When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Impact Training & Development Services uses features of Google Analytics to better understand our users and do not, at this time, use any targeted advertising. Statistics such as IP Address, pages visited, demographics, location and other basic user information is reported for us to better make informed decisions about how to make our site more relevant and easy to navigate for our users.
Google Analytics does not store any visitor specific data and Google offers an opt out installation that works with your browser if you do not want your data reported through Google Analytics: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/ and we encourage anyone using our site to opt out if they are so inclined.
Who we share your data with
We respect your privacy. We are in the business of coaching, consulting and training not in the business of renting, selling or sharing email. Therefore, we do not share or rent our e-mail or mailing list information with other companies or marketers. Please understand that we may disclose information when we are legally compelled to do so or to protect our rights as owner of the site.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
How we protect your data
We store personal information on secure servers that are managed by our web hosting service providers. Personal information that we store or transmit is protected by security and access controls, including username and password authentication, two-factor authentication, and data encryption where appropriate.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we have your consent to do so (e.g. if you have subscribed to one of our email lists or have indicated that you are interested in receiving offers or information from us), we send you marketing communications by email about products and services that we feel may be of interest to you. You can ‘opt-out’ of such communications if you would prefer not to receive them in the future by using the “unsubscribe” facility provided in the communication itself.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
How you can contact us
When we need to update this policy
We will need to change this policy from time to time in order to make sure it stays up to date with the latest legal requirements and any changes to our privacy management practices. When we do change the policy, we’ll make sure to notify you about such changes as required. A copy of the latest version of this policy will always be available on this page.
Concepts, strategies, ideas, etc., shared on our blog, in email communication, free or paid reports or any of our other general communication from Impact Training & Development Services are concepts, strategies, ideas, etc., that have worked for members of our team, clients, workshop participants and friends. They are NOT specific advice for your business. We only provide that after careful and complete analysis of your business.
If you have been able to take our general advice and use it in your life or business and experience success, we are happy for you and we’re delighted to have helped. But always use your own judgement, either independently or combined with specific advice from professionals, to find the right strategies for your business and your particular situation.
