Your privacy is critically important to us at The Aware Show. The personal information collected from this web site may be used for a variety of purposes including identification, registration, authentication, online transactions, and marketing. The personal data of customers and web site visitors may be stored indefinitely and may be collected and processed in one or more databases maintained directly or indirectly by The Website Owner, operator, or their agents. By providing personal information to The Website Owner, operator, or their agents, you agree and understand that The Website Owner, operator, or their agents may access, store and use this information for a variety of purposes including identification, registration, authentication, on-line transactions, and marketing (unless you have opted out of receiving marketing solicitations) in any of the countries in which The Website Owner, operator, or their agents maintain offices, including the United States.

Personal Information

We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so–for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better.

You should be aware that The Website Owner, operator, or their agents will disclose your personal information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is reasonably necessary to (1) comply with legal process; (2) respond to any claims; or (3) protect the rights, property or personal safety of The Website Owner, operator, or their agents, our customers or the public.

 

Information You Provide to Us

We collect information that you provide to us, the amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information. Here are some examples:

  • Basic Account Information: We ask for basic information from you in order to set up your account. For example, we require individuals who sign up for courses through theawareshow.com to provide a username and email address.
  • Transaction and Billing Information: If you buy something from us–a product from awareshow.com for a live or online course, for example–you will provide additional personal and payment information that is required to process the transaction and your payment, such as your name, credit card information, and contact information.
  • Affiliate Information: If you offer our ecommerce Services to sell our products or services to others through our site, you have the option to create a theawareshow.com affiliate account or log into an existing account. As an affiliate, you will typically provide us with information about your financial account for commission payments, such as the email address for your PayPal account and your TaxID/SSN for accounting purposes.
  • Content and Communications With Us: Depending on the Services you use, you may also provide us with information about you through feedback surveys, testimonials, photos, videos, emails and/or written letters. For example, you may write to us for clarity on a question regarding your course, we will have that information, and so will anyone with access to the Internet if you choose to post the feedback on our website or community forums such as Facebook. This might be obvious to you…but it’s not to everyone!

Information We Collect Automatically

We also collect some information automatically:

  • Log Information: Like most online service providers, we collect information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information. We collect log information when you use our Services–for example, when you visit our website on theawareshow.com. We do this for marketing and security reasons. We do not track or store the full IP Address, only the first six digits to track originating country/region, nor do we correlate or store specific IP addresses to a user account or with any unique identifier that will be correlate with a specific user in our system.
  • Usage Information: We collect information about your usage of our Services. For example, we collect information about the actions that users perform on theawareshow.com–in other words, who did what, when and to what thing on a site (e.g., [theawareshowl.com Online user] logged in at [time/date]). As another example, the Kajabi platform tracks information like the last time you entered a course, where you are at in completing the course, and assignments completed or in progress. We also collect information about what happens when you use our Services (e.g., page views, support document searches on theawareshow.com and other parts of our Services). We use this information to, for example, provide our Services to you, as well as get insights on how people use our Services, so we can make our Services better.
  •  Location Information: We may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. We collect and use this information to, for example, calculate how many people visit our Services from certain geographic regions.
  •  Information from Cookies & Other Technologies: A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s hard drive on their computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Pixel tags (also called web beacons) are small blocks of code placed on websites and emails. The Aware Show uses cookies and other technologies like pixel tags to help us identify and track visitors, usage, and access preferences for our Services, as well as track and understand email campaign effectiveness and to deliver targeted ads. For more information about our use of cookies and other technologies for tracking, including how you can control the use of cookies, please see our Cookie Policy below.

Cookies – What They Are and Why They Are Used

Like many companies that provide web sites, The Website Owner, operator, or their agents may use “cookies” in order to better understand and serve the needs of our online visitors. A cookie is a small text file that a web page server places on your hard drive. Cookies function as your identification card and may record passwords, preferences and purchases. Cookies are used to let the web page server know that you have returned to this site. This helps us to be more efficient in serving you because it permits us to determine what information and web pages you may be especially interested in viewing. Cookies also can be used to determine other information, such as the daily visitors to our web site and the pages of the site most frequently visited. Cookies are unique and can only be read by the server that assigns them. They cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses.
