What’s with this Site?
Career Nomad is my biz and also the name of my Website. It’s just me, myself and I.
Your information is valuable and I want you to know that I’m doing everything I can to keep it safe, secure and private. That means no selling, renting or trading your info with other businesses or companies for marketing purposes. I like to know that my own data is safe, and I’d like the same for you, too!
Below, you’ll find the details about what I collect, why I collect it and how I keep your info safe. I’ll change it from time to time, but the bottom line is that I have every intention of keeping your data as secure as can be and treat it as valuable as if it were my own.
Data I collect and Why
There’s two basic types of data that I collect from you: 1) Information you explicitly provide – and – 2) Automated Data
**** 1. Information you explicitly provide ****
This is the data that you write down and send/submit to me, my Website or 3rd party applications that make your experience way better.
Here’s the breakdown of when this comes into play:
Have you signed up for my newsletter? It’s awesome. You might like it. When you sign up for my mailing list, I collect your name and email address to email you great content and notification of services you might find interesting.
I use a double opt-in approach, so before you get added to my mailing list, you’ll get an email asking you if you really, really want to be on my list. If you do nothing, then you won’t be added. You have the power, so there’s never any surprises.
Your name and comments are viewable to the public, but NOT your email address.
Sending me email through my contact form or directly via email? Any info you provide will go to me alone. I store the info indefinitely (until you tell me not to) so I can keep track of our continued conversation.
I use Acuity Scheduling to schedule appointments with you. The basic data I collect from you is your name, email address, and phone number or SkypeID. I use this info so I can contact you.
Depending on the type of appointment we have, I may ask you for more information to personalize the coaching experience. You’re free to add as much or as little as you want. All that info stays with me and with Acuity Scheduling. You can read about their policy here
I take notes during our sessions to keep track of our progress. Notes are kept on Evernote and Google Docs and are kept private so only I can see them. Evernote’s policy is here
*** 2. Automated Data ***
This is the information that gets collected as you browse websites. This includes your IP address, and the time and date when a site was accessed.
These cookies are NOT used to record information on your name, address or other contact details. Their function is for statistical purposes and to track traffic patterns.
That said, you have the option to disable cookies on your browser and still use my Website. Totally up to you.
When you visit my Website, I use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect your regular standard internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns. I do this so I can see how many visitors visit different parts of my Website and see what content visitors like to see.
This process does NOT identify anyone. I also don’t make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of anyone visiting my Website.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
All 3rd party applications that I use are listed above. I don’t share your data with any other 3rd party application.
How long do I keep your data?
For data that I have control over (name, email address, comments, emails, signed agreements, session notes, etc), I generally keep them indefinitely until you tell me to delete the info. All other data shared by 3rd parties will be kept for as long as the application is needed. For instance, if you choose to unsubscribe from my list, your information will be removed from MailChimp.
Access to your Personal Information
Your data is yours. You have a right to view, change, or delete any personal information that I have. If you want me to make any changes regarding your data, then reach out to me at [email protected]
Children & Privacy
The occasional grown-up curse word does tend to pop up now and then. So, children under 13 need to get permission from their parents and legal guardians to opt-in to the list and view this Website. That said, this Website is geared towards working 9-to-5ers, so hopefully, no children actually fall into that category and find any of the content relevant.
What if a data breach happens?
I’m keeping your data as safe as I possibly can. But in the crazy event of a data breach, I will notify you if your data has been compromised and will let you know what you need to do to protect yourself.
