This Privacy Policy also goes over how you can exercise your privacy rights and choices. This Privacy Policy applies when you access or use the content, services and tools offered through our Platform (‘Bosch Digital Services’), or otherwise interact with us. Your access to our Platform and use of Bosch Digital Services is also governed by our Terms of Use.

2. Overview
Personal information refers to any information that relates to an identified or identifiable individual. We and our third-party processors (like Teachable) will handle your personal information both as a ‘controller’ or as a ‘processor’ of the personal information.

Bosch Digital is the controller of personal information that it collects and processes in connection with the use of the Platform and the licensing of Bosch Digital Services. This includes personal information that you provide to us when you create an account on the Platform, subscribe to a Bosch Digital plan, or purchase a license to THE ROCKET METHOD course or any other item or service offered on the Platform.
