Stonebridge Learning Privacy Policy

Last updated: November 1, 2016

Privacy is important to us. So is the privacy of our website visitors, Students, and Clients.

This Privacy Policy contains information about how Stonebridge Learning, LLC [“Stonebridge Learning”] collects, uses, discloses, transfers, and stores your information. This Privacy Policy applies to all Stonebridge Learning products and services, including www.stonebridgelearning.com [our “Website”], the Vitruvius Learning Management System [“Vitruvius LMS”], our applications, and our ePubs [collectively, our “Services”]. We welcome your questions and feedback about this policy. Simply contact us at info@stonebridgelearning.com.

Our Services are not directed to children younger than 13 and we would never collect or maintain information from individuals we actually know are under 13. If you are under 13 years of age, do not use our Services.

Collection and Disclosure of Non-Personal Information

Stonebridge Learning collects anonymous tracking data when users visit our Website. Whenever you request a page from our Website, navigation data such as your computer’s Internet Protocol [“IP”] address, browser type and version, operating system, time and date of your visit, and other statistics are stored in a data log file. We aggregate this anonymous data and use it for statistical purposes, helping us to improve the navigation, usability, and content of our Website. We may also share this data in aggregate form with others.

Collection and Disclosure of Personal Information

Personal information is data used to identify or contact a specific individual. Personal information is collected only when you choose provide it to us. Stonebridge Learning will never sell your personal information for advertising purposes and will keep it confidential except as provided in this policy. In the unlikely event that Stonebridge Learning or any of our Services is sold, transferred, or otherwise subject to a merger, consolidation, or acquisition, your personal information may be transferred as part of that transaction.

Vitruvius LMS User Accounts

Creation of a User Account requires providing us with an email address, a password you select, and certain contact information such as your name, address, and phone number. Stonebridge Learning will send you administrative emails related to your use of Vitruvius LMS; you cannot opt out of these emails. We will never email you to ask for your password or other account information. If you receive such an email, please notify us so we can investigate the matter.

Users who choose to register for a Stonebridge Learning course become Students. Student User Accounts track information about progress in registered courses. Course registration fees, if applicable, are processed by a third-party payment provider. Your personal information will be subject to their privacy policy and terms of use. If you register for a course using a passcode from a Stonebridge Learning Client, only your name and certain information about your registration in and completion of contracted courses will be shared with them.

Stonebridge Learning Clients will have a Client User Account providing access to certain information about student registrations and completions in contracted courses.

Newsletter and Web Forms

Our website visitors, Students, and Clients are invited to voluntarily connect with us in a number of ways, including through email, by using our online support forms, or by subscribing to our newsletter. Participation is completely voluntary and you can unsubscribe at any time.

Surveys

From time to time, Stonebridge Learning requests information from our Website visitors, Students, and Clients via online surveys. These surveys may collect quantitative and qualitative assessments of our Services, as well as optional contact and demographic information. Participation is completely voluntary, and you have a choice whether or not to disclose any information. Responses to surveys will be used for improving our services to you and may be aggregated to develop reports about our Services. No personal information will ever be shared.

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file sent to your browser from a website and stored on your computer for record-keeping purposes. Stonebridge Learning does not intentionally use cookies. However, some of our third-party providers may send cookies to your browser. Stonebridge Learning has no access to or control over these cookies. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use the portions of our Services enabled by third-party providers.

How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals

Stonebridge Learning does not track our Website visitors, Students, or Clients over time or across third-party websites to provide targeted advertising. Therefore, we do not respond to Do Not Track [“DNT”] signals. However, some of our third-party providers may keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, enabling them to tailor what they present to you. You can set the DNT settings on your browser so third parties know you do not wish to be tracked.

Security

The security of your information is important to us. We use appropriate procedures to safeguard the information we collect. However, no Internet data transmission is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee data security. You use our services and website at your own risk. You are solely responsible and liable for any activity that occurs in your account, and you must keep your account password secure.

Links to Outside Websites

Stonebridge Learning is not responsible for the content or privacy practices on outside websites hyperlinked from our Services. When you go to an outside website, you are subject to the privacy, security, and terms of use policies of that website.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is effective as of November 1, 2016. We reserve the right to update or change our Privacy Policy at any time. If we make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will place a prominent notice on our Website. Your continued use of our Services will constitute your acknowledgment of any modifications and your consent to abide and be bound by the active Privacy Policy.
