Privacy Notice Highlights
When you visit our website, or if you use our services to embark on a learning journey, we will receive information about you. Our Privacy Notice provides more detail about how we gather that information, how we use it, and how we support your rights to your data. Let’s start off with the highlights!
We want to make you a great communicator.
Our visual storytelling workshops arm people with the strategies, tools, and confidence to become strategic communicators. We know people learn best by doing—not by being lectured to. The Presentation Company’s (TPC’s) training is delivered in-person, virtually and on-demand digitally, but—regardless of modality—all of our workshops are highly experiential. We incorporate hands-on activities, knowledge checks, and time to work on real communications in every course. This means we collect certain information about you through the learning journey.
We believe in secure and transparent use.
We use personal information to present our website and our services, and to fulfill other requests you may have (like answering support questions). We have implemented measures designed to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. We have included additional details in our Privacy Statement, but what we want you to remember is that we safeguard the information we hold, and we are not going to sell it to a third party.
This is how we collect information.
We collect personal information:
- When you provide it: whenever you enter information into our website or digital learning platform
- From third-parties, like social media platforms
- Through automatic information collection technologies, like cookies
You have options.
If you ever decide you don’t want to receive our promotional information any more, you can unsubscribe at any time – either through the unsubscribe link in the message or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include in the subject line “Opt-out”. You may also have additional rights if you are based in the European Union or in California, so check out the full Privacy Notice for more details.
We are available for additional information.
If you have questions about our privacy practices, or if you have a question about your information specifically, you can contact us with additional inquiries:

HOW WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
How we collect your personal information is based on how you use and interact with our Website or Services. Some of this information is provided directly by you, while other information may be provided by your employer, our customer, in connection with use of our Services.
When you, or your organization, sign up to use our Websites or Services, or you fill in forms on our Website, such as the “Contact Us” formor register for
All of this information may be collected while using the Services.
When you use the Services, TPC receives information provided by you or your organization in order to deliver the courses in your learning journey.
Additionally, you may be required to provide specific information (such as your login credentials) that allows our digital learning platform to verify your identity before accessing certain data we host.
We may also receive your information through your participation virtually or at in-person or onsite trainings. This information allows us to deliver the services as contracted by you or your organization.
Your information is kept secure, is used to assist you in accessing your account and/or to deliver the services and is not shared except in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
We may collect information about you from third party or public sources, such as social networks when you click “Share This” via Facebook, Connect, Twitter, Linked In, Google+, or other social media “like” buttons or plug-ins available on the Website.
We may also collect information about you from the third party that supports our on-demand course fulfillment and delivery (Shopify) as well as payment providers such as Paypal, ApplePay, GPay, etc., when you purchase one of our on-demand self-paced courses. This information is limited to transaction detail associated with your order and includes your name, email, shipping address.
Within the digital learning environment, we allow you to link your learning profile with a social network profile to share information or to create one from scratch. Any data collected by a third party, such as social networking sites, would be handled based on their privacy practices rather than this notice.
We and our service providers may collect information about the computer or device you are using and Internet connection, including your IP address, operating system and browser type. This automatically collected information is statistical data and typically does not include Personal Information. Having information like this helps us to improve our Website and to deliver a better and more personalized service. Additional information is available in the section on How We Use your Information.
As is true of most websites, the information we and our service providers may collect include, browsing actions and patterns including traffic data, location data, logs, website resources you access, and search queries.
While we do not provide any Personal Information to third-party advertising partners, they may combine this information with Personal Information they collect directly from you or receive from other sources.
We want to be transparent about the automated technologies we use, and in order to accomplish that, we have made additional resources available to provide more detail around automatic information collection technologies available at our Cookie and Automated Technology Notice.
Our services offer community forums your organization may leverage to enhance your learning journey. If you elect to post information by using this functionality, any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others with access. To request removal of your personal information from the community forum, contact us at email@example.com. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We use automatic data collection technologies to collect and store certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns whenever you interact with this Website or the Services. More specifically, we use personal information for categories of services like these:
We also use service providers who help us deliver our Services. For licensed users of applications used to deliver training, we or our service providers may use tools and other tracking software within those applications to collect information related to the pages and areas within pages you visit, which enables us to provide improved functionality and other enhancements within the services.
You might see an advertisement from us on your social media page. Sometimes we allow third party advertising companies and ad networks to use automatic data collection technologies to collect similar information about you for purposes of providing you with interest-based ads. Interest-based ads are helpful because they are more likely to be tailored to your particular interests. They are also more likely to help you discover new services that are actually relevant to you and your interests. Also, if interest-based tracking is enabled, you likely will not see the same ads over and over because the number of times you see a particular interest-based ad is usually limited. By opting-out of interest-based ads, you lose all of these benefits.
WHEN WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Once your personal information is collected, as detailed above, we sometimes share it with third parties for various reasons. For example, we share personal information with our customer relationship management provider, content storage provider and analytics providers. Note that when we share your personal information with a third party, we require that third party to protect that information consistent with this Notice and limit its use of that information to performing the services they provide to us.
For purchasers of our publicly available on-demand courses, we partner with Shopify for order processing and fulfillment. Your credit card or other financial information will be provided directly to Shopify and we will only be notified that payment has been made and provided with your contact details. Once you have purchased a course, a confirmation email will be sent to you from Shopify with a link to access course content. Your contact information (name and email) will also be provided to our platform delivery partner, NovoEd, to enable you to stream the content on demand. Other than as stated in this Privacy Notice, we do not sell, rent or share your information with third parties.

Where that is the case, TPC will manage your data in accordance with our own internal policies and procedures and in accordance with applicable law and this Notice.

TPC is headquartered in the United States. Your personal information may be transferred to, processed, and maintained in places other than where you live.
The United States currently is not a country the European Union has deemed “adequate” under applicable data protection laws. TPC collects, transfers, and processes personal information under terms required by applicable law, including: when you provide your consent, to perform a contract with you (such as to deliver products or services), or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest of TPC in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms. TPC may enter into data protection agreements or other legally approved mechanisms with its vendors to support compliance with applicable law.
TPC has implemented appropriate safeguards to require that the personal information we process will remain protected in accordance with this Notice when transferred internationally, including when processed internationally by third-party service providers and partners. The safeguards we have taken may include implementing the European Commission's Standard Contractual Clauses, relying on a third-party service provider’s Binding Corporate Rules or other legally approved mechanism, for any transfer of personal information to non-EEA third-party service providers or business partners.
As of January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act provides specific rights to certain individuals who live in the state of California. We have determined that we are not currently subject to this law. If our business practices and future expansion changes so that CCPA applies to us, we will update these terms to ensure we reflect any additional rights granted. Those updates will be made available within this Privacy Notice, in accordance with those regulations.
In certain situations, TPC may be required to disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
We reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us.
TPC will take reasonable precautions to protect personal information in its possession from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We have implemented precautions designed to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. However, the safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you a password for access to certain parts of our Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.
We follow generally-accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Questions about Web site Security" in the subject line.
In the event TPC goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personal information will likely be among the assets transferred. You will be notified via prominent notice on our Web site for 30 days of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.
