The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices. The type and amount of information received depends on how you use the site.

Why We Collect Information and How We Use It

When you visit www.consciouswoman.org, we automatically obtain information from you about the name of your internet service provider, the browser and type of computer you are using, the website that referred you to us, the pages you request and the date and time of those requests. We use this information on an aggregate basis to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of the site to our visitors. For example, we use this information to track which pages are most popular among visitors. We do not track the pages you or any individual visitor may view during a visit to our site and we do not collect any other information without your knowledge and permission. We do not collect or store personally identifiable information, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address or phone number, unless you provide that information.

When and Why We Collect Personal Information

As a visitor to our website, you can browse the web pages on the site without having to register or provide any personal information. However, in order to participate in our online workshops, discussion forums or any other services offered on our website, you must register. In order to register, we will ask you to provide information such as your name, e-mail address, city and state of residence, and occupation.

Any information we collect is used to provide a more personalized online experience, to process payments and to track aggregate information about usage of the personalized and downloadable features. We make every effort to ensure the secure collection and transmission of your sensitive information using industry accepted data collection and encryption methodologies, such as SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) where appropriate.

How and When We Share Your Personal Information

We will not share your personal information with third parties, except to the extent that is necessary for payment processing. Your personal information will be used for internal purposes only. For example, we may use your program attendance information and personal information to e-mail you regarding other programs that may be of interest to you.

How We Use Your Financial Information

In order to access content for which a fee is charged, you must also provide us with other personal financial information, such as a credit card number, billing address and phone number.

We use a secure server for processing payments and financial information. It is an automatic process through our internet merchant account through Wells Fargo Bank, N.A./Paypal Payflow Pro. To process refunds, we will need to log in to a secure site, retrieve the information and process your refund manually through the system. We do not retain your financial information and do not share, store or use financial information for any secondary purposes.

Information Regarding Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. We use a cookie for measuring aggregate web statistics, including number of monthly visitors, number of repeat visitors, most popular webpages and other information. We will also use cookies to facilitate your online visit by maintaining data that you provide for flier customization activities so that you will not need to resubmit certain information. We use cookies to track what specific pages an individual site visitor views.

Opting Out of E-mail Lists

Outside Links

Our website contains links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. We encourage our users to take notice when they leave our site, and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.

Security

We have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect the transmission of information you submit to us when you use our secure online forms. You are on a secure page when the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer become locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just “surfing.” All the information you provide us through these forms is stored securely off-line.

We use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user information off-line. All user information is restricted to our offices. Only employees who need information to perform a specific job (e.g., our staff and accountant) are granted access to personally identifiable information. All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Finally, the servers that store sensitive information are kept in a secure environment.

If you send us an e-mail, you should know that e-mail is not necessarily secure against interception. So, if your communication includes sensitive information like your bank account, charge card and you prefer not to use one of our secure online complaint forms, contact us by mail or by telephone rather than by e-mail.
