Enterprise Data Sharing Consent questions
If you come to edX through your employer, school or as part of a bundled offering through a company that offers learner support services, edX may ask your permission to share data about your learning achievements with your employer, school or bundled learning support provider. This typically occurs when your employer, school or another company sponsors your enrollment in edX courses or programs.
By consenting to share your data, you allow edX to share information about your learning progress, such as when you enroll or complete, whether you finish specific parts of the course, the time you spend in edX courses, your final grade, or whether you earn a certificate. Consenting to share data with your course or program sponsor enables you to redeem a company, school (or other) benefit and enroll in the course through your sponsor’s gateway. If you do not consent, then you will not be able participate in the course or program through your employer, school or bundled learning support provider.
More about the consent process
- Your permission applies only to data from sponsored courses or programs and not to data from any edX courses or programs that you take on your own.
- Once you grant your permission to allow data to be shared with your employer, school or bundled learning support provider, you may withdraw your permission by fully un-enrolling from any courses or programs that are sponsored by that entity.
- If you decline to consent, that fact may be shared with your course or program sponsor.
What to do after you decline to consent
If you decline to consent, you can restart the enrollment process at any time, with the present course or program or with another course or program offered through your employer, school or bundled learning support provider.
If you have concerns about sharing your data, please contact your learning manager or administrator.
