Privacy Policy

Effective date: May 21, 2018

A Throne of Souls ("us", "we", or "our") operates the www.athroneofsouls.com website (the "Service").

This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data when you use our Service and the choices you have associated with that data.

We use your data to provide and improve the Service. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions, accessible from www.athroneofsouls.com

Definitions

  •  

Service is the www.athroneofsouls.com website operated by A Throne of Souls

Personal Data

Personal Data means data about a living individual who can be identified from those data (or from those and other information either in our possession or likely to come into our possession).

Usage Data

Usage Data is data collected automatically either generated by the use of the Service or from the Service infrastructure itself (for example, the duration of a page visit).

  •  

Cookies are small pieces of data stored on your device (computer or mobile device).

Data Controller (A Throne of Souls)

Data Controller means the natural or legal person who (either alone or jointly or in common with other persons) determines the purposes for which and the manner in which any personal information are, or are to be, processed.

For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, we are a Data Controller of your Personal Data.

Data Processors (or Service Providers) - (This could be any of the following, Google Analytics, Google AdWords, and/or Wix (the hosting platform))

Data Processor (or Service Provider) means any natural or legal person who processes the data on behalf of the Data Controller.

We may use the services of various Service Providers in order to process your data more effectively.

Data Subject (or User)

Data Subject is any living individual who is using our Service and is the subject of Personal Data.

Information Collection and Usage

We collect several different types of information for various purposes to provide and improve our Service to you.  However, it is vital to distinguish what information is captured by A Throne of Souls directly and the data collected by Google AdWords/Analytics and/or the Wix hosting platform.  A Throne of Souls has no visibility into the data collected, disseminated, sold, or otherwise exchanged by Google AdWords/Analytics.  The only information that might be directly collected by A Throne of Souls is your email address and your name and only if you chose the 'contact us' feature.  That information that is directly collected by A Throne of Souls will not be sold, transferred, or otherwise disseminated in any way.  As you read further into this privacy policy, you will read about other information/data that might be sold, transferred, or otherwise disseminated--this is solely in reference to information/data collected by Google AdWords and/or Google Analytics.  It is explicitly, not referring to personal data you provide directly and explicitly to A Throne of Souls through the 'contact us' feature.  An example of the difference of data collected might be demographic data.  Google Analytics does collect demographic data for analysis of website traffic, but it is not something that A Throne of Souls would ever sell, trade, or otherwise disseminate.  However, Google might.  Again, we (A Throne of Souls) have no visibility into what Google may or may not do with said personal data example. 

 

Other information (such as general location of the end user) may be collected used by the Wix.com hosting platform to inform or notify A Throne of Souls.  An example of this type of information gathered might be a notification sent to A Throne of Souls that a visitor from (city and state in the US or city and country elsewhere) is currently on www.athroneofsouls.com.  This notification sent to A Throne of Souls never goes down to a specific unit, address, or neighborhood.  If I, the author, look at my website, I'll see a notification that someone from Roanoke, TX is on www.athroneofsouls.com right now.  That is how this type of data collected and used.  This generic gelocation example is not personally identifiable (PII) data, but I wanted to ensure you understood all the types of data that is collected and why.  In this example, the notifications provide insight into the effectiveness of Google AdWords campaigns and the other marketing campaigns in service to illustrate what is working and what is not.

Types of Data Collected

Personal Data

While using our Service, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you ("Personal Data"). Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to (again, this depends on data explicitly given to A Throne of Souls through the 'contact us' feature versus data collected by Google Analytics and/or Google AdWords):

  • Email address

  • Cookies and Usage Data

 

In the example of the end user using the 'contact us' feature, which sends whatever name and email address they chose to use in the 'contact us' fields, that data/information is NOT held.  Meaning, I (the author) do NOT keep that information in a spreadsheet or database.  I would only use it to reply to the end user and establish a dialogue with said individual at their explicit request since they contacted me first and that's the point of the website (to be seen, known, defined, and reachable).  I (the author) have no visibility into what either the Wix.com platform or Google AdWords/Analytics may or may not do with said data in this example.

Usage Data

Google Analytics/AdWords and/or the Wix (the hosting platform) may also collect information on how the Service is accessed and used ("Usage Data"). This Usage Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol address (e.g. IP address), browser type, browser version, the pages of our Service that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data.

Tracking Cookies Data

We use cookies and similar tracking technologies to track the activity on our Service and hold certain information.

Cookies are files with small amount of data which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your device. Tracking technologies also used are beacons, tags, and scripts to collect and track information and to improve and analyze our Service.

You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Service.

Examples of Cookies we use:

  • Session Cookies. We use Session Cookies to operate our Service.

  • Preference Cookies. We use Preference Cookies to remember your preferences and various settings.

  • Security Cookies. We use Security Cookies for security purposes.

Use of Data

A Throne of Souls uses the collected data for various purposes:

  • To provide and maintain our Service

  • To notify you about changes to our Service

  • To allow you to participate in interactive features of our Service when you choose to do so (such as the contact us feature)

  • To provide customer support

  • To gather analysis or valuable information so that we can improve our Service

  • To monitor the usage of our Service

  • To detect, prevent and address technical issues

Legal Basis for Processing Personal Data Under General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

If you are from the European Economic Area (EEA), A Throne of Souls legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described in this Privacy Policy depends on the Personal Data we collect and the specific context in which we collect it.

A Throne of Souls may process your Personal Data because:

  • You have given us permission to do so

  • The processing is in our legitimate interests and it's not overridden by your rights

  • To comply with the law

Retention of Data

A Throne of Souls will retain your Personal Data only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your Personal Data to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your data to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies.

 

A Throne of Souls will also retain Usage Data for internal analysis purposes. Usage Data is generally retained for a shorter period of time, except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of our Service, or we are legally obligated to retain this data for longer time periods.

 

As of June 10th, 2018, I have purged all contact data from the Contacts & CRM section of the www.athroneofsouls.com Dashboard of the Wix.com platform.  This held First and Last Name of users who contacted me through either the Contact URL or the Chat feature/service of this website.  I will occasionally purge it from time to time going forward so as not to keep unnecessary PII data.  Every effort will be made to purge this on a monthly basis.

Transfer Of Data

Your information, including Personal Data, may be transferred (by Data Processors, not A Throne of Souls) to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.

If you are located outside United States and choose to provide information to us, please note that we transfer the data, including Personal Data, to United States and process it there.

Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

A Throne of Souls will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and no transfer of your Personal Data will take place to an organization or a country unless there are adequate controls in place including the security of your data and other personal information.

Disclosure Of Data

Legal Requirements

A Throne of Souls may disclose your Personal Data in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:

  • To comply with a legal obligation

  • To protect and defend the rights or property of A Throne of Souls

  • To prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Service

  • To protect the personal safety of users of the Service or the public

  • To protect against legal liability

Security Of Data

The security of your data is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Service Providers

We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service ("Service Providers"), to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.

These third parties have access to your Personal Data only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

We may use third-party Service Providers to monitor and analyze the use of our Service.

 

Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service.
