The HGV Learning Website is a general audience site and does not knowingly collect PII or Related Data from children under 16 years of age.

From time to time HGV Learning may modify this Privacy Policy to reflect industry initiatives or changes in the law, our PII or Related Data collection and use practices, the features of the HGV Learning Services, or technology, and such modifications shall be effective upon posting by HGV Learning on the HGV Learning Website.  Your continued use of the HGV Learning Services after HGV Learning posts a revised Privacy Policy signifies your acceptance of the revised Privacy Policy.  It is therefore important that you review this Privacy Policy regularly to ensure you are updated as to any changes.  If HGV Learning materially changes its practices regarding collection or use of your PII or Related Data, your PII and Related Data will continue to be governed by the Privacy Policy under which it was collected unless you have been provided notice of, and have not objected to, the change.


General .  HGV Learning collects your email address, first and last name, postal address, gender, and date of birth from you in order to register you as a Client (“Registration Data”).  HGV Learning cannot register you as a Client without this information.  All other information you provide during the HGV Learning registration or that you post on the HGV Learning website is voluntary.  HGV Learning may also collect PII from you if you choose to participate in HGV Learning Services activities like sweepstakes, contests, and surveys, because you want us to furnish you with products, services, newsletters, magazines, texting service or information, or in connection with content or suggestions you submit to HGV Learning for review.

In addition, HGV Learning collects other Related Data and non-PII Including IP address, aggregate user data, and browser type.  This data is used to manage and improve the HGV Learning Services, track usage, and for security purposes.

HGV Learning Clients may also choose to provide or store non-PII information and Related Data in their profiles, Including but not limited to date of birth, interests, hobbies, lifestyle choices, groups with whom they are affiliated (schools, companies), videos and/or pictures, private messages, bulletins or personal statements (collectively “Profile Information”).  The Profile Information in a Client’s profile is provided at his or her sole discretion.  Please be aware that your Profile Information, as well as any information posted to any public forum, can be accessed by the public.  Profile Information located on private profiles can be accessed by HGV Learning at all times and, in limited cases, by certain third parties authorized by HGV Learning for purposes of ensuring compliance with HGV Learning’s Terms of Use.

HGV Learning Clients can change their Registration Data and Profile Information at any time and can control how Visitors, other Clients and HGV Learning communicate with them by controlling their account settings, available within the “Edit Profile” portion of their HGV Learning profile.

HGV Learning determines the purposes of collection, use and disclosure of the Registration Data you provide and, as such, is considered the data controller of this information.  Because the Client, not HGV Learning, determines the purposes for which Profile Information is collected, used and disclosed, HGV Learning is not the data controller of Profile Information that Clients provide on their profile.

Third party applications (such as widgets) created by third party developers may also be available on the HGV Learning Services.  Third party applications are small bits of software, often with interactivity, that can be installed into Clients’ profiles or shared with other Users.  However, HGV Learning does not control the third party developers, and cannot dictate their actions.  When a Client engages with a third party application, that Client is interacting with the third party developer, not with HGV Learning.

HGV Learning encourages Clients not to provide PII to the third party’s application unless the Client knows the party with whom it is interacting.
