THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS

Similarly to any other online business, in my business I use third-party service providers, that may collect and process your data in order to provide you with the services. Those third-party service providers allow me to use their products (platforms, systems) so that I can run my business and provide you with the best service. They lend me the server space to host my content. Some of those servers can be outside of the E.U. 

Security. I did what was in my power to make sure I use the services that grant highest security assurance and work in accordance to GDPR, so that you are sure that not only do I protect your data myself, but also the services I use do so. 

Third-party service providers. Tools I use and services that lend me the server space, where your data may be stored are: 

  • Landingi.com - landing pages builder where you provide your email address and name and last name. They are GDPR compliant. You can find their Privacy Polity HERE.
  • Teachable.com - the course platform where I put my content. While signing up you confirm that you have read, understood and accepted their Privacy Policy. Teachable is an American product thus the servers may be outside the E.U. Teachable is the owner of the servers, can have access to your data but is not processing it beyond providing you access to your student's account in my School. 
    I, as the controller, have access to your data. When signing up for an account you also agree to receive content regarding the courses (free or paid) and to join my separate newsletter list. 
    • Your data will be processed as long as my School on Teacheble exists unless you withdraw consent earlier. 
    • You have the right to access your data, change it, request deletion or withdraw consent to process it at any time.
       
  • Mailchimp and/or Acitve Campaign- the marketing automation systems that I use to send you newsletter, marketing and sales offers. When you download my freebies, create a student's account at Teachable, you agree to your data being added to my emailing list to receive marketing materials, free content (newsletter and freebies including free courses and pdfs) and commercial offers (paid courses and 1 on 1 sessions/trainings). 
    • Mailchimp - the service provider joined the Privacy Shield program and is also committed to achieving compliance with the GDPR to  make sure our data is protected. You can learn more HERE.
    • Active Campaign - the service provider is the member of the  Privacy Shield program. Because Active Campaign is an american company your data may be stored on servers outside of the E. U. You can read more about how AC protects your data in their Privacy Policy HERE
  • Disqus- I use Disqus plugin on my website for the comments on the blog however I am not the controller of the data that you use to create a Disqus account. The tool is not an email list building tool. You do not have to create the account however it is necessary to be able to leave the comment under my article. I use Disqus to help me manage comments and be able to react faster to any hate speech that I don't allow on any of my media.
