Information We Collect About You

When you access the Website, the Company will learn certain infor­ma­tion about you during your visit.

Information You Provide To Us. The Website provides vari­ous places for users to provide infor­ma­tion. We collect infor­ma­tion that users provide by fill­ing out forms on the Website, commu­ni­cat­ing with us via contact forms, respond­ing to surveys, search queries on our search feature, provid­ing comments or other feed­back, and provid­ing infor­ma­tion when order­ing a prod­uct or service via the Website.

We use infor­ma­tion you provide to us to deliver the requested prod­uct and/or service, to improve our over­all perfor­mance, and to provide you with offers, promo­tions, and infor­ma­tion.

Information We Collect Through Automatic Data Collection Technology. As you navi­gate through our Website, we may use auto­matic data collec­tion tech­nolo­gies includ­ing Google Analytics to collect certain infor­ma­tion about your equip­ment, brows­ing actions, and patterns. This will gener­ally include infor­ma­tion about your loca­tion, your traf­fic pattern through our website, and any commu­ni­ca­tions between your computer and our Website. Among other things, we will collect data about the type of computer you use, your Internet connec­tion, your IP address, your oper­at­ing system, and your browser type.

The infor­ma­tion we collect auto­mat­i­cally is used for statis­ti­cal data and will not include personal infor­ma­tion. We use this data to improve our Website and our service offer­ings. To the extent that you volun­tar­ily provide personal infor­ma­tion to us, our systems will asso­ciate the auto­mat­i­cally collected infor­ma­tion with your personal infor­ma­tion.

Use of Cookies And Pixels

Similar to other commer­cial websites, our website utilizes a stan­dard tech­nol­ogy called “cook­ies” and server logs to collect infor­ma­tion about how our site is used. Information gath­ered through cook­ies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our site, and the websites visited just before and just after our own, as well as your IP address.

A cookie is a very small text docu­ment, which often includes an anony­mous unique iden­ti­fier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permis­sion to store this file in a part of your hard drive specif­i­cally desig­nated for cook­ies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s pref­er­ences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cook­ies it has already sent to you, not the cook­ies sent to you by other sites.

The Company reserves the right to use tech­no­log­i­cal equiv­a­lents of cook­ies, includ­ing social media pixels. These pixels allow social media sites to track visi­tors to outside websites so as to tailor adver­tis­ing messages users see while visit­ing that social media website. The Company reserves the right to use these pixels in compli­ance with the poli­cies of the vari­ous social media sites.​

Third Party Use Of Cookies

Some content or appli­ca­tions, includ­ing adver­tise­ments, on the Website are served by third‐parties, includ­ing adver­tis­ers, ad networks and servers, content providers, and appli­ca­tion providers. These third parties may use cook­ies alone or in conjunc­tion with web beacons or other track­ing tech­nolo­gies to collect infor­ma­tion about you when you use our website. The infor­ma­tion they collect may be asso­ci­ated with your personal infor­ma­tion or they may collect infor­ma­tion, includ­ing personal infor­ma­tion, about your online activ­i­ties over time and across differ­ent websites and other online services. They may use this infor­ma­tion to provide you with interest‐based (behav­ioral) adver­tis­ing or other targeted content.

We do not control these third parties’ track­ing tech­nolo­gies or how they may be used. If you have any ques­tions about an adver­tise­ment or other targeted content, you should contact the respon­si­ble provider directly.

Email Information

If you choose to corre­spond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protec­tions for these elec­tronic commu­ni­ca­tions that we employ in the main­te­nance of infor­ma­tion received online, mail, and tele­phone. This also applies when you regis­ter for our website, sign up through any of our forms using your email address or make a purchase on this site. For further infor­ma­tion see the email poli­cies below.

In compli­ance with the CAN‐SPAM Act, all emails sent from our orga­ni­za­tion will clearly state who the email is from and provide clear infor­ma­tion on how to contact the sender.

Disclosure Of Your Information

As a general rule, we do not sell, rent, lease or other­wise trans­fer any infor­ma­tion collected whether auto­mat­i­cally or through your volun­tary action.

We may disclose your personal infor­ma­tion to our subsidiaries, affil­i­ates, and service providers for the purpose of provid­ing our services to you.

We may disclose your personal infor­ma­tion to a third party, includ­ing a lawyer or collec­tion agency, when neces­sary to enforce our terms of service or any other agree­ment between you and the Company.

We may provide your infor­ma­tion to any succes­sor in inter­est in the event of a merger, divesti­ture, restruc­tur­ing, reor­ga­ni­za­tion, disso­lu­tion, or other sale or trans­fer of some or all of the Company’s assets and/or busi­ness.

Media Rights & Publication

Events/Group Work

By partic­i­pat­ing in any event, class, work­shop, or public group online or in person, you under­stand that video is a require­ment for provid­ing you with services. Recordings or still images or photos may be used for market­ing and promo­tional or train­ing purposes. We do not give any iden­ti­fy­ing infor­ma­tion, such as last name or contact infor­ma­tion in these media. We do not share any reveal­ing or sensi­tive or personal infor­ma­tion with your permis­sion, all infor­ma­tion disclosed at events or sessions is strictly confi­den­tial. Any testi­mo­ni­als or reviews made by you during or after events implies permis­sion to use for market­ing and are consid­ered endorse­ments. We retain all rights to replays and media created from events, and by partic­i­pat­ing you agree to waive any claims to media (photo, audio, video, etc.).

Private One‐on‐One

Private sessions are recorded for your replay use and remain private. Nothing reveal­ing or of any sensi­tive nature is shared — ever. Your privacy is incred­i­bly impor­tant. However, if we deem our own words and content from these sessions valu­able, we claim the rights and may extract our image and voice only to use for busi­ness purposes. Your face or any iden­ti­fy­ing infor­ma­tion is never shared, and we will never post anything contain­ing sensi­tive or ther­a­peu­tic infor­ma­tion.

How Do We Protect Your Information and Secure Information Transmissions?

We employ commer­cially reason­able meth­ods to ensure the secu­rity of the infor­ma­tion you provide to us and the infor­ma­tion we collect auto­mat­i­cally. This includes using stan­dard secu­rity proto­cols and work­ing only with reputable third‐party vendors.

Email is not recog­nized as a secure medium of commu­ni­ca­tion. For this reason, we request that you do not send private infor­ma­tion to us by email. However, doing so is allowed, but at your own risk. Some of the infor­ma­tion you may enter on our website may be trans­mit­ted securely via a secure medium known as Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL. Credit Card infor­ma­tion and other sensi­tive infor­ma­tion is never trans­mit­ted via email.

The Company may use soft­ware programs to create summary statis­tics, which are used for such purposes as assess­ing the number of visi­tors to the differ­ent sections of our site, what infor­ma­tion is of most and least inter­est, deter­min­ing tech­ni­cal design spec­i­fi­ca­tions, and iden­ti­fy­ing system perfor­mance or prob­lem areas.

For site secu­rity purposes and to ensure that this service remains avail­able to all users, the Company uses soft­ware programs to moni­tor network traf­fic to iden­tify unau­tho­rized attempts to upload or change infor­ma­tion, or other­wise cause damage.
