Introduction

We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it through our compliance with this Policy. This Policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide to us when you visit the website https://courses.lexercise.com (our “Website”), and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting and disclosing that information.

This Policy applies to any information that we collect on and in connection with your use of the Website. This Policy does not apply to any other information that we collect by any means. For example, if you choose to use our separate Lexercise® Therapist Platform in connection with any courses you take via the Website, the Lexercise® Therapist Privacy Policy (available online at https://www.lexercise.com/about/legal/therapist-privacy-policy) describes our policies and practices with respect to the information we may collect from you or that you may provide to us when you use the Lexercise® Therapist Platform.

Please read this Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, you can choose not to use our Website. By accessing or using our Website, you agree to this Policy. This Policy may change from time to time. Your continued use of the Website after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes.

Information We Collect About You and How We Collect It

We may collect several types of information from and about users of our Website, including information by which users may be personally identified or information about a user that is maintained in personally-identifiable form (collectively “Personal Information”). Specifically, we may collect the following:

  • Your name.

  • Your IP address or mobile device ID.
  • Payment information, such as credit or debit card information and billing contact information, used to process transactions on our Website (unless you are a student, employee or other constituent at an Organization that has paid our subscription fees directly, in which case we do not collect this information from you).

With the exception of your IP address or mobile device ID (which we collect automatically as you navigate through or interact with our Website, as described below in the section titled “Traffic, Usage and Computer/Device Information”), we collect this information directly from you when you submit it to us in connection with registering to use our Website, completing a purchase on our Website, reporting a problem with our Website, and whenever you access our Website.

Additionally, as you navigate through and interact with our Website, we may automatically collect certain traffic data, usage information, and information about your computer equipment or mobile device, such as your browser and operating system, your wireless carrier, configuration data, clickstream analytics and your actions and patterns when you use our Website. The technologies we use for this automatic data collection may include cookies that are stored on the browser of your computer or mobile device, small embedded electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags and single-pixel gifs) and other types of embedded code. We collect this information to manage our content and improve users’ use of our Website; count and review the number of users of our Website and their usage patterns; to track key performance indicators such as pages accessed, frequency of access and other statistical information related to our Website (for example, recording the popularity of certain content and verifying system and server integrity); to identify the portion of users who accesses our Website via different web browsers; to recognize if user is a return user of our Website; to store information about a user’s visits; to remember a user’s preferences; and for similar purposes in connection with monitoring, maintaining and improving our Website.

Use and Disclosure of Aggregated or De-Identified Data

We may convert or combine some Personal Information of users into de-identified or aggregated data that does not disclose any of the Personal Information of any individual user. We may use and disclose to third parties any such de-identified or aggregated data (including traffic and usage data that does not identify you personally) for any lawful purpose.

Tracking and “Do Not Track”

Tracking involves the use of cookies, web beacons, or other embedded code or tracking technologies to collect, analyze and store information on a user’s behavior over time on multiple sites, including information on the sites visited, products viewed, products purchased and other online interactions. Tracking information can be used to enable companies to make interest-based (behavioral) advertising available to users on multiple sites that they visit.

We do not currently collect Personal Information about your online activities over time and across third-party sites for tracking purposes, and we do not currently allow third parties to collect Personal Information through or using our Website that could be used by them to analyze and store information about your online activities over time and across third-party sites for tracking purposes. Therefore, our Website does not respond to any “do not track” signals sent by your browser or mobile device, and if your browser or mobile device sends a “do not track” signal to our Website, our Website will not treat you differently from users who do not send such signals.

Disclosure of Your Information

We do not share, sell or lease your Personal Information to any third parties, and we only permit use of your Personal Information internally by our own personnel, except in the following, limited circumstances:

  • If you are using our Website as a student, employee or other constituent of an Organization, we may disclose Personal Information to your Organization in connection with their monitoring and management of your use of our Website and professional education materials.
  • We may disclose Personal Information to any contractors, service providers and other third parties who need to know such information to provide services to us that support our hosting, maintenance and operation of our Website and our permitted uses of Personal Information under this Policy. For example, we may use a third party cloud-hosting infrastructure service provider (e.g., Amazon Web Services, Digital Ocean, Google Cloud or Microsoft Azure) to store certain of your Personal Information securely, and we use a third party payment processor to process any transactions you make on our Website securely.
  • We may disclose Personal Information to a buyer or other successor to our business in the event of a sale of equity or assets, reorganization, merger or a similar corporate transaction, and any due diligence review with respect to any such proposed transaction.
  • We may disclose Personal Information to comply with any court order, law or legal process, including to meet national security and law enforcement requirements and to respond to any government or regulatory request or audit.
  • We may disclose Personal Information to enforce or apply any legal agreements between us and you or between us and your Organization (such as our Lexercise® Professional Education Terms of Service), or if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of our customers or others.

We may also disclose your Personal Information for any purpose disclosed when the information is provided, and for any other purpose with your consent.
