Please refer to the Opentute common definitions.
Excepting trials, demonstration portals and the Opentute Academy portal, Opentute does not operate or manage licensed Private Portals, though as part of the Licensing agreement we will provide upgrades, backups and maintain security certificates (for *.opentute.com), as required. Where a license holder does not use the *.opentute.com SSL, they are required to maintain an SSL security certificate for custom domain names.
As used in this policy, “Personal Data” means information that would allow a party to identify you such as, for example, your name, address or location, telephone number or email address.
Please take a moment to read the following to learn more about our information practices, including what type of Personal Data is gathered, how the Personal Data is used and for what purposes, to whom we disclose Personal Data, and how we safeguard your Personal Data.
Our privacy practices may vary among the countries in which we operate to reflect local practices and legal requirements (“Applicable Data Protection Laws”) but in general we comply with the GDPR (EU’s General Data Protection Regulation).
According to Applicable Data Protection Laws, you may be entitled to know the identity of your “Data Controller” i.e. the legal entity which determines why and how your personal data is processed. In most cases, this will be Open Tute Pty Ltd.

Within Opentute, our most important asset is our relationship with our user community. We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity, and security of the Personal Data of our users.
