INFORMATION THAT YolaEdX COLLECT FROM YOU

This is based on the EdX platform - https://www.edx.org/edx-privacy-policy


The online registration has not been available.


YolaEdX does not itself collect or store financial account numbers or identification issued by a governmental entity, employer, or other authority.


Members do not receive your Personal Information unless and until you enroll in a course. If you enroll in a course, the Member that offers the course will receive Personal Information from your YolaEdx account profile plus the information that YolaEdx collects about your activity and performance in the course in which you enrolled.


Cookies And Tracking Technologies on the YolaEdx Site

Like many companies, YolaEdx uses Cookies and other common Tracking Technologies on the YolaEdx Site and in email communications to help YolaEdx better understand your use and needs of the YolaEdx Site, current and future YolaEdx-related products and services, and how YolaEdx and Members can improve. For example:


based on your cookie settings, YolaEdx tracks information indicating, among other things, which pages of the YolaEdx Site were visited, the order in which they were visited, when they were visited, and which hyperlinks and other user interface controls were used;

YolaEdx may log the IP address, operating system, and browser software (including mobile use and device type when you use YolaEdx native mobile apps) you used when accessing the YolaEdx Site, and YolaEdx may be able to determine from an IP address your Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of your point of connectivity; and

YolaEdx may track and collect information from emails that YolaEdx sends to you, for example whether you opened the email or clicked on any links from the email.

YolaEdx also partners with third parties to help us track and understand your activity on the YolaEdx Site, how you interact with YolaEdx’s social media, and how you find or may be referred to the YolaEdx Site. Individual Members may separately use Tracking Technologies within their courses and email communications to understand your activity within a course and how you find or may be referred to a course on the YolaEdx Site.


YolaEdx and Members use Cookies and other Tracking Technologies for the following purposes:


when necessary for system administration, security, and integrity to ensure the YolaEdx Site works properly for you. Without these technologies, the YolaEdx Site may not function correctly;

to enable analytics, performance and functionality, to help YolaEdx and Members gather information about how visitors use the YolaEdx Site and monitor YolaEdx Site performance, and to enhance your experience by recognizing and remembering whether you have visited the YolaEdx Site before and may have any personal preferences; and

to support marketing by enabling YolaEdx and Members to deliver content relevant to your interests on the YolaEdx Site and third-party sites based on how you interact with YolaEdx or Member advertisements or content. YolaEdx and Members use “first-party” cookies, which means cookies served by YolaEdx or an individual Member, and also “third-party” cookies, which means cookies served by third parties that help YolaEdx and Members track this information.

You have some options for managing Cookies and other Tracking Technologies. These include:


Modifying your browser settings: You should be able to control how and whether your web browser accepts Cookies by adjusting its privacy and security settings. The “help” feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new Cookies, how to receive notification of new Cookies, and how to disable existing Cookies. If you reject YolaEdx’s Cookies, many functions and conveniences of the YolaEdx Site may not work properly.

Opting-out of certain third-party tracking and advertising: Some of the third parties used by YolaEdx or a Member for Cookies and Tracking Technologies offer the ability to opt-out from their tracking by following processes described on their websites. A list of some such third parties is maintained and available at the YolaEdx learner Help Center and includes, for some, links to applicable opt-out processes. Neither YolaEdx nor any Member is responsible for the effectiveness of any third-party opt-out options.

HOW YOUR INFORMATION IS SHARED

We do not share your information to anyone


HOW TO MANAGE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

You can manage your Personal Information through learner features on the YolaEdx Site and requests to the YolaEdx learner support team. If your request involves information controlled by a Member, YolaEdx learner support will notify and coordinate with the appropriate Member to address your request. YolaEdx will provide support to the extent required by applicable law (for example, learners in the European Union) and more broadly when possible, as a courtesy in our sole discretion. YolaEdx will notify you in the event that YolaEdx is unable to meet a request that is not legally required. Similarly, Members will only be obligated to comply with requests to the extent legally required, but may choose to comply with other requests in their sole discretion.


Access and correct your Personal Information

Much of your Personal Information is available in your YolaEdx account. Your name, email address, and other identifiable profile information is editable through the profile settings in your YolaEdx account except as noted below. Your account dashboard lists all current and archived courses in which you have enrolled and includes links to any Verified Certificates you may have earned. The dashboard also contains copies of your answers and other participation and performance in courses. Please contact YolaEdx learner support to access and update this or other information. If your request involves information controlled by a Member, YolaEdx learner support will notify the appropriate Member of your request.


Exceptions:


Usernames cannot ever be changed. This is an YolaEdx system restriction. Because usernames identify you in courses and elsewhere on the YolaEdx Site, YolaEdx encourages you to use discretion in choosing your username. If you want to protect your identity, do not use your real name or a name identifiable to you as your username. YolaEdx does not track or index every time or every place on the YolaEdx Site when or where a learner may volunteer Personal Information, so neither YolaEdx nor Members will be able to help you locate or manage all such instances. YolaEdx encourages you to use discretion before volunteering Personal Information on the YolaEdx Site. Restrict or object to the processing of Personal Information

If you want to manage emails and other communications to you, you may update your preferences in your YolaEdx account dashboard, follow the steps described in links at the bottom of email messages, or contact YolaEdx learner support. You may object to, or request that YolaEdx or a Member stop, its use of your Personal Information for other purposes by contacting the YolaEdx learner support team. If your request involves information controlled by a Member, YolaEdx learner support will notify the appropriate Member of your request. Please note that if you choose to restrict YolaEdx’s or a Member’s ability to process Personal Information, and the processing is otherwise required to provide you with various services and products offered on the YolaEdx Site, you may not be able to establish an YolaEdx user account or enroll for a course, and YolaEdx or a Member may not be able to provide you with those services or products.


With respect to your YolaEdx account, YolaEdx will permanently:


deactivate your YolaEdx account,
remove the active profile,
retire your username, and
remove you from YolaEdx email lists.
With respect to your Personal Information, YolaEdx will permanently delete your YolaEdx account profile Personal Information from the YolaEdx Site.


As noted above, to the extent that YolaEdx associates the information that YolaEdx collects directly or indirectly with an individual (for example, you), the association is based on Personal Information in your YolaEdx account profile. By erasing the Personal Information in your YolaEdx account profile, the remaining information about your activity on the YolaEdx Site will no longer be associated with you, except as noted below.


These changes will be applied to data stores that are used for operation of the YolaEdx Site including course administration by Members. If you enrolled in any courses on the YolaEdx Site, the YolaEdx learner support team will share your request with the Members that offered those courses.


Exceptions:


Deletion will not apply to historical activity logs or archives unless and until these logs and data naturally "age-off" the YolaEdx system.
YolaEdx does not track or index every time or every place on the YolaEdx Site when or where a learner may volunteer Personal Information, so neither YolaEdx nor Members will be able to help you locate or manage all such instances. YolaEdx encourages you to use discretion before voluntarily sharing your Personal Information on the YolaEdx Site.
YolaEdx will archive course data (in a manner and to the extent permitted under applicable law) to serve its mission to enable scientific research on cognitive science and education. These archives are used to produce encrypted research data packages for Members, and Personal Information may not be deleted from research data packages retained by Members.
YolaEdx and each applicable Member cannot always delete records of past interactions and transactions. For example, records relating to previous purchases on the YolaEdx Site must be retained for financial reporting, audit, and compliance reasons.
YolaEdx and each Member will retain and use Personal Information as necessary to comply with its legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce its agreements, and as otherwise permitted by applicable law.
Data retention
YolaEdx will retain your Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with services; to maintain a record of your transactions for financial reporting, audit, and compliance purposes; and to comply with YolaEdx’s legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce its agreements, and as otherwise permitted by applicable law. If you enroll in a Member’s course, such Member will also retain your Personal Information for as long as needed to provide you with services; to maintain a record of your transactions for financial reporting, audit, and compliance purposes; and to comply with its legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce its agreements, and as otherwise permitted by applicable law. Upon your request that YolaEdx deactivate your account and delete your information, YolaEdx will follow the process described above, including without limitation archiving your course data (in a manner and to the extent permitted under applicable law) to serve its mission to enable scientific research on cognitive science and education. These archives will be used to produce encrypted research data packages for Members, and each such Member may also keep and use course data for scientific research.
