how do we use information we collect from cookies?
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as traffic data so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.
sharing and selling information
We do not share, sell, lend or lease any of the information that uniquely identify a member (such as email addresses or personal details) with anyone except to the extent it is necessary to process transactions or provide services that you have requested.
what about legally compelled disclosure of information?
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights. We may also disclose account information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms of Service or to protect the safety of our users and the Public.

our commitment to data security:
Please note that your information will be stored and processed on our computers in the United States. The laws on holding personal data in the United States may be less stringent than the laws of your Country of residence or citizenship. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
We use Mailchimp, Squarespace and ConvertKit to handle our email communications with you and every newsletter allows visitors to unsubscribe so that they will not receive future messages. All you have to do is scroll down to the bottom of any message and click on the unsubscribe link.

We reserve the right to remove any member from this site for being rude, unpleasant, abusive or excessively obsessive. If they have paid for a membership, no refunds will be granted for such behavior.
surveys & contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
