We may use your Personal Data for one of the following activities:

  • Provide Services to you as agreed in the contract;
  • For recruitment purposes in cases where you have applied for a job with us;
  • When you have opted-in, for marketing purposes;
  • For internal analysis and research to help us improve our Products and Services;
  • Keeping accounts and financial records related to any business or other activity carried on by us; and
  • Sending relevant administrative information such as notices related to Product, Service, or policy changes.

Third Party Disclosures

We do not share your Personal Data with third parties for their own marketing purposes.

We may disclose your Personal Data internally with our affiliates and externally with third parties as set forth below.  When we disclose Personal Data, the recipient is required to keep that Personal Data confidential, secure and process the Personal Data only for the specific purpose for which they are engaged:

  • Government and Professional Licensing Agencies: We disclose Personal Data, Exam Information, Licensure Updates and other information relating to regulatory boards or state governments for inclusion in their files and records. In addition, we may also disclose such information to licensing agencies or professional associations for inclusion in their files and records. In certain states, licensees’ Personal Data, course and examination information, and Licensure Updates are considered information that is in the public domain.
  • Sub-Processors/Service Providers: We share information with our sub-processors, including affiliated companies and other third-party providers who provide services to us. A list of our sub-processors can be found here:
  • Law Enforcement/Public Authorities: We may be required to disclose information to public authorities, regulators or governmental bodies, as required by the applicable law or regulation, under a code of practice or conduct, where necessary to facilitate any investigation, or where we believe that disclosure is appropriate to protect our rights and interests or the rights and interests of third parties.
  • Corporate Transactions: If we are acquired by, or merge with another company, any of our assets are transferred to another company, or bankruptcy proceeding ensues, we may transfer the information we have collected from you to the other party.

Security Measures

We have put in place various electronic safeguards and managerial processes designed to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data integrity, and ensure the appropriate use of Personal Data. We use industry best practices and guidance from sources such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (“NIST”), Payment Card Industry (“PCI”), standards promulgated by the Center for Internet Security (“CIS”), and International Standards Organization (“ISO”), ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (Security techniques -- Information security management systems -- Requirements) to design and maintain our information security program. We maintain Personal Data, course and examination information, and Licensure Updates on secured computers and all course and examination individuals, and employer accounts are password protected.  No such security or safeguards are 100% effective, but we will take commercially reasonable efforts to employ security measures designed to protect the information. No Personal Data is knowingly disclosed to third parties except as described herein. Unfortunately, since data transmission over the Internet cannot be completely secure, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to or by us.

We limit access to your Personal Data to those employees, agents, contractors, affiliates, sub-processors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your Personal Data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have procedures put in place to deal with any suspected Personal Data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

Location and Retention

The location of the servers where your Personal Data is stored will be dependent on the specific Services provided by us and governed by the contract between us and you.  Please refer to our list of sub-processors for further information on the locations where your Personal Data may be processed by our sub-processors.

We will only retain your Personal Data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your Personal Data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect of our relationship with you.

To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the Personal Data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Data, the purposes for which we process your Personal Data, whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other retention requirements.

You have the right to request that we delete your information. Please see “Your Legal Rights” below for further information.

Unless agreed otherwise, we may use your Personal Data after anonymization (so that it can no longer be identified as your information) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information for a reasonable period of time without further notice to you. We may also use your Personal Data as part of statistical, aggregated data for research purposes in a pseudonymized form.

International Transfers

We may share your Personal Data with our affiliates for the purposes stated above. This may involve transferring your information outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Whenever we transfer your Personal Data outside of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by implementing the following safeguards:

Other International Transfers. Personal Data may be processed outside your jurisdiction by our sub-processors. Please refer to our list of sub-processors and the locations where Personal Data may be processed by the sub-processors. We ensure that our sub-processors offer an adequate level of protection to the Personal Data by entering into appropriate agreements committing them to compliance with GDPR and other applicable laws.

Legal Bases for Processing

We process your Personal Data in accordance with the contract with you, the GDPR and the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). Based on the specific circumstances, the legal basis for our processing is one of the following:

  • Performance of a Contract. We collect and process Personal Data for the purposes of the performance of a contract with you.
  • In certain cases where required under the law, we process your Personal Data based on your specific and informed consent. For example, where you have opted-in to receive our marketing information, we may use your information to send you news and newsletters, special offers, and promotions, or to otherwise contact you about Products or Services or information we think may interest you.
  • Legitimate Interest. We process Personal Data where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party). This includes activities related to everyday business operations, such as invoice processing, business planning, and handling student service-related queries and complaints, and other activities such as recruitment.
  • Legal Obligation. We process your Personal Data when we need to comply with a legal obligation, meet our on-going regulatory and compliance obligations, including in relation to recording and monitoring communications, disclosures to tax authorities, financial service regulators and other regulatory and governmental bodies, and to investigate security incidents and prevent crime.
  • Other bases. We may rely on other legal or legitimate interests for processing of your Personal Data as set out in the contract with you or as notified by us to you and we will let you know at the applicable time what those legal or legitimate interests are.

 

Your Legal Rights

Privacy Rights for Data Subjects in the European Union

The GDPR sets forth certain rights to EU residents.  Mbition is committed to full compliance with the GDPR. Any terms defined in the GDPR have the same meaning when used in this section.

Under the GDPR, we are a data controller of an individual’s Personal Data with respect to the Services provided by Mbition. Our contract with you sets out our mandate to process your Personal Data. 

If you are a data subject under the GDPR, you have the following rights in relation to your Personal Data.

  • Request access to your Personal Data
  • Request correction of your Personal Data
  • Request erasure of your Personal Data
  • Object to processing of your Personal Data
  • Request restriction of processing of your Personal Data
  • Request transfer of your Personal Data
  • Right to withdraw consent

To exercise any of these rights, please submit a request to us by emailing our Data Protection Officer at: [email protected]

Privacy Rights for California Citizens

Mbition is committed to full compliance with the CCPA. Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this section. We are a “Business” under the CCPA with respect to our practices in managing your Personal Data. The CCPA requires Businesses to disclose whether they sell Personal Data. In the preceding twelve (12) months, we have not sold Personal Data.

We may share Personal Data with third parties or allow them to collect Personal Data from our Sites or Services if those third parties are authorized service providers or business partners who have agreed to our contractual limitations as to their retention, use, and disclosure of such Personal Data, or if you use the Site or Services to interact with third parties or direct us to disclose your Personal Data to third parties.

The CCPA requires that we detail the categories of Personal Data that we share or disclose for certain “business purposes,” such as disclosures to service providers that assist us with securing our services or marketing our products. We have collected the following categories of Personal Data for our business purposes during the preceding twelve (12) months:

 

  • Identifiers;
  • Information protected against security breaches;
  • Commercial information;
  • Protected classification information;
  • Internet activity information;
  • Geolocation information;
  • Audio/Video data;
  • Biometrics information;
  • Financial information;
  • Professional and employment-related information;
  • Education information; and
  • Inferences drawn from any of the above information categories.

We obtain the categories of Personal Data listed above from the following categories of sources:

  • Directly from you. For example, from forms you complete on our Site or with regard to our Services.
  • Indirectly from you. For example, from observing your actions on our Site or interactions with our advertisers.

The CCPA provides California residents with specific rights regarding their Personal Data:

  • Request access to your Personal Data, the categories of Personal Data, the categories of sources of the Personal Data and data portability.
  • Request deletion or modifications to your Personal Data.
  • If we sold or disclosed your Personal Data for a business purpose; (i) a list disclosing the sales, identifying the Personal Data categories that each category of recipient purchased; and (ii) a separate list with disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the Personal Data categories that each category of recipient obtained.
  • Right to Opt-Out of the Sale of Personal Data.

To exercise any of these rights, please submit a verifiable consumer request by either:

  • Calling us at: 1-800-532-7649 or
  • Emailing our Data Protection Officer at: [email protected]

If you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right to direct us to not sell your Personal Data at any time (the “right to opt-out”). We do not sell the Personal Data of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “right to opt-in”) from either the consumer who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age. Consumers who opt-in to Personal Data sales may opt-out of future sales at any time. To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us by visiting our webpage and sending us a message.

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of the foregoing rights under CCPA. However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your Personal Data’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.

California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our Site that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of Personal Data to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send us an electronic message through our Site or write us at our address listed on our webpage.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Data or to exercise any of the other rights under CCPA. Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request. You may only make such a request twice within any twelve (12) month period. Your request must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected Personal Data. As a security measure, we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity. Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize Personal Data sales. However, you may change your mind and opt back in to Personal Data sales at any time by visiting our Site and sending us a message. We will only use Personal Data provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request.

We endeavour to respond to all legitimate requests under CCPA within forty-five (45) days. Occasionally it may take us longer if your request is particularly complex or you have made several requests. In this case, we will notify you.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the Personal Data is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

  • Complete the transaction for which we collected the Personal Data, provide a Product or Service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
  • Debug Products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
  • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the Personal Data deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  • Comply with a legal obligation.
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that Personal Data that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

Personal Data Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In

We may engage in marketing campaigns in order to introduce new products or services that may be of interest to our current or prospective students. Where required by applicable law, we will only engage in such marketing communications if the individual has opted into these communications.  Individuals may opt-out of the processing of their Personal Data by exercising their right to withdraw consent and the right to object to the processing of their information. To opt-out of commercial emails, simply click the link labelled “unsubscribe” at the bottom of any email sent by us. Please note that even if you opt-out of commercial emails, we may still need to contact you with important transactional information about your account or a scheduled course in order to fulfil a contractual obligation. For example, we will still send course confirmations and reminders, information about course changes, and information about course or examination results even if commercial emails have been opted-out (or not opted-in).

We have no control over third parties and we assume no responsibility for the availability, content, accuracy or privacy practices of other websites, services or goods that may be linked to, or advertised on, such third-party websites.

INFORMATION ABOUT OUR USE OF COOKIES

Our website, student portals, and educational delivery services (our “Site” or “Sites”) use cookies to distinguish you from other users of our Site. This helps us provide you with a good experience when you browse our Site or take a course and also allows us to improve our Site. This cookie policy provides you with clear and comprehensive information about the cookies and similar technologies we use, and our purposes for using them.

Websites that are accessible from particular parts of the European Union are required to obtain consent to using or storing cookies (or using similar technologies) on your computers or mobile device.  For further information about this policy, please contact [email protected]

The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Site may be transmitted to and stored by us or by third-party providers on servers in the United States, or other countries whose laws do not protect privacy at a level equivalent to the one applied in the European Union.

Your Consent

Most browsers automatically accept cookies placement on your computer, by us and our third-party service providers.

Please note that disabling cookies will affect the functionality of our sites, and may prevent you from being able to access certain features on the sites.

For further information about deleting or blocking cookies, please visit: https://www.aboutcookies.org/

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon as you visit our site.

Some, but not all, cookies provide us with personal information, for example where you enter details into a form on our Site.  Cookies may also provide us with information about your IP address (which may be personal information in certain jurisdictions), the duration of your browsing session, your browser type and your operating system.

We use cookies and the information they collect for the following reasons:

  • to remember browsing preferences such as local language;
  • to remember details about your previous visits to the Site to personalize and improve your browsing experience;
  • to administer and organize the Site;
  • to analyze use of the Site to make improvements to the Site; and
  • to compile statistics and understand (in general, aggregated terms) who uses our Site.

Key Concepts

First and third-party cookies: whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the domain placing the cookie.

First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g., cookies placed by www.mbitiontolearn.com).

Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.

Persistent cookies: these cookies remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.

Session cookies: these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

 

How to delete and block our cookies

You block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies), you may not be able to access all or parts of our site. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon as you visit our site.

  • Changing your cookie settings.  Please note that internet browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. These settings are usually found in the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu of your internet browser. In order to understand these settings, the following links may be helpful. Otherwise you should use the ‘Help’ option in your internet browser for more details.

Some of our performance cookies are managed for us by third parties.  We do not allow the third party to use the cookies for any purpose other than those listed above.

‘Preferences’ cookies are used to provide services or to remember settings to improve your visit.

We use ‘Preferences’ cookies for such purposes as:

  • Remember settings you’ve applied such as layout, text size, language, preferences and colors
  • Remember if we’ve already asked you if you want to fill in a survey
  • Remember if you have engaged with a particular component or product list on the Site so that don’t show it again
  • Show you when you’re logged in to the Site
  • To provide and show embedded video content

Some of these cookies are managed for us by third parties. We do not allow the third party to use the cookies for any purpose other than those listed above.

‘Marketing’ cookies are used to track your visit to our Site and other websites, including the pages you have visited and the links you have followed, which allows third parties to display targeted ads to you on the websites you visit.

If you are in the EU, you may opt-out of certain third-party cookies that we and other websites may use for targeting through  https://www.youronlinechoices.eu or www.aboutads.info.  Opting out of one or more ad networks only means that those particular members no longer will deliver targeted content or ads to you. It does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content or ads on our websites or other third-party websites. If your browser is configured to reject cookies when you visit one of the above referenced opt-out pages, and you later erase your cookies, use a different computer or change Web browsers, your preference may no longer be active. Since these cookies are managed by third parties, you should refer to the third parties’ own website privacy notifications and policies for further information (see below for more information about the particular targeting cookies used on our Site).

Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages.

We and our third-party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML e-mails to our customers, to help us track e-mail response rates, identify when our e-mails are viewed, and track whether our e-mails are forwarded.
