Growth Of Influence (“GOI“) operates www.growthofinfluence.com and may operate other websites. It is GOI policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, GOI 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. GOI's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how GOI visitors use its website. From time to time, GOI may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. GOI also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on www.growthofinfluence.com blogs/sites. GOI only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to GOI websites choose to interact with GOI in ways that require GOI to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that GOI gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at www.growthofinfluence.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with GOI are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, GOI collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with GOI. GOI 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.
GOI may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. GOI may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, GOI does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
GOI discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on GOI behalf or to provide services available at GOI websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. More specifically, GOI uses the Google service «Google Analytics» for the sole purpose of monitoring user behaviour on the website in order to further improve our services. In addition, we use «Mailchimp'' for email marketing purposes, storing only your username and email that you provided when you signed for our newsletter. In any case, your data can be deleted completely upon request. For any clarifications or data deletion requests feel free to contact us at ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’. You also have the right to request access to your personal data here. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using GOI websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. GOI will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, GOI discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when GOI believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of GOI, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an GOI website and have supplied your email address, GOI 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 GOI and our products. If you send us a request (for example via 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. GOI takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If GOI, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that GOI 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 GOI may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
