Legalese About Yer Privacy
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). EmpathToPower.com only contacts individuals who specifically request that we do so or in the event that they have signed up to receive our free newsletters or have purchased one of our products. EmpathToPower.com collects personally identifying information from our users during email newsletter submission, 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 when purchasing our products. All of this information is provided to us by you.
We also collect and store information in that is generated automatically as you navigate online through the Site. For example, we collect information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, which allows us, among other things, to make sure our pages load quickly for you no matter what your device is, and measure traffic on the Site. We also 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. Unfortunately they do not involve oats or chocolate. But, by showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies help us deliver content, identify how many unique users visit us, and track user trends and patterns. Which is pretty sweet, much like a cookie in real life! 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. Handy, no? The Site uses 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.
You may request access to download, correct and/or delete personal data we have stored on file for you. This data request also entitles you to move it to another processor for use. To do so, please provide us with your name and email address that you believe is stored and we’ll pull whatever data we have for you in about 2-3 business days. Please send the above information to webmaster @ EmpathToPower.com and we’ll be happy to help!
Data stored on our email marketing service is held until you unsubscribe or we manually remove it per your request. Some data may be retained as required by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may also retain cached or archived copies of information about you for a certain period of time.
As part of the GDPR and living in the European Union, you have a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. Hopefully, it doesn’t come to such heavy-handed tactics and we can communicate with open minds and hearts!
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 and improve user experience. Data that you’ve actively shared with us (name, email, etc.) and your online use of our site is only shared with one third party service provider, our newsletter provider ActiveCampaign, to help us communicate with you about services, offerings and some plain ol’ human love language. We also track engagement with our site and courses that is attached to your stored personal data that you’ve given us. It’s nothing nefarious, just a way for us to understand how you use our site and allows us to tailor information and offerings based on your interests. This tool also helps us focus limited resources to improve your experience! NONE of this information is sold or given to outside entities beyond ActiveCampaign because we value you as humans and hope to be treated the same.
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 cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information, though we do our best to populate our community with other awesome people like you who wouldn’t do that shit.
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. Thankfully, that hasn’t happened so let’s all keep it cool, k?
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.
