This policy may be changed at any time at Drew Gerald Intl.’s discre­tion. If we should update this policy, we will post the updates to this page on our Website. This policy was revised on December 8th, 2019.

Security

Your privacy and secu­rity are very impor­tant and great lengths are taken to protect you. The entire site and all trans­ac­tions are 100% secured using 256‐bit SSL encryp­tion. We do not store your credit card infor­ma­tion on our servers. We have expe­ri­ence tech admins and person­nel that stay on top of all the latest secu­rity stan­dards and ensure the site and your data is safe.

Who do we contact?

Drew Gerald Intl. 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. Individuals who request more infor­ma­tion or inter­act with explicit inter­est with ads or social media.

What information do we collect?

Drew Gerald Intl. collects infor­ma­tion in two cate­gories:

1. Personally Identifiable Information (PII)

  • name, e‑mail address – provided by you for regis­tra­tion to receive our free newslet­ters and courses
  • name, e‑mail, address, phone and credit card infor­ma­tion (not stored) – provided by you when purchas­ing our prod­ucts.
  • demo­graphic infor­ma­tion – used to improve our market­ing, prod­ucts and services.
  • site usage, view dura­tion, actions – used to improve the qual­ity of content and expe­ri­ence.

All such infor­ma­tion is strictly protected and used only for deliv­er­ing the content and prod­ucts the user has signed up for or purchased, or for find­ing other people who may find our infor­ma­tion valu­able. This infor­ma­tion is NEVER used for other purposes and is NEVER shared with or sold to 3rd parties for their own use.

Software and services are used to aggre­gate and track user infor­ma­tion. These tools, such as Google Analytics, store and track this infor­ma­tion as part of the service off‐site. The compa­nies we use share strict privacy stan­dards as us and go to great lengths to protect any data.

A note about demo­graphic infor­ma­tion:

We use online infor­ma­tion providers that help us better under­stand people visit­ing our sites and adver­tise to those who find our content rele­vant. We may share PII with such compa­nies provided that they have explicit poli­cies do not share our data with any other parties and solely for the purpose of help­ing us under­stand our customers better. This tech­nique is also called “data­base market­ing”. It is prac­ticed by virtu­ally every US corpo­ra­tion. Every US consumer can assume that there is a fair amount of avail­able data about them, includ­ing personal data such as buying pref­er­ences and educa­tion level.

There is no central “opt out” place that we are aware of. There are efforts under­way to reach a stan­dard that would apply auto­mat­i­cally based on browser settings.

Regardless of the state of privacy as a whole, you can avoid us find­ing out extra demo­graphic infor­ma­tion about you by disabling cook­ies or enabling “incog­nito” or “private” brows­ing modes. Note this WILL cause issues with site usage and expe­ri­ence.

2. Anonymous Usage History (non PII)

This infor­ma­tion is strictly limited to the history of activ­i­ties that the user engaged in while on our site. it does NOT include any person­ally iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion (PII).

For exam­ple, the string “sub+customer” in a cookie (see below for what cook­ies are) might indi­cate that you are both a subscriber AND a customer.

The purpose of this infor­ma­tion is to improve your expe­ri­ence.

For exam­ple, by stor­ing the fact that you are already a subscriber, we do not need to bother you with an irrel­e­vant subscriber box.

Similarly, by noting that you are a customer, we can “book­mark” the last video frames you watched in our member area and remind you of this the next time you visit.

There is a small subset of this history that we use with 3rd parties, such as Google, for the purpose of measur­ing and improv­ing the effi­cacy of adver­tis­ing campaigns.

Some of these third parties, aggre­gate such infor­ma­tion across many websites. This allows them to iden­tify users who are more likely to be inter­ested in specific offer­ings like fash­ion, sports, educa­tion and so on.

As an Internet user, you may expe­ri­ence the results of such aggre­ga­tion by notic­ing how the ads displayed on Google, for exam­ple, better match your inter­ests (the opti­mistic scenario), or at least more closely match a website that you recently visited.

Whether you find this annoy­ing and spooky or help­ful and rele­vant, or perhaps both, you are in good company. This area of Internet adver­tis­ing is new and contro­ver­sial. The trade­off between privacy vs. commer­cial effi­ciency has a long history, for exam­ple, the “Do not call” list.

In any event, it is likely that either the govern­ment or the indus­try will adopt some form of “opt out” capa­bil­ity in the future to address these concerns.

What are cookies and how do we use them?

Cookies: Like many other commer­cial sites, our site utilizes stan­dard tech­nolo­gies called “cook­ies” and clear GIFs to collect infor­ma­tion about how our Site is used. A cookie is a small data text file, which a website stores on your computer’s hard drive (if your web browser permits) that can later be retrieved to iden­tify you to us. Cookies were designed to help a website recog­nize a user’s browser as a previ­ous visi­tor and thus save and remem­ber any pref­er­ences that may have been set while the user was brows­ing the site. A cookie cannot be read by a website other than the one that set the cookie. A cookie cannot pass on a computer virus or capture any of the Personally Identifiable Information.
