Gluu Privacy Policy

Your personal information collected from payment forms or mailing list signup forms is never shared, sold, or rented to anyone, ever.

Your personal information is only shared between internal systems, like WordPress, PayPal, Stripe, and MailChimp—all of whom have security safeguards in place. All these services are required for us to keep our website up and running.

If you want to opt-out of any communication, click “Unsubscribe” located at the bottom of every single email from us. If you want your data to be deleted from our database, reply to any email, and we will take care of that. Keep in mind, if you do unsubscribe or get deleted from our database, you will not be able to sign up for any courses, attend our live events, use our software products, or receive our email content.

We do not use tracking pixels from the gluusociety.org mailing list, so no personal data is collected in any emails we send.

GDPR DETAILS

Your data is protected using industry standard tools and software. It’s never shared, sold, or given away, except to connect internal software accounts to other internally used software accounts (i.e., WordPress to MailChimp).

The data is stored as long as our website is live.

The data is stored in Canada and United States of America.

The type of data stored is name, email, IP, and personalization details you’ve filled in via forms on our website.

If there is a data breach, you will be notified within 72 hours—but only if you didn’t opt-out of receiving communications from us.
