How We Collect and Use Information
We also collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate online through the Site. For example, we may collect information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, which allows us, among other things, to improve the delivery of our web pages to you and to measure traffic on the Site. We also may use a standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie” to enhance your experience with the Site. Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. By showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies help us deliver advertisements, identify how many unique users visit us, and track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the Site where you may have entered preference information before. The Site also may use web beacons (single-pixel graphic files also known as “transparent GIFs”) to access cookies and to count users who visit the Site or open HTML-formatted email messages.
If you register for one of our courses or paid programs, you will be asked to provide additional information. This may include information such as mailing address or phone number, in case we need to contact you about the course. This information is stored in our secured server, maintained by WP Engine and the only people who have access to it are members of the DIY MFA team who help run the course, manage enrollment, or maintain the members website.
When it comes to your payment information, we take matters even more seriously. We use Stripe as our payment gateway. This system masks your payment information such that we can only view the essentials that allow us to deliver your course materials, or track and confirm your payments. If at any time you update your payment information via your profile page on the membership site, your information will be updated directly into Stripe, where it will continue to stay masked and secure.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online – for example on message boards, web logs, through email, or in chat areas – that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides us. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.
Be aware that we may occasionally release information about our visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law or to protect the rights, property or safety of users of the Site or the public.
Please also note that as our business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that we sell some or all of our assets, or one or more of our websites is acquired by another company, information about our users may be among the transferred assets.
How do we store your information?
Your information is stored at the list server that delivers DIYMFA.com newsletters and email updates. Your information can only be accessed by those who help manage those lists in order to deliver those email updates and newsletters.
All of the newsletters or emails that are sent to you by DIYMFA.com include an unsubscribe link in them. You can remove yourself at any time from our newsletters or mailing list by clicking on the unsubscribe link that can be found in every communication that we send you.
Although it is highly unlikely, this policy may be changed at any time at our discretion. If we should update this policy, we will post the updates to this page on our Website.
