This policy includes information about activities and functions of the LODS website and product-specific details, which includes additional information that is applicable to a specific product or service. Please read this Policy carefully.
A reference in this policy to “we,” “us,” or “our” means Learn on Demand Systems. When we refer to “you,” “your,” or “User,” we are referencing the individual user of our website or the “End User” of a product or service. References in this policy to “Clients” or “Customers,” means an entity or organization that contracts with us to provide a product or service to an “End User.”
- Our Collection of Personal Information
We collect information as part of operating our Websites and providing services to you. Depending upon the LODS service you want to access or the website activity that you choose to engage in (each a “Service” and collectively, the “Services”), we will collect information from you. We collect two types of information about our users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. The information we collect depends upon the particular Service you or the Customer choose to engage in, your interactions with us, and your internet browser settings.
Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that enables us to identify who you are, such as your first and last name, email address, mailing address, home and work telephone number, company name, job title, work mailing address, facsimile number, and other similar contact information. Personally Identifiable Information also includes login credentials, including your user ID, password and any other pertinent security details, which are necessary to authenticate and provide you with access to our Services. Certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information may also be defined as Personally Identifiable Information to the extent the two categories of information can be linked together. For users that log in to our Learn on Demand system for services, we collect information regarding the length of time the user spent on a particular training session and we maintain any data that may be generated during the course of a particular training session, which is immediately deleted once such training session is done.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that does not by itself enable us to identify a specific individual and includes information such as your device type, the name of the internet browser you use to browse our website, your age, gender, country and preferred speaking language, your web browsing history (i.e. the Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) for websites), Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, geolocation data including global positioning system data, network name, and internet or telecommunication services provider name. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources available on the World Wide Web (the “Web”). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (“TCP/IP”) network, such as the Web. Networks like the Web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination computer. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Web.
