We have further committed to refer unresolved Privacy Shield complaints to JAMS, an alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint from us, or if we have not addressed your complaint to your satisfaction, please visit https://www.jamsadr.com/eu-us-privacy-shield for more information or to file a complaint. The services of JAMS are provided at no cost to you.

We may also collect mailing addresses, phone numbers, professional title, company name, user names, and a password, as needed to provide services.

DATA COLLECTED VIA TECHNOLOGY
Internet cookies are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing a website. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our websites.
- Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. You can usually remove and reject cookies from our site via your browser settings. If you remove or reject our cookies, it may affect how our websites and services work.
- If you do not wish us to track emails we send you, some email services allow you to adjust your display to turn off HTML or disable download of images which should effectively disable our email tracking, or you may unsubscribe from our marketing emails.
- You may opt out of tracking of certain information collected by Google Analytics, one of our analytics providers as discussed above, by clicking here.
USE OF YOUR DATA
Personal information you submit to us is used either to respond to requests that you make, or to aid us in serving you better. eThink uses your personal information in the following ways: to create and maintain your account; to identify you as a user in our system; to process support tickets that you may initiate; to operate, maintain, and improve our services; to personalize and improve your experience; to send you administrative e-mail; to respond to your comments or inquiries; to send you surveys, promotional communications about our products and services with your permission; to protect, investigate, and deter against fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activity; and to make telephone calls to you, or to solicit your feedback with your permission. We may use data which has been de-identified and aggregated data for additional purposes.
DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described as follows or with your express consent.
THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS
We may share your personal information with third party service providers for the sole purpose of providing you with the services that we provide. For example, we may share data with service providers who host our websites (such as Rackspace or Amazon Web Services), provide client relationship management service (Zendesk), or provide email services on our behalf.
CLIENT ORGANIZATIONS (EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS, COMPANIES, AND SIMILAR ORGANIZATIONS)
We will share your information with the educational institution, corporation, or organization (the data controller) which is linked to your use of eThink’s services. In this context eThink is a data processor. For example, this would apply:
- If your educational institution hosts Moodle or Totara with us and has given you access to the system
- Your employer uses eThink to host its learning management system.
We may also share de-identified and aggregated data with others for their own uses.
YOUR RIGHTS REGARDING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION: eThink takes reasonable steps to help protect your personal information in an effort to prevent unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Despite these measures, you should know that eThink cannot fully eliminate security risks associated with personal information. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
