Our Commitment To Privacy
Your privacy is important to us, and we are committed to protecting it. We collect your information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. In connection with certain activities, such as registering for a course or signing up for free information (e-books, webinars, e-mail tips, etc.), we may ask you to provide some information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. Participation in these activities is completely optional. If you choose to engage in these activities, we may ask you to provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including ZIP code), e-mail address, telephone, credit card, and other personal information. Without the required information, you will not be able to participate in those activities. In all cases, we will only collect personal identification information from you if you voluntarily submit such information to us.
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 having received your permission. If you supply us with your contact information you may receive periodic e-mails, 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. You can also write us or call us at the contact information provided here. 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 site, anonymous statistical information is collected to help us administer the site and to understand and measure traffic patterns on the site so that we know which areas of our sites are favorites of our users, how users are finding our site, and what technologies are being used so that we may improve our site. This information is collected 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 using “cookies” during your visit. Most browsers are set to accept cookies, but you can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, so you can decide whether or not to accept it. (For some web pages that require an authorization, cookies are not optional. Users choosing not to accept cookies will probably not be able to access those pages.)
- We will release specific information about you or your account to comply with any valid legal inquiry or process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order.
- We will also release specific information in special cases, such as if there is an attempted breach of the security of the site, or a physical or property threat to you or others.
- We may also transfer user information, including personally identifiable information, in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, the sale of related assets or corporate division or other fundamental corporate change.
- 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 or carrying out the transactions.
