Privacy Policy

EFFECTIVE DATE: April 8, 2024

The website (“Site”) and all the information and materials you encounter on it (collectively referred to as “Content”), are owned, operated, and controlled by Lynnette Brown of Conscious Strategies (“Company,” “we,” “our,” or “us”).  This Content includes text, pictures, videos, audio files, emails we send you, forms, documents, templates, and similar items.  We are committed to respecting the privacy rights of our customers, clients, visitors, and other users of the Site.  This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) constitutes an agreement between the Company and you, as the user of the Site (“you” or “your”).  The terms “you” or “your” encompass anyone using, visiting, or viewing our Site.


This Policy outlines its effective date, the information we may collect from you and how, how we might use and disclose that information, your rights concerning that data, procedures for reviewing or changing your provided personal information, how we may change this Policy, and our measures to secure your information — while complying with applicable data protection laws, including the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), California Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”), CAN-Spam Act, and Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”).  Furthermore, we adhere to the principle of data minimization.  Accordingly, we only collect, use, and disclose your information as necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy, and we will not collect or retain your information for any longer than is required for these purposes.

This Policy only applies to our Site, email communications, and any offline location where we display it.  Furthermore, our Site may contain links to third-party websites and include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, text, etc.) that behaves similarly to how it would be if you visited the third-party website.  This Policy does not apply to third-party websites.  Links to third-party websites and embedded content are not part of our service and are beyond our control.  This includes links from our partners that may use Company’s logos as part of a co-branding agreement.  If you choose to visit third-party websites or use embedded content, we are neither responsible nor liable for their privacy practices, activities, or content, and it is your responsibility to review their privacy policies to confirm you understand and agree with it.  Your visits and access to third-party websites is at your own risk.  Please note that third-party websites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information.  Additionally, this Policy doesn’t address aspects inherent to the Internet that are beyond our control, nor does it override applicable laws or governmental regulations.

By continuing to access or use our Site, you indicate your acceptance of this Policy.  If you disagree with any part of this Policy, please refrain from using our Site and exit immediately.



We collect information from you in primarily one of two ways: information you voluntarily share with us (“personal information”), and information automatically gathered through technology (“general information”) (collectively “information”).

  1. Personal Information You Voluntarily Provide: We may ask you for certain information referred to on this Site as “personal information.” This information pertains to your identity and may include, but is not limited to, your name, address, email address, phone number, date of birth, age, gender, billing and financial information, and other details that can be linked to you.  All activities in which you may engage on this Site are voluntary, except those that are automatically collected through technology, as provided below.  You are not required to provide any personal information to us unless you choose to access features on the Site that require such information.  If you choose to provide your personal information, we promise to use it only for the purposes for which it was provided, and we won’t use it for any other unrelated purposes without your consent. Examples of how you might provide us with your personal information include, but is not limited to:
    • Opting In to Receive Resources, Information, or Downloads: You may provide your contact information to receive such materials as whitepapers, eBooks, or other downloadable content.

  1. General Information Automatically Gathered Through Technology: There may be instances in which we automatically collect information from you that is more general and technical in nature (“general information”).  When you visit our Site, we may automatically gather information about your device and browsing activities.  This information, which is not personally identifiable, may include, but is not limited to:
  • Device Information
    1. IP Address: An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a unique number assigned to each device connected to the Internet. It acts like a mailing address for your device on the Internet, allowing information to be sent and received. We use your IP address to understand your location data, such as what region you are generally connecting from (e.g., city, state, country), but we do not use it to identify you personally.
    2. Browser Type: This refers to the software you use to access the Internet, such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc. Knowing your browser type helps us ensure the website functions properly for you.
  • Operating System: This is the software that runs your device, such as Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS, etc. Understanding your operating system helps us optimize our Site’s performance for your device.
  1. Mobile Device Information (if applicable): If you visit our Site on a smartphone or tablet (on some devices, Site functionality may be limited) we may collect information about your mobile device, such as its IP address, browser type, operating system, and other similar data.
  2. Other similar device data.
  • Browsing Activity:
    1. The pages you visit: This helps us understand which content on our Site is most popular and interesting to users.
    2. Time spent on pages: Knowing how long you stay on a page helps us gauge how engaging our content is.
  • Clickstream data (server address and domain name): This is a record of the path you take as you navigate through our Site. It helps us understand how users interact with the Site and identify areas for improvement.
  1. Referring URLs: The web page address that linked you to our Site. This helps us understand how users are finding our Site.
  2. Other similar browsing data.


  1. Personal Information You Voluntarily Provide: We collect your personal information when you choose to provide it to us. This includes when you interact with our Site (downloading resources, leaving comments), communicate with us directly (email, phone calls), register for an account, make purchases, subscribe to our services, participate in promotions or surveys, or provide feedback.  Please note, browsing our Site does not require you to provide any personal information.  By voluntarily sharing your personal information, however, you consent to its collection and use as described in this Policy.
  2. General Information Automatically Gathered Through Technology: We may collect information indirectly through your browser or device when you engage with our services, using cookies and other similar tracking technologies — like web beacons and pixels.
    • Cookies: We collect this information using cookies, tiny data files stored on your device by websites you visit, primarily to enhance your browsing experience and provide you personalized content. You can control or disable cookies through your browser settings, but some features of the Site may not work as intended if you do. Two types of cookies include:
      1. Standard Cookies (HTTP or Browser Cookies): These are the most common type of cookie. They are stored within your web browser and typically store text-based data such as user preferences or session IDs. You can easily manage them through your browser settings, and they can be either session-based (temporary cookies that are erased from your device when you close your web browser) or persistent (cookies that remain on your device for a predetermined period set by the website, even after you close your browser).
      2. Flash Cookies (Local Shared Objects or LSOs): Although less popular, Flash cookies are stored within Adobe Flash Player on your device, not your browser. They offer more capabilities and are often used for tracking user behavior across websites and storing multimedia data.  Although standard browser cookies are managed through the browser’s settings, Flash cookies are managed separately through Adobe Flash settings and can store more information than standard cookies.
    • Web Beacons: Web beacons (also known as tracking pixels or web bugs) are tiny graphic elements embedded within web pages or emails. These invisible elements work with cookies to monitor user activity, such as page views or clicks. When a user interacts with a web beacon, it transmits data back to a server for analysis.  This helps us understand how users engage with our Site and emails.
    • Social Media Pixels: Unlike web beacons, social media pixels are specific tracking elements used by social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. Embedded within web pages or emails, they track user interactions with content related to those platforms, such as likes, shares, or comments. This data helps social media advertisers or content creators measure the effectiveness of their campaigns and target their audience more precisely.
    • Please note, we may use cookies and other tracking technologies, including web beacons and social media pixels, to understand your preferences, improve your experience on our Site, and remember your login credentials (if applicable). Disabling cookies or tracking technologies might limit your Site experience and prevent certain features from functioning as intended.
    • Do Not Track Signals: Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals are requests from users to websites, asking them not to track their online activities, such as browsing behavior and interactions with websites. Please note that our Site does not currently respond to DNT signals or similar mechanisms from web browsers. Although we do not directly honor DNT signals, we provide alternative options for managing your online privacy preferences, such as adjusting your browser settings to control tracking, opting out of certain tracking technologies, utilizing privacy-focused browser extensions or tools, or otherwise detailed in our Policy.
  • Information From Other Sources: We may collect information from third-party sources, in accordance with this Policy and applicable laws and regulations. These sources may include, but are not limited to:
    • Advertising networks, service providers, affiliates, business partners, data analytic providers, operating systems and platforms, social networks, public forums (particularly when you mention or reference us), and other third-party sources.
    • Use of Google Analytics and Google Ads: We utilize Google Analytics and on occasion Google Ads to gather information on how users interact with our Site. This information may include your location, browsing history, traffic pattern, pages you visit, how long you spend on each page, the links you click, the information you search for on our Site, the equipment used to access the Site, along with other general information. This data is used to improve our Site and deliver targeted advertising.  It’s important to note that the information collected by Google Analytics and Google Ads is anonymized and cannot be used to directly identify you.  By continuing to use our Site, you consent to the collection and use of information by Google Analytics and Google Ads as described in this Policy.  However, if you’d like to opt out of cookies, you can visit the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on page here: For more details about Google Analytics and Google Ads, please visit these links:

We take the security of your information very seriously.

  1. Storage: We employ secure storage practices to safeguard your information. This includes using industry-standard safeguards to protect your data while it’s stored on our systems.
  2. Data Retention: We retain your information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, as outline in this Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted to comply with legal, accounting, reporting, dispute resolution, or enforcement of our agreement requirements. The specific retention period for different types of information may vary based on the nature of the information and the purposes for which it is processed.  Once the retention period expires, we will securely delete or anonymize your personal information in a manner that prevents its reconstruction or restoration. For example:

We comply with both GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and CAN-SPAM Act (Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act) of 2003 for email marketing practices.

  1. GDPR: Under GDPR, we require affirmative consent from individuals before sending marketing emails, emphasizing transparency, individual rights, and data protection principles. This means that individuals must actively opt-in to receive marketing communications from us.  Additionally, GDPR grants individuals enhanced rights over their personal data, including the right to access, correct, and delete their data. (More on GDPR forthwith.)
  2. CAN-SPAM: In contrast, although CAN-SPAM allows sending commercial emails without prior consent, it focuses on regulating the behavior of commercial email messages, such as prohibiting deceptive subject lines or headers, and requiring clear sender identification with a valid address, as well as clear opt-out mechanisms.
  • We respect your privacy and control over your inbox: To comply with both regulations and ensure transparency, we:
    • Require your consent:We only send marketing emails to users who actively opt-in to receive them.
    • Make unsubscribing easy:Every marketing email we send includes a clear and functional unsubscribe mechanism as indicated in this Policy, which we promptly honor all unsubscribe requests.
    • Provide clear sender information:Our emails will identify us as the sender and include our contact information and a relevant subject line.


If you are located in the European Union (“EU”) or the European Economic Area (“EEA”), the GDPR may grant you certain additional rights regarding your personal data, including:

  1. Right to Access: You have the right to request a copy of the personal data we hold about you.
  2. Right to Rectification: You have the right to request that we correct any inaccurate or incomplete personal data.
  • Right to Erasure (Right to be Forgotten): Under certain circumstances, you have the right to request that we erase your personal data.

We understand the sensitive nature of children’s privacy online and are firmly committed to its protection.  Our Site is intended for a general audience of individuals aged 18 and over.  We do not direct any of our content at children under 18 years of age.

We do not knowingly collect personal information from individuals under the age of 18.  If you are under the age of 18 and your parent or guardian has not provided verifiable parental consent, do not provide any personal information.  Personal information submitted by one under the age of 18 without prior verifiable parental or guardian consent will not be accepted.  If we learn or have reason to suspect that a Site user is under age 18 without prior verifiable parental or guardian consent, we will promptly delete any personal information in that user’s account.  If you are a parent or guardian and become aware that your child has provided us with personal information, please send an e-mail message to so we can take appropriate action to remove such information from our records.  Please include your child’s name and any relevant details in your request.  We will take steps to verify your identity and process your request promptly, in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

We may collect certain non-personally identifiable information (e.g., browsing data collected through cookies) during a user’s visit, regardless of age.  This information is used for general Site analytics purposes, such as understanding traffic patterns and improving user experience, therefore it may be used as indicated in this Policy.  We do not use this information to identify individual users or create user profiles.

Our Policy complies with the following:

  1. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA):
    • The United States’ Federal Trade Commission, which strives to protect consumers and promote competition in the marketplace, enforces COPPA. Under COPPA, websites or online services directed at children under 13 years of age, and either collecting personal information from them OR allowing others to do so, must comply with COPPA’s requirements. Furthermore, COPPA requirements apply to websites or online services directed to a general audience, but have actual knowledge that they collect personal information from children under 13.  Similarly, COPPA also applies to companies running an ad network or plug-in having actual knowledge of collecting personal information from website or service users directed to children under 13.  To help give parents and guardians control over what personal information is collected from their children under age 13, as well as to protect the children’s privacy and safety while using the Internet, such websites and online services must provide privacy policies outlining what and how the personal information of children under 13 years of age is collected, used, and disclosed.  Moreover, the privacy policy must include a description of parental/guardian rights, including the steps for exercising these rights, informing parents/ guardians that only necessary information for their child’s participation is requested, and parents/guardians can review, delete, and restrict further collection or use of such information.  It also permits them to consent to data collection and withhold disclosing such information to third parties unless it’s part of the service. Furthermore, they are required to obtain verifiable parental/guardian consent before collecting, using, or disclosing the personal information of children under 13.  In addition, they must take reasonable steps to ensure the security of the personal information they collect from children.
    • Our Policy complies with COPPA, as we do not knowingly collect, use, or disclose personal information from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental or guardian consent, as we require verifiable parent/guardian consent for anyone under the age of 18. If you believe that the personal information of a child was collected, used, or disclosed, without parental or guardian consent, please send an e-mail message to so we can have the information deleted.

  2. California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA):
    • Our Policy also complies with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which is expanded upon forthwith and may provide California residents under 16 years of age with additional rights regarding the collection and sale of their personal information.
    • Under the CCPA, businesses are prohibited from selling or sharing the personal information of California consumers whom they have actual knowledge of being under 16 years of age, unless the child has provided their affirmative authorization (or opt-in consent) to the sale or sharing of their personal information. If the child, however, is under 13, the authorization must come from the child’s parent or guardian.  A business has “actual knowledge” of a consumer’s age if it willfully disregards it.  The renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating a consumer’s personal information to another business or third-party for monetary or other valuable consideration is considered selling, whereas if it’s done for generally another purpose is considered sharing.
  • Our Commitment: We adhere to these provisions by not only ensuring that we obtain opt-in consent from a parent or guardian if the user is under 13 years of age, before engaging in any selling or sharing of their personal information, but we also require opt-in consent from the parent or guardian of those under 18 years of age.
