Embedded content from other websites
Articles or other pages on this site may include embedded content (e.g. charts, help and feedback widgets etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
We do our best to keep your Personal Data safe. We use safe protocols for communication and transferring data (such as HTTPS). We use trusted partners such as Amazon S3 for our web data infrastructure. We use anonymizing and pseudonymizing where suitable. We monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks. Where applicable, relevant data is not stored on Learning Markets servers but rather is stored on partner servers who are compliant with GDPR. For example, email delivery information is stored with MailChimp’s servers, credit card information is stored with Stripe, survey data is stored with SurveyMonkey, and support information is stored with Zendesk. In all such cases we securely interface with these partners to cause some event to take place, such as the billing of a credit card, but we do not transfer or transmit information from our servers to their servers in any way.
Even though we try our best we can not guarantee the security of information. However, we promise to notify suitable authorities of data breaches. We will also notify you if there is a threat to your rights or interests. We will do everything we reasonably can to prevent security breaches and to assist authorities should any breaches occur.
