Privacy & Cookie Policy: Effective Date: September 2018

Welcome to our Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy. This page explains what personal data we collect and what we do with that personal information.

By personal information we mean information about you collected through our service website(s), including your email address and other information you provide to us by registering for our Services or making requests for information about our Services. Any information provided to us will be retained and used solely for the purposes of fulfilling your request for information, fulfilling a request through a website feature, performing and carrying out the terms of the service, or communicating with you as a member of the service.

This Privacy Policy applies only to our Service and not to any other company, individual, organisation or website that you may reach via a link from our website, except for those companies we mention below. If at any time you have a question about anything contained in this Privacy Policy or a general query on privacy, please contact us here.

Consent...

Your registration for and continued use of our service signifies your consent to us collecting and using personal information about you in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Service email messages are required to fulfil the service to you. You may opt out of these communications or deactivate your account at any time by following the instructions included in each communication or by contacting How to Build a Brand support here.

What information do we collect…

Registration Information...

Although certain areas of our website are made available to all visitors, before you can use the service, you will need to register your details with us in accordance with the registration details. If you have not already done so, please register your details. Should you not register your details, you will not be allowed to use the service. The registration may require you to provide contact information such as your name and email address, phone number and billing address to allow us to communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We may communicate with you by email or telephone.

We reserve the right to ask for your date of birth to verify your age. Please note we will not collect the personal information of any individual who tells us he or she is under the age of 18.

Aggregate Information…

From time to time, we may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of the website and the service, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the website, how long they stay on that page, and which hyperlinks, if any, they "click" on. We collect this information through the use of technologies such as "cookies" and "IP addresses", which are discussed in greater detail below. We may also group this information into aggregate visitor data in order to describe the use of the website and service to our existing or potential business partners or other third parties, or in response to a government request. However, please be assured that this aggregate data will in no way personally identify you, other list members or any other visitors to the website.

IP Addresses…

An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the web. Web servers, the computers that "serve" web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. How to Build a Brand collects IP addresses for purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to third parties and to track the use of the website. When visitors request pages from the website or click on a link in a mailing sent through the service, our servers log the visitors' IP addresses. We reserve the right to use IP addresses to identify a visitor or list member when it will enhance the users experience or if we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with the website's policies or to protect the company, the website, its visitors, the service, our Internet Service Provider partners, the list members or others.

How we collect information from you...

In order to process your account for the service and in order to reconcile our accounts, Paypal and Stripe or such other payment partner as we may use from time to time may provide us with information detailing the credits and/or debits made to your credit/debit card.

Cookies...

Cookies are small files of information, which are stored on your computer. Websites you visit ask your computer to store this information and retrieve the information from your computer so they can keep track of things like other websites you visit or how you navigate our website or other files which provide you with the Site. For more information about what cookies are and how they work, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

On revisiting our website or in using the files, our computer server will recognise the cookie and give us information about your use of the site. Most browsers accept cookies automatically, but usually you can alter the settings of your browser to prevent automatic acceptance. If you choose not to receive cookies, you may still use the site, but you may find the site may not function properly or is slower than when you allow a cookie to be installed on your machine.

Clear Gifs (Web Beacons / Web Bugs)…

Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of website users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly in HTML files and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We may use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails recipients have opened. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter or other promotional communications by email, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each communication.

How we look after your information...

We make sure that all the information we hold on you is as safe as possible. In addition, we have strict security procedures covering the storage and disclosure of your information in order to prevent unauthorised access and to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) . This means that sometimes we may ask you for proof of identity before disclosing any personal information to you.

Security and Information Protection…

The security of your information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our registration and payment forms, we encrypt that information using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Firewalls…

Protecting the security of your personal information is very important to us. When we store information that you have provided to us when registering for the service, that information is protected by security measures that include "firewalls" (a combination of computer hardware and software that helps keep unauthorised visitors from accessing information within our computer network), "intrusion detection systems" (a combination of computer hardware and software that helps detect any unauthorised visitors) and other tools such as data encryption and physical security, where appropriate. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data repository can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while How to Build a Brand strives to protect your personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personal information.

What do we do with your information?

We use your information to process orders you make from our site. We will communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We may communicate with you by email or telephone. We may contact you from time to time to let you know about our services, which may include sending you newsletters and news on events that you may be interested in. You can elect not to receive such marketing material at any time by using the methods described in all our communications and on our contact page.

Profile…

We may store information that we collect through cookies and clear gifs to create a "profile" of your preferences. We may tie your personal information to information in the profile to provide tailored promotions and marketing offers or to improve the content of the website for you. We do not share your profile with third parties.

When do we give information that you provide us with to other people?

To provide the service to you, we may sometimes use other businesses to perform certain specialised services such as data processing or other technology services. In such instances, we may provide your personal information to those businesses, but they are not permitted to retain or use your information for any other purpose.

Apart from entities that are involved in helping us to run our website, membership services and data processing, we never give your information to any third parties. The entities that help us run our site are ICE Innovation, which provides hosting and design services to us, and our payment provider, which provides credit card payment processing services to us. In order to buy material from our site you will have to comply with the terms of our payment partner. We will share information with each other only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing payments you make for materials from our website and to enable us to retrieve payments from them.

iMember 360, Infusionsoft, Active Campaign, Facebook and WordPress provide the technology on which our website runs and holds and maintains the databases in which data about our users is contained. We use Google Analytics Tracking Code and Facebook pixels to analyse the use of this website. iMember 360, Infusionsoft and Active Campaign will only use data you provide to the extent necessary to enable us to operate the website membership services, and data processing. To access our facebook group you must also agree to the Facebook Privacy Policy.

We reserve the right to access and disclose individually identifiable information (i) to comply with applicable laws and government requests, (ii) to be able to operate our systems properly or (iii) to protect ourselves, or our users.

Legal Compliance…

How to Build a Brand reserves the right to disclose member information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) How to Build a Brand’s rights or property, other visitors, list members, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. How to Build a Brand also reserves the right to disclose visitor or list member information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

Change of Control / Asset Transfer…

As How to Build a Brand develops, we may buy other businesses or their assets or sell all or parts of our business assets. Customer information is generally one of the business assets involved in such transactions. Thus, in the event that the assets of the Company in whole or in parts are acquired by a third-party, customer information, including any visitor information collected through the website or the service, would be one of the transferred assets. In the event of a corporate change in control or sale of all or parts of our business assets our users will be notified in accordance with the "Changes to this Policy" section of the policy if their personal information is provided to the new corporate entity or asset purchaser.

Links to Other Sites…

Please be aware that when you are on the website, or when you receive an email message from us through the service, you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There may be links to other sites from the site's pages or from the email message we send to you that take you outside our site. These other sites may send their own cookies to visitors, collect data, or solicit personal information. The privacy policies of these other sites may be significantly different from this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites and cannot guarantee the security of any of your personal information collected there. Note that when you link to a third party site from the site, you may see pre-populated data fields with your personal information; however, that information is not available to the third party unless you take certain actions on the third party's site, such as submitting a form.

Privacy Policy for Children…

We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13 on the site or through the service. If you are under the age of 13, please do not provide any information to us. If we become aware that we have collected information from a child under the age of 13, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.

Changes to this Policy…

The terms of this Policy may change from time to time. We will notify you of any material changes to this Policy by email, and by changing the "Effective" date at the top of this Policy. We encourage you to check this page periodically for any changes. Your continued use of the website and participation in following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.
