We may change provisions of this Policy from time to time and will indicate when changes have been made by revising the date at the top of this Policy. We encourage you to review the Policy whenever you access the Services to make sure that you understand our practices. If we make material changes to this Policy, we will provide you with additional notice.
If you have any questions or unresolved privacy concerns, please contact us at [email protected].

We store, process, and maintain files and content that you create and/or upload using our Services, as well as other data related to your account in order to provide the Services to you.
We do not store your credit card information on our servers but rather use secure 3rd parties like Stripe or PayPal to process secure payments. We only ask for credit card information to complete and satisfy our rights and obligations with regard to such transaction, billing arrangement, and/or as otherwise authorized by you, and in that case, we use Stripe or PayPal as our secured payment partners.
Information about use of our Services: Our platforms and servers automatically collect usage information about your use of the Services, including the webpages visited, number of log-ins, data displayed or clicked on, actions taken, your language preference, device id, and other login information. We may collect automated error reports in the case of software malfunctions, which may contain some or all of the information in your account and content and may be reviewed to help resolve problems with the Services.
If you participate in a webcast or video conference with us, we may record the session and retain the recordings, and you should assume we are since our interactions are part of the Services. We own any content that you appear in and may feature, sell or create content from it. If you participate in a training or product course, we collect user information and completion data.
We collect information from the device and application you use to access our Services. Device data mainly means your IP address, operating system version, device type, device ID/MAC address, system and performance information, and browser type. If you are on a mobile device we also collect the UUID for that device.
We use a variety of technologies to collect this information, such as first party and third-party cookies and tracking services that employ cookies and page tags (also known as web beacons). This data includes usage and user statistics. Emails sent by Project Control Academy or by users through our Services also include page tags that allow the sender to collect information about who opened those emails and clicked on links in them. We provide more information on cookies below.
We also use Facebook, LinkedIn, and other providers to place “pixels” on many of our sites or apps so that we can understand your digital behavior and potentially later target you with related advertising. We also use Google Analytics to understand how long you might spend on our Sites or how you interact with our Services.
Like most websites today, our web servers keep log files that record data each time a device accesses those servers. The log files contain data about the nature of each access, including originating IP addresses, internet service providers, the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system versions, device type and timestamps.
If you arrive at any of our websites and platforms from an external source (such as a link on another website or in an email), we record information about the source that referred you to us.
Information from third parties and integration partners: We may obtain personal information from third parties and combine such information with the information that we collect through our Services and such information may be used for the purposes described in the “How We Use the Information We Collect” section below. For example:
How We Use the Information We Collect

We reserve the right at all times to review your content and information to help resolve problems with our platform, websites, or Services, or to ensure that you remain in compliance with our Terms of Service.

Social Media and Public Forums: Project Control Academy Services may include publicly accessible blogs, chats, comments, community forums, or private messaging features. Our Services may also contain links and interactive features with various social media platforms (e.g., LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter and the like, including widgets and connections to social media platforms). If you already use these platforms, their cookies may be set on your device when using our Site or other Services. You should be aware that Personal Information which you voluntarily include and transmit online in a publicly accessible blog, chat room, social media platform or otherwise online, or that you share in an open forum through any of our Services may be viewed and used by others without any restrictions or notifications or compensation to you. We are unable to control such uses of your information when interacting with a social media platform, and by using such services you assume the risk that the Personal Information provided by you may be viewed and used by third parties for any number of purposes. Always use social media with an understanding your data may be seen, replicated, shared and distributed for the world to see.
Where We Store Your Personal Data
Data Storage: All data that you provide to use through our Services is transferred or stored on the cloud through servers we pay for from popular providers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology; all payment data is stored by our payment processors and is never stored on our servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password that enables you to access your account and the Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We recommend that you not share your password and that you change it frequently.
Data Security: Project Control Academy takes reasonable measures to protect your personal information and your content from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, modification, and destruction and to ensure that your content remains protected and available to you. Unfortunately, the transmission of data via the internet is not completely secure and although we do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted through the Services or any device. All use and transmissions are at your own risk. You alone are responsible for your account and data shared with others, so to protect your user account, we encourage you to:
It's your responsibility to only provide individuals with permission to use your account where you're comfortable sharing this personal data with them. Please remember that if other people have access to your account, then they can access your personal data and app controls and that it may impact your personalized recommendations and be included in your data.
Data Retention: Project Control Academy stores the information we collect for as long as necessary for the purpose for which it was originally collected and in compliance with our legal obligations. The retention periods applied by Project Control Academy comply with applicable legislation then in effect, namely:
We may retain certain information for legitimate business purposes or as required by law.

Links to External Sites
Data Posted in App or on Forums
Project Control Academy users may have the ability to post content to one or more Project Control Academy forums, such as chat rooms, community sites, group calls or video, comments in apps or sites, and online bulletin boards. You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personal information in any forum, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other people. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these instances, as it is public and can be used by others including Project Control Academy at our discretion. Please take care when using these features. You may request and obtain removal of such posted content by contacting us at [email protected] and specifically identifying the content to be removed. Please be advised that any such removal does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of all traces of the content posted on the Project Control Academy forums.

Do Not Track Disclosure
Regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission have promoted the concept of Do Not Track as a mechanism to permit Internet users to control online tracking activity across websites through their browser settings. Since no industry standard has been adopted, we currently do not process or comply with any web browser’s “do-not-track” signal or other similar mechanism that indicates a request to disable online tracking of individual users who visit the Project Control Academy website or use our Services.
