How We Gather Information
Event or course registration: When you register online for a conference, we collect the information you provide us, including your name, contact information, affiliation, the name and location of the course, and attendance information. We use this information to ensure that you are properly registered for the course you have selected, and to notify you about other courses that may be of interest to you. We also use this information in the course of fulfilling our obligations to provide the course to you, including providing you course materials and contacting you with respect to the course itself. In addition, student evaluation forms, together with the identity of the student completing the evaluation, may be made available to Stronger employees responsible for evaluating the quality of the course, including the instructors themselves.
Contracted service-providers: Stronger may use sub-contractors to proctor or administer exams for courses we sponsor, or for other certification, accreditation or licensing. The authentication and validation process may include requiring persons to provide identification.
Co-sponsoring organizations: Some Stronger training events are co-sponsored by other organizations in conjunction with a regional training, private industry, government agencies, or education institutions. When you register for one of these events, the co-sponsoring organization may have access to your registration data. The co-sponsor may use this information for purposes related to the event but, unless you are specifically notified otherwise, may not share it with others or use the data for marketing purposes. When you attend a conference, whether sponsored by Stronger or otherwise, Stronger may collect information concerning your participation and feedback. Stronger is not responsible for the privacy or security policies of these third parties.
Your employer: Many organizations purchase Stronger training for employees. By participating in sponsored training, the student understands and agrees that their student data, including contact information and course-related data may be shared with the organization’s designated contact. This information is used solely for the purposes of deploying purchased training across the organization and tracking established matrix.
Vendor-sponsored events/webcasts: When you register for a free vendor-sponsored webcast, your contact information may be shared with the sponsoring vendor.
