For data that App Academy collects directly from you, the following better explains the circumstances in which personal information may be collected and the types of information collected:

  • Your contact information such as your email address and telephone number; and
  • The content of your inquiry, feedback, or other communication.


In most cases when you visit the Site, you will not provide any information to us directly, in which case the only data that we collect is indirect information, as explained below.

However, if we receive information that provides us with a good faith belief that there is an exigent emergency involving the danger of death or serious physical injury to a person, we may provide information to law enforcement trying to prevent or mitigate the danger (if we have it), to be determined on a case-by-case basis. 


  1. Public Blogs or Forums

App Academy may offer public blogs or forums from time to time (the "Forums") where you can share comments and thoughts.

Please keep in mind that information you post or make available in Forums will be publicly available.

  1. Third Party Links

On the Site, we may provide, for informational purposes only, links to other websites or resources with which we do not have a contractual relationship and over which we do not have control (“External Websites”). Such links are not paid advertisements, nor do they constitute an endorsement by App Academy of those External Websites, and are provided to you only as a convenience. By clicking on links to External Websites, the operators of the External Websites may collect your personal information. We are not responsible for the content or data collection practices of those External Websites, and your use of External Websites is subject to their respective terms of use and privacy policies.


  1. Third Party Social Plugins

On the Site, we provide third-party “share” buttons for Quora, Facebook or other social media sites, which may function as web beacons when you interact with the button. Please note that you may send to the third party the information that you are viewing with App Academy when you “share”. If you are not logged into your account with the third party, then the third party may not know your identity. If you are logged in to your account with the third party, then the third party may be able to link information or actions about your interactions with App Academy to your account with them. Please refer to each third party’s privacy policies to learn more about its data practices.


  1. How Long Do We Keep Your Personal Information? 

We retain personal information for the purposes stated in this Privacy Policy. To determine how long we keep personal information we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of your information, the reasons for which we collect and process your personal data, and applicable legal requirements. 


In some instances, we may choose to anonymize personal information instead of deleting it.  We may do this for statistical use, for instance. When we choose to anonymize, we make sure that there is no way that the personal information can be linked back to you or any specific user.

  1. Protecting Your Personal Information

We have put in place reasonable and appropriate security measures designed to prevent personal information from being lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed.  For example, we use encryption, secure socket layer, firewalls, and password protection.


However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, and we cannot and do not guarantee that personal information is completely secure and safe from such risks.  By using the Site, App, and/or Services, you understand and assume the risks associated with your activities on the internet.

 

If you have reason to believe that your information is no longer secure, please let us know by contacting us.

Your Privacy Rights

If you are a resident of California, you have specific rights regarding your personal information.  This section describes your rights under California law.  You may exercise your rights following the methods described under Exercising Your California Privacy Rights below.

  1. Right to Know About Personal Information Collected, Disclosed, or Sold: You have the right to request that App Academy disclose to you certain information about the personal information we have collected, used, disclosed, and sold over the past twelve (12) months.  
  2. Right to Delete Personal Information: You have the right to request that App Academy delete personal information we may hold about you.  Please be aware that we may not always be able to delete your personal information.  For example, there may be business or operational reasons why we need to retain personal information.  If we deny your request to delete personal information, we will inform you of the basis for our denial in our response to you.
  3. Right to Opt-Out of Sale of Personal Information:  You have the right to opt out of the sale of your personal information.  In addition, if you direct us not to sell your personal information, we will consider it a request pursuant to California’s “Shine the Light” law to stop sharing your personal information covered by that law with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
  4. Right to Non-Discrimination:  You have the right to not receive discriminatory treatment from App Academy for exercising any of your rights described under this “Your Rights” section.  This means we will not treat you differently for exercising any of the rights described above.

Exercising Your Privacy Rights

To exercise your rights, you must submit a verifiable request to us.  You may exercise each right once every twelve (12) months.  To submit a data rights request, please use one of the methods described below:

App Academy will need to verify your identity first in order to respond to your request.  To verify your request, we will ask you to confirm information we have previously collected about you. If we ask you to verify your identity and you do not promptly cooperate, we may be unable to fulfill your request.

We will respond to your rights request within forty-five (45) days from the date we receive it.  In some cases, we may require additional time to complete your request and will inform you if additional time is needed.  Where additional time is needed, we may take up to a maximum of ninety (90) additional days to complete your request.    


Authorized Agents

You may designate an authorized agent to submit a request on your behalf.  If you are using an authorized agent to exercise your rights, App Academy may require that you:

  1. Provide the authorized agent written permission designating them to submit the request on your behalf; and
  2. Verify your own identity directly with App Academy.

App Academy reserves the right to deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized directly by you to act on your behalf.


Financial Incentives

App Academy does not offer financial incentives or price or service differences in exchange for the retention or sale of personal information.  

  1. International Transfers

App Academy is based in the United States. The personal information that we collect is sent to and stored on servers located in the United States. Such storage is necessary in order to process the information.  We also transfer personal information to our affiliates and/or to the third parties mentioned in the circumstances described above, which may be located outside of your country or regional area, and may be processed by staff, agents, and contractors operating outside of your country or regional area. In particular, information provided to us or collected by us will be transferred to and processed in the United States. The data protection laws of the United States or other countries may not be as comprehensive as or equivalent to those in your country of residence. We take appropriate steps to protect personal information when it is transferred and rely on legally-provided mechanisms to lawfully transfer personal information across borders.

  1. Additional European and International Data Rights 

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation and certain other countries’ data protection laws provide certain rights for data subjects. If you are a resident of the European Economic Area or another country with data protection laws that provide for certain data subject rights, you may submit a request to exercise your rights.  We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws.  Depending on your country of residence, your rights may include:

  • The right to be informed – that’s a right to be informed about how we use your personal information (and that’s what we’re doing in this Privacy Policy);
  • The right of access – that’s a right to make what’s known as a ‘data subject access request’ for a copy of the personal information we hold about you;
  • The right to rectification – that’s a right to request that we correct personal information about you that may be incomplete or inaccurate (though we generally recommend first making any changes in your account);
  • The right to erasure (also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’) – that’s where in certain circumstances you can ask us to delete the personal information we have about you.  Please note that even if you request for your personal information to be deleted, we may need to retain certain information for us to: meet our legal or regulatory compliance obligations, such as maintaining records of transactions you have made with us; exercise, establish or defend legal claims; and to protect against fraudulent or abusive activity;
  • The right to restrict processing – that’s a right for you in certain circumstances to ask us to suspend processing personal information;
  • The right to data portability – that’s a right for you to ask us for a copy of your personal information in a common format (for example, a .csv file); and
  • The right to object – that’s a right for you to object to us processing your personal information (for example, if you object to us processing your data for direct marketing).
  • Withdraw Consent— if we have collected and processed your personal information with your consent, you have the right to revoke that consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
  • File a complaint—that’s the right to file a complaint with a supervisory authority about our collection and processing of your personal information.

To submit a request, please contact us using the information described below, and we will consider your request in accordance with applicable laws.


These rights are subject to certain rules around when you can exercise them.  We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. 


We will respond to all legitimate requests within thirty (30) days. Occasionally it may take us longer than thirty (30) days if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated as required by law.


If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, including any requests to exercise your legal rights, please contact us.
