Other analytics that are recorded locally on this site include number of downloads of supplemental learning materials, video views including length of video viewed and logins and logouts. Some analytics are anonymous and some are tied to an individual member.
These analytics are solely used to improve membership offerings.
Many of the live online events will be recorded in order that members who were unable to attend live can watch them as well. By attending an event that is being recorded, you consent to having your participation captured if you decide to actively participate via video, audio and text chat your participation will be captured in the recording.
These recordings will be made available on the site. All recordings are stored on a third party video site called Vimeo. No recordings on Vimeo will be made public nor can someone embed the videos on another site. Videos will only work on this site and are blocked from being downloaded and shared elsewhere.
