Who we are
Our website address is: https://andyspringerconsulting.com. This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information we receive from users of the site.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We use your personal information for providing and improving the site. By using the site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
While using our site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) may include, but is not limited to your name, email address, phone number, company/organization, or mailing address.
Like many sites, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our site. This data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics. In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor, and analyze this data so we can develop our site and offer relevant products and services to current and potential partners and/or customers.
Third party service vendors (credit card companies, financial institutions, mail services or database managers) may also capture your information in order to accurately track purchases and submissions. We do not control how these third parties use such information, but we do ask them to disclose how they use personal information provided to them from visitors and authorized customers. Some of these third parties may be intermediaries that act solely as links in the distribution chain, and do not store, retain, or use the information given to them.
We may use your Personal Information to contact you with emails, newsletters, marketing or promotional materials, and other information that allows us to connect with you further. Likewise, third party vendors may use your information in correlation with our offerings to secure payments and to manage contact lists, etc. Know that you can always remove yourself from newsletter and/or email lists by contacting us at [email protected] and providing the email address you would like to remove.
If you upload images or other content to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Submitted personal information is done knowingly by you and requires you to touch/click a “Submit” (or similarly named) button. This information is sent to our email service until it is acted upon and/or deleted.
A subscription request is stored for customer relationship management and used for ongoing communication and updates from our site. This is a willful request by the submitter and may be withdrawn at any time. A third-party, such as MailChimp, may be used to automate this process.
Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Like many sites, we use “cookies” to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our site.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year. If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content and links from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
This site utilizes non-identifiable tracking cookies through Google Analytics to learn about our visitors’ browsing so that we may enhance their experience and promote our brand.
Who we share your data with
We do not sell Personal Information. Personal Information may at times be required to be provided to third-party vendors to complete processes initiated by you, such as a credit card purchase, etc.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. Additionally, customers who have booked appointments or events may view or delete their data on our booking platform. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
We do not sell your Personal Information when you register or submit it on our website.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Those submitting personal information to andyspringerconsulting.com must be at least 18 years of age. If information has been provided through our website and needs to be withdrawn for a minor, a parent or guardian may email to [email protected], providing their request with the name and email of the minor.
