Privacy Policy

Last updated: June 17, 2021

This policy explains what information we collect when you use Dacade’s sites and content (“Services”). It also has information about how we store, use, transfer, and delete that information.

Information We Collect & How We Use It

Dacade doesn’t make money from ads. So we don’t collect data in order to advertise to you. The tracking we do at Dacade is to make our product work as well as possible.

In order to give you the best possible experience using Dacade, we collect information from your interactions with our network. Some of this information, you actively tell us (such as your email address, which we use to track your account or communicate with you). Other information, we collect based on actions you take while using Dacade, such as what learning community you access and your interactions with our product features (like reviews and comments). This information includes records of those interactions, your Internet Protocol address, information about your device (such as device or browser type), and referral information.

We use this information to:

provide, test, improve, promote and personalize Dacade Services, fight spam and other forms of abuse generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how people use Dacade Services

Information Disclosure

Dacade won’t transfer information about you to third parties for the purpose of providing or facilitating third-party advertising to you. We won’t sell information about you.

We may share your account information with third parties in some circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; (2) to a service provider or partner who meets our data protection standards; (3) with academic or non-profit researchers, with aggregation, anonymization, or pseudonymization; (4) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other legal process; (5) when we have a good faith belief that doing so will help prevent imminent harm to someone.

If we are going to share your information in response to legal process, we’ll give you notice so you can challenge it (for example by seeking court intervention), unless we’re prohibited by law or believe doing so may endanger others. We will object to requests for information about users of our services that we believe are improper.

Data Storage

Dacade uses third-party vendors and hosting partners, such as Google, for hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology we need to run Dacade. We maintain two types of logs: server logs and event logs. By using Dacade Services, you authorize Dacade to transfer, store, and use your information in the United States and any other country where we operate.

Third-Party Embeds

Some of the content that you see displayed on Dacade is not hosted by Dacade. These “embeds” are hosted by a third-party and embedded in Dacade. For example: YouTube or Vimeo videos, Imgur or Giphy gifs, SoundCloud audio files, Twitter tweets, GitHub code, or Scribd documents that appear within a Dacade learning material. These files send data to the hosted site just as if you were visiting that site directly (for example, when you load a Dacade post page with a YouTube video embedded in it, YouTube receives data about your activity). Dacade does not control what data third parties collect in cases like this, or what they will do with it. So, third-party embeds on Dacade are not covered by this privacy policy. They are covered by the privacy policy of the third-party service.

Some embeds may ask you for personal information, such as your email address, through a form. We do our best to keep bad actors off of Dacade. However, if you choose to submit your information to a third party this way, we don’t know what they may do with it. As explained above, their actions are not covered by this Privacy Policy. So, please be careful when you see embedded forms on Dacade asking for your email address or any other personal information. Make sure you understand who you are submitting your information to and what they say they plan to do with it. We suggest that you do not submit personal information to any third-party through an embedded form.

If you embed a form that allows submission of personal information by users, you must provide near the embedded form a prominent link to an applicable Privacy Policy that clearly states how to you intend to use any information collected. Failure to do so may lead Dacade to disable the post or take other action to limit or disable your account.

Tracking & Cookies

We use browser cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you return to our Services. We use them in various ways, for example to log you in, remember your preferences (such as default language), evaluate email effectiveness  and personalize content and other information.

Dacade doesn’t track you across the Internet. We track only your interactions within the Dacade product.

Some third-party services that we use to provide the Dacade Service, such as Google Analytics, may place their own cookies in your browser. This Privacy Policy covers use of cookies by Dacade only and not the use of cookies by third parties.

Modifying or Deleting Your Personal Information

If you have a Dacade account, you can write us and we will modify or export your personal information, or delete your account for you.

To protect information from accidental or malicious destruction, we may maintain residual copies for a brief time period. But, if you delete your account, your information and content will be unrecoverable after that time. Dacade may preserve and maintain copies of your information when required to do so by law.

Data Security

We use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we can’t guarantee security. You use the Service at your own risk, and you’re responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account.

Business Transfers

If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, reorganization or sale of assets such that your information would be transferred or become subject to a different privacy policy, we’ll notify you in advance so you can opt out of any such new policy by deleting your account before transfer.

Email from Dacade

Sometimes we’ll send you emails about your account, service changes or new policies. You can’t opt out of this type of “transactional” email (unless you delete your account). But, you can opt out of non-administrative emails such as digests, newsletters, and activity notifications by writing us a short reply.

When your interact with an email sent from Dacade (such as opening an email or clicking on a particular link in an email), we may receive information about that interaction. We won’t email you to ask for your password or other account information. If you receive such an email, please send it to us so we can investigate.

Changes to this Policy

Dacade may periodically update this Policy. We’ll notify you about significant changes to it. The most current version of the policy will always be here and we will archive former versions of the policy here.
