Automatically Collected Information
This website uses web analytics tools (e.g. Google Analytics) to help us understand how users interact with the site. This helps us understand what we’re doing right, so that we can continually improve user experiences. Analytics tools use information strings placed on your computer commonly known as “cookies” to collect standard internet log and visitor behavior information. This is done in an anonymous way. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) is transmitted to Google and sometimes other vendors. This information is used to evaluate visitors’ interactions with the website. Analyses are conducted in the aggregate, meaning we look at statistics showing how groups of people tend to use the site, and do not try to identify individual users. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings on your browser.
The statistical analytics tools do not track or collect any personally identifiable information of visitors to our site. We never seek to link an IP address with the identity of a computer user. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with personally identifying information from any source. Identifying information you might provide in an opt-in form will be stored separately from web analytics traffic data.

We use respectable external mail list providers, such as MailChimp for our email distribution. MailChimp privacy policies are themselves quite strict, and it has been awarded TRUSTe’s Privacy Seal. Global Cognition is not responsible for the privacy practices of external email list providers. By using www.thinkeracademy.com, you consent to the transfer of such information to these services.
