Implications of not providing personal data
We only ask you to provide personal data when we have a good reason to do so, and there may be implications if you do not provide particular information to us. If you choose not to provide us with the personal data requested, we will tell you the particular implications of any such decision at the relevant time.
How do we use your personal data?
Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances.
- Where we need to perform the contract, we are about to enter or have entered into with you.

We will use the data we have collected to:
- Contact you if there are any important changes to the services you have requested.
- Respond to feedback or information you have submitted, or respond to a request for information.
- Keep a record of your relationship with us, including your purchase history.

- Analyse your personal information to create a profile of interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information most relevant to you.

Using Thinkific WEBSITE (www.huract.online)
Our online courses and site is hosted by Thinkific Labs Inc. (“Thinkific”). They provide us with an online course creation platform that allows us to sell our product/services to you.
Your data is stored through Thinkific’s data storage, databases and the general Thinkific application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

Data sharing and third parties
We engage the services of several third-party service providers, who act as Data Processors, to assist us with some of our administrative and operative services. We rely on their contractual obligation to us as the legal basis for sharing personal data with them. These third parties include our email distribution service and mailing house.
Certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies concerning the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand how your personal information will be handled by them.
Certain providers may be located in or have facilities in a different jurisdiction than you or us. Suppose you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider. In that case, your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
When you click on links on our course site, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
We may also share personal data with professionals such as bankers, lawyers, auditors and insurers who provide us with professional services to help protect HURACT interests. These third-party service providers will only use your personal data to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they are contracted to provide for us. We require all third-party service providers to respect and safeguard the privacy of your personal data and treat it following the law. We do not allow them to use your personal data for their own purposes.
We will not share, rent or exchange personal details with any other third parties without your agreement unless we are required to fulfil our contract with you or unless we are required to do so by law.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. Besides, we limit access to your personal data to those employees and third parties with a genuine business requirement to use it.
We have established procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including to satisfy any legal, accounting or reporting requirements. If you opt-in for marketing purposes, we will retain your data to notify you about our services as long as you decide to leave them there.
A copy of our Data Retention and Archiving Policy is available on request, using the contact details at the end of this privacy notice.
