E-mail or other forms of electronic communication, including website submission, are not secure and/or confidential means of communication.
Please note that any messages sent to directly to other users of the Website are only private insofar as the sender and receiver keep them private. We do not and cannot control when a user may decide to make the contents of a private message public.
- Excluded Information. This policy does not extend to information available in public records. This information includes, but is not limited to, information about professionals such as information obtained from law enforcement, licensing agencies, or courts.
- General Audience Website. We intend the Website for general audiences. In other words, this Website is not directed to children under the age of thirteen (13). Consequently, we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under thirteen. If you are aware that such a child has provided us with personal information without the appropriate parental consent, please contact us at infohumanityrisingcom (standard email format). If we become aware that a child under thirteen has opened an account and/or provided personal information to us, we will act to remove any and all personal information associated with that child and terminate the child’s account.
- Security. We strive to ensure that the Information (as defined below) you share with use is handled in a safe, secure and responsible manner. We have contracted with service providers who have security measures to help protect against loss, unauthorized access and alteration of the information in our control. We will only disclose such Information to employees and authorized service providers who require such information for the purposes described in this Policy. The databases of our service providers are protected by physical, technical, and procedural measures that restrict access to authorized persons in accordance with this Policy. Although no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed 100% secure, and we cannot ensure against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration, or destruction of data, we take reasonable precautions to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.

If you want to “opt in” or “opt out” of receiving Marketing Communications, specifically what type of Marketing Communication (e.g., e-mail or direct mail) you wish to receive or to stop receiving. This will ensure we identify you correctly in our systems and accurately process your request.
