Effective from September 2019
Welcome to ZenPowerNow.com (The Site). Thank you for being here.
As a company operated by Zen principles, we value respect, kindness, fairness and transparency. We hope that your presence on this Site will also reflect a honest intention where we’re here to learn and support each other.
On this page we will be transparent with you concerning what personal data we collect and why we collect it. We invite you to read following terms and if you agree to use our website, you’re also giving your consent to what we collect below.
If you are our Customers and have an account, the collected information is needed for administrative and tax purposes. We do not share your information to any other parties and we do not use it for any other purposes that are not related to the Site.
We use Google Analytics and Yoast SEO on the Site. The amount of data that we collect through them is only being used to understand the traffic on the Site and how we can improve user experience. After all, we need to improve our online presence so that we can spread our messages to more people.
Email service provider
We use SendInBlue as our email service provider. The company is located in Europe and they have a strict policy about personal data protection (GDPR). Your email address is therefore secured and won’t be used for any other purposes that don’t relate to the Site.
Concerning email statistics, we will be able to see who has opened ZenLetter or clicked on the embedded links. This kind of statistics is normal for email services, and we use it to learn more about the subjects that you’re interested in.
We will also use it to track subscribers who haven’t opened ZenLetter over a period. If it’s the case, we will remove them from subscriber list as it’s not a good idea for us to spend money sending emails to an invisible reader, we hope you understand :-).
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.
As a Site delivering educational content, we use different plugins from third parties to deliver our service and content to you. As a result, if you choose to enjoy our content from their platform (e.g. Vimeo), they may collect data about you by using cookies that we are not aware of and thereby should not be held responsible for.
When you leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form. We do not claim to own your comment, but we reserve the right to use your comment in an appropriate manner that relates to the Site. For example, if you post a question, we use that question in our videos or podcast to answer your question. We may also use your comment as testimonials if appropriated.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
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 members that register on our website, we also store the personal information you provide in your profile. You can see, edit, or delete your personal information at any time (except you cannot change your username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
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.
We wish to live in a world where it’s possible to trust each other. We will do our best to protect your data, but since we will not be able to prohibit people with malicious intention to visit our Site, we ask you to kindly be conscious about what you want to share on the site, especially when it comes to comments.
Thank you for your attention and we wish you lots of love, harmony and peace.
