INFORMATION I COLLECT ABOUT YOU
When you access the Website, I will learn certain information about you during your visit.
Information You Provide To Me. The Website provides various places for users to provide information. I collect information that users provide by filling out forms on the Website, communicating with me via contact forms, responding to surveys, search queries on my search feature, providing comments or other feedback, and providing information when ordering a product or service via the Website.
I use the information you provide to me to deliver the requested product and/or service, to improve the overall performance, and to provide you with offers, promotions, and information.
Information I Collect Through Automatic Data Collection Technology. As you navigate through the Website, I may use automatic data collection technologies including Google Analytics to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns. This will generally include information about your location, your traffic pattern through my website, and any communications between your computer and my Website. Among other things, I will collect data about the type of computer you use, your Internet connection, your IP address, your operating system, and your browser type.
The information I collect automatically is used for statistical data and will not include personal information. I use this data to improve my Website and my service offerings. To the extent that you voluntarily provide personal information to me, my systems will associate the automatically collected information with your personal information.
Similar to other commercial websites, the website utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” and server logs to collect information about how my site is used. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at my site, and the websites visited just before and just after my own, as well as your IP address.
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
I reserve the right to use technological equivalents of cookies, including social media pixels. These pixels allow social media sites to track visitors to outside websites so as to tailor advertising messages users see while visiting that social media website. I reserve the right to use these pixels in compliance with the policies of the various social media sites.
I do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.
If you choose to correspond with me through email, I may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and my responses. I provide the same protections for these electronic communications that I employ in the maintenance of information received online, mail, and telephone. This also applies when you register for my website, sign up through any of my forms using your email address or make a purchase on this site. For further information see the email policies below.
I am committed to keeping your e-mail address confidential. I do not sell, rent, or lease my subscription lists to third parties, and will not disclose your email address to any third parties except as allowed in the section titled Disclosure of Your Information.
I will maintain the information you send via e-mail in accordance with applicable federal law.
In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, all e-mails sent from me will clearly state who the e-mail is from and provide clear information on how to contact the sender. In addition, all e-mail messages will also contain concise information on how to remove yourself from my mailing list so that you receive no further e-mail communication from me.
My emails provide users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from me by reading the unsubscribe instructions located at the bottom of any e-mail they receive from me at any time.
Users who no longer wish to receive my blog posts, newsletter, or promotional materials may opt-out of receiving these communications by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the e-mail.
HOW and WHY I COLLECT INFORMATION
I collect your information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. If you register to download a book or resources, sign up for my newsletter, and/or purchase a product from me, I collect your information. I use this information to track your preferences and to keep you informed about the products and services you have selected to receive and any related products and/or services. As a visitor to this Website, you can engage in most activities without providing any personal information. It is only when you seek to download resources and/or register for services that you are required to provide information.
If you are outside the European Union and opt to receive any free resources, participate in any free training programs, register for a webinar, register for a live event, register for a seminar, or purchase any products sold by me on this Website, I will automatically enroll you to receive my free email newsletter. If you do not wish to receive this newsletter, you can unsubscribe anytime. I include an “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of every email I send. If you ever have trouble unsubscribing, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting to unsubscribe from future emails.

If you do not wish to receive this newsletter, you can unsubscribe anytime. I include an “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of every email I send. If you ever have trouble unsubscribing, you can send an email to email@example.com requesting to unsubscribe from future emails.
HOW DO I USE the INFORMATION THAT YOU PROVIDE to US?
I use personal information for purposes of presenting my Website and its contents to you, providing you with information, providing you with offers for products and services, providing you with information about your subscriptions and products, carrying out any contract between you and me, administering my business activities, providing customer service, and making available other items and services to my customers and prospective customers.
From time-to-time, I may use the information you provide to me to make you offers to purchase products and services provided by third parties in exchange for a commission to be paid to me by such third parties. Should you opt to take part in such promotions, the third parties will receive your information.
From time-to-time, I may use the information you provide to me to display advertisements to you that are tailored to your personal characteristics, interests, and activities.
DISCLOSURE of YOUR INFORMATION
As a general rule, I do not sell, rent, lease or otherwise transfer any information collected whether automatically or through your voluntary action.
I may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when I, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of my legal rights or when compelled by a court or other governmental entity to do so.
HOW DO I PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION and SECURE INFORMATION TRANSMISSIONS?
I employ commercially reasonable methods to ensure the security of the information you provide to us and the information I collect automatically. This includes using standard security protocols and working only with reputable third-party vendors. Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, I request that you do not send private information to me by email. However, doing so is allowed, but at your own risk. Some of the information you may enter on my website may be transmitted securely via a secure medium known as Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL. Credit Card information and other sensitive information is never transmitted via email.
I may use software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of my site, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, I use software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
VISITORS’ GDPR RIGHTS
If you are within the European Union, you are entitled to certain information and have certain rights under the General Data Protection Regulation. Those rights include:
I will retain any information you choose to provide to us until the earlier of: (a) you asking me to delete the information, (b) my decision to cease using my existing data providers, or (c) I decide that the value in retaining the data is outweighed by the costs of retaining it.
You have the right to request access to your data that I store and the rights to either rectify or erase your personal data.
You have the right to seek restrictions on the processing of your data.
You have the right to object to the processing of your data and the right to the portability of your data.
To the extent that you provided consent to my processing of your personal data, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based upon consent that occurred prior to your withdrawal of consent.
You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority that has jurisdiction over issues related to the General Data Protection Regulation.
I require only the information that is reasonably required to enter into a contract with you. I will not require you to provide consent for any unnecessary processing as a condition of entering into a contract with me.
YOUR GDPR RIGHTS SUMMARIZED
Under the new regulations, your rights pertaining to your data include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Only data which is necessary for the operation of its stated intention must be retained, and only for as long as is required.
- Consent from the data subject must be clearly and unambiguously given, in order for us to retain your data and use it for anything beyond operational purposes. This means marketing consent must be clearly and separately obtained; pre-checked opt-out style check-boxes will no longer be acceptable – consent must be a conscious action by the user.
- Subjects whose data is being retained must be made aware within 72 hours of any breach of the website/company’s data security system.
- Data subjects must have a right to access and digitally export all of their held data, free of charge, within 30 days of any such request.
- Data subjects should be empowered with the knowledge of how data is being used. They can request its deletion if wished, and demand the “right to be forgotten” by the organization – this must be complied with if the data is not necessary for the operation of its original intention or fulfillment of a service contract, or its retention is not considered to be “in the public interest”.
- Each company/website must have its own policy in place for ensuring the enforcement and working practice of this legislation.
This is only an outline of the new legislation, which briefly summarizes your rights as a subject of data retention, though is currently only legally enforceable if you are a citizen of the EU.
