anonymous Data” means data that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Data. Anonymous Data does not (by itself or in combination with other data that, alone, would be anonymous) permit the identification of individual persons.
We collect Personal Data and Anonymous Data, as described below:
Information You Provide to Us. We may collect Personal Data from you, such as your first and last name, gender, e-mail and mailing addresses, payment information, or social media account handle and password when you create an account to log in to the Services (“Account”).
We collect device and usage data which tells us about the device you use to access the Site and how you interact with the Services as further described below. We also collect other types of information such as your operating system and version, and other requested information if you contact us regarding support for the Services.
Our Site lets you store preferences like how your content is displayed and safe search settings. We may associate these choices with your ID or browser, and you can edit these preferences at any time.
When connecting to our Services via a service provider that uniquely identifies your mobile device, we may receive this identification and use it to offer extended services and/or functionality.
When you order Services, we will collect all information necessary to complete the transaction, including your name, payment information and billing or shipping information. Some or all of this information may be shared with third parties who will help process and fulfill your purchases, as further detailed below.
If you provide us with feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply.
When you provide content (text, images, videos, photographs, messages, comments or any other kind of content that is not your e-mail address) to an Influencer through the Site, the information contained in your submission will be stored in our servers.
When you post comments or questions in a chat forum on our Site (“Forum”), the information contained in your post will be stored on our servers and other registered Users will be able to see it.
Information Collected by Our Servers. To make our Site and Services more useful to you, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) collect information from you, including your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit.
Log Files. As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Site or the Services again. Except as noted in this Policy, we do not link this automatically-collected data to your Personal Data.
Targeted Advertising. In order to serve offers and advertisements that may interest you, we may display targeted advertisements on the Services, or other digital properties or applications in conjunction with our content based on information provided to us by our users and information provided to us by third parties that they have independently collected. Our advertisers and other third parties who collect Personal Data from our Site may offer opt-outs through the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) or Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). We do not provide Personal Data to advertisers when you interact with an advertisement.
Social Media Cookies. These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on our Site or you link your Account or engage with our content on or through a social networking website such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+. The social network will record that you have done this.
Pixel Tags. We may also use pixel tags (which are also known as web beacons and clear GIFs) on our Services to track the actions of users on our Services. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device by a website, pixel tags are embedded invisibly on webpages. Pixel tags measure the success of our marketing campaigns and compile statistics about usage of the Services, so that we can manage our content more effectively. The information we collect using pixel tags is not linked to our users’ Personal Data.
