Our mission at Nousium in developing the Resource University® service is to help individuals to be more productive and successful in their education endeavors. Our registered users (“Members”) share their identities, engage with their network, exchange knowledge, post and view relevant content. Content on some of our services is also visible to unregistered viewers (“Visitors”). We believe that our services allow our Members to effectively compete and achieve their full potential. The cornerstone of our business is to focus on our Members first.
We adhere to the following principles to protect your privacy:
We protect your personal information and will only provide it to third parties: (1) with your consent; (2) where it is necessary to carry out your instructions; (3) as reasonably necessary in order to provide our features and functionality to you; (4) when we reasonably believe it is required by law, subpoena or other legal process; or (5) as necessary to enforce our User Agreement or protect the rights, property, or safety of Resource University, our Members and Visitors, and the public.
