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 transform individuals and teams at the world’s top brands into strategic communicators delivered in-person, virtually or digitally. We know people learn best by doing – not by being lectured to. The Presentation Company’s (TPC’s) workshops are highly experiential with interactive exercises, assignments, instructor coaching, and peer-to-peer feedback. 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 privacy@presentation-company.com 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.

We have more to share. 

We have created a full Privacy Statement to plainly communicate how we handle your data. You can view that below.

Effective November 4, 2014; updated April 18, 2019.

The Presentation Company, LLC (TPC) provides training and tools for creating and delivering effective, engaging presentations.  This Privacy Notice applies to https://www.presentation-company.com/, blog.presentation-company.com, and TPC websites, services that collect data and display these terms. It does not apply to any TPC website, service or product that does not display or link to this statement or that contains its own privacy notice.

INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW

Your privacy and trust are very important to us.  This Privacy Notice describes the types of information we may collect about you or that you may provide when you use our applications, content, communications, visit the website https://www.presentation-company.com/ (our “Website“) or use our services (collectively the “Services”) and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting and disclosing that information.

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.

Website

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” form, we may receive certain necessary information including:

  • · your name
  • · job title
  • · email address
  • · phone number
  • · employer name

All of this information may be collected while using the Services. 

When you use the Services, TPC receives information provided by 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 at in-person or onsite trainings.  This information allows us to deliver the services as contracted by 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 released except in accordance with this Privacy Notice. 

We may collect information about you from other 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.

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 privacy@presentation-company.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.

Some browsers offer a “Do Not Track” privacy preference. Generally, when a user turns on the Do Not Track Signal, their browser sends a message to websites requesting that the user not be tracked. Our Website and Services currently do not respond to “Do Not Track” signals. However, you do have other options for opting out of tracking for interest-based advertising purposes as described in this Privacy Policy. 

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:

Website

Services

  • · Developing/improving the services
  • · Emailing users with marketing offers where permitted
  • · Predictive analytics and data mining
  • · Interest-Based Advertising
  • · Providing our Services to users
  • · Communicating with customers about their services
  • · Responding to support requests
  • · Developing/improving the services


We also use service providers who help us accomplish these types of 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.

ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND YOUR CHOICES

TPC is engaged by top companies around the world to deliver our training services and where personal data is collected in relation to those services, we do so on behalf of customer organizations and those customer organizations manage the data in accordance with their own internal policies and procedures. Any questions related to how that customer organization may process, use or share your information should be directed to that customer organization by contacting them directly as we are not responsible for their data management practices.

We strive to provide you with choices regarding the Personal Information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:

If you do not wish to receive promotional e-mails from us, including our e-newsletters, you may either opt-out or follow the unsubscribe process at the bottom of the promotional e-mail or email  us at privacy@presentation-company.com. Note that even if you opt-out, you may still receive transactional e-mails from us (e.g., e-mails related to the completion of your registration, correction of user data, password reset requests, reminder e-mails that you have requested, and any other similar communications essential to your transactions on this Website) which may be necessary for us to continue to provide you with Services or respond to your enquiries.

You can set your browser to refuse some browser cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being set. Some cookies are required to use the Services.  To learn how you can manage your Flash cookie settings, visit our Cookie Notice.  If you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of this site may then be inaccessible or not function properly.

We do not control third parties’ collection or use of your information to serve interest-based ads. However, you can opt-out of receiving interest-based ads from third party advertisers and ad networks who are members of the NAI or who follow the DAA’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising by visiting the opt-out pages of the NAI and DAA websites. If you opt-out, you may still see contextual advertising from us, meaning you may still see personalized recommendations about our products and services and other similar features on this Website. You may also still see ads provided by us or others on other third-party websites; they just will not be based on your particular interests. Also note that your opt-out will be managed through the use of cookies, so if you delete these cookies or use a different browser or computer, you will have to make this same election again.

Individuals from the European Union or the United Kingdom may have the right to access personal information based on the laws applicable to you, including GDPR.  Any individual who seeks access to their personal information, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data should direct their enquiry to your organization, our customer, who controls your data.  Where TPC is only processing personal information on behalf of its Customers, inquiries made directly to TPC will be forwarded to our Customer for response.  TPC will respond to instructions from our Customer pertaining to such access/correction/deletion requests within a reasonable timeframe.  

Individuals from the European Union or the United Kingdom also have a right under applicable law request that personal data stored by TPC be corrected where that data is inaccurate. You may also request that TPC erase that data or cease processing it, subject to certain exceptions. In many countries, you have a right to lodge a complaint with the appropriate data protection authority if you have concerns about how TPC processes your personal data. Upon your request, and where it is technically feasible, TPC will provide you with a copy of your personal data or transmit it directly to the data controller.

To make a request, please contact us at inquiries@presentation-company.com with “Personal Information Request” in the subject line, and provide us with full details in relation to your request, including your contact information and any other detail you feel is relevant.

We will provide a response to an access request within 30 days of receiving such request.

We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide services to your organization. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

LEGAL DISCLOSURES

In certain situations, TPC may be required to disclose personal data 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 data 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.

SECURE COMMUNICATIONS

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 inquiries@presentation-company.com with "Questions about Web site Security" in the subject line.

BUSINESS TRANSFER

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 data 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.

BREACH OF PRIVACY PROTOCOLS

If you have received unwanted, unsolicited e-mail sent by TPC or from any TPC system or purporting to be sent via TPC, please forward a copy of that e-mail with your comments to inquiries@presentation-company.com for review.

If you have questions or complaints regarding our Privacy Notice or practices, please contact us at inquiries@presentation-company.com with “Privacy Enquiry” in the subject line and provide detail on your question or complaint so that we may adequately respond.
