This Learners Edge, LLC Privacy Policy explains our practices, defines our users’ (“you” or “your”) privacy options, and describes how your information is collected and used by Learners Edge, LLC (“we,” “us,” “our,” or “Learners Edge”).

By using the Learners Edge website or any of our applications, products, services, features, tools, or resources, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use.

This Privacy Policy, along with our Terms of Use, governs your use of the Learners Edge website at (“Site”), our online portal, our mobile application and any information we may access through social media platforms, including but not limited to, Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Twitter.

Any interaction on social media websites is governed by the terms of use and privacy policy of the particular platform. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these third-party offerings.

We may provide user information to third-party service providers or vendors for purposes of, including without limitation, initiating direct marketing programs on our behalf, data tracking, maintenance or development of our System, development of online products, services, or customer service, or new product development, or other contracted promotional opportunities provided to our users.

We may also disclose your information to a third party as part of reorganization or a sale of the assets of Learners Edge, or its subsidiaries or divisions.  Any third party to which Learners Edge transfers or sells the System or related assets will have the right to continue to use the personal and other information that you provide to us.

Behavioral Advertising

We may also use third-party vendors, such as Google Analytics, to advertise to our users online. These third-party vendors may display Learners Edge product advertisements on other websites based on your internet usage.

How is User Information Protected?

We maintain administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for all user information collected in our System. All information provided to Learners Edge is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our Site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of Learners Edge. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.

How Can Users Limit Information Collected? 

By providing information to us or using our System, you are consenting to our use of your data as outlined in this Privacy Policy. 

While we work hard to use and disclose our users’ personal information only for the purposes identified above, you can choose not to provide personal information or limit the personal information obtained by us as follows: 

  • You may have your contact information removed from our marketing lists to inform users of new or relevant products, services, and special offers by clicking on the unsubscribe link in any communication received from us, or by emailing us;
  • You may limit the collection of “cookies” through your browser settings. However, this may disable our ability to provide you with the most relevant products or information regarding the System; and
  • You may limit the ability of Google Analytics to track your online activity, as outlined in the “Behavioral Advertising” section.

Children's Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance

If you are a resident of the state of California, the following rights are available to you under the California Consumer Privacy Act.

Right to access. You have the right to request that we disclose the categories of personal information collected, the categories of sources from which personal information is collected, the business or commercial purpose for collection, the categories of third parties with which we share personal information, and the specific pieces of personal information that we have about you. You also have the right to request that we provide your personal information to you in a readily useable format.

Right to request deletion. You have the right to request that we delete personal information that we collected from you. Note, however, that certain requests to delete personal information may be denied if we are required or authorized to retain the information as a matter of law, the information is necessary for detecting security incidents, exercising free speech, protecting or defending against legal claims, or for internal uses reasonably aligned with consumer expectations, including, but not limited to, to provide a customer requested product or service. Historical transactional records cannot be deleted.

Right to non-discrimination. You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by Learners Edge for exercising these privacy rights. We do not offer financial incentives related to the provision of data.

Authorized agent. You have the right to designate an authorized agent to make these requests on your behalf. To exercise any of these rights, please e-mail us at To protect your privacy, you will be required to provide authenticating information prior to making changes or gaining access to your information. We will respond to inquiries, requests to review, and change requests to personal information within forty-five (45) days.

Sales of Personal Information. We do not sell your personal information.

Opt-Out Policy. Learners Edge has adopted a policy of not sharing your personal information with our affiliates for their direct marketing purposes if you request that we do not do so (the “Opt-Out Policy”). You may make such a request by sending us an e-mail at When contacting us, please indicate your name, address, e-mail address, and what personal information you do not want us to share with our affiliates for their direct marketing purposes. Please note that there is no charge for controlling the sharing of your personal information or for processing this request.

Notice of Financial Incentive. This Notice of Financial Incentive includes an explanation of financial incentives we may offer California residents when they provide us with personal information. Those incentives are reasonably related to the information’s value, as permitted by the CCPA. The material aspects of any financial incentive will be explained and described when you sign up. Your participation in these programs is optional. If you choose to participate, you may withdraw at any time by contacting us at

The financial incentives offered by Learners Edge from time to time in exchange for personal information are commonly percentage/promotional discount codes to be applied to a single purchase (typically in exchange for an email address or for joining a member rewards program). The discounts may result in a range of savings to the consumer, depending on the details of the purchase.

Incentives, including percentage/promotional discounts, are not directly tied to, or exclusively based upon, a set value of any individual element of consumer data, but are reasonably based in good faith on the following considerations:

  • Some consumers first experience our brand online and offering an incentive provides a unique opportunity for them to explore our products.
  • Some of our marketing and advertising activities are done online and email communications are a key part of reaching existing and potential consumers in a manner which they both expect and that allows for them to exercise choices about how or whether or not to be contacted.
  • Discounts may also be affected by factors such as performance targets, geographic location, seasonality, and market trends.
