Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. grant access to content or host a live event. If we have trouble processing an order, we'll use this information to contact you.
We don't share your personal information with third parties. Only aggregated, anonymized data is periodically transmitted to external services to help us improve our website and service. We currently use Google Analytics (traffic analysis, SEO optimization) and MailChimp (mailing list management). Feel free to check out their own Privacy Policies to find out more.
We also use social buttons provided by services like Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook. Your use of these third party services is entirely optional. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices of these third party services, and you are responsible for reading and understanding those third party services’ privacy policies.
We generally gather two different types of information on our website: automatic and submitted.
What is automatic information?
When you interact with a website, it receives certain types of anonymous information. We use "cookies" to collect this data, which we then store and use to make improvements to the site and create a more relevant user experience. We also use the automatic information collected for analytics, site optimization and for tailoring our advertising and marketing. Some of the anonymous data we retrieve are your operating system version, browser version and IP address. More information about cookies is stated below.
What is submitted information?
The information you submit through our online forms, such as your name, telephone number, mailing address and email address, is retrieved and stored in order for www.lgbtqworkplace.com to provide you and our other visitors with relevant education products and services.
By voluntarily submitting information, you authorize www.lgbtqworkplace.com to contact you via phone, text, email or mail, in accordance with all pertinent laws. If you receive an email communication from us you may unsubscribe through the opt-out link in the email. At this time, you will be removed from further mailings.
Additionally, your submission gives us the right to release your personal information to abide by a subpoena, other legal procedure or other circumstances required by law. We will exercise this option in good faith when we believe we must do so to preserve our rights, protect your and others safety, look into instances of alleged fraud or to reply to a government or legal request. We might also release your personal information if www.lgbtqworkplace.com were to merge with, be acquired by or sell some or all of its assets to a third party.
What should I know about cookies?
The term cookies describes small pieces of data sent from websites to your browser. They're commonly used for technical reasons like web analytics. We use Google Analytics, a Google, Inc. tool, to perform our web analytics.
Advertising cookies enable advertisers to make ads more relevant to each individual visitor. Don't worry -- they don't contain any personally identifiable information, so you're still anonymous. Advertising cookies are also referred to as third-party cookies, and they track navigation and publish ads on a third party's behalf.
Web analytics to gather demographic and other anonymous data for the purpose of web optimization and other analysis.
"Lead auditing" to ensure accuracy, pertinent and validity of information submitted by users.
Tracking marketing and conversions, including, but not limited to, targeting and optimizing digital ad serving for improving relevance, user experience and advertising effectiveness.
Can I remove cookies?
You can remove cookies through your browser at any time. You may have to do this per use and not on a one-time basis.
You can generally opt-out of personalized advertisements from members of the Network Advertising Initiative or from those who follow the Digital Advertising Alliance's Self-Regulatory Principles, as well as some other ad networks and third-party advertisers. The NAI and DAA have opt-out pages on their websites where you can go to unsubscribe.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time, our site requests information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
Can these terms and policies ever change?
Yes, the LGBTQ+ Workplace Education Center is a work in progress, meaning that a lot will change in the near future. We reserve the right to update the Website and our policies from time to time, at our discretion. We will make sure to announce any major change in a prominent way.
