TheThriveContent.com employs some basic tenets of privacy by design to protect data privacy for all users. We despise privacy violations like the gratuitous collection of data across the web. So, work very hard not to collect data we don’t need or to knowingly use third-party site enhancement tools that do.
However, EU users should please note that specific protections, policies or requirements for you under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are highlighted in the blue boxes below.
Links to External Websites
The website may contain links to third-party websites. If you follow these links, you may leave the website. However, Thrive Media, Inc. does not support any third-party websites and is not liable for the content or the privacy measures of these websites either.
Social Media Platform, Social Web Apps and Online Tools
If you engage in any interaction with Dahna Chandler for Thrive Content (“Thrive Content”), other users or any third party on any social media platform we manage or interactive services like chat, IM, project management or similar apps and tools, you should be aware that: (a) the personal information that you submit by and through those platforms, apps, and services, depending on how they work, can be read, collected or used by other users depending on the privacy settings of your accounts with those platforms, apps or tools, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages or otherwise to contact you without your consent or desire; and (b) where Thrive Content responds to any interaction on such social web platforms, apps or online tools, your account name or handle may be viewable by any and all users of Thrive Content’s social media accounts.
We are not responsible for the personal information that you choose to share on any social web platforms, apps or online tools associated with Thrive Content or where Thrive Content may engage or interact. These platforms, apps and online tools operate independently from Thrive Content, and we are not responsible for those platforms or their privacy or security practices. We encourage you to review their privacy policies and your privacy settings on all platforms, apps or tools where you engage or interact to help you understand their privacy practices. If you have questions about the security and privacy settings of any social web platforms, apps or tools you use, please refer to their applicable privacy notices or policies or contact them directly.
