PRIVACY POLICY

The Karma Seed LLC operates www.thekarmaseed.org. It is The Karma Seeds policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, The Karma Seed collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Karma Seed’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Karma Seed’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Karma Seed may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

The Karma Seed also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. The Karma Seed only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to The Karma Seed’s websites choose to interact with The Karma Seed in ways that require The Karma Seed to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Karma Seed gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who create an account to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with The Karma Seed – by purchasing a Karma Seed, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. Note, this information is not processed by out servers, for the payment processing occurs on PayPals's website. In each case, The Karma Seed collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Karma Seed. The Karma Seed does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

The Karma Seed may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. The Karma Seed may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Karma Seed does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

The Karma Seed discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on The Karma Seed’s behalf or to provide services available at The Karma Seed’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using The Karma Seed’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Karma Seed will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, The Karma Seed discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when The Karma Seed believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Karma Seed, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an The Karma Seed website and have supplied your email address, The Karma Seed may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with The Karma Seed and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. The Karma Seed takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Checkin Information

During the check in process users will be identified and displayed by their first name and last initial. We believe using only the last initial is satisfactory in regards to protecting your identity. Should you at any point find this level of anonymity unsatisfactory, we recommend you send us an email immediately, and we will do our best to remove your last name from any checkins or reproductions or reformations of that checkin as soon a possible.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. The Karma Seed uses cookies to help The Karma Seed identify and track visitors, their usage of The Karma Seed website, and their website access preferences. The Karma Seed visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using The Karma Seed’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of The Karma Seed’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
