Our commitment to privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage.

Our commitment to children's privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Who we share your data with

Our general policy is that we do not share personal data with third-parties unless you ask us to. There are, however, certain limited exceptions that are described below. 

Service providers & product suppliers

We use third-parties to perform services and provide products on our behalf, including package delivery, printing, payment processing, marketing, advertising, digital forensics, research, analytics, inquiry, training, reporting, and customer service.

We use the information you provide only to provide the services that power the online store and learning management system. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to provide the expected service or product.

We use the information customers provide about themselves when placing an order only to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

We use the information customer's provide about someone else when placing an order only to facilitate shipment of the product and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. We use opt-in emails collected during the course of business to do follow-up marketing to our customers. We do not share their email addresses with third-parties.

Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online by you in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses. 

Sponsors & exhibitors

When we host training events & conferences, we provide the exhibitor/sponsor with attendees’ physical mailing address (where permissible to do so). The exhibitor/sponsor is allowed to send two direct mailings to attendees (one before the conference and one after the conference), and does not receive attendees’ email or phone number. We also provide access to free sponsored webinars & live seminar training sessions, and if you register for these events, the contact information you enter on the webinar, live seminar training, or e-Learning registration page is provided to the sponsor. The sponsor can then contact you with information about their services (where permissible by law).


Where permissible by law, we may gather information for litigation support, investigative, due diligence, or other related purposes. For example, if the general counsel of your employer hired our firm to conduct an investigation related to allegations of a fraud, it is possible that we would have your personal information on record as part of the investigation. In that scenario, we are required to maintain the confidentiality of the evidence as per the terms of the contract with the client and per the statutes related to private investigation for that state, if applicable. As such, details regarding evidence is prohibited from disclosure.   

What rights you have over your data


If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Right to access & change personal information

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information you provide in you user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. The following websites and subdomains house personal information that is independent of each other. To review and update your information, you will have to go to each one separately if applicable. For example, if you purchased something from the store, but did not register as a user on the primary website, you will have an account for the store, but not on the primary website. Below are the login links for each site:   

Withdrawing consent

In instances where our ability to process your personal information is based on consent, including marketing purposes, you have the right to revoke that consent at any time. You may make such a request in writing to the address indicated in the Contact Information section of this page. 

Erasure or "right to be forgotten"

Some jurisdictions provide individuals with a right to require organizations holding their personal data to erase it. In addition to complying with such requirements in specific jurisdictions, we will do our best to comply with any request to delete information we have collected about you at your request. Note that some information, such as litigation records or personal information required to verify an individual's identity related to services provided during the due diligence or investigative processes, must be retained. Additionally, exercising your right to be forgotten may mean that we are no longer able to provide you with certain benefits or services that you have requested. Please submit your request in writing to the address indicated in the Contact Information section of this page.

Objecting to processing

If you believe that we are improperly processing your personal information, you may submit a request to change it to the address indicated in the Contact Information section of this page. We will review the request and inform you of our response.

Making a complaint against us

We encourage anyone with questions or complaints about our privacy policy or practices to bring them to our attention. If we have failed to resolve the issue and you would like to make a complaint against us, some jurisdictions have regulatory bodies to receive and review such complaints, such as the Federal Trade Commission in the United States. Individuals within the European Union have the right to lodge a complaint about a violation regarding their personal data with a supervisory authority in the EU Member State of their residence, place of work, or place of the alleged violation. See the Contact Information section of this page for the contact information of our EU representative. 

Your California Privacy Rights

The California "Shine the Light" law permits California residents who visit our website to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, details regarding their personal information (if any) that we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes within the previous calendar year. If applicable, our response to this request will include a list of categories of personal information that we shared and the names and addresses of the third parties.

If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to the address indicated in the Contact Information section of this page.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.

Contact information

Should you have other questions or concerns about these privacy policies, please email our support team at [email protected]. Other ways of contacting us can be located in our Support Center.

Plugin: Smush

Note: Smush does not interact with end users on your website. The only input option Smush has is to a newsletter subscription for site admins only. If you would like to notify your users of this in your privacy policy, you can use the information below.

Smush sends images to the WPMU DEV servers to optimize them for web use. This includes the transfer of EXIF data. The EXIF data will either be stripped or returned as it is. It is not stored on the WPMU DEV servers.

Smush uses a third-party email service (Drip) to send informational emails to the site administrator. The administrator's email address is sent to Drip and a cookie is set by the service. Only administrator information is collected by Drip.
