The following sets out the privacy policy on The Course Mix in offering online courses to you.

The Course Mix   (“TheCourseMix”, “we”, “us” or “our”), which includes TheCourseMix’ affiliated companies, is aware that you may wish to be informed about how your personally identifying data and information, such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone/fax numbers, credit/debit card information, demographic information, gender information and responses to survey questions (“Data”) that you may provide to TheCourseMix, are treated.  Accordingly, we have developed this Privacy Policy (“Policy”) to explain our use of your Data as well as our precautions to keep your Data confidential and secure.  By ordering our products and using our services, you are consenting to the Data collection and use practices described in this Policy, as modified from time to time by us in our sole discretion.  We reserve the right to modify our Policy and invite you to consult this Policy from time to time in order to familiarise yourself with any changes. We will post any new Policy on our websites, changing the date at the bottom of such Policy.

The terms of this Policy are without prejudice to any contractual terms you may enter into with us, which shall prevail over the terms of this Policy. 

Pledge on Privacy.
TheCourseMix does not collect and process Data except when voluntarily provided by you. We ensure compliance by our staff with strict standards of security and confidentiality and in processing your Data we pledge to fully comply with internationally recognized standards of privacy protection.

Intended Use of Data. TheCourseMix collects and processes Data only for specific and limited purposes which we inform you about when you wish to use certain services. For example, we may collect and use Data to provide you with our products or services, to market products and services we believe might be of interest to you or to communicate with you. In addition, we may use your Data to evaluate the effectiveness of and improve our services to our visitors and customers, for our own internal statistics to evaluate customer interests as well as purchasing and other trends among customers and to better determine product development and marketing strategies. By submitting your Data, you expressly consent to such use. TheCourseMix keeps your Data only for as long as is reasonably needed for such purposes and in accordance with any applicable legal or ethical reporting or document retention requirements.
Currently, our services do not require any form of registration, thereby allowing you to visit our websites, without telling us who you are. However, some services may require registration. When you register with us, you may need to complete certain fields (some are required, some are optional) as well as to choose a user name and password. In these situations, if you chose to withhold any Data requested by us, it may not be possible for you to gain access to certain parts of our websites and for us to respond to your queries.

Non-Disclosure of Information.
TheCourseMix shall never sell, rent, share or otherwise distribute or make available your Data to third parties outside of the TheCourseMix group of companies, except when required to do so for legal or regulatory purposes or when Data may occasionally be transferred to third parties who act for or on behalf of TheCourseMix for further processing in accordance with the purposes for which your Data were originally collected.  When disclosure of Data to third parties is likely or necessary for whatever reason, TheCourseMix shall ensure that such third parties provide the same level of protection as TheCourseMix, and shall contractually require them to process Data transferred only for the purposes authorized by you and on a confidential and secure basis.

Promotions. From time to time, we may offer contests and other promotions (each, a “Promotion“) that require online registration. Persons wishing to participate in those Promotions may be asked to provide some personal information. Some of the information that may be requested for this purpose will be optional, but other requested information, such as the individual’s name and e-mail address, will be mandatory because it will be needed to identify and notify winners.

Right of Access.
You have the right to access and update your Data or to require their deletion. We endeavor to ensure that your Data are up to date, accurate and complete. If you wish to access, correct or delete your Data held by us, please contact TheCourseMix. An administration charge of £10.00 is charged for this service.

Security / Confidentiality.
We undertake to take reasonable steps in order not to allow your Data to be seen by third parties other than those who act for or on behalf of TheCourseMix and have agreed to treat your Data confidential and secure. Access to Data is restricted to those of our employees on a need to know basis and who have been trained to observe strict standards of confidentiality in handling your Data.
To ensure the security and confidentiality of Data that TheCourseMix collects online, we use data networks protected, inter alia, by industry standard firewalls and password protection. Although we have tried to create secure, reliable and trustworthy websites for our visitors, please be aware that the Internet is generally not regarded as a complete secure environment, and that therefore the confidentiality of the Data provided by you or material transmitted via our websites or by e-mail cannot be guaranteed by TheCourseMix. Thus, we cannot be responsible or liable for the security of your Data whilst in transit via the Internet to us.

Data and Children.
To respect the privacy of children and to comply with the laws designed to protect children, children under the age of 18 should not provide any Data.  TheCourseMix will not knowingly collect, use, or disclose Data from a minor under the age of 18, without obtaining prior consent from a person with parental responsibility (parent, guardian).
Our websites are general audience sites that are not designed nor intended to collect Data from children under the age of 18. We ask that parents supervise their children while online.

Links to Other Websites.
Our websites may contain links to third party web sites. These linked sites are not under TheCourseMix’ control and we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the contents of any such linked site, or any link contained in any linked site. We provide such links only as a convenience, and the inclusion of a link on our websites does not imply endorsement of the linked site by TheCourseMix. If you provide any personal information through any such third party web site, your transaction will occur on such third party’s web site and the personal information you provide will be collected by, and controlled by the privacy policy of, that third party. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with the privacy policies and practices of any such third parties.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS POLICY DOES NOT ADDRESS THE PRIVACY OR INFORMATION PRACTICES OF ANY THIRD PARTIES.

Trademark Rights. TheCourseMix and its affiliates, licensors and content providers are the owners of all the trademarks used on the TheCourseMix websites. Third parties are not allowed to use and apply any of the trademarks, logos and identifying marks without the express written consent of TheCourseMix.
