Privacy Policy for the “GradeBuilder” Educational Platform – Online Courses

Welcome to the “GradeBuilder” online educational platform! We value your trust and respect your privacy. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, and safeguard your personal information when you use our platform. Please read this policy to understand how we handle your data.

1. Collected Information

1.1. When you leave a comment on our site, we collect the information provided in the comment form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and user-agent data from the browser for spam detection purposes.

1.2. An anonymized string created from your email address (“hash”) may be provided to the Gravatar service to determine if you are using it. The Gravatar privacy policy is available here: After your comment is approved, your profile picture will be publicly visible in the context of your comment.

2. Media Files

2.1. If you are a registered user and upload photos to the site, you may want to avoid uploading images with EXIF metadata, as they may contain GPS location data. Visitors can extract this information by downloading images from the site.

3. Cookies

3.1. If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. This is for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

3.2. If you have an account on the site and log in, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

3.3. When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me,” your login will persist for two weeks. Logging out of your account will remove the login cookies.

3.4. When you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

4. Embedded Content from Other Websites

4.1. Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the same way as if the visitor had visited the other website.

4.2. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with embedded content, including tracking your interaction if you have an account and are logged in to that site.

5. Sharing Your Data

5.1. If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

6. Data Retention

6.1. If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

6.2. For registered users on our site, we store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their own information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

7. Your Rights

7.1. If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

8. Where Your Data Goes

8.1. User comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Thank you for using the “GradeBuilder” platform. Your privacy and data security are important to us.
