Who we are

Inner Science Institute is committed to protecting your personal privacy and confidential information. Our privacy policy summarizes and clarifies that commitment: it outlines how we safeguard your privacy, how we treat personal (confidential) information, and what choices you have. We understand that for you to fully enjoy the benefits of the internet, we must do everything we can to ensure that your privacy is secure. Our website address is: http://www.innerscience.net.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

When you create an account to take our courses or contact us through our form, we collect basic personal data to better understand and respond to your needs, and provide you with services that may be valuable to you. For example, personally identifiable information will be collected in order for you to purchase products, register for courses, or inquire about upcoming events.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

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

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

If you would like to send us cookies – meaning those of the low sugar, gluten-free chocolate chip kind – note our address and send away:-) We will not only love them, but will also be impressed to discover that you actually read our privacy policy.

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.

Since we do not control these websites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on third party sites if you are concerned. 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.

Payment Page

The security of your personal information is very important to us, and we are committed to protecting the information we collect. While we cannot guarantee absolute security of your personal information, www.innerscience.net uses state-of-the-art technology to keep your personal information—including your billing and account information—as secure as possible.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your data with anyone. Visitor comments, however, may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

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.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Due to the rapidly evolving technologies on the Internet, we may occasionally update this policy. All revisions will be posted to this page.
