We at OSP International LLC ("OSP", "we", "us", or "our") take data protection seriously. Your privacy is important to us. We adhere to legal and regulatory requirements around data privacy in jurisdictions where we operate. The use of OSP Internet pages, as well as its products and services, is only possible with the provision of some personal data. Therefore, if you wish to use certain services via our website, processing your personal data could become necessary. We are strongly committed to protecting the privacy of your personal data. We encourage you to read this Privacy Notice carefully. Please contact us with any questions or concerns about our privacy practices.
On OSP websites, you can buy products, access our exam resources, and subscribe to our e-newsletters. This Notice outlines our practices to help you make decisions about the personal data you provide anywhere on our websites.
By means of this Privacy Notice, we want to explain what personal data we collect about you, how we process the data, and your rights as the owner of your data.
The following are the definitions used in this Privacy Notice:
4. Purposes for Processing Personal Data

5. Sharing of Personal Data
When we share your information with third parties, we require them to uphold the same data protection standards that we at OSP use.
OSP may decide to sell, buy, merge, or otherwise reorganize its business. If that occurs, you will be notified via email or a prominent notice on our website of any ownership change and any changes in the use of your personal data. These types of transactions may involve disclosing personal data to prospective or actual buyers. We seek appropriate protection for personal data in these types of transactions.
In addition to the situations described above, we may use and disclose visitor information in particular instances when we have reason to believe disclosing this information is necessary to investigate, identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interfering with our rights or property or the rights or property of OSP, other website visitors, or anyone else. We may disclose visitor information when subpoenaed, for government investigations, and when we otherwise believe in good faith that the law requires it.
6. Legal Basis for Processing
The following list describes our legal basis for the processing of personal data:
● Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by OSP or a third party.
We do not market our products and services to individuals under the age of 18 (“Children”). If you are a parent or guardian, and you know that a child has provided us with personal data, please contact us so that we may provide you with the information and remove it from our system(s).
8. Security of Processing
As the Controller, OSP has implemented technical and organizational measures to ensure personal data processed remains secure. The measures include:
9. Data Breach
We take steps to secure your data properly. If we suspect a data breach, we will promptly engage a data forensics specialist. The specialist will determine if a breach occurred and what data, if any, has been compromised. In the event of a personal data security breach, the supervisory authority and/or you will be notified.
The information you provide to us may be transferred to and stored in countries outside of the one where you reside or your economic area, such as the European Economic Area. The most common reason we may transfer your data is that our website is hosted in a country or place different from your location. Staff operating outside your country or region of residence may also process your personal information. Processing your data this way is likely to occur when we use a supplier. For example, the United States is home to our payment processing provider, so all user data is transferred to the US for processing.
If we transfer or store your data outside your country or area in which you reside, we will ensure that your data is protected, both in transit and when it is stored and processed.
11. Data Retention, Statistics, and Cookies
The criteria used to determine the retention period of personal data is the respective statutory retention period within the local jurisdiction. After the expiration of that period, personal data shall be securely deleted if it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract, the initiation of a contract, or in relation to other legal proceedings.
To provide our services to you and gather statistical information regarding the use of our website by our advertisers, we may collect information about your computer. Such information will not identify you personally – it is statistical data about our visitors and their site use. This statistical data does not identify any personal details whatsoever.
We may gather information about your general Internet use by using a cookie file. Where used, these cookies are downloaded to your computer automatically. Cookies are stored on the hard drive of your computer. They help us improve our website and the service we provide. All web browsers can decline cookies. You may configure your web browser to decline the cookies.
12. Your Data Rights
As a Data Subject, you have rights that you can ascertain at any time at no cost. You can request us to provide you with the data we have collected about you. If you think the data is incorrect, you can request to have the data corrected or supplemented. You can request a copy of your data in a machine-readable format. You have the right to withdraw your consent. You have the right to be “forgotten”, which means you can ask us to delete all personal data we collected about you unless the law prohibits us from doing so. You have the right to be notified of a data breach if that breach exposes your personal data. If such a data breach happens, we will notify authorities about that. If you think processing your personal data breaks the law, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.
13. Your Contractual Obligation to Provide Personal Data and the Possible Consequences of Failure to Provide Such Data
The provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g., tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g., information on the contractual partner). To conclude a contract, for example, when you buy a service or product from us, you may sometimes need to provide us with your personal data. If you do not provide us with your personal data, we won’t be able to conclude the contract with you.
14. Use of Our Forum

Forum posts that do not follow these guidelines will be deleted.
By submitting your post to our forum, you give OSP International LLC permission to republish your text (using proper author attribution) through articles, videos, other websites, blogs, newsletters, eBooks, print publications, Twitter, Xing, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Facebook. We aim to give each forum post as much visibility as possible because we feel that the information you post in our forum should be shared with everyone who is preparing for a PMI® exam. By providing your personal data in the forum, you understand that your post, including any personal data you choose to share publicly (e.g., your name, avatar image, phone number, email address, or other), is indexed by search engines, such as Google, and becomes publicly available to everybody even without us republishing it. If later, you want to remove your personal data from our forum, you can ask us to edit, anonymize or delete your post. Please note that public information taken from our forum by public and unaffiliated services (e.g., Google or other search engines) may continue to display your previously submitted information, including private data, even though we updated such information in our forum.
15. Automatic Decision-Making and Profiling
We do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
We may transfer our rights under this Privacy Notice where we reasonably believe your rights will not be affected.
If any court or competent authority finds that a provision of this Privacy Notice (or part of any provision) is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, that provision or part-provision will, to the extent required, be deemed to be deleted. However, the validity and enforceability of the other provisions of the Privacy Notice will not be affected.
Unless otherwise agreed, no delay, act, or omission by a party in exercising any right or remedy will be deemed a waiver of that or any other right or remedy.
