PRIVACY POLICY

 

Last Updated: February 22, 2016

This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains how Lilasophy, LLC (“Lilasophy,” “we”, “us” or “Our”) collect, use and share personally identifiable information of visitors of our web site (the “Site”) and users of our products and services (the “Services”). Please note that the primary purpose of our Site and the Services it to allow you to enroll in and take online courses on a variety of topics (“Courses”). For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, information that you provide through the Site can be in one of two categories: information relating to your use of the Site or the Services, including, without limitation, enrollment information for Courses, is referred to as “Site Information,” while information relating to taking the Courses, including, without limitation, interchanges with the Course instructors (“Instructors”), other students (“Users”), answers, essays and other items submitted to satisfy Course requirements, is referred to as “Course Information.” When this Privacy Policy uses the generic term “information” it is intended to address the general use of information, and not your specific Site Information or Course Information. By using the Site, Services, or Courses you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personally identifiable Site Information and Course Information, as applicable, in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

 

1.         Personally Identifiable Information We Collect and How We Use It.

 You can generally visit the Site without revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. We do not collect personal information from our Site visitors without the Site visitor providing us with this information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.  The Company will not initiate a request of you to disclose a social security number, tax identification number, username, password or personal identification number(s) to this Service or to any third party website or webpage or any financial institutions routing or account numbers. You should delete, discard, disregard or ignore any attempt to acquire sensitive personal information through the use of either official-looking electronic communications like email (phishing) or text messaging (smishing) or by phone call or voice mail (vishing) that in any way implicate the Company as the source of the request or threat. If you think you have received a fraudulent email, text message or other electronic communication from us, but you haven’t acted on it, please forward the information to us at admin@lilasophy.com.  You will receive an automated response from us to let you know we received the email and that we will begin our investigation into the matter.

 You can learn more about how to avoid such scams and to be on guard against fraud while using the Internet, how to secure your computer and wireless device and how to protect your valuable personal information by visiting the following online service of the U.S. Government: http://onguardonline.gov/topics/avoid-scams.

 If you request to receive company or product information, or request information about specific Services, or provide comments about Services, you will be asked to provide contact information so that we can complete your request. We use this Site Information to fulfill your request. We may also use this Site Information to send you additional information about our Services or Courses on the Site that you may be interested in.

 Some of the Services require that you become a registered user and create a user account. This will require that you provide certain personally identifiable information, that may include (but not be limited to) name, your company’s name, e-mail address, as well as telephone and address information. You allow us to use this personally identifiable Site Information to register you to use the Services, enroll in Courses, and otherwise provide you with the Services; verify your authority to enter the Site and access the Courses and Services; notify you of updates; improve the content and general administration of the Site and the Services; provide you with notices regarding the Services and other services that you have purchased or may wish to purchase in the future.

  You also consent to our providing this personally identifiable information to Instructors as part of the Course Information when you enroll in a Course. Instructors will use this Course Information to provide the Course to you. Instructors may have other users for Course Information. It is your responsibility when you enroll in a Course to confirm what uses the Instructor will make of your personally identifiable Course Information. Lilasophy does not control these uses by Instructors.

 ð  Notice to Users in California:  California Civil Code Section 1798.83 (“California’s “Shine the Light” law) permits California residents to request and obtain from us, on an annual basis and free of charge, information about the personally identifiable information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of personally identifiable information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with whom we shared such information. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to:

2.         Other Information We Collect and How We Use It.

 Lilasophy may also automatically collect and analyze Site Information about your general usage of the Site, Services and Courses. We might track your usage patterns to see what features of the Site, Services and Courses you commonly use, Site traffic volume, frequency of visits, type and time of transactions, type of browser, browser language, IP address and operating system, and statistical information about how you use the Services and Courses. We only collect, track and analyze such Site Information in an aggregate manner that does not personally identify you. This aggregate data may be used to assist us in operating the Site and the Services and may be provided to other third parties to enable them to better understand the operation of the Services, and improve their Course offerings, but such information will be in aggregate form only and it will not contain personally identifiable data.

Instructors may collect non-personally identifiable Course Information in connection with your participation in Courses. This Course Information may include, but not be limited to, your interaction with the Instructor and other Users, comments you leave on Course forums, answers or essays you submit to satisfy Course requirements, and so forth. As noted above, it is your responsibility to review the Instructor’s policy in connection with all Course Information and decide whether or not you want to provide such Course Information.

 

3.         Children.

 We recognize the privacy interests of children and we encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children’s online activities and interests. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under 13, we will delete such information. Children under the age of 13 may not register for an account or register for or purchase Courses. Individuals under the age of 18 may only use the Services with the involvement, supervision, and approval or a parent or legal guardian.

 

4.         Disclosure of Information.

 We will share your personally identifiable Site Information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy policy. These include, but are not limited to, sharing Site Information with service providers to allow them to fulfill your requests, to Instructors (in which case this will become Course Information). We do not sell your personal information to third parties. Please refer to the sections above on personally identifiable and other Course Information for how Course Information may be used.

We may also disclose your personally identifiable information: (a) if we are required to do so by law, regulation or other government authority or otherwise in cooperation with an investigation of a governmental authority, (b) to enforce these Terms of Use, or (c) to protect the safety of Users of our Site and our Services and Courses. In addition, we may transfer your personally identifiable information to a successor entity upon a merger, consolidation or other corporate reorganization.

 Vendors and Service Providers.

 We want to provide you with excellent service and make your Lilasophy experience as seamless as possible. We share information, including nonpublic Personal Information, with third parties that perform services on our behalf so we can provide and improve our services. Lilasophy shares Personal Information with companies who provide services such as information processing, extending credit, delivering products to you, assessing your interest in our Products and Services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These third parties must abide by this Privacy Policy and keep nonpublic information confidential and use it only for its intended purpose.

 

5.         Data Retention.

 We retain Site Information and the personal data we process on behalf of Users for as long as needed to provide the Services. We will retain and use this personal Site Information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements with Users, and/or the period required by laws in applicable jurisdictions. Please see the sections above for how Course Information may be used.

 

6.         Updating, Correcting and Deleting Your Information; Opt-Out.

If you believe that Lilasophy has incorrect Site Information or Course Information that was provided as part of the Services, you may use the Services to correct, amend, or delete that information. You may also contact us by e-mailing our customer support at admin@lilasophy.com. We can only alter Course Information that was initially provided to us; you need to contact the Instructor for other purposes. Alternatively, you may send a letter with your requested changes, corrections or deletions to the following address:

 By mail:

Lilasophy LLC

Attn: Privacy Policy

109 North 3rd St. Suite 205

Marshall, MN 56258

 From time to time, we may send you emails about Course or new or modified Services that we believe might interest you. If you wish to opt-out of receiving these materials, you may follow the unsubscribe procedure provided in the email.

 

7.         Security.

 The security of your personal information is important to us. Lilasophy employs procedural and technological measures to protect your personally identifiable information. These measures are reasonably designed to help protect your personally identifiable information from loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. We may use software, secure socket layer technology (SSL) encryption, password protection, firewalls, internal restrictions and other security measures to help prevent unauthorized access to your personally identifiable information. However, Lilasophy cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat these measures or use your personally identifiable information for improper purposes. Therefore, you should be aware that when you voluntarily display or distribute personally identifiable information, that information could be collected and used by others. Lilasophy is not responsible for the unauthorized use by third parties of information you post or otherwise make available publicly.

 

8.         Links to Other Websites.

 The Site, Services and in particular the Courses, may provide links to third party web sites or resources not associated with us and over which we do not have control (“External Web Sites”). Such links do not constitute an endorsement by Lilasophy of the External Web Sites, the content displayed therein, or the persons or entities associated therewith. You acknowledge that Lilasophy is only providing these links as a convenience, and cannot be responsible for the content of such External Web Sites.

 

7.         Use of Cookies and Tracking Technologies.

 (a)        Cookies.

 A cookie, also known as a web or browser cookie, is a small text file that is placed on one’s computer hard disk by a web server.  Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to the hard disk. Cookies are uniquely assigned to the user and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to that user. The Service will use both session and persistent “cookies” to help personalize and enhance the user experience. “Session cookies” are temporary and are used to verify unique session status of users while they are interacting with the Service from their computer or wireless device. Usage of a session cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on the Service. A session cookie disappears after you close your web browser. “Persistent cookies” remain on your hard drive after you close your web browser and are used to save you time and effort by telling the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize the webpages of the Service, a persistent cookie helps the Service recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This technique simplifies the process of recording personally identifying information, such as email addresses and telephone numbers, helps you log in faster and ultimately enhances your navigation through the Service and is therefore sometimes also referred to as a “functionality cookie.”

 We may also use or allow third parties to serve cookies that fall into the three categories above. For example, like many companies, we use Google Analytics to help us monitor our website traffic. We may also use third party cookies to help us with market research, revenue tracking, improving site functionality and monitoring compliance with our terms and conditions and copyright policy.

 You have the ability to accept or decline cookies.  Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can easily modify browser settings to decline cookies or to indicate when cookies are being sent to your hard drive should you prefer more direct control over cookie assignments. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Service. However, if users reject cookies on the Service, they may still use the Service.  To change the settings for cookies, get help from the provider of your internet browser.  You can learn more about browser cookies at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_cookies.

 (b)        Web Beacons and Other Technologies.

 The Service may use “web beacons” and related technologies to track your use of the Service. We may also include web beacons in email messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. When aggregated, this tracking information allows us to customize and further refine the Service and to measure its overall effectiveness.

 (c)        Log Files.

 As is true of most internet services, Our servers automatically record certain information sent by your web browser to the Service. These server logs will include information such as your ISP, IP address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, nature and number of clicks and how you interact with the Service and hyperlinks on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, mobile carrier and other such industry-standard technical information. The Service captures this information solely for the purposes of analysis. This information is intended for internal use only and will not be disclosed to third parties. Log files may assist the Company in any effort to discover the identities of unauthorized users of the Service in the event of a breach of security or to enforce compliance with the Agreement. Log files are also used to provide you with the ability to analyze and understand all activities within Your Account.

 (d)        To Learn More About Cookies.

 If you are based in the United States and would like to learn more, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.  If you are based in the European Union and would like to learn more about these types of cookies or to choose not to receive them, please visit www.youronlinechoices.eu.

 

9.         Material Changes.

Lilasophy reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will post the revised Privacy Policy on this Site located at www.lilasophy.com/privacy and will either send a notice to the e-mail address that you specified in your registration and/or post notice of the change so it is visible when users log-on for the first time prior to said changes taking effect so that you are always aware of what personal information we may collect and how we may use this information. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes. Your continued use of the Site and/or Services will be subject to the then-current Privacy Policy.

11.       Safe Harbor Compliance.

 Lilasophy does not comply with the U.S.-E.U. Safe Harbor Framework and the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework ("Safe Harbor") as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, retention, and transfer of personal information from the European Union, the European Economic Area, and Switzerland. Lilasophy does not represent that it adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. To learn more about the Safe Harbor program, please visit www.export.gov/safeharbor.

 If you are located in the European Union, or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that you will be transferring information, including personally identifiable information, to a country or jurisdiction that does not have the same privacy protection laws as your country or jurisdiction.
