Collection of PII by Spaced Repetition Systems

When Spaced Repetition Systems collects PII, such as your full name, email address and birth date, from you it is because you are voluntarily submitting PII to us in order to register as a Member, or in order to create courses or participate in activities like creating a personal profile ('Your Profile'), in connection with content or suggestions you submit to us, or because you want us to furnish you with products, services or information.

You may also choose to voluntarily provide or store PII or non-PII information in Your Profile or provide or store PII or non-PII information on other public forums provided on our Site, (collectively 'Content') that you choose to post to the Site (Content posted by any User is 'User Content'). If you choose to make Your Profile or any information from Your Profile public or provide any User Content on other public forums provided on our Site, you do so at your sole discretion and risk.

Members can change their Registration Data (as defined below) and Your Profile information at any time and can control how Visitors, other Members and Spaced Repetition Systems communicate with them by controlling their account settings, available within the 'Edit Profile' portion of Your Profile.

Spaced Repetition Systems collects information from you at several different points on the Site in the manner set forth below: Member Registration and Profile: In order to access certain information and services on the Site, you must first become a Member by completing our member registration form. During the registration process you will be required to provide registration data, which may include PII such as your name and e-mail address (such information is the 'Registration Data'). The Registration Data will automatically become incorporated into Your Profile; however, in the Your Profile section of the Site, you have the option to edit your profile. You also have the option of adding certain User Content to Your Profile. If Your Profile information changes you may correct, update or remove it. You can edit Your Profile information by going to the Your Profile page and clicking on the 'Edit Your Profile' button. Unless a User has opted out of receiving such e-mails during the registration process, Spaced Repetition Systems may occasionally send Users who provide us with their e-mail addresses information about special offers, Site updates, contests and other offerings via e-mail. We may also send information about products and offerings of our partners that we think may be of interest to our Members and Subscribers. To opt out of receiving these e-mails from us, click 'unsubscribe' on the e-mail and follow the instructions.

Cookies: Cookies are small bits of information that the Site places on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies remember information about your activities on our Site and enable Spaced Repetition Systems to make your visits to our Site more enjoyable. For example, cookies can store your password for easy logon to a Site you have previously visited, can save your preferences for a personalized home page. Information about your activities on our Site and other non-PII about you may also be used to limit the online ads you encounter to those we believe are consistent with your interests. Third party advertisements displayed on our Site may also contain cookies set by Internet advertising companies or advertisers. Spaced Repetition Systems does not control these cookies and visitors to our Site should check the privacy policy of the Internet advertising company or advertiser to see whether and how it uses cookies.

Spaced Repetition Systems may use cookies and similar tools to relate your use of our Site to PII obtained from you or a reputable third party. For example, if you have asked us to provide you information about our upcoming products or promotions, cookie and/or click stream data about your activities on our Site may allow us to limit the materials we provide you to items we think you will find interesting, based on your prior online activities and preferences. However, if Spaced Repetition Systems wishes to combine your personal and cookie or click stream information in this manner, we will obtain your express affirmative consent.

You can program your computer to warn you each time a cookie is being sent or to refuse cookies completely. However, without cookies you may not have access to certain features on our Site, or contests.

Spaced Repetition Systems also uses web beacons (also known as action tags or single pixel gifs) to access Spaced Repetition Systems cookies and in connection with the services we offer through our Site. A web beacon is a transparent image placed on a web page that sends a signal when a person visits that page. This enables us to assess the popularity and effectiveness of the materials on our Site. We may also use web beacons in connection with e-mails we send to our Users, to let us know whether and when the e-mail was opened. No PII is transmitted through web beacons. We also collect IP (Internet Protocol) addresses to analyze trends, administer our Site, track a user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Notice of Spaced Repetition Systems PII's Practices

When you voluntarily provide PII to Spaced Repetition Systems, we will make sure you are informed about who is collecting the information, how and why the information is being collected and the types of uses Spaced Repetition Systems will make of the information. At the time you provide your PII, Spaced Repetition Systems will notify you of your options regarding our use of your PII, including whether we will share it with outside companies. This Privacy Policy describes the types of other companies that may want to send you information about their products and services and therefore may want to share your PII, provided you have given Spaced Repetition Systems permission to do so. The Site may be linked to Internet web sites operated by other companies. Spaced Repetition Systems is not responsible for the privacy practices of web sites operated by third parties that are linked to our Site or for the privacy practices of third party or national Internet advertising companies. Once you leave a Spaced Repetition Systems Site via such a link or by clicking on an advertisement, Spaced Repetition Systems Privacy Policy no longer applies and you should check the applicable privacy policy of the third party or advertiser web site to determine how they will handle any PII they collect from you.

Spaced Repetition Systems will not use the PII you provide to us for purposes different from the purpose for which it was submitted, or share your PII with third parties, unless we obtain your permission.

Spaced Repetition Systems Use of Your PII

Spaced Repetition Systems will use your PII provided under this Privacy Policy in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. Provided you have given us permission, Spaced Repetition Systems may also share your PII with advertisers and business partners that are not affiliated with Spaced Repetition Systems, but would like to send you information about their products and services. However, you will always have the opportunity to instruct us not to share your information with third parties when PII is collected. Moreover, we will never share your credit card information with third parties except those Spaced Repetition Systems uses to perform tasks (such as order fulfillment and payment processing) required to complete purchases you make through the Site.

Spaced Repetition Systems employees, agents and contractors must have a legitimate business reason to obtain access to your PII. Spaced Repetition Systems may share your PII with outside contractors or agents who help us manage our information activities but they may only use your PII to provide Spaced Repetition Systems with a specific service and not for any other purpose.

Spaced Repetition Systems may also enter into agreements with outside companies that possess the technology that allows Spaced Repetition Systems to customize the advertising and marketing messages you receive on our Site. Your non-PII and click stream data about your activities on our Site may be shared with these companies so this customization may be accomplished. These companies will not share your information with any third party or use it for any other purpose. Anonymous click stream and demographic information may also be shared with Spaced Repetition Systems advertisers and business partners.

There may be instances when Spaced Repetition Systems may disclose PII without providing you with a choice in order to protect the legal rights of Spaced Repetition Systems; to protect the safety and security of visitors to our Site; to protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or to comply with the law or legal process. In addition, if Spaced Repetition Systems sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, Spaced Repetition Systems may transfer your PII to a third party as part of that transaction.

Security of PII

Spaced Repetition Systems uses commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard PII in its possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. In addition, Spaced Repetition Systems uses commercially reasonable methods to make sure that PII is accurate, up-to-date and appropriately complete. However, no security system is impenetrable. Spaced Repetition Systems cannot warrant or guarantee the security of its servers, nor can it guarantee that information that you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to Spaced Repetition Systems over the Internet.

How to Access or Correct Your PII

Whenever possible, Members and Subscribers may review the PII we maintain about them in our records. We will take reasonable steps to correct any PII a Member informs us of in writing is incorrect. If you are a Member, you can view, change and remove your PII, Member preferences and Your Profile information by logging into your account and editing your profile.

Spaced Repetition Systems will retain any record of your PII that is necessary to comply with applicable federal, state or local law. Keep in mind, moreover, that there will be residual information that will remain within Spaced Repetition Systems databases, access logs, and other records, which may or may not contain such PII. Even after removal of PII and User Content by you or Spaced Repetition Systems, PII and User Content may still be viewable in cached and archived pages or if another User has stored your User Content.

If you would like to communicate with us about this Privacy Policy or Spaced Repetition Systems collection or use of your PII, please contact Spaced Repetition Systems at gabe@spacedrepetition.com.

If you are dissatisfied with your paid account for any reason, you can receive a full refund by cancelling within 7 days of activation. Receiving the refund requires no further explanation on your part, though we would appreciate your feedback if you are willing.

Automatic Renewals

After your initial subscription period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically continue for an additional equivalent period at the same price (excluding any applicable taxes), unless you notify us otherwise in advance by email to gabe@spacedrepetition.com. By subscribing, you authorize Spaced Repetition Systems to charge your payment method(s) now and again at the beginning of each subsequent subscription period.

Private Cards

Users may elect to make their cards/decks “private” so that others cannot see them, or can elect to share their cards with only those they select. Because we prefer collaboration, all cards/decks that are created as private (or shared only with selected others) will become public 6 months after creation, or immediately after the user's account is cancelled, unless the creator of the cards specifically requests otherwise by contacting the site administrator at gabe@spacedrepetition.com.
