Privacy Policy

1. OUR COMMITMENT TO YOUR PRIVACY

Success Training Institute (STI) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Higher Achievers Society, LLC and is the entity that primarily controls the Web Site. STI and its subsidiaries and affiliates are committed to respecting your privacy. This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) discloses our privacy practices and expresses our commitment to keeping you informed of the information we collect and how it is used. We ask that you take time to read it carefully. We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time to reflect new uses, rules, regulations or technologies that impact your privacy. We recommend that users review our Privacy Policy on a routine basis to view any changes. This Privacy Policy will be continuously assessed against new technologies and business practices. This Privacy Policy applies to and governs data collection and usage at www.skillsoft.com, including the content, features, and any microsites, blogs and discussion groups that are a part of www.simplysuccess.com (the “Web Site”). The Web Site includes certain pages hosted by third party service providers, which are branded to look like www.simplysuccess.com and collect personally identifiable information and perform other tasks on behalf of STI (“Branded Sites”). This Privacy Policy governs these Branded Sites unless indicated otherwise on the Branded Site. Please read this Privacy Policy in its entirety.

2. THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW IT IS USED

You make the decision whether or not to proceed with any activity that requests personally identifiable information, but please be aware that if you choose not to provide the information requested, you may not be able to complete certain transactions with STI.

Sometimes, such as when you register for a service, order a product or make other requests or inquiries, we will ask for specific information about you in order to provide that product or service to you or respond to your requests or inquiries. We may collect certain personally identifiable information such as contact information, including name, e-mail address, work and home telephone numbers, fax number and a physical postal address. We may also collect information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, past experience with STI products and services, detailed contact preferences or other personally identifiable information. We may use any information that we collect, including personally identifiable information, to tailor subsequent communications to you, including marketing and promotional communications, to administer and operate the Web Site and our business and to provide and continually improve STI offerings. We may also share information that we collect, including personally identifiable information, with resellers or other third parties in order to market STI products and/or services to you. We do, however, provide our users a choice as to whether or not they would like to receive marketing or promotional communications.

Users may from time to time receive up-to-date information on products and services via our e-mail newsletter. Users may opt-out at any time from receiving these communications.

We may also periodically conduct business and individual user surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve our products and services. Participation in such surveys is completely voluntary and you, therefore, have a choice whether or not to disclose this information.

Data you submit online may also be combined with other information you provide through other means of communication, such as postal mail.

As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, referring pages, date/time stamp and click stream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Web Site, to track users’ movements around the Web Site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically collected data to personally identifiable information.

Our Web Site includes social media features, such as the Facebook “Like” button Widgets and the “Share” button. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our Web Site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Web Site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

3. CHOICE

We may use your personally identifiable information for purposes not directly related to products and/or services you have requested or other requests or inquiries you have made, such as to send you e-mail communications, STI newsletter, information on new products or offers and information from STI partners unless you direct us not to do so by opting-out at the point where the information is collected. Additionally, you may opt-out from use of your personally identifiable information collected online for the purpose of sending such marketing or promotional communications at any time by going to our e-mail preferences page and sending an e-mail to information@simplysuccess.com or by following the unsubscribe instruction contained within each of the newsletters or promotional communications you receive.

We will retain your information for as long as needed for the purposes for which it was collected, and in accordance with our retention policies, as applicable. We will retain and use your information as appropriate to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

4. SHARING OF INFORMATION

Unless STI has your permission or is required by law, or except as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy, STI will not sell, rent or lease your personally identifiable information to others, except in order to provide you with the products and services you request. STI will only share the personally identifiable information you provide online with other STI affiliates, resellers or other marketers of STI’s products, STI partners and/or service providers who may be used to ship products, provide technical support, handle order processing, or otherwise act on STI’s behalf for the purpose of marketing and providing STI products and services, administering and operating the Web Site and our business and sending marketing and promotional communications. STI may also share your information with its affiliates so that they may provide you with information about their own products and services and for other marketing and promotional purposes.

Please remember that when you submit information to a discussion group or some other public or online forum, the information submitted will be deemed public information and will not be considered confidential or treated by STI as other personally identifiable information you specifically provide to STI, which is subject to this Privacy Policy. To request removal of your personally identifiable information from our blog or community forum, contact us at information@simplysucess.com. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personally identifiable information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.

We may share or disclose your personally identifiable information if such disclosure is necessary to: (a) comply with legal process (such as a court order) or other legal requirements of any governmental authority; (b) protect our rights or property; (c) protect the interest of users of the Web Site, other than you, or any other person; or (d) operate or conduct maintenance and repair of our services or equipment, as authorized by law.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, STI may transfer, sell or assign information concerning your use of this Web Site, including without limitation, personally identifiable information, to third parties, as a result of the sale, merger, consolidation, change in control, transfer of substantial assets, reorganization or liquidation of STI. In the event of such transfer, sale or assignment.

5. LINKS

STI may provide you with links to other websites that may be operated by companies not affiliated with STI. Please be aware that STI is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. STI does not endorse them or make any representations about them or any information, services, products or materials found on them. Linked websites may have their own privacy policies or notices, which we strongly suggest you review if you visit any linked websites. We are not responsible for the content of any websites that are not affiliated with ST, any use of those websites, or the privacy practices of those websites.

6. DATA TRANSFER AND SECURITY

We may transfer the personally identifiable information we collect about you to countries other than the country in which the information originally was collected. Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. When we transfer your information to other countries, we will protect that information as described in this Privacy Policy and in accordance with applicable law.

We will take steps intended to safeguard personally identifiable information stored on our systems from unauthorized access or disclosure. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online services, and you do so at your own risk.

7. NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES

STI reserves the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy. If we make a material change to this Privacy Policy that results in the use of personally identifiable information that is inconsistent in material respects with the practices described at the time of collection, we will notify you and provide you with the choice as to whether or not you will allow us to use your information in this different manner. In the event there is a material change in our privacy practices that does not affect user information already stored in our database, a notice will be posted on our Web Site notifying all users of the change.

8. CHILDREN

STI does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from users under the age of 13. Children under 13 should not send any information about themselves to STi. If a child under 13 submits information through any part of the Web Site, and STI becomes aware that the person submitting the information is a child, we will attempt to delete this information as soon as possible.

9. ACCEPTANCE OF PRIVACY POLICY

By using the Web Site, you signify your assent to our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not use our Web Site. Your continued use of this Web Site following posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.

10. CONTACTING US WITH COMMENTS AND CONCERNS
