Terms of Use

Effective From: 30 May 2021

The Terms of Use and Privacy Policy of Turkishaholic has been merged into one and updated to make things easier for the user to understand. By visiting turkishaholic.com and using any of our content, you agree to our Terms for using our services.

What is this website about?

Turkishaholic is a website where you can learn Turkish online via video courses and different types of lessons. While some of the content is provided free of charge, the rest of the content requires that you upgrade your membership to Premium (these are Bronze, Gold and Unlimited memberships). For more information regarding the membership types, please check out the documentation inside our User Manual.

What kind of data is collected from me?

When using our website, some small files called cookies are used to track your activity inside the website. This is similar to basic tracking technology. There are two types of cookies used by Turkishaholic.

The first one is created inside the turkishaholic.com website. This cookie is mandatory as it will store your login credentials, setting preferences, and account security. Please rest assured that none of the information we gather for your login credentials is shared with anyone. If you use any browser addon to block these cookies, you may not be able to log in to our website, so please disable any cookie-blocking addon while visiting our website.  

The second cookie is created outside of the turkishaholic.com website. This is a small file made by Google to track some basic information like your country, what type of device you are using (pc, tablet, smartphone), the time in which you visit our website, and finally which pages you visit while you’re at Turkishaholic. All other personal information is anonymized and hidden from both Google and Turkishaholic. We use Google’s Analytics service to see what kind of visitors visit our website and improve our content according to your needs. Just like with Turkishaholic’s cookies, we only use the data provided by Google to further improve our services and don’t share your information with anyone else.

Google’s cookies are not mandatory, but we request that you don’t block them. But if you don’t want to be included in Google’s Analytics data, you can opt-out by using Google’s Analytics Opt-Out browser add-on. For more information on Google’s Privacy and Terms, visit their page.   

Data collection from premium members

When you purchase a premium membership (these are Bronze, Gold, and Unlimited memberships) from our website, you will be required to fill in your payment information (credit card number, address, etc.) at the checkout page.
