EFFECTIVE DATE: MAY 23 2018
Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia and Defying Gravity, Inc. is committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our visitors to our web site. In particular, we want you to know that we are not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes. We just don’t do that sort of thing. We have a much bigger mission of making it easy for people to understand what’s possible, discover what they’re really hungry for, and live an inspired life of purpose. And we want to keep you informed. So we’ve provided lots of detailed information on when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it, how we keep it secure and more. You can read all about it below.
- How We Collect and Use Information
We may collect and store personal or other information that you voluntarily supply to us online while using the Site (e.g., while on the Site or in responding via email to a feature provided on the Site). This Site only contacts individuals who specifically request that we do so or in the event that they have signed up to receive our free newsletters, free trainings, or other free materials or have purchased any of our products. This Site collects personally identifying information from our users during online registration and online purchasing. Generally, this information includes name and e-mail address for registration to receive our free newsletters and name, postal address, and credit card information (including name, billing address, expiration date, etc.) when purchasing our products. All of this information is provided to us by you. You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to our Online Privacy Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate online through the Site. For example, we may collect information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, which allows us, among other things, to improve the delivery of our web pages to you and to measure traffic on the Site. We also may use a standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie” to enhance your experience with the Site. Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. By showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies help us deliver advertisements, identify how many unique users visit us, and track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the Site where you may have entered preference information before. The Site also may use web beacons (single-pixel graphic files also known as “transparent GIFs”) to access cookies and to count users who visit the Site or open HTML-formatted email messages. The Site may also use analytics to track your location and pages you visited (ex. Google Analytics https://analytics.google.com/).
We use the information we collect from you while you are using the Site in a variety of ways, including using the information to customize features. We also use it to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organizations and businesses. We use a third-party provider to deliver our emails. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our email communications. Unless you inform us in accordance with the process described below, we reserve the right to use all of the information collected from and about you while you are using the Site in any way and for any purpose, such as to enable us to provide you with information about products and services. If you do not wish your information to be used for these purposes, please send an email to the Online Privacy Coordinator at email@example.com requesting to be taken off any lists of information that may be used for these purposes.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online — for example on message boards, web logs, through email, or in chat areas — that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides us. We are not responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.
Be aware that we may occasionally release information about our visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law or to protect the rights, property or safety of users of the Site or the public.
Please also note that as our business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that we sell some or all of our assets, or one or more of our websites is acquired by another company, information about our users may be among the transferred assets.
- How Do We Store Your Information?
Your information is stored at the list server that delivers this Site’s newsletters. Your information can only be accessed by those who help manage those lists in order to deliver e-mail to those who would like to receive this Site’s newsletters.
All of the newsletters or emails that are sent to you by this Site include an unsubscribe link in them. You can remove yourself at any time from our newsletters or mailing list by clicking on the unsubscribe link that can be found in every communication that we send you.
We retain your personal data for the duration of your business relationship with us, and we hold your information only as long as necessary for each purpose we use it, unless we have obtained your consent to use for another or similar purpose.
