Information Collection And Use

We collect several different types of information for various purposes to provide and improve our Service to you.

Types of Data Collected

Personal Data

Certain visitors to our website choose to interact with our Service in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address, and we collect email addresses from those who wish to receive updates from us via email.

In each case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of your interaction with our Service. The Motivation Mindset does not disclose Personal Data other than as described below. Users can always refuse to supply the requested Personal Data, with the understanding that it may prevent them from engaging in or availing themselves of certain website-related activities and services.

We may use your Personal Data to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any or all of these communications by following the unsubscribe link in any email we send or by contacting us.

The Motivation Mindset also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. The Motivation Mindset only discloses logged-in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

User Accounts

For some website functionality (e.g., making an online purchase or contributing site content), we will need to create a User account for you that allows you to log in to the website. This process ensures that only authorized individuals can access your data and perform actions via your User account. The purpose of these user accounts is to protect your personal data behind login security, and to protect the integrity of our site and the servers that run it.

Data collected will generally involve your name and email address, at a minimum, but may include your postal address if it is required for online purchases. If you do not register for an online account then no such data will be collected in this regard.

Pursuant to GDPR Article 6(1)(d), User accounts are necessary for the purpose of providing the functionality that you have requested, and we consider that protecting the integrity and security of your data is protecting your interests under GDPR.

We will store the User account information you provide to us in our website database, as this data is necessary for your website account to function when you access our Service. We will NOT use this data for any other purpose without your express consent. For the purpose of maintaining the integrity of our systems, we may also store this data in system backups, which are encrypted and held securely by our technology partner SG Hosting, Inc. (“SiteGround”). As an authorized Data Processor, The Motivation Mindset has executed a Data Processing Agreement (DPA) with SiteGround Hosting. Their privacy policy can be found here.

  • your browser's language preference setting;
  • the web page that referred you to our site;
  • the date and time of each visit;
  • time spent on each page;
  • unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data.

Cookies are stored on your device and accessed by our website each time you return to it. Other tracking technologies used include beacons, tags, and scripts that collect and aggregate information, which allows us to analyze and improve our Service.

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 access or use some portions of our Service, or they may not function as intended.

Examples of Cookies we use:

Legal Basis for Processing Personal Data Under General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

If you are from the European Economic Area (EEA), our legal basis for collecting and using the Personal Data described in this Privacy Policy depends on the specific data we collect and the context in which we collect it.

The Motivation Mindset, LLC may process your Personal Data because:

  • We need to execute a contract with you;
  • You have given us permission to do so;
  • The processing is in our legitimate interests and is not overridden by your rights;
  • It is necessary to process your payment;
  • We are required to do so to comply with the law.

Retention of Data

The Motivation Mindset, LLC will retain your Personal Data only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your Personal Data to the extent necessary to provide our Service to you, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies. We also retain Usage Data for internal analysis purposes, and to strengthen the security or improve the functionality of our Service.

Transfer Of Data

Your information, including Personal Data, may be transferred to – and maintained on – computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.

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

Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

The Motivation Mindset, LLC will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and no transfer of your Personal Data will take place to an organization or a country unless there are adequate controls in place including the security of your data and other personal information.

Disclosure Of Data

The Motivation Mindset will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.

The Motivation Mindset discloses Personal Data and potentially personally-identifying only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need the information in order to process it on our behalf or to facilitate provision of our Service, and (ii) have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside your home country. By using our Service, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Legal Requirements

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, The Motivation Mindset discloses Personal Data and potentially personally-identifying information only if we believe, in good faith, that doing so is necessary to:

  • Comply with a legal obligation;
  • Protect and defend the rights or property of The Motivation Mindset, LLC;
  • Prevent or investigate potential wrongdoing in connection with the Service;
  • Protect the personal safety of Users of the Service or the public;
  • To protect against legal liability

Security Of Data

Access to Personal Data is strictly controlled by individual user accounts. We operate dedicated security scanning and access control software on our website. This software is responsible for limiting login attempts to our site, blocking potentially malicious attempts to access our Service, and regularly performing full file system scans.

Where data is stored in a cloud facility (such as the storage of website backup files), that data is encrypted both ‘in transit’ and ‘at rest’ – meaning that all data is securely obscured both during the process of transfer to the cloud provider, and then additionally when it is in storage at its final location.

This website is also secured via SSL encryption, which means that all traffic to and from our servers is encrypted. This applies to our own administrative access to the website as well as that of users of our services.

While the security of your data is important to us, it is important to understand that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially established and generally accepted means to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Your Rights Under General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA), you have certain rights regarding the protection of your Personal Data. It is the policy of The Motivation Mindset, LLC to allow you to correct, amend, delete, or limit the use of your Personal Data in accordance with those rights.

Specifically, you have the following data protection rights.

  • You have the right to request the prevention of further processing of your data while your objection is considered;

Service Providers

We may employ third-party companies and individuals (“Service Providers”) to perform Service-related services. These services may include facilitating certain aspects or features of the Service, providing the Service on our behalf, or helping us analyze how our Service is used.

To the extent necessary, these third parties have access to your Personal Data only to perform their tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

Analytics

We may use third-party Service Providers to monitor and analyze the use of our Service.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google, Inc. that tracks and reports the sources of website traffic. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.

We use Google Analytics to better understand what people look at on our website. When people visit our site, information about their visit (such as which pages they look at, how long they spend on the site and so on) is sent in anonymous form to Google Analytics, so there is no way to identify individuals from the data.

As analytics information is not Personal Data, we do not specifically ask for your prior consent.

You can opt out of having your activity on the Service made available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on - https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about your activity when using the Internet.

For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy Terms web page: http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

As an authorized Data Processor, The Motivation Mindset has executed a Data Processing Agreement (DPA) with Google, Inc. for Google Analytics.

Behavioral Remarketing

The Motivation Mindset, LLC may use remarketing services to advertise on third-party websites to you after you visit our site. We and our third-party vendors use cookies to inform, optimize and serve ads based on your past use of our Service.

Google AdWords

Google AdWords remarketing service is provided by Google Inc.

You can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize the Google Display Network ads by visiting the Google Ads Settings page: http://www.google.com/settings/ads.

Google also recommends installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on – https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout – for your web browser. This add-on provides Internet users with the ability to prevent their data from being collected and used by Google Analytics.

For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page: http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

As an authorized Data Processor, The Motivation Mindset has executed a Data Processing Agreement (DPA) with Google, Inc. for Google AdWords.

Facebook

Like the vast majority of commercial websites, we use social media cookies from Facebook on our site. The cookies are placed by Facebook, and we use them to understand the effectiveness of social media campaigns that we operate.

If your browser is not logged into Facebook when you access our website, then Facebook is not able to collect any personal information about your visit, and so we do not specifically ask for your prior consent.

If you are logged into Facebook when you use our Service, then Facebook will be able to see that you did. We do not have access to the details of that personal data, as you have consented to share it with Facebook, not us. We only get to see anonymized data about the numbers of people who have responded to our advertising or other social media activity.

Facebook, may use cookies, web beacons, and other storage technologies to collect or receive information from the websites you visit and use that information to provide measurement services and target ads. You can learn about Facebook’s privacy policy here.

Facebook adheres to the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising established by the Digital Advertising Alliance. You can opt-out of the marketing activities performed by Facebook and other participating companies. The following resources can help you to understand and implement those choices, based on your location.

You can also use your browser’s ‘private’ or ‘incognito’ mode to browse websites anonymously.

For more information on the privacy practices of Facebook, please visit Facebook’s Data Policy: https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation.

Payments

We may provide paid products and/or services within the Service. In that case, we use third-party services for payment processing (“Payment Processors").

We do not store or collect your payment card details. That information is provided directly to our Payment Processors whose use of your personal information is governed by their Privacy Policy. These Payment Processors 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 payment information.

The payment processors we work with are:

Infusionsoft — https://www.infusionsoft.com/legal/privacy-policy

Stripe - https://stripe.com/us/privacy

PayPal — https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full

Website Security

To protect your Personal Data and the integrity of our Service, we employ Wordfence security by Defiant, Inc. The Wordfence Firewall provides real-time protection of our website against a variety of threats. To enable certain security features of the protection system, Wordfence places Cookies on your device. You can learn more about the details of these Cookies and their purpose here.

As an authorized Data Processor, The Motivation Mindset has executed a Data Processing Agreement (DPA) with Defiant, Inc. Their privacy policy can be found here.

Email Marketing

If you complete a signup form subscribing to receive information from our Service that Personal Data is  transmitted to an email autoresponder service. We employ GetResponse Sp. z o.o. (“GetResponse”) for this purpose.

We may use GetResponse to communicate with you by email. To protect your privacy, we use a verified opt-in system before adding you to any newsletter or other email subscription. You always have the option to opt-out of such communications using the link contained in each autoresponder message. If you have difficulties opting out, you may contact us by sending an email to support[at]themotivationmindset.com.

As an authorized Data Processor, The Motivation Mindset has executed a Data Processing Agreement (DPA) with GetResponse. Their privacy policy can be found here.

Spam Detection

When you leave a comment on our website or submit a message via a contact form, we may share the information about that interaction with an automated spam detection service. Our website may employ the Akismet anti-spam service offered by Automattic, Inc. or the Recaptcha service offered by Google, Inc. With the help of these services, comments provided by real people are distinguished from spam.

We consider it in our legitimate interest to use spam detection services in this way under GDPR Article 6(1)(f). It enables us to maintain the security and integrity of our Service by minimizing spam, and to effectively deliver our Service to ‘real’ Users. On balance, we consider this policy has a negligible impact on individuals’ privacy.

Akismet

All information is sent to a server in the United States, where it is analyzed and stored for four days, for comparison purposes. If a comment is classified as spam, the data will be retained. The information retained includes the name and email address entered, the IP address of the device used, the comment content, the referring web page, the browser used, the computer operating system and the time of entry.

Automattic is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant).

Further information on Akismet’s collection and use of the data can be found in Automattic’s privacy policy: https://automattic.com/privacy/.

Users are welcome to use pseudonyms or refrain from entering their name or email address. You can completely prevent the transfer of data by not using our comment system.

Recaptcha

The Recaptcha functionality prevents automated programs (‘bots’) from abusing our contact forms and comments sections with spam messages or other malicious activity.

Before submitting a contact form to us, you will be asked to check the ‘I Am Not A Robot’ checkbox. In the background, Google will perform a number of checks that are aimed at understanding the likelihood of your being a ‘real’ person, as opposed to an automated system. If it is in any doubt, it will ask you to perform one or more activities (such as identifying particular items within an image) that only a ‘real’ person can do.

The exact method that Google uses to perform this validation is a closely-guarded secret, but it does involve checking your activity on our (and other) websites and the presence (or absence) of any Google Cookies on your device.

Links To Other Sites

Our Service may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.

We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third-party sites or services.

Our Service also contains affiliate links. You can find out more about those links on our Affiliate Disclosure page.

Business Transfers

If The Motivation Mindset, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that The Motivation Mindset goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, User information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of The Motivation Mindset may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Children’s Privacy

Our Service does not address nor it is intended for anyone under the age of 18 (“Children”).

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children have provided us with Personal Data, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers as soon as practicable.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

The Motivation Mindset may periodically update this Privacy Policy, at its sole discretion. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page and updating the “effective date” listed at the top. You are encouraged to review this Privacy Policy periodically for any changes. Your continued use of our Service after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
