what we collect and store
To access the site, you are required to provide an email address. We’ll use this information for purposes, such as, to:
- Create your account for our LMS
- Send you information and notifications about your account
If you log in via the Microsoft Single Sign On option, this will grant us access to your basic Microsoft profile data (username, first name, last name and profile picture). Of this, we only use first name and surname, to ensure that there is a name associated with your learning profile.
We collect and store data on site usage on a per user basis. This includes:
- Access of Pods and Pod packs
- Progress / completion of Pods and Pod Packs
- Last login date, number of sessions and pages visited.
- Quiz responses, assignments and/or essay submissions (if applicable).
- Browser name, browser version and device platform (this helps us optimise the site for browser compatibility for all of our users)
We store information about you for as long as your account exists.
who has access to your data
Members of our team have access to the information you provide us.
For example, both administrators and group leaders can access:
- your enrolled courses
- course progress
- username / email address.
Any additional information added in your WordPress User Profile can also be visible to the administrator(s).
who we share your data with
We may share site usage and progress reports with your Learning & Development department, or any other party who has commissioned this training for you, the user.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
embedded content from other websites
Content on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
how long we retain your data
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information provided at registration in their user profile. Website administrators can also see and edit that information. All user data is stored in association with that user’s registration and will be retained while the user is active on the site. Once a user is deleted from the site, all associated data will also be deleted.
