How and Why We Collect Information
We collect your information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. If you register for a course, a membership site, or a free training series, for example, the information is used to enroll you in the program, enroll you in newsletters, track your preferences, and keep you informed about products. As a visitor to our site, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information.
If you opt-in to receive any free training series, download a free product, register for a webinar, seminar, or live event, or purchase any product sold by us or promoted by us, you will automatically be subscribed to our free newsletter. If you do not wish to receive this free newsletter, you may opt-out at any time. We include an unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email we send. If you have any trouble opting out, please email us and we will manually remove you from our email list(s).
In connection with other activities, such as those described above, we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to, however, we may ask that you provide us with personal information such as your first and last name, mailing address (including ZIP code), email address, telephone, credit card, and other personal information. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
In all cases, we will collect personal identification information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. We will also tell you how we use your information or if we share it with another party. Except as otherwise provided in this policy, we will never intentionally disclose any personal identification information about you as an individual user to any third party without your permission.
If you supply us with your contact information you may receive periodic emails, mailings or calls from us with information on new products and services, important issues, or upcoming events. If you wish to be removed from any postal, email, phone, or other lists, please let us know by emailing us. Please provide us with your exact name, email address, mailing address, and phone. We will be sure your name is removed from the appropriate lists immediately.
When you use our sites, we or our authorized technology services provider may also collect certain technical and routing information from you to facilitate your use of the site and its services. We use this information to administer the site and to understand and measure traffic patterns so we know which areas of our sites are favorites of our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so we may continually improve. This information is collected in an aggregate form without identifying you or any user individually. We may use this aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing, or similar promotional purposes.
This data is often tracked by us or our technology services provider by using “cookies” during your visit. A cookie is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card and enables us to record your passwords, purchases, and preferences. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. (For some web pages that require authorization, cookies are not optional. Users choosing not to accept cookies will probably not be able to access those pages.)
There are affiliate links in some of our posts, which means we may earn a small commission if you click the link and proceed with a purchase. It is fully disclosed per post, where applicable. We only recommend products or services we personally use and recommend.
We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.
Further, the information you enter when making a purchase or an online donation will be shared with payment processors, financial gateways, and your credit card company to authorize credit card payments. Such information may also be shared with necessary third parties solely for the purpose of carrying out transactions. Please note if you give out personal information online through a discussion board or posting site, the information can be collected and used by third parties. Although we strive to protect our users’ privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of the information you post in these forums. You disclose such information at your own risk.
