What Information do we collect?

Information provided when Users sign up on the Site. When Users register for a subscription through the Site (or update any information previously given to us), we collect personal details which can include: ‎ names, postal addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers, usernames, and demographic information (for example, a User’s occupation).

Information provided through use of the Products.  When using The Courageous Entrepreneur site, users may provide us with additional personal data that might be contained on any receipts, invoices and other items that they submit to us through The Courageous Entrepreneur Products. Users may also provide us with personal data that relates not only to Users themselves but also to certain third-party individuals. We will treat such data in accordance with this Policy. Users may also provide us with certain personal data when they report a problem with The Courageous Entrepreneur Products or send us any other information either directly on the Site.

Information Users submit to blogs, boards, or discussion forums. If Users choose to participate in commenting on any blogs or posting on our board or forums on the Site, they may submit certain Personal Information to us. Please also note that Personal Information that Users submit in this way can be read, collected, or used by other Users. Users control what they submit, we are not responsible for the information (including Personal Information) they choose to submit to blogs, discussion boards or forums we host. We urge Users to be very careful when deciding to submit their Personal Information in this fashion.

Information automatically collected through the Site. Each time Users visit the Site we may automatically collect the following information:

  • Technical Information– this includes the type of mobile or tablet device Users use, a unique device identifier (for example, a device’s IMEI number, the MAC address of the device’s wireless network interface, or the mobile phone number used on a device), network information, operating system, the browser, and time zone settings.
  • Content Information– this includes information stored on Users’ devices such as contact information, friends lists, login information, photos, videos or other digital content.
  • Usage Information– this includes: web traffic data, location data, weblogs, and other communication data, whether this is required for our own billing purposes or otherwise; the resources that Users access; the website(s) visited before browsing to the Site, pages viewed, how long spent on a page, access times; and other information about the use of and actions on our Site.

Testimonials and Feedback.  The Courageous Entrepreneur does not post any personal data relating to its Users along with testimonials, unless we have been given permission to do so by the User. We get in touch with our Users to confirm that they are happy for their personal data to be posted on our Site before anything is posted to request their permission to do so. Users may submit or ask us to withdraw a testimonial by contacting us.

How Personal Information is secured

Personal data on The Courageous Entrepreneur is protected by an email address and password login. Users are responsible for keeping their password secret and should be careful to log out of their accounts after they have finished any given session, especially if they are using a public computer. The security of personal data is important to us. When Users enter sensitive information on our registration forms (such as their name, mailing address, or credit card information), we encrypt that information.

Only employees or service providers that need to access personal data (such as customer service representatives or our data processing teams) will have access to personal data. The Courageous Entrepreneur takes reasonable steps to ensure that it keeps all employees informed and reminded of privacy and security practices.

We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect personal data within our organization. Unfortunately, no transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be completely secure, and transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. If a User has any reason to believe that their interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if they feel that the security of their account might have been compromised), they should notify us of this problem immediately by contacting us.

We note that retention time can also impact the security of personal data and should be considered. In compliance with our obligations under the Data Protection Legislation, we only retain Users’ personal data for so long as necessary to meet the purposes for which it was collected.

Sharing of Personal Information

The Courageous Entrepreneur does not use Users’ personal data to introduce them to third parties.

Email communications

Although we do not use Users’ personal data to send them marketing emails, we may still send non- marketing emails. Non-marketing emails include emails about Users’ accounts and our business dealings with them – for example, if any part of The Courageous Entrepreneur Products is temporarily disrupted or suspended or if there are any upcoming features or developments to The Courageous Entrepreneur Products we need to communicate. In addition, please note that all Users will receive an automatic welcome email necessary to complete their registration process.

If Users do not wish to receive these communications, they have the option of deactivating their account. Users may request that their account be deleted or deactivated from The Courageous Entrepreneur by sending an email.
