Collection of personal information

Our aim is to help people with their LeSS adoption. In order to achieve this goal, we work with a small network of people who conduct LeSS related trainings and events. We receive participants’ personal information from trainers and event organizers, and we trust that they have asked your permission before doing so. Please let us know immediately when that is not the case, and we will discuss it with the trainer.

We collect and store the following information: your first name, last name and email when you participate in a LeSS Course or LeSS-friendly Scrum Course. This may happen before or after the course dates, depending on when the trainer uploads course participants on the website. We will also store your company information if it is provided, as well as your city and country information based on the location of the course in which you have participated. On your user profile, you may update the location to reflect your actual place of residence. You can also add additional emails and links to your social profiles on Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook and Github.

We keep a record of all your courses and events attendance.

If you need to make payments on the website, we will store your billing information which includes billing name, address and VAT number if the payment is done though a company. We do not store credit card information, but we do keep a record of all payment transactions.

We also store all course materials provided by trainers which may contain photos or videos of participants. Trainers are expected to only upload data for which they have obtained explicit consent from participants.
