Privacy Policy

At ITCE, we care about the confidentiality and security of your personal information. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to keep your Personal Information secure in compliance with this Privacy Policy. "Personal Information" is defined below. As used in this Privacy Policy, "we," "us," and "our" refer to ITCE.

This Privacy Policy only applies to information that we collect through the ITCE  Website (the "Site," which consists of all content and pages located within the ITCE.com web domain) and does not apply to information that we may collect from you in other ways (for example, this policy does not apply to information that you may provide to us over the phone, by fax, or through conventional mail). 

Usernames and Postings

Comments or other information posted by you to our forums or other areas of the Site designed for public communications or communications among registered course members may be viewed and downloaded by others who visit the Site. For this reason, we encourage you to use discretion when deciding whether to post any information that can be used to identify you to those forums (or other public areas).

Consent to Processing Outside Home Country

By using our Site, or providing information to ITCE, you understand and unambiguously consent to the collection, use, disclosure and retention of information in the European Union and other countries and territories, for the purposes set forth in this Privacy Policy and the ITCE  Terms of Services. You hereby consent to the collection, use, disclosure, and retention by ITCE of your Personal Information as described under this Privacy Policy, including but not limited to the transfer of your personal data between edX and the third parties, affiliates, and subsidiaries described in this Privacy Policy. For further certainty, any consent relating to a right to transfer information referred to in this paragraph shall be deemed to include your consent to the transfer of the applicable Personal Information to a jurisdiction which may provide a different level of privacy protection than that available in your own country.

If you do not agree with these terms, then please do not access, browse, or register for the Site. If you choose not to provide us with certain information required to provide you with various services offered on our Site, you may not be able to establish a user account and we may not be able to provide you with those services.
