Privacy Policy

Badger and Chirp LLC respects and protects the privacy of our clients and users who visit our websites. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect and use information for Badger and Chirp LLC services, including the advertising services, promotions, informational mailings and other offers we provide. By using any services provided by Badger and Chirp LLC, you indicate that you agree to the collection and use of your information by Badger and Chirp LLC as outlined in this Privacy Policy.

Why We Collect Information

Badger and Chirp LLC collects information to improve the services we provide and to present you with information and services that will interest you. We also use your information to measure our success and performance. For example, aggregate information gives us an idea of the number of visitors we attract and how they navigate our websites. It helps us be a better business so we can understand how to help our visitors have better businesses too.

Use of Personal Information

Unless you voluntarily provide personal information for a specific purpose, we do not collect personal information from you. We will never combine any personal information about a user of our site with any aggregate information we collect about that user, whether collected on our site or any advertising service we use. If you choose to provide personal information during registration or when using our services, we use your personal information to provide you with particular product or services that you request.

If your personal information changes or if you wish us to delete it from our records, you may correct, update or delete your information by emailing our Customer Support at support@badgerandchirp.com.

Badger and Chirp LLC will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. However, we may transfer personal information in connection with a sale or merger of Badger and Chirp LLC or the division responsible for the services provided to you. We may also share your personal information, such as your email address, mailing address, etc., with our technical consultants, third party auditors and other third parties who make our site available, enhance its functionality or provide associated services and/or who deal with you in processing your orders and/or delivering content, samples, products, services and gifts and prizes. Yes, we said gifts and prizes. These third parties are not allowed to use personal information except for the purposes of providing the applicable services. In addition, we reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our website. Our site and services are maintained in the United States of America. By using the site and/or services, you authorize the export of personal information to the USA and its storage and use as specified in this policy. We've tried to abide by laws that are compliant with the E.U.'s laws and the GDPR guidelines for data collection but we operate out of the United States of America. 

Our Service may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit. 

We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services. We'll remind you of this again later in this policy because it's important enough to be mentioned twice.

Other Information We Collect and Use

We may collect online identifiers with cookies, such as IP address, browser type and version, and pages you view. We also keep track of how you got to our site and any links you click on to leave our site. Once you leave our site, we do not track you. This aggregate information is analyzed and combined with similar aggregate information of other users and may be collected both on our site and on other sites in our client community. We may share aggregate information with our business partners and other third parties. Such aggregate information is anonymous and does not identify any individual user, and we do not link this automatically collected data to personally identifiable information. You can remove persistent cookies by following the directions found in your Internet browser’s “help” file. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site may be limited. We use your website activity to assist us in offering you a personalized Web experience, assist you with technical support, diagnose problems with our server, and administer our websites, and to tailor our product and service offerings to you. 

Third Party Website Links

Some of our websites provide links to third party websites, such as those of our affiliates, business partners and advertisers. We have no access to or control over their practices. Because Badger and Chirp LLC does not control the information policies or practices of these third party websites, you should review their privacy policies to learn more about how they collect and use personal information.

Security Information

Badger and Chirp LLC stores all data using industry standard security devices, such as firewalls and encryption protocols, to safeguard against unauthorized access to our data. We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures coupled with carefully developed security procedures to protect your information from loss, misuse or unauthorized alteration. When we ask for sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, we protect it through the use of the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol which provides encryption during transmission. Additionally, we use internal and external resources to review the adequacy of our security procedures.

Payment Security Information

We will not store or collect your payment card details. That information is provided directly to our third-party payment processors whose use of your personal information is governed by their Privacy Policy. These payment processors adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of payment information. We never see your credit card number and we can not charge the credit card for you. You set your own guidelines for the credit cards use when you use a third party payment processor. 

We use these payment processors:

Stripe: https://stripe.com/us/privacy

Paypal: https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full

We also use Teachable which has a privacy policy and terms and conditions of their own. They allow us to use third party payment systems like Stripe. You can view Teachable's privacy policy here: https://teachable.com/privacy-policy

Protection for Children

We do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under the age of 18. Please contact us if your child gave personal information to us and you would like it removed from our records. Children under 18 must have parental permission to use our website. 

Your Right to Control and Access Your Information

You have control over your personal information and how it is collected, used, and shared. For example, you have a right to:

  • Change or correct personal data. You can edit any personal data with us by emailing support@badgerandchirp.com.

  • Access and take your data. You can also ask us for a copy of personal data you provided to us by emailing support@badgerandchirp.com and we will get back to you within 30 days.

  • Ask us to stop using or limit our use of your personal data in certain circumstances—for example, if we have no lawful basis to keep using your data, or if you think your personal data is inaccurate.

  • Object to our use of your personal information for marketing purposes. You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by emailing us at support@badgerandchirp.com or by simply clicking the Unsubscribe link in any email you receive.

  • Ask us to delete your data. You have a right to be forgotten and request your personal information on file be deleted by contacting us at support@badgerandchirp.com.

How Long We Will Keep Your Personal Information

We retain personal information that you provide us as long as we consider it potentially useful in contacting you about the product or services you have purchased or our other services, or as needed to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements. We will delete this information from the servers if you so request, as described in “Your Right To Control and Access Your Information” above.
