  1. Ownership of Site; Agreement to Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies to the Promethean website located at www.prometheanworld.com and except as set forth herein, all associated websites that are linked to www.prometheanworld.com by Promethean, its subsidiaries and affiliates, including Promethean websites around the world (collectively, the “Site”).  The Site contains links to the Promethean ClassFlow website and the Promethean Planet website.  The ClassFlow and Planet websites are not subject to this Privacy Policy, but instead are subject to a separate policy which can be found directly on those separate websites. 

Your privacy has always been and continues to be important to Promethean. Therefore, we have developed this Privacy Policy so that you will understand how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your information from this Site. Please read the following carefully. Questions, comments, and requests regarding this Privacy Policy should be addressed to privacy@prometheanworld.com.

This Site is the property of Promethean Limited and its licensors. By using this Site, you agree to this Privacy Policy.

The terms “we,” “us,” and “our” as used in this Policy refer to Promethean Limited.

Promethean may combine your Personal Information with other information to provide and improve our products, services, content, and marketing and advertising strategies. You are not required to provide the Personal Information that we have requested, but if you choose not to do so, in many cases we will not be able to provide you with our products or services or respond to any queries you may have.

The Personal Information we collect allows us to:

  1. Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information

Promethean also collects data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual user.  We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose this non-personal information for any purpose.  The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:

We may collect information about your computer, including, where available, your IP address, operating system, and browser type as well as information regarding your activities on the Site such as your browsing actions and patterns.  This information allows us to better understand customer behavior, improve our products and services, and improve the user experience on the Site. This information is aggregated and used to help us understand which parts of the Site, products, and services are of the most interest and to improve the user’s experience on the Site. Aggregated data is considered non-personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy. To the extent that IP addresses or similar identifiers are considered Personal Information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as Personal Information.

For many of the same reasons as outlined above, we may use a cookie file, which is stored on the hard drive of your computer. They help us to improve the Site and to deliver better and more personalised service. Cookies enable us to:

  • ensure that content from the Site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer;
  • speed up your use of the Site;
  • store information about your preferences;
  • customise the Site according to your individual interests;
  • estimate our customer base and usage pattern; and
  • recognise you when you return to the Site.

You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. However, if you select this setting, you may be unable to access certain parts of the Site. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you log on to the Site. To understand the cookies we use on this Site, please review our Cookies Policy at www.prometheanworld.com/cookie-policy.

  1. Where We Store Your Personal Information

The data that we collect from you on the Site is transferred to, and stored by, Amazon Web Services on servers located in the United States. By submitting your Personal Information, you agree to this transfer and to the storing or processing taking place in the United States. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of the data that you transmit to our Site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

  1. Disclosure of Your Information
  • We may disclose your Personal Information to any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006. However, such disclosure would be subject to such member of our group using your Personal Information in compliance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.
  • We may disclose your Personal Information to third parties:
  • if Promethean Limited or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets;
  • if Promethean Limited is required by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that, for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate;
  • if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or to protect our operations or users; or
  • who provide services on our behalf, such as information processing, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may not sell or share your information with any other third parties.
  • Your Personal Information will only be shared by Promethean to provide or improve our products, services, and advertising; it will not be sold, rented, or otherwise disclosed to third parties for their marketing purposes.
  1. Children

We understand the importance of taking extra precautions to protect the privacy and safety of children. Accordingly, we do not knowingly collect, use, or disclose Personal Information from children under 13 or equivalent minimum age in the relevant jurisdiction without verifiable parental consent. If we learn that we have collected the Personal Information of a child under 13 or equivalent minimum age depending on jurisdiction without first receiving verifiable parental consent, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.  If you know that we have inadvertently collected any Personal Information about a child under 13, please contact us at privacy@prometheanworld.com


8.   Do Not Track (DNT)

Promethean does not track its users over time or across third party websites to provide targeted advertising, and therefore, does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.

  1. Links to Other Sites

Our Site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies, and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

  1. Changes to Our Privacy Policy

Any changes we may make to our Privacy Policy in the future will be posted on this page, and when appropriate or if we make a material change to the policy, we will notify you of those changes via the Site.
