Privacy Policy

Effective Date: November, 2013

The following Privacy Policy governs the online information collection practices of Partnerwerks, Inc.. (“we” or “us”). Specifically, it outlines the types of information that we gather about you while you are using our websites (christopheravery.com, leadershipgift.com, theresponsibilityprocess.com) (the “Sites”), and the ways in which we use this information. This Privacy Policy, including our children’s privacy statement, does not apply to any information you may provide to us or that we may collect offline and/or through other means (for example, at a live event, via telephone, or through the mail).

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. By visiting and using the Sites, you agree that your use of our Sites, and any dispute over privacy, is governed by this Privacy Policy. Because the Web is an evolving medium, we may need to change our Privacy Policy at some point in the future, in which case we’ll post the changes to this Privacy Policy on this website and update the Effective Date of the policy to reflect the date of the changes. By continuing to use the Sites after we post any such changes, you accept the Privacy Policy as modified. 

Partnerwerks will not rent or sell personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. It is Partnerwerks’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

All of the broadcast emails that are sent to you from our sites include an unsubscribe link in them. You can remove yourself at any time from our newsletters or mailing list by clicking on the unsubscribe link that can be found in every communication that we send you.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, Partnerwerks collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Partnerwerks’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Partnerwerks’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Partnerwerks may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Partnerwerks also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our Sites. Partnerwerks only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Partnerwerks’ websites choose to interact with Partnerwerks in ways that require Partnerwerks to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Partnerwerks gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at our Sites to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Partnerwerks are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Partnerwerks collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Partnerwerks. Partnerwerks does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics
Partnerwerks may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Partnerwerks may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Partnerwerks does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Partnerwerks discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Partnerwerks’ behalf or to provide services available at Partnerwerks’ websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Partnerwerks’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Partnerwerks will not rent or sell personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Partnerwerks discloses personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Partnerwerks believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Partnerwerks, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Partnerwerks website and have supplied your email address, Partnerwerks may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Partnerwerks and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Partnerwerks takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online – for example on message boards, web logs, through email, or in chat areas – that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides us. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.

Cookies
A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Partnerwerks uses cookies to help Partnerwerks identify and track visitors, their usage of Partnerwerks website, and their website access preferences. Partnerwerks visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Partnerwerks’ websites, with the drawback that certain features of Partnerwerks’ websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers
If Partnerwerks, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Partnerwerks goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Partnerwerks may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads
Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Partnerwerks and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers. When you access another website or purchase third-party products or services through the Site, use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting or the provider of such products or services.

  • Our Sites are not directed to children under the age of thirteen and we do NOT knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen as part of the Sites.

If we change our practices in the future, we will obtain prior, verifiable parental consent before collecting any personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen as part of the Sites.
