All of us at (“Docent”), as well as Workprint Innovations, LLC (“Workprint”), and their affiliates, representatives, and Website partners (collectively referred to hereinafter as “Workprint,” “Docent,” “we,” “our,” or “us”), are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy while using and any of our mobile or desktop applications (collectively “Website”) services (“Services”), which includes, but is not limited to: storage, access, emails, newsletters, blogs, promotions, surveys, and any other exciting thing we offer or provide.  Please read the following to understand our practices regarding personal information and personally identifiable data (“personal data”) and how they affect you when utilizing our Website and Services.  By using the Website and our Services, you consent to the collection and use of the information discussed below and this Privacy Policy. Docent may change this Privacy Policy from time to time.  Therefore, you should make sure you check the Privacy Policy occasionally for changes (the latest revision date will be listed at the bottom of the webpage). By voluntarily providing us with personal data, you acknowledge and agree that you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Information Collected By Docent

Docent gathers two types of information: (1) information that users provide through voluntary registration and submissions to our Website and Services; and (2) aggregated tracking information derived from by tallying page views throughout the Website.  The information we collect and how we use it is detailed further below.

IP addresses

Docent logs the IP addresses and geo-location of the users accessing the Website, but we do not attempt to link these IP addresses to a user’s personally identifiable information. In other words, while we know what Website areas a particular computer accesses, we do not try to determine the identity of the person using the computer. We collect IP addresses for Website security and to help us understand how people use our Website so that we can analyze trends, administer the Website, collect broad demographic information, and hopefully improve our Website user’s experiences.

Personal information

Docent collects information about those who register with the Website and for our Services.  Therefore, we ask for your name, email address, and other personal information when you register with our Website or for Services.  To receive some of our exclusive Services or post a message on the Website’s discussion boards, you may need to register with the Website.  Additionally, we may ask for information as a condition to participate in certain contests or promotions sponsored by Docent or our Website partners.  For certain Services, we may request credit card or other payment account information, which we maintain in encrypted form on secure servers.  Optional surveys are another way we hope to gather information to make a better Website and provide better Services.  We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers, and Website partners; however, we do not share specific information that would lead to the identity of a particular individual, and whenever practical or necessary we will give you the opportunity to opt out of combining such information.

Recommendation email

If you use our Services to forward content from the Website to a friend, you may be required to provide us with both your email address and your friend’s email address. We will automatically send your friend a single email, which will either have the content attached or contain a link to the content, as well as invite your friend to visit and register with our Website. We will not use these email addresses for any other purpose.

Usage tracking

Docent tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Docent does break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser).

Docent may track and catalog the search terms, which users enter in our search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine what areas of the Website users like and do not like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us build a better Website and Services for you.


Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your computer’s hard drive or mobile device. We may place a text file called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer.  A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites.  The cookie itself does not contain personal information.  The only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself.   

We collect information from cookies in much the same way, and for many of the same reasons, as we collect information through IP addresses. We use cookies to help us identify the types of content on the Website that are of most interest to our users. This allows us to provide more relevant content and enhance each user’s experience on the Website. Because we do not collect personally identifiable information through cookies, your privacy and security are not compromised when you accept a cookie from Docent.

We may also use cookies to remember the password(s) associated with a particular computer or mobile device to eliminate the need for you to keep re-entering them each time you come back to the Website.  Additionally, we use cookies to better target the types of advertising on the Website that we think will be of most interest to particular users (based on the content accessed by their computers).  Our advertising system delivers a one-time cookie to better track ad impressions and click rates.  You are advised that advertisers on our Website may also serve you their own cookies, when you click through to their separate websites. We do not control, nor do we have access to, any of the information that they may collect from your access and/or use of their websites.

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you have set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use the Website. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to take full aDocentntage of certain customized content on the Website.

User Communications

When you send email or other communication to Docent, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests, and improve our services.


Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of thirteen (13) years-old without requesting parental consent.

Information Security

We are committed to ensuring your information is secure.  In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.  Docent operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems.

Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary.  These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.  All of your information is housed in secure, access-restricted areas.    Only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our users.  We restrict access to personal information to our employees, contractors and agents, who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, or improve our Services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to termination, as well as criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

Data Integrity

In accordance with this Privacy Policy and/or any specially issued privacy notice, Docent processes personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected.  We periodically review our data collection, storage, and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store, and process the personal information needed to provide or improve our Services. We try to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current; however, we must also depend on our users to update or correct their personal information to reflect any changes.

Accessing and Updating Personal Information

Docent makes good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information, correct inaccurate information, and delete such information upon request, unless such information must be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. Some of our Services require different procedures to access, correct, or delete a user’s personal information. Users must identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed before Docent will process any request to access, correct, or remove personal information.  We reserve the right to decline requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical.  In any case where personal information access and correction is reasonably permissible, we perform this service free of charge.

Opt-Out Policy

We give users options wherever necessary and practical, such choices include: (1) opting not to register with our Website or to receive certain Services; and (2) opting not to participate in certain interactive Website areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any personally identifiable information from our users.  You can decline to submit personal information to any of our Services, in which case Docent may not be able to provide those Services to you.


Some of our Services are offered in connection with other websites.  Therefore, our Website may contain links to other websites.  Docent does not exercise control over these linked websites.  In some instances, we will share demographic information on our users with websites that link to our Website; but this information is shared on an aggregate basis only.  Any personal information that you provide to other websites that is delivered to Docent, in connection with one of our Services, will be processed in accordance with our Privacy Policy.  Please remember that these linked websites may have different privacy practices, so we encourage you to read their privacy policies as well.


Docent regularly reviews its compliance with this Privacy Policy. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Policy or Docent’s treatment of personal information, please contact us at Docent at or General Counsel for Docent’s, Privacy Policy, P.O. Box 272362, Boca Raton, Florida 33427.  Docent’s policy is to respond promptly to any inquiries or complaints received from users.  Furthermore, we will cooperate with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that cannot be resolved between Docent and an individual.

Choices for Personal Information

When you sign up for Services that require registration, we ask you to provide personal information.  If we use the information you provide in a manner different than the purpose for which it was collected or stated in this Privacy Policy, then we will ask for your consent prior to such use.  If we propose to use personal information for any purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy and/or in a specific service notice, we will offer you an effective way to opt out of the use of personal information for those other purposes. We will not collect or use sensitive information for purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy and/or in the specific service notices, unless we have obtained your prior consent.

Information Sharing

Docent shares personal information with other companies or individuals outside of Docent in the following limited circumstances: (1) we have your consent; (2) we receive your opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information; (3) we provide such information to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, or other trusted businesses or persons for the purpose of processing personal information on our behalf; (4) we require that these parties agree to process such information based on our instructions and in compliance with our Privacy Policy, as well as any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures; (5) we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, and/or enforce Docent’s Terms or Privacy Policy to investigate, detect, prevent, or address fraud, security, technical issues, or protect against imminent harm to the rights, property, or safety of Docent, our  users, or the public as required or permitted by law; and (6) if Docent becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of Docent’s assets, we will provide notice before personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.
