Your privacy is critically important to us. At Conscious Business, we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the ongoing operation of one of our services.
- In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
Conscious Business (“Conscious Business”) operates consciousbusiness.net.au and store.consciousbusiness.net.au. It is Conscious Business’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, Conscious Business collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Conscious Business’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Conscious Business’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Conscious Business may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Conscious Business also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Conscious Business does not use such information to identify its visitors however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Conscious Business’s websites choose to interact with Conscious Business in ways that require Conscious Business to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Conscious Business gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to access our free content in the Party Room to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Conscious Business – by purchasing access to our premium online courses, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Conscious Business collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Conscious Business. Conscious Business does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Conscious Business may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, Conscious Business may monitor the most popular blogs on consciousbusiness.net.au. Conscious Business may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Conscious Business does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Conscious Business discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information to process it on Conscious Business’s behalf or to provide services available at Conscious Business’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Conscious Business’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Conscious Business will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Conscious Business discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Conscious Business believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Conscious Business, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Conscious Business website and have supplied your email address, Conscious Business may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Conscious Business and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Conscious Business takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Conscious Business, or substantially all its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Conscious Business 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 Conscious Business may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
