1. Data we collect about you

We collect certain data from you directly, like information you enter yourself. We collect data automatically, such as data about your consumption of content. We also receive data from third-party platforms, such as from our payment processors or if you connect a third-party platform when you register for an account.

Below, we detail the information we collect.


Account Information

To use our platform, you’ll need to register for an account. To do so, you’ll need to provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, email address, and password.

You can also choose to provide profile information like a photo, headline, biography, or other data. Your profile data will be publicly viewable by others; for example, when you ask a question, other students and instructors can see your photo and user name.


Shared content

Parts of the services let you interact with other users or share content publicly, for example by posting reviews about content, asking or answering questions, or sending messages to instructors. Such shared content may be publicly viewable by others, depending on where it is posted.

Learning data

When you enroll in a course, we will collect personal information relating to your participation in the course, such as courses you have enrolled in, quiz results, lecture progress, and certifications.

Payment Data

To purchase a course, or other service through our Platform, you’ll need to provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, address, and information about the service you are purchasing. You may also need to provide certain payment-related information directly to our third party payment processors.

Third Party Integrations

You may allow our Platform to interact with third party services (such as when you register for an account with us by using Gmail).

Third-party services are operated, controlled, and maintained by third parties that are not operated, controlled, or maintained by us. We recommend that you read the terms of use and privacy policies of those third party services to understand how they collect, use, and share your personal information with us or other third parties.


We may invite you to complete a survey, either through the Services or a third-party platform. If you participate, we will collect and store the data you provide as part of participating, such as your name, email address, and responses to the survey. That data is subject to this Privacy Policy unless otherwise stated. Where we use a third-party platform to administer a survey, the third party’s privacy policy will apply.


Communications and Support

If you contact us for support or to report a problem or concern (regardless of whether you have created an account), we collect and store your contact information, messages, and other data about you like your name, email address, messages, user ID, refund transaction IDs, and any other data you provide or that we collect through automated means. We use this data to respond to you and research your question or concern, in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
