Our company website is hosted on the Wix.com platform (“Wix”). Wix provides us with the platform and tools that allow us to offer our products and services to you and/or to our partnering providers who offer our products and services to you. The Wix online platform also allows us to monitor our company results and progress. Our website allows for information to be collected from our users via forms and emails. Participation in these forms and emails is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose your information.

 

Information and data may also be collected via cookies and tracking tools used to monitor user activity and user experience on the site. Cookies are small, unique identifiers our website asks your browser to store on your device. Cookies enable our site to recognize your device, actions and preferences over time.

What information do we collect and use, and why?

 

Waiver and Consent Agreement Form

Our online Waiver and Consent Agreement Form (https://www.discoverhowtothrive.com/consent) is provided to alert individuals to the terms and conditions required to participate in the THRIVE Program and to verify the understanding and agreement of those who elect to participate in the Program to assume all risk and responsibility for their participation. We collect the participant’s name, date of birth, email address, phone number, program provider, and program start date. If the Participant is a minor under the age of 18 years old, we also collect the minor’s guardian’s name, email address, and phone number in addition to the information previously listed. We collect contact information to be able to contact potential and existing program participants if needed to verify their eligibility to participate, answer questions, or address any arising needs or concerns. Unless you ask us not to, we may also use this information to contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this Privacy Policy. We collect date of birth to verify eligibility to consent and participate. We collect Program provider and Program start date to share with the third-party provider the list of individuals enrolled in their Program offering who agreed to these terms and conditions and who are therefore authorized to participate in the Program. For this purpose, we provide the provider with all of the information the individual submitted on this form. The information collected is stored in a secure, password-protected Wix database. You may not request to have this information deleted from our database after it is submitted to us because they are indicative of a legal binding agreement between you and THRIVE Institute LLC confirming your consent to participate in a THRIVE Program.

 

Feedback Form

Our online Feedback Form (https://www.discoverhowtothrive.com/feedback) allows us to collect information from THRIVE Program Participants about their experience and any input, suggestions, or reactions they have regarding their participation. This information is collected to enhance our products and services, to improve customer support, for marketing and promotional purposes, and to report results to third parties. Only anonymous, deidentified information submitted in this form will be shared with third parties. Users have the option to provide their first name and/or last name in this Feedback Form, which makes their data identifiable. Users are not required to provide their name. If you do not wish to have your feedback linked to your name, do not complete the name fields. We give users the option to provide their name to allow us to contact the participant for reasons including but not limited to answering questions or responding to an unsatisfactory experience. Information submitted into this Feedback Form is stored in a secure, password-protected Wix database. You may request for this information to be deleted from our database at any time.

 

Online Store

Within our online Store (https://www.discoverhowtothrive.com/store), we request information from our customers in our order form to complete successful transactions. To buy from us, you must provide your contact information (name, company name or institution name, email address, mailing address, and phone number) and financial information (credit or debit card number, expiration date, and security code). This information is collected for billing purposes, to fulfill your order, to contact you regarding any questions or issues, and to verify your agreement to the terms and conditions binding you to the License Agreement required to use our products. Transactions are managed by Stripe, Inc., a software platform that handles billions of dollars in financial transactions every year across the world.

 

Within our online Store, we may also give our users the opportunity to provide comments, feedback, reviews, and recommendations pertaining to our products and services to improve our customer service and customer experience.

Cookies and Tracking Tools

Wix uses cookies on its platform and its websites like ours to monitor user activity and user experience. By using or accessing our website, you are consenting to our use of cookies. Cookies are small pieces of text-only data that a website transfers to an individual’s hard drive or other website browsing equipment, usually used to track a user’s movement and actions on a site. Wix places the following two types cookies on its websites, including our website, to monitor and improve the online experience, for analytics and marketing purposes, and for other purposes described below.

 

  • Session (Transient) cookies: These cookies are erased when you close your browser and do not collect information from your computer. They typically store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user.

    • hs: Security

  • Persistent (Permanent or Stored) cookies: These cookies are stored on your hard drive until they expire (i.e., they are based on a set expiration date) or until you delete them. These cookies are used to collect identifying information about the user, such as Web surfing behavior or user preference for a specific site. This website may use the following persistent cookies for the purposes indicated:

    • svSession: Identifies unique visitors and tracks a visitor’s sessions on a site

    • smSession: Identifies logged in site members (for two weeks)

    • TSxxxxxxxx (where x is replaced with a random series of numbers and letters): Security

    • TSxxxxxxxx_d (where x is replaced with a random series of numbers and letter): Security

 

A third-party application, Google Analytics, offered through the Wix platform, will also track user site information. Google Analytics also stores cookies on your device to keep track of usage data. We may use software tools provided by Google Analytics to measure and collect user activity on our site, including but not limited to the number of visitors and page views, page response times, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information, where visitors come from, how long they stay, what keywords they are using to find our site, methods used to browse away from the page, and more. For your privacy, we have opted for IP Anonymization, which means that Google will never save your complete IP address. Google Analytics collects data to maintain and protect the Google Analytics service, to perform system critical operations, and in rare exceptions for legal reasons as described in their privacy policy (https://policies.google.com/privacy). Data collected, processed, and stored using Google Analytics is secure and kept confidential. For more information, please visit the “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps” webpage located at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.

 

Users who don’t want their data collected with Google Analytics can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. This add-on instructs the Google Analytics JavaScript (gtag.js, ga.js, analyrics.js, and dc.js) running on websites to prohibit sending information to Google Analytics. To opt-out of Analytics for the web, visit the Google Analytics opt-out page (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout) and install the add-on for your browser. For more details on installing and uninstalling the add-on, please see the relevant help resources for your specific browser. Updates to your browser or operating system may affect the functionality of the opt-out add-on. Check directly with the manufacturer of your browser to determine whether add-ons will function properly on the browser version that you are using.

How do we protect your information?

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.

 

Data and information you provide on our site may be stored through Wix’s data storage, databases, and the general Wix’s applications. Wix stores your data on secure servers behind a firewall.

 

All direct payment gateways offered by Wix and used by our company adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

 

Wix does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond those shared in this policy.

 

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.

 

We will not sell or rent your personal, identifiable information with or to any third party outside of our organization, other than for purposes including but not limited to fulfilling your request, security or ensuring the safety or well-being of any person.

 

How do we share information with third parties? 
We partner with third parties to provide specific services, such as our partnerships with institutions and organizations who offer the THRIVE Program. We may provide these third parties with the identifying information they need to provide these services. For example, an institution may request from the Company a list of the names of participants who completed our online Waiver and Consent Agreement Form to verify the individuals who are permitted to participate in the THRIVE Program offered. These third parties are contractually bound to protect any shared personally identifiable information and are not allowed to use the shared personally identifiable information for any purposes other than providing these services.

 

For purposes including but not limited to reporting and promoting our company results and progress, we also share information and data collected on our website and within our email account with third parties such as our existing clients, potential clients, and potential advertisers or investors. We will only share with third parties anonymous data and deidentified information that cannot be linked to identify any individual person. We report data in such a manner that no one can identify individual participants or recognize their information. For example, we will share deidentified, anonymous comments and aggregated participant demographics that THRIVE Program participants submit in our online Feedback Form and Waiver and Consent Agreement Form.

What control and access do you have over your information? 
You may do any of the following actions at any time by submitting a written request to us via email to info@discoverhowtothrive.com or by calling us at 484-577-1200.

  • You may request what identifiable data we have received from you.

  • You may request for your Feedback Form data to be deleted from our database if identifiable.

  • You may request to change/correct any contact information we have about you.

  • You may express any feedback or concerns about our products, services, or use of your data.

  • You may opt out of any future contact from us.

 

You may not request for your participation agreement data responses to be deleted from our Waiver and Consent Agreement Form database as this data is indicative of a legal binding agreement between you and THRIVE Institute LLC confirming your consent to participate in the THRIVE Program.

 

You also may not request for your online purchase transaction history data to be removed from our database as this is necessary information for company reporting and bookkeeping purposes and may be indicative of a legally binding agreement between you and THRIVE Institute LLC confirming your agreement to assume our licensing terms and conditions.

 

How do we communicate with our site visitors?

We may contact you to notify you regarding your site activity, to answer inquiries you submit to us, to troubleshoot problems with your transactions or submissions, to collect fees or monies owed, to poll your opinions through surveys or questionnaires, to send updates about our company and offerings, to resolve disputes, or as otherwise necessary to contact you to enforce our License Agreement, Waiver and Consent Agreement, applicable laws, and any other agreement we may have with you or a third party providing services to you. For these purposes, we may contact you via email, telephone, text messages, and postal mail.
