This page describes in detail how itslearning processes personal data when you register for and contribute to our Ideas Portal. For information about other ways itslearning processes personal data, go to the start page of our privacy policy.

Why we process personal data

We process your personal data so we can gather and crowdsource ideas and input to the itslearning product. This helps us improve our product for the benefit of our users and customers.

You need to have a user account on the Ideas Portal to be able to post ideas or comment on other users ideas. This helps ensure the integrity of the data, and allows us to personalize the experience and reach out to you if we need more information from you.

We process your personal data based on our legitimate interest, having assessed that our interest is necessary and important, and that your interests, rights and freedoms are not likely to be negatively impacted.

How we collect the data

We collect personal data from you when you sign up to the Ideas Portal, submit ideas or contribute feedback to other users ideas.

Any user can register for the Ideas Portal, even if they are not affiliated with itslearning or any of our customers.

Type of data we collect

We collect the following personal data:

  • Contact details: Name, email, Ideas Portal user ID, password (encrypted).
  • Community contributions. We collect ideas, comments and votes submitted by the user

Who can access your personal data

If you submit an idea or feedback, it will be publicly available on the Ideas Portal together with your name and profile picture (optional).

Your e-mail address will only be available to a few select itslearning Ideas Portal administrators.

How long do we keep personal data?

If no activity, interest, intent or need can be identified within a 5-year period, we delete your personal data. We might de-personalize information you have provided to us for further archiving.

Note that we can keep personal data for longer than the specified time period if it is necessary to comply with legal or contractual obligations.
