Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of children is especially important. For that reason, InLight Connection and the associated Doug Addison websites and mobile applications will never knowingly collect or maintain information at our website from those we know are under 18.

No part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 18. If you believe that we have received information from a person under 18, please contact us by email at help@dougaddison.com and we will take appropriate action.

Collection of Personal Information

As a visitor to this website, you can enjoy many free resources such as blogs, podcasts and webcasts without providing any personal information. It is only when you seek to download resources and/or purchase products that you are required to provide personal information.

In cases where information is provided to us, it is important that you understand the following:
We will not release your name, email address or any other personal information to anyone outside of InLight Connection without your consent, unless we are under a legal order to do so, or there is an emergency involving danger to a person or property.

We will not provide advertisers or anyone else outside of InLight Connection with any information specific to you unless we have your consent.

InLight Connection collects your information in order to record and support your participation in activities you have selected or requested. We use these records to note your preferences and to keep you informed about the products and services you have expressed interest in, purchased or asked to receive information about. We may also use this information to refer any related products and/or services that may be of interest to you.

We may also collect personal information about you via registration for newsletters, webinars, online events, live events, conferences, online training programs, comments, donations, product purchases, membership sites and other areas that require specialized access to our products and services.

We may use your collected information to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content and product offerings and to customize our website content, layout and provide service specifically for you.

We may also use your information to provide technical support to you, or to improve the delivery of our goods and services, to resolve disputes or to enforce agreements with us.
Where you have an opportunity to supply information about yourself, you may choose not to provide requested information but, in such cases, you may not be able to use certain functions or access products on InLight Connection websites.

Only authorized InLight Connection employees, contractors or consultants with a legitimate business need to handle their responsibilities are allowed access to personal information about you. Any employee or contractor who violates our privacy and security policies is subject to disciplinary action.

This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, and gather broad demographic information for internal use. It may also be used to provide technical support to you when requested.

Security

InLight Connection uses a number of security methods designed to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure correct use of information. Your personal data will be stored within a database that is located behind a firewall for added security and is only accessible to those InLight Connection staff and contractors who have a legitimate business need to access this information.

No data transmission over the internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be secure. As a result, while we try to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. We are not liable for the illegal acts of any third party.

We do not encrypt normal web sessions, however any transmission to the InLight Connection store website or service of credit card information uses SSL encryption to help protect the data.

Data Storage

Our shopping cart solution is hosted and managed by Infusionsoft and/or Woo-Commerce. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through Infusionsoft’s data storage, databases and the Infusionsoft application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall. You can learn more about Infusionsoft’s privacy policy here: https://www.infusionsoft.com/legal/privacy-policy

Your data may also be stored in our member portal, hosted on InLight Connection web servers. This is how you access the digital products and services you have purchased from InLight Connection.

Participation in Forums and Community Groups

InLight Connection may require personal payment information to process your payments for products, services and/or donations. InLight Connection will share your payment information with banks or vendors relevant to the transaction in order to enable transactions to be completed.

If you choose a direct-payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Infusionsoft and/or Easy Pay Direct and/or PayPal stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).

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.

InLight Connection shall not be liable to you or any other person for any damages that might result from unauthorized use, publication, disclosure or any other misuse of payment information, including credit card information.

Data Retention

InLight Connection will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.

When deciding what the correct time is to keep the data for, we look at its amount, nature and sensitivity, potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure, the processing purposes and if these can be achieved by other means and legal requirements.

Certain federal laws require us to keep basic information about our members, partners and customers (including contact, identity, financial and transaction data) for at least six years after they stop being active members, partners and customers.

Participation in Forums and Community Groups

Any information you share in public areas, such as the InLight Connection blog comments, community forums for online schools, our community Facebook groups, or similar public access areas, becomes public information automatically and therefore this Privacy Policy does not apply to any information you choose to post in those areas and make public.

We encourage visitors to InLight Connection to be cautious about what they disclose and that they do not post any personal information that they expect to keep private.

Personally Identifiable Information is information that can be used to contact you or determine your specific identity. If other information is linked to this information, it also becomes Personally Identifiable Information.

Third-Party Services

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies, so you can understand how your personal information will be handled.

Additionally, we may have included links on this site to third-party websites for your use and reference. We are not responsible for the privacy policies on these websites. You should be aware that the privacy policies of these sites may differ from our own.

Transfer of Data

Certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located within a different jurisdiction than either you or us. In some cases, your information, including personal information, may be transferred to computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction and the data protection laws may be different than those from your jurisdiction.

If you are located outside of the United States and choose to provide information to us, please note that we may transfer the information, including personal information, to the United States and process it there.

If you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

Your consent to this Privacy Policy and providing us with your information represents your agreement to such transfers.

Email Use

Email is not recognized as a secure method of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private or sensitive information to us by email.
