You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the username and password, and you are responsible for all activities, whether by you or by others, that occur under your username or password and within your account. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized or improper use of your username or password or any other breach of security. To help protect against unauthorized or improper use, make sure that you log out at the end of each session requiring your username and password.

It is your responsibility to protect your own username and password from disclosure to others. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to protect your username, password or account information. If you share your username or password with others, they may be able to obtain access to your personal information at your own risk.

We will use our best efforts to keep your username and password(s) private and will not otherwise share your password(s) without your consent, except as necessary when the law requires it or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary, particularly when disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to others or interfering with our rights or property.

SENSITIVE DATA

We often carry out surveys, quizzes and questionnaires to better understand you (our audience) and the community as a whole. This allows us to build a successful business and serve our community by providing the products, services, membership and free content that you'll benefit from the most. It's important to note that some of the questions we ask may provide us with sensitive data about you. We will also collect sensitive data from you if you join our membership or subscribe to our list - either directly, by requesting a free download or by requesting a ticket to a free event hosted by The Breakthrough Year, Brand It Girl, or Samantha Bell.

We require your explicit consent for processing sensitive data.

Where we are required to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of the contract between us and you do not provide us with that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract (for example, to deliver goods or services to you). If you don’t provide us with the requested data, we may have to cancel a product or service you have ordered but if we do, we will notify you at that time.

We will only use your personal data for the purpose it was collected for or a reasonably compatible purpose if necessary. Generally the two key reasons will be for communication and to process your payments and deliver goods/service. In the event that we need to use your details for an unrelated or new purpose we will let you know and explain the legal grounds for processing. Your personal details will never be sold, shared or given to another party without your consent. The only exception is that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent where this is required or permitted by law.

CALIFORNIA ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT

While we are a business based in Australia, we acknowledge that a portion of our visitors and members may be located in California. The California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. – See more at http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our site anonymously, unless they want to access member's only content.

They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We have no access to or control over any information collected by other individuals, companies or entities whose website or materials may be linked to our Website or its Content.

We use Cookies to:
