Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this Policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and disclose and make use of personal information. We are taking a global approach to data protection to help ensure that you benefit from control and clarity. We are committed to putting you first and working every day to maintain the trust you put in us. The following outlines our privacy policy.


“Agreement” or “contract” means all of the documents which you and the Company have signed and the Credit Card Authorization Form you have signed.

“Client” or “you” means any purchaser and/or user of any of our Programs, Subscription Services and Online Materials.

The platform we offer at our website is referred to as the “Site”.

“Terms of Use” means our Terms of Use, which can be found here

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into, and considered a part of, the Terms of Use. 


When we use the term “personal information” in this Privacy Policy, we mean information that identifies, or can be used to identify, an individual. This may take the form of an identification number, name, title, e-mail address, payment information, telephone number(s) or home address. Personal information does not include information that has been appropriately anonymized or deidentified or information that is publicly available from government records. Note that, under this Privacy Policy, personal information does not include any information you post online that is viewable to the public.
