Please note, for some services or features, we may collect and transfer information to a service provider or, where permitted, to our clients who control each Path, or with other partners, affiliates or entites. Additional Terms, or other agreements, laws or protections may apply to you and the information collected from you through our Platform (for example, if you access our Platform through your university or employer). Further, should you arrive at a third-party site or service when using our Platform, please take a moment review the privacy policies of those third-party sites before you disclose information to them.
What Information do we collect and how do we use it?
For the purposes of this Policy, “Personal Information” means any information that can be used to identify you as an individual, including your full name; address; online contact information, such as an email address, screen name or username; or any persistent identifier that can be used to recognize you over time and across different services; precise geolocation information; and any information about an individual linked to such identifying information.
Our Platform allows users to complete a series of structured learning objectives or “Paths.” Users make learning social by uploading their own content to demonstrate how they achieved a Path’s learning objectives. Using the Platform, users may write posts and upload pictures, audio or other content (collectively, “User Content”) to share their learning experience. Path access, content, and management is handled by the
Path’s creator and/or sponsor (an “Administrator”).
We may collect information on behalf of any client who controls a Path and share your Personal Information or User Content with them, as discussed further below.
When you register with us
When you register with us you provide certain Personal Information. For example, we may collect your profile photo, name, email address, your birthdate, information about your professional or educational background, your address, the gender with which you identify, and other Personal Information listed on the registration form. We may use this information to contact you on behalf of a Path Administrator, regarding our products and service, or as necessary to provide our service and to maintain your account. We may also aggregate and anonymize your Personal Information to analyze user trends and create reports for our internal use, or that may be shared with third parties and marketers.
When you use a Path, you will also create a profile visible to all users of that Path, which may contain some, but not all, of the information you provided when you registered with us (“Profile Information”). Your Profile Information may be shared with other users of a Path, or the public, as discussed below.
When you post content in a Path
By posting User Content to the Platform, you consent to the collection and any permitted sharing of the User Content and Personal Information you provide. Because the content in Paths may differ depending on the nature and scope of each Path, the Personal Information and User Content we may collect varies accordingly. If you provide User Content, we may collect certain metadata associated with or included as part of a file you upload, such as file size, time, date, and location. Do not provide any information or upload any files you do not wish to share with the group authorized to see your User Content as part of a given Path, which may include members of the general public.
When you use the App
Our Platform is accessible through our App on iOS, Android and other mobile operating systems. When you use our App, we may collect, as described above, any Personal Information and User Content you provide. We may also collect precise location information, and certain information about your device (such as the operating system version and device model) that we do not use to identify you personally. We may associate any location information you provide with your posts or other User Content if you consent to the collection of location information or allow geotagging of your User Content.
When you browse our Site
Additionally, our servers may identify users by their IP address (e.g. to determine the city from which you access the Site). An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. We may also log click-stream data for purposes of system administration, to improve our Site and App, and to report aggregate information to our clients and partners and/or other internal uses related to the Site. Click-stream data is information collected by our computers when you request pages from the Site or App. Click-stream data may include information such as the page served, the time, the source and type of browser making the request, the most recent page view, and other non-personal information. This data helps us analyze how visitors arrive at our Site, what type of content is most popular, what type of visitors in the aggregate are interested in particular kinds of properties, advertising, and the like.
If you sign up for our mailing list or other Site emails
We may offer a mailing list that provides information about the Platform, available Paths, us, our clients and partners, or other information we believe may interest you. If you sign up for these communications, we may collect Personal Information, such as your name and email address, so that we can send you personalized emails. Please note, you may receive communications either by requesting more information, or by allowing emails from us when you registered on the Platform.
If you contact us through the Site or for tech support
You may contact us using the form on our Site for tech support and other questions you may have. If you contact us using our Site, we will collect the Personal Information requested on the applicable form, typically your name and email address. All information you provide through the ‘contact us’ form is used only in the context of resolving your request or inquiry.
Cookies and tracking
Please note, most modern browsers include a “do not track” feature that may help protect your privacy. However, because there is not yet a defined response to do-not-track requests, our Site does not respond to your browser’s do-not-track request.
How is my Personal Information shared?
Your Personal Information and User Content may be shared differently depending on your choices, the settings of a Path, other users, and the laws applicable to you or your Personal Information. Generally, we share your Personal Information with and make your User Content accessible to a Path’s Administrator. The Administrator may be your employer, university, or any other organization or entity managing the Path.
Posts in a Path may be available to the public or limited to users of a private Path by default, depending on the choices of the Path creator and you. In a private Path, your User Content and Profile Information are visible to other users in the Path. In a public Path, your name, photo, place of study, employment, professional title, and any User Content you provide as part of your completion of that Path may be available to the Administrator and any other member of the public who registers with Unleesh and joins the Path.
If a Path is open to the public, any member of the public who registers with Unleesh and joins the Path will have access to your public posts. In private Paths, only users authorized by the Administrator (e.g. other users from your company or school) may have access to your public posts. Further, other users may “track” your progress on a Path. In such cases, these users will be alerted to your posts, achievements and other information about your progress in any Path.
Please note, we may share Personal Information as part of other agreements you have entered and in which you granted consent for sharing (such as an agreement between you and your employer or educator). Remember to read other agreements that might affect the sharing of your Personal Information. We are not liable for any other party’s use, disclosure, or collection of your Personal Information.
In addition to your choices above, we may, without your consent, share any Personal Information and User Content we collect with third parties who provide essential services on our behalf, such as providers of data hosting or processing services, payment processors, or other service providers. We may also aggregate and anonymize information you provide us for internal use or in order to provide reports about our user base and Paths to third parties and marketers.
Finally, we may share any Platform Data or Personal Information we possess as part of a sale or transfer of our business, or substantially all of our assets. We might also share your Personal Information if we need to protect the interests of Unleesh, our customers, property, or the public. Similarly, we may share Personal Information with governmental authorities or otherwise in response to a legal request that we believe requires us to do so. We will share any such information to the extent we believe that request requires. Legal requests include, for example, search warrants, subpoenas, and other court orders. We may also receive legal requests or orders from jurisdictions outside the United States, in which case you consent for your Personal Information to be transferred to any applicable country.
What choices do I have about collecting, using, and disclosing my information?
When you upload User Content, you may be able to select whether to make your post public or private. You may limit e-mail communications from us or opt-out of receiving emails from third parties, or you can unsubscribe from email newsletters or similar communications by clicking on the unsubscribe link in every email. You may opt out of all information sharing with third parties for marketing purposes by contacting us at the address or email below and informing us of your request.
How can I access or update my Personal Information?
You may access your User Content and Profile Information through our Platform by logging into your profile. You can update or change your Profile Information, password, and other information using the “Me” menu of your profile. To obtain a list of the personal information that Unleesh holds about you, or for residents of California (as required by California law) the personal information Unleesh has disclosed about you to third parties for direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year (if any) please send a written, signed request to:

COPPA compliance and the rights of parents
Unleesh is committed to compliance with the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). Our Platform is intended for general audiences, such as educators and parents, and is not directed to children. If we discover that one of our users is under the age of 13, in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), we will not collect, use or share any of the child’s personal information (as defined by COPPA) unless we first notify the child’s parent and obtain the parent’s consent as required by COPPA. However, we reserve the right to block access to certain features of our Platform (and any associated collection of personal information) if we learn that a child is under age 13, rather than seeking parental consent as described above.
Parents have the right to review, edit, request the deletion, or prevent further collection or use of their children's personal information. Parents may also choose to agree to the collection and use of their child’s information, but not allow disclosure of such information to third parties unless it is inherently part of the Platform, in accordance with COPPA. Parents may request any of these actions, or make inquiries regarding our privacy practices, by sending an email to or writing to us at the address below.
US-EU/US Swiss Safe Harbor
We comply with the US-EU and US-Swiss Safe Harbor Frameworks. These US Department of Commerce frameworks relate to the collection, use and retention of personal information collected from users in the European Union and Switzerland. We adhere to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access and enforcement. To learn more about the Safe Harbor programs, please visit http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/.
Limitation of liability
By providing us with any Personal information you expressly and unconditionally release and hold harmless Unleesh, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, related companies and their respective shareholders, owners, members, directors, officers, employees and agents (collectively, the “Releasees”) from any and all liability for any injuries, loss or damage of any kind arising from or in connection with the use and/or misuse of your collected Personal Information. In addition, while we take reasonable steps to prevent third-party companies from making unauthorized use of your personal information, we cannot be held liable for any injuries, loss or damage of any kind arising from or in connection with the use and/or misuse of your collected Personal Information or User Content by those third parties.
