If you are in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), you may have additional data rights. Please refer to the “EU Data Rights” section below. For purposes of the GDPR, TKMG Academy is the “controller” of your Personal Information, as defined below.
We collect certain information about you when you access or use the Services. This information (“Personal Information”) may personally identify you or have the potential to personally identify you. This section describes the Personal Information we collect and the sources of that information.
Information We Collect
- Identifiers: We may collect your full name, email address, physical address, phone number, IP Address, device ID, or other similar identifiers. We may also collect any other Personal Information that you voluntarily provide to us, such as social media identifiers, language preference, or website URL.
- Internet or Other Electronic Network Activity Information: We may collect information regarding your interaction with the Services, including time and geolocation data, pages visited, links clicked, emails opened, language preferences, and the pages that led or referred you to our Services. We may also collect information automatically from your device, such as device type, operating system and Internet browser type, screen resolution, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, language, plug-ins, and add-ons. When we send you emails, we also collect information that helps us measure the performance of our email campaigns, including whether you received the email, opened the email, and whether you clicked on any links contained in the email.
- Geolocation Data: We may collect your physical location or infer your physical location based on your IP address, mailing address, or other network or voluntarily-provided information.
- Commercial Information: We collect information about the products or services you have purchase, obtained, or considered from us, including past order information and whether you have attended any of our live seminars. We also collect information about which of our courses you complete and any feedback or suggestions you voluntarily provide to us. (For clarification, “complete” means you scored 70% or higher on the course evaluation.)
- Payment Information: In order to process your order, we collect credit card information or other payment information.
- Professional or Employment-related Information: We may collect job-related information from you, such as your title, manager, company, or website. You provide this Personal Information in your TKMG Academy account profile, through your voluntary communications with us, by providing contact or payment information (such as your email address or company credit card), or by responding to an email, newsletter, or survey.
Information We Do Not Collect
- When you use or access the Services, we do not collect sensitive personal information or “special-category data,” such as information about your racial or ethnic origin, religion, gender, or medical conditions. We also do not collect sensitive identifiers, such as social security numbers or passport numbers.
- We do not knowingly or intentionally collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. If we discover that we have collected information about a child, we delete the information as soon as possible.
You may refuse to provide, or request that we delete, certain categories of Personal Information we have about you. However, if our collection of the Personal Information is necessary for you to access or use the Services, we may be unable to provide the Services to you.
- You provide some Personal Information to us directly. For example, you provide Identifiers and Payment Information to purchase a course. You also need to provide Identifiers such as email address or full name to subscribe to our newsletter or contact us.
- Your employer or organization may provide some Personal Information to us. For example, if your employer purchases a group license or team subscription, your employer will be required to provide us with your name and email address so we can issue your personal access code. In that case, we may also infer information about your employer, job function, or other job-related information.
- Third parties or public sources may provide us with certain Personal Information. For example, we may collect Personal Information from publicly accessible social media profiles and posts, private third parties, law enforcement, or public sources, to the extent we deem it necessary to do so for the purposes described in the Data Uses section below.
- We may generate information about you based on our relationship with you, such as product preferences, or which courses you have completed.
Cookies and Tracking Technologies
This section describes the legal bases upon which, and the purposes for which, we process your Personal Information. We process your Personal Information:
- For legitimate business interests which outweigh the general privacy rights of individual data subjects. This includes but is not limited to analyzing and improving our Services and business operations; ensuring the security and availability of the Services; and monitoring use of the Services to prevent fraud or abuse. For example, we may use your feedback to improve our course content or course materials.
- To comply with a legal obligation or requirement. We use and process your Personal Information when we believe doing so is necessary to comply with laws and regulations, pursuant to a judicial authorization, or to exercise or defend our legal rights or those of a third party.
- With your consent. We process your Personal Information when we have obtained your express, affirmative consent. For example, we may ask for your consent to use your Personal Information to send you certain marketing communications.
If we need to process your Personal Information for a purpose other than that for which the information was initially collected, we will provide you with information about that other purpose before we further process your Personal Information.
Data Sharing and Disclosure
We may share your Personal Information with third parties:
- With your consent. We share your Personal Information if you affirmatively consent to it. If we are legally obligated to obtain your consent prior to sharing your Personal Information, we notify you of the specific purpose for which we are obtaining your consent, and we do not share beyond that purpose without notifying you of and obtaining additional consent for further disclosure.
- For legal disclosure. We may share your information with third parties when we reasonably believe disclosure is required or permitted in order to comply with a subpoena, court order or other applicable law, regulation or legal process.
- To protect us or others. We may share your information to the extent we believe that sharing such information is necessary to protect the rights, property, or safety of us, our products or services, our customers, or others.
- As aggregate information. We may share certain aggregated, non-personally identifying information internally or with others for purposes of research, reporting, and benchmarking.
- As a result of merger or sale of our business. We may share Personal Information if we are involved in a merger, sale, financing, liquidation, bankruptcy or acquisition of corporate entities or business units.
We do not sell any Personal Information for any reason.

Your request must include: your name, your email and mailing address, sufficient information for us to verify your identity, and the specific categories or pieces of Personal Information that are the subject of your request. We may request additional information from you if we are unable to verify your identity or locate the records in your request. We will consider and act upon any such requests in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
While no online service is 100% secure, we work to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so. We monitor our Services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks, and we use a variety of security technologies and organizational procedures to help protect your personal data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. We and our payment processing service providers maintain credit card security handling procedures that comply with PCI DSS. We also limit access to your Personal Information to those personnel with a need to know in order to perform job duties for us.
