In conjunction with these partners, we may send promotional announcements and/or serve web-based advertisements on their behalf, as permitted by law.

We may use information on an aggregated or anonymous basis. For example, we use ratings and consumption behavior, as well as commentary and reviews, on an aggregate or anonymous basis, to improve our recommendations to you as well as other users. Aggregated or anonymous information may be used for a variety purposes not explicitly set forth in this policy.

We do not authorize them to use or disclose your personal information except in connection with providing their services.
  • Promotional offers: We may offer joint promotions or programs that, in order for your participation, will require us to share your information with third parties. In fulfilling these types of promotions, we may share your name and other information in connection with fulfilling the incentive.

These plugins are operated by the social network themselves, and are subject to their terms of use and privacy policies. 21 University does not control how these social networks operate these plugins. You should read their terms of use and privacy policies before you use them.

Security

21 University uses reasonable administrative, technical, physical and managerial measures to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft and unauthorized access, use and modification. For example, we may utilize Secure Sockets Layering, an industry-standard protocol for certain of your transmissions to us, in order to encrypt certain personal information that you send to us through the registration and sign up process.

Unfortunately, no security system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the security of your information and cannot assume liability for improper access to it. By using our service, including our website and user interfaces, or providing information to us through any means, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the 21 University service.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account access information and for restricting access to your computer or device through which you access your 21 University account. Where possible, users of public or shared devices should log out at the completion of each visit. If you sell or return a computer or 21 University ready device, you should log-out and deactivate the device before doing so. If you do not maintain the security of your password or device, or fail to log out or deactivate your device, subsequent users may be able to access your account, including your personal information.

Other Websites, Platforms and Applications

The 21 University service may be provided through platforms or contain links to sites operated by third parties whose policies regarding the handling of information may differ from ours. For example, you may be able to access the 21 University service through platforms such as gaming systems, smart TVs, mobile devices, set top boxes and a number of other Internet connected devices. These websites and platforms have separate and independent privacy statements, notices and terms of use, which we recommend you read carefully. In addition, you may encounter third party applications that interact with the 21 University service. 21 University is not responsible for the information handling practices of these other websites and platforms.

Changes to This Policy

21 University may, from time to time, make changes to this Privacy Policy. Such revisions shall take effect immediately, although will only apply to existing members 30 days after posting (unless otherwise stated).

Transfer of Information

Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process information necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. Therefore, by using 21 University, you acknowledge and agree to the transfer of your information outside your country of residence to any country (including the United States) where we have facilities or engage Service Providers. You understand that the countries to which we may transfer information may not have as comprehensive a level of data protection as in your country, although your personal information will continue to be protected in accordance with the standards described in this policy.
