ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to and collect information that you voluntarily give us or third party companies we work with.
We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order.
In the event in which we sell our company or merge with another company, the information we collected about you is considered an asset and can be transferred to the company which buys our assets or merges with us.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the Website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way.
We will retain your personal data only for the period of time necessary to fulfill the specific purposes for which the data were collected or further processed, if for compatible purposes.
THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
In the course of operating the Website and/or interacting with you, we will collect (and/or receive) the following types of information.
A. Personally Identifying Information
(i) Personal Information.
We collect information about you when you sign up to receive any of our newsletters, respond to a survey, register for a class, or purchase any product or service sold through our Website or by us offline. We collect personal information about yourself, such as your name, address, email address, and phone number. We do not collect any personal information from you when you use the Website unless when you provide such information voluntarily, such as by registering, sending us an email, signing up for a newsletter or responding to a survey.
(ii) Billing Information.
When you purchase a product or service, you will be required to provide certain information in addition to the Personal Information noted above. Such information may include a debit card number, credit card number, expiration date, billing address, activation codes, and similar information.
(iii) Other Data Obtained through Data-Append Services. We may work with one or more data-modeling and/or data–append services, such as Experian, which allow us to learn more about you from other websites, based on the information you have permitted us to gather directly (including your email address).
B. Non-Personally Identifying Information
(i) From Cookies. Information that we collect using “cookie” technology. Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information that a user’s device (computer, tablet or mobile) downloads when it visits a website. They allow the site to “remember” your computer, but not specifically who is using it, and improve your user experience. By associating the identification numbers in the cookies with other customer information when, for example, you log-in to the site, then we know that the cookie information relates to you.
We may use both session and persistent cookies on the Website; session cookies expire at the end of a particular visit to our Website, while persistent cookies (also called stored cookies) remain active until you disable them through your browser settings, or until a pre-set expiration date.
If you do not want us to place a cookie on your hard drive, you may be able to turn that feature off on your computer or mobile device. Please consult your Internet browser’s documentation for more information.
(ii) From Other Sources. We also may collect or receive information from third parties, such as Facebook and/or other third-party social media sites with which you willingly shared your information and which willingly share this information with us to help us better advertise to you.
HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We will use your personal data:
(i) to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us.
(ii) to analyze your preferences and habits and to anticipate your needs based on our analysis of your profile. We may then combine your personal data – especially your preferences, interests, purchase history, readership – collected online and/or offline to analyze your behavior, preferences and trends and to serve you more tailored assistance. Data may be aggregated with other information related individually to you or to other customers with similar profiles and be used for statistical purposes. Your data are constantly enriched with information collected during your interactions with us.
(iii) to offer you our marketing services including:
- to send you – by e-mail, postal mail, and/or through other online channels (e.g. social media), based on your choices and approval – our marketing communications about us and our products, services, promotions, ideas, and to contact you for customer satisfaction purposes.
- we may also send you communications tailored to what we believe may be of interest to you and to benefit from a more personalized sale service (e.g. recommended books, courses, workshops etc.)
We do not intentionally collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If we become aware that we have collected personally identifiable information from a user of our Website who is under the age of 13, we will remove that child’s personal information from our files. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided Personal Information to us, please contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our database.
