Michelle Gale, Ph.D., LLC respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it.
When you access the website, we learn certain information about you, automatically as well as through voluntary actions you may take during your visit. This policy applies to information we collect on the website; via email, text, or other electronic messages between you and our company; and in the course of providing services.
Children Under The Age Of 13
Our website isn’t intended for children under 13 years of age. We don’t knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you are under 13, please don’t use or provide any information on this website, make any purchases through the website, use any of the interactive or public comment features of this site, or provide any information about yourself to us.
If we learn that we’ve collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we’ll delete it.
Information We Collect About You
Information You Provide To Us. The website will have various places at which users can provide information. We collect information that users provide by filling out forms on the site, 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.
We use the information you provide to us to deliver the requested product and/or service, improve our overall performance, and provide you with content, offers, and promotions.
Information We Collect Through Automatic Data Collection Technology. We use Google Analytics to collect certain information as you navigate our website. This will generally include information about your location, your traffic pattern through our site, and any communications between your computer and our site. Among other things, we’ll collect data about the type of computer you use, your Internet connection, IP address, operating system, and browser type.
The information we collect automatically is used for statistical purposes and won’t include personal information. We use this data to improve our website and 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.
Our website utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” and server logs to collect information about how the site is used. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, 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 tiny 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 sent you, not cookies from other sites.
If you choose to email us, we may retain the content of your emails together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we use in the maintenance of information received online, by mail, and by phone. 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.
We’re committed to keeping your email address confidential. We don’t sell, rent, or lease our subscription lists to third parties, and won’t disclose your email address to any third parties except as allowed in the section titled Disclosure of Your Information.
We’ll maintain the information you send via email in accordance with applicable federal law.
In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, all emails sent from our organization will clearly state who the email is from and provide information on how to contact the sender. All emails will also contain concise information on how to remove yourself from our mailing list.
Users who no longer wish to receive our mailings may opt-out of these communications by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the email.
How And Why We Collect Information
The company collects your information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. If you register to download a book or resources, sign up for our mailing list, and/or purchase a product or service from us, we collect your information. We use this information to track your preferences and keep you informed about the products and services you’ve elected to receive and any related products and/or services. As a visitor to this website, you can engage in most activities without providing any personal information. It’s only when you seek to download resources and/or register for services that you’re required to provide information.
If you opt to receive any free resources; participate in any free pieces of training; register for a webinar, seminar, or live event; or purchase any products or services sold by our company, we’ll only enroll you on our free email list if you affirmatively consent to it. If you change your mind, you can unsubscribe at any time. We include an “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of every email we send. If you ever have difficulty unsubscribing, please email email@example.com and ask to unsubscribe from future emails.
How We Use the Information You Provide To Us
We use personal information for purposes of presenting our website and its contents to you, providing you with information, providing you with offers for products and services, informing you about your subscriptions and products, carrying out any contract between you and the company, administering our business activities, providing customer service, and making other products and services available to our customers and prospective customers.
We may on occasion use the information you provide to us to make offers to purchase products and services provided by third parties in exchange for a commission paid us by these parties. Should you opt to take part in such promotions, the third parties will receive your information.
Disclosure Of Your Information
We don’t sell, rent, lease, or otherwise transfer any information we collect, either automatically or through your voluntary action.
We may disclose your personal information to our contractors, service providers, and affiliates for the purpose of providing our services to you.
It’s conceivable that we’d disclose your personal information to a third party, including a lawyer or collection agency, if necessary to enforce our terms of service or any other agreement between you and the company.
It’s also conceivable that we’d 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.
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so; in other words, when we, in good faith, believe the law requires it, for the protection of our legal rights, or when compelled by a court or other governmental entity to do so.
How We Protect Your Information and Secure Information Transmission
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.
Our payment arrangements are such that we don’t have access to your credit card information unless you purchase something from us face-to-face. Any payment information you enter on our website is transmitted securely via a medium known as Secure Sockets Layer or SSL. Credit card 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 for the purpose of identifying unauthorized attempts to upload or change information or otherwise do damage.
