Information about your use of our Properties and other User-provided Information
We may collect usage information about your use of certain features on our Properties, such as the number of courses you have taken, the number of videos you have viewed, and the amount of time spent to complete a course. This enables us to better tailor educational experiences that are most appropriate for you.

We make available certain features on our Properties that allow other Users to provide us information about you. This information may include Personal Information.
Information from Other Sources
In certain situations, we may obtain information, including Personal Information, from third parties or sources other than our Properties.
