INFORMATION THAT DASKALI COLLECTS FROM YOU (INCLUDING PERSONAL INFORMATION)

Daskali directly collects information when you:

sign up for an Daskali user account and create an Daskali user profile; enroll and participate in online courses;
purchase a product or service (for example, Verified Certificates); send email messages to Daskali (including messages to learner support); participate in user surveys; and participate in public forums, webinars, and other interactive experiences on the Daskali Site.
Daskali also indirectly collects usage information about your visit to the Daskali Site, as explained in the section below titled Cookies and Tracking Technologies.

Daskali does not itself collect or store financial account numbers or identification issued by a governmental entity, employer, or other authority. Instead, if you choose to make a purchase on the Daskali Site, for example a Verified Certificate, you will be directed to Daskali’s third-party payment processor and Daskali’s third-party ID verification service provider. If you do not wish to submit the required authentication or payment information, then you will not be able to obtain a certificate via the Daskali Site.

Daskali requires your Personal Information limited circumstances when you:

sign up for an Daskali user account (name, username, email address);
purchase a Verified Certificate (so that Daskali’s third-party vendor can authenticate your identity) or other product or service (so that Daskali’s third-party vendor can process payment);
participate in remote proctoring or other course facilitation processes (so that Daskali’s third-party vendor can monitor and assess the integrity of your course activity); or earn a Verified Certificate (the certificate will have your name on it).
To the extent that Daskali associates the information that Daskali collects directly or indirectly with an individual (for example, you), the association is based on Personal Information in your account profile.

You may voluntarily choose to share additional Personal Information on the Daskali Site, for example:

in your Daskali account profile (and you may display a limited or full profile to other Daskali Site users);
in applying for financial assistance; or when participating in a course, forum, webinar, or other interactive experience on the Daskali Site (noting that in some cases, this information is shared with a third party that provides tools or other assistance for the Daskali Site or a course).
Daskali encourages you to use discretion before voluntarily sharing additional Personal Information on the Daskali Site. (If you later choose to delete your Daskali account, deletion of your Personal Information will be subject to the process and limits outlined below.)

Members do not receive your Personal Information unless and until you enroll in a course. If you enroll in a course, the Member that offers the course will receive Personal Information from your Daskali account profile plus the information that Daskali collects about your activity and performance in the course in which you enrolled.

Cookies And Tracking Technologies on the Daskali Site

Like many companies, Daskali uses Cookies and other common Tracking Technologies on the Daskali Site and in email communications to help Dascali better understand your use and needs of the Daskali Site, current and future Daskali-related products and services, and how Daskali and Members can improve. For example: based on your cookie settings, Daskali tracks information indicating, among other things, which pages of the Daskali Site were visited, the order in which they were visited, when they were visited, and which hyperlinks and other user interface controls were used;

Daskali may log the IP address, operating system, and browser software (including mobile use and device type when you use Daskali native mobile apps) you used when accessing the Daskali Site, and Daskali may be able to determine from an IP address your Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of your point of connectivity; and
Daskali may track and collect information from emails that Daskali sends to you, for example whether you opened the email or clicked on any links from the email.
Daskali also partners with third parties to help us track and understand your activity on the Daskali Site, how you interact with Daskali’s social media, and how you find or may be referred to the Daskali Site. Individual Members may separately use Tracking Technologies within their courses and email communications to understand your activity within a course and how you find or may be referred to a course on the Daskali Site.

Daskali and Members use Cookies and other Tracking Technologies for the following purposes:

when necessary for system administration, security, and integrity to ensure the Daskali Site works properly for you. Without these technologies, the Daskali Site may not function correctly;
to enable analytics, performance and functionality, to help Daskali and Members gather information about how visitors use the Daskali Site and monitor Daskali Site performance, and to enhance your experience by recognizing and remembering whether you have visited the Daskali Site before and may have any personal preferences; and
to support marketing by enabling Daskali and Members to deliver content relevant to your interests on the Daskali Site and third-party sites based on how you interact with Daskali or Member advertisements or content. Daskali and Members use “first-party” cookies, which means cookies served by Daskali or an individual Member, and also “third-party” cookies, which means cookies served by third parties that help Daskali and Members track this information.
You have some options for managing Cookies and other Tracking Technologies. These include:

Modifying your browser settings: You should be able to control how and whether your web browser accepts Cookies by adjusting its privacy and security settings. The “help” feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new Cookies, how to receive notification of new Cookies, and how to disable existing Cookies. If you reject Daskali’s Cookies, many functions and conveniences of the Daskali Site may not work properly.
Opting-out of certain third-party tracking and advertising: Some of the third parties used by Daskali or a Member for Cookies and Tracking Technologies offer the ability to opt-out from their tracking by following processes described on their websites. A list of some such third parties is maintained and available at the Daskali learner Help Center and includes, for some, links to applicable opt-out processes. Neither Daskali nor any Member is responsible for the effectiveness of any third-party opt-out options.

HOW YOUR INFORMATION IS SHARED

Daskali and Members share information, including Personal Information, with third parties for the following purposes:

With service providers, contractors, and other third parties that help carry out the uses described above – Daskali requires third parties to: (1) abide by this Privacy Policy and applicable law; (2) handle Personal Information in a confidential manner and maintain adequate security; and (3) use Personal Information only as needed to fulfill the relevant purpose(s). In some cases, the Daskali Site and individual courses are integrated with third-party services or contain links to websites published by third parties, including other content providers as well as service providers. These third parties are responsible for their own privacy practices, so you should pay attention anytime you are redirected to a third-party website and be sure to review its privacy policy.
With other learners in courses that you take and with other visitors to the Daskali Site, to create an interactive learning environment, support class participation, and share course information – This includes sharing comments, coursework, or other information or content that you submit to a portion of the Dascali Site designed for viewing by other class members or for public communication. This also includes providing opportunities for you to communicate with other users who may have similar interests or educational goals, for instance, recommending specific study partners or connecting potential student mentees and mentors. In such cases, Daskali and each Member that offers a course in which you enrolled may use all information collected about you to determine who might be interested in communicating with you, but will only provide others your username (for clarity, no disclosure of your real name or email address).
With employers, government programs, institutions, or other enterprises that sponsor your enrollment in a course for training or other educational purposes – If an entity pays for or otherwise sponsors your Verified Certificate or course participation, Daskali will share information with the entity as needed to confirm your enrollment, participation, progress, and completion status in that course.
With affiliates of Daskali or a Member, or with successors in the event of a merger, acquisition, or reorganization, for their use consistent with this Privacy Policy.
Daskali or a Member may also seek your consent for additional disclosures of information, including Personal Information, and will share it only as described to you. In addition, Daskali or a Member may share with the public and with third parties, including but not limited to researchers and business partners, information and Personal Information that is de-identified or aggregated in a manner that does not personally identify you.

HOW TO MANAGE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

You can manage your Personal Information through learner features on the Daskali Site and requests to the Daskali learner support team. If your request involves information controlled by a Member, Daskali learner support will notify and coordinate with the appropriate Member to address your request. Daskali 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. Daskali will notify you in the event that Daskali 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 Daskali account. Your name, email address, and other identifiable profile information is editable through the profile settings in your Daskali 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 Daskali learner support to access and update this or other information. If your request involves information controlled by a Member, Daskali learner support will notify the appropriate Member of your request.

Exceptions:

Usernames cannot ever be changed. This is an Daskali system restriction. Because usernames identify you in courses and elsewhere on the Daskali Site, Daskali encourages you to use discretion in choosing your username. If you want to protect your identity, do not use your real name or a name identifiable to you as your username.
Daskali does not track or index every time or every place on the Daskali Site when or where a learner may volunteer Personal Information, so neither Daskali nor Members will be able to help you locate or manage all such instances. Daskali encourages you to use discretion before volunteering Personal Information on the Daskali Site.
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 Daskali account dashboard, follow the steps described in links at the bottom of email messages, or contact Daskali learner support. You may object to, or request that Daskali or a Member stop, its use of your Personal Information for other purposes by contacting the Daskali learner support team. If your request involves information controlled by a Member, Daskali learner support will notify the appropriate Member of your request. Please note that if you choose to restrict Daskali’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 Daskali Site, you may not be able to establish an Daskali user account or enroll for a course, and Daskali 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 Daskali account and Personal Information, you should click the button labeled “Delete my account” in your Daskali account settings. Because deletion on the Daskali system is a permanent action and cannot be reversed, Daskali may ask you to complete a process that aims to confirm your authority to manage the Daskali account affected by your request.

With respect to your Daskali account, Daskali will permanently:

deactivate your Daskali account, remove the active profile, retire your username, and remove you from Daskali email lists.
With respect to your Personal Information, Daskali will permanently delete your Daskali account profile Personal Information from the Daskali Site.

As noted above, to the extent that Daskali associates the information that Daskali collects directly or indirectly with an individual (for example, you), the association is based on Personal Information in your Daskali account profile. By erasing the Personal Information in your Daskali account profile, the remaining information about your activity on the Daskali 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 Daskali Site including course administration by Members. If you enrolled in any courses on the Daskali Site, the Daskali learner support team will share your request with the Members that offered those courses.

Exceptions:

Deletion will not apply to historical activity logs or archives unless and until these logs and data naturally “age-off” the Daskali system.
Daskali does not track or index every time or every place on the Daskali Site when or where a learner may volunteer Personal Information, so neither Daskali nor Members will be able to help you locate or manage all such instances. Daskali encourages you to use discretion before voluntarily sharing your Personal Information on the Daskali Site.
Daskali will archive 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 are used to produce encrypted research data packages for Members, and Personal Information may not be deleted from research data packages retained by Members.
Daskali and each applicable Member cannot always delete records of past interactions and transactions. For example, records relating to previous purchases on the Daskali Site must be retained for financial reporting, audit, and compliance reasons.
Daskali and each Member will retain and use Personal Information as necessary to comply with its legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce its agreements, and as otherwise permitted by applicable law.
Data retention
Daskali 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 Daskali’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 Daskali deactivate your account and delete your information, Daskali 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

Daskali stores information, including Personal Information, on its own servers and also on servers of companies that Daskali 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 North Macedonia and in other countries where Daskali or a Member operates, and in countries where Daskali 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 Daskali and each Member may transfer, process and store your personal information in the North Macedonia and other countries, the privacy laws of which may be considered less strict than those of your region.

Daskali controls its own copy of information collected through the Daskali 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. Daskali 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, Daskali cannot guarantee its absolute security. While Daskali works hard to ensure the integrity and security of its network and systems, Daskali cannot guarantee that its security measures will prevent “hackers” or other unauthorized persons from illegally accessing or obtaining information.

If Daskali learns of a security breach involving its copy of your Personal Information, Daskali may attempt to notify you electronically so that you may take appropriate protective steps. By using the Daskali Site or providing Personal Information to Daskali, you agree that Daskali can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Daskali Site. If a security systems breach occurs, Daskali may post a notice on the Daskali homepage (www.daskali.com) or elsewhere on the Daskali Site and may send an email to you at the email address associated with your Daskali 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 Daskali 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 Daskali site and/or send an email to you at the email address associated with your enrollment in the Member’s course on the Daskali 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.
