1. Personal Information
When you enroll as a student or subscriber (“learner”) on our site or related courses, as part of the enrolling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name and email address.
We may send you emails about our site and related course(s), registration, course content, your course progress, or other updates. We may also use your email to inform you about course changes, survey your usage, or collect your opinion.
When you provide us with personal information to become a learner on our site, make a purchase, or participate in the course, you imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

If, after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you and/or for the continued collection, use, or disclosure of your information at any time by contacting us at [email protected] or mailing us at:

Our course and site are hosted by Learnworlds. They provide us with an online course creation platform that allows us to sell our products/services to you.
Your data is stored through Learnworlds data storage, databases, and the general Learnworlds application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you make a purchase on our site, we use a third-party payment processor such as Stripe or PayPal. Payments are encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by the PCI-DSS, as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our site, related courses, and service providers.
6. Third-Party Services
In general, our third-party providers will only collect, use, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies with respect to the information that we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies, so you can understand how your personal information will be handled by these providers.
Certain providers may be located in or have facilities in a different jurisdiction than you or us. If you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located. As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
When you click on links on our course site, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
We collect cookies or similar tracking technologies. This means that our website’s server transfers information to your computer. This information can be used to track your session on our website. Cookies may also be used to customize our website content for you as an individual.

We may also use automated tracking methods on our websites, in communications with you, and in our products and services to measure performance and engagement. Please note that because there is no consistent industry understanding of how to respond to “Do Not Track” signals, we do not alter our data collection and usage practices when we detect such a signal from your browser.
Web analysis tools:
We may use web analysis tools that are built into the Buildwithbuffie.com website to measure and collect anonymous session information.
