Your privacy on HeadStrong Performance’s site

The primary purpose of BHeadStrong Performance’s site, and accompanying apps, and downloadable content is, to be a dynamic resource and business tool to help you learn more about HeadStrong Performance. We want you to feel secure when visiting our site and are committed to maintaining your privacy when doing so. This policy (together with our Terms of Use and data privacy notices on the site) explains how any personal data we may collect from or about you through this site, will be processed and protected by HeadStrong Performance. By using our site, and other content, you are consenting to BHeadStrong Performance’s use of your data as described below. Any changes we may make to our privacy policy in the future will be posted on this page.

What Information Do We Gather?

HeadStrong Performance collects information at its sites (including FaceBook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, The App Store, Google Play, and Amazon) in two ways: (1) directly (for example, when you subscribe to our blog, join a discussion, register for a newsletter or register to comment on a forum site); and (2) indirectly (for example, through our site’s technology).

We may collect and process the following information:

  • Information that you provide by filling in forms on our site. This includes registering to use the site, subscribing to services such as our Body-Brain Blog, newsletters and alerts, registering for a conference or requesting a white paper or further information. Pages that collect this type of information may provide further information as to why your data is needed and how it will be used. It is completely up to you whether you want to provide it.
  • If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
  • We may ask you to complete surveys that we use for research purposes, although you do not have to respond to them.
  • Any postings, comments or other content that you upload or post to our HeadStrong Performance site or blog.
  • Details of your visits to our site and resources you access (including but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data). Please see the Cookies section below for more information.

When this information relates to or identifies you, we will treat it as “personal data”.

How do we use information that we collect from this site?

We use personal data to provide you with information you request, review the website traffic and potential markets, and for other purposes which we would describe to you at the point where it is collected or which will be obvious to you. For example:

  • To fulfill your requests for white papers, articles, newsletters or other content
  • For surveys or research questionnaires
  • To personalize your site experience
  • To contact you for marketing purposes where you have agreed to this.

We analyze your IP and browser information to determine what is most effective about our site, to help us identify ways to improve it and, eventually, to determine how we can tailor our site to make it more effective. Please see the Cookies section below for more information.

Will we share your personal data with outside parties?

We will not sell personal data to third parties. We generally only share personal data with our contracted service providers and advisors. However, there will be other times when we need to share or disclose personal data you provide for a specific purpose, for example:

  • In the case of an event where we are running a joint event and have informed you that the data will be shared with our partners. But again, we will notify you as to why we are asking for specific information and it is completely up to you whether you want to provide it;
  • We may need to disclose your personal data to third parties in the event that we sell or liquidate any part of our business or assets;
  • We will disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our Terms of Use; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of HeadStrong Performance, our clients, or others.

What about sensitive personal data?

We do not generally seek to collect sensitive personal data through this site. In the limited cases where we do seek to collect such data, we will do this in accordance with local data privacy law requirements. If you choose to provide us with unsolicited sensitive personal data, you consent to our using the data, subject to applicable law as described in this privacy policy. The term “sensitive personal data” refers to the various categories of personal data identified by European and other data privacy laws as requiring special treatment, including in some circumstances the need to obtain explicit consent. These categories may include personal identity numbers, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious, philosophical or other similar beliefs, membership of a trade union or profession or trade association, physical or mental health, biometric or genetic data, sexual life, or criminal record (including information about suspected criminal activities).

What about data security?

We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of personal data collected via HeadStrong Performance’s site. You should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that information and personal data may flow over networks connecting you to our systems without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the sites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these sites, please note that these sites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies or sites. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these sites.

Where will your personal data be processed?

Given our global orientation, personal data we collect may be transferred internationally throughout HeadStrong Performance’s organization. We have internal policies in place to ensure an equivalent level of protection is in place across our organization.

Cookies

What are cookies?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a site. Cookies are then sent back to the originating site on each subsequent visit, or to another site that recognizes that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a site to recognize a user’s device. You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu. For a video about cookies visit www.google.co.uk/goodtoknow/data-on-the-web/cookies.
Cookies do a lot of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience. They can also help to ensure that the advertisements you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

By using our site you agree that we can place cookies on your device as explained below. If you want to remove existing cookies from your device you can do this using your browser options. If you want to block future cookies being placed on your device you can change your browser settings to do this.

Third Party Widgets

We partner with ShareThis on the site. ShareThis is a widget on the site that enables users to share content from the site with others through social media sites such as Facebook, Linked-In and Twitter. ShareThis includes cookies on the site which collect information on how users use the site and associate users with topics of interest, based on the content they share. This data will be used for analytics on the site (creating statistics as to what is most popular and how many people are sharing particular content) and to determine how to target advertising on other external sites. ShareThis may share its analytical data with BBPCoaching. ShareThis does not use personal identifiers of users (such as names and e-mail addresses) for these purposes and identification is solely by an anonymous identifier. For further information about ShareThis, the cookies it uses and how to opt out of ShareThis cookies, please refer to their website [www.sharethis.com/privacy].
Apart from ShareThis, we also collect subscriptions to our blog posts using a widget called: Subscribe2. This widget only collects your e-mail address when you subscribe to our “Body-Brain Blog”.
At HeadStrong Performance we do not have third-party advertising on our site so we do not use these targeting cookies. Third party social media sites may log information about you, for example if you click an “Add This” or “Like” button for a social media site while on our site. We do not control such sites or their activities. You may be able to find information about social media sites on the sites themselves. We recommend you read the terms of use and privacy policy of such sites before using them.
That’s it in a largish nutshell. The short of it is—we are interested in maintaining your privacy and creating a valuable, robust site, with the best user experience possible.

f you have any questions now or during your visit, please contact us using our Contact Us form or send us an e-mail to: info@headstrongperformance.net.
This privacy policy is effective as of February 7th, 2013.
