Michael Levan Respects Your Privacy

This Policy explains when and why we collect personal information about people who visit our website or web application, how we use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others, and how we keep it secure.

We may change this policy occasionally, so please check this page occasionally to ensure that you’re happy with any changes. By using our website or web application, you’re agreeing to be bound by this policy. Where possible we will notify you of any changes in policy within the Michael Levan Studio.

Any questions regarding this policy and our privacy practices should be sent by email to info@michaellevan.net

What Personal Data Do We Collect?

Personal Data You Provide to Us Voluntarily – We collect information about you that you voluntarily provide to us when you: (i) contact us to learn more about Michael Levan, subscribe to a mailing list, or explore other opportunities you indicate are of interest at the time; (ii) access or use Michael Levan’s services; or (iii) contact customer service. This information may include, for example, your name, business name, and any other information that you choose to provide to us when you comment on materials on our Michael Levan services, to contact you as a potential customer, or to respond to a support request. This also includes technical data, such as IP addresses and device identifiers commonly generated when establishing a connection with Michael Levan services. Payment information collected is processed securely by our payment processor and is not stored in Michael Levan’s databases. This is bound by our processor’s privacy policy and will not be passed on to third parties under any circumstances.

Other Data – By using the Michael Levan services, we may store information about what pages have been visited and when. This is to help us improve the usability of our services.

Retention – We collect and retain personal data submitted to Michael Levan in an identifiable format for the amount of time necessary to meet your request or fulfill our legal or regulatory obligations unless it is in our legitimate business interests and not prohibited by law to maintain the personal data for longer periods.

How Do We Process Personal Data?

We may use the information for our legitimate interests, namely:

  • To operate Michael Levan services.
  • To contact and communicate with you when you reach out to ask us about our Michael Levan services.
  • To manage everyday business needs.
  • To analyze or improve Michael Levan services or additional products or services.
  • To protect Michael Levan services and the rights of users and others to enforce the terms of Michael Levan services.
  • To comply with our obligations, including complying with all applicable laws and regulations.
  • To send you promotional materials from us or on behalf of our affiliates and business partners if you have consented to the receipt of such materials.
  • To track the performance of any advertising campaigns we are running on social media platforms.

Who Has Access to Your Information?

Under no circumstances will we directly disclose or sell your personal information to any third party without your prior permission. We are strongly against any form of internet ‘spam’ and keep all collected information strictly confidential by the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

We will not sell or provide your information to third parties for marketing purposes.

Third-Party Services Working on Our Behalf

We may pass your information to our third-party service providers, or other associated organizations to complete tasks and provide services to you on our behalf (for example processing payments and providing sales/technical support). However, when we use third-party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their direct marketing purposes.

Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties beyond the Michael Levan network for them to use for their direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the prevention of fraud or other crime.

When you are using our secure online payment system, your payment is processed by a third-party processor, which specializes in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card and PayPal transactions. If you have any questions regarding secure transactions, please contact us.

Michael Levan’s infrastructure is managed by multiple service providers (for example, Amazon Web Services). However, they do not have access to any personal information and are prohibited from selling or passing on any stored data.

From July 2021, to track the performance of our advertising efforts on Facebook, we may send data using their Conversions API when a new user signs up to use Michael Levan’s services or an existing collaborator signs up for a trial. This data is limited to your sign-up email address, web browser user agent, and anonymized IP address. Any information sent to Facebook for processing is only used for advertising performance tracking by us. Facebook does not collect or pass on this data. You can opt out of personalized ad targeting at any time via your profile settings within Facebook. This change does not affect existing users.

Security and Your Data

We take data security very seriously. Our databases are backed up regularly, and any data collected from you is sent over an encrypted SSL secure connection. The security of our data is important to us, and we take every possible reasonable measure to prevent loss, damage, theft, or misuse where possible.

Any data processed by one of the third parties working on our behalf is also sent over an encrypted SSL connection. Third parties are contracted to provide a high level of security on their systems.
