Who we are
Welcome to Fidel Academy, a flexible LMS for anyone at any time. Your privacy is critically important to us. We take online privacy seriously and we respect the concerns of our community users. In this policy, we describe our privacy practices with regard to the information we collect through our website and affiliated sites to help you make informed decisions about how you share information when you visit or use the site.
Description of our service
At Fidel Academy we aim to provide an open opportunity for high qualified instructors who are capable of providing a useful valuable educational content and skills to share it with lifetime learners from all over the world.
We reserve the right to refuse to provide the Service to any person for any reason and/or to discontinue the Service in whole or in part at any time, with or without prior notice.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When you sign up to our site and become a member, when you choose to share your knowledge or want to gain skills and knowledge from the instructors, we ask for your personal data. This refers to the information you provide (names, phone numbers, and email) in order for us to identify or contact you.
If you are a student, we need your email address, name, and maybe your phone number in order to send you messages or provide you with additional service and give them out to the instructor who is providing your course so that they can give you guidance when you need help with the specific course you are taking.
But we do not give your details to anyone else except your instructor.
When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
Information about cookies
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
How long do we retain your data?
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights do you have over your data?
If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
