What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Newsletter subscriptions

Certain visitors to School of Disruption’s website choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who fill out our contact form to provide a full name and email address. Those who wish to receive updates via email, we collect their emails. Once on our mailing list you may get occasional email updates containing news, tips and promotions which includes or may be classified as marketing. By subscribing, you are agreeing that you are happy for us to send these emails. Of course, you are free to unsubscribe at any time using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email.

In each case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with School of Disruption. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. School of Disruption uses cookies to help us identify and track visitors, their usage of our website, and their website access preferences. School of Disruption visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the website, with the drawback that certain features of School of Disruption may not function properly without the aid of cookies.


Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by School of Disruption and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.


How we use your personal information

We use the information that we collect generally to:
Communicate with you;
When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our services.
Improve and optimize our website (for example, by generating analytics about how our visitors browse and interact with School of Disruption, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).


Who we share your data with

We use Google Analytics to help us understand how our visitors use the website — 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.

We don’t share any personally identifying information publicly or with third-parties, except when required to by law.


How long we retain your data

We only retain collected information for as long as necessary to provide you with your requested service. What data we store, we’ll protect within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. School of Disruption has a SSL Certificate. This means that all data you enter into our site is therefore processed with the secure SSL certificate.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.


Privacy Policy changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, School of Disruption may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in our sole discretion. We encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to the Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
