The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides alternatives for copyright owners who suspect content appearing on the Internet infringes the owner's rights per U.S. copyright law. If you believe that materials provided by School of Solutions infringe your copyright, you, or your agent may send to School of Solutions a notice requesting that the material removed or access to it be blocked. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that neglects to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon School of Solutions actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. If you believe a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed, the DMCA permits you to send to School of Solutions a counter-notice. All notices and counter-notices must meet the current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright for details.

School of Solutions cares about your privacy. For this reason, we collect and use personal information only as needed to deliver our products, services, websites, and mobile applications, and to communicate with you about the same, or as you have requested (collectively, our "Services"). Your personal information includes information, such as:
If you have questions about our practices or any of your rights described below, you may reach us at email@example.com.
What information we collect, how we collect it, and why
Much of what you likely consider personal information is collected directly from you when you:
However, we also collect additional information when delivering our Services to ensure necessary and optimal performance. These methods of collection may not be as evident to you, so we highlighted and explained a bit more about what these might be (as they vary from time to time):
Cookies and similar technologies on our websites and our mobile applications allow us to track your browsing behavior, links clicked, items purchased, your device type, and to collect various data, including analytics, about how you use and interact with our Services. These technologies automatically collect data when you use and interact with our Services, including metadata, log files, cookie/device IDs, page load time, server response time, and approximate location information to measure website performance and improve our systems, including optimizing DNS resolution, network routing and server configurations. Specifically, interactions with the features, content, and links (including those of third-parties, such as social media plugins) contained within the Services, Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type and settings, the date and time the Services used, information about browser configuration and plugins, language preferences and cookie data, information about devices accessing the Services, including the type of device, operating system, device settings, application IDs, unique device identifiers and error data is collected. All this allows us to provide you with more relevant product offerings, a better experience on our sites and mobile applications, and collecting, analyzing, and improving our Services' performance. We may also collect your location (IP address) so that we can personalize our Services.
Supplemented Data may be received about you from other sources, including publicly available databases or third parties from whom we have purchased data, in which case we may combine this data with information we already have about you so that we can update, expand and analyze the accuracy of our records, assess the qualifications of a candidate for employment, identify new customers, and provide products and services that may be of interest to you. If you provide us personal information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.
How we utilize information. We strongly believe in both minimizing the data we collect and limiting its use and purpose to only that (1) for which we have been given permission, (2) as necessary to deliver the Services you purchase or interact with, or (3) as we might be required or permitted for legal compliance or other lawful purposes:
Providing, improving, updating, and enhancing our Services. We collect various information relating to your purchase, use, and interactions with our Services. We utilize this information to:
Much of the data collected is aggregated or statistical data about how individuals use our Services and are not linked to any personal information.
Sharing with trusted third parties. We may share your personal information with affiliated companies within our corporate family, with third parties with which we have partnered to allow you to integrate their services into our Services, and with trusted third-party service providers as necessary for them to perform functions on our behalf, such as:
We will also disclose your information to third parties:
Communicating with you. We may contact you directly or through a third-party service provider regarding products or services you have signed up or purchased from us, such as necessary to deliver transactional or service-related communications. We may also contact you with offers for additional services we think you'll find valuable if you give us consent or allowed based upon legitimate interests. You don't need to provide consent as a condition to purchase our goods or services. These contacts may include:
Transfer of personal information abroad. If you utilize our Services from a country other than the country where our servers are located, your personal information may be transferred across international borders, which will only be done when the appropriate standard contractual clauses are in place.
Compliance with legal, regulatory, and law enforcement requests. We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (such as subpoena requests), to protect our property and rights or the property and rights of a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we consider to be illegal or unethical.
To the extent we are legally permitted to do so, we will take reasonable steps to notify you if we are required to provide your personal information to third parties as part of the legal process. We will also share your information to the extent necessary to comply with any ICANN, registry, or ccTLD rules, regulations, and policies when you register a domain name. For reasons critical to maintaining the security, stability, and resiliency of the Internet, this includes the transfer of domain name registration information to the underlying domain registry operator and escrow provider, and publication of that information as required by ICANN in the public WHOIS database or with other third parties that demonstrate a legitimate legal interest to such information.
How we secure, store, and retain your data. We follow generally accepted standards to store and protect the personal information we collect, both during transmission and once received and stored, including utilization of encryption.
We retain personal information only for as long as necessary to provide the Services you have requested and after that for a variety of legitimate legal or business purposes. These might include retention periods:
If you have any questions about the security or retention of your personal information, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How you can access, update, or delete your data.
If you request to delete your personal information and that data is necessary for the products or services you have purchased, the request will be honored only to the extent it is no longer required for any Services purchased or required for our legitimate business purposes or legal or contractual record keeping requirements.
If you are unable to access your Account Settings or our Trust Center, you may also contact us by one of the methods described in the "Contact Us" section below.
