YOUR INFORMATION

We may share Your information with third parties in certain situations. In particular, We may share Your data with third party processors as needed to serve Our legitimate business interests, which include administration of Our website, administration of Your account, entering into contracts with You, communicating with You, taking orders for goods or services, delivering Our goods and services, identifying trends, protecting the security of Our company and website, and marketing additional goods and services to You. The legal basis for Our disclosure of Your data is both Your Consent to this Privacy Policy and Our own right to protect and promote Our legitimate business interests.

The following are specific reasons why We may share Your information.

Third Party Processing: We may disclose Your information to third parties who assist Us with various tasks, including payment processing, hosting services, email delivery and customer service. We may not always disclose these third party processors if not required by law. We do not authorize them to use or disclose Your personal information except in connection with providing Our company with their services.

By Law: We may share Your data as required by law or to respond to legal process, including a summons, or as necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of others. This includes sharing information with other parties to prevent or address fraud and to avoid credit risks.

To Protect Our Company: We may use Your information to protect Our company, including to investigate and remedy any violations of Our rights or policies. We may also disclose Your information as reasonably necessary to acquire and maintain insurance coverage, manage risks, obtain financial or legal advice, or to exercise or defend against legal claims.

Other Third Parties: We may share information with advertisers, Our investors, or other third parties for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. If We do so, We will make reasonable efforts to inform You if required by law.

Business Transfers: In the unlikely event Our company engages in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy proceedings, dissolution, reorganization, or similar transaction or proceeding, We may transfer or share Your data as part of that proceeding. In such transitions, customer information is one of the business assets that is acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such business transfers may occur and that Your personal information can continue to be stored, used, or processed as otherwise set forth in this privacy policy.

Affiliates: We may share Your personal information with Our business affiliates who promote Our product(s) or service(s) for a commission fee. We require Our affiliates to honor this Privacy Policy. They are not allowed to spam You and must disclose they are an affiliate for Us. If they do not do so, they are in violation of their affiliate terms and this Privacy Policy, and any violation of this nature should be reported to alissa@alissarumsey.com

Please note that, at this time, We do not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking systems, which may include “do not track” instructions.

Interaction with others: If You interact with others on Our website or mobile app, such as participating in a group chat or a group online course, other users may have access to some of Your data, including Your name, profile picture, and Your history of interaction with Our website, such as prior comments or posts.

Online postings: When You post online, Your posts may be viewed by others, and We may distribute Your comments outside the website.

Although We use reasonable care in including a hyperlink on Our own web page, We do not regularly monitor the websites of these third parties, are not responsible for any damage or consequences You suffer by using these hyperlinks. We are not bound by the Privacy Policies of any third party website that You access by a hyperlink, nor are they bound by ours. We encourage You to read the Policies of those third party websites before interacting with them or making purchases. They may collect different information and by different methods than We do.

Other purposes: We may disclose Your personal data as necessary to comply with any legal obligation or to protect Your interests, or the vital interests of others or Our company.

PROCESSING YOUR INFORMATION

For the most part, We do not process Your information in-house, but give it to third party processors for processing. For example, when Stripe or PayPal takes Your payment information, they are a third party processor. They process Your payment and remit the funds to Us. So in many instances, it will be necessary for Us to transmit Your information to a third party processor, as We do not have the capability to perform these functions. More detail on third party processing is detailed below.

However, We may, from time to time, process Your data internally. The legal basis for this processing is both Your consent to the processing, and Our need to conduct Our legitimate business interests. Our purposes in processing this information, if We do, is to administer, maintain, and improve Our website and offerings, to enter into contracts with You, to fulfill the terms of those contracts, to keep records of Our transactions and interactions, to be able to provide You with goods and services, to comply with Our legal obligations, to obtain professional advice, and to protect the rights and interests of Our company, Our customers (including You), and any third parties. We may process the following data:

SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION

We take all reasonable steps to protect Your personal data and keep Your information secure. We use recognized online secure payment systems and implement generally accepted standards of security to protect against personal data loss or misuse. However, no security measure is foolproof, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against interception or misuse. We cannot guarantee complete security of any information You transmit to Us.

By consent to this Privacy Policy, You acknowledge that Your personal data may be available, via the internet, around the world. We cannot prevent the use or misuse of Your data by other parties.

We will notify You of promptly any known breach of Our security systems or Your data which might expose You to serious risk.

SENSITIVE DATA

We request that You do not submit any sensitive data to Us, via public postings, email correspondence with Us, or any other method, including social security number, health data, genetic data, or information related to Your ethnic origin, religious beliefs, or criminal history.
