Like most website operators, FunctorHub OÜ 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. FunctorHub OÜ's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how FunctorHub OÜ's visitors use its website. From time to time, FunctorHub OÜ may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
FunctorHub OÜ also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, and usage of the site by logged-in students such as lectures viewed and videos downloaded. This information is used to identify students that violate the terms of service. FunctorHub OÜ does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to FunctorHub OÜ's websites choose to interact with FunctorHub OÜ in ways that require FunctorHub OÜ to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that FunctorHub OÜ gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask students who enroll in our courses to provide a username and email address. In each case, FunctorHub OÜ collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with FunctorHub OÜ. FunctorHub OÜ does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
FunctorHub OÜ may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, FunctorHub OÜ may reveal how many students a particular course or lecture has enrolled. However, FunctorHub OÜ does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
FunctorHub OÜ discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on FunctorHub OÜ's behalf or to provide services available at FunctorHub OÜ's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others – this restriction does not apply to sponsors as described below. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using FunctorHub OÜ's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
FunctorHub OÜ will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone, with the exception that information pertaining to sponsored students, who explicitly request free enrollment in sponsored course(s) of their choosing, will be shared with sponsor(s). FunctorHub OÜ does not have any influence over how sponsors use data about sponsored students. Sponsors are clearly identified during the enrollment process, and students can opt to pay for a course if they do not wish their personal information to be shared with a sponsor. Just because a course might have sponsor(s) does not mean that information about all students enrolled in that course is shared with the sponsor(s) – only information about students that explicitly request sponsorship will be shared with sponsors. A student's sponsorship cannot be withdrawn; once a student explicitly requests enrollment in a sponsored course, their information is immediately communicated to the sponsor(s).
Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Micronautics Research Corporation discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when FunctorHub OÜ believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of FunctorHub OÜ, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a FunctorHub OÜ website and have supplied your email address, FunctorHub OÜ may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with FunctorHub OÜ and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it as is or in a modified form in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. FunctorHub OÜ takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
