Collection and disclosure of information:
We collect personal information from eligible individuals who create accounts at Ritualwell and/or affirmatively request to receive email or other services from us. We collect this information in order to provide these eligible individuals with timely information via email. It is our general policy not to make personal information available to anyone other than our employees, staff and agents.
Online submissions and personal information:
In addition to welcoming rituals and ritual components you wish to share, from time to time we may ask you to submit stories, video and other content related to specific Ritualwell programs. We treat such submissions as public information intended by you to be shared with the public, along with your first name and/or city and state.
Opting out and modifying information:

Browser information collected on the website:
We log IP addresses, which are the numerical locations of computers or networks on the Internet, and analyze them in order to improve our site. We also collect aggregate numbers of page hits in order to track the popularity of certain pages and improve our site. We do not gather, request, record, require, collect or track any Internet user's personal information through these processes.
You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you can accept all cookies, be notified when a cookie is set, or reject all cookies. (For more information on how to block or filter cookies, see http://www.cookiecentral.com/faq.) However, if you reject some or all cookies, your experience at our site and other sites throughout the World Wide Web may not be complete. Also, you would be unable to take advantage of personalized content delivery offered by other Internet sites or by us.
We may use pixel tags (also known as web beacons or clear GIF files) or other tracking technology to help us manage our online advertising and to analyze and measure the effectiveness of online advertising campaigns and the general usage patterns of visitors to our site. The information that is collected and shared using these pixel tags and similar technology is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address. Such technologies may also be used by third-party advertising service providers who serve or assist us in managing ads on our site, such as Facebook, Google and Bing. These files enable us or these third parties to recognize a unique cookie on your Web browser, which in turn enables us to learn which advertisements bring users to our website and to deliver advertising targeted to your interests. We are not responsible for, and do not control, any actions or policies of any third-party advertising technology service providers or of any third-party members of any related advertising networks.
Privacy of our email lists:
As noted above, we maintain email lists to keep interested, eligible individuals informed about important topics. We configure our list server software to refuse to divulge the email addresses of our list subscribers to anyone other than those whom we authorize. However, we are not the author of this software, and are not responsible for any failures in the software to preserve subscriber anonymity.
We maintain a variety of physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. For example, we use commercially reasonable tools and techniques to protect against unauthorized access to our systems. Also, we restrict access to personal information to those who need such access in the course of their duties for us.
Your own efforts to protect against unauthorized access play an important role in protecting the security of your personal information. You should be sure to sign off when you are finished using a shared computer, and you should always log out of any site where you have viewed personal information.
We may have links to other, outside websites that we do not control. We are not responsible for the content or privacy policies of those sites, and users should check the policies on those sites.
Changes to this policy:
We will revise or update this policy if our practices change, or as we develop better ways to keep you informed about them. You should refer back to this page for the latest information and the effective date of any changes. If we decide to change this policy, we will post a new policy on our site and change the date at the bottom. Changes to the policy shall not apply retroactively.
