Welcome! Your privacy is critically important to us. We've created this page to provide answers to questions that you might have about our privacy practices about Edredo and its learning management system.
When you create an account on the Services (an "Account"), we'll ask you for information such as, but not limited to, your name, username, password, age, location, profession, your picture, and email address, which is hereby referred to as "Account Information." We may use Account Information, alone or together with other information, to enhance and improve the Services, such as by personalization. We use your email address to verify your Account and to communicate with you, as described in more detail below. We also allow users to look for their friends by email address/username.
You can link your Account to certain Third-Party Services. In order to do so, you may provide us with your username or other credentials for a Third-Party Service, and you may then be required to log into that Service. Upon the completion of this process, we will receive a token that allows us to access your account on that service so that we can, for example, integrate your account with that third-party service if you ask us to do so. We do not receive or store your passwords for your Third-Party Service accounts.
In certain cases, we may partner with Third-Party Services that may provide information about you. Such information could include, for example, your gender, depending on whether you have disclosed that information to that third party and made it available for other products/services to access. Depending on the extent of this information obtained, we may use it to develop new Services or to improve or enhance the current Product/Services.
As part of the Services, you may occasionally receive email and other communications from us. Product and administrative communications relating to your Account (e.g., for Account recovery or password reset) are considered part of the Services and your Account, from which you may not be able to opt-out. We also may send you other kinds of emails, which you can opt-out of either from your Account Settings page or by using the unsubscribe link in the emails themselves, depending on the source and method of email communication.
User Content: By default, all sharing through the Services is
public, and when you provide us with content, it is published so that anyone
can view it. This means you should assume that anything you publish is
publicly accessible unless you have explicitly selected specific content to be
shared privately. There are certain exceptions where a few content types, such
as direct email messages and comments, can only be viewed by their intended
However, please keep in mind that anything you share privately with another user may be posted publicly by that user. Content published and shared publicly is accessible to everyone, including search engines, and you may lose any privacy rights you might have regarding that content. In addition, information shared publicly may be copied and shared throughout the Internet, including through actions or features native to the Services.
Indigenous Features: The Services allow you to perform native actions that are integral to our products, such as liking a post, reposting a post, commenting on a post, and following a post. All these actions are public, meaning anyone can view the details of a post, such as who liked it, reposted it, or replied to it. There are exceptions where some or all of these actions, such as commenting on a post, can be done anonymously. We use information about these indigenous actions to improve the Services, personalize your Edredo account and experience, and provide you with new posts relevant to your interests, better search results, and more relevant advertising.
Information Related to Use of the Services/data collected via technology: We
collect information about how people use the Services, including those with an
Account. This information is collected in our log files each time you interact
with the Services. We use internal tools and third-party applications and
services, such as Google Analytics and Apache Unomi, to collect and analyze
this information. Some of this information may be associated with your
Internet Protocol Address ("IP Address"), connected with your Account, or used
in aggregate form for statistical purposes. We also collect your IP Address
when you make a post or add any content, including anonymous posts or
comments. This information helps us enhance, improve, protect, and develop new
Services, personalize content, provide targeted advertising, improve search
results, identify trending or popular content, fight spam, malware, and
identity theft, and ensure legal and safety compliance.
"COOKIES": We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which remain on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personalized and interactive experience on our Site. We may also store unique or near-unique identifiers associated with your Account in our cookies.
Information Related to Your Web Browser: We automatically receive and record information from your web browser when you interact with the Services, including your browser type and version, device type, operating system and version, language preference, referring website or service, date and time of each request, screen display information, and information from cookies placed on your web browser.
Location Information: In some cases, we collect and store information about your approximate location by converting your IP Address into a rough geolocation.
Information Related to Your Mobile Device: We may collect and store information related to your mobile device. In some cases, we may receive, generate, or assign a unique identifier to your mobile device for the purposes described above in "Information Related to Use of the Services."
Information Shared with Other Third Parties: We may share or disclose non-private information, aggregate information, or other non-personally-identifying information with individuals and entities we do business with.
