Choices for personal information

The personal information that you supply on sign up with consciousdivas.com will not be used for a different purpose from that which it was collected.  Your consent will be sought should we wish to use the personal information for any other use other than that for which it was collected.

If we propose to use personal information for any purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy, we will offer you a way to opt out of the use of personal information for those other purposes.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some residentvisitor.com features and services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.

You can decline to submit personal information to consciousdivas.com, in which case you may not be able to use all of the features of the Site.

Information sharing

consciousdivas.com will only share personal information with other companies or individuals outside of consciousdivas.com in the following limited circumstances:

  • When we have your consent. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.
  • When we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of residentvisitor.com, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.

If consciousdivas.com becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of change of ownership, we will give notice before personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

We may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information, such as the number of users who looked at a particular recommendation. Such information does not identify you individually.

Please contact us through our feedback form or at the address below for any additional questions about the management or use of personal data.

Information security

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.

We restrict access to personal information to residentvisitor.com employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

Data integrity

consciousdivas.com processes personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Privacy Policy or any applicable service-specific privacy notice. We review our data collection, storage and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store and process the personal information needed to provide or improve our services. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.

Accessing and updating personal information

When you use consciousdivas.com , we make every effort to provide you with access to your personal information in order to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate amount of effort.
