This also includes personalizing courses, so your learning experience is tailored to your interests and needs, and assessing your performance and awarding certificates.

Exercise, enforce, and comply with legal rights and obligations – This includes responding to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process; and investigating, preventing, or taking action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, security or technical issues, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of ILI, Members, or others, and as otherwise required by applicable law.
USE OF INFORMATION
We want to be clear about the data we collect and how we use it to serve you better. Below are two types of data we collect.
What You “Do” on the site. This can include:
- Things you search for
- Pages within our site you visit and the length of time you visit them
- Videos you watch
- Pop Ups you click on
- Your location
- Device information
- IP address and cookie data
Information you give us during a sign up process. This can include your:

ILI may combine the information you provide on the site with other information we may collect from you, so that we can more effectively tailor the site to your needs. ILI may from time to time contact you and/or send information to you by telephone and/or e-mail with respect to the matters addressed by the site, in order to facilitate the sharing of information between ILI and you.
ILI will not share any personal information you provide on the site with any parties other than its advisors and affiliates, except (a) with your consent; (b) as may be required by law or court order or as requested by a law enforcement agency; (c) to protect the personal safety, security or property of our users, the public, or ourselves; or (d) to respond to an emergency. Donor information is not shared or sold whether collected offline or online.
ILI may also collect, aggregate, and maintain anonymous information about the visitors to the site. This data can then be used to tailor the site’s content to deliver a better experience for our visitors.
You may request to be removed from any future contact from ILI by unsubscribing from communications or notifying the site administrator via email. ILI will take prompt steps to the best of our ability to adhere to your requests.
HOW YOUR INFORMATION IS SHARED
ILI or a Member may also seek your consent for additional disclosures of information, including Personal Information, and will share it only as described to you. In addition, ILI or a Member may share with the public and with third parties, including but not limited to researchers and business partners, information and Personal Information that is de-identified or aggregated in a manner that does not personally identify you.
HOW TO MANAGE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You can manage your Personal Information through learner features on the ILI Site and requests to the ILI team. If your request involves information controlled by a Member, ILI will notify and coordinate with the appropriate Member to address your request. ILI will provide support to the extent required by applicable law (for example, learners in the European Union) and more broadly when possible, as a courtesy in our sole discretion. ILI will notify you in the event that ILI is unable to meet a request that is not legally required. Similarly, Members will only be obligated to comply with requests to the extent legally required, but may choose to comply with other requests in their sole discretion.
Access and correct your Personal Information
Much of your Personal Information is available in your ILI account. Your name, email address, and other identifiable profile information is editable through the profile settings in your ILI account except as noted below. Your account dashboard lists all current and archived courses in which you have enrolled and includes links to any Certificates you may have earned. The dashboard also contains copies of your answers and other participation and performance in courses. Please contact ILI learner support to access and update this or other information. If your request involves information controlled by a Member, ILI learner support will notify the appropriate Member of your request.
- Usernames cannot ever be changed. This is an ILI system restriction. Because usernames identify you in courses and elsewhere on the ILI Site, ILI encourages you to use discretion in choosing your username. If you want to protect your identity, do not use your real name or a name identifiable to you as your username.
- ILI does not track or index every time or every place on the ILI Site when or where a learner may volunteer Personal Information, so neither ILI nor Members will be able to help you locate or manage all such instances. ILI encourages you to use discretion before volunteering Personal Information on the ILI Site.
Delete account and Personal Information
To request deletion of your ILI account and Personal Information, you should contact participant support through emailing [email protected]
Because deletion on the ILI system is a permanent action and cannot be reversed, ILI may ask you to complete a process that aims to confirm your authority to manage the ILI account affected by your request.
With respect to your ILI account, ILI will permanently:
- deactivate your ILI account,
- remove the active profile,
- retire your username, and
- remove you from ILI email lists.
With respect to your Personal Information, ILI will permanently delete your ILI account profile Personal Information from the ILI Site.
As noted above, to the extent that ILI associates the information that ILI collects directly or indirectly with an individual (for example, you), the association is based on Personal Information in your ILI account profile. By erasing the Personal Information in your ILI account profile, the remaining information about your activity on the ILI Site will no longer be associated with you, except as noted below.
These changes will be applied to data stores that are used for operation of the ILI Site including course administration by Members. If you enrolled in any courses on the ILI Site, the ILI will share your request with the Members that offered those courses.
- Deletion will not apply to historical activity logs or archives unless and until these logs and data naturally “age-off” the ILI system.
- ILI does not track or index every time or every place on the ILI Site when or where a learner may volunteer Personal Information, so neither ILI nor Members will be able to help you locate or manage all such instances. ILI encourages you to use discretion before voluntarily sharing your Personal Information on the ILI Site.
- ILI will archive course data (in a manner and to the extent permitted under applicable law) to serve its mission to enable scientific research on cognitive science and education. These archives are used to produce encrypted research data packages for Members, and Personal Information may not be deleted from research data packages retained by Members.
- ILI and each applicable Member cannot always delete records of past interactions and transactions. For example, records relating to previous purchases on the ILI Site must be retained for financial reporting, audit, and compliance reasons.
- ILI and each Member will retain and use Personal Information as necessary to comply with its legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce its agreements, and as otherwise permitted by applicable law.
ILI will retain your Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with services; to maintain a record of your transactions for financial reporting, audit, and compliance purposes; and to comply with ILI’s legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce its agreements, and as otherwise permitted by applicable law. If you enroll in a Member’s course, such Member will also retain your Personal Information for as long as needed to provide you with services; to maintain a record of your transactions for financial reporting, audit, and compliance purposes; and to comply with its legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce its agreements, and as otherwise permitted by applicable law. Upon your request that ILI deactivate your account and delete your information, ILI will follow the process described above, including without limitation archiving your course data (in a manner and to the extent permitted under applicable law) to serve its mission to enable scientific research on cognitive science and education. These archives will be used to produce encrypted research data packages for Members, and each such Member may also keep and use course data for scientific research.
STORAGE and SECURITY
ILI stores information, including Personal Information, on its own servers and also on servers of companies that ILI hires to provide services. Each Member also stores information, including Personal Information, on its own servers and/or on servers of companies that the Member hires to provide services. In each case, information may be stored in the United States and in other countries where ILI or a Member operates, and in countries where ILI and each Member’s respective service providers operate. If you are in the European Union, Switzerland, or other regions with laws governing data collection and use, you acknowledge that ILI and each Member may transfer, process and store your personal information in the United States and other countries, the privacy laws of which may be considered less strict than those of your region.
ILI controls its own copy of information collected through the ILI Site and has an information security program designed to protect information in its possession or control. This is done through a variety of privacy and security policies, processes, and procedures. ILI uses administrative, physical, and technical safeguards that reasonably and appropriately protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the information that it collects, receives, stores, or transmits. Nonetheless, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure; and therefore, ILI cannot guarantee its absolute security. While ILI works hard to ensure the integrity and security of its network and systems, ILI cannot guarantee that its security measures will prevent “hackers” or other unauthorized persons from illegally accessing or obtaining information.
If ILI learns of a security breach involving its copy of your Personal Information, ILI may attempt to notify you electronically so that you may take appropriate protective steps. By using the ILI Site or providing Personal Information to ILI, you agree that ILI can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the ILI Site. If a security systems breach occurs, ILI may post a notice on the ILI homepage (www.ILIteam.org) or elsewhere on the ILI Site and may send an email to you at the email address associated with your ILI account. Depending on where you are located, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach, involving your Personal Information, in writing.
If a Member learns of a security breach involving that Member’s copy of your Personal Information, the Member may attempt to notify you electronically so that you may take appropriate protective steps. By enrolling in a Member’s course on the ILI Site or providing Personal Information to the Member, you agree that the Member can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your course enrollment and participation. If a security systems breach occurs, the affected Member may post a notice on the ILI site and/or send an email to you at the email address associated with your enrollment in the Member’s course on the ILI Site. Depending on where you are located, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach, involving your Personal Information, in writing.
If you have privacy concerns, have disclosed data you would prefer to keep private, or would like to access the Personal Information that ILI maintains about you, please contact us at [email protected]
If your request involves a Member, ILI will notify the appropriate Member of your request.
