Information Collection and Use
www.stresstostrength.com Inc is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. www.stresstostrength.com Inc collects information from our users at several different points on our website.
In order to use this website, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give their contact information (such as name, postal and email address). This information is used to contact the user about their purchases and to respond to questions about the services. .
A third party also requests information after our registration form. Here a user must re-submit their contact information (like name and shipping address) and also provide financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer’s orders by the third party. We do not store your credit card information. See the Sharing section below. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. We use a persistent cookie to maintain the users’ sessions. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. Cookies also enable us to track and target in the aggregate the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
Like most standard web site servers we use log files. This includes IP (internet protocol) addresses, browser type, ISP (internet service provider), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and #of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We do not share personally identifiable information without the users prior express permission.
We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
We use an outside credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. This company does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
We partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. For example it is necessary to provide email addresses and names to the party handling our newsletter services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
We post ‘Expect A Miracle Stories’ on the website with your prior permission.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we www.stresstostrength.com Inc are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
Our newsletter is a strictly opt-in feature and is differentiated from the registration and other forms that collect email. If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. Out of respect for our users privacy we provide a way to opt-out of these communications. Please see the choice and opt-out section below.
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested includes contact information (such as name and email address). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site. The contact information is used to send back the results of the survey after it is scored.
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend’s name and email address. www.stresstostrength.com will send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry – SSL. While on a secure page, such as our payments form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to your information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Our employees are notified and/or reminded on a continuing basis about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers’ information is protected. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment, behind a locked cage.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to email@example.com.
Established members will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications. See our Choice/Opt-Out section below.
Site and Service Updates
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send you an email. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications, though you can deactivate your account. However, these communications are not promotional in nature. We communicate with the user to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account via email or phone in accordance with the users wishes.
Correction/Updating/Deleting Personal Information:
If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as your email, phone, zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we provide a way to correct, update or remove that user’s personal data provided to us. This can usually be done at the “Change my details” section or by emailing our Customer Support firstname.lastname@example.org.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from our partners may opt-out of receiving these communications by following the removal instructions on the bottom of the email.
Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party, or not. Notification of Changes
