Your privacy is important to us. While we are a small company, protecting your online data is something that we take seriously and that we care about.
We aim to care for your data in a way that builds your trust in us as a company that you are choosing to do business with. We want you to know what information of yours that we collect and how we store and protect your information.
We’re making an effort to be more transparent in how we collect and use your data, and to make it easier for you to communicate with us if you have any concerns about the protection of your data.
Please take a moment to read the following policy to learn how we handle your personal information.
Why we collect personal information

How we collect personal information
We might ask for your contact information when you correspond with us, call us to make a purchase, or register as a user on our website. When you ask to be included in an email mailing list, such as subscribing to a newsletter, we also collect your personal information.
Due to the new GDPR policies, we ask for your explicit consent when you sign up for any of our email lists.
If you do not agree when we ask you to confirm by selecting yes, “I consent to receive information about educational materials, services, and special offers by email,” we cannot send you any kind of email marketing whatsoever.
How personal information is used
We will never bombard you with a high volume of emails that feel like spam. It is our intention to only send emails that will be helpful, and relevant to you.
This may include blog articles, videos, announcements of new courses, and other educational materials.
Facebook Advertising In September of 2017, we began paying to advertise on Facebook.
With this change, we may give your email to Facebook to show you ads on Facebook later. Or, if you visit growinghumankindness.com, a piece of code called Facebook Pixel may be used to track the pages that you visit on the Growing Human(kind)ness website. This is for the purpose of enabling us to show you ads on Facebook at a later time.
Growing Humankindness LLC will not share your contact information nor personal preferences with organizations outside of our company for any reason.
At times we may be required by law or legal process to disclose your personal information.
Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
