We collect several types of information about visitors and/or users of our Services. We may collect this information either directly when you provide it to us or automatically as you navigate through the Websites or App.
(a) Personally Identifiable Information. 'Personally Identifiable Information' refers to information by which you may be personally identified, such as your name, email address, or school. We will collect and process such data about you when you register for a Service/create an account, subscribe to a newsletter, submit feedback, enter a contest, fill out a survey, or send us a communication. When ordering products or services on the Websites or App, you may also be asked to provide a credit card number and other payment-related information. You may also provide information to be published or displayed ("posted") on public areas of the Websites (such as blogs, forums, message boards, and the like), or transmitted to other users of the Websites using 'sharing' features (collectively, "User Contributions"). Your User Contributions are posted and transmitted to others at your own risk. We cannot control the actions of other users of the Websites with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions. As an example, if you wanted to share tips on how to properly raise and herd goats with another Thriver (Thrive15.com subscriber named Gary or Steve) we could not prevent Gary or Steve from spreading your best-practice goat-herding tips with the rest of the planet, the global community, the Thrive15.com community or the community in which you live. Depending upon the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
We may also collect your Internet Protocol ('IP') address. We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our servers, software, to administer our Services and to gather demographic information.
If you are a school and you use a Thrive15.com service within the United States for children under the age of 13, you are responsible for obtaining consent from the parents/legal guardians of each child you wish to allow to participate in using any of our Services. If the children at the school watch Thrive15.com and become highly motivated to the point that they wish to leave school to pursue entrepreneurial endeavors of their choice then we cannot be held responsible for this activity.
(b) Non-Personally Identifiable Information. We may collect, or our third party ad server and/or content server may collect, certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information, that does not by itself identify a specific individual. Such information tells us about your equipment, browsing actions, the resources that you access and use through the Services, your operating system and browser type. Our third party ad servers will also provide us with super summarized summary, but not individual, reports that will tell us how many ads were presented and clicked upon at our Websites, this is exciting stuff. The information that we collect automatically is largely 'statistical' in nature. This information helps to bind the universe together and helps us to deliver a better and more personalized service to users, by enabling us to estimated usage patterns while customizing our Services according to your individual preferences. This information also allows us to speed up your searches which will make a better website for you which will increase the likelihood that you will love Thrive15.com. Research has also indicated that humans that love a product or service tend to keep paying for the service which would in turn allow us to provide an even better service as a percentage of the revenues would then be reinvested back into the company to improve the overall service. As the product or service improves more and more (Thrivers) subscribers are likely to visit the website on a consistent basis. Soon Thrive15.com will begin to pay more and more taxes as the revenues we earn go up and up. As we begin to pay more taxes the founder of Thrive15.com, Clay Clark will begin to feel more patriotic. Help the founder feel more patriotic, please allow yourself to share the information listed above.
(c) Device Information. When you download our App and use our Services, we automatically collect information on the type of device you use and the operating system version, so we know the best application version to provide you with. We do not ask you for, access or track any location based information from your mobile device at any time while downloading or using our App or Services, however we are pretty sure that various massive social media websites do.
