HOW TO MANAGE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

You can manage your Personal Information through learner features on the Edly Site and requests to the Edly learner support team. If your request involves information controlled by a Member, Edly learner support will notify and coordinate with the appropriate Member to address your request. Edly will provide support to the extent required by applicable law (for example, learners in the European Union) and more broadly when possible, as a courtesy in our sole discretion. Edly will notify you in the event that Edly is unable to meet a request that is not legally required. Similarly, Members will only be obligated to comply with requests to the extent legally required, but may choose to comply with other requests in their sole discretion.

Access and correct your Personal Information

 

Much of your Personal Information is available in your Edly account. Your name, email address, and other identifiable profile information is editable through the profile settings in your Edly account except as noted below. Your account dashboard lists all current and archived courses in which you have enrolled and includes links to any Verified Certificates you may have earned. The dashboard also contains copies of your answers and other participation and performance in courses. Please contact Edly learner support to access and update this or other information. If your request involves information controlled by a Member, Edly learner support will notify the appropriate Member of your request.

Exceptions:

Restrict or object to the processing of Personal Information

If you want to manage emails and other communications to you, you may update your preferences in your Edly account dashboard, follow the steps described in links at the bottom of email messages, or contact Edly learner support. You may object to, or request that Edly or a Member stop, its use of your Personal Information for other purposes by contacting the Edly learner support team. If your request involves information controlled by a Member, Edly learner support will notify the appropriate Member of your request. Please note that if you choose to restrict Edly’s or a Member’s ability to process Personal Information, and the processing is otherwise required to provide you with various services and products offered on the Edly Site, you may not be able to establish an Edly user account or enroll for a course, and Edly or a Member may not be able to provide you with those services or products.

Delete account and Personal Information

To request deletion of your Edly account and Personal Information, you should click the button labeled “Delete my account” in your Edly account settings. Because deletion on the Edly system is a permanent action and cannot be reversed, Edly may ask you to complete a process that aims to confirm your authority to manage the Edly account affected by your request.

 

With respect to your Edly account, Edly will permanently:

 

With respect to your Personal Information, Edly will permanently delete your Edly account profile Personal Information from the Edly Site.

 

As noted above, to the extent that Edly associates the information that Edly collects directly or indirectly with an individual (for example, you), the association is based on Personal Information in your Edly account profile. By erasing the Personal Information in your Edly account profile, the remaining information about your activity on the Edly Site will no longer be associated with you, except as noted below.

 

These changes will be applied to data stores that are used for operation of the Edly Site including course administration by Members. If you enrolled in any courses on the Edly Site, the Edly learner support team will share your request with the Members that offered those courses.

 

Exceptions:

Data retention

Edly will retain your Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with services; to maintain a record of your transactions for financial reporting, audit, and compliance purposes; and to comply with Edly’s legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce its agreements, and as otherwise permitted by applicable law. If you enroll in a Member’s course, such Member will also retain your Personal Information for as long as needed to provide you with services; to maintain a record of your transactions for financial reporting, audit, and compliance purposes; and to comply with its legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce its agreements, and as otherwise permitted by applicable law. 

 

Upon your request that Edly deactivate your account and delete your information, Edly will follow the process described above, including without limitation archiving your course data (in a manner and to the extent permitted under applicable law) to serve its mission to enable scientific research on cognitive science and education. These archives will be used to produce encrypted research data packages for Members, and each such Member may also keep and use course data for scientific research.

STORAGE & SECURITY

Edly stores information, including Personal Information, on its own servers and also on servers of companies that Edly hires to provide services. Each Member also stores information, including Personal Information, on its own servers and/or on servers of companies that the Member hires to provide services. In each case, information may be stored in the United States and in other countries where Edly or a Member operates, and in countries where Edly and each Member’s respective service providers operate. If you are in the European Union, Switzerland, or other regions with laws governing data collection and use, you acknowledge that Edly and each Member may transfer, process and store your personal information in the United States and other countries, the privacy laws of which may be considered less strict than those of your region.

 

Edly controls its own copy of information collected through the Edly Site and has an information security program designed to protect information in its possession or control. This is done through a variety of privacy and security policies, processes, and procedures. Edly uses administrative, physical, and technical safeguards that reasonably and appropriately protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the information that it collects, receives, stores, or transmits. Nonetheless, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure; and therefore, Edly cannot guarantee its absolute security. While Edly works hard to ensure the integrity and security of its network and systems, Edly cannot guarantee that its security measures will prevent “hackers” or other unauthorized persons from illegally accessing or obtaining information.

If Edly learns of a security breach involving its copy of your Personal Information, Edly may attempt to notify you electronically so that you may take appropriate protective steps. By using the Edly Site or providing Personal Information to Edly, you agree that Edly can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Edly Site. If a security systems breach occurs, Edly may post a notice on the Edly homepage (www.edly.io) or elsewhere on the Edly Site and may send an email to you at the email address associated with your Edly account. Depending on where you are located, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach, involving your Personal Information, in writing.

 

If a Member learns of a security breach involving that Member’s copy of your Personal Information, the Member may attempt to notify you electronically so that you may take appropriate protective steps. By enrolling in a Member’s course on the Edly Site or providing Personal Information to the Member, you agree that the Member can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your course enrollment and participation. If a security systems breach occurs, the affected Member may post a notice on the Edly site and/or send an email to you at the email address associated with your enrollment in the Member’s course on the Edly Site. Depending on where you are located, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach, involving your Personal Information, in writing.
