Effective date: January 2021

Who we are

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Email Subscribers

We love having people subscribe to the site and collect name and email address so we can notify you of other content being added to the site. On occasions we will also make you aware of other happenings with the Grounded Communications business, upcoming events, new classes, etc. Email addresses may also be used to provide you content via social media services you choose to access. We do sell any email addresses or make them otherwise available to other companies/services. 

Commenting on the site

Comments on the blog, classes, etc will result in capture of certain information. If there were to ever be repeated abusive comments, it would result in the IP address being blocked and potential sharing with legal authorities if any threats were made, etc. I cannot imagine that happening, but the internet gets pretty wild and who knows. 

Community Members

Our members are a central thrust of our business and will be treated with the utmost respect. There are places where community members interact and share information, please use your discretion sharing information there. The community is expected to treat each other respectfully and will be moderated for abusive language, etc. 

Any of the information you submit to us as we process your membership will remain confidential. 

Email Address

As mentioned above, we can be reached via email at info{at}groundedandrising{dot}com. That email account collects name, email address, and IP address and any other fields clearly shown as is standard for emails. It connects to spam detection and allows us to respond as appropriate.

Media

If you upload images to the website or community, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website may be able to download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Who we share your data with

Data about specific users is not shared with any external sites, however, using social media shares could lead to information sharing.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time with the exception of username. Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
