We receive two types of information when you visit our site:
- Information automatically collected.
- Information you choose to provide.
Information Automatically Collected
Cookies and Other Information.
Like other websites, we also may collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate through our Site. For example, we employ a standard feature of browser software called a “cookie” to assign each user a unique, random number that resides on a user’s computer. The cookie does not personally identify the user; it merely identifies the computer with which the user accesses the Site. Unless a user voluntarily identifies himself or herself (through registration, for example), the Site will not be able to ascertain the identity of the user, even if a cookie is assigned to a user’s computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information supplied by a user. By showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies help track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the Site where you have entered preference information previously. Of course, you are free to set your web browser to disable cookies or otherwise limit the information we collect; however, if you do so it may render your computer unable to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other users of the Site. Cookies allow us to provide better security on the Site, to customize the Site’s content, to track orders and purchases, and to make a shopping cart work properly.
We also may use web beacons and other methods to access cookies and to count users who visit our Site or open our HTML-formatted email messages. Our Site’s servers automatically collect limited information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, including your IP address. The IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send data such as the web pages users view. An IP address does not personally identify a user. We use this information to deliver the Site’s content to you upon request and to measure traffic within the Site.
When you visit any website, the site can automatically collect information about your visit. When you browse through our site, read pages there, or download information, we collect certain information to measure how many visitors come to the different parts of the site so we can make the site more useful.
Example: We use browser information to help us design our site so the greatest number of people can view the pages correctly.
For every visitor, we collect and temporarily store the following information:
- Your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, a number automatically assigned to your computer when you go on the Web.
- The domain from which you access the Internet, such as comcast.com, if you use a Comcast account to access the internet.
- The website address from which you came to our site, such as google.com if you came by clicking a like from a Google search.
- The date and time you arrived at our site and how long you spent there.
- The name and version of your computer’s operating system and browser, for example Windows 10/Mozilla Firefox 5.
- The pages you visited.
We use this information to improve our website and provide a better experience for our visitors. We use tools, such as Google Analytics, Urchin, Google AdWords Conversion Tracking, ConversionFly, Facebook Conversion Tracking, Hitslinks, WordPress Stats, Chartbeat and other analytics programs to aggregate this information. The information is available only to our Web managers and staff who require this information to perform their duties. It is retained only for as long as needed for analysis purposes.
Backup Saving and Management:
Remarketing and Behavioral Targeting:
We use Facebook retargeting, RetargetingCloud, AdRoll, Retargeter, Perfect Audience, and other retargeting tools.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Infusionsoft stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

Our chat widget collects cookies and usage data and personally identifiable information you provide during your chat.
Displaying Content From External Platforms:
We display content from external platforms such as Vimeo, Wistia, YouTube, GotoWebinar, Webinar Jeo, and Scribed, which collect cookies and usage data. Signups for webinars and teleseminars may collect your name, email address and (optionally) cell phone number to send email and, where applicable, SMS reminders and announcements.

These services collect email addresses, names, and optionally, other information which you choose to provide. Participation is optional, though if you choose not to provide this information, you may not be able to access some of the content we offer.
