Disclosure of Information to Third Parties
We may provide Non-Personal Data to third parties, where such information is combined with similar information of other users of our website. For example, if you are an employee of one of our retail partners, we might inform your head office regarding the number of their staff who visit our website, the success rate of their employees in our lessons, or the activities that visitors to our website engage in while on our website. Additional third parties to whom we may provide this information may include researchers and other similar parties.
We will not disclose your Personal Data to third parties beyond your employer unless you have consented to this disclosure or unless the third party is required to fulfil a service you have requested (in such circumstances, the third party is bound by similar data protection requirements). Any third party we disclose the information to will use it for the purposes of delivering the service in question unless you have agreed otherwise.
We will disclose your Personal Data if we believe in good faith that we are required to disclose it in order to comply with any applicable law, a summons, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, or other statutory requirement.
