Your privacy is very important to us, and we value your trust by visiting our website. This policy explains what information we collect, how, and why we collect it when you visit our website, or when you use our Services. It also explains the specific ways we use and disclose that information. We take your privacy extremely seriously, and we never sell lists or email addresses.
These definitions should help you understand this policy. We provide online training that you may use to learn how to use certain software tools to build or manage your own website. When we say “Member,” we are referring to the person or entity that is registered with us to use the Services. When we say “you,” we are referring either to a Member or to some other person who visits our Website (“Visitors”). “Personal Information” means any information that identifies or can be used to identify you, directly or indirectly, including, but not limited to, first and last name, email address, or other demographic information.

Some visitors to SKILLS’WP’s website choose to interact with SKILLS’WP in ways that require SKILLS’WP to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SKILLS’WP gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at SKILLS’WP.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with SKILLS’WP are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, SKILLS’WP collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SKILLS’WP. SKILLS’WP does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
The IP address of visitors, user ID of logged in users, and username of login attempts are conditionally logged to check for malicious activity and to protect the site from specific kinds of attacks. Examples of conditions when logging occurs include login attempts, log out requests, requests for suspicious URLs, changes to site content, and password updates. This information is retained for 14 days.
When you register an account with us, we’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, email address, credit card/payment details and optional account information like username and password. We use this information to:

If you leave a comment on our website you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this website, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year.

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies.
Website Cookie Preference Tool: You can exercise your Website cookie preferences by visiting the TRUSTe preference center by clicking this link: https://preferences-mgr.truste.com/.
Disabling Most Interest Based Advertising: Most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of Interest Based Advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit https://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or https://www.youronlinechoices.com.
Mobile Advertising: You can opt out of having your mobile advertising identifiers used for certain types of Interest Based Advertising, including those performed by us, by accessing the settings in your Apple or Android mobile device and following the most recent published instructions. If you opt out, we will remove all data about you and no further data collection or tracking will occur. The random ID we (or our third party partners) had previously assigned to you will also be removed. This means that if at a later stage, you decide to opt-in, we will not be able to continue and track you using the same ID as before, and you will for all practical purposes be a new user to our system.
Do Not Track: Some Internet browsers – like Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari – include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals. Since uniform standards for “DNT” signals have not been adopted, our Websites do not currently process or respond to “DNT” signals. MailChimp takes privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard. To learn more about “DNT”, please visit All About Do Not Track.
SKILLS’WP may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. SKILLS’WP may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, SKILLS’WP does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described herein.
We and our third party partners may use technologies from time to time, like web beacons, pixels (or “clear gifs”) and other tracking technologies. These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Websites or, in the case of web beacons, opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Websites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to serve targeted advertisements to you and others like you, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of marketing campaigns. While you may not have the ability to specifically reject or disable these tracking technologies, in many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly; accordingly, in those instances, declining cookies will block or impair functioning of these technologies.
We have engaged one or more third party service providers to track and analyse both individualized usage and volume statistical information from interactions with our Websites. We also partner with one or more third parties (such as advertisers and ad networks) to display advertising on our Websites and/or to manage and serve advertising on other sites.
SKILLS’WP only discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on SKILLS’WP’s behalf or to provide services available at SKILLS’WP’s websites, and (ii) who have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using SKILLS’WP’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. SKILLS’WP will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, SKILLS’WP discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when SKILLS’WP believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SKILLS’WP, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an SKILLS’WP website and have supplied your email address, SKILLS’WP may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with SKILLS’WP and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via our contact form), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. SKILLS’WP takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
