Questions or concerns
If you have any questions or comments, or if you want to update, delete, or change any Personal Information I hold, or you have a concern about the way in which I have handled any privacy matter, please use the contact form to send me a message. You may also contact me by email using the email address [email protected]
Protecting your privacy is important
Because I collect information about the members and visitors of this site, I think you should understand what information I collect and how it will be used.
I feel that whatever I do, member and visitor privacy always comes first. This means that when I have to decide how to use information from my websites, it must pass a test. Is the person’s privacy compromised in any way? If the answer is yes, then I don’t do it.
This policy will explain the guidelines for using and protecting your information.
What information is collected?
There are two types of information collected when you use this website: Anonymous and Personally Identifiable.
Anonymous Information is information that cannot be used to identify a person. Examples include general website traffic and information such as the total number of people who visit the Site. This information is used to improve the sites so they can offer the best experience.
Personally Identifiable Information is information that tells gives more specific information about you, such as name and email address. This information is only collected with your consent. The information collected depends on which service you use. This information is used to deliver personalised information to you. An example is my email lists. Your emails is requested so you can log into the website and/or so you can be sent information.
To improve security, an external provider is used to safeguard your email addresses.
Unless required to do so by law, your personal information will never knowingly be shared. Your information will not be sold or made available to marketing agencies or outside parties.
When you register an account with me, we’ll ask you to provide information including your first and last name, email address, credit card/payment details and account information like username and password. I use this information to:
- Send you information about your account, orders, courses, and memberships
- Communicate with you about courses and memberships in which you are enrolled
- Respond to your requests, including refunds and complaints
- Process payments and prevent fraud
- Set up your account so you can access my site
- Comply with any legal obligations I may have
- Improve the website’s offerings
- Send you marketing messages of which you can unsubscribe at any time
Credit/debit card security
Credit/Debit card information is not stored on my servers.
This means humans can not read it. It also means that if someone is intercepting your internet traffic the card number is scrambled. No one can read it except my credit card processing company.
I use secure servers (SSL) and extra strong encryption. On my site, when a website address begin with “https:// ” all data transmission is encrypted so that other people snooping around the net can not read the data.
Thus using your card on my site is more secure than using your card at a restaurant or store where someone can easily write down all the information from your card.
As a final comfort, most credit card companies will drop a credit card charge if you tell them you never made the charge. They have to do this to stay in business.
I may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. I may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, I will not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described herein.
I and my third party partners may use technologies from time to time, like web beacons, pixels (or “clear gifs”) and other tracking technologies. These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enables me to recognise when someone has visited the Website or, in the case of web beacons, opened an e-mail that I have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within the Websites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the Websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to serve targeted advertisements to you and others like you, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of marketing campaigns. While you may not have the ability to specifically reject or disable these tracking technologies, in many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly; accordingly, in those instances, declining cookies will block or impair functioning of these technologies.
Targeted online advertising
I use third party services to provide me with targeted online advertising.
The information collected by these third parties does not include personal information that enables you to be specifically identified (e.g. by reference to your name or email address).
Where do I send your data?
Very limited customer and supplier information is stored on my computer systems. To protect that information, I have physical, electronic, and managerial systems and procedures in place.
If Atomic Education, or substantially all of my assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Atomic Education goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Atomic Education may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Privacy on websites that this site links to
My websites may have links to other sites providing information and services. These sites have their own data and privacy practices that I cannot be held responsible or liable for.
