THE SHORT VERSION
At Teamed for Learning we care about your privacy. We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties. Other users are only able to see the username you provide to the website. The extent of identity information you want to provide is fully up to your discretion. We do not disclose it to 3rd parties except as required to provide you with the relevant services of the Site, meaning – to allow you to buy and pay for products and withdraw your earnings (this information is required by credit card processors / payment gateways and are not shared with other users).
We collect information that you provide us or voluntarily share with other users, and also some general technical information that is automatically gathered by our systems, such as IP address, browser information and cookies to enable you to have a better user experience and a more personalized browsing experience.
Information that you provide us in the process of the registration will remain private and secure – including your contact information.
Information that you choose to publish on the site (photos, videos, text, music, reviews, deliveries) – is no longer private, just like any information you publish online.
Technical information that is gathered by our systems, or third party systems, automatically may be used for Site operation, optimization, analytics, content promotion and enhancement of user experience. We may use your information to contact you – to provide notices related to your activities, or offer you promotions and general updates, but we will not let any other person, including sellers and buyers, contact you, other than through your user login.
THE LONGER VERSION

We may also collect supplemental information obtained from third parties such as demographic and navigation data.
Once you register, your username and additional information regarding your services is made public and is visible to all Users of the Site.

How do we collect Information?
How do we use the Information collected?
We retain information as long as it is necessary and relevant for our operations. In addition, we may retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with the law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigation, enforce our Site terms and take other actions permitted by law.
To the extent a Buyer or Teammate provides Confidential Information to the other, the recipient will protect the secrecy of the discloser’s Confidential Information with the same degree of care as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information, but in no event with less than due care, and will: (a) not disclose or permit others to disclose another’s Confidential Information to anyone without first obtaining the express written consent of the owner of the Confidential Information; (b) not use or permit the use of another’s Confidential Information, except as necessary for the performance of Teammate Services (including, without limitation, the storage or transmission of Confidential Information on or through the Site for use by Teammate); and (c) limit access to another’s Confidential Information to its personnel who need to know such information for the performance of Teammate Services. A disclosure of information will be immune from prosecution or civil action under the Defend Trade Secrets Act, 18 U.S.C. section 1832, if it: (A) is made (i) in confidence to a Federal, State, or local government official, either directly or indirectly, or to an attorney; and (ii) solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law; or (B) is made in a complaint or other document filed in a lawsuit or other proceeding, if such filing is made under seal.
If and when Confidential Information is no longer needed for the performance of the Teammate Services for a Services Contract or at Buyer’s or Teammate’s written request (which may be made at any time at Buyer’s or Teammate’s sole discretion), the party that received Confidential Information, will, at its expense, promptly destroy or return the disclosing party’s Confidential Information and any copies thereof contained in or on its premises, systems, or any other equipment otherwise under its control. The party that received Confidential Information agrees to provide written certification to the party disclosing the Confidential Information of compliance with this subsection within ten days after the receipt of disclosing party’s written request for such certification.
Without limiting the Confidentiality section, Buyer, Teammate, and Teamed for Learning will not publish, or cause to be published, any other party’s Confidential Information or Work Product, except as may be necessary for performance of Teammate Services for a Services Contract.
