The Services are controlled and operated by Beyond Limits Academy, Inc., a California corporation. Subject to our obligations (if any) under our Terms of Use, we may limit the availability of the Services, in whole or in part, to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction we choose, at any time in our sole discretion.

I. INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICES

Through the Services, you will have the opportunity to sign up for healthy technology use courses, be a part of a support community, and access valuable content. 

Members can engage in a full range of activities on our Services,  such as, taking courses, signing up for a newsletter that provide on-going communication and content related to healthy technology use, viewing live Facebook and Instagram video content, participating in question and answer sessions, and more.

A. Personal Information

In this Policy, when we use the term "Personal Information", we mean any information that can be used to identify (directly or indirectly) or contact a specific individual, such as the individual's name, postal address, email address, telephone number, or online identifier. We collect different types of Personal Information depending on whether you are a Non-Member or a Member, and what type of Member you are, as explained below, to provide our Services and carry out legitimate interests.

All Visitors: Visitors to the Services may register and opt-in to receive Beyond Limits Academy email newsletters by providing their email address and zip code. Please note that our newsletters are not currently available to any Members under the age of 18. If you are a Member or visitor who is under 18 you should not attempt to sign-up for our newsletters. 

We also may collect Personal Information through surveys or questionnaires. Your participation in surveys and questionnaires is entirely voluntary.

Adult Members: If you wish to become a Member, you must provide us with certain Personal Information as part of the registration process, including, for example, name, email address, school information (for educators), password and age range. We additionally ask for zip code or country of residence. 

If you are an adult Member, you may also optionally choose to provide us with information about your children such as their ages and names so we can personalize your experience on the Services and within our email newsletters.

Members will also need to provide payment information, including name, email address, and billing address. Beyond Limits Academy receives address information; all other payment information is processed by a third party payment provider and not by Beyond Limits Academy. See Section B.  Collection of Information by Our Service Providers for more information.

For adult members, your first name and the first initial of your last name will be displayed on your public user profile (“Profile”) page and next to any reviews or comments that you post on our Site. You have the option to not display your name and we will instead display your screen name which can be a pseudonym of your choice. Since the screen name is viewable by others, we suggest that you NOT use your real name for your screen name or your password, in order to protect your privacy.

Teen Members: If the Member is a teenager under the age of 18 please see the Teen Privacy Policy located at www.thebeyondlimitsway.com/teen_privacy

If you decide that you no longer want to be a Member, you can delete your account at any time. To delete your account, login to your account, visit your Account Settings page, and then click the "Close my Account" link located towards the bottom of the page. Once you delete your account, all of your Personal Information stored in your account and Profile on our site will be removed and any reviews or comments you posted will remain on the site but the author name will switch to "anonymous" so your name will no longer be connected with your content (unless you have chosen to include your Personal Information in that content itself – in which we recommend you request that we remove all content associated with your account). If you wish to delete your reviews or comments you may do so before you delete your account. Or, you can contact us at hello@thebeyondlimitsway.com and request that we delete your content (including reviews) and account for you. 

Alternatively, if you decide that you would like your posted reviews or comments deleted from our Services, you can do this at any time by logging into your account, viewing the review or comment, and clicking the "delete" button. You can also send us an email at hello@thebeyondlimitsway.com with your screen name, date of submitted review or comment, and title of media type that was reviewed. Please note that your request or deletion does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information, as, for example, some of your content may have been reposted by another user.  PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE USE BY OTHERS OF ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU DISCLOSE IN YOUR PROFILE OR ON PUBLIC-FACING AREAS OF THE SERVICES.

We may receive your Personal Information from other sources, such as Beyond Limits Academy events, Beyond Limits Academy education partners, activity on Beyond Limits Academy social media platforms, and public databases.

B. Collection of Information by Our Service Providers

We use third-party service providers ("Payment Services"), to handle Membership subscriptions and other payment transactions submitted to our Services. If you wish to make a payment, you will be directed to a webpage that is hosted by a Payment Service (or its service providers) and not by us (such page, a "Payment Service Page"). Any Personal Information that you provide through a Payment Service Page will be collected directly by a Payment Service rather than by us, and will be subject to that Payment Service's privacy policy rather than this Policy. We have no control over, and shall not be responsible for, a Payment Service's use of information collected through a Payment Service Page. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS POLICY DOES NOT ADDRESS THE COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION THROUGH ANY PAYMENT SERVICE PAGE OR THE PRIVACY OR INFORMATION PRACTICES OF THE PAYMENT SERVICES.

C. Cookies and Other Technologies

For information about cookies and similar other technologies, what they do, and how to disable the non-necessary ones, please refer to our full Cookie Policy.  By agreeing to this Agreement you also agree to the Cookie Policy.

Certain information, like aggregated information or high-level location information, such as the browser language and country during the user session, is treated as non-personal information unless applicable law requires otherwise. We may use or disclose such information for any purpose. For instance, we may compile and share aggregate data about the geographic locations or other demographics of our Members, provided that this information does not personally identify any of these Members.

Third-Party Service Providers. We work with third-parties who provide services such as data analysis, payment or donation processing, order fulfillment, infrastructure provision, information technology services, content personalization, email delivery services, and market research or third-parties who provide other services to help improve or operate our Services. We may share Personal Information about you with third-parties solely for the purpose of enabling them to provide these services to us. These service providers are given access to Personal Information needed to perform their functions, but are restricted from using the Personal Information for purposes other than providing services for us. When we engage a third-party who will need to access and process your Personal Information as part of their services, we ascertain that the third-party is capable and obligated to provide at least the same level of data privacy and protection as we hold ourselves to.  Our third-parties are required to notify us if they determine they can no longer meet the expected level of data privacy and protection, and we monitor for compliance to our data protection terms based on the nature of the services being provided.

Law Enforcement; Emergencies; Compliance. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Policy to the contrary, we reserve the right to use your Personal Information, and to disclose it to others, as we believe to be necessary or appropriate: (a) under a requirement of applicable law, (b) to comply with legal process, (c) to respond to governmental requests, (d) to enforce our Terms of Service, (e) to protect our operations, (f) for assistance in fraud detection and prevention; (g) to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of Beyond Limits Academy, you or others, (h) to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain, and (i) in connection with a disposition of all or a substantial portion of our business, assets or stock, such as the sale of the Site or Services, a merger, consolidation, reorganization, joint venture, assignment, or bankruptcy or similar proceedings.

Personal Information about you may be transferred, stored, and processed by us or the third-parties we work with in countries whose data protection laws and regulations may be different to those of your country. We allow transfers of Personal Information made between countries or regions in a fashion that complies with applicable law.

IV. HOW LONG WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We keep your Personal Information only for as long as it is warranted to provide our Services, fulfill our commitments to you, and/or adhere to legal or regulatory requirements. If you are a Member or a donor, we keep your Personal Information for the duration of our relationship. Certain Personal Information may be kept and archived for longer though, as required for recordkeeping purposes or backing up Services’ data for example. When Personal Information is expired, or is no longer needed and does not have to be retained, we may return, delete, destroy, or anonymize it, depending on what method is systematically and procedurally possible, most secure, and what our related retention commitments are.  

V. IMPORTANT DISCLOSURES, PRACTICES AND CONTACT INFORMATION

We use Google Analytics, Kajabi, and Facebook to collect certain internet log information and the details of the behavior patterns of people who visit the Site.  We configure Google Analytics to avoid collecting any information which could directly identify a person.

What is our “legal basis” for processing your Personal Data?  In respect of each of the purposes for which we use your Personal Data, the GDPR requires us to have a “legal basis” for that use. Most commonly, we will rely on one of the following legal bases: 

  • Where we need to perform a contract that we are about to enter into or have entered into with you (“Contractual Necessity”).
  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests (“Legitimate Interests”). More detail about the specific legitimate interests pursued in respect of each Purpose we use your Personal Data for is set out in the table below.
  • Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation (“Compliance with Law”).
  • Where we have your specific consent to carry out the processing for the Purpose in question (“Consent”).

Legitimate Interests. 

It is in our legitimate interests to better understand: our user-base, how to improve our Services, whether or not to develop new Services (and if so how), and the areas in which we do business generally.

 

Purpose limitation. We will only use your Personal Data for the purposes for which we collected it as listed above unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.  If we need to use your Personal Data for an unrelated purpose, we will update this Privacy Policy and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so. Please note that we may process your Personal Data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law (including the GDPR).

What happens when you do not provide necessary Personal Data or you withdraw consent? Where we need to process your Personal Data either to comply with law, or to perform the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you.  Similarly, if we rely on your consent to process your Personal Data, you are entitled to withdraw your consent, but if you do, we may not be able to provide certain services or features to you.  We will keep you informed of when your access to service or features depends on your consent. 

Our newsletters. European Individuals who are Adult Members, and other European Individuals over the age of 18, can opt-in to receive our newsletters.  Please note, however, that you may continue to receive ‘service-related’ and other non-marketing emails from us, including notices of any updates to our Terms of Use or this Policy.

Payment and Donation Processing. As noted above, your Payment Data is provided directly to Payment Services via their Payment Service Pages that we direct you to. When processing payments and donations on our behalf, Payment Services typically act as our ‘processor’ in respect of European Users’ Payment Data – essentially, this means that they only process your Payment Data for this limited purpose. However, Payment Services may also have their own legal and regulatory obligations that might require them to use your Payment Data for their own compliance-related purposes (e.g., security and fraud prevention) – THIS POLICY DOES NOT ADDRESS PAYMENT SERVICES’ PROCESSING OF PAYMENT DATA FOR SUCH INDEPENDENTLY-DETERMINED PURPOSES, WHICH WILL BE SUBJECT TO THAT PAYMENT SERVICE'S PRIVACY POLICY RATHER THAN THIS POLICY.

International transfers. We are headquartered in the United States. The Personal Data information that we collect from and about you will be stored and processed in the United States and may be stored and processed in other countries outside of Europe. However, it is our policy to ensure that adequate contractual or other safeguards are applied to Personal Data transferred outside of the European Union where required by European data protection law.  If you have questions about the safeguards applied to your Personal Data, you may contact us at hello@thebeyondlimitsway.com
