This Privacy Statement should be read in conjunction with the Terms & Conditions

The preservation of privacy for all users of the Conscious Control site is of utmost importance to us. To enable us to offer a high quality online experience we need to gather certain types of information about users of the site. We feel that you should understand the terms and conditions surrounding the gathering of information that we collect from users of the site. We take privacy seriously and will work to address any problems or concerns users may have. This Privacy Policy Statement outlines what information we collect from the site, how that information is used, and how to correct or change it. In this policy “you” and “your” refers to the end user, while “we”, “us” and “our” are used to refer to Darren Spowart trading as “Conscious Control” and it’s Divisions.

Collecting Information
We use information that users provide about themselves as well as information that is collected from the Content Management System (CMS) and web-hosting software used to operate the site.

Information Collected
Like most online organisations, Conscious Control gathers and tracks information that users provide through registration and subsequent access to the site. Conscious Control collects and stores personal information as you have supplied to us including your name, postal address, email address, and country.

Information collected from the CMS and web-hosting software
The information gathered from the CMS assists in offering the most appropriate site functions for the user. The CMS automatically identifies users as they login and records their use of the site. Information collected includes the identity of the user; the date and time when a user logs in to the site; the places on the Conscious Control site a user visits while logged in; and the content a user participates in. This information is a critical part of offering online learning activities. We also collect aggregated anonymous information about site usage. Collecting aggregated information about overall patterns of site use allows us to modify and improve the site and services to best serve customer needs.

Information Storage
Information you provide to Conscious Control and information concerning your use of the site may be held at Conscious Control offices (or on third party secure servers) in London, Sydney and the United States. You have the right of access to, and correction of, your personal information held by Conscious Control. If you wish to know what information we hold about you, please e-mail us using the online contact form or postal addresses detailed under Contact Us.

IP Addresses
Whenever you use our web site, or any other web site, the computer on which the web pages are stored (the Web server) needs to know the network address of your computer so that it can send the requested web pages to your Internet browser. The unique network address of your computer is called its “IP address,” and is sent automatically each time you access any Internet site. From a computer’s IP address, it is possible to determine the general geographic location of that computer, but otherwise it is anonymous. We do not keep a record of the IP addresses from which users access our site except where you have specifically provided us with information about yourself, in which case we also record your IP address for security purposes. An example of this would be when proceeding to a checkout to finalise an order you may wish to make. After completing the form provided, your IP address will be stored along with a transaction number that allows us to track your order.

Use of Cookies on the Conscious Control website
A cookie is a small text file that resides on your computer and is accessed by the server that originally created the cookie. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies. However, if you do not wish to allow any cookies you may set your browser to disable cookies but you will not be able to take full advantage of many of the features available on the site. The use of cookies enhances your experience of what is offered on the website. We also use cookies to operate the registration system and you will need to activate cookies in order to register as a new user of the site. Cookies in and of themselves do not personally identify users, although they do identify a user’s browser. The cookies simply contain a unique identifier which helps us to know what our users find interesting and useful on our website. Cookies can assist us in determining how people use the site and which features and activities are effective, which helps us to improve the services offered on the site.

Disclosures we might make
We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law such as might occur in response to a court order or in response to a request by a law enforcement agency. With your permission, or at your request, we may disclose information we maintain to your accrediting agency for the purposes of providing a summary of your activities.

Promotional Mail
Unless you have otherwise indicated, we may, from time to time, email you information on selected products and services that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving this information by unsubscribing to our email newsletter by clicking on the unsubscribe link included in all email. WE DO NOT TOLERATE SPAM AND CONSCIOUS CONTROL WILL NEVER SELL, TRADE OR OTHERWISE MAKE AVAILABLE YOUR PERSONAL DETAILS TO THIRD PARTIES.

Future Changes
From time to time, all our terms, conditions and policies are reviewed and may be revised. Conscious Control reserves the right to change its Privacy Policy at any time and notify you by posting an updated version of the policy on our web-site.
