This document sets out the basis for which The Learna Ltd will process any personal data we collect from you.
What information is being collected and how is it used?
There are various sections of the website, for which we collect different information. What we collect and how this is used is as follows:
Cookies are information files that your web browser places on the hard drive of your computer when you visit a website. Cookies cannot damage user files, nor can they read information from a user's hard drive. Cookies are used to track visitor activities while at our site.

How do I disable cookies?
If you want to disable cookies you need to change your website browser settings to reject cookies. How to do this will depend on the browser you use.
What happens if I disable cookies?
This depends on which cookies you disable, but in general the site may not operate properly if cookies are switched off. If you only disable 3rd party cookies you will not be prevented from making purchases on this site. If you disable all cookies you will be unable to login / purchase using this site.
If you require further information about cookies, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) have a useful resource called what do I need to know about cookies?
Access to content and services on our website requires either registration alone or also with a subscription. You will know what information is being collected when you complete required details prior to submission (including which information is mandatory). Where you submit a response on our forum for publication, your chosen username will be published. We will use data collected to allow access to our website and fulfil any obligations to you (where these exist).
We will also use your data to monitor for any unauthorised use of our website, content or subscriptions to our content. We may also disclose your identity and contact details to any third party claiming material posted by you is defamatory or violates their intellectual property rights or right to privacy.
You will be given an opportunity to opt in or out (as applicable) from receiving marketing emails (and in other media) from Learna Ltd and third parties (via unsubscribe link in emails).
As you browse the website, we collect information about your use of the site including but not limited to traffic data and location data. Essentially this will normally be which pages you have visited, how long you stay online and where you are located. We will not be able to identify who you are from the information we store, but we will be able to identify where you are located.
What else do we collect when you use our website?
Each time you use the internet, an IP address is assigned to your computer via the internet service provider. This number may either be the same or different each time. Each time your computer requests information from our website, we log your IP address on our server and may log operating systems and browser types for system administration and to report aggregate information. We may use this in order to gather information about the website traffic and usage.
Whether you are a registered user or not, our web server collects certain information such as: (a) IP address; (b) host names; (c) domain name; (d) time and date information as requested; (e) the browser version and platform when it is requested, (f) a record of which pages have been requested.
If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence and use it to contact you in response and/or to update our records.
We may use all information to adhere to any legal requirements to disclose to third parties, enforce our legal rights, and protect against unauthorised access, use, activity and/or copying, either personally or via third party contractors and advisors. This may involve using your name and subscription details on a database with other publishers' data for detection purposes.
What else do we use personal information for?
Other than for fulfilling any obligations to you (where these exist), on some occasions we use the information provided to produce anonymised aggregate statistics in relation to pages being accessed and the demographics of our users. We may also use it to monitor usage patterns on the website in order to improve navigation and design features to help you get information more easily. In order to help us develop the website and our services, we may provide such aggregate information to third parties. The statistics, however, will not include any information that can be used to identify any individual. We may contact you to notify you about changes to our service.
How long do we keep the information we collect?
We keep your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil our obligations to you, protect our legal interests and undertake analysis of our website to assist you and future users.
To whom will information be disclosed?
Other than as expressly agreed by you or otherwise stated when data is collected or within this policy, we will not disclose your personal data to any third parties other than:
- our owners (where applicable), Licensors, contractors and advisors who must keep this data confidential;
- as required to enforce our legal rights (including property, safety, our customers or others);
- fraud protection and credit risk reduction;
- where our company or its assets (to which your data relates) are to be acquired by a new company, location data may be shared.
