We will store your personal data for no longer than is necessary for the purpose for which such personal data is processed. Please note, however, that we may retain and use your personal data as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements and rights, or if it is not technically and reasonably feasible to remove such information from our databases, which means that we may retain and use your personal data as necessary after you stop using our Websites and Services. Subject to the foregoing, we will endeavor to delete your personal data promptly upon your request.

Under certain circumstances, Sacred Activations may be required to disclose your Personal Information if required to do so by law or in response to valid requests by public authorities (e.g. a court or a government agency).

To comply with a legal obligation
To protect and defend the rights or property of Tamra Oviatt
To prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Websites and Services
To protect the personal safety of users of the Websites and Services
To protect against legal liability
Third Party Service Providers
We may disclose your personal data to third-party service providers who perform services on our behalf including third parties that process payments; send marketing communications on our behalf; help us create or maintain our databases or help us research or analyze use of our Websites.
We may share with the general public via any of our platforms, including but not limited to our websites, social media, and emails, any information that you post as a user of our Websites and Services, such as information in an online review, live webinar, comment, forum, or blog posting. This may include information that identifies you (by username or otherwise).
SECTION 5 – TRANSFER OF DATA
Your information, including Personal Data, may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ from those of your jurisdiction.
Your data is stored through isolated data storage, databases, and the general WordPress application. We store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
SECTION 6 – POLICIES OF LINKED WEBSITES AND THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then our payment processors, Paypal or Authorize.net, store your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as it’s necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is completed, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
SECTION 7 – DATA SECURITY
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and we have implemented technical and procedural measures to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with AES-256 encryption.
Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the Information that you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from us over the Internet.
Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally-accepted data security standards.
You also play a role in protecting your personal information. Please do not share your user name or password with others.
SECTION 8 – AGE OF CONSENT
By using this site, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your state or province of residence and you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use this site.
We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or a guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Information from children without verification of parietal consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.
SECTION 9 — ADDITIONAL DISCLOSURES FOR USERS BASED IN THE EUROPEAN UNION
We are headquartered in the United States. By using our Websites and Services from outside the United States, you acknowledge that your personal data may be accessed by us or transferred to us in the United States and to our affiliates, partners, and service providers who are located around the world; and that your personal data will be transferred to, and stored and processed in, the United States or elsewhere in the world where our servers are located.
