What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We store user input data sent through the contact forms on this website, along with meta information about the submissions and meta information for using the membership login, including the time stamp, the origin IP address, and the user agent (browser). Also, third party services may collect information about website visitors. We currently use Google Analytics, S2 Member and Formidable Forms on this website.
We use the Formidable Forms plugin to manage contact form submissions. The information is sent as email messages that only a select few are allowed to access. The information is also stored in the database on our hosting server for backup and later reference purposes. We use the Formidable Forms plugin to safely manage this data. WP Engine hosts this website.
Do you share the information with other parties?
No, although we do use some WordPress plugins on this website that may pass data, including personal information, to external servers to process, such as Google Analytics, Akismet Anti-Spam, S2 Member or Formidable Forms.
We only use WordPress plugins and themes that are hosted by WordPress.org. WordPress.org’s guidelines clearly prohibit tracking users without their explicit informed consent.
