For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. 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.

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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Such as Wrodfence Security. This is to protect us and you from hackers, spam, and any malware.

Any and all additional information is kept private. Such as – but not limited to – lessons, groups, chats, texts, emails, video conference, teleport meetings, and any other software used for these lessons/classes/groups. We require all clients to agree to the same about the owners of this site in that our privacy is also kept private.

How we protect your data

We do our best to ensure you are always protected. However, we know and understand that things get in that we do not expect, but even then, we would do everything in our power to protect you the user from harm, that may occure from such unexpected breaches. In this instance, all information will be wiped from the server, reset, and accounted for. We would rather start over, then to see others who trust us, being harmed from foul-play.
