Privacy Policy

The following is a crucial document that outlines the Privacy Policy for Deb Pearson, LLC d/b/a SelfDiscoveryCircle.com (“SDC”) website, underscoring our commitment to safeguarding your privacy.

 

 

Your Privacy

 

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. We use your personal information to improve our services, respond to your inquiries, and send you promotional materials. We have implemented security measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use. You agree to these policies by virtue of using our website in a way that leads to you providing us with personal information.

 

 

State Law & Accompanying Rights

 

If you wish to assert any State rights, you can use our Contact information to reach us at any time. We will guide you through the process and Ensure your rights are respected.Under our Terms of Service and Conditions of Use, children under 18 are not allowed to use our website or access our services. We do not intend to offer products or services to minors.

 

 

Collection of Personal Information

 

When you visit our website, we may log the IP address used to access it, along with the dates and times of access. This information is used for trend analysis, website administration, user movement tracking, and gathering broad demographic information for internal use, such as statistical assessments and website improvement. Importantly, any recorded IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

 

Other information may be collected as well, which is common practice for most websites. For instance, the source that referred you to our website is generally known. Likewise, your duration on our website, and your destination when you leave our website can also be tracked. Other common data collected includes the type of operating system the computer you are using to access our website has. Similarly, the type of web browser is often noted. This data collection is aimed at producing a better end-user experience.

 

Cookies are another common internet practice. Cookies are a key means of improving user experience by allowing us to customize your use of our website. Simple information is transferred to your computer to allow the content and experience to reflect your actions, preferences, and so on. You should simply make the assumption our website uses cookies and note that you are free to make adjustments in your web browser to disable these or otherwise receive a notification of cookies so you can take whatever desired action you so choose. Please understand that refusing cookies may cripple some of our website features and render some aspects useless to you.

 

At times, you will be fully aware of the information received, as you are the direct source providing it. For instance, you may comment on a blog post, reply to an email (whether broadcast message or autoresponder), provide an email address, complete a survey, request SMS, or otherwise. Likewise, purchases necessarily involve the collection of certain information, such as credit card information, PayPal addresses, Stripe information, your physical address for billing and/or shipping, phone number, and so on. Refusing to provide some of this information may lead to us being unable to provide you with the products or services you’ve requested.

 

A prime example of limited access to our website is where content may be protected by a username and password. Whether a username and password is generated by our website, or created by you, these will almost always be connected with some other information related to or connected with you. This is true since much content that is protected on the internet is subscription based, often paid for. Thus, the username and password must necessarily be tied to your other account data. Usernames and passwords, by their very nature, should be kept private.

 

 

Google Analytics

 

SDC use Google Analytics to help analyze how users use the site. The tool uses “cookies,” which are text files placed on your computer, to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behavior information in an anonymous form. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) is transmitted to Google. This information is then used to evaluate visitors’ use of this website and to compile statistical reports on website activity.

 

We will never (and will not allow any third party to) use the statistical analytics tool to track or collect any Personally Identifiable Information of visitors to our site. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Neither we nor Google will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user.

 

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

 

 

Personal Information

 

Note that any personal information you provide to others apart from us or our vendors is wholly optional. For example, you might disclose something in a blog post comment. That “private” information is now “public,” and we have no control over its use by others. In like fashion, sharing information with any other third party not functioning as a service provider to us puts that information beyond our control and becomes subject to the policy that the party has in place.

 

Our primary intention for collecting personal and private information from you is simply to conduct our business. We can use this internally to better serve you. Accordingly, we see no reason to share your personal information with other parties and outside interests unless you have authorized us to do so.

 

Of course, there are instances where your information is stored with third-party service providers, such as email service providers, as they provide services that are industry-leading in quality and security and are far more beneficial to our end user than attempting such services “in-house.” However, you are never required to deal with any such third party directly, they are limited in how they use your information, and they cannot sell or transfer it to others in any way.

 

Your information does comprise part of an overall whole. This aggregate of information, by contrast, may be used to understand our overall user base. Further, we may share this information about our website visitors as a whole, not individually, with third parties for various purposes at our sole discretion.

 

While we are staunch privacy advocates, there are times when even we may be forced to abandon these ideals. Just as major search engines face ongoing compulsion to provide data against their will, so too may the same occur with our website. Illegal activity or other serious acts or allegations could create legal liability for our website. In those cases, we reserve the right to share your information, or else may simply be compelled to do so by law.

 

On the other hand, there may be times when we need to share your private information to protect our own interests. For instance, in cases of suspected or alleged copyright infringement or other intellectual property violations, it may be necessary to share personal information.

 

The Use of Cookies

 

Google, as a third-party advertisement vendor, may use cookies to serve ads on this website. Google's use of DART cookies enables it to serve adverts to visitors based on their visits to this website, including past visits, as well as other websites on the Internet.

However, you can opt out of some, though likely not all, of these cookies in one easy location at http://ww.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.
