Goddess Gift :: Privacy Policy

Your privacy matters to us at Goddess Gift.  At goddessgift.com we are committed to maintaining your privacy.  You can count on us to always safeguard and protect your personal and financial information.

Goddess Gift is an online media community that offers you enjoyable, insightful, and meaningful information that can lead to your personal growth and development. Our goal is to give you information and easy access to services and products that are relevant to your life.  The nature of personality assessment is such that it is necessary for you to feel completely comfortable in disclosing personal information so that we can respond to you with the most accurate and helpful feedback that we can.  Our policies are designed to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy and to uphold the use of fair information practices.

  • Your privacy is our priority and is protected at Goddessgift.com.
  • Goddess Gift does not collect personally identifiable information from any of our visitors without their prior consent.
  • You can decide how much, and in what ways, you wish to participate in the goddessgift community, and can end that involvement at any time. We will always honor your decisions.  
  • We will never disclose your personal information to any third party unless you direct us to do so.
  • We will not sell your personal information to any third party.

Questions regarding privacy policy should be directed to sturnbull@goddessgift.com. To fully understand our practices when you visit our site, please read the privacy statement below.

The following statement explains Goddess Path's ("Goddess Gift," goddessgift.com") information collection and disclosure practices. Please be advised that  Goddess Path's website http://www.goddessgift.com (including successor pages, the "Site"), offers a personality assessment ("Goddess Quiz", "Goddess Report") that may not be used by children under the age of seventeen (17) and children under such age may not submit any personal information to Goddess Gift, except through their parents or legal guardians.

What type of information does Goddess Gift collect?
 Goddess Gift collects no information that may be used to identify you individually, such as your name and email address ("personal information") unless you provide it to sign up for a specific service such as our newsletter.  Those taking the goddess quiz must provide demographic information (age and sex only) that helps us to compare their quiz results with statistical norms so that they receive the most accurate report possible. We do not share this information in a personally identifiable format with any third party.  Occasionally we gather data in order to further validate our tests. Each visitor has the choice of submitting his/her information for validation purposes. Even in this instance, Goddess Gift never uses individual data (name, place of residence, etc.), but uses aggregated (collective) databases for purposes of test validation.  Otherwise, no records of scored tests and quizzes are kept.

We collect and store certain technical and other information about the online activities of our users on an aggregated (or collective) basis. Goddess Gift does not use this information to identify you or to match it with your testing activities. We may, however, track the number of people who view each page, and other site usage data, in order to learn which features are the most popular so we can improve our service. We also record statistical information collected on our site to better understand and serve our visitors. This information is recorded as anonymous group statistical information and is not connected to any personal information you have provided to Goddess Gift.

Depending on the specific Goddess Gift services and products for which a user registers, certain specific information will be requested. We use this additional data to personalize your Goddess Gift experience. By obtaining and using this information, We can provide you with timely, relevant, and individualized service according to your preferences and interests.

We use this information in five ways:

1. to send you our monthly newsletter, if you have signed up for it
2. to contact you if you have signed up for additional services requiring contact;
2.  to send promotions/ coupons via e-mail only with your consent,
4. to contact you for feedback and surveys via e-mail,
5. to respond to your queries to customer service at Goddess Gift; and
6. to send you thank you email and follow-up email.

If you sign up for certain Goddess Gift services such as the newsletter, we collect personal information, such as your name and email address. This information will not be linked to your testing information.  Goddess Gift may use URL tracking in the emails sent to you. When you open such email messages, our system may record the following data: the time you viewed the email and the URLs that you clicked on from that email. Goddess Gift will also record if your email program is capable of receiving HTML-encoded email. URL tracking may use cookies. Goddess Gift uses this information to assess or modify our content in these emails. Goddess Gift may use this information in an aggregated, statistical form to describe our audience and services on our site to third parties (i.e., anyone or any entity who is not an employee, agent, or subsidiary of Goddess Gift).

If you send an email to Goddess Gift or submit any information to our customer support staff, we will retain your email or other information for the time necessary to respond to you.

How does Goddess Gift use my personal information? 
Goddess Gift never discloses your personal information to any third party. Goddess Gift uses the personal information you voluntarily only to allow us to provide you with customized services. 

Goddess Gift may use aggregated, statistical information to describe our audience, services, and to develop partnerships with third parties (i.e., anyone or any entity who is not an employee, agent, or subsidiary of Goddess Gift). For example, if 20% of our members were interested in buying books about goddess paintings, we might share that statistic with a  provider of artworks in order to offer a link to their service to our members. We would not disclose any individual's personal data. Be assured, we do not disclose your personal information.

We hope to build a long-term relationship with you. To build that trust, we know that as you spend time on our site and with our email newsletters, your personal information must remain within your control. Therefore, unless you give us your express permission, except if we believe in good faith that the law requires it (e.g. if disclosure was necessary to respond to a subpoena, warrant, or court order, or to protect the rights of Goddess Gift or others)  we will not share your personal information with unauthorized third parties. We believe your personal information is precisely that--yours. And we will do our best to protect it!

How do I maintain control over my information?

How does Goddess Gift keep my information secure?
Every Goddess Gift employee understands that the privacy of our members is a top priority. Access to members' personal information is strictly limited to our Goddess Gift Team, a small number of professionals and customer relationship employees. A customer relationship employee will handle your personal information only to respond to your communication or to better understand our audience to help with our editorial direction. The professionals on our team handle personal information when they maintain our site and email newsletters. Rest assured that all members of our team are subject to stringent confidentiality requirements. Any information disseminated outside of the Goddess Gift team is anonymous and aggregated, never identifiable by individual.

Your Goddess Gift report  is not stored on our server, but delivered to you as a downloadable (or printable) report  so that you are the only member who has access to this information.  To ensure that you've logged out of your account, please remember to close your browser window when you have finished your visit. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence, especially if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place, such as a library or Internet cafe.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Goddess Gift cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort, including the use of firewalls, to ensure the security of your information on our systems.
