We collect the information that you give us when you fill in registration forms or take a survey we send you. We can use this information to register you or address your questions / complaints or give you information.
We also collect information you upload on our website or from your registering organization. We use information about you to improve our program or website or do research.
Your experience is useful so we will ask you questions about your experience during the program or afterwards. For instance, we may ask you what has happened since completing the programme, for example have you started a new job or gone into further education. We do this because we want to know if our program is of benefit to you or if we need to change anything.
You don't have to provide us with any information, or answer any of our questions if you don't want to. If you don't do so, we may however not be able to provide you with the Skills to Succeed Academy.
We use a program to keep track of your IP address, so that we can analyse data of the people visiting our website. When someone visits our website, a little program is put on your computer. This is called a cookie. We use several cookies, most of them will not identify you or your behaviour. One cookie we use, remembers your personal settings or likings for our website. For example you may increase the font when reading or makes it possible for you to comment on a blog. Do not worry, our cookies cannot track what you do on other sites. They are only there to help us understand our visitors and their behaviour. They don't gather any other information about you.
The Skills to Succeed website may have links to other websites, we do not make those websites, so what happens there is out of our control and we cannot be blamed if something goes wrong there. We advise you to read their privacy policies as well.
In some countries we have agreed with specific non-profits, schools or government agencies that we will share information with them about the use of the Academy by their own members. Depending on the non-profit, school or government agency that you have signed up to the Academy through, we may share information with that organization about your progress in the Academy. This sharing is to allow the organization to oversee this progress and prepare statistics. How the Academy Partner will use this information is set out in its own terms and privacy statements.
In cases where this agreement is in place, we may also process your information to manage queries from the non-profit, school or government agency that you have signed up to the Academy through.
Your personal information will be stored on secured servers which may not be located in your own country. But it will remain secure at all times.
You can exercise certain rights in relation to your personal information, including the right to reach out to us and ask what information we have on you by emailing us at [email protected].
Parental Consent: If you believe your child is participating in our program and provided personal information and you or another parent/guardian have NOT consented to it, please feel free to contact us at [email protected].
