What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, UseBecause collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how UseBecause visitors use its website. Allowing us to create a better user experience in the long run.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to our websites choose to interact with UseBecause in ways that require UseBecause to gather personally-identifying information. The two main ways in which this occurs are upon the purchase of an online course or submitting a contact form. In each case, UseBecause collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with UseBecause. UseBecause does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Online Course Usage Data

We store data on our servers about how website users are progressing through the respective course which they purchased. This is for two reasons. One reason is allow our system to react to website visitor engagement. This could be completion of a course chapter or delivering of a certificate to a user upon course completion. The second reason is to monitor how online courses are performing for users and ultimately use that information to improve our courses.
