MINERVA MEDICAL SIMULATION, INC.
The "TL;DR" version:
(“tl;dr” is internet slang for “too long, didn’t read” – a totally reasonable reaction to privacy policies!)
We do not and will never sell or share any user data with 3rd parties; we believe doing so is fundamentally wrong. If you use Full Code as an individual, any data you provide to us will only ever be used to enhance your experience.
If you are using Full Code through a subscription paid-for by your school or employer — we do make your detailed usage and scoring available to your educator/employer. If you have questions about how that information is used, please ask your educator/employer.
The Full VERSION:

California Online Privacy Protection Act Notice:
On September 27, 2013, California enacted A.B. 370, amending the California Online Privacy Protection Act to require website operators like us to disclose how we respond to “Do Not Track Signals”; and whether third parties collect personally identifiable information about users when they visit us.
(1) We do not track users who do not interact with sharing functionality across the web, and therefore do not use “do not track” signals.
(2) We do not authorize the collection of personally identifiable information from our users for third party use through advertising technologies without separate member consent.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 also permits our customers who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to email@example.com. Please note that we are only required to respond to one request per customer each year.
