When you decide to use our Website for authoring or taking courses, or when you make your first purchase on our Site, you will be asked to create an account. By creating an account, the system will remember your personal and purchase information and the checkout process on future purchases will be fast, easy and always completely secure.

Then during checkout on your next purchase, just login and the system will take care of the rest. At all times, your personal information is accessible to you to review, edit, or update as necessary by accessing the "Personal Locker" section of the Website.
We request information from the user on our order form when making a purchase. Here is where a user must provide their contact information, like name and shipping address, and financial information, like credit card number and expiration date. This information is used for billing purposes and to fill the customer's order. If we have difficulty processing an order, this contact information is used to communicate with the customer.
Rukuku.com's database tracks the traffic throughout our site. This information is used to compile overall statistics and is not recorded at an individual level. This includes IP (internet protocol) addresses, browser type, ISP (internet service provider), referring pages, exit pages, platform type, date & time stamp, and number and position of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate. The statistics help us decide which products and services best serve our members and guests.
Rukuku.com uses aggregate information from demographic surveys, traffic patterns and IP addresses to customize our site. Aggregate information is occasionally shared with partners and third parties for purposes such as planning or executing advertising or promotions. We do not share any personally identifiable information.
Rukuku.com gives you access to third party partners to provide you with certain services that are detailed below. Rukuku.com will provide that third party with your transaction information and then that third party will collect additional information if needed to provide you with the requested service, such as outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services.
We reserve the right to transfer any and all information that we collect from users of the site to a third party in the event of any merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of the assets or stock (including without limitation in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings) relating to Rukuku, Inc.
Catalog, Newsletters & Other Communications
If a user wishes to subscribe to our catalog, newsletter, etc., we ask for contact information such as name, street address and e-mail address to provide these communications. Because we respect our users' privacy, we provide a way to opt-out of these communications. Please see the choice and optout section below.
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send you an email. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications, though you can deactivate your account. However, these communications are not promotional in nature.
Rukuku.com takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via our website, this information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration or order form asks users to enter sensitive information, e.g. credit card number or social security number, that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry – Secure Socket Layers (SSLs). While on a secure page, such as our order form, a lock icon appears on the bottom of your Web browser. When you are not on a secure page, no lock icon will appear. In addition, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment under restricted access.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, send us an e-mail at email@example.com for more info.
Supplementation of Information
In order for Rukuku.com to properly fulfill its obligation to our customers, it may be necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from third party sources such as our affiliated websites.

When a user makes a purchase from any of these companies, the companies may collect and share that purchase information with us so we can tailor the site to our users' preferences.
Established members will occasionally receive information on products, services, special offers and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users, we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see our choice and opt-out below.

If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code, phone, e-mail or postal address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we provide a way to correct, update or delete that user's personally identifiable information provided to us. For security reasons, every time such a change has been made, the user will be sent an email with a request to confirm the changes.
