Living Skills™ Online Courses Privacy Policy


This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for Living Melodies® as related to its Living Skills™ online courses. It specifically outlines how we collect, use, and protect users' personal information. By visiting livingskills.thinkific.com, you accept and agree to the terms and conditions of this privacy policy. This privacy policy applies to information we collect on this website and through e-mail or other voluntary electronic message exchanges. It does not apply to information collected by any third party, including through any application or content that may be accessible from this website. In particular, by visiting this website you consent to our collection and use of your personal information as described in this privacy policy, including any updates or revisions to this privacy policy. We do not knowingly provide services or sell products to children under the age of 18. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 18, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 18, please contact us using the information provided below.

What information do we gather about you?

We do not collect personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily provide it, such as when you provide email contact information to subscribe to the Living Melodies® email list newsletter, send course feedback, register for one of Living Skills™ online courses, or respond to a survey. At your request, we will remove your contact information from our files.

What do we use your information for?

The primary purpose of the information we do collect allows students to fully utilize the online learning platform when creating an account at livingskills.thinkific.com or paying for courses via the online payment processor. This information may include but is not limited to name, email, mailing address, phone number, electronic device information, and cookies. Personal information other than name and email is not collected or viewed by Living Melodies® directly but by our aforementioned payment processor. If you voluntarily provide your email address or other contact information, we might also use it to inform you of changes to courses or policies, to survey you about your use or opinion of our online course offerings, or to ask for your support. Your IP address may be used to validate direct link coupon codes and affiliate links, to help diagnose problems with the online course server or website, and to evaluate the efficacy of certain features of the website. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that user sessions will be tracked, but the users will remain anonymous.

User information may be shared with third-party partners to the extent necessary to provide and improve web services or other communications to users. Any third parties who receive user information for this purpose are prohibited from using or sharing user information for any purpose other than providing services to users. We may also provide your information to third parties in circumstances where we believe that doing so is necessary or appropriate to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request; detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; or protect the rights, property, or safety of us, our users, or others.

What device information do we collect?

We may collect non-personal information about the computer, mobile device, or other device you use to access livingskills.thinkific.com such as IP address, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language or other information of this nature. We use this information to track access to our website and specific online courses. At no time do we disclose site usage by individual IP addresses.
