This policy is effective from 24th May 2018, updated to align with EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The Policy specifically outlines the types of information that we gather about you while you are using www.talkingabourorganizations.com (the Site), and the ways in which we use this information.
We are not liable for any loss or damage including without limitation, indirect or consequential loss or damage, or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from loss of data or profits arising out of, or in connection with, the use of this website. Talking About Organizations Podcast takes no responsibility and will not be liable for the website being temporarily unavailable due to technical issues beyond our control.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We may collect and store personal or other information that you voluntarily supply to us online while using the Site. This Site only contacts individuals who specifically request that we do so or in the event that they have signed up to receive our free newsletters or have purchased one of our products. This Site collects personally identifying information from our users during newsletter registration and online purchasing. Our servers automatically recognize visitors’ domain names, IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet), and geographical location. No personal information about you is revealed in this process. We do not use Google Analytics and so do not collect any of your demographic data.
HOW WE USE INFORMATION
We will not share or sell your personal information with any third parties without your consent, except as necessary to provide you with the services offered by us or to comply with the law. Examples of such services include, but are not limited to, third parties providing email facilitation and hosting.
However, please note that if you leave the Site and purchase a product or service we promote, the company you purchase from will notify us of the purchase and may well include certain identifying information for you. We do not share this information with others.
For example, we use Amazon Affiliate links within many of the reading references on this website. Amazon will show us details of purchases, but they will not tell us any personal details about who bought them.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
HOW WE STORE INFORMATION
If you opt in to our newsletter, your information is stored on our secure server and at the list server that delivers those newsletters. Your information can only be accessed by those who help manage those lists in order to deliver e-mail to those who would like to receive this Site’s newsletters.
All of the newsletters or emails that are sent to you by the Site include an unsubscribe link in them. You can opt-out at any time from our newsletters or mailing list by clicking the unsubscribe link that can be found in every communication that we send you.
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.
With respect to purchases, we do not store any payment details on this website, instead outsourcing that to a reputable and secure payment gateway.
