Disclosure of Your Information

We will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to third parties without your explicit consent. The following describes some of the ways that your information may be disclosed in the normal scope of business to provide our services:

 

Subscribers and End-Users, Etc. In the normal operation of the Site, End-User information is disclosed to the applicable Subscriber, for example contact information used in the recording of training completions. In general, information you enter on the Site is available to the other persons – whether they are End-Users, Subscribers, staff members or others – to whom you give access to your account or to whom you give access to the information through the normal operation of the Site.

 

Forum. If you post on a public forum, your username and other information you include is displayed in your postings or comments, and is therefore available to the public. All of your activities in the public areas of the forum will be identifiable to your User ID, and other people can see your published content. Some forums are private to individual Subscribers' accounts, and postings or comments of these forums are available only to those members of the private forum.

 

Legal Requests; Emergencies. We cooperate with law enforcement inquiries and demands for information that are made under force of law. Therefore, we may provide personal information to law enforcement agencies in what we believe to be emergency situations, we may provide personal information where required by court order, legal process or lawful authority, and we may provide it to our legal counsel in connection with the foregoing.

Your Use of Other Persons’ Information

In order to facilitate the services provided by the Site, the Site allows you in certain circumstances to give other Users limited access to the personal information of other persons. For example, if you are a Subscriber, you may use the Site to give access to an End-User to view training completion data of your End-Users. By entering into our Terms of Use, you agree that, with respect to the personal information of other persons that you collect, use and disclose on the Site, you have all necessary consents and rights to collect, use and disclose that information as described in this Privacy Policy from time to time, and you agree that the indemnity you give to us in the Terms of Use applies to any non-compliance by you with the foregoing.
