Effective: May 01, 2020

This Privacy Policy describes how Dermatopathology Consultations LLC, doing business as Dermpedia Courses (“Dermpedia Courses,” “we,” or “us”) may collect information about you through use of the website (the “Site”) and the related courses and services provided by us (the “Services”).

By using the Services and the Site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, so please read it carefully. If you have any questions or concerns about this Privacy Policy, or about the way your information is collected and used, please contact us at

We may amend this Privacy Policy at any time by posting a revised version on our website. The revised version will be effective at the time we post it. See “Changes to Privacy Policy”, below.

This Privacy Policy is only applicable to the Site and the Services. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any other website that you may be able to access through the Services or the Site that is not controlled by us, or any website of our business partners, each of which may have data collection, storage and use practices and policies that may differ from this Privacy Policy.


1. Information We Collect

1.1 Personal Information

Some of the Services require us to learn more about you so that we can best meet your needs. When you access the Services, we may ask you to voluntarily provide us certain information that personally identifies you or could be used to personally identify you (“Personal Information”). We may also collect additional information, which may be Personal Information, as otherwise described to you at the point of collection or pursuant to your consent. You may still access and use some of the Services if you choose not to provide us with any Personal Information, but features of the Services that require your Personal Information will not be accessible to you.

1.2 Billing, Collection and Payment Information

When you purchase any Service from us, your payment card information is processed by our payment processing partner. Our payment processing partner collects and stores your voluntarily provided payment card information necessary to process your payment. Such partner’s use and storage of information it collects is governed by its applicable terms of service and privacy policy. We do not permanently store your payment card information, but merely pass it to our payment processing partner at the time a transaction is being processed.

1.3 Traffic Data

We also may automatically collect certain data when you use the Services, such as (1) IP address; (2) domain server; (3) type of device(s) used to access the Services; (4) web browser(s) used to access the Services; (5) referring webpage or other source through which you accessed the Services; (6) geolocation information; and (7) other statistics and information associated with the interaction between your browser or device and the Services (collectively “Traffic Data”). Depending on applicable law, some Traffic Data may be Personal Information.

2. How We Collect Information

We collect information when you use and interact with the Services or the Site, and in some cases from third party sources. Such means of collection include: (a) when you use the Services’ or the Site’s interactive tools and services; (b) when you voluntarily provide information in free-form text boxes through the Services or through responses to surveys, questionnaires and the like; (c) if you download and install certain applications and software we make available, we may receive and collect information transmitted from your computing device for the purpose of providing you the relevant Services, such as information regarding when you are logged on and available to receive updates or alert notices; (d) if you use a location-enabled device or browser, we may receive information about your location and device, as applicable; (e) through use of cookies, web beacons, website analytics services and other tracking technology; and (f) when you use the “Contact Us” function on the Site, send us an email or otherwise contact us.

3. How We Use and Disclose Information

We use your Personal Information to provide you with the Services, respond to your requests, contact you with information about Services you have purchased, and to provide you with related customer service. Also, we may use your Personal Information to send you information about us or our products or services, notify you about certain services we think you may be interested in learning more about, or sending emails and other communications about topics that we think will interest you according to your preferences.

We may use your Personal Information to personalize your experience interacting with us, including by presenting information tailored to you, and for our business purposes, such as data analysis, audits, fraud monitoring and prevention, developing and improving our Services and new products and services, determining the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns, and operating and expanding our business activities.

We may share your Personal Information with faculty and other persons involved in offering and conducting our Services. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may provide Personal Information to our affiliated businesses or to our business partners, who may use it to send you communications or for other lawful purposes.

We may disclose Personal Information to our service providers, who provide services such as website hosting, data analysis, payment processing, order fulfilment, information technology and related infrastructure provision, customer service, email delivery, auditing, and other services.

We also may disclose your Personal Information or any other information we collect about you if we determine in good faith that such disclosure is needed to: (1) comply with or fulfill our obligations under applicable law, regulation, court order or other legal process; (2) protect the rights, property or safety of you, us or another party; (3) enforce the Agreement or other agreements with you; (4) respond to claims that any posting or other content violates third-party rights; or (5) investigate security breaches or otherwise cooperate with authorities pursuant to a legal matter.

In the event that we or some or all of our business, assets or stock are sold or transferred or used as security, or to the extent we engage in business negotiations with third parties, Personal Information may be transferred to or shared with third parties as part of any such transaction or negotiation. Should one of these events occur, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you before your information becomes subject to different privacy and security policies and practices.

We may use and disclose information that is not Personal Information (including Personal Information that has been de-identified and/or aggregated) for any purpose, except to the extent limited by applicable law. If we are required to treat such information as Personal Information under applicable law, then we may use it for all the purposes for which we use and disclose Personal Information.

We may combine information received from third parties with information that we have from or about you and use the combined information for any of the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

4. Security

We seek to use reasonable physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to protect information within our organization. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if your account data has been lost, stolen or used without permission, or the security of your account with us has been otherwise compromised), please immediately contact us in accordance with the “Contact Information” section below. If we believe that the security of your Personal Information may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we will endeavor to notify you as promptly as possible under the circumstances by e-mail to the most recent e-mail address you have provided us in your account profile. Please keep your e-mail address in your account up to date. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Credentials and for restricting access to your device, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your password.

5. Controlling Your Personal Information & Notifications

If you are a registered user of the Services, you can modify certain Personal Information or account information by logging in and accessing your account. You can request the removal or modification of the Personal Information you have provided to us, or close your account with us, by sending an email to the appropriate area under “Contact Us”. For your protection, we may only implement requests with respect to the Personal Information associated with the particular email address that you use to send us your request, and we may need to verify your identity and obtain information on the context in which you provided your Personal Information before implementing your request. We will try to accommodate your request as soon as reasonably practicable. Please note that we reserve the right to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes, to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting such change or deletion, and/or to comply with law, prevent fraud, resolve disputes, enforce the Agreement and take other actions permitted by law. There may also be residual information that will remain within our databases and other records, which will not be removed.

You can take yourself off our email list for promotional offers at any time by updating your email communications preference in your account profile. If you opt out of receiving promotional emails from us, we may still send you important administrative messages, from which you cannot opt out.

6. Information Provided on Behalf of Children and Others

The Services are not intended for use by children and children are prohibited from using the Services. We do not knowingly collect any information from children, nor are the Services directed to children. If you use the Services on behalf of another person, you agree that we may contact you for any communication made in connection with providing the Services or any legally required communications. You further agree to forward or share any such communication with any person on behalf of whom you are using the Services.

7. Cookies and Other Technologies

Like many other websites and online services, we collect information about Service traffic and usage patterns through the use of cookies, Web server logs, and other, similar technologies. We use this information for various purposes, such as to ensure that the Services function properly, to facilitate navigation, to personalize your experience, to understand use of the Services, to diagnose problems, to measure the success of our marketing campaigns, and to otherwise administer the Services.

Cookies are small computer files we transfer to your computer's hard drive. These small text files help us personalize content on our pages. Your browser software can be set to reject or accept cookies. Instructions for resetting the browser are available in the Help section of most browsers.

Our use of cookies also allows us to collect and retain certain information about a website user, such as the type of Web browser used by our customer. Reviewing our Web server logs and our customers' use of our site helps us to, among other purposes, statistically monitor how many people are using our site and for what purpose.

Your IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider. An IP address may be identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user accesses the Services, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice and is done automatically by many websites, applications and other services. We use IP addresses for purposes such as calculating usage levels of the Services, helping diagnose server problems, and administering the Services.

Some web browsers allow you to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer, tablet or mobile device. Although you are not required to accept our cookies or mobile device identifiers, if you block or reject them, you may not have access to all features available through the Services. We do not respond to do-not-track signals.

8. Other Websites

The Services may contain links to, or otherwise make available, third-party websites, services, or other resources not operated by us or on our behalf ("Third Party Services"). These links are provided as a convenience only and do not constitute an affiliation with, endorsement or sponsorship of the Third Party Services. Any information you provide to such third parties is not subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy, and we are not responsible for the privacy or security of the information you provide to them or their handling of your information. We recommend that you review the privacy policy of any third party to whom you provide personal information online.

9. Changes to Privacy Policy

The effective date of this Privacy Policy is set forth at the top of this webpage. We will notify you of any material change by posting notice on this webpage. Your continued use of the Services after the effective date constitutes your acceptance of the amended Privacy Policy. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices. Any amended Privacy Policy supersedes all previous versions. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO FUTURE CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY, YOU MUST STOP USING THE SERVICES AFTER THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF SUCH CHANGES.
