Personal Information We Collect:
Our Website offers various opportunities for you to voluntarily provide us with your personal information in exchange for a free resource, subscription to our email list, or when you contact us. Should you choose to “opt-in” and provide us with personal information for any of these purposes, we will collect the information you provide. This may include your name, email address, phone number, and the content of any messages you send us. We may also process personal information in the form of comments, images, or videos that you create or share on our blogs, social media pages, or any other online forum, whether currently available or in the future. By providing this information, you are voluntarily consenting to our collection, processing, and retention of it.
If you complete the “contact us” section of our website or provide us with any other communication data via email, social media messaging or posts, or text messages, we may collect information such as your name, email address, phone number, the information you share on the respective social media platform, and the content of your electronic messages. We process this data as it is in our legitimate interest to engage in communication, address your inquiries or concerns, and maintain records of such communication.
If you become a customer, we will collect additional information necessary to fulfill the purchase and sale of the goods or services you request. This information may include your name, email address, billing address, credit card or payment information, and other details required to complete your order. We collect and process this data to fulfill our contractual obligation to process your order, and we do not retain this information longer than necessary. Payment processing is performed by third-party data processors, and we do not retain or access your payment information.
If you are on our email list, either by your consent or due to our legitimate interest in direct marketing, we may use your data to send you targeted social media advertisements or upload your information to our social media account to create look-a-like audiences. Our emails comply with the CAN-SPAM Act, and they will clearly identify the sender and provide instructions on how to unsubscribe or contact us with questions or concerns.
We may also collect information through Automatic Data Collection Technology. We may use standard “cookies” to recognize your browser periodically. These cookies do not contain personally identifiable information, and we do not use any other mechanisms to capture data on our website. We employ both session cookies (which expire when you close your browser) and persistent cookies (which remain on your computer until deleted). You can configure your web browser to accept or decline cookies. Disabling cookies may affect the functionality of some parts of the Website. Our Website does not respond to Do Not Track signals sent by your browser.
Additionally, we may collect data regarding how you use our Website, your browsing behavior, computer equipment, IP address, internet connection, and other choices you make. This data may be obtained through Google Analytics and Facebook Pixels for statistical analysis, website improvement, and personalized content delivery. If we use these technologies, we adhere to the policies of these third-party companies. We may also receive personal data from third parties, including Google, social media platforms, search engines, PayPal, Stripe, and other third-party payment processors.
Lawful Grounds for Processing:
In compliance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we confirm that we have lawful grounds for processing the information we collect from you. When you provide personal information via our “contact us” page or any other form of electronic communication, we process your data based on our legitimate interest in responding to user or customer inquiries. If you choose to receive communication from us by “opting in” and provide your name and email address in exchange for a free resource or training, we process your data for the purpose for which it was collected, based on your affirmative consent. We may periodically send you additional email marketing based on our legitimate interest in marketing to individuals interested in our products or services. We may also offer you the option to join our email list to receive our newsletter, information about our products and services, and other relevant information, based on your decision to opt in for our free resources, and we obtain your consent for these activities. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us to edit, update, or delete your information. We do not collect sensitive data or information related to criminal offenses or convictions.
How and Why It’s Collected:
We collect your personal information when you voluntarily provide it to us in exchange for a free or paid resource, product, or service, or when you complete a form or send an email to contact us. This information is collected to provide you with the resource or service you have requested. We may also use your personal information to keep you informed about the products and services you have chosen to receive, as well as related or similar offerings that may interest you. Your information is collected when you choose to enter it manually and opt in to join our list. We do not collect any information without your active consent or in exchange for a free resource.
We may also receive data from third parties, such as Google Analytics, Facebook, and other advertising platforms, technical service providers, and payment processors. We make every effort to engage only with third parties compliant with GDPR and have either entered into data processing agreements with them or reviewed their data processing policies to ensure compliance.
How We Use Your Information:
We use the personally identifiable information you provide to fulfill the service or product you have requested, including free resources, trainings, newsletters, periodic promotional emails, and to inform you of any policy or service changes. Your personal information may also be used to create “look-a-like” audiences in our digital marketing campaigns, involving the uploading of your information into our social media advertising efforts.
For purchases, we utilize your billing address and credit card information solely to complete your transactions, and we do not retain or share this sensitive information. By providing this information, you acknowledge and agree that we may use it to send emails, bill credit cards for purchased programs or products, or for marketing purposes, such as using comments.
If you make a purchase, we may use your personal information to send essential updates regarding the products or services you have acquired or to provide necessary information related to our offerings.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information:
Additional non-identifying information may be collected to analyze how individuals access and use our Website. This information is not used for any other purposes, and it does not inform automated decisions. We may also
record certain information to enhance user experience, such as your IP address, which is used to diagnose technical server issues and determine which parts of our website receive the most traffic. Your IP address does not personally identify you and is used exclusively for the limited purposes outlined above to improve user experience.
How Information is Stored and Shared:
We take measures to ensure the confidentiality of your information, which is stored in a data management system. We may share your information with select parties, including those providing technical support for our website and members of our team, such as legal and accounting professionals. These parties will maintain the confidentiality of your information and not share it with unrelated parties to the best of our abilities. Your information will not be shared, sold, or disclosed to any other entity without your consent, except when required by law or government regulations. We require all third parties to handle your personal information in compliance with the law and use it only for specific, necessary purposes.
Please be aware that we may disclose your information if required by law, in good faith belief to protect our website’s rights or those of Classy Career Girl LLC, or to prevent or address suspected criminal activity or to protect the safety and rights of other users. Information may also be shared in the event of a sale of Classy Career Girl International, LLC or any of its branches, or as deemed necessary with joint venture partners or affiliate marketers. We will always take reasonable measures to safeguard and protect your information.
As a data controller, we determine what information is collected, how long it is retained, and for what purposes the Personal Information will be used. We use a third-party company as a data processor to store information like names and email addresses that make up our email list. We have made every effort to ensure that all third-party data processors we use comply with GDPR regulations.
Information Protection & Security:
We employ reasonable online security measures to safeguard your personal data, including data you provide and data collected automatically. We also share your data with reputable third-party vendors who follow generally accepted security standards. Our website uses a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to facilitate secure data transfer, though we cannot guarantee absolute security. In the event of a data breach, we will promptly notify the necessary parties with available information.
While we take precautions to protect the information we collect and prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we cannot be held responsible if unauthorized third parties gain access to your information without our consent. If our website is compromised, your personal information may be accessed by these unauthorized parties. By using our Website, you agree that we are not liable for such actions and release us from any and all claims related to the unauthorized use of your information by third parties.
We have determined that it is not necessary to appoint a Data Protection Officer, as our core activities do not involve processing operations that require regular and systematic monitoring of data subjects or the processing of sensitive data on a large scale.
We will retain the minimum amount of Personal Information necessary, including names, email addresses, and behavior tracking, for as long as you choose to remain on our mailing list. Additional Personal Information will be retained as long as required to fulfill the purpose for which it was initially collected, such as completing a purchase. We will also retain and use collected information as necessary to comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes, or as otherwise reasonably determined. If you choose to be removed from our database, your information will be deleted and no longer retained.
Your Rights to Control Your Information:
You have the right to update, edit, or delete your information from our database. You can “unsubscribe” from our list at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” button at the bottom of any email we send. If you wish to request access to information we have about you, correct or edit information, or unsubscribe from our email list, or remove/delete your information from our database, you can do so at any time, free of charge, by reaching out to us at:
