We respect your privacy and want you to know how we handle the information we receive via our website and through our online application (“Watershed”).
Information We Collect
We maintain all user-submitted data required for proper operation of Watershed. This data is collected to deliver and improve the services that we offer and includes the tracking data generated by learners experiencing their learning activities (such as quiz scores, time spent in training and other learning activities.) If you sign up for a free Watershed account you are not required to enter a credit card until you upgrade to a paid plan. Users of paid plans may be required to enter their credit card number. We use a third-party intermediary to manage credit card processing. This intermediary is not permitted to store, retain or use your billing information except for the sole purpose of credit card processing on our behalf.
Cookies and Tracking Technologies
Our Sites, application services and related marketing emails may use session and persistent cookies. The cookies placed by our server are readable only by us, and cookies cannot access, read or modify any other data on your computer. We may use web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about your usage of our Sites and interaction with emails from us. For example, we may place web beacons in marketing emails that notify us when you click on a link in the email that directs you to our Sites, in order to improve our Sites and email communications.
Our Sites may contain links to other websites including share and/or "like" buttons. These other websites, services and applications may set their own cookies on users’ computers, collect data or solicit personal information. You should refer to their privacy policies to understand how your information may be collected and/or used by them.
We use preference cookies to collect information about your choices and preferences on our Sites and application services, and to allow us to remember language or other local settings and customize our Sites and application services accordingly.
We also use analytics cookies to collect information about your use of our Sites and our application services, and to enable us to improve the way our Sites work. For example, analytics cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on our Sites and application services, help us record any difficulties you have with our Sites and application services, and show us whether our advertising is effective or not. This allows us to see the overall patterns of usage on our Sites and application services, rather than the usage of a single person. We use the information to analyze site traffic, but we do not examine this information for individually identifying information.
We use Remarketing with Google Analytics to advertise online. Third party vendors, including Google, may show our ads on sites across the internet.
We, and third party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on someone's past visits to our Sites. Remarketing cookies used by us expire after 30 days. To opt out of Remarketing or to control your ad preferences, please click here and follow the guidance provided by Google.
Most web browsers have a "help" menu where you can review how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have your browser alert you when you receive a new cookie or how to fully disable cookies on your browser. You can learn more about cookies at sites like www.aboutcookies.org. If you use your browser settings to block all cookies, you may not be able to access all or parts of our Sites. Please also note our “Cookie Settings” functionality in our Site(s) in this regard.

We use your information for the following general purposes: products and services provisioning, billing, identification and authentication, services improvement, contact and research.
We use third-party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage and other technology and services required to operate and maintain our services which may require that your personal information be transferred to these vendors and partners. Although we own the code, databases and all rights to the Watershed application, you retain all rights to your data. We maintain reasonable security measures to protect your information from loss, destruction, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure. These technologies help ensure that your data is safe, secure, and only available to you and to those you provided authorized access. However, no data transmission over the internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. In cases of onward transfer to third parties of data of EU and Swiss individuals received pursuant to the EU/US and SW-US Privacy Shield, we are potentially liable.
We acknowledge the right of individuals to access their information. Requests to access personal information and/or limit the use or disclosure of personal data should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line “Personal Information Access Request”.
Children’s Personal Information
In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), we do not knowingly request, solicit, access or receive personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13. Our customers who use Watershed to run their training programs and store personal data may, however, collect personal data from children under the age 13 using this platform. Such parties are the “operators” of their respective websites as defined by COPPA. While it is our customers’ responsibility, not ours, to ensure compliance with COPPA, in the event we have actual notice that a customer has collected personal information in violation of COPPA, we will require such customer to take measures to comply with COPPA.
