PRIVACY AND DATA POLICY
MitchellDahood.com collects your information and can be contacted anytime at support@MitchellDahood.com. You can lodge any complaints with me via that same email, or request to be removed from my email lists, phone lists, or advertising targeting, too.
I am committed to protecting your privacy and security and have explained in detail the steps I take to do so. I control the Sites from my office in Lake Balboa, California. I do not represent that materials on the Sites are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Persons who choose to access this or other sites I control from other locations do so on their own initiative, and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent that local laws are applicable.
When you submit information to me or visit any of my Sites, I use it in an ongoing nature to ensure you receive the information or purchases you’ve made with me, to deliver relevant future content via our email newsletters, to track how much you use my Sites or services, and to make future offers through my company or any other company that is involved in delivering your purchases, bonuses, or content. By giving me your contact information at any time, you are granting me the right to contact you in the future in any manner necessary, at my discretion, for ongoing personal and professional development. You can unsubscribe from my email newsletters at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link found at the bottom of all of my emails.
If you want me to no longer contact you or store your information, just write me at firstname.lastname@example.org, anytime, with your request and we will begin removing you from our services or content, as appropriate, and as soon as we can.

How and Why We Collect Information
I collect your email address when you submit it, and some limited Site information and behavior, in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select or in order to contact you or advertise to you later. If you register for a Class, for example, the information you give me – your phone number, email, and address – is used to reserve your spot, to track your preferences, and to keep you informed about the Class and related personal development content, offers, and events until you unsubscribe or ask for your data to be removed. If you visit My Sites, I may use Facebook, Google or other tracking tools to understand your behavior on My Sites and to deliver advertising to you in the future.
As a visitor to My Sites, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information. In connection with other activities, such as utilizing registering for a class or participating in a sweepstakes, we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, we may ask that you provide us with personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including ZIP code), e-mail address, telephone number, credit card information, and any other personal information I feel is applicable. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity. In all cases, we will collect personal identification information, like your email or phone number, only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. We will also tell you how we use your information or if we share it with another party.
Except as otherwise provided in this policy, I will never sell any personal identification information about you as an individual user to any third party without having received your permission. If you supply us with your contact information you may receive periodic e-mails, mailings or calls from me with information on new products and services, important issues, or upcoming events.
If you wish to be removed from any postal, email, phone, or other lists, please let me know by emailing me at email@example.com. You can also write me at the contact information above. Please provide me with your exact name, email address, mailing address, and phone number. I will be sure your name is removed from the appropriate lists immediately.
When you use My Sites, I or our authorized technology services provider may also collect certain technical and routing information from you to facilitate your use of the Sites and its services, or to contact you, or advertise in the future. I use this information to administer the Sites and to understand and measure traffic patterns on the Sites. That way I know which areas of My Sites are favorites of My users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used, so that I may continually improve My Sites for mobile and future technical platforms. This information is collected mostly in aggregate form, without identifying you or any user individually. However, in some cases we use tools like cookies, web beacons, analytics services, and advertising providers to gather data about you or your computer location. I may use this statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing, advertising, or similar promotional purposes. This data is often tracked by us our our technology services provider by using “cookies” or “pixels” during your visit. A cookie is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card and enables us to record your passwords, purchases, and preferences and to deliver targeted messages or advertising to you in the future. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. For some web pages that require an authorization, cookies are not optional. Users choosing not to accept cookies will probably not be able to access those pages.
I may also use Facebook “pixels” on My Sites so that I can understand your digital behavior and potentially later target you with related advertising. I may also use Google Analytics to understand how long you might spend on My Sites or how you interact with My Sites.
If you ever choose to opt-out of targeted advertising with Me, then please contact Me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can remove your email from any advertising I may use.
As always, you can unsubscribe from any of our emails at any time via the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email you received from me.
I do not store any information about you on my servers, other than that which you submit into one of My forms, and in any case I hold your sensitive information, like your credit card information, with software that keeps it encrypted. Any other information stored happens via cookies or pixels as described above, and as facilitated via third party tools (like Facebook and Google. Below are examples of how I may use any information to better communicate with you:
- Provide and administer the services, including to display customized content and facilitate communication with other users;
- Process your requests and orders for courses, products, specific services, information, or features;
- Communicate with you about your account by:
- Responding to your questions and concerns;
- Sending you administrative messages and information, including messages from instructors and teaching assistants, notifications about changes to our Service, and updates to our agreements;
- Sending you information and in-app messages about your progress in courses, rewards programs, new services, new features, promotions, newsletters, and other available courses (which you can opt out of at any time);

- Advertise the services on third-party websites and applications;
- As required or permitted by law; or

When you submit information to me, then, I use it in an ongoing nature to ensure you receive the information or purchases you’ve made with me, to deliver relevant future content via our newsletters, and to make future offers through my company or any other company that is involved in delivering your purchases.
As an example, if you purchase certain courses from me, you may receive a bonus coaching session which is delivered by Mitchell Dahood using a separate system that runs that particular program. To deliver that coaching, I share your information with that program's system so you can be contacted to schedule that coaching call(s) you received as part of your purchase. At any time, you can contact us not to have your information shared with such service providers, but you may lose access to certain purchase bonuses or items if you do not allow the delivering third-party to contact you.
As most of my programs are for ongoing educational purposes in the field of personal and professional development, you should assume I will continue to contact you in perpetuity via email or via social media in order to deliver our services, serve you related content, make recommendations, learn about your preferences, grant you products, deliver programs to you with or from other platforms or companies, advertise to you or look alike audiences, send you surveys, and other fulfillment or marketing purposes.
By using My Sites and submitting any information with me, you agree to these terms without exception and agree to waive liability and not hold me liable for any use of your information, in perpetuity, under any circumstances, including waiving your right to participate or initiate any class action complaints.
Again, if you want me to no longer contact you, just write to me at email@example.com, anytime with your request, and I will begin removing you from our services or content, as appropriate, and as soon as I can.

Affiliate Links & Disclosures
If I use affiliate links, which are links to my partners or sponsors who pay me if you signup or purchase from them, then I will tell you on the page I am linking to them from. Any action you take on another company’s site is up to you and you are solely responsible for your actions and purchases with them. If I am paid by an affiliate, it does not cost you any extra – they are compensating mefor driving traffic to them. Often, I am able to get you discounts and trials to companies I like; and I only recommend companies I like.

I welcome your comments about any of the Sites. However, I will not review or consider any unsolicited creative submissions or suggestions for topics at my seminars, within my newsletters, or for my products. I hope you will understand that this policy is intended to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings in the event that ideas developed by me might seem to be similar to any ideas that were submitted to me.

If, despite my request, you send me any idea, suggestion or material (“Submission”), it shall become my property.

Given this fact, I ask that you refrain from submitting creative projects to me, particularly those that are confidential or personal to you.

You may not post on any forum, or send to any other forum user or my staff, any material that is abusive, vulgar, threatening, harassing, libelous, defamatory, obscene, invades a person’s privacy, violates any intellectual or other property rights, or that would otherwise violate any law.

My programs take a lot of work and discipline just like any worthwhile endeavor or professional continuing education program.

As stipulated by law, I cannot and do not make any guarantees about your ability to get results or earn any money with my ideas, information, tools or strategies.
