We may use that combined information to enhance and personalize your experience with us, to communicate with you about products, services, and events that may be of interest to you, for promotional purposes, and for other purposes described in this Privacy Statement and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep personal information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to.
To which parties does Learning Time share information?
We may share with third parties, without restriction, information that is not personal information or has been deidentified or anonymized such that the third party cannot personally identify you from the information we share.
We share personal information with contractors, service providers, business parties, advertisers and other third parties that we engage to provide services to us or to support our business and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep personal information confidential. The parties involved in the above processes may only process information when reasonably necessary for any of the purposes stated above and pursuant to our instructions.
We may share or transfer personal information if we enter a business transaction such as a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, or sale of some or all of our assets, or in preparation for any of these events in accordance with applicable laws.
We may also share your personal information with other parties based on your consent.
When we obtain information about you, we may transfer, process, and store such information outside of the country in which you reside, including in Hong Kong and Indonesia. By using the Services, you consent to the transfer to and processing and storage of your information in countries outside of your country of residence, which may have different data protection laws than those in the country where you reside. If you are located outside of Hong Kong or Indonesia, please be advised that by submitting information to Learning Time, you explicitly authorize and acknowledge its transfer to, and storage and processing in, Hong Kong and Indonesia. When we collect information from outside of Hong Kong or Indonesia, we may rely on various mechanisms to transfer and process that information in Hong Kong or Indonesia. Such mechanisms include, but are not limited to: your consent; the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims; legal arrangements such as data protection clauses; and the performance of a contract. If we rely solely on your consent, and not another mechanism, you have the right to withdraw your consent by contacting Learning Time’s customer support at email@example.com.
Children under the age of 13
In the event that a user places certain purchases based on his or her child’s age, we specifically also collect and process the name and date of birth of the child. Your provision of such information constitutes your consent to such processing. Further, if a user provides us additional information about his or her child when interacting with us (for example, via email or phone), we will also collect and process that information.
We will limit our collection of personal information of children to no more than is reasonably necessary for operation of the Site.
What rights and choices do users have?
Accessing and Changing Your Information. If you have an account with us, you can review and change the personal information associated with your account by logging into your account and visiting your account profile page. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
Opt-Out of Marketing. You may opt-out of receiving marketing solicitations directly from us by contacting Learning Time customer support at firstname.lastname@example.org. Even if you opt-out, we may still use and share the information we collect for non-marketing purposes.
Unsubscribe from Emails. Our marketing emails will include an automated way for you to opt out (unsubscribe) from marketing emails sent by us. To unsubscribe, please follow the instructions in the email you receive.
Interest-Based Advertising: Although we do not control third parties’ collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising or other targeted content, a number of these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way.
How does Learning Time secure information?
Although we employ technical and organizational controls that we believe are reasonably appropriate to protect personal information, including the use of secure databases for personal information, we cannot guarantee that our security precautions will protect against the loss or misuse of information. Similarly, we cannot guarantee the privacy or security of information you transmit over the Internet or that may be collected in transit by others, including contractors that provide services to us.
How long does Learning Time keep information?
We keep information for as long as necessary for the purposes mentioned in this Privacy Statement, including for the fulfillment of our contractual and legal obligations and for as long as a user accepts marketing communications from us. We may also process and retain information for other purposes, if and/or for as long as the law allows us to retain it for certain purposes. This includes defense against possible legal claims.
If you would like to request that we delete your personal information, please contact us at email@example.com. We cannot promise deletion will occur within a specific timeframe. In addition, there may be circumstances where we will not be able to honor your request. For example, if you request 100% deletion, we may still need to retain certain personal information to complete a transaction you initiated, to comply with legal and/or regulatory obligations, to notify you of product recalls or safety issues, if we become aware of abuse or other violations of our Terms of Service, or for other permitted purposes. If you request that we delete your information, it may affect our ability to provide you with products and services and may affect your ability to use the Site.
