Our Privacy Philosophy
We do not share your personal information with anyone - businesses, organizations, newsletters, etc. - without your permission. We intend that you will always be aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it (if any). Visitors to our Web site always have a choice as to whether or not to allow us to continue to use their information.
Visiting Our Website
When you visit our website (or any other site on the web), some information is automatically collected about your visit on our webhost's servers. This generally includes the date and time you visited, your "home" domain (the one you used to access the Internet, such as msn.com or aol.com, or your local ISP), the browser you connected with (e.g., Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, AOL, etc.), the website or domain you were on when you came here ("referrer"), and the pages of our website you visited.
This information doesn't identify you personally. Most websites you visit collect this information automatically. We may use it to help us measure our visitor traffic to the various parts of the website, so we can make our site and our services more useful for you.
Again, please understand that we do not obtain personal information about you when you visit our website, unless you choose to provide it to us by filling in an information form.
When you subscribe to our E-mail newsletter, we need to have your E-mail address, at the very least. This, and any other personal information you provide us, will be kept strictly confidential.
If you choose to provide any other personal information, it does help us to understand what your needs are, and if you do share this with us, we appreciate it and will protect it.
Our website's registration forms request users to give us contact and profile information (such as your E-mail address, and optionally your name and other information). Your E-mail address is required in order to receive our newsletter, and other identifying information is needed for you to register for classes or other services. The other optional information is used to (1) send confirmation of profile changes and to (2) contact users for feedback, surveys, class offerings, or other new or enhanced services.
Please remember that email is not secure against interception - it's the nature of the beast. (You probably know this, especially if you use the E-mail system where you work!).
So, if your communications with us include sensitive or personal information, you should speak to us by telephone or send a regular letter or fax. (Our fax number is secure and is not connected to the web or E-mail.)
Please don't send credit card numbers or checking account information by E-mail. Our payment services use secure servers for this, which encrypt the information.
When you visit, or when you purchase services/products, we may gather information via "cookies", which are small pieces of digital information stored on your computer by our web server. Our cookies do not contain your personal information, but they do help us to personalize your user experience by remembering where you are in the website and/or identifying you as a repeat visitor. Cookies may also be used by our payment services during the payment process, on their secure server system. You may need to have cookies enabled on your computer in order to use specialized member sections of our website.
Permission For Release Of Data
We do not release, sell, rent, or give our newsletter subscribers' name, E-mail address, or any other personal information to any other party or organization without the subscriber's explicit permission, unless we are required to do so by law or we believe, in good faith, that such action is necessary to (1) comply with the law or with a legal process; (2) protect the personal safety or property of our members or the public; (3) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of DrDavidBlair; or (4) protect and defend our rights and property.
For example, we may need to participate in fraud investigations, where someone has provided false registration information or has attempted to pose as someone else. We cooperate fully with legitimate investigations of fraud, and information about that person, including their computer's IP address, may be disclosed to appropriate authorities as part of an investigation into those actions.
