First thing First …
- Why I collect personally identifiable information;
- What personally identifiable information I collect;
- How I use that information, including how the information is stored and whether I share the information with third parties;
- Your choices regarding my collection, use, and distribution of that information.
What information does TRD collect?
TRD collects two types of information from you: Personally identifiable information (e.g., information that can be used to identify you specifically, such as your name, e-mail address, billing address, telephone number, credit card information, etc.) and non-personally identifiable information (e.g., information that reasonably could not be linked to or associated with you or aggregated anonymous data, etc.).
Digital Product Download: When you purchase one of my Digital Products, I collect your name, e-mail address, credit card information, and billing address through PayPal or Stripe. When you purchase a free Digital Product, I only collect your name and e-mail address.
Promotions: If you participate in a TRD promotion like a giveaway, contest, or sweepstake, I collect and store the name and e-mail address you submit to enter the promotion.
Surveys: If you participate in a TRD survey, I may collect your name and e-mail address in connection with that survey, as well as the information you agree to submit in the survey.
Third party analytics
What does TRD do with my information?
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
I use non-personally identifiable information, like aggregate data about the most visited Site pages or the duration of a certain Site page’s visits from Google Analytics that is not tied to any specific Site user, to maintain, improve, and protect my Site, my product, and my service offerings.
Personally Identifiable Information
When you sign up for my newsletter (by “Joining The Tribe”), I use the name and e-mail address that you provide to subscribe you to my newsletter, in order to send you the newsletter or e-mails. I store the name and e-mail address you provide in an SSL encrypted database.
When you enter a promotion on my Site, I use the information you submit to administer the promotion (e.g., enter you into the promotion, notify you if you are a winner, and send you your prize). I store the name and e-mail address you provide in an SSL encrypted database. If the prize for the promotion is administered by a third party, I may provide your name and e-mail address to that third party if you are one of the winners of a promotion. Please read the rules of any promotion prior to entering any giveaway, contest, or sweepstakes.
When you purchase a Digital Product, I use the personal information you provide to process the transaction, deliver the purchased Digital Product(s), and to provide customer service as necessary. I store this information in an SSL encrypted database.
What about international transfers?
I am subject to the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that protect your personal data. Where I transfer your data to third parties outside of the EEA, I will ensure that certain safeguards are in place to ensure a similar degree of security for your personal data. As such:
I may transfer your personal data to countries that the European Commission have approved as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data by; or
If I use US-based providers that are part of EU-US Privacy Shield, I may transfer data to them, as they have equivalent safeguards in place; or
Where I use certain service providers who are established outside of the EEA, I may use specific contracts or codes of conduct or certification mechanisms approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.
If none of the above safeguards is available, I may request your explicit consent to the specific transfer. You will have the right to withdraw this consent at any time.
Do you link to third party websites?
I sometimes provide links to third party websites on my Site. If you choose to click on a third-party website link on my Site, you acknowledge and agree that TRD has no control over or responsibility for the information, content, products, services, advertising, or information collection practices of the third party site(s). I do not make any representations or warranties regarding the accuracy, security or legal or regulatory compliance of third party websites and you agree to assume the risks, responsibilities, and consequences resulting from your use or access of third party websites.
Does TRD share my personal information with third parties?
There are some instances in which TRD may share your personal information. I may disclose your personal information without your consent when I have a good faith belief that I am required to release the information pursuant to any applicable law, regulation, court order, or legal process.
Do you collect children’s information?
My Site and my Digital Products and Services are not directed to, marketed towards, or intended for children under thirteen (13) years of age and I request that children under 13 do not submit any personally identifiable information or any other information to my Site.
Is my personally identifiable information secure?
The security of your personally identifiable information is important to TRD.
If you have reason to believe that the security of your information has been compromised, please e-mail me immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org .
What are my opt out choices?
Electronic Newsletter and E-mail Communications
You may unsubscribe from my electronic newsletters or e-mail communications (including promotional e-mails) at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions in the e-mail or newsletter you received from me. You can also contact me via e-mail at email@example.com.
Correction or deletion of personally identifiable information.
You may request that I update, change, correct, or delete your personally identifiable information at any time. If you request that I delete your personally identifiable information, I will remove your personally identifiable information that is stored in databases I actively use and in readily searchable formats. Please be aware, however, that it may not be technologically possible for me to erase or otherwise remove every record of the information you have provided to me, such as information stored on backup tapes or backup servers. I am not responsible for and cannot control the personally identifiable information that you have provided to third parties.
If you are a resident of California, you have the right to request a list of all third parties to which TRD has disclosed certain personally identifiable information during the preceding year for third party direct marketing purposes. If you choose to make such a request, please be advised that you are limited to one request per calendar year. Please provide a current California address for my response to you and please also attest to the fact that you are a California resident. At this time, I only collect personally identifiable information about your online activities on my Site. I do not collect personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across third-party web sites or online services.
Does TRD use affiliate links?
Yes. At this time TRD is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. A special tracking code is used and I may make a small commission on the sale of an item if you purchase through one of these links. The price of the item is the same for you whether it is an affiliate link or not.
If I post an affiliate link to a product, it is something that I personally use, support and would recommend without an affiliate link. Unless noted otherwise, any product I link to is one I have purchased myself and use for myself or my family. I do not accept free products for review and also disclose if I am affiliated with a company in any other way that benefits me financially.
Please note that while I personally purchase, review and use every product I link to, these products are purchased from third party companies and I do not control these companies or have a financial interest other than an affiliate relationship unless otherwise disclosed.
For this reason, I cannot ensure that any item purchased through a link on TRD is shipped on time, packaged properly, or that you will like it. Any problems or concerns with a specific product purchased through a link on this website should be directed to the company the item was purchased from.
