This Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy”) describes how Corrections Learning Academy (as owned and operated by IPS_Innovative Prison Systems) (“Corrections Learning”, “we”, or “us”) collects, uses and discloses information from and about you when you visit and use correctionslearning.online and associated websites, applications and virtual learning environments/online campus platforms (collectively, the “Websites”), as well as your ability to control certain uses of that information. It also describes certain data protection rights which may apply under applicable law.

Collection of information

Information you provide

Corrections Learning Academy collects information from you when you choose to provide it to us. For example, we may collect your information when you submit an online form requesting information about one of our course offerings (“Course”), otherwise provide information to us through the Websites, or otherwise contact us.

The information we collect may include personal information – name, email address, telephone number, date of birth, prior employment background information, work experience, and the content of any communications that we exchange, as well as non-personal information. In some cases, we require your personal information to comply with a legal obligation.

Failure to provide personal information

Failure to provide certain information may make it difficult or impossible for you to access some services through the Websites (for example, to register for and complete Courses). You should ensure that personal information submitted to us is accurate and up-to-date. For example, we need a current email address to communicate with you about the Course in which you choose to enrol.

Comments

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.

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

Information security

We are committed to protecting the security of your information. We maintain what we believe to be appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure your information and to prevent unauthorized access, maintain accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of your information. The accuracy, safety, and security of your information also depend on you. Where we have given you or where you have chosen a password for access to certain parts of the website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask that you not share your password with anyone. Even though we do our best to protect your information, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure, and we cannot guarantee our security measures. We are not responsible for any unauthorized access to or acquisition of your information.

How long we retain 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.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their 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.

Accessing and managing your personal information

If you are enrolled in a Course, you may access and/or update your personal information through your user profile and if you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
