What types of data are collected?
This article forms part of Werkey's Policies and Terms. For more details on these policies, click here.
We collect data directly from users, such as information you enter yourself, data about user participation in courses, and data from third party platforms with which you connect to a Werkey. We also collect some data automatically, such as information about the user's device and what parts of our Services the user interacts with or uses.
Data provided by the user
We may collect different data about you, or provided by you, depending on how you use the Services. Here are some examples to help you better understand the data we collect.
When you create an account and use the Services, including through a third party platform, we collect all data provided directly between them:
1. Account data
To use certain features (such as enrolling in a course), you need to create a user account. When you create or update your account, we collect and store the information that you provide, such as your email address, CPF, password, gender, and date of birth.
2. Profile data
The user can also choose to provide profile information such as a photo, a title, a link to websites, profiles on social media or other data. The user's profile data may be publicly viewed by others.
3. Shared content
Certain parts of the Services allow you to interact with other users or share content publicly, including by posting evaluations on a course page, questions or answers, sending messages to students or content providers, or posting photos or other work submitted by the user. This shared content may be viewed publicly by others depending on where it is posted.
4. Course data
When you enroll in a course, we collect some data, including what courses, tasks and quizzes you have started and completed, information exchanges with content providers (including instructors, platform administrators, and teaching assistants) and other students, and essays, answers to questions, and other items submitted to meet course requirements.
5. Data on student payments
When you make purchases, we collect some data about the purchase in question (such as your name, e-mail address, CPF or CNPJ) when necessary to process the order. You are responsible for providing certain payment and billing data directly to our payment processing partners, including your name, credit card information, billing address, and zip code. For security reasons, Werkey does not collect or store sensitive cardholder data, such as the complete credit card number or authentication data.
6. Content Provider or Affiliate Payment Data
7. Data on user accounts in other services
We may obtain certain information through user accounts on social networks or other online accounts if they are connected to the user account on Werkey. If the user connects to Werkey through Facebook or another third party platform or service, we request the user's permission so that we can access certain information about that other account. For example, depending on the platform or service, we may collect the user's name, profile picture, account ID number, access email address, location, physical location of the user's access devices, gender, birthday date, and list of the user's friends or contacts.
These platforms and services make information available to Werkey through their APIs. The information we receive depends on what information the user (through the privacy settings) or platform or service decides to provide us.
If you access or use our Services through a third party platform or service or click on third party links, the collection, use and sharing of data will also be subject to the privacy policies and other agreements of the respective third party.
8. Sweepstakes, promotions and surveys
9. Communications and support
