Consent

In some cases, we process personal data based on the consent you expressly grant to us. When we process personal data based on your consent, we indicate that to you at the time of collection.

International Data Transfers

The Resco Academy platform is hosted on a server in Germany. Backups are stored in data centers within the European Economic Area.

Google Analytics

The information generated by the cookies (e.g., your Client ID and your IP address) about your use of Resco Academy is transferred to a Google server in the United States.

We have taken reasonable precautions to protect your personal data. We have configured Google Analytics to pseudonymize your IP address. That means Google will truncate your IP address as soon as they receive it and before it is stored. The IP address identified from your browser by Google Analytics will not be merged with other data collected by Google. Google will use this information to analyze your use of Resco Academy, and to compile statistical reports on Resco Academy activities.

From what sources do we obtain your personal data?

Resco obtains your personal data directly from you.

Personal data generated by us

In relation with our usage of Google analytics, we generate a Client ID. The Client ID identifies your browser-device pair and can in rare cases be used to identify you. The client ID is generated only in case you have provided explicit consent for the usage of statistical cookies.

You can revoke consent using our Cookie Consent Manager.

Automated decision making and profiling

Resco Academy does NOT make automated decisions nor profiling with legal or similar significant effect on you.

Personal data from Children

Resco Academy is not directed at children. We do not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of 16 unless (a) we have obtained consent from a parent or guardian, (b) such collection is subject to a separate agreement with us or (c) the visit by a child under the age of 16 is unsolicited or incidental. If you are a parent or guardian and believe your child has provided us with personal data without your consent, please contact us by using the information in the “How to contact us” section below and we will take steps to delete their personal data from our systems.

Security of your personal data

We have implemented appropriate technical, organizational, and physical controls to protect your personal data against unauthorized processing and against accidental loss, damage, or destruction.

You are responsible for choosing a secure password when we ask you to set up a password to access Resco Academy. You should keep this password confidential, and you should choose a password that you do not use on any other site. You should not share your password with anyone else, including anyone who works for us.

Unfortunately, sending any information, including personal data, via the internet is not completely secure. We will do our best to protect your personal data once it is with us. Our servers promote secure transport protocols. However, we cannot ultimately guarantee the security of any personal data sent to our site while still in transit, and you provide it at your own risk.

What are your rights regarding the personal data we hold about you?

You have several rights regarding the personal data that we hold about you and you can contact us regarding the following rights in relation to your personal data:

  • You have the right to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you.

  • Where applicable, you may also have a right to receive a machine-readable copy of your personal data.
  • You also have the right to ask us to delete your personal data or restrict how it is used, consistent with GDPR. There may be exceptions to the right of erasure for specific legal reasons which, if applicable, we will set out for you in the response to your request.

  • Where you have provided us with consent to use your personal data, you can withdraw this at any time.

We will let you know if we need longer than one month to respond. You will not have to pay a fee to obtain a copy of your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive.
