I may also collect information that cannot be used to directly identify you, such as browser type, Dynamic Internet Protocol (IP) address, “click stream” data, and similar non-personally identifiable information. For example, I may aggregate non-personal information about you and other customers who visit certain areas of my Site. Aggregated information will not contain any information that can be linked directly back to you.

European Union visitors:
To the best of our awareness, we have taken all steps necessary to comply with GDPR regarding the collection, use and retention of personal data before May 25, 2018. I find that mutual trust is the basis for long-standing relationships and I would never wish to violate that trust. If in some way you are aware that I have not complied with this EU law, please do submit it to my attention so that we may correct it immediately. You can do so via email at morella (at) thrivewithmorella.com
2. Collection of personal information through websites
Information is automatically collected through your use of the Site, and affiliates’ websites (if any), through cookies. Cookies are tiny text files that websites or apps may place on your computer or device.

d. helping me tailor existing or develop new products, services or offers, and to help me selectively target promotional offers and opportunities;

Direct marketing and opting out
By providing your address and email address to me you consent to me contacting you for the purposes set out above. I may send this information in a variety of ways, including by mail, email, and social media.
If at any point you no longer wish me to hold your personal information or you do not wish to receive information from me then there are a number of ways you can unsubscribe:

c. using the unsubscribe link that I include in my electronic messages (e.g. email) to opt out of receiving those messages. Each "unsubscribe" link only relates to that specific type of communication (e.g. marketing communications or survey communications). This means that unsubscribing from marketing communications will not automatically unsubscribe you from my survey communications (or vice versa). Please also note that you may continue to receive communications which are already en route to you for a short period of time while your relevant unsubscribe request is being processed.

I may share your personal information with third parties where appropriate for the purposes set out above, including:

b. contracted service providers or partners, including: information technology service providers (such as the ones who manage my newsletter service); research and statistical analysis providers (if you are completing a survey online); my personal assistants (in the process of serving you as a customer or client); external business advisers (such as auditors and lawyers); and regulatory, investigative or government bodies to comply with laws.
I may also disclose your personal information as is necessary to: (a) comply with a subpoena or court order; (b) cooperate with law enforcement or other government agency; (c) establish or exercise my legal rights; (d) protect my property or safety or that of my employees, contractors, vendors, and suppliers; (e) defend against legal claims; (f) help with internal and external investigations; or (g) as otherwise required by law or permitted by law.
5. Data quality and security
I hold personal information in a number of ways, including in printed documents, electronic databases and email contact lists. Printed documents may be held at my office, or archived in boxes and stored in secure offsite facilities. I take reasonable steps to:
a. ensure that the personal information that I collect, use and disclose is accurate, up to date and complete and (in the case of use and disclosure) relevant;
b. protect the personal information that I hold from misuse, interference and loss and from unauthorized access, modification or disclosure; and
c. destroy or permanently de-identify personal information that is no longer needed for purposes permitted by applicable privacy laws.
You can help me keep your information up to date, by letting me know about changes to your details.
The steps I take to secure personal information include website protection measures and security restrictions on access to my computer systems. While I endeavor to protect the personal information of users of my website, I cannot guarantee the security of information you disclose online: you disclose that information at your own risk. If you are concerned about sending your information over the internet, you can contact me as set out in section 10. You can also help protect your personal information by keeping your account details confidential. If you become aware of any security breach, please let me know as soon as possible.
The Site makes commenting functionality available to you and other users. You are not required to provide any personal information when using these areas but you may choose to do so. If you post personal information online, it will be publicly available and you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties.
By using the commenting features of the Site, you acknowledge that your user name and location information will be disclosed. I cannot ensure the security of any information you choose to make public in a comment. Also, I cannot ensure that parties who have access to such publicly available information will respect your privacy. Please exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in any comments. To request removal of your personal information from my blog, contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. In some cases, I may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case I will let you know if I am unable to do so and why.
Third party sites
Links to third party sites (if any) that are not operated or controlled by me are provided for your convenience only and should be used with your discretion and prudent judgment. I am not responsible for the privacy or security practices of those sites, which are not covered by this policy. Third party websites should have their own privacy and security policies, which I encourage you to read before supplying any personal information to them. Links from my Site to third-party sites do not constitute sponsorship, endorsement, or approval of the content, policies or practices of such third-party sites.
6. Access and correction
Please contact me if you would like to access or correct the personal information that I hold about you. I may ask you to verify your identity before processing any access or correction requests, to make sure that the personal information I hold is properly protected.
I will generally provide you with access to your personal information within 30 days, subject to some exceptions permitted by law. I will also generally provide access in the manner that you have requested (eg by providing photocopies or allowing a file to be viewed), provided it is reasonable and practical for me to do so. I may, however, charge a fee to cover my reasonable costs of locating the information and providing it to you.
If you ask me to correct personal information that I hold about you, or if I believe that the personal information I hold is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, I will take reasonable steps to correct that information to ensure that, having regard to the purpose for which it is held, the information is accurate, up-to-date, complete, relevant and not misleading. If I correct personal information about you, and I have previously disclosed that information to another agency or organization, you may ask me to notify that other entity. If so, I will take reasonable steps to do so, unless this would be impractical or unlawful.
7. Cross Border Disclosure Access and Consent to Transfer
I may disclose personal information to overseas recipients, who are located in places such as Japan, Singapore, India, Hong Kong, the Philippines, the United States of America and other countries or jurisdictions depending on the nature of the services those recipients provide to me (for example storing data via a cloud service, or where my customer relationship management system is hosted on servers located overseas).
By providing me with your personal information, you consent to my use of it in accordance with this policy, including the transfer of your information across international boundaries to jurisdictions anywhere in the world as permitted by local law.
For United States Users:
The United States may not have data privacy laws that are deemed to afford an equal level of protection for your Personal Information as those laws legislated at the direction of the European Union, Australia or geopolitical, national or regional legislative bodies. However, please be assured that I will continue to adhere to the principles stated in this policy and will make reasonable efforts to comply with applicable international, national, regional, territorial, and provincial laws in connection with any information collected through the Site. I will always endeavor to preserve the integrity, confidentiality, and security of personal information and afford such personal information reasonable level of protection.

If you are under 18 years old, please do not provide me with your name, contact details or any other information about yourself.
If I or my internet service providers become aware that a minor or a child under the age of 13 has provided me with personal information without the parental consent, that information will be deleted from my databases.
