Since we first started in 2012 as a mission-driven nonprofit dedicated to improving access to high quality education and supporting academic research, edX has been committed to learner data privacy. We have always strived to be transparent with you, our learners, about the lifecycle of data on edX.
Using simpler, clearer language to describe our privacy practices;
Describing why and how your data is collected and used; and
Outlining ways to access, manage and control your information.
EdX is powered by our learners – all 16 million of you! Your dedication and hard work inspire us every day and your love of learning is what defines our global community of learners and partners. We are excited to share this update and to further ensure that your learning experience on edX.org is exceptional.
If you have any questions, you can reference this FAQ, found on the edX Help Desk, or you can contact edX support.
