This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or place an order from educativetech.com or canvaslms.co.za (the “Site”). 


When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.” 


When using the Canvas Modules Builder app we collect:
– Contact information provided by the party signing up on behalf of the institution.

What we do not collect or store outside of the browser session in which the app is used:
– Any course content entered into the Canvas Modules Builder app.
– Any other personally identifiable information other than the unique user ID provided by Canvas to the app.

We collect Device Information using the following technologies: 

– “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org. – “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps. – “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site. 

Additionally, when you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site or make a payment through the site or otherwise, we collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, and phone number. We refer to this information as “Order Information.” However, we do not collect sensitive payment information like credit card numbers. We rely on reputable third party payment processors to securely handle your credit card details and any other sensitive payment information. 

If you opt into receiving any of our marketing communication, we also collect your provided contact information for that purpose. We refer to this information as “Marketing Information.”

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Order Information and Marketing information. 


We use the Order Information that we collect generally to offer any services ordered through the Site, Canvas Modules Builder app or otherwise (including contracting a trusted third party to process your payment information, arranging for services to be provided, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations). 
Additionally, we use this Order Information to:
Communicate with you; Screen our orders for potential risk or fraud; and
When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services; and Optimise and personalise your customer service experience.

We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimise our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns). 


We share your Personal Information with trusted and selected third parties to help us use your Personal Information, as described above. For example, we use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site–you can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights. 

Other than the exceptions described above, we never disclose Personal Information, at a fee or otherwise, to third parties outside of our organisation.

You can opt out of targeted advertising by contacting us via the channels provided on the website or clicking unsubscribe links on any of our marketing communication.


Appropriate security measures are in place to avoid your Personal Information from being accidentally erased, appropriated or accessed, altered or disclosed in a way which was not authorised by us. In addition, we limit access to your Personal Information to those authorised parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions, they are subject to a duty of confidentiality and secure passwords are required.

Employees with access to our database need this for maintenance, support, product development and analytics.

All communication between the end user and our servers is encrypted using SSL/TLS 2048 bit RSA keys.
