PRIVACY POLICY


 

Note: This Privacy Policy was last updated on January 1, 2021


 

This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect through: (1) our website operated by Colleen Kelly Services as agent and on behalf of Anne Thornton LLC (referred to herein as "we", "us", or "our"); (2) other websites and online services that we own, operate, or make available and that link to the Privacy Policy and (3) to all other general inquiries that we may receive of any type or format.

 

We are committed to protecting the personal information and right to privacy of our consumers and users (referred to as "you" or "your" in this Privacy Policy). We recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of individual-specific information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or device (“Personal Information”).  If you have any questions or concerns about our policy, or our practices with regards to your Personal Information, please contact us at info@thorsoutdoorscienceacademy.com.

 

When you visit our website https://www.thorsoutdoorscienceacademy.com, and use our services, you trust us with your Personal Information. We take your privacy very seriously. In this privacy policy, we seek to explain to you in the clearest way possible what information we collect, how we use it and what rights you have in relation to it. If you are asked to submit registration details via this site, you may be requested to agree to additional terms regarding our use of your Personal Information, and those additional terms will apply in that context. Any additional terms will be provided for your review at the time of registration. We encourage you to read this Privacy Policy before you send or share Personal Information with us or use our websites. We also encourage you to read it again when you return to our website. If there are any terms in this privacy policy that you do not agree with, please discontinue use of our website (such as https://www.thorsoutdoorscienceacademy.com), and/or any related services, sales, marketing or events (we refer to them collectively in this privacy policy as the "Services").

 

WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

 

We do not collect Personal Information at the present time although we may in the future and will then update our policies accordingly. The type of Personal Information we may collect will depend upon what we will need to provide you with the product or service you are interested in. 

 

Please note that we will also be utilizing the services of a third-party independent merchandise company, who will be also collecting Personal Information from you. This merchandise company is not owned by us. You can access the merchandise company information, including their website and privacy policy, by clicking HERE

   

All Personal Information that you provide must be true, complete and accurate, and you must notify us of any changes to such Personal Information.

 

You will be using the services of our merchandise company, which is separate from us. You will move away from this site when engaging in those activities and those sites will have their own privacy policies. Therefore, please review those privacy policies before using those separate sites. See also “Third-Party Site Links” below.

 

We may receive information about you, including Personal Information, from third parties. For example, if you are on another website and you opt-in to receive information from us, that website will forward to us your email address and other information about you so that we may contact you as requested.

 

Google Account Authentication. Google’s authentication method called OAuth 2.0 is an open standard authorization protocol that allows third parties to obtain your user data without access to your passwords. By enabling OAuth 2.0, you permit third party applications and services, such as Google, to provide your third party account information, such as user ID, name, location, and IP address to Credit IQ, solely for identification purposes during login. If stored, we will store such account information in a database hosted in Amazon Web Services. Credit IQ will not need to know or store your passwords for third party applications and services. OAuth 2.0 allows a Credit IQ User to revoke Credit IQ’s access at any time in Google settings. If a Credit IQ User revokes Credit IQ’s access, our Service does not have access to any of the user data anymore. If OAuth 2.0 is not supported, we will require your account username and password in order to provide the Service.

 

USAGE TRACKING: USE OF IP ADDRESSES

 

We automatically collect certain information when you visit, use or navigate the Services. This information may include device and usage information, such as your IP address, browser and device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, device name, country, location, information about how and when you use our Services and other technical information. 

 

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are using the Internet. Web servers, the main computers that serve up web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. This information is primarily needed to maintain the security and operation of our Services, and for our internal analytics and reporting purposes. As permitted under applicable law, we collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, gathering and analyzing aggregated information, creating a better experience for users and auditing the use of our sites. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that your session will be logged, but you remain anonymous to us. We will seek to link your IP address when we feel it is necessary to protect our sites and other users from harm and to prevent criminal misconduct. Please see the section on “Use of "Cookies”."


 

USE OF "COOKIES"

 

Like many businesses, we also collect information through cookies and similar technologies. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make web use easier for you by saving your preferences while you are at our sites. The use of cookies is an industry standard, and as such, you will find them at most major websites. By showing how and when users use a site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to our sites are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use the information from cookies only to provide services better tailored to your needs and for the protection of our websites and users from potential harm. We never save passwords or credit card information in cookies.


You can find out more about this in our Cookies Policy HERE

 

We use persistent tracking cookies on our websites which are cookies that stay in your web browser between visits. These cookies can also be used to show us which sites you have visited before entering our sites and which sites you may go to if you leave, especially if you access the registered user parts of our sites by using your social media log-in credentials. We use these to capture analytical information about our visitors that helps us to improve the performance of our website and create a better experience. These cookies allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors, to provide content related to a prior visit to our websites, to see how visitors move around the sites and the products and services they are interested in when they are using them and to see what other types of products and services they may be interested in. This helps us to improve the way our websites work, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily. We collect cookie identifiers, or others such as the ones used for analytics and marketing; tools and protocols, such as IP (Internet Protocol) addresses; applications; devices; and other similar data. 

We may also use cookies which allow us or third parties to advertise our products and services on websites that you access after you have visited our sites. You may also see advertisements from us if other websites you visit capture through a cookie that you have been on our sites. These ad preference cookies are often used by search engine sites. Our cookies can be disabled as indicated below. To prevent this advertising, you may also need to review the cookies disabling information on the other sites you visit.

 

Most browsers are set up to accept cookies. If you want to change your cookie preferences, you can do so through your browser settings or refuse the cookies when you enter any of our websites. You may also limit the information we gain from certain cookies by logging directly into the registered areas of our sites rather than by logging in by using your social media log-in credentials. Please remember that our cookies are often used to give you certain functionality and without them you may not be able to use some of our websites e.g. save properties from our listings.

 

You can also remove cookies that have already been set in your browser via your browser settings.

THIRD-PARTY SITE LINKS

 

You should be aware that when you are on our website you could be directed to other third-party sites that are beyond our control, including, without limitation, to the website of our merchandise company who will be managing our residential community. There are links to other sites from us, which take you outside our service. For example, if you "click" on a banner, an advertisement or a search result, the "click" may take you off our sites. These other sites may include sites of other advertisers, sponsors and partners that may use their logo with ours as part of a co-branding agreement. These other sites may send their own cookies to visitors to collect data or solicit information. We do not control these sites and therefore is not responsible for their content. The inclusion of hyperlinks to any other sites by us does not imply any endorsement of the material on such sites, nor any association with their operators. Our policies do not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, which is beyond our control. Remember that whenever you give out Personal Information online, that information may be collected and used by people you do not know.

SECURING INFORMATION

 

We take reasonable technical and organizational measures in accordance with applicable laws to safeguard users' Personal Information. While we strive to protect your Personal information and therein your privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any Personal Information you disclose online, and you therefore disclose such Personal Information at your own risk.

 

We limit access to Personal Information to those individuals and organizations who we believe reasonably need to receive such information to provide our services or to do their jobs, and we take the precautions we deem reasonable to protect the security of users' Personal Information. However, as in many computer systems, internet applications and software programs, unauthorized use, failure of hardware or software, etc. may be injurious to the confidentiality of users' Personal Information.

 

Because the security of all Personal Information associated with our users is of utmost concern to us, we periodically review and improve our security when new technology becomes available. This includes use of software which encrypts or distorts data submitted to us relating to an application. If users have any questions about security, please contact us using the information in the "Contact Information" section.

 

We will only keep your Personal Information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting or other legal requirements). We do not anticipate keeping your Personal Information for longer than two (2) years. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or anonymize it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

 

The safety and security of your Personal Information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Website like message boards. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Website.

CHILDREN'S PRIVACY

What do we need to do here?

ANSWER: One suggestion is to implement a system using a short form to be completed which requires the minor to have his/her guardian sign off. I would also suggest you view other sites that have child users, to see how they handle. The objective here is to have some level of protection against children giving up their personal info on the website with parental consent.

Our Website is not intended for children under 13 years of age unless under the supervision of a parent or legal custodian. No one under age 13 may provide any Personal Information to or on the Website unless under the supervision of a parent or legal custodian. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 unless under the supervision of a parent or legal custodian. IF YOU ARE UNDER AGE 13, DO NOT USE OR PROVIDE ANY INFORMATION ON THIS WEBSITE OR THROUGH ANY OF ITS FEATURES, REGISTER ON THE WEBSITE, MAKE ANY PURCHASES THROUGH THE WEBSITE, USE ANY OF THE INTERACTIVE OR PUBLIC COMMENT FEATURES OF THIS WEBSITE, OR PROVIDE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT YOURSELF TO US, INCLUDING YOUR NAME, ADDRESS, TELEPHONE NUMBER, EMAIL ADDRESS, OR ANY SCREEN NAME OR USER NAME YOU MAY USE UNLESS AND UNTIL YOUR PARENT OR LEGAL CUSTODIAN HAS CONSENTED AND HAS SUBMITTED A CONSENT FORM THROUGH OUR WEBSITE. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental/legal custodian consent, we will delete that information. If you are a parent or legal guardian and you believe that your child under age 13 may have provided personally identifiable information through any of our websites, please contact us using the information in the "Contact Information" section. 

 

California residents under 16 years of age may have additional rights regarding the collection and sale of their personal information. Please see Notice to California Residents for more information.

 

DATA TRANSFERS – NO INTERNATIONAL USERS

 

We do not target, and therefore we do not anticipate any international customers or users. If you are a citizen resident or are residing in the European Union or United Kingdom, do not provide your Personal Information to us until you contact us first using the information below under “Contact Information”.
