Privacy Policy

Shannon Ethridge, LLC

 

Your privacy is extremely important to us and we are committed to fair practices that protect your information. This Privacy Policy is provided to explain our information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

 

Scope of this Privacy Policy

 

Please be aware that this Privacy Policy does not govern all the information we may process but it does govern the handling of personal information we receive from our clients and customers. In all instances, we are committed to transparency with our clients and customers and protecting your data privacy.

 

Sources of Personal Data

 

We obtain information about individuals primarily in these ways:

 

When you visit our Sites or contact us directly about becoming a customer or client about obtaining other information from us

When you become a customer or client

When you contact us for help desk services

When you provide personal information to us externally such as at events or networking get-togethers.

This Privacy Policy governs how we collect and process information obtained from your visits to our Sites, when you contact us directly in some manner, or when you engage with us during external venues.

 

Definitions

 

This Privacy Policy relates to information collected by Shannon Ethridge, LLC, its employees, and contractors collectively referred to in this Privacy Policy as “we” or “us” through the use of our Sites, their features, the services we provide and information available through our Sites.

 

“You” or “your” refers to the individual who uses our Sites, features, or services, or accesses available information, or engages with us directly by email, telephone, or in person.

 

“Cookies” are files containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

 

As used in this Privacy Policy, the terms “using” and “processing” information include using cookies on a computer, subjecting information to statistical or other analysis, or handling information in any way, including but not limited to collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within our organization.

 

“Sites” include our company websites, our private and public Facebook pages, and our third party transaction pages used for sales and “opt-in” opportunities.

 

We collect information from three types of individuals:

 

Our customers are individuals and businesses who have purchased or signed up for one of our online products.

Subscribers are individuals who sign up for free or paid coaching content from our Sites. If you submit your email to download a PDF, or to sign up for our email list, you are probably a subscriber. Subscriber data includes but is not limited to first name, last name, phone number, and email address.

Individuals at external venues who provide information in order to sign up for our email list for the purpose of receiving information about our products and services, newsletters, and announcements, etc., and individuals who provide comments on our blog posts.

 

What Information Do We Collect?

 

Depending on your use of our Sites or direct interaction with us, we collect two types of information: personal information and non-personal information. This information resides on a third party server operated and managed by The Endurance International Group, Inc. and their subsidiaries (“we,” “us” or “Endurance”) are a leading provider of online tools for small businesses to establish and build their web presence, get found in online search, and connect with customers through social media, email marketing, and more. Their brands include Constant Contact, Bluehost, HostGator, Domain.com, iPage, and others found at https://www.endurance.com/our-brands/

In providing us with your personal information and using our Sites and services, you agree that intentional misconduct will be the sole standard used to measure our non-compliance with this policy.

 

Could My Information Be Transferred To Other Countries?

 

We are an LLC incorporated in the United States. We do not operate offices in other countries as of the date of this Privacy Policy. Therefore we do not have measures in place to directly transfer your personal information to other countries. However, personal information that you publish on any of our Sites or submit for publication on any of our Sites may be accessible, via the Internet, around the world. In such cases, we cannot prevent the use or misuse of such information by others.

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, we will only use personal information for the purposes described herein, or as otherwise disclosed to you at the time we request personal information from you.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

 

From time to time we may change our Privacy Policy. We will notify you when such changes apply directly and significantly to the use or disclosure of your personal information. We will not generally notify customers or subscribers of insignificant changes that do not materially affect our use of your personal information.
