Privacy Policy

Under construction…more info coming soon!!!

Dreamcatcher Careers LLC Privacy Policy

Last Updated: April 10, 2019

We at Dreamcatcher Careers LLC (Dreamcatcher Careers) understand that you share your dreams with us. As part of that, you may share personal information with us, and you want to ensure that your personal information is treated respectfully.  We take that responsibility seriously and it governs how we conduct our business. Please read the following to learn more about our Privacy Policy.  By visiting our websites (collectively called the “Websites”) or using any information, features, content, or applications offered online by Dreamcatcher Careers (collectively, the “Services”) in any manner, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy, and you consent to our collection and use of your information in the following ways.  You also consent to our Terms of Use[PG1] (https://www.dreamcatchercareers.com/terms-and-conditions/), our Cookie Policy[PG2] (https://www.dreamcatchercareers.com/cookie-policy/), and our Refund Terms[PG3] (https://www.dreamcatchercareers.com/refund-policy/).  That’s a lot of red tape to peel, but please read on and you will discover that we really do value you and we do, in fact, treat your information with care and respect.

TLDR 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The CliffNotesVersion: We collect certain information automatically when you visit the Websites, like your IP address, device information, browser version, etc. This information may disclose your location and information like what phone you use but really doesn’t identify you in any way.  This information is deleted over time, though we may retain aggregated, anonymized data indefinitely so we can pat ourselves on the back about site visits and conversions and things like that we try to improve over time.  We may also collect personally identifiable information you volunteer to provide, like your name and email if you sign up for the newsletter. We use that information only for the purpose you provided it for and for no other reason.  We never sell or rent your personally identifiable information to third parties, but we may share it solely to provide you with the Services. Think Mailchimp and similar third parties, which we may use from time to time.  Still, we will give you the option to opt out of further communications from us at any time.  We can let you know what personal information we have about you upon request and we will destroy that personal information if you ask us to.

If you become a client of ours, we will get more detailed personal information from you in the process of guiding and grooming you to not only make your career dreams come true but to haunt the dreams of others with your cosmic brilliance.  We will gather that information through secure emails. None of that information will be available through a website or cloud service.  You are a star, not just another drop of rain.  You don’t belong in a cloud.  And we even remove the information from our secure email server periodically (about every five business days, but it could stay there for up to two weeks if, you know, it’s the holiday season or whatever).  All your information will be stored on local computers administered and secured by Dreamcatcher Careers, behind a firewall with anti-malware and antivirus protection.  If you are a client, we will provide you with documents when we complete our engagement with you, and we will retain those documents on local computers for a period of up to twelve (12) months just in case you lose your copy.  The documents will then be securely destroyed, though we will keep basic personal contact information about you (name, address, phone number, web and social media links, email address, and similar information) indefinitely so we can contact you with offers and follow-ups and birthday wishes and other things we hope will make you smile.  You can always opt out of receiving further communications from us (☹). You can also ask and we will tell you what personal information we have about you and we will even destroy that personal information if you ask us to.  If you have any questions, please write to us at privacy@dreamcatchercareers.com.

Now, you need to read The Long Version to get details about all of this, so please grab a Red Bull and jump right in.  We tried not to make this too boring.

The Long Version

Why Do You Need a Long Version?

Don’t ask us.  Ask our lawyers, who will refer you to your lawmakers. Seriously, every company out there has a Privacy Policy that starts with “We value your privacy” or “We take your privacy seriously,” but if they did, lawmakers wouldn’t need to pass all these laws and Dreamcatcher Careers wouldn’t need to hire a law firmjust to put up Websites so we can help you find your own luminary self. This should be easier.

And, in case you can’t tell, we did not just copy and paste the Privacy Policy from Game of Thrones Wineslike everybody else does.  But we might have had a glass or three.

What Does This Privacy Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy covers our treatment of personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that we gather when you are accessing or using our Services.  This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to individuals that we do not employ or manage.  So, you know, we have a presence on LinkedIn[PG4] and Facebook[PG5] and Twitter[PG6] and Instagram, and we link to those sites. We also post YouTube[PG7] videos on our Websites. (YouTube is owned by Google.)  We don’t own any of those companies.  Yet. When you use those companies or their services, even if it’s a video embedded in our Websites, you are agreeing to those companies’ terms of service and privacy policies.  How complicated, right?

We do not knowingly collect or solicit Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to sign up for the Services. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to sign up for any of our Services or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, email address, or an awesome hand-drawn picture we might stick on the fridge and cherish every morning. No one under age 13 may provide any Personal Information to us or may use the Services. In the event that we learn that we have collected Personal Information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at privacy@dreamcatchercareers.com.  But really, if you are under 13 and you are reading this Long Version of our Privacy Policy, please contact us in a few years because you must be some kind of genius and we would love to work with you in a few years.  But in the meantime, go away. No, seriously.  Go. Now.

We gather various types of Personal Information from our users, as explained more fully below.  We may use this Personal Information to personalize and improve our services, to contact users, to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to analyze how users utilize the Services, and as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy. We may share certain types of Personal Information with third parties, as described above.

What Information Does Dreamcatcher Careers Collect?

  1. Information You Provide to Us.

We receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us.  For example, when you sign up for the newsletter, we collect Personal Information, including but not limited to, your name and email address, along with your IP address, location, and device/browser information. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of some of our Services.  We may aggregate and anonymize your Personal Information so that you cannot be individually identified for keeping metrics about our performance on the web.  We like success as much as you do, and we think it’s healthy to pat yourself on the back every now and then if your brand is doing well.  We use metrics to justify all that back-patting.

If you have provided us with a means of contacting you, we may use such means to communicate with you. For example, we may send you promotional offers on behalf of other businesses we think might be useful to you (like businesses that cater to cool, up-and-coming professionals) or we may communicate with you about your use of the Services.  Also, we may receive a confirmation when you open a message from us. This confirmation helps us make our communications with you more interesting and improve our services. By that we mean that it helps us make our communications with you more interesting to usbecause it lets us know that you actually read our emails, which we work pretty hard to keep informative and motivational and fun. If you do not want to receive communications from us, you can opt out by emailing us at privacy@dreamcatchercareers.com.  

Please note that we may send you notices when our prices change, or our policies change, like this privacy policy.  If you choose not to receive legal notices from us, those legal notices will still govern your use of the Services, and you are responsible for reviewing those legal notices for changes. We work hard on these things, too.  

  • Information Collected Automatically.

Whenever you interact with our Services, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, “cookie” information, and the page you requested. “Cookies” are identifiers we transfer to your computer or mobile device that allow us to recognize your browser or mobile device and tell us how and when pages and features in our Services are visited and by how many people.  You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or mobile device to prevent or limit your computer or device’s acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features.  If you click on a link to a third-party website, that third party may also transmit cookies to you.  This Privacy Policy does not cover the use of cookies by any third parties. Or, really, the use of any third-party website.  This is about us.  Just us. Did we mention that we have a separate Cookie Policy?  Read our Cookie Policy Here[PG8] .  Our lawyers earned their money.

When we collect usage information (such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Websites), we only use this data in aggregate form, and not in a manner that would identify you personally.  For example, this aggregate data tells us how often users use parts of the Services, so that we can make the Services appealing to as many users as possible.  But not to people under 13, who should have stopped reading by now.  Good. Anyway, this information may also be accessible to third parties.  For instance, we might use Google Analytics or some other third-party service to collect and distill our metrics for us.  Because, frankly, don’t know how to do that ourselves and there’s nothing terrible about letting experts handle that kind of thing.  But we do not share information that can identify you in this way. We do not knowingly share your Personal Information with third parties except to deliver Services you have requested.

Will Dreamcatcher Careers Share Any of the Personal Information it Receives?

We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information in personally identifiable form to anyone. However, we do share your Personal Information with third parties as described above and here:

  1. Affiliated Businesses and Third-Party Websites We Do Not Control: In certain situations, businesses or third-party websites we’re affiliated with may sell items or provide services to you through the Services (either alone or jointly with us).  For instance, we might send you a FedEx.  We will share your name, address, and telephone number with FedEx so they can deliver your package to you.  We must do things this way until we own FedEx.  To track your FedEx package (we will send you a link), you will use a third-party website. 

It will be clear to you when we use an affiliated business.  Like, we will tell you that we are sending you a FedEx. We will share your Personal Information with that affiliated business only to the extent that it is necessary to complete the transaction or service you requested. We have no control over the policies and practices of third-party websites or businesses as to privacy or anything else, so if you choose to take part in any transaction or service related to an affiliated website or business, please review those businesses’ or websites’ policies.  

  • Agents: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Again, think Mailchimp.  But we might also hire, for instance, independent contractors to type stuff up for you or recover stuff from our computers or whatever. Unless we tell you differently, our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.  
  • Business Transfers: We may choose to buy or sell assets.  In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that would be transferred.  Also, if we (or our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, Personal Information would be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.  If we own FedEx one day, we might sell FedEx and, sorry, your information is part of that deal.
  • Protection of Dreamcatcher Careers and Others: We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we reasonably believe is necessary to comply with law or court order; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Dreamcatcher Careers, our employees, our users, or others.  This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Bad people bad.
  • With Your Consent: Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your Personal Information may be shared with third parties in personally identifiable form, and you will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.  This is the catch-all, just in case we did not think of something.  The lawyers made us put this in.  We would have preferred to have ended with “Bad people bad.”

Is Personal Information About Me Secure?

We will take reasonable steps to protect your information.  Nobody can guarantee complete, absolute security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of our information and yours.  Still, only personal information entered online will be stored online, and it will be encrypted for your protection.  Personal Information clients share for us via email or other means to perform our Services will never be stored online, but will instead be stored on encrypted, secure, local machines.  While we still can’t guarantee complete, absolute security, that’s not too shabby.

But remember that we might share some personal information with partners and affiliates, like Mailchimp or independent contractors. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices of companies we don’t own or control.  Also, no matter how much we both believe that we should control the internet, we are not responsible for the privacy policies of sites we link to on this site, like Facebook or LinkedIn. When following a link to another site you should read that site’s privacy policy, though we promise you that it will be far more tedious and boring than this one.

What Personal Information Can I Access?

If you follow a link to unsubscribe to our newsletter, you can update your Personal Information. You can also opt in or out of receiving communications from us.  You can also email us to ask us what Personal Information we have about you and then you can ask us to delete it.  That’s right. Unless we have a reason to hold onto it for a while — like you placed an order for something so we need to hold your information in case you try to do a chargeback — we will delete your information. If you have any questions or want to actually do those things, please contact us at privacy@dreamcatchercareers.com.

Under California law, California residents are entitled to contact us to prevent disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for such third parties’ direct marking purposes.  You can contact us about that, too, at privacy@dreamcatchercareers.com, but we won’t sell or rent your Personal Information for any reason. But feel free to email us anyway.  We like getting email.

What Options Do I Have?

You can always opt not to disclose information to use, but keep in mind some information may be needed to register with us or to take advantage of some of our Services or our Websites’ features.

You may request deletion of your information by emailing us at privacy@dreamcatchercareers.com. Please note that some information may remain in our records — for example, in backups we make in case of disaster — after your request of deletion of such information. We may use any aggregated data derived from or incorporating your Personal Information after you update or delete it, but not in a manner that would identify you personally. Please also note that comments you post publicly on our Websites, such as comments on our blog posts, will remain visible to the public. For the most part, we turn off comments to evade trolls and haters, so you shouldn’t need to worry about that, not only because you can’t leave comments, but because we know you are not a hater.

If you have any questions about viewing or updating information we have on file about you, please contact us at privacy@dreamcatchercareers.com. Under California law, California residents are entitled to ask us for a notice identifying the categories of Personal Information which we share with our affiliates and/or third parties for marketing purposes, and providing contact information for such affiliates and/or third parties.  If you are a California resident and would like a copy of this notice, please submit a written request to privacy@dreamcatchercareers.com.  Like we said, we don’t rent or sell your Personal Information, and we don’t share your Personal Information except to provide you with something you asked for. So, we might send you a package and then FedEx will get your Personal Information so they can deliver the package. 

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time.  Use of information we collect now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time the information is used.  If we make changes in the way we use Personal Information, we will notify you by posting an announcement on our Websites, via our newsletter, or by sending you a message if you have opted into a means of communication or are a client.  You are bound by any changes to the Privacy Policy when you use the Services after such changes have been first posted.

Questions or Concerns

If you have any questions or concerns regarding our privacy policies, please send us a detailed message to privacy@dreamcatchercareers.com, and we will try to resolve your concerns.
