Regarding Digital Downloads
You may have been redirected to this page after requesting or confirming a request for one of my free special report downloads. Thanks for your request. If you don’t receive it immediately by automated email attachment, please let me know so I can send it to you personally. Reminder -- all digital downloads available from this website are protected by intellectual copyright and may not be shared with others nor used for purposes other than your own personal development. In exchange you have provided me with your name and email, both of which are protected under the provisions outlined below.
Regarding Payment via PayPal
If you have used one or more of the PayPal buttons on this site, thanks for your purchase. Watch your email for a receipt generated by PayPal, and for follow up contact from me. Due to the fact that what is purchased is knowledge and expertise, once read or learned it cannot be unread or unlearned, refunds cannot be issued. Because your purchase is made on the independently owned platform, I do not have access to your credit card data and bank account. No financial information for you is collected by Deanne Carter Evolving Leaders coaching.
Having Trouble with your Purchase? Not sure about using PayPal?
If you’ve clicked on one of the PayPal buttons but need more information, or feel uncomfortable with providing your credit card info to PayPal, I’m happy to answer questions and help you complete your intention to gain the download or service you are interested in. Just send me an email and we’ll schedule a time to get on the phone and figure it out.
Although coaching is not mental health counseling, some similar information may be requested of you so that we can find the reasons your career is stuck, or what you need to enhance your skills and talents for high performance on the job. All private information is held as a sacred trust, and never shared with employers, spouses, or anyone else without your knowledge and permission.
As of 25 May 2018, the European Union has required all websites that might serve citizens of Europe to comply with their General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The regulation requires telling website visitors whether their visits are tracked, and if so what data may be gathered as a result, how it is used, and how it is stored. Although owners of websites based in the United States are not required to comply with the GDPR, our own version is likely to be enacted by Congress, and several states already require data use and privacy protection disclosures. Therefore, this section fulfills the spirit of these regulations and is worth reading, if only for adding to your knowledge about how the internet and websites work behind the scenes.
All personal and company-sensitive data gathered through the EvolvingLeaders.co website and third party online tools, including internet based assessments and emailed discussions, are protected by the strongest internet firewall /security software available for small businesses and accessible only on a password protected computer by EvolvingLeaders.co authorized staff. Data is collected for your coach’s use in helping you achieve your goals. Data is stored for up to a year after completion of your coaching program, then purged from our digital files. Minimal paper files containing mostly contact information may be kept in the EvolvingLeaders.co office in Tacoma, Washington, and those are also purged and shredded approximately 1 year after completion of the coaching program. Client has the right to request return and/or destruction of all stored information pertaining to their coaching program. These requests can be made on letterhead, co-signed by their supervisor where applicable, and emailed to Deanne@EvolvingLeaders.co.
Safe-Guarding Your Email Address
When you submit your email address in any of the opt in (contact, subscription, digital download) forms on this site, you are initiating a relationship with me in good faith, and I hold your requests for information and info products as a sacred trust. Your name /email address are gathered only for the purpose of providing you with helpful resources in the quest for self-development as an Evolving Leader.
Info provided via these opt in forms are stored in my website's server and account on Wix. Your messages are forwarded to me via G(google) Suite where the info is also kept in my gmail inbox for about 2 years or until you are no longer a client, then purged from my inbox. I will never rent or sell your email address to any third party.
It is possible that I may forward email to you from my joint venture partners when I deem that what they are offering is something you’d be interested in. Their offers will come from me, and your address will not be relinquished to them.
I ask only the type and extent of information on my opt-in forms that allows me to include you on the appropriate email list(s).
The Right to Remove Your Info from My Files
The GDPR says that you have the right to know what information I have on file about you, and the right to be forgotten. In data protection terms it just means that you have the right to be deleted from my online accounts and computer systems. So do ask for that if you wish. You always have the right to unsubscribe from any email newsletters I may send, and each email from me will have instruction on how to do that. Look for it at the bottom of the email.
About Browser / Analytic Cookies
This website's sitemap has been submitted to Google Search Console for site ranking purposes in Google's search engine. Google, like every other search engine and analytics program, uses computer code called cookies which can ascertain your general location, computer IP address, and type of device used (desktop / laptop / cell phone / tablet) for the purpose of tracking internet use by the general public. However, that information is not monitored by me, nor by this website's webhost, Wix. Your browser -- whether Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Mozilla FireFox, Microsoft Edge, etc -- may track your browsing history. Neither I, nor this website's host, Wix, have access to your browser history.
Cookies are both temporary and semi-permanent. The temporary ones disappear when you leave the website you're looking at. The semi-permanent ones can be removed by you by use of a cookie removal function provided by your browser or computer. A company such as GeekSquad can be of help with that. Cookies and computer temp files should be routinely purged as part of the good computer maintenance that clears your cache and download history, and keeps your system running well.
This website's webhost, Wix, does gather and aggregate minimal non-identifying information such as which pages and posts are visited the most, at what time of day on which days, on which social media any pages or posts are shared, and which countries visitors are coming from. We cannot see your IP address, or city.
You are encouraged to check this disclosure on subsequent visits to this website for further information in the unlikely event that changes to the analytics software have been made.
