What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors submit or leave comments on the Beyond the EDGE Training website we collect the data shown in the forms along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: 


If you upload images or documents to the application, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included.  Beyond the EDGE will not sell or share these images in the public domain.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites

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.

Who we share your data with

All collected data is only utilized internally by the Beyond the EDGE Training team to optimize the operation of the application and to improve the user experience.  Beyond the EDGE does not intend to sell or exchange user data with 3rd parties, any external agencies or internet service providers.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata may be 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, or application, we will 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.   This information will also be held indefinitely.  

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments on the site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us.

You can request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obligated to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
