Information We Collect
The Services do not require you to directly provide information to us. You may choose to provide contact information to us if you are member of Heterodox Academy, but providing this information to us is not required for you to use the Services.
The Site collects routine information from all visitors, including hardware or device model, IP address, other unique device identifiers, operating system version, and settings of the device you use to access the Site. In addition, when you access and interact with the Site, we and our service providers may collect certain information about those visits. The Services also may collect other information about you, your device, or your use of the Services in ways that we describe to you at the point of collection or otherwise with your consent.
How We Use Information Collected on the Services
How We Share Information Collected on the Services
We have in place physical, electronic and managerial procedures to protect the information the Services collects. However, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
Other Important Information
International Users. The Services are hosted in and managed from the United States. United States data protection and other relevant laws may not be the same as those in your jurisdiction. If you are located outside the United States, you consent to having any information processed in the United States.
Linked Services. The Services may link to sites operated by unaffiliated companies. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of unaffiliated companies to which the Services may link or provide access.
Children’s Privacy. We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13 without parental consent, unless permitted by law. If we learn that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information, we will delete it in accordance with applicable law.
Your California Privacy Rights. California residents are entitled once a year, free of charge, to request and obtain certain information regarding our disclosure, if any, of certain categories of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. We do not share personal information with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes.
Do-Not-Track Signals and Similar Mechanisms. Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they are aware of them. Because there currently is no industry standard concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals, the Services currently does not take action in response to these signals.
