When you provide us with personal information to become a learner on our Sites, make a purchase, or participate in an Alievo™ Course, you are indicating that you consent to have us collect and use that information only for the specific purposes stated in this policy. 

If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, such as marketing, we will ask you directly for your explicit consent and/or give you the opportunity to opt out or unsubscribe.

If, after choosing to participate, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you for either the collection of information, use or continued disclosure of your information.

All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by the PCI DSS, managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of companies such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

5. Third-party services

In general, the external vendors we work with will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary for them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, some third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies regarding the information we must provide them for your purchase transactions.

For these suppliers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies to understand how your personal information will be handled by these suppliers.

Some providers may be located or have facilities located in a different jurisdiction than you or us. If you choose to engage in a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, your information may be subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

For example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed through a payment gateway located in the United States, your personal information used to complete that transaction may be disclosed under United States law, including the Patriot Act. If you are located in the United States or outside of North America and your transaction is processed through a payment gateway located in Canada, your personal information used to complete that transaction may be disclosed under the laws of Canada, including the Privacy Act.
