Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy Scope

doingenglish.com (“the Site”) is owned and operated by Doing English. Doing English is committed to protecting your personal information, being transparent about what information we collect, and giving you control over how we use it.

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means information that identifies and can be used to contact a particular individual, and “non-personal information” means data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual.

The purpose of this privacy policy is to give you a clear explanation about how Doing English collects, uses and protects personal and non-personal information when you use our website and/or purchase our products or services, collectively called our “Services”. It is important for you to read this policy in full to understand what information we hold about you, how we may use it and how you can access, update and delete your personal information. However, if you don’t have time to read the whole policy now, here are the main reasons we collect different information about our users:

To help us monitor, analyze and improve our Services;

To obtain payment for product or service orders;

To fulfill product or service orders;

To provide you with a more personalized and valuable experience;

To send you details about our Services and other information we feel is of value to you, where you have signed up to receive such marketing communications;

To help sell online advertising space.

To be able to do these things, it’s important we collect and analyze data including who our users are and how they use our Services.

NOTE: doingenglish.com may contain links to non-Doing English sites for your use and reference. This includes social buttons provided by services like Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Facebook, and other social media providers. Your use of these third party services is entirely optional. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices of these third party sites. We recommend you review the privacy policies of each site you visit.

What Information Does Doing English Collect About Me?

We may collect information about you from a variety of sources, including information we collect from you directly; information we collect about you when you visit our sites, use our services, or view our online advertisements; and information we collect about you from other sources (where permitted by law).

Information you provide directly:

We collect information directly from you when you choose to participate in our offers and programs or otherwise provide information directly to us. The following are examples of information we may collect directly from you:

  • Name
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Other information about you and your family such as gender or product use preferences and/or behaviors
  • Demographic information

Information we collect when you visit our sites, use our services, or view our online advertisements:

We may use cookies, web beacons, personalized retargeting and other technologies to collect non-personal information about you when you visit our site, use our services, or view online advertisements. We use these technologies to provide you a more personalized and richer consumer experience at doingenglish.com. We do not store any of your personal information in cookies, web beacons or other technologies on your computer.

Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to a website. This lets companies provide you with targeted advertisements which are more relevant to you and your interests. Often called “interest based advertising” it is done by grouping together shared interests based upon previous web browsing activity.

Examples of cookies our website may use include Google’s Dynamic Ad Serving feature, which uses the Teracent cookie and DoubleClick’s DART cookie. Google’s use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to our users based on their visit to our site and/or other sites on the internet.

The Site may use other tracking tools, including web beacons. Web beacons are images on the Site (or in emails that the Site sends to you) that help us determine what parts of the Site you have visited, whether you have opened an email that we have sent to you, or otherwise to measure the effectiveness of the Site. These technical methods may involve the transmission of information directly to us or to a service provider authorized by us to collect information on our behalf.

Personalized retargeting is another form of internet based advertising that enables our advertiser partners to show you ads based on your online browsing away from doingenglish.com. For example, if you visited the website of an online book store you may start seeing adverts from the same book store displaying special offers or showing you the products that you were browsing when you come to doingenglish.com. This allows companies to advertise to people who previously visited their website.

We may also collect and use any data that you provide us by posting it at our website or by sending to us via email. You can always choose not to provide us with information. However, if you do withhold information, we may deny you access to some or all of our website’s services and features.

Although these internet based advertising technologies can track your visits around the web they do not identify who you are personally. Even if you sign in to doingenglish.com, the internet based advertising data is still not linked to your personal information.

The following are examples of information we may collect with these technologies:

Your browser type and operating system.

Web pages you view.

Links you click.

IP address.

Site you visited before coming to our site.

Doing English emails you open and/or forward

Doing English offers or links you connect to via emails.

Information we collect from other sources:

We may obtain information about you from other sources, including social media sharing sites and commercially available sources, such as data aggregators and public databases. The following are examples of information we may collect from other sources.

Name, postal address.

Age or date of birth.

Income level.

Marital status and number of children.

Your interests such as hobbies and pets.

Consumer and market research data.

Purchase behavior.

Publicly observed data or activities, such as blogs, videos, internet postings, user generated content, and in-store shopping behavior.

The data these sources hold about you has been collected from publicly available records, such as voter registration data, or via a range of sources with your permission (such as where you have agreed, through opt-in, for your information to be shared with third parties).
