How and Why I Collect Information
I collect your information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. If you register for a course, a membership of a particular programme, or a free training series, for example, the information is used to enrol you in the programme, to enrol you in my newsletters, regular email activity and to track your preferences, as well as to keep you informed about the product and related products. As a visitor to this site, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information.
If you opt in to receive any free products or services, regular emails, free training series, download a free product, register for a webinar, seminar, or live event, or purchase any product sold by me or promoted by me, you will automatically be received emails from me, and potentially mail via postal services. If you do not wish to receive my emails, you may opt out at any time. I include an unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email I send. If you have any trouble opting out, please send an email to me and I will manually remove you from my email list(s).
In connection with other activities, such as those described above, I may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in activities which require payment, however, I may ask that you provide me personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including postcode, ZIP code or other address details relevant to your country of residence), email address, telephone, credit card, and other personal information. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
In all cases, I will collect personal identification information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to me. I will also tell you how I use your information or if I share it with another party. Except as otherwise provided in this policy, I will never intentionally disclose any personal identification information about you as an individual user to any third party without having received your permission.
If you supply me with your contact information you may receive periodic emails, mailings or calls from me with information on new products and services, important issues, or upcoming events. If you wish to be removed from any postal, email, phone, or other lists, please let me know by emailing me. You can also write me or call me at the contact information above. Please provide me with your exact name, email address, mailing address, and phone. I will be sure your name is removed from the appropriate lists immediately.
