Your privacy is important to us, and we are committed to protecting your personal information. In this policy, we are letting you know about the ways we collect and use your information, so you can make an informed choice regarding whether you will visit this website.
What Information Do We Collect?
We collect your name and email when you subscribe to our email newsletter. When you order a product or register for a program on this site, we collect your name, email address, mailing address, and phone number. Your credit card information and/or banking account information is held by our payment processors, PayPal and EventBrite, and we do not have access to those numbers.
How Do We Use Your Information?
We use your name and email to send you periodic emails, including email newsletters and occasional business announcements and updates. If you buy a product, we use your mailing address to ship you the product, and your phone number to process your transaction. We may use your phone number and/or email to contact you about your order.
How Do You Unsubscribe?
If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include the one-step unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.
How Do We Protect Your Information?
We use various security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information, including hosting your information using password-protected, secure services. The third party services we currently use are: ConvertKit, PayPal, Stripe, WePay, Ruzuku, Leadpages, Zoom, Google services, and AcuityScheduling. These services keep your information confidential, will not sell or share your information, and will not contact you directly except through separate agreements with you. We also use PayPal and EventBrite as our payment processors, who store your private financial information (credit card numbers and banking account information), as per their agreements with you. As we said above, we do not have access to your financial information on PayPal or EventBrite.
We will not trade, share, or sell your information to any other company without disclosing that information to you, except that we do share your information with specific third parties who assist us in taking care of you (the companies listed above). These third parties all agree to keep your information confidential. We will also release your information as required by law and if necessary to protect our legal rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding or court order.
Circumstances may arise where we may decide to sell, buy, merge, or otherwise reorganize our business in the United States or elsewhere, or where we may decide to share, rent, buy, or sell business assets for reorganizing, developing, or expanding our business. It is our policy to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions. If the company assets or our entire company is acquired, then the lists of personally identifiable information and other contact information will likely be one of the assets acquired.
Other Legal Information
We do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. This website, products and services are not directed to people who are under 13 years of age. Please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a parent whose child has provided us with personally identifying information, and we will delete such information from our files.
California Residents Privacy Rights
If you are a California resident, under “Shine the Light law” (Cal Civ Code Section 1798.83) you can request the disclosure of certain personal information that we have disclosed to third parties for marketing purposes in the last year. To make a request, contact us at email@example.com.
European Union / Switzerland Residents Privacy Rights
The European Union enacted the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which gives individuals in the EU/EEA and Switzerland the right to correct, update, review, or delete their personally identifiable data. If you would like to make such a request, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are located in the United States and any data you submit will be transferred to the United States. If you are an European Union resident and you are dissatisfied with how we have managed a complaint, you are entitled to contact your local data protection authority.
Our data retention policy is that members of the EU have control over us deleting your data; in other words, we will keep your data until you tell us to delete it. For tax purposes, we are required to keep the names and other financial and transactional information about anyone who makes a purchase for six years after any transaction. For legal compliance purposes, we are required to keep the files regarding any dispute as long as the dispute is pending.
