What information we collect and how we use it
Parsel collects the following information about you when you provide it to us and use our services:
Account and Profile Information
When you sign up, create a profile, set your preferences, or pay for your subscription or courses, Parsel collects your name, username, password, email, address, professional background, and any profile pictures you choose to upload.
We use this information to correctly identify you, communicate with you, and provide you with customer support. We also use this contact information for accounting and administrative purposes, for transactional emails including app and billing notifications, and to notify you about new features, courses, and discounts that are appropriate for your learning needs.
As you learn on myLearn, you may upload the notes you make while learning, the choices
you make on practice and diagnostic tests, and the questions and comments that you post
on the forums.
We store this content and may use it to notify you about new features, courses, and
discounts that are appropriate for your learning needs.
