TYPES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED
Celestial Awakenings collects information necessary to providing you with the specific service that you have requested. These services include various types of consultations, classes, parties, and special events. Depending upon the particular service requested, we may collect any of the following types of information: name; address; phone number; email address; birth date; birth time; place of birth; age; marital status; personal information about children, and any additional information needed to accurately prepare for and fulfill the specific service.
PROTECTION OF CHILDREN
It is important to Celestial Awakenings that children’s identity and personal information be fully protected. Therefore, we strongly recommend that parents supervise their children’s online activities. We do not intentionally market to or solicit personal information from any child under the age of 13. If we should receive personal information from a child less than 13 years of age, we will only use that information to respond to the child and/or seek parental consent. Please visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website to learn more about the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We use your personal information for internal use only. We do not sell, distribute, lease, or share this type of information. We may use your information in the following ways: to contact you in order to facilitate your service requests; for internal record keeping; to send you promotional information about new services, special offers, or other information that we think you might be interested in; to send you promotional information about third parties, which you have informed us you are interested in; to contact you for market research purposes; to improve our services; and to customize our website based on your expressed interests.
SHARING OF INFORMATION
Personal information about existing clients may be shared with potential clients who wish to evaluate our services, with the express permission of existing clients.
We may share personal information with governmental agencies or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation. We may do so when: (1) permitted or required by law; or (2) trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud of unauthorized transactions; or (3) investigating fraud, which has already taken place. The information is not provided to these organizations for the purpose of marketing to them.
All of your personal information is stored securely. Only Celestial Awakenings’ owner has access to this information. It is not accessible to third parties. Sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, is taken over the telephone, on Skype, or in person. This completely prevents any possibility for security breaches over the internet.
