1. What Information Do We Collect
Personal information that you voluntarily provide us.
Information, other than non-personal information, that we collect which can be used to identify an individual (“personal information”). This would include your first name, last name, personal address, phone number, email address, your location information, your course details, certain usage information (defined below), such as IP address (if defined as personal information by applicable laws and regulations - for details see “usage information” below).
Non-personal information we collect when you access or use our Platform.
Non-personal information is information that does not necessarily identify you as an individual (“non-personal information”). This may include a variety of information, including, but not limited to, Usage information (defined below) and information related to your interaction with our Platform.
“Usage information” —information about an individual’s online activity that, by itself, does not identify the individual, such as: your activity in using our Platform (for example, terms you search for, videos you watch, your views and interactions with content and ads, purchase activity, people with whom you communicate or share content with, and activity on third-party sites and apps that use our services), technical information, including your browser type, service provider, IP address (IP address, by itself, may or may not identify you as an individual under the applicable laws and therefore this type of information may also be listed here or under subsection 1.1 “Personal information that you voluntarily provide us” above), operating system and web pages visited, and metadata, which means information related to items you made available through the Platform, such as the date or time of taking a photograph or video which you shared. We and our third-party partners may use various technologies to collect and store usage information in connection with our Platform. These may include things like cookies, other similar technologies or data collection tools (such as pixels, web beacons, and server logs), which we collectively refer to as “information collection tools.”
Generally, we do not consider usage information as personal information because usage information by itself does not usually identify an individual. Personal information and usage information, as well as different types of usage information, may be linked together and, once linked, may identify an individual. Some usage information may be personal information under applicable law and will be treated as such. If we do combine non-personal information with personal information, the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
We may collect different information from or about you depending on how you use the Platform. Below are some examples to help you better understand the information we collect.

The ads may be based on things we know about you, like your Usage information and System information (as detailed in Section 1), and things that these ad service providers know about you based on their tracking information. The ads can be based on your recent activity or activity over time and across other sites and services, and may be tailored to your interests.

We will retain your Personal Information for as long as is necessary to provide you with the services that you have requested from us or for as long as the law otherwise permits and obligates us.
To determine the appropriate retention period for your Personal Information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Information; the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Information; the purposes for which we process your Personal Information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means; the applicable legal requirements, minimum required retention period prescribed by law or recommended as best practice, the period during which a claim can be made with respect to an agreement or other matter, whether the personal information has been aggregated or pseudonymized, and other relevant criteria.

8. Jurisdiction-Specific Rules
If you live in California, you have certain rights to request information. Users outside of the United States should note that we transfer information to the US and other areas outside of the European Economic Area in compliance with the underlying regulations as detailed below.
8.1 Users in California
- California Shine the Light law- If you are a California resident, you have the right to request certain details about what personal information we share with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes. To submit your request, send an email to email@example.com with the phrase “California Shine the Light” and include your mailing address, state of residence, and email address.
- California Do-Not-Track (DNT) disclosure requirements- Since the internet industry is still working on Do Not Track standards, solutions, and implementations, we do not currently recognize or respond to browser-initiated Do Not Track signals. (DNT is a web browser setting which you may set to "on" or "off." When turned on, you instruct the browser to disable tracking of your web browsing activities. When you leave the DNT setting disabled in your web browser, you tell the websites you visit that you agree to have your activity tracked.)
California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA): CCPA requires specific disclosures for California residents. Once the CCPA applies to us, we will comply with the specific requirements under the law. As of now, this Privacy Notice lists down the categories of information we collect and the sources of that information. We explain how we use your information. We explain when we may share your information with our affiliates and third parties. We do not sell your personal information. The CCPA also provides the right to request information about how we collect, use, and disclose your personal information. And it gives you the right to access your information and request that we delete that information. Finally, the CCPA provides the right to not be discriminated against for exercising your privacy rights. We describe the choices you have to manage your privacy and data across the Platform (rights which allow you to access, review, update, and delete your information). If you have any questions or requests related to your rights under the CCPA, you (or your authorized agent) can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
8.2 Users Outside of the U.S.
TheraHive, Inc. is headquartered in California, and in order to provide the services to you we must transfer your information to the United States and process it there, in compliance with the applicable privacy laws. By visiting or using our Platform, you consent to storage of your information on servers located in the United States. If you are using the Platform from outside the United States, you consent to the transfer, storage, and processing of your information in and to the United States or other countries. Specifically, personal information collected in Switzerland and the European Economic Area (“EEA”) is transferred and stored outside those areas. To transfer data from the EEA to other countries, such as the United States, we will comply with legal frameworks that establish an equivalent level of protection with that under European Union/UK law.
Information may also be processed outside of Switzerland and the EEA by our service providers, including to process transactions, facilitate payments, and provide support services as described in Section 4. We have entered into information processing agreements with our service providers that restrict and regulate their processing of your information on our behalf. By submitting your information or using our Platform, you consent to this transfer, storage, and processing by TheraHive and its processors.
The European Commission has approved the use of model contract clauses as a means of ensuring adequate protection when transferring data outside of the EEA. By incorporating model contract clauses into a contract established between the parties transferring data, personal data is considered protected when transferred outside the EEA or the UK to countries which are not covered by an adequacy decision. We may also rely on these model contract clauses for data transfers.

What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files stored by your browser as you browse the internet. They can be used to collect, store, and share information about your activities across websites, including on TheraHive Platform. Cookies also allow us to remember things about your visits to TheraHive Platform, like your preferred language, and to make the Platform easier to use.
The type of cookies we use
There are different types of cookies that we use:
“Persistent Cookie” is stored as a file on your computer and it remains there when you close your web browser. This cookie is used to improve your experience of using the website, for example, to store your preferences for your next visit to our website. This cookie is activated again once you visit the website that created that particular cookie.
