Data We Collect
Data from You
We collect personal information from you when you interact with us, whether in person or through our Site. For example, when you sign up to receive our newsletter or create an account with Beyond Barriers to use our services, we collect information like your name and email address.
As is customary, the Site will collect information, including technical and routing information about your computer, without you being prompted. This may include geolocation data and internet or other electronic network activity, such as device identifiers and advertising identifiers. We use this information to optimize our Site for our users’ use.
Cookies & Web Analytics
Some information, like IP addresses, operating systems, browsers, and browsing patterns, is either tracked or collected using “cookies” (which are small data files that a website places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes) or “web beacons” (which are transparent pixel images that are used in collecting information about website usage). We use these to ensure our content improves and meets your, and other visitors’, needs. While most of the cookies we use will “disappear” when you finish browsing, we also use persistent cookies. Persistent cookies stay on your device simply to ensure we recognize your device when you revisit the Site.
Please note that there are options on most browsers (like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and Microsoft Edge) to disable cookies. You can choose to use such features to disable cookies, but it may impact your use of certain functions included in the Site. Also, our Site prompts you to select your cookie preferences, which you can manage here: https://knowledge.hubspot.com/reports/customize-your-cookie-tracking-settings-and-privacy-policy-alert. To learn more about your ability to manage cookies and web beacons, please consult the privacy features in your browser.
We may use Google Analytics to collect information about your use of the Site.
We do not respond to web browser “do not track” signals or other similar mechanisms.
Other Data We Collect
Whenever you use our services, you may provide us with personal information, like your email address, when you send us an email or sign up to receive communications from us. The data we collect depends on the type of interaction with you, but generally consists of contact information like your name, telephone number, address and email address. If you use our services, we may also collect or create information concerning services you have used, survey information, demographic information, and other personal information concerning use of our services. If you interact with us by participating in a podcast, we collect contact information and your professional information. If you are a user of our services through a license purchased by another organization, like your employer, we may obtain personal information about you from that organization, like contact information, job title, and demographic information.
Our Site is not intended for children under the age of 13 and we do not collect personal data concerning a known child.
How We Use Your Data
All of the data we collect from and about you is collected and processed to provide our services and make our Site better. We do not sell your personal information. If we deidentify or aggregate your information, for example to assess Site performance or measure the effectiveness of our program, we will not reidentify or disaggregate that information. We do not currently share deidentified or aggregated data with third party service providers in support of our services, but if we do so in the future we will obligate them to not reidentify or disaggregate such information.
Otherwise, we use your personal information to:
- communicate with you (like when we respond to an email that you have sent to us);
- market to you (such as when we make suggestions on what services you may like or send you a newsletter);
- provide customer support (like when you are having a problem with the Site);
- generate insights that do not identify you (like trend information concerning Site usage or effectiveness of our services); and
- protect ourselves, other users, and the Site from fraudulent or illegal activity.
How We Share Data with Third Parties
Like most organizations, we use third parties, such as Internet Service Providers, software companies and others, to facilitate our services to you. In doing so, we may need to share certain personal information concerning you to those third party service providers. We only share the personal information necessary for those third party service providers to help us provide services to you. If you participate a program such as our coaching program, certain information will be shared with the third party professionals who help us carry out such programs. In these situations, third parties who receive your information are contractually bound to use your information only for the intended purpose and not to disseminate it further.
If you are using our services through a license with another organization, like your employer, we may share your personal information with that organization.
We store your personal information for as long as necessary for the purpose for which we originally collected it, or for as long as we have another legitimate business purpose for retain the information, like in backups or under retention obligations under applicable law.
Otherwise, we may also share your personal information with third parties, like law enforcement, where required by law.

- the right to confirm that we process personal information concerning you;
- the right to obtain a copy of the personal information we process concerning you;
- the right to correct or update your personal information;

Security of your personal information is very important to us. We utilize generally accepted and reasonable security methods, including administrative, technical and physical safeguards, to lessen the risk of unauthorized access, alteration, destruction, or disclosure of your information. Our methods are frequently tested and improved. Nonetheless, no network, website, or communication using the Internet is perfectly secure. We will work to protect your information, but we cannot guarantee the safety of any information you send to us, and you do so at your own risk. In the unlikely case of a compromise of your personal information, we inform you of the incident as required by law. Please note that email is an unsecure method of communication. Please do not send us any personal information that you would like to protect via unsecured email.
