Collection and use of information.
We collect various personal information regarding you, including the following:
Information you provide for weekly newsletters, specifically e-mail address, and first name. If you sign up for paid services, we receive a portion of your payment information from our payment processor (such as name, the country of issuance and (e-mail) address) and for tax purposes. We may collect and store personal or other information that you voluntarily supply to us online while using the Site (e.g., while on the Site or in responding via email to a feature provided on the Site). The Site contacts individuals who specifically request that we do so or in the event that they have signed up to receive our free newsletters or have purchased one of our products. The Site collects personally identifying information from our users during online registration and online purchasing. Generally, this information includes name and e-mail address for registration to receive our free newsletters and name, postal address, and Paypal information when purchasing our products. All of this information is provided to us by you. Your information is stored at the list server that delivers debbyixchel.com newsletters. Your information can only be accessed by those who help manage those lists in order to deliver e-mail to those who would like to receive debbyixchel.com newsletters.
Your marketing preferences. We also collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate online through the Site. We also may use a standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie” to enhance your experience with the Site. Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. By Showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies help us deliver advertisements, identify how many unique users visit us, and track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the Site where you may have entered preference information before. The Site also may use web beacons (single-pixel graphic files also known as “transparent GIFs“) to access cookies and to count users who visit the Site or open HTML-formatted email messages.
The emails and other communications that you send us or otherwise contribute, such as customer support inquiries or posts to our customer message boards or forums. Please be aware that information on public parts of our Sites is available to others.
Information you share with us in connection with surveys, contests or promotions.
Information we get from our partners to support our marketing initiatives, improve our Services and better monitor, manage and measure our ad campaigns, such as details about when our partner shows you one of our ads on or via its advertising platform.
Be aware that we may occasionally release information about our visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law or to protect the rights, property or safety of users of the Site or the public.
We obtain personal information from various sources. We do this in three main ways:
- You provide some of it directly (such as by registering for the newsletter). When you use our Services, we collect information from you in a number of ways. For instance, we ask you to provide your name and email address, your phone number, to register and manage your account. We also maintain your marketing preferences and the emails and other communications that you send us or otherwise contribute, such as customer support inquiries. You might also provide us with information in other ways, including by responding to surveys, submitting a form or participating in contests or similar promotions. Sometimes we require you to provide us with information for contractual or legal reasons. For example, we may ask you to select your jurisdiction when you sign up for paid Services to determine if, and how much, tax we need to collect from you. We’ll normally let you know when information is required, and the consequences of failing to provide it. If you do not provide personal information when requested, you may not be able to use our Services if that information is necessary to provide you with the service or if we are legally required to collect it.
- We record some of it automatically when you use our Services (including with technologies like cookies). When you use our Services, we collect information about your activity on and interaction with the Services, such as your IP address(es), your device and browser type, the web page you visited before coming to our sites, what pages on our sites you visit and for how long and identifiers associated with your devices. Some of this information is collected automatically using cookies and similar technologies when you use our Services. We let our Users control what cookies and similar technologies are used through their sites (except those we need to use to provide the Services properly, such as for performance or security related reasons). Some of this information is similarly collected automatically through your browser or from your device. When you sign up for our paid Services, we collect your information (such as course materials, video and audio recordings of courses, calls, live events, and materials submitted by Client in the context of the courses and programs, as well as storing these on our membership site) for future lecture, teaching, and marketing materials.

Communicate with you, including by sending you emails about your transactions and service-related announcements.

For example, we may send different marketing communications to you based on your preferences or what we think may interest you based on other information we hold about you.
Analyze your interactions with our Services and third parties’ online Services so we can tailor our advertising to what we think will interest you. For example, we may decide not to advertise our Services to you on a social media site if you already signed up for paid Services or we may choose to serve you a particular advertisement based on your subscription to our email list or what we think may interest you based on other information we hold about you.
Analyze and learn about how the Services are accessed and used, evaluate and improve our Services (including by developing new products and Services and managing our communications) and monitor and measure the effectiveness of our advertising. We usually do this based on anonymous, pseudonymized or aggregated information which does not focus on you individually.
